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. Everyone there from Kurt and Melissa to all, the staff have top priorities from the welfare of the horses and your enjoyment of the... More

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...

Absolutely wonderful accommodations! Treated us like family. Picked out perfect horses for each of us. The rides were absolutely stunning! The wranglers were helpful and kind, very patient with all of our questions! Home away from home for me! The entire crew from cooks to the gals that cleaned our room and the air staff were friendly and so willing... More

Amazing Ranch run by amazing people....the Covered Wagon Family (including Kurt) really know how to make you welcome out west. The location is stunning close to Yellowstone National Park and open to rides and in my cases trail runs all around the surrounding wilderness areas !!! Yet you are only ever an hour away from Bozeman and my favourite airport... More

A good friend has been bringing his family to Covered Wagon for years and raving about it, so when it came time for our annual business owner's retreat, we headed to Big Sky country to see what it was all about. The terrain is spectacular, the river is magical and the horses become trusted friends; but the staff, THAT is... More

The Covered Wagon Ranch was one of my best vacations ever...by the river in beautiful Montana. Well trained horses, wranglers and crew that will even dance for you if you ask! Great food....packed lunches...and cabins that take you back in time with that warm cozy feel...rockers on the front porch and mares with foals grazing by your steps. Made many... More

Kurt and Melissa highly value their family - a family which includes not just their little boy but their horses, their employees, and all their guests. They have built up an extremely loyal team of wranglers and staff who clearly love their jobs and their employers, which is great to see as a guest and makes for an excellent experience.... More

****** If I could give the Covered Wagon Ranch six stars, I would. I initially had the idea to visit a ranch several years ago when envisioning a vacation experience for my children that would include a unique setting with lots of outdoor activity, and not very much cellphone service. In my research, I stumbled upon the Covered Wagon Ranch.... More
