I wanted to experience a cattle drive. I dreamed of having a real cowboy experience. I got all of that and more. The cattle drive puts you back in the Old West, driving cows over stock trails that have been in use since the 1860's. You are going to see breath taking scenery and vistas that allow you to see...

My family has traveled around the world but this is our favorite annual vacation.. We have tried other guest ranches and they are boring compared with Hunewill. They offer beginning to advanced riding and special wranglers for beginners who are excellent at teaching how to ride. My family has been visiting since 2004 and we love the long lopes through...

My wife and I booked the fall color ride and spent four wonderful days at the ranch seeing fall begin in the Eastern Sierras. The rides to the hot springs in Buckeye Canyon and the high ride to Crown Lake were unforgettable. As always, the Hunewill family and staff broke their necks making our stay the very best. This was... More

Learning how to ride horses in Golden Gate Park, I have been dreaming of coming to a ranch, like Hunewill, since I was 10 years old. Special thanks to my husband for coming along for the ride...literally! Many of the Hunewill guests are like my husband with almost zero riding experience. The majority of their horses are very safe for... More

Where do I start? We just went there for the 20th year in a row. The kids (now adults) love it, and so do my husband. Wonderful riding, incredible hospitality from the same family that had run the ranch for more than 100 years.

We just returned from 5 days at this ranch and enjoyed the whole experience. All the other guests had been coming to the ranch for years so were well used to everything the ranch and the immediate area had to offer, but we were seeing things for the first time. I did not ride but my daughter did and she... More

I wish there was more variety in the riding at this ranch. I stayed for a week, and every day but one we went riding on the meadows. This was very fun for the first couple of days but it does get old. I would have liked to ride to different places and seen different things. The food was mediocre.... More

Hi Rachelle, Here at the ranch we do our best to provide each guest with a great experience and so it's unfortunate your expectations for your stay here were not met. It sounds as though you were most disappointed with the riding, which was primarily in the meadows during your week long stay. We do offer different stays and packages,... More

I just returned from the Fall Color Ride weekend at Hunewill Ranch, and wanted to write a review immediately. This place is FANTASTIC. I could not recommend it more. This sums it up - nobody would pay to take a vacation and do my job for a week, but I paid to do their job for a weekend and LOVED... More

The Hunewill Guest Ranch is all about riding. For this reason, I was a little anxious about bringing my non riding husband along with my two teenage girls (who like horses, but don't ride regularly). My husband was pretty dubious about it too. Hunewill did its usual magic, and after the first "Buckaroo" (beginner) ride my husband was really thrilled.... More

1st trip to the ranch with the goal of becoming a more confident rider. Mission accomplished! The Hunewill family and the wranglers they employ made us feel really welcome and safe. This is a serious ranch with serious cattleman & horseman (& women)! After a few days I felt confident enough to go on an all day cattle drive -... More
