Min voksne søn og jeg har I sommeren 2015 gennemført en cowboy-ferie i USA, hvor vi var så heldige at besøge Petra og Mike på deres ranch. Det var et meget vellykket besøg, hvor værtsparret under hele besøget tog sig godt af os med hjemmelavet mad, hygge og ikke mindst rideture og køreture på deres ATV'er. Besøget sluttede af med en tur i byen i Fort Worth, hvor der blev danset line dance, spillet pool og spist store bøffer.

Jeg kan give ranchen min varmeste anbefaling til familieferie, cowboy/dude-ferie eller hvad, der nu matte være på programmet. Tak Petra og Mike.

Med kærlig hilsen

I've been visiting the Valley View Ranch for three weeks and felt extremely welcome from day one on - almost like a part of the family. Mike and Petra made huge efforts to make my stay just wonderful. Every activity I wished for was on the plan for me! I helped out around the ranch as much as I could, so I truly felt as if I were at home on the Ranch. The cabins are designed in a welcoming and warm way (mine was themed "Cowboy" so the furniture and everything matched the theme perfectly). The ambiente is peaceful and the valley view a stunner. In the morning when I woke up I could by chance meet the horses, pigs or cows in front of my cabin, what a nice way to wake up!

The main activity I did was horseback riding. All 4 of the horses are very well trained, friendly and lovable (the same for all the other animals they have - all adorable and welcoming). So if you're beginner or not, you will find the perfect choice of horse for every level of riding.

Mike and Petra are themselves absolutely lovable, friendly, always good for a laugh and most of all extremely generous. If you have an extra wish they'll try to do what they can to make it happen! And there's only one word for Petras cooking skills - amazing!

This place is highly recommended for everyone who is looking for a place to get the "real" Texas feeling with addition of Swiss detail! An absolute must! Saying goodbye was very hard, so I hope I get a chance to come back another time!

My husband needed a break from work so we picked the Valley View Ranch as a retreat. We were truly amazed by everything. The Cabins are new and perfectly clean and most of all - they are BEAUTIFUL!!! We could enjoy the beauty of the Ranch to the fullest. The owners Petra and Mike are very friendly, professional and accommodating. We also booked dinner and we were treated like kings. Thank you Petra for preparing such a wonderful meal. As a topping to the first day was the Jacuzzi time under the starry night. Most beautiful (do not turn the light of the Jacuzzi on, you will see the stars better).

We slept like bears in this nature retreat and were woken up in the morning by the sounds of their many animals. It is amazing to see how nice these animals are treated. Even their two Potbelly pigs get royal treatment at feeding time! Two baby calves keep you busy trying to pet them. We just could not help being amazed by their loving animals.

We had a wonderful relaxing stay at the Ranch. Thank you Petra and Mike for making our weekend getaway such a wonderful memory. My husband truly felt rejuvenated after this calming, sorrow-free weekend.

We will definitely be back!

We had a lovely time on the ranch with our wonderful hosts Petra and Mike. Considering we arrived in snow they very much made the best of things for us and we were able to ride the ATVs, go rifle shooting and even a dip in the hot tub! Not to mention good food and company. It was great to come out of our cabin in the morning to see a horse standing outside. Looking forward to a return visit in warmer weather to go horse riding!!

Howdy Petra og Mike,

dere har overbevist oss at det ikke finnes noen tilfeldigheter, derfor ble altså skjebnen vår styrt av særdeles vennlige Comanche-ånder og vi ble ført til Valley View Ranch i Palo Pinto, Texas. Vi skal takke åndene for alltid!

Den elegante bugalowen med typisk Texas-style innredning, den lekre maten Pera lagte, husdyrene og ikke minst vår høydepunkt – ridetur på Shawnee og Madison – har gjort oppholdet på Valley View Ranch til en vidunderlig og uforglemmelig opplevelse.

Dere er perfekte verter og har en ekstraordinær fingerspissfølelse når det gjelder gjestfrihet. Det klarer bare få!

I tillegg til den fantastiske stjernehimmelen fikk vi et stjerneskudd ...

Vi deler ut alle stjerner som kan ønskes og håper at en vakker dag vil de indianske ånder igjen føre oss til Valley View Ranch – hvem kan vite det?!

Mange hilsener fra det vinterkalde Europa sender

Ilona og Håkon

we truly enjoyed the ranch - you're all great hosts and I love the blending of European culture with Texas. It is truly a unique experience with great people,horses, dogs and cows. I need some more ranch time in my life LOL
