It's all about riding and beautiful country at Eatons'. I have been going to Eatons' since I was seven and honestly the ranch has not changed a lot. Sure the cabins have been refurbished and the food is up to date and actually they have added a great full stocked bar, but the feeling is the same friendly and beautiful spot which keeps me coming back every year. Try for a cabin on the Gold Coast. It costs a bit more but you are on the Wolf river which provides adequate Fly Fishing. It is an easy trip from LA or the OC. Hop on Frontier to Denver with a quick jaunt to Sheridan on Great Lakes. The ranch is 20 minutes away. I usually ship my gear to the ranch, along with a case of wine.
Our day at Eatons' starts with a hearty ranch breakfast, while they are saddling our horses and cleaning our cabins. Off we go for our two hour adventure either alone or with a handsome or pretty wrangler. A cold beer when we return for lunch, a nap and off for some fly fishing or hiking. Depending on the season, you can do another afternoon ride or an evening ride.
It is a great family trip. I have also done a girls trip which adds a little humor and maybe ship 2 cases of wine. It is my go to destination every summer. It grounds me back to the beauty of nature.
