This was a repeat stay for us. The first stay we camped. This stay we stayed in a hostel room. The room was very spacious and we had plenty of room to set-up our dog crates. The furniture was comfortable. There was a rocking chair that is soooo comfortable to sit it; I would love one just like it in my home. The bed was perfect! The kitchen was well appointed and had all the pots and pans needed to prepare any meal. The bathroom was tighty and the shower was a great size. Sharing the kitchen and a bath is no problem at all. The separate entries into each room provide privacy. When you are there; buy one of Charlie's steaks! ENJOY! Take a walk down the long driveway and enjoy listening to the cows and taking in all the beauty!

“Maximize your stress relief by staying at the Walnut Hollow Ranch. The setting is serene and beautiful. Every room was immaculate and exceptionally clean. Mattresses and pillows were the same as a five (5) star hotel at a fraction of the cost. Very affordable and accommodating. In all honesty, I was a bit reluctant to experience a hostel type of stay as I was afraid it would be a step back to college dorm days. This was definitely not the case. It was nice to meet and converse with other very nice guests. As an added bonus, we purchased a pound of Charlie's grass fed beef and cooked it on the outdoor grill. It was by far the best hamburgers that I ever tasted. We took six (6) pounds home with us.”

We had an AMAZING stay at Walnut Hollow Ranch! We stayed in early September for 2 nights while we were driving from NJ to FL and Charlie made it very pleasant! He was very quick to answer any of our texts and made us feel very at home. We had our 90-lb Chocolate lab with us and Charlie was more than accommodating! We were allowed to walk our dog all around the property and there was even a special trashcan for doggy bags! One of the nights we bought two of Charlies steaks and they were DELICIOUS! There was a grill provided outside of the barn and a kitchen so we could make sides. The kitchen had a fridge that we were allowed to use. All in all, we had an amazing trip and we definitely will be back to stay again! Also, the barn cat was so precious! We wanted to take her home!!

We came and stay for 2 nights in the Ranch Room. It's a Hostel type room and there is another upstairs, called the Loft. They have RV sites, tent sites, boondocking sites, and the best Angus beef you can get. They are dog and kid friendly. We highly recommend a stay here if you are in the area, passing through or just need some time away. The place is beautiful, the scenery is amazing, and Charlie, the host is the best. This is an actual working cattle ranch. Come and stay, say hi to the cows, horse, donkey and CC the cat.
