April 2014 FAQs
We know you’re curious to learn more about us, so we thought we would answer some of your most frequently asked questions about Long Hollow Ranch, Dude Ranch vacations, and vacationing in Central Oregon!
What time of year is the B&B open? The B&B is available at all times – weather permitting. During the busy Dude Ranch vacation season (April-October) we may be fully booked, but there are often rooms available then as well.
When are Dude Ranch vacations available? Dude ranch vacations are available primarily from April through October. Weather permitting, guests can be accommodated on the edges of those times when weather permits and staff is available.
Are there airports nearby? The nearest airport is in Redmond (RDM), about 25 minutes from the ranch. Direct flights are available from many major western cities, including Portland, San Francisco, Denver and Salt Lake City. The Portland airport (PDX) is a 3 ½ hour drive by car. There is a shuttle bus available between PDX and RDM.
Is RV parking available at Long Hollow Ranch? We can accommodate two RVs with full hookups. There is room for additional RV parking, but without hookups.
Is laundry service available at the ranch? Our laundry room is located conveniently and is available for guest use. An iron and an ironing board are available.
Are guest rooms air-conditioned? Air conditioners are installed in guest rooms for the summer.
Is TV available? A primary objective of a dude ranch is to provide guests with the opportunity to “get away from it all”, to enjoy the great outdoors and to relate to other folks. For that reason there is no TV in guest rooms nor in the common areas. In the Guest Cottage a TV and DVD are available for watching movies.
What are check-in and check-out times? Check-in time is 3PM and check-out time is noon. If your schedule requires an earlier or later arrival or departure, please let us know and we will do our best to accommodate.
What is included in the guest fee? B&B guests get a nice home cooked breakfast after enjoying a restful night sleep in their comfortable bed. Refreshments are available in the dining room. Books and games are available to be enjoyed both in the house as well as outside on the lawns.
Ranch vacation rates include lodging in a nice room with private bathroom, three generous meals per day and all scheduled ranch activities including trail rides and an optional half-day river rafting trip. Scenic trails in the area are available for hiking and wildlife viewing at any time.
How do I make a reservation? B&B guests can make reservations online on our website www.lhranch.com/stay/rates-reservations. Ranch vacation reservations are made by calling our office directly at 541-923-1901 or by emailing us from the website.
When do I pay? What forms of payment do you accept? Long Hollow accepts payment at the end of your stay. We accept VISA and Mastercard, Travelers’ checks, personal checks or cash. When you make your reservation we record your card number to confirm your reservation. We require a deposit of approximately one third of your invoice at time of reservation.
