“Fabulous Place for a retreat!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 May 2014

The Western Pleasure Guest Ranch was a five star all the way. I was there for a small conference in basket weaving. The very large keeping room had room for classes, meals and a beautiful sitting area with a large fireplace and leather furniture. The lodge room were very nice with local decor, handmade quilts and en suite baths. There are also lovely cabins with kitchens for families. All meals were included with our retreat and they were delicious. Other activities we took advantage of were horse back riding and hiking. We look forward to going back next year.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Siesta Room.

My family and I visited the ranch to celebrate our daughter's birthday. We spent an afternoon horseback riding and had two wonderful guides(Issac and Barb). The cabin was beautiful and the views were spectacular. We saw several wild turkeys and went for a walk on trails around the property. We will definitely return for another family getaway.

My family just moved to the Inland Pacific Northwest several months ago and stumbled upon an incredible family owned lodge in the Sandpoint area of Idaho. The land has been in the family for 5 generations and serves as a perfect example of what hard work, dedication and love can create. We first experienced the WPGR when we arranged a sleigh ride to choose our Christmas tree. What an amazing adventure! We highly recommend this unique experience. The lodge is very welcoming. Hot chocolate or apple cider, tea and popcorn await your return from the brisk ride to choose the perfect tree for your home. We enjoyed our experience so much, we made arrangements to stay about a week over new years. Roley and Janice own the ranch and their children, and some wonderful staff, help run it. They are the quintessential hosts! Very accommodating and pleasant. We felt like family when we left. We stayed in the lodge in the Nes Perce room. The room is not large but has a fun loft our 6 year old really enjoyed playing in. The dinner meals were top notch - usually include a nice cut of beef, chicken, steamed veggies, potatoes (the au gratin were to die for!!), fresh tossed salad, hot bread and dessert. Yum! The atmosphere of the lodge is very inviting and cozy. There is always a fire going. New Year's Eve was a treat. They had a duo named "Pear" playing who were amazing! They will make it big someday. Incredible fiddle players and kind folks as well. We will return over the summer to experience a week of summer camp at the ranch. We look forward to seeing our "family" once again.

I have gone on sleigh rides here and it was out of this world! It was a Winter Wonderland and their big beautiful draft horses were decked out with bells and I felt like I was in a fairy tale! The owners are friendly and helpful, and enjoy serving their guests. Afterwards, we came back to their beautiful lodge and were served hot chocolate and popcorn. In the summer, it is great, too, with lots to do in a serene mountain setting. Highly recommended!

Very hospitable & friendly place in an easily accessible remote location. Well cared for & responsive horses (& dogs!). We were the only people staying in the lodge (October) - so it was very quiet - but I can imagine the hub of activity that must make it a fun place in the summer. We'd love to return for one of their longer getaway packages. The cabins looked pretty cozy. We're locals, but if you haven't been to Sandpoint - it's close by (15 min) & a charming lakeside community with a top notch ski mountain (Schweitzer) that's as close to WPGR as it is to Sandpoint.

Dog friendly, quiet, super nice cabins on a huge ranch. This is known for week long ranch stays with all the horses and fixings ... We just stayed 2 nights in the Hunters cabin and a truly magical place. For the price of a decent hotel room, get away from it all and live a little. The owner, the granddaughter of the original owner knows her craft and hospitality.
The place is delicious :)
