We were in the 'Victorian Room' in the main house. We had become accustomed to hotels and motels with en suite bathrooms, so it was a bit of a shock to have a shared bathroom with no lock on the door This was the owner's house, and it was a bit of a 'Blackpool Landlady' situation. They didn't want their... More

Our night at Lonesome Dove Guest Ranch was an opportunity to reside in a teepee (with two single beds and a portapotty). Also offered are rooms or cabins with a bathroom. All included a hearty "home cooked" breakfast as part of the price of the stay. The ranch is located several, easy to get to, miles outside of Kalispel. It... More

Traveling north to the Glacier National Park, we booked one night in a teepee at the Londesome Dove Guest Ranch in Kalispell as the price seemed reasonable compared to other accommodations in the area. The teepee was offered with single beds on a frame, so we thought, why not experience some "Glamping"--Glamour camping. Upon arrival, we were informed that we... More

Booked this guest ranch for 2 nights based on Trip Advisor reviews. Lonesome Dove was our final 2 nights of a Glacier National Park trip. Our stay was average at best. I am sharing this information with others in hopes they will receive the stay they are seeking. We chose a cabin. Tipis and tents are also available. The cabin... More

We didn't actually stay at the ranch, but rather did their trail ride! The ranch was located on 26,000 acres and we did breakfast in the dining room prior to our morning departure for our 2 hour ride. Everyone we encountered was so nice.. Sharon and Noel especially. I would highly recommend this place as it was truly authentic.

This whole experience was so good.The owners and staff are tremendous. It is hard to pick out a favorite experience: the animals, breakfast, dinner, probably the best of all was the interaction between the guests. I loved all the suggestions of places to see and things to do. Would definitely go back...

Went on 2 hour horse ride with dinner. Leonard (very nice and patient) led the ride and the views are Beautiful! Horses were healthy and well cared for. Dinner was very tasty and they sell lots of their homemade mixes, jellies and dressings in their office/store. Entertainment was the Last Singing Cowboy and he was entertaining. A very nice family...

Our family of 4 adults and 2 16-year-old boys did the 2 hour afternoon trail ride and stayed for the dinner and entertainment. The trail ride was awesome - scenery is beautiful and a wonderful way to see breathtaking views without off-road vehicles. Horses were great - there is a mix of breeds that I found to be pretty cool... More

We are two Brits who recently stayed at Lonesome Dove Ranch. The whole experience was wonderful. Clean pleasant rooms and caring staff made for a pleasant stay whilst we were visiting Glaciers Nation Park and the surrounding area. Our evening horse ride will live in our memories for many years to come. The undoubted highlight however were Hal & Sharron.... More

This ranch has potential. However, the owner needs to be up-front during booking and state clearly that you need to bring your own sleeping bag designed for cold temps - true whether you stay in a tepee or in the cabins. We stayed in the tepee and when we arrived and saw the beds with just a sheet and fleece... More

Sharron B, Owner at Lonesome Dove Guest Ranch, responded to this review

I'm very sorry you were unhappy Jennifer. I did express that at breakfast when I asked you why you didn't use all of the extra blankets that we left for you in the wall tent. Our temperatures are averaging about 45 - 58 at night. Admittedly, it was a bit colder than usual, but I have no control over that.... More
