In 2006 Dan and Sandy Everett first discovered The Alisal. At the time both were golfers looking to test out The Alisal’s two scenic courses (The Ranch and River Course). Time and life detoured them from a return visit to the Ranch until last year when they decided The Alisal was just the place to give their grandchildren an authentic western adventure.
With young Luke (age 10) and Ashley (age 8) in tow, they hit the trail from northern California to share some quality family time. According to Dan, “We had done Disneyland and Legoland with the grandchildren and we thought The Alisal would be a different kind of experience we could share with them. The kids did it all. Ashley couldn’t get enough of the horses and both children loved archery, the air rifles, biking and crafts”. Dan and Sandy and the youngin’s all enjoyed the breakfast at the adobe, quiet times by the pool and the relaxed meals. “It’s nice to see the kids dress up a bit for meals and no TVs in the rooms means more bonding time”, Dan added.
The group had so much fun they came back again this year. Dan and Sandy happily explain to their friends that a trip to The Alisal with the grandkids is more than just a vacation, it’s a chance to create memories for a lifetime. “It’s a safe place where kids can enjoy life the way it used to be”, says Dan.
We tip our hats to the Everetts and say, “We’re mighty proud to consider you part of The Alisal family”.
