My wife and I just returned from our 4th straight vacation to the CWR, and as in the 3 previous visits our expectations were exceeded beyond words. Staff, accommodations, location of the ranch, and ownership are all in when it comes to satisfying their guests, although family/friends would be a more accurate.

Our family of four (2 adults, 2 children ages 7 and 9) just returned from 4 nights at the Covered Wagon Ranch. After endless searching for the perfect ranch I decided on the CWR based on the excellent reviews. They did not disappoint! From the moment we arrived to the moment we left we were treated like family. Our children... More

It is the people who work here that make this place special. From the time we arrived and got the grand tour, everyone went above and beyond. Riding was done based on what we wanted, not set tours. One day I took a two hour ride in a flat area while my brother took a much longer ride up on... More

Our recent trip to the CWR was everything we were expecting and more. The staff were attentive and accommodating, and we appreciated the small group trail rides to amazing scenery. I have nothing more to add from the previous reviews except that I don't think anyone has mentioned the ranch is right on a busy road. The cabins face a... More

My mom and I were looking for a great ranch/horseback riding vacation together in Montana and the Covered Wagon Ranch was great in every aspect. From the moment we arrived on the ranch, we were treated like family. The cabins, each a little different, were well kept and cozy...a wood stove in each one for cool Montana nights and views...

Read the other reviews, this place is exceptional. We have stayed other places in the canyon in the past, and we will not need to ever try a new place again. The staff is exceptional, and Kurt & Melissa make you feel like family. The rides are beautiful. Perhaps the best part of the rides is how small the groups... More

I cant tell you all how excited my husband and I are at being able to tell any of you, who are considering a Ranch Holiday, the Covered Wagon is the best for the following reasons.

I'm not sure how much I can add to what others have said in relation to the many positive comments. Yes, Kurt and Melissa treat everyone like a family, yes the accommodations are wonderful, and yes all the staff are friendly and fun. As a bit of background, I used to ride as a teenager but hadn't ridden more than... More

My new bride and I spent the first week of our honeymoon at the Covered Wagon Ranch and it was the best decision we ever made. The owners, Kurt and Melissa, treat everyone like family and we were welcomed like they've known us for years. The entire staff is friendly, professional, and fun! We made fast friends with all of...
