Westgate is well known for all its incredible Orlando hotels, But did you know that just an hour away you can experience Luxury style camping, outdoor activities, amazing experience with all the animals at the farm, waterpark resorts, and so much more.
My family and I just got back from an amazing trip to the Westgate River Ranch Resort & Rodeo and we had so much fun! This blog post is a review of the resort and the dos and dont’s. I hope you enjoy reading along and please let me know if you have any questions 🙂
I live in Parkland. FL and it took us about 2 hours and 30 minutes to drive there. We were so excited to get there and to enjoy all the amenities this resort has to offer. Let’s start with the accommodations. We stayed at the luxe Teepee, which was the ultimate outdoor adventure with all the comforts of a spacious and luxurious villa full of upscale amenities.
The Teepee has 651 square feet of space, sleeps up to four guests, and it has a variety of unique amenities such as a double-sided stone rock hearth fireplace, two leather chairs with authentic cowhide ottoman, luxury linens, plush towels and toiletries, bathtub, and shower, two rocking chairs, a private patio deck, and a grill. With the addition of a private bathroom with vanity and storage, air conditioning and heating, microwave, mini-refrigerator, dining table and chairs, solid wood dresser, pullout couch, and electrical outlets.
I love the space of our Teepee. Abbie slept comfortably on the sofa bed in the living room; the living room has a separate ac unit, which was a plus!
Our King bed size was very comfortable and it felt very luxurious. The linens, mattress, and pillows felt like a 5-star hotel!
We enjoy our private balcony a lot! It was so peaceful to sit outside and enjoy the fresh weather. The basket you see in this picture is where they place the breakfast every morning. I highly recommend bringing some fresh fruits to place in the fridge. The breakfast was great, but there were no fresh berries included. The breakfast had a selection of pastries, apple danishes, cinnamon rolls, orange and apple juice options, and some apples and bananas. So if you are more into healthy eating is better to bring some fruits with you 🙂

The coolest thing about staying on the Teepee is that includes a private golf cart! This was so much fun! We were able to drive about everywhere in the resort. This was one of my favorite things to do! Explore the resort with my family on the golf cart. The parking space for the golf cart is right behind our teepee.
One of my favorite animals is a horse! I was so happy to have direct contact with them there! Westgate River Ranch Resort & Rodeo offers horseback riding and also several locations where you can pet the horses. We were so happy to see that one of the horses had a baby, and it was one of the cutest moments. Abbie was so happy to pet the baby horse.
Westgate River Ranch Resort & Rodeo has so many activities; it’s amazing!!! You’re sure to find something to excite everyone with over a dozen activities, including a rodeo, petting farm, bungee jumping, golf, trap and skeet shooting, fishing, swamp buggy rides, and more! The coolest part was that when I wanted to have some peace and quiet, my husband would take Abbie to do some activities, while was resting on the hammock or inside my teepee! Everyone was so happy!!
Nashville Singer-Songwriter Series
River Ranch is offering an intimate concert series featuring top musical talent from Nashville. We loved watching a live show with the songwriter: Jacob Ryant. It was an intimate experience and a very pleasant and fun night! We had a couple of drinks, enjoyed some great music and Abbie was so impressed with Jacob playing the guitar! We can not wait to go back!
We were very happy with our stay and can not wait to go back again!
