Check-out Time:

Kingfisher Bend Ranch was established in 2001 by Ted and Charlotte Jacobsen and their family. Brian Robinson manages Kingfisher Bend Ranch with the help of his wife Teresa and their daughters.

Kingfisher Bend Ranch has three guest units - the main lodge and two pond cabins. The main lodge has beds for 12 and each pond cabin has beds for four. Each unit is well equipped and tastefully decorated, so you can enjoy nature in a rustic setting without sacrificing comfort.

Kingfisher Bend Ranch is a working cattle ranch as well as a guest ranch. Livestock at the ranch includes a small herd of photogenic, long-haired, long-horned Scottish Highland cattle, saddle horses, and black Angus beef cattle.

Enjoy your stay, but as you do, please take good care of the property. It is part of a dream. It is not a budget motel owned by some far away, faceless corporation. After your stay, Kingfisher Bend Ranch welcomes your comments and suggestions for improvement.
