“Beautiful, Relaxing and Fun”
Reviewed 17 July 2012

Why do we go back every year? Because this is a beautiful place with friendly people who work very hard to make sure our group (aged 2 to 72) all have excellent horses, great food and fun activities at an affordable price.
Whether you enjoy a comfortable trail ride with stunning scenery or more challenging ring work with western arena ‘games’ or advanced horsemanship training, their programs and expertise can’t be beat. If sitting on the veranda is more your speed, you have a lot of excellent choices and, usually, a friendly dog or two to keep you company.
Guests who stay in the rooms in the lodge proper get their own sitting area with high ceilings, games and lots of comfy seating. Those who stay in the beautiful log cabins have their own porch in the woods.
The grown-ups look forward all year to riding and shooting skeet while the kids all remember the cast Iron cook-outs with fiddle and guitar sing-along, horse shoes, play structure and more…. Horseback scavenger hunt anyone?

Room Tip: The lodge is great, but if you're staying for a while, the cabins are really special.

Our family has stayed at the Western Pleasure guest ranch in the past and this year we sent the kids for the horsemanship camp while Mom and Dad took off for some alone time.

They had a great time. They had SO many experiences that they would never have the opportunity for where we live.

We felt so comfortable and safe leaving our kids in the care of Janice, one of the owners. She clearly loves her job and cares for each of the kids. Her husband and daughter Danielle also work closely with the kids.

We would be lucky to stay here again in the future!

We came here for an anniversary of our friends. The tiny little A style log houses were so much bigger than they looked. Ours had a nice sized master bedroom, a hyda-bed in the living room, and a loft with 4 double beds. When we arrived, there was a fire in the fireplace and wood on the porch and it was just so comfortable. The lodge has several theme rooms you can stay in as well. Wonderful retreat! Great drive.

We have been trail riding a few times with Western Pleasure. We have been with kids as young as five through teenagers. This area is beautiful and the two hour trail ride gives you many opportunities to see spectacular views of the different mountain ranges. The guides are very helpful and knowledgable…..they make it easy to just relax and enjoy.

We have all been on a sleigh ride at the Ranch. This is really fun with the kids and fun way to get out during the Winter. This is a good option for older people as well as the sleigh is comfortable and the ride is smooth.

The Ranch has lemonade, cookies, hot chocolate, etc out for you when you are finished. This is included with your ride.

We have been 3 years in a row. Always fun to have a horse drawn sleigh ride. The blankets & hot choco provided hit the spot! Great views of Schweitzer.
