The covered wagon ranch is an amazing place to stay. My family and I can't wait to go back. Kurt and Melissa, Ranch owners, are excellent hosts. They know how to run a ranch and give their guest a 5 star stay. The horses are well cared for and you will be sad to leave them. the wranglers are all... More

My husband, two daughters (11 and 13) and I just returned home from The Covered Wagon Ranch in Montana. This was by far the best vacation we have ever had. The staff at The Covered Wagon are exceptionally nice and helpful. We are not experienced horse riders, and it was no problem at all. The wranglers taught us about horses... More

My husband and I just spend a fabulous week at the Covered Wagon Ranch. Each morning we started off with breakfast in the main lodge and visiting with the other guests. The owners, Melissa and Kurt greeted us and asked us what our plans were for the day. Riding was our primary goal and they were great at helping us... More

The Covered Wagon Ranch is a truly wonderful place and is suited to a wide variety of guests. I traveled alone from the UK and was a little unsure what to expect. From the moment I arrived, I was made to feel at home. It is very clear from the atmosphere at CWR, my experiences and conversations with the crew... More

The old adage is that "familiarity breeds contempt." Nothing could be farther from reality for our fifth visit to the Covered Wagon in June. Planned as a vacation with our teenage grandaughters, this ranch experience broadened their horizons--and then some. Curt and Melissa are taking what was already one of the best dude ranch experiences out there and are building... More

The Covered Wagon is absolutely wonderful. The cabins are nice and meals are great. My girls loved all of the horseback riding! There's no doubt about us wanting to go back. We can't say enough about the owners and the staff - they're absolutely the best. We would highly recommend it.

As a solo English traveller, who has not done a huge amount of riding, I was a little concerned whether or not I had picked the right place. But I knew as soon as I arrived at the ranch that I had made the right choice and that's without even getting on a horse! From the moment I was picked... More

After touring Glacier National Park and a couple of days in Bozeman, we had a family get together at the ranch for 4 days in July. Lot's of food and friendly people. The owners and staff go the extra mile to make sure your stay is memorable. Each morning they meet with the riders and ask what type of ride... More

Me and my daughter visited Covered Wagon Ranch based on the strong recommendation of a neighbor and now we can heartily add our own voices to the contingent of "happy campers". The views, the care, the value, the personal attention - - all first class. While many others were there for repeat visits, in short order we felt just as... More
