“Beautiful Scenery, Wranglers are so Patient!”
Reviewed 20 July 2006

We definately recommend staying at the Parade Rest Ranch. The scenery is absolutely beautiful. Fields of wildflowers that change by the day. We loved the trail rides especially. Our wranglers were incredibly helpful and took into consideration our level of experience. The food was very good as well. Both the waitstaff and the chefs were friendly and went out of their way to make food that did not affect my food allergies. When we first drove into the ranch, we saw children playing in the yard, staff mingling with the guests and very quaint cabins. Our cabin was rustic and a perfect fit for us. The wood stove added a cozy touch. Our only complaint was that it was too hot to actually make use of the stove. Our best vaction thus far!

The 2 hour trail ride was a terrible experience. Barn-sour horses were tacked and saddled, chosen by the wranglers before the arrival of any riders. Riders experience was not a consideration. Novice riders cannot be expected to control these horses with bad manners, and moderate- to- good riders should not tolerate it.
I had back spasms for a week from holding up the head of my horse who was trying to eat grass the entire trip. The outing was expensive, too. I have no comment of any other aspect of the ranch, as we were staying elsewhere

We had the best vacation time this year at the Parade Rest Ranch. The wranglers helping us with our mountain horseback riding were the best that can be found. The food in the rustic dining hall was wonderful, and view of the snow capped mountains as we sat on the porch of our log cabin were just breathtaking. Our neighbors were the prairie dogs and deer that stopped by in the mornings. It was great, would do it again in a heartbeat! We were just minutes from Yellowstone National Park and had time to visit there a couple of times, also a wonderful experience.
Thanks to all you guys who made this trip so great!

Our stay at Parade Rest Ranch, near West Yellowstone, was exceptional.
We stayed in a cabin near the creek, with easy access to the Jacuzzi and dining hall, and a short walk to the stable. The staff went out of their way to make us feel at home. I spent my days horseback riding and my husband enjoyed fishing. The entrance to Yellowstone Park and the town of West Yellowstone are just a short drive away, yet your feel like you're miles away from civilization (and work, chores, etc.) when you're at the Ranch. We had the perfect vacation at Parade Rest Ranch.

Parade Rest had a great family atmosphere,in a rustic outdoor setting.
The food was great. The kitchen packed picnic lunches that were great for park exploring. The horseback riding in the mountains was the most memorable. Our BEST vacation ever.
