Attention, horse people: this family-owned mountaintop ranch just 10 minutes south of Zarcero is your dream. On offer are four charming and well-constructed cabins with fireplaces, TVs and full kitchens, a dining hall and elegant stables. The property's horses carry guests across the hillside, through forests and over scenic pastureland surrounded by wildflowers and views of the Central Valley.
Riding tours cost from US$15 per person. Watch out for the barking guard dogs on the way into the property.
