My Wife and I recently visited Wild Horses and had a wonderful time. The food was absolutely delicious (a definite highlight!) and the service was exceptional. Our room was clean, spacious and exactly like the pictures on the website. We were made to feel very special while still enjoying our privacy. A perfect romantic getaway!

Our host Jennifer and the staff made our week-end stay at Wild Horses last week-end an absolute dream come true!!! It is a beautiful place and nothing was too much of an effort for the staff and Jennifer. We felt at home and could relax completely. Chris and I would certainly visit again - it was the perfect place for some serenity in the lap of luxury!!!! Thank-you guys - you made a special week-end just perfect. And loved the koi!

Most unpleasant experience of my life. The manager Janine is extremely rude and treated us like children. The food also was not great. We wanted to go on a boat ride (which is one of their big advertising points and also the only thing to do there) and we were told the owner is the only one who can take people on the boat and he was not there so that didn't happen. The pictures look good and the rooms look very nice at first glance but if you move anything you find dirt. The place is in serious need of maintenance. We were expecting a lovely romantic getaway which turned into a horrible weekend. Extremely overpriced for what you get as well. Stay away!
