The Double R Guest Ranch is located in the heart of the Sandhills of Nebraska and is home to some of the darkest skies in the United States!

Our ranch is 30 minutes from Merritt Reservoir, which is the location of the annual Nebraska Star Party. Dark skies and wide open spaces make the Double R the perfect place for stargazing!
