Four spectacular days spent with family, friends and significant others here at Almay Ranch. We loved the challenging golf course, game rooms, ponds, hiking trails and of course your lovely home. Thank you for the memories.

Thank you for the wonderful hospitality you provided for my 90th birthday celebration at Almay Ranch. It was the most enjoyable week I’ve spent in a long time. There was so much to do for the whole family and we tried to do it all. I think the funky 9-hole golf course is so fantastic on so many different levels. In this crazy world it is a relief to be someplace where there is beauty, solitude, nature and freedom from all the hi-tech stuff that seems to consume our lives. The lodge is so special, and I will never forget the lovely deck with the magnificent view. There was room for everyone to be together in such comfort and camaraderie.

As we arrived and ventured through the home to the deck overlooking the grand lake, we instantly knew that in the selection process of this beautiful place, Nana had set a new standard, a very high bar that had never before been met and will likely never be equated. The children were on the water in the canoes within minutes of arrival and have thoroughly enjoyed each and every recreational activity offered. Always laughing, totally exhausted, never bored — what more could parents and grandparents ask for!! And for the hardworking adults — absolute peace and tranquility, total relaxation on quiet trails, gently rumbling streams and creeks, and a mirror image lake to reflect stunning natural beauty and life’s blessings.
