We loved our stay at Echo Basin Ranch, even though it was only partially open for business. Just camping amongst the alpine trees with the horses in the field next door was enough for us. Lots of things were not up and running yet during our stay here, but we still loved it and got a good deal. We also celebrated Mother's Day here. Patsy loves horses, so it was a good day!
