Amazing ranch, definitely visit if you're in Croatia!” Josh T

To start, the staff were all amazingly helpful and made our stay fantastic. There's a 2 hour hike from the ranch that I highly recommend. You will go through the woods to a cave that has incredible views along the way. We only stayed one night at the ranch but wish we booked a few more to experience more of the amenities and activities... read more...

“Perfect stay!” Mloescie, Paris, France

Warm welcome, Very kind people and excellent food! It was the best time for me in Croatia, too short unfortunately because the place is so relaxing and comfy! Great activities to do all through the year, I will come back for sure... read more...

We had a great and unforgettable time at Linden Tree. Linden Tree is an oasis of peace located in the beautiful countryside in the middle of nature. The people working there are all extremly friendly and welcoming - we immediately felt at home. The food was absolutly delicious - always prepared freshly with products from the region... read more...

“Marvellous food, quirky place and peaceful setting” DevonGardenLady

We stayed here for two days on a small group holiday. A lovely, restful setting that feels miles away from anywhere. The living room area where we ate had a log burner and was decorated with fairy lights in the evening and artefacts originating from America... read more...

“2 hour trail ride” captayadav, Gurgaon, India

Went for the two hour trail ride at linden ranch. It was a once in a lifetime experience, crossing creeks and climbing through the thick of the forest. The guide Daniella was great! And Tina was extremely helpful via email... read more...

“Peacefull moment, pure experience with kindly people” Amandine N

Me and my boyfriend Aurelien had a very good experience at the Ranch. We arrived late and we camped with our own tent outside. They give us some blanket and hot boiled water to be sure taht we will be confortable. The day after, the weither was rainy but it was a pleasure to stay inside, close to the fire... read more...

“Lovely, restful, great food” Heidi H, London, United Kingdom

We chose this from the Lonely Planet book. The website is good and informative. There is one poor review on TripAdvisor - which we disagree with. The food was really really good. The horse rides were fun - we had a 2hour and whole day horse ride. The staff were friendly... read more...

“A place to find yourself” Simon P

As we drove the 25 km from Gospic to Velika Plana we were increasingly enchanted by the delighful coutryside, a valley (Polje) full of small farmsteads and villages surrounded by the beautiful tree-covered Velibit Mountains with pure white limestone rocks showing through. By the time we reached the ranch, we were starting to climb out of the Polje and inhabitation was becoming more sparse... read more...

“Very restful and welcoming” Ann W

My brother and I spent two nights here. We did a half day's horse riding and a half day's canoeing. Both were very well organised. The horse riding was well managed given I'm an experienced rider and my brother a non rider - we both had a lovely afternoon on horses suitable to our experience... read more...

“One of those experiences you” majamiocic, Sweden

Many times have I been to Croatia, but this experience was something totally different. Linden is located in a breathtakingly beautiful valley and the staff made us feel at home as soon as we parked the car. We did a 8 hour long horse ride, I had practically never seen a horse in real life before my visit to Linden... read more...

“A place where magic dances, visibly and freely” Lena P, Zagreb

Without understanding how or why, Linden swallowed me in its magic, instantly. Be it the wilderness that suddenly becomes so vivid and alive, the horseback riding that has nothing to do with just "horseback riding", the accommodation that is prepared for the guest with so much care and attention, food which speaks 1000 love languages, yet very simple and delicious.... read more...

“Where all your wishes come true!” zsupica, Zagreb

Behind your wildest dreams, there is a place where magic is something you can touch, where your dreams become reality, where you are your own best friend, where you are coming back for more of whatever you found there. That is what this place is! Few of my friends and I spent a weekend at Linden and it was so... read more...

“Very private experience” supicicivana, Zagreb

I can only say that inspiration I got just by visiting Linden Ranch remains within in silence, although few words could come close to description of experience that crossed my path. At your beautiful Ranch, dear Megi & Bruce, I saw my dreams alive .. for me it felt almost unreal - all beauty that comes from this planet which... read more...

“Great place to stay” Ben M, London

Amazing location with beautiful views of Vesebit National Park but mostly amazing for the owners. They're incredibly knowledgable of the surrounding area, the nature around them and so much more. And to top it all Megi's cooking is incredible! read more...

“Perfect Retreat in a Stunning Location!” Ben S, London

Our peloton of six arrived late at night after cycling over the Velebit Mountains have started the day on Krk Island. We were treated to incredible hospitality by Maggie and Bruce, delicious locally sourced food including wild boar and venison stew, Maggie's homemade bread and teas, honey, lots of wine, horse riding through the river and mountains, a walk into... read more...

“A breath of fresh air!” Jacqueline S, London

I would recommend this place to anyone who appreciates nature and peace. Early in the morning you could lie in bed and hear eagles calling, the meadows were full of wild flowers and our youngest son loved playing with the kittens living on the ranch! At night the skies are clear and full of stars and it was great to sit around the campfire drinking mountain tea and meeting new people. A special place, run by special people, we definitely hope to return... read more...

“Amazing in all it's glory!” David C, Grabill

The Linden Tree Retreat & Ranch is nothing shy of amazing! Tucked away in the Velebit mountains of Croatia, Linden Tree gives you the perfect opportunity to throw your stress away for a while and just enjoy quiet and peaceful surroundings. Linden Tree is so beautiful! The rooms/accommodations were pleasantly decorated with utmost talent. We had everything we needed and then some... read more...

“Life Changing Experience!” RemelLondon

I absolutely fell in love with the Linden Tree Retreat & Ranch. Sleeping under the stars in a Tipi was absolutely amazing. And I met the wonderful horse Donna who I absolutely Adore! I would 100% return to the ranch and thank you to Bruce and Megan and all of the team for an incredible experience... read more...

“very relaxing, great food” Klara V, Amsterdam

We had a wonderfull day with our kids, the kids did some horse back riding and we took a walk through the surrounding wood. Afterwards we had a great lunch. The hosts were very friendly, it was a relaxing day... read more...

“The Trip of a Lifetime!” LondonBBgirl

My friends and I from Girls Talk London stayed here at the end of August with the owner of travel agency Cro-Exclusive. When we arrived we were greeted by our wonderful hosts for the night Bruce and Megan who own the ranch. They had cooked an amazing welcome dinner for us and we got to try some ‘snake brandy’ shots! it seemed like a tradition here and we couldn’t say no... read more...

“Perfect Ranch Experience!” Sabina McKEnzie Brown

I stayed a night at the Ranch with a group of colleagues. We had gone to the Ranch to film our experience and the place. I and had the first time experience of sleeping in one of their luxury Tipi's. I wish I could have stayed longer! It felt incredible to spend a night out in the open... read more...

“Great relaxing retreat in a beautiful setting” Adam R.

Me and my girlfriend stayed here for two nights and had an amazing experience. The atmosphere was very welcoming, the food was great, horse riding was amazing. We went on a 2 hour trek right into the heart of the Croatian countryside. Couldn't have asked for a better stay... read more...

“Nice scenery, back to the roots, great hospitality” annablume, Wiena

Also, the cooking was exceptional, we did not expect that it would be possible to live our eclectic vegetarian low carb diet in the croatian countryside. This can be a challenge anywhere, but they outdid themselves in creating the most wonderful dishes... read more...

“Amazing experience” Peter V.

We made a great roadtrip in our convertible in Croatia with as end destination Hvar. Croatia appeared to be a beautiful country. We loved the coast, cities, nature and people. But one of the highlights was definitely our stay at the Linden Tree Ranch... read more...

“Wonderful experience” Liesbet Mignolet, Belgium

We went to the ranch for a few days in May and it was a wonderful experience. Bruce and his team manage to create a very cosy and magical atmosphere. I particularly enjoyed the very positive energy of Karla who took us on a hike through the woods to the Secret Cave... read more...

“Writer's Winter Escape” Teresa F

We are weary; all of humankind is such but many aren't even aware that they are, I knew I was. In the space of 88 days I was determined to experience as much as Croatia had to offer - and while admittedly I wasn't planning on venturing into the hinterlands of central Croatia when I left the United States when the opportunity came up to do so I went. You don't expect to find much 'comfort' let alone luxury at a mountain property, let alone on a horse ranch in the protected UNESCO wilderness of the Velebit mountains - yet my previous Dalmatian hosts could learn a great deal from the Yerkovich's at Linden Tree Retreat and Ranch in Velika Plana (about 20 minutes outside of Gospic)... read more...

“Amazing” Sandra C

Reading other people's reviews, I can only agree with them. I went there with my seven year old daughter and everything was just amazing. The place we stayed at was magical, the beauty of the surroundings just breathtaking and waking up to see the horses riding freely from the window was fabulous. My daughter loved the kittens and the horses... read more...

“An Amazing Experience” Gayle and Garry, London, United Kingdom

My husband & I spent an amazing week at the ranch in August this year. Bruce & Maggie are both wonderful people, who made our stay very special. Bruce is great with the horses, helped us chose horses to suit our ability perfectly & always made sure that we were happy whilst out riding, going at the pace of the least experienced person. Maggie's attention to detail is second to none, with gorgeously tasting & presented food & I think that she's probably also responsible for the finishing touches in the rooms - chocolates on pillows, bathrobes & slippers, toiletries provided... read more...

“Beautiful wilderness with a dash of magic...” Romana S, Zagreb, Croatia

Every now and then we experience a sensation that makes us feel at home, a feeling of belonging, and that is just the feeling you get upon arriving to Linden. The combination of pristine wilderness, combined with the beauty of horses, topped with a magnificant staff that heralds hospitaity and experience is all thats awaits you. WHEN YOU FEEL AS IF A LITTLE MAGIC IS NEEDED IN YOUR LIFE TO RECHARGE AND FILL YOUR INNER BATTERIES, THINK LINDEN RETREAT. A place where finding yourself means connecting with the source of your being, nature... read more...

“Special place” ILoveWeekend, Zagreb, Croatia

I saw this amazing place on the internet and since I love mountains, especially Velebit, and horses I decided to come for a visit. What I found there was out of my every expectations! This was a Velebit in some totally new story for me. This place is like cut out from some tale... read more...

“A peaceful and wonderful home away from home” Hermajesty_Keltia, Liege, Belgium

We stayed 3 nights at Linden Tree Retreat & Ranch while exploring Croatia during a 3 week road trip. This has been by far one of the best time of our trip and we already miss that place.

Linden has everything travelers like us might dream for: the place is amazingly beautiful (you're in the heart of the Velebit mountain, you can't find a quieter place) ; the accommodation are top quality ; the food is out of this world (Maggy is the best cook ever!) and you can book some activities like horse riding in the mountain (unforgettable experience). Last but not least, you feel very welcome and if you need anything, you just need to ask... read more...

“Croatian precious gem” Angelica H.

Beautiful, charming and SUPER UNIQUE place in the heart of Velebit mountain in Croatia - if you love nature and need to escape from a busy city life or commercial tourism, this is the place to totally re-charge your batteries...!

Whether you need an active break or you just want to unwind and take a breath of the fresh air, Linden Tree Retreat and Ranch is a perfect choice.

I have stayed at Linden Tree for 5 nights at the beginning of August and enjoyed it all - trail running, hiking, mountain biking, horse riding over the most scenic routes, as well as drumming session, yoga, meditation and just BEING - feeling part of that glorious nature there.. Even if you haven't rode or never been near horses in your life, Linden's owner, cowboy Bruce, will get you comfortable with it all in no time. Before visiting Linden Tree, I have sat on horse once before, years ago. Thanks to Bruce's wisdom and amazing intuition, his passion and knowledge about horses, his great teaching skills and no-nonsense attitude - not just that I had a great time, I also felt super connected with my ponny Mache, managed to ride him even without the saddle and learned how to fall, in just two days, which I find incredible... read more...

“A great place to unwind, meet great people and great horses” SimoneMariaW

My family and I stayed for a week and it didn't feel long enough. We did not have the best weather all the time but that didn't matter as the rides were breathtaking, the food delicious (thank you Meji, ably assisted by Liga & Ivanka) and the company welcoming and amiable. Bruce is patient, very knowledgable and a great person to learn new things from. Our horses, Stormcloud, Riverdance and Mamma had big personalities but we soon bonded with them on our excursions and miss seeing them every day, although not as much as my son misses the local beer! Nothing was too much trouble for our hosts and we also went on a day trip to the plitvic lakes where we were the envy of all clad in our yellow raincoats and wellies, courtesy of Bruce. Highly recommend this fantastic place, you will feel so much closer to what really matters... read more...

“Peaceful family adventure” Marie E.

We enjoyed four wonderful days at Linden Tree Ranch & Retreat; the ideal place for a busy city family to slow down together. Our girls played with the kittens for hours while we sat in the shade, listening to the the quiet noise of nature and taking in the fantastic views. We went on short rides and hiked along the stream to explore the fascinating caves. We also went on a daytrip to Plitvice National Park. Megi and Bruce are excellent hosts and served us delicious local food & wine in various settings: Restaurant style in the "boma" or cowboy style around the bonfire... It was a total experience of relaxation and adventure at the same time. We can only recommend it... read more...

“Ride, and then some” Dixie Vert, Chester, United Kingdom

A delightful location. My horse was great with a personality, forward going and coped with varied terrain that made the riding so good - forest tracks, open meadows with opportunities to canter, lots to see with different routes each day. Interesting local food, wonderful ambiance at meal times, everyone is included. Recommend the walnut liqueur as a night-cap. Spacious, well-equipped room. I didn't stay long enough... read more...

“Magnificant” Ulrika Nilsson, Stockholm, Sweden

The owners do everything to get you feel well. This is a perfect place to reset your mind och find inner peace. If you love horses and riding this will be the place. Bruce is amazing with the horses, the horses are well trained and the nature is wonderful to ride in. Linden Retreat & Ranch is just a magnificent place.... read more...

“Amazing place and people” Chriss F, Vashon, Washington, USA

You will not regret the long journey to this retreat. The host, Bozidar and Mejida are wonderful, considerate and fabulous hosts. The expectations are amazing and you will find yourself reflecting for years what you experience at the retreat. I intending to return many times in the future.... read more...

“Wow, best yet” trevors s, York, United Kingdom

having travelled extensively through out the world, our experience at Linden tree was that of a fantastic holiday we will probably struggle to beat, the horse riding and the natural horsemanship lessons where fun, informative, professionally delivered, tailored to our personal requirements and indeed my wife classed one of the rides "as the best ride ever" . The above words... read more...

"Sleeping in the tipi, riding a horses, living like Indians" tturk2013, Koprivnica, Croatia

The idea was to get away from modern life and to relax in mountain environment. Expectations were fulfilled completely. Horses and the tipi were two main attractions that led us to Linden Tree Ranch. When contacting them speak about food you prefer to eat, they prefer vegetarian but you can be sure that they will serve any other food...

“Peacefulness” Sabina B, Malinska, Croatia

Dear all, the time spent on your ranch was absolutely marvellous! We are altogether delighted with the whole concept of it! The ranch and its surroundings, influenced by the presence of the animals, radiate spirituality and calmness. We congratulate you for it! We can't wait to come back, this time for a longer period. Sincerely, Sabina and Mario, Studio8585... read more...

“Earthy Heaven in Croatia” KontessaT, Dallas, USA

On the edge of the enchanted forest, Bozidar read a poem by David Wagoner. The last verse echoed in my mind: “Stand still. The forest knows where you are. You must let it find you.” We walked slowly, in single file. Nobody spoke. Shapes began to appear. Nature had created beautiful, moss-covered sculptures of wood. Some had protruding arms, outstretched as if in despair. Others looked like dark faces staring at us from the woods. Figures stood all around, unmoving, as we walked. A cuckoo sang a carefully timed welcome, nature’s metronome... read more...

“warmly recommended” Alix W. Basel, Switzerland

OThose holidays had surpassed all my expectations! Beautiful landscapes, amazing horses, sincere company, close touch with nature, lovely campfires, delicious meals and so forth :) Thanks to Bozidar, Medzida, Brooke and John for all the good talks and abiding memories... read more...

“Great experiance” Ivan D, Zadar, Croatia

Great place to free yourself from everyday urban life and feel one different way of life...completely in touch of nature with lot of spirit and positive energy. It makes you to think about your own way of life... read more...

“Relaxation in the Valley” Kim F, Maryland, United States

Linden Tree Retreat is everything it claims to be. My friend and I spent 4 days and would gladly have stayed longer. From the food, prepared lovingly by the gifted cook, to the peaceful hikes through gorgeous woods, to the freshest air and best-tasting spring water imaginable, Linden Tree has it all. By the second day I could feel the relaxation taking hold amidst the natural beauty and authentic hospitality of this place. I recommend Linden Tree to everyone as the perfect place to escape while also discovering and nurturing inner joy... read more...

“Just amazing!” Anastasia Bobrova, Moscow, Russia

Living in a big city you forget,how it's important to appriciate rather simple things like trees, green grass,birds, nature in general. Here you notice everything, you gain the 6th sense. Then you try to look closer to your innerself, to understand yourself better and reach a perfect harmony... read more...

“Portal to what matters” Danka Derifaj, Zagreb, Croatia

Have you ever listened to the sound of falling snow? Can you remember it? I loved that sound, long time ago, before I became occupied with daily routine. When I had time to listen. I didn't even realize how much I missed it until I came to Linden Retreat. I heard it again and wished never to leave... read more...

“Magical Linden” anamarijariki, Zagreb, Croatia

Amazing nature and silence, Bozidar-the owner of magical Linden is openhearted and clear, standing still on the ground with lyrical whisper in his eyes together with his soft and friendly stuff, creates unforgatable moments and warm welcome atmosphere on the ranch... read more...

“Drie dagen in Linden Tree Retreat met vrienden - heerlijk” jasminka f, Ridderkerk, The Netherlands

Onze dank voor jullie gastvrijheid. We voelden ons thuis, eigenlijk nog beter. Als ik mijn ogen sluit zie ik weer die groene omgeving, paarden die vrij ronddraven en hondjes die vrolijk met elkaar en met ons spelen, ik hoor de stilte en ruik de geur van het gras, wilde kruiden en Kata's brood. We prijzen ons gelukkig dat we dit hebben mogen ervaren voor de tweede keer, dat we nog een keer hebben kunnen genieten van het eten uit onze kindertijd... read more...

“Cowboyleben mitten in Europa” Nenad P, Neukirchen-Vluyn, Germany

Es fällt mir nicht leicht dieses besondere Erlebnis in einen kurzen Bericht zusammenzufassen, im Grunde ist es überhaupt nicht möglich. Das was ich hier erlebt haben, hat alle meine Vorstellungen und Erwartungen übertroffen. Ich hätte nie gedacht das soviel Abenteuer und richtiges Cowboyleben direkt in unserer unmittelbarer Nähe ist. Ein Muss für jeden der den Alltag zur Seite legen, und die Verbindung zur Natur spüren möchte. Für mich steht fest, das wird nicht das letzte Mal gewesen sein. Bozidar, wir sehen uns bald wieder...
