Not only was the RV park a visible mess, the management was terrible. I met the owner, Dan Thiel, he was such a rude person. He was extremely rude to the nice ladies that checked the RVers in and sold merchandise. (I forget their names, but the girls were nice!) Apparently, throughout the ranch, their means of communication is by radio (like walkie talkies!). Well, on more than one circumstance, I overheard the conversations. There were attitudes and screaming, then the girls in the store were really upset. Apparently the owners and/or staff needs to know appropriate communication etiquette. While I enjoyed the cabin we stayed in, I disliked the location - especially the fact that I could practically reach my arm out the door and touch an RV.
Overall, the only good thing about this stay was the hospitality of the few girls working behind the counter. Oh, and the food, that was exceptional.
They double the price for CFD, and refuse refunds. (We left one night early due to the poor conditions; we should have saved our $$ stayed in a tent....)
We experienced a major fly problem inside our rental cabin, which could have been avoided with a little TLC and maintenance. The window screens did not fit properly, allowing flies inside the cabin faster than we could kill them. Couldn't eat or sleep here comfortably after a long day at the Rodeo. (I grew up on a farm, with animals, and we never had flies in the house like we experienced here....)
Might have been a nice place in its day, but now its run-down, dirty, and outdated. And did I mention: an over-priced tourist trap?!
Staff was unfriendly and not helpful; after-hours phone went unanswered; management conveniently 'unavailable.'
A black-eye for the City of Cheyenne. (However our visit to the Rodeo was great!)
Would not stay here again; would not recommend to friends and family.
I think the other reviewer should have gotten out of their car and checked it out! We had a BLAST! The train ride was amazing and informative and the rest of the ranch was so much fun. All the babies we got to see and the space for my kids to run was great!! Their cats had just had kittens and if you want you can try and find them hiding around the ranch and if you feel inclined can take some home with you :) This ranch also gave me thedirection I am wanting to take with my life in becomeing a vet tech :) I will be applying to work here this coming winter/summer! I loved it that much!! If you can make it here GO...Oh and I should also mention the restaurant has some mighty good food too!!
Drove by and it was definatly not what we thought. Maybe missed something but I didn't like the place at all. I didn't find the atmosphere something I wanted to stay in and compared to other ranches I've been to, not that great.
I found the ranch in January and stayed until March. The staff and management were top notch, extremely helpful and nicer than nice. I have stayed in many RV parks and have never met better operators than at Terry's. This place is awesome!! Dave H.
Terry's was a very nice place to stay. We stayed in a cabin and the view was great. The food was excellent. A cowboy named Nick was very friendly and knew everything about the operation of the ranch. Only 10 minutes from Cheyenne. I will go back in 2008. mike b
I have been here a number of times, and stayed in the cabins which face out to the where the horses and bison roam, and along the top of the ridge, are the windmills that generate the electricity for all of the area.
The food at the restaurant is made so well, that you just don't want to leave! And, they pour a generous beer. This is a little way out from actual the actual Cheyenne city, but it is so worth the stay because it is so quiet, and the beauty of the sunrise, and the sky is so blue you can reach up and touch the clouds. It is only about an hour to reach Ft. Collins, and head up into the Rocky Mountains, you just cannot beat the stay and the value of these cabins which are not unkempt, but very well stocked, and have all the amenities you need. Next time you are thinking of Wyoming, stop by the Ranch, you will be glad you did.
The west is not what it use to be and the Terry Bison Ranch isn't either. From it's un-professional sales department and catering manager to the over abundant fly infestation in both the salad bar and in the soup. Locals and tourist both could not eat their meals in peace due to constant swatting of the pest.
The train rides lack the true intent of showing the west and how things were back in the old west. There was also a female trail boss of sorts that was a very disgruntled person that was neither personable or engaging. Prices both with lodging and meal wise were outrageous especially for what one would think you would get in return.
