  • The Natural Gaot

    By on Nov 14, 2012

    Every time I go to The Natural Gait I start to relax almost at once. It is beautiful, the cabins are awesome. They are rustic however they have all the amenities of a 5 star hotel and then some.
    If you are looking to unwind and get perspective you have to come to The Natural Gait.

  • Great Family Vacation Spot

    By on Oct 28, 2012

    We vacationed here with a large group of family and friends. There was something for everybody to enjoy. The guys fished the banks of the Yellow River. We kayaked down the river. (It's really a float and a lot of fun!) The kids had a blast on the little sand beaches. The hiking trails were fantastic, walking through the wildflower fields. The cabin was large enough to accomodate us all, and included the amenities. Late night campfires, playground, volleyball, horseshoes and shuffleboard really made this a fun time. Some of the group brought horses. Trails were fantastic; indoor and outdoor arena worked out well. The covered stalls were close to the cabin too! I would definitely recommend to anyone with any size group to stay here. Truly a beautiful getaway spot!
