For many years, a trip to a dude ranch in Montana was high on our bucket list. So to celebrate turning 60, my husband and I decided the time had come. While researching the various guest ranches in MT, we kept coming back to CWR. We liked the fact it was smaller, more rustic, and fit our riding style (which... More

My husband and I celebrated our 20th wedding anniversary at CWR. Everyone made our special occasion better than I thought it could be. All the staff was friendly and helpful. The owners Kurt and Melissa made you feel like family and that they were here to make your vacation the one to remember. I can't say enough good things about... More

The experience was more than we could have ever imagined. My wife and I chose CWR from a friends high recommendations. Having some, but not a lot of horse riding experience, we just wanted a nice special wedding Anniversary and riding horses was on our bucket list. Even before we got there, the attention to our needs and information provided... More

We're from Chicago and had never been to a guest ranch. We chose this one for our honeymoon on account of all the positive reviews that it's received from previous guests... flawless reviews. Well, it turns out those reviews are very well deserved. Quite possibly the most friendly group of people running an establishment that we've ever had the pleasure... More

My family has travelled a lot and been to many great places.....yet never have we taken time to review anything online. We would be so remiss, however, if we didn't convey our experience at Covered Wagon Ranch. We typically never return to a place for vacation because there are so many places in the world to see. This summer we... More

The Covered Wagon Ranch is superb because is allows each guest to design the perfect vacation. This is a very small place (12 – 14 guests when I was there in September 2013), and really caters to its customers. The phrase “it’s your vacation – what would you like?” came up quite a few times, both from the owners and... More

CWR was great place to spend our vacation. We had a 2 bedroom log cabin w/ a potbelly stove which was perfect. We rode 5 out of the 6 days we were at CWR and everyday was a new a different experience. The food was excellent. We are from Texas so the August weather in MT was such a nice... More

We were part of Laura C's extended family that enjoyed a stay at the ranch. Having been there 15+ years ago, I was eager to take my wife and daughter. My 5 year old now wants to move to Montana and work at the ranch. We were treated like part of the family (hmm . . . maybe better) and... More

The CWR has wonderful, well trained and loved horses, friendly owners and staff, and access to beautiful rides. They tailor every ride to each person, from the length of the ride to the scenery you want to ride through each day. The food was good and plentiful and the bed was really comfortable. The spa felt great after a 6... More

My family of 4 spent a week at this magical location. Rising with the sun in the crisp Gallitan Valley air, one lights the wood stove with "cowboy dust" and follows the aroma to the dining room for a full, wonderful breakfast. The head wrangler asks "what kin' of ridin' do you wanna do today?" Then, it's all set. Your... More
