This was our first time to Pinegrove and we loved it! We were a a group of 12 people who went away for my daughters 9th birthday. The ages varied and there was something for everyone to do. I believe the staff is a huge part of your vacation and at Pinegrove they make you feel like family. The word "no" is not in their vocabulary. The staff does everything to make you happy and goes above and beyond. The kids loved the horseback riding and now my children want to go for lessons. My 9 year old daughter was on a trail for the first time and Jessica was so helpful, kind, and patient. She rode right behind my daughter guiding her every step of the way and my daughter did awesome with her guidance. In one weekend we covered ice skating, snow tubing, petting zoo, horseback riding, swimming, archery, hoedown, country line dancing, and a fabulous show , Gemini. What a wonderful nonstop weekend at Pinegrove. Can't wait to return....possibly this spring.
Family first, all the way. We spent New Year's with another family - 11 of us in all - at Pinegrove. Everything comes down to the staff who clearly work as a family and love what they do. Several times, we had a member of the staff go out of his or her way to make sure our kids were happy, from the horseback rides to the games. The staff was having fun and that set the tone for our 3-day trip.
It was great to have plenty of space to crash in the room, though we spent almost no time there because we were always busy. Will say that the beds and pillows made for great sleeping. As far as activities go, there's something for everyone. The pool was big enough to never feel crowded during a very busy weekend. The kids all took a shot at the rock wall and wore themselves out on the huge bouncer. They ate their fill at the snack bar and I held my own with the free ice cream. Didn't get a chance to try ice skating, but loved that it was on a pond - very cool. Lots of other things we didn't try, so we'll be back!
We returned for a family vacation for the first time in 11 years! We drove from Orlando with 11 family members. We had an absolute BLAST! Our days overflowed with fun activities like snow tubing, horseback riding, paintball, swimming, laser tag and so much more! The food is top notch and we were really treated as though we were family. The staff is friendly, warm and ready to serve. The owner David greeted us at dinner and remembering us called us by name. That was really telling of the love and care that goes into every person that vacations there. The shows at night kept us laughing for days and the New Years Eve party was amazing!! After posting dozens of pictures on Facebook I have many families that want to return with us in December of 2014. We cannot wait! Thank you David and the staff from Pinegrove! You are the BEST!
This was our first time visiting Pine Grove. I was looking for something fun to do with my family online and came across the ranch. They were offering amazing deals that we just couldn't pass it up. We went in November and were very lucky that the weather was mild. When we first came into the main building we were welcomed with smiles and very pleasant employees. Check in was easy and we were upgraded to a larger room. The room was very clean and the beds were comfortable. My son was very excited to see that they had an extensive list of activities. Your child not be bored. This was the first vacation that my husband and I took that we did not have to entertain our son. He had sooooo many children to play with. He made friends that minute he walked in. They have a neat pool with slides and many outdoor activities. They offer plenty to eat. You will not go hungry. It is not 5 star meals, but they are very good (beats cooking everyday). The horse barn staff are very friendly and helpful. We enjoyed the tractor hay ride and walking the grounds. Each night they had a cocktail hour and snacks before dinner ( the first night was a chocolate fountain! ) and nightly entertainment. We made friends with a group from the Island and had a great time singing and hanging out in the Saloon. My son had a great time playing all the games and winning Ranch Rewards that he was able to use in the gift shop. I gave it five starts because it is a great value for what you get! We had such a great time that we took advantage of the great summer deal that they are offering! Can't wait to return.
I love coming here, the staff is one big family. The rooms are always clean and the showers have such great water pressure! I liked the bounce thing and the snow tubing was lots of fun! I met aot of cool people and the staff was so attentive. New years party was put together so nicely and the dj was awesome! definitely going to try to come back for all the seasons! Also my bed was super comfy. Lots of activities to do too.
Husband wanted to take a trip to a dude ranch for a while so we finally went for his birthday weekend. It was just the two of us and we had a great time. I'd read poor reviews after I'd booked the trip so I was wary but immediately upon arrival we wondered aloud what people were talking about. The main lobby/reception area has really fun decor. When booking the room I mentioned my husband's birthday. We had an upgraded room with a fireplace and a banner, balloons & gift waiting for him. The food was good. I don't know why others complained. The meat was tender and not at all tough as others have said. We enjoyed our horse ride and the wranglers were attentive to my fear of not having been on a horse in 25yrs. The magician was a cute show but when he was done and the families retired for the night, the nightclub was dead. We made friends with a large group and listened to music with them in the main lounge area. There are many activities scheduled to round out the day. We will definitely be back with family & friends. A nice touch was the thank you note we received about a week after our trip.
We went to Pinegrove for Veteran's Day Weekend. And, as always, had a wonderful time. The riding was perfect, the rooms are nice and clean and the service is always A #1. The entire staff is so pleasant and helpful. We always feel welcomed when we go. We had a great long weekend. Got to enjoy riding every day, the specially planned activities and the shows at night. It is a great way to relax and "kick back" and just have fun. We are planning our next long weekend for the Spring. Enjoy!
I used to go to Pinegrove with Eddie Colon. It's was a great family place. I met my husband there sorry to say I never took my children there. Would love to go back. I'm still married to the man I fell in love with at Pinegrove. Pine grove was always family oriented. I loved going there.
I can't say enough about how fun our weekend was. All of the employees were happy, eager to please and truly care about our stay! Can not wait to go back!!!! The meals were all delicious, the activities were fun, there were many to choose from. The kids loved the Coke-tail party! Halloween weekend was lots of fun! Kids really enjoyed the horse back ride too! Next time they want to try paint ball!
We went to Pinegrove for the first time this year based on friend's recommendation.
My wife, 17month old daughter, myself, and another couple with similar age child.
It was a lot of fun as long as your expectations are properly set.
This is not a luxury resort and you wont get 5 star accommodations. Rooms and many facilities are old and in need to proper repair. Proper because in many places it looks like things were patched up with whatever was lying around rather then professionally fixed. But we did not care all that much. Grounds are beautiful and surrounding area is stunning. I am sure it is amazing in the summer. We took our daughter horseback riding and she loved it. Had a blast snow tubing and playing with the animals at the petting zoo. Staff were all very friendly and helpful. Love the fact that you get a table assigned for the stay and it was all set with high chairs for kids for breakfast and dinner. Had a good time at the pool as well. We were a little underwhelmed with the food at first, but it worked out great with delicious breakfast and good dinners. One thing that really needs to improve is lunch. It's hard with little kids to try and find a seat at the little area and it takes forever to get food and food itself is far from great. But with a little coordination and patience its not a deal breaker.
We wanted to do ice skating and we told at the front desk that they have small skates, but when we got there guys at the skating are said they have nothing under 6 year-old skates. But it was not a big deal because there are other things to do so we went back to snow tubing.
Save your money and don't buy the bottomless soda cups. Soda they have is nasty.
But over all, it's a fun place and we would go back again in the summer. Outdoor pool and play areas look like they would be a lot of fun.
