Don’t Let The Summer Go By Without Visiting This New York Ranch That Has Everything
With so many scenic towns and outdoor activities, it’s not hard to find a destination in New York when you want to take a weekend getaway. But sometimes the difficulty in planning a vacation can be trying to figure out how you’re going to utilize your time and find attractions that aren’t too far from where you’ll be staying. Eliminating all of these issues, Rocking Horse Ranch Resort has everything you could need to have an amazing summer.
Known for being one of America's favorite All-Inclusive Family Resorts, Rocking Horse Ranch is hiding down in the town of Highland.
Making you feel like you've stepped into the Old West, you'll find the resort's rustic charm everywhere you look.
The ranch has several different style rooms to accommodate various size families and guests, the perfect place to sleep soundly after a day of having fun.
Included in your stay, guests of the ranch can enjoy three all-you-can-eat meals each day while they're here.
Instead of worrying about where to go for your meals, you'll be able to feast on delicious dishes that are just steps away from where you'll be sleeping.
The ranch covers 500-acres of land and even has its own private lake, a popular attraction once summer rolls around.
A great adventure for the whole family to take, guests who want to get out on the water can go for a banana boat ride, go kayaking or even hop in one of the paddle boats.
Creating the most magical setting, while you're staying here you'll be able to see beautiful horses roaming all around the property.
A favorite feature of the ranch, all horse riding activities are included in your stay and at your disposal.
Another fun way to get outside while you're vacationing here during the warmer months? Take a ride on the ranch's Mountain Tubing Adventure.
Sit back and relax while the lift pulls you all the way to the top of this huge hill, then get your daily dose of excitment as you go flying down the runways with your friends and family.
Another attraction of the ranch that you'll frequently hear people speak of is the big indoor water park that's also on the property.
Open all year and kept at 85 degrees, the waterpark even has a 250-foot long flume that you won't be able to ride just once.
If you thought the indoor attraction was the only pool here, then guess again! Outside guests can also use the heated pool that has a 125-foot water slide and shaded cabanas that you'll wish you had in your backyard.
When you aren't soaking yourself in fun or off horseback riding on the trails, you can find other ways to keep yourself busy as you walk around the Western town that's been created here.
Spots at the ranch like the Fun Barn will keep younger guests occupied for hours, with a Foam Factory that even has its own air-powered Nerf cannons and a bouncy house.
And you won't want to miss stopping into the Lucky Horseshoe Arcade that has its own mini bowling alley!
Wondering what other unique things you might find at Rocking Horse Ranch?
More than just a safe haven for horses, the ranch also has an Exotic Wildlife Exhibit that gives you a look at some of your favorite furry friends.
Stop by the Goat Rodeo and you can meet the entire bunch of Nigerian Dwarf Goats that call the ranch home and have quite the personalities.
Guests can also give a warm hello to Chip the Camel and his friend Zoey the Zebra... and don't forget about Dunkey the Donkey and her daughter Sadie!
Even caring for Scottish Highland Cows, you'll find it impossible to wipe the smile off of your face while you're befriending the ranch's exotic wildlife.
A wonderful treasure of the Hudson Valley, Rocking Horse Ranch Resort never disappoints!
With so much for guests to experience, you won't regret taking a family vacation here to see what all the fuss is about. Adults looking to escape the every day chaos of life can unwind in one of the saunas or the spa to receive unforgettable massages and other out-of-this-world treatments. Those staying here with younger guests can run around on the playground or take things slow with a stroll through the beautiful gardens that are at the ranch.
