"Rip Off Extraordinaire" A review of Rancho de la Osa Guest Ranch
This "Dude Ranch" charged us $512.35 for a one night stay. The room was unventilated, no windows in the bedroom area, the sitting room was so musty smelling it was unuseable. One very sleepless night on an uncomfortable small bed.The "gourmet" food looked and tasted very similiar to Costco type box store food. A chicken cutlet for dinner and a breakfast crepe which was tough and not edible.The wine we purchased from them was grossly overpriced and to add insult to injury--they also charged a serving fee.Rancho de la Osa is historical, as in museum of the past but restored to qualify as $500.00 per night lodging----absolutely not.If you are looking for an adventure - as in experiencing what Father Junipero Serra or Bishop Lamy experienced sleeping in the small windowless rooms on a hard bed - this is for you.We were extremely disappointed and truly felt the place did not live up to any of the glossy brochure pictures or the descriptions you will find on their website. I would absolutely not recommend this place.
