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

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

This was our second trip to Hunewill Ranch. I know it's hard to reproduce the "first time magic" with a vacation spot but the Hunewills are so good at treating you like family, we actually had a better time than when last there in 2012. It really is the perfect place to relax and hit the re-set button on your... More

I just wrote a review on Yelp for them. Went twice this year. Just an amazing experience. A real working ranch, not a spa with horses. Super-friendly family, they really make you feel at home. Great for kids. My favorite experience is driving and cutting the cattle with the horses, a whole new dimension to the riding experience.

The South Pacific may be Paradise, but the Hunewill Guest Ranch is Heaven on Earth. Once you arrive at the ranch the friendly staff (most of whom are Hunewill family members) immediately begin to welcome you and make you feel right at home. Next you find your charming and very comfortable little ranch cabin and then it starts to set... More

If you are considering a stay at a proverbial "dude ranch" please consider the family-run Hunewill Guest Ranch in Bridgeport, CA. My wife and I stayed there over the July 4th week 2012 and we couldn't be more pleased. The staff are safety concious, but always accomodating to the guests. We were very well fed (can't wait for more buckaroo... More

We all had a terrific week at the Hunewill ranch riding horse daily was the real thing not some stable ride! Based on your ability to manage your horse, you can experience the rare freedom nowadays to be a cowboy and lope through fields jump ditches and feel America at its roots. The kids from 5 to teens just had... More
