Just a couple of decades ago, travelers relied on word of mouth or sometimes travel books or magazines to plan their out-of-state or international adventures. This made it tough to make the right choice of where to stay, where to eat, or what to do. Sometimes, this made for some excitement and adventure, because travelers didn’t know what to expect upon arrival. But other times, it ended in disappointment.
Today, the internet makes it easier than ever before to plan a vacation. In addition to researching destinations, activities, room types, and more, you can also take advantage of an even greater resource; reviews. Posted by real travelers, reviews on sites like Tripadvisor help to tell you what other websites can’t. You’ll learn about what real travelers experience, what they recommend trying, and, sometimes, what they recommend that other travelers avoid.
Cougar Ridge has received plenty of reviews from real visitors sharing about their stays. Let their words inspire you to book your own stay in 2022.
A Repeat Visitor Who Enjoys the Peace and Beauty of Cougar Ridge
On the fence about booking a stay? Knowing that many happy visitors plan repeat trips, often annually, can help put your mind at ease. This repeat traveler enjoys the rest and relaxation that comes with a stay in one of our Casitas:
“In the past two years I have stayed at Cougar Ridge at least 5 times in one of the Casitas. The peace and tranquility of the ranch coupled with the closeness of great hiking is unbeatable. Relaxing on the casita patio in the afternoon after a long hike while watching the ranch animals just can’t be duplicated. The Casitas are so amazing, stylish while being rustic, comfortable, very well appointed and secluded. I can’t imagine spending time anywhere else.” -Tripadvisor review
Enjoying the Resident Animals and Incredible Views
Visiting with our resident animals is certain to put a smile on your face during your stay. This visitor not only enjoyed visiting with our goats, horses, and alpacas but also the stunning sunsets and sunrises:
“I was captivated by the Capitol Reef area, and was so fortunate to stay at this unique property. Cougar Ridge is clearly a labor of love for the owners, who have poured much heart and soul into every facet of this luxurious yet rustic destination resort. I loved meeting the ranch animals who made this experience so amusing and enjoyable: goats, baby goats, horses, alpacas — and an especially charming cat named “Pattycakes.” The vistas were incredible; yielding sublime sunrises and sunsets. The owners were extremely invested in ensuring a pleasant stay for their guests.” Tripadvisor review
A Great Location for a Family Trip
Planning a trip with your extended family can sometimes be a challenge. You not only need space for everyone but also want to make sure to balance their different interests and needs when selecting a place to stay. Cougar Ridge makes this easy. This family found it to be a great place to enjoy a weekend with their siblings:
“We chose Cougar Ridge for our annual siblings weekend. It was absolutely incredible! The grounds are so peaceful & beautifully maintained. We often saw the ranch hand working hard to ensure that every detail was cared for. It is a working ranch and we loved interacting with the animals! Our casita was nice, clean and so comfortable! The hot tub was the perfect way to end our days and the breakfast that was delivered each morning was so yummy! We enjoyed relaxing morning coffee on the porch and had plenty of coffee options to choose from. Scott, Jake , Bailey & Gary were all so welcoming and went above and beyond to ensure we had a good time! We made forever memories that we I’ll always cherish! We can’t wait to come back with our spouses! The town to Torrey is so quaint and everyone was so friendly. Scott recommended the Hunt & Gather & the Wild Rabbit for dinner and lunch. Both were absolutely amazing! Highly recommended!” -Tripadvisor review
The Perfect Destination for a Wedding
While Cougar Ridge makes for a great weekend destination or the perfect basecamp for your next family vacation, there’s another thing that our property is perfect for; hosting weddings. This family hosted their daughter’s wedding reception on the property, and enjoyed the peace and comfort of our Casitas during what can sometimes be a stressful time:
“We are so happy we came across Cougar Ridge. After countless hours of searching for a place to host our daughters small wedding reception this just seemed perfect. Although the space can hold a very large group it offers everything we need and the coziness we were looking for. We stayed the night in one of the casitas and it was incredibly peaceful and comfortable. We were also surprised with breakfast delivered to our porch the next morning. The owner, his staff have done an amazing job creating a very special place that I’m sure we will travel to in our future as well.” -Tripadvisor review
