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

I had been wanting to go stay at a dude ranch for.....ever! When I first heard about the Covered Wagon Ranch, it sounded perfect for my husband and me. I remember calling the first time, and, in answer to my questions, Melissa said," It's your vacation, you tell us what you want." They lived up to that in every way!... More

This year our whole family went to Covered Wagon Ranch and they did not disappoint. Though August was an unusual month for weather, we still rode every day. It rained almost every day and we stayed warm with slickers provided by the ranch. The wranglers were prepared to build fires at the lunch stop so we could warm up. Arriving... More

We travelled as a family of 4 from the UK with our sons aged 15 and 7, and from the moment we arrived we loved it! The scenery is beautiful and even though I had high expectation the area exceeded this! The Covered Wagon Ranch was the perfect location with lovely log cabins that are cosy, clean and we loved...

We did not know what to expect when we headed out to Montana for a ranch vacation. I researched a lot of different ranches and chose Covered Wagon because of the reviews, the authenticity and history of the ranch and it's proximity to Yellowstone. None of us, my husband, myself and kids ages 9,12 &13 had any real horseback riding... More

My family of four (two kids 8 and 10) just returned from the Covered Wagon Ranch. Quite simply this is best family vacation we have gone on. Kurt and Melissa have put together a terrific staff that made our experience wonderful. The wranglers are extremely friendly, patient and knowledgeable. Meals are family style and delicious. The trails are varied and... More

What a fun, experience!! Wranglers were great, scenery was awesome, horses were super and we all had a wonderful time. We had a 6 and 10 year old who had never been on horseback and the wranglers could not have been nicer and more understanding. Different trail every day. Meals were family style and great. (Careful you might put on... More

My wife and I were on a road trip and didn't have but three days on the ranch. We were met with enthusiasm before we could get out of the car. Everyone treated us very cordial. I enjoyed my day and half horse rides. The wrangler was very attentative to me. Safety was a very evident concern. The meals were... More
