I was drawn to the Western Pleasure Guest Ranch for a unique dinner and concert experience. What I found at the Ranch was the opportunity to relax in what truly is a winter wonderland. The lodge was tastefully decorated for the Christmas holiday. They offer sleigh rides at the Ranch which adds to the winter experience during your stay. There... More

Recently enjoyed a snowy three night stay here. We arrived around midnight, the first night, and stayed in one of the lodge's upstairs rooms. I was awakened, in the morning, by someone walking up the adjacent stairs. (There are other rooms, though, not located so proximal to the stairs). The next two nights were spent in one of the cabins... More

We have wanted to stay here for awhile and the winter sleigh ride, dinner and show package, as well as overnight was perfect... Our entire experience was delightful, complete from the phone call to make the booking. We felt like family as did the other guests we met there... The snow has been exceptional this year and the sleigh ride... More

It said on the website that they did bed and breakfast. We weren't offered breakfast, or shown around, or made to feel at all welcome. The chairs were all up on the tables in the restaurant at breakfast-time and we felt as if we were intruding whenever we went near the main hotel. The website offered hot tubs and campfires,...

Thank you for bringing this issue to my attention. I am sorry we did not meet your expectations. One of things that our guests comment on the most is how welcome and at home they feel at the ranch so I am very discouraged that that is the thing that you missed during your stay. Because of your late check... More

The ultimate cabin in the woods. Easy to get to, about 15 miles from town. The dog took us for a walk and seemed to know the paths we wanted to take. He also coaxed us to start a fire by bringing kindling to the wood stove. We also had a light snow which just made our stay all to... More

We recently spent four nights at the ranch in one of the beautiful cabins. Traveling in the shoulder season meant that activities like hayrides, bonfires, etc. weren't available, which was fine with us. We loved the peace and quiet. Our hosts, Roley and Janice, could not have been more welcoming. We ate several excellent meals at the ranch and met... More

The setting was quite, plenty of room to move around, and shower had plenty of hot water. Wood stove for the cool fall evenings (wood was included) We enjoyed the trail rides and where appreciative of the... More

We chose Western Pleasure Guest Ranch as a place to stay while we were in Idaho exploring Sandpoint. It was a wonderful deviation from the standard hotel. My husband, in-laws and I stayed in the Meadow View Log Cabin and found it was a peaceful retreat at the end of the day. The cabin was comfortable with a full bathroom... More

Perfect setup for a horse camp, with morning/afternoon/evening activities, great freshly cooked breakfast and plenty of animals and land for walking/hiking/riding. Be aware it's far from Sandpoint town, so you'll have to drive if you want some food/drink in town
