If you want a break from the canned horse-back riding experience (trail riding nose to tail in a slow line) and want to experience REAL cowboy living, this is the place for you! These were the highlights: * Gracious hosts Dave and Chrissy and Natalie and Brian made us feel welcome from the initial hello all the way to the... More

As we arrived we discovered the owner of the ranch have changed in April. No one told us before. Even email was from Susan Hotaling. The welcome was warm and the new owner’s two families are very nice. The area around Badger Creek is great there is a lot to see we visited caves, a pond for swimming, buffalo fall... More

My daughter and I visited Badger Creek at the beginning of June for a true ranch experience. I was so delighted with the entire week, it completely fulfilled my bucket list wish. The owners are fabulous people and made us feel like part of the family. We were able to ride every day (even in the rain) and explore the... More

My first ranch vacation ever - and it was so great! Badger Creek Ranch has a breathtaking location. Angie's cooking is fabulous - if you are here to loose weight, it won't work :-). After a couple of hours I already felt at home. The team does not only talk about Natural Horsemanship, they live it. I enjoyed the groundwork... More

We had a fantastic visit, well organized with great food. The scenery was evocative and stunning. Such a peaceful place, we wished we could have stayed a lot longer, although we left with batteries fully recharged. The owners/ staff just took the best care of us, and we are definitely coming back!

Badger Creek Ranch is the perfect choice for an authentic ranching vacation. Waking up to the beautiful mountain views and exploring the vast countryside on horseback was exactly what we were looking for in a trip out west. What we did not expect were the amazing river and mountain hikes, wildlife, high definition stargazing, fascinating native Ute artifacts and landmarks,... More

My husband and I just visited badger creek ranch for 3 days. What a beautiful drive to this extremely remote and breath taking location tucked back into the mountains with tons of open space! Eric was a wonderful guide and took us on horseback to a buffalo jump, springs, and the famous buffalo head rock formation! Sue prepared wonderful home... More

I loved every second of my week, Sue & Eric were perfect hosts. The scenery was breathtaking, the horses were easy to ride, the food was excellent (Sue catered above and beyond for my gluten-free needs) and the atmosphere was relaxed and comfortable. The holiday far exceeded my expectations, I did not want to leave. At the end of the... More

When I started searching for my “ranch vacation” I was looking for an authentic experience based on the principle “less is more”; meaning the less rooms available and people staying the same time the better. So I excluded ranches with a 100 horses and 100 rooms right away. And this is how I found Badger Creek Ranch. They take a... More

I have dreamed of a vacation "out west" for as long as I can remember. Traveling/vacationing is not something I can afford to do often and it is also difficult to get away from my responsibilities here in Maine, so this was my "one shot" at picking the right place. I needed something that would heal my heart due to... More

Hey Andrea and Grace! Thanks for the great review. I am so glad you were happy with your stay with us. Sometimes I worry when someone books early in the year and I know it is a important and rare vacation for them that they might be disappointed after all the planning. I am so glad this worked for you... More
