We have just returned from a fantastic holiday!! Thanks LMR for everything. The staff are fantastic and accommodating, and we really all felt part of a family for a week.

Everything was perfect! There was a lot of food, but totally worth it. My parents enjoyed it, and will possibly bring the whole family up there for Christmas / new years. The horse ride was awesome, especially in the rain. It's not too hot, nor cold there. we drank a lot of water, which is better than the other ranches... More

We've been home for 2 weeks and we miss LMR so much. We loved our vacation. The staff is amazing and work so hard to make it a wonderful experience. The kids program blew us away.

My kids both cried themselves to sleep on our last night, devastated to leave their new friends, their beloved horses, the energetic and loving counselors and wranglers, our adorable cabin, and the stunning landscape.

We visited LMR from Australia for a family adventure holiday. We are a family of 3, with a 10 year old daughter. WOW what a place! We were excited as the website promised that LMR was going to be great. The reality was even better! The location is so beautiful it's difficult to believe its real. Beautiful log cabins, forest,...

Lone Mountain was part of a three week holiday of a lifetime trip to the USA for us. Without doubt it was the highlight of our trip. The scenery is stunning, the ranch is beautiful and the experience provided by the staff was truly outstanding. We rode horses, hiked, visited Yellowstone Park, canoed and enjoyed BBQ, live music, outdoor breakfast,... More
