We spent three nights at the TA, and had a wonderful time. If you love horses, western skies (with the Big Horns in the backdrop!), beautifully restored historic buildings, great food, and new friends the TA is for you. We rode sure-footed horses with very helpful and friendly guides (wranglers) all over the ranch. It was the first riding three of us had ever done, but everybody loved it.

They were very flexible, and happy to accomodate our interests. We went on a tour of spectacular Crazy Woman Canyon, and also did a little fishing at the reservoir on the ranch. The food and fellowship at meal times made you feel like family. And we loved learning all we could about ranch life, and the history of Wyoming settlement and range wars in the area. Our children (9 and 12) loved it. And the whole family can't wait to go back. Thanks everybody at the TA!

As my mother always said "if you can't say something nice.." but in this instance I really feel like I owe others a heads up about the TA.
First, everyone at the ranch was very nice and the accommodations were clean and comfortable. But, I feel like the website over promises and the ranch doesn't deliver. Specifically some of the activities offered, Living History programs, day tours, hiking the Bighorns were never mentioned or offered. Looking back my guess is that these are activities the guest can do on their own but don't expect a list of available activities provided by the ranch.
The food was very good and I didn't miss a meal but I’m not sure I'd call it gourmet or cowboy sized portions.
The TA is located in the prairie so other than the trees around the ranch buildings you won’t see one again for miles. I should have broken out Google maps to see that it wasn’t located quite at the base of the Sawtooth Mtns. My fault - not theirs.
I won’t go back. Sorry, but for the price it just wasn’t worth it.

We thought a couple of days on a ranch would be a nice way to break up a long trip west, but were not very pleased with this choice. The ranch has an interesting history and the buildings are centered around a beautiful grove of cottonwoods. We stayed in the bunkhouse where the beds were reasonably comfortable but the sitting area was not. We would have loved to enjoy some time on the porches but they were covered by dust, debris and bird droppings, making sitting there a less than pleasant activity. Breakfasts were good, but the other meals were not. My grandson had his first riding lesson there, he enjoyed it and I thought it was well done.

So I would recommend to you The TA Guest Ranch in the wonderful town of Buffalo Wyoming
