We stayed there for a vacation/family reunion. It is one of the BEST B&B's I have stayed. The owners greet you outside as you pull in. You don't have to worry about where the office is. They have tennis, playing in creek, walking in nature, bicycling and my personal favorite, Croquet, to keep you busy in down times. Ann, the... More

The Hansen Guest Ranch will tug at your heart if you have appreciation for country life. For those who need people, many of the guests are international and nice as can be. If you like mobs then Jackson, Wy. is the perfect day trip from here. Tom is a genial walking encyclopedia and Ann is the epitome of Southern hospitality... More

My husband and I recently visited Hansen Silver Guest Ranch with two of our friends. It was my second visit, my husband's third visit and the first for our friends. Obviously we loved it because we keep returning. The breakfast Ann and Tom serve is the best I have ever had anywhere, home included! She serves a Southern style breakfast... More

A front porch on all of the cottages and the old barn beckoned us to sit and look out at buffalo, cattle, and horses grazing the surrounding meadows. We stayed in the old barn, remodeled in a wild-wild west style. The bed was cozy and the room decor charming. Up in the barn loft, sitting areas and tables offered up... More

We stopped for one night at Tom and Ann's ranch and it was great! Tom is a very nice host with all kinds of suggestions and travel advice and a perfect breakfast was prepared by Ann the next morning. We would have stayed longer if our travel plans would have allowed it because of the relaxing surroundings of the ranch... More

Fred and Sofie (their travel names while in the states) are newlyweds from the Netherlands, and it is exciting to see young professional couples from foreign countries traveling here in America. They are very well informed, polite and definitely appreciate the hospitality and scenery in our national parks and surrounding territories. More

I was tasked with hosting our statewide 2012 Fish & Game Administrative Assistant Meeting. It was suggested that I check out the Hansen Guest Ranch in Swan Valley, Idaho. I took a drive to visit the Guest Randch, and knew immediately that this was the perfect place for our meeting. From the very beginning, Ann and Tom were very accommodating.... More

The owners, Tom and Ann, are helpful, personable, gracious, and wonderful people. They are hands-on owners: cooking, cleaning, lawn care, etc. etc. Very little of the work that needs done is hired out. The surroundings are spectacular. Price is very reasonable. Much less expensive than the high-priced towns up the road and much better! I highly recommend the place!

This was my first trip to Swan Valley and someone else made reservations for me at the Hansen-Silver Guest Ranch. I wasn't sure what to expect. Let me say, after spending three nights here, I would never stay anywhere else in this area. Comfort and cleanliness were tops! Hospitality was incredible! And Ann's Southern breakfast with grits is so good... More

The owners make you feel at home. The ranch is beautiful. Ann has beautiful flowers. Tom and Ann have a very special place. They have "Miracle Camps" for children who have cancer. There is a special area in the dining area that honors these children. Don't miss reading the special poems and seeing the beautiful pictures of the children. The... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Hansen Guest Ranch is located along the banks of Rainey Creek and offers western-style accommodations in one and two-bedroom suites, cabins and cottages. Start off each morning with a full sit-down breakfast and then venture off to the river or the trails for an outstanding day of recreation and adventure. For visitors who want to explore outside the Swan Valley area, Jackson Hole is only 43 miles away and the west and south entrances to Yellowstone National Park are 90 miles from the ranch. Championship golf courses are just 19 miles up the hill in the communities of Victor and Driggs, and if you want to enjoy a day at the hot springs, Heise is just down the road. Guests also are welcome just to hang out here at the ranch to read and relax in the hammock or play tennis and croquet or throw horseshoes. A full outdoor cooking area, including a fire pit, oven, range, BBQ grills and smokers, is available for your use for lunches and dinners, too. ... more   less
