My husband and I chose BMR to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary. I am an experienced rider, but my husband is not and wasn't thrilled with the idea until he saw that he could also go fishing and try other activities (the saloon didn't hurt either). From the time we were picked up at the airport until our reluctant goodbyes,... More

My friend and I, both from Ireland decided to try out the "Dude ranch" experience, we did our homework and picked Black Mountain Ranch, from reading the reviews we decided that if it was half as good as what people were saying we would be happy. It couldn't have been more perfect, the accommodation, the food, the horses, the staff,... More

Outstanding for families, couples, family reunions! Black Mountain Ranch combines authentic buildings and surroundings with great food, friendly staff, horses for all experience levels, a wonderful saloon suitable for all ages, a flexible activity schedule (including “do nothing and relax”), and all activities are included. The mountain setting is beautiful. We first visited BMR in 2013 as a couple after... More

I was so looking forward to this holiday and it didn't disappoint. We had a list of criteria that we were looking for from our ranch experience and Black Mountain Ranch delivered on all; we could horse ride for as long as we liked & the group rides were divided into levels of experience....so my friend and I, who are...

Granted this is the only dude ranch I've been too, but I can't imagine it gets any better. The mountain location is stunning, the food is phenomenal and plentiful, and there's a giant jar in the dining room that constantly refills with fresh cookies if you do happen to get peckish between meals, which I never did as they feed...

This September I spent one of the best weeks of my life with my family at Black Mountain Ranch. I've never been a keen horse rider (/never been on a horse) so was hesitant to travel all the way from England for this adventure, but I couldn't be happier that I did... Not only was the scenery breathtakingly beautiful, the... More

My time at the ranch went beyond my expectations by far. This was a bucket list/dream vacation for me and I want to do it all over again and again. The owners, wranglers, horses, chef and everyone else there including the views are wonderful. If I can save the money I will be back to the ranch for sure. You... More

I found it! Black Mountain Ranch will exceed your expectations. The owners and wranglers go out of their way to make your stay the best experience ever. Great horses, baby goats to pet, dogs and donkeys, chickens and rabbits. Always somebody around to pet. Delicious food at every meal. Fun saloon with free pool table, hot tubs, pool, whitewater rafting,... More

My husband and I decided to go to a dude ranch to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary. We were afraid to end up at a "hokey, corny" dude ranch with someone announcing, "howdy, folks, are y'all ready for a hay ride?" We had such a great time at Black Mountain Ranch. They treat you like good friends, & they are... More

All the reviews you've read about BMR are spot on, but words can't express the real-life experience! You have to try it! Without a doubt, the May family has made this one of the greatest places you could ever visit. Everyone at the ranch is genuinely fantastic, and they make every guest honestly feel like family. Every activity is super... More
