Western Pleasure Guest Ranch
Ranked #2 of 7 Sandpoint B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 3 August 2014

What a beautiful ranch and operated by several generations of the same family, so they have perfected hospitality. Just the right size of guests each week so everyone quickly become friends. Cabins are very comfortable and welcoming at the end of a busy day. Loved watching the horses come in from the pasture each morning. Trail riding through some beautiful forested trails, and enjoyed the cattle work. I was thinking of all the people in their gray cubicle under fluorescent lights, next to their plastic banana plant...and there we were doing meaningful work on the open range! The food is awesome, I gained 5 pounds. The dinner cruise on Lake Pend Orielle was awesome, seeing bald eagles and the incredible sights along the lake shore. Everything was perfect, and the week went by all too fast. At Western Pleasure Guest Ranch, it's true, you are not simply a guest, you become family. This is one ranch everyone in the family will enjoy

Room Tip: All the cabins are nestled in the woods with some views of the distant mountains. Very peaceful and...

We got a tip from a B&B in Coeur d' Alene on where to stay in Sandpoint. It turned out to be a great tip. We we're on our 40th anniversary enjoying biking and kayaking. So we didn't go horseback riding, everything the ranch offered was very enjoyable. The meals were the best, the hosts were great people who obviously enjoyed their work and life on the ranch. Very relaxing, first class accommodations, beautiful scenery and wildlife. We plan on going back and doing some horseback riding!!

Room Tip: All the rooms were good. Just need to decide if you want to stay in a beautiful lodge or in a cozy...

My family and I stayed here right before the real season started. We stayed in a cabin (The Wrangler) which had a queen downstairs with a queen and two twins in the loft. It was a very nice, clean, updated cabin. It has a wood burning stove equipped with wood! Coffee and hot chocolate are available at all times in the lodge. We did go horseback riding. The ride was great; the horses were great; and the wrangler was great The ranch is GORGEOUS and the owners/family/staff very nice. We cooked for ourselves. I considered volunteering to cook for the summer in exchange for room and board :-). BTW, there is a Walmart close in town. Ask about eating at the General Store.

Our group of 7 women couldn't say enough positive about our adventure at Western Pleasure. Janice and Rolly are outstanding hosts, the facilities are beautiful and the scenic horseback rides are nothing short of picture perfect. We have been for 3 years and have already booked for next year too. You won't be disappointed if you are looking to be out in the woods with a horse or two!

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.
