Long Hollow RanchHere we are at the start of a New Year, looking forward to the coming season with renewed anticipation to an exciting and fun-filled 2014.

When our Dude Ranch vacation season begins in spring, we always kick it off with the branding weekend. Prior to moving the cattle out to the range pastures, they must carry the LHR brand. Through the range pasture season we have three cattle drives; the first is in spring when we move the cattle to the range pasture, the second is during June when we move them to the second pasture and the third is when they come home about August 1st. A number of our guests come each year to participate in these cattle moving events.

A few of the other activities Long Hollow Ranch guests will enjoy this season include bass fishing, fly fishing, cookouts, river raft trips and golfing at the beautiful nearby courses. We are in the process of setting up LHR golf packages for 2014, so stay posted!

Our next special Bed and Breakfast event scheduled here is our February Couples Special. Because of your schedules, winter weather driving conditions, etc., we are offering the Special Bed and Breakfast Valentine Package through the entire month of February. Details will appear in later blogs, in the Monthly Enews and on our website at www.lhranch.com.

If you are one of the many folks nowadays who have limited time to relax and recreate, Long Hollow Ranch will be offering what we call a “Daycation”. If you just can’t get away for more than a day or a weekend you can come and enjoy a trail ride or fishing and lunch. More details to come – watch for it in upcoming posts!

Now, during the winter months, the LHR staff is preparing for the coming Dude Ranch vacation season. There is always plenty to do, including maintenance and repair, construction, cleaning and so on – things we don’t or can’t get done during the busy season. We are looking forward to introducing some new staff members coming in this year and adding some new activities and facilities that we can’t wait to share with you.

There are always plenty of recreational or entertaining events happening in Sisters Country so we hope to see you here at LHR sometime, or even several times, in 2014! Happy New Year!
