This is just the coolest place ever! Being from the UK, this was a great experience for us. We had driven quite a way to get to the Ranch and we were really happy when we got there. The land around the house is just beautiful and you can see for miles and miles; it really made me feel like... More

I needed a new adventure to celebrate my 57th birthday and found it at Wilson Ranches Retreat and B&B. I have to admit that at first I was apprehensive about the possibility of riding a horse, after all they are taller than I am. But my co-workers encouraged me to do so and to return to tell the tell. So... More

Our family party, mom, daughter & grandparents, stayed here for two nights late October. We knew ahead from Nancy's e mail that we were to let ourselves in and make ourselves at home, which we did. Our rooms were charming & rustic, cosy and very clean. The next morning Nancy and Phil arrived at 7am to prepare breakfast, we met... More

This is a great retreat, a chance to see the Milky Way again, a chance to sense what the vast expanse was like, a chance to ride working horses or to imagine the geologic times of mammoth volcanos. We came not knowing quite what to expect but enjoyed these days during our 10 day "Oregon adventure" more than any others.

We spent two nights here and thoroughly enjoyed it. Phil and Nancy do a great job running their 12,000 acre ranch plus a house turned into a b&b, with bedrooms on all 3 floors. Some rooms have shared baths, which worked out fine for us, but may be bit of a hike if your room is upstairs. We took a... More

We arrived early evening after a long trip northwards. The welcome on the door invited us in and asked us to phone the homestead. Nancy was wonderful and gave us all the instructions we needed. We brough a meal with us and used the utility room to organise ourselves. We walked the road a few miles and enjoyed the scenery... More

We wanted to spend 2 days in John Day Fossil Beds and found this one and only lodging rated excellent by TripAdvisors. They were booked solid and we changed our itinerary around to get the one-night vacancy. The wonderful B&B is some distance away from the working ranch, in a beautiful valley surrounded by majestic mountains. Nancy and Phil Wilson... More

We spent one night here, but clearly should have planned for a longer stay! There are a number of rooms, ours was quite small, but a very comfortable bed, and bedding was very nice Shared bathrooms (2) which I was quite daughter by to begin with, but actually worked out fine. The breakfast was really good, scrambled eggs, bacon and... More

During our brief visit we experienced a comfortable and relaxing visit, and met people from around the world. Dramatic scenery provided this amateur photographer with some great shots. We saw dozens of deer in the fields and one rattlesnake on the road. WWR is a real ranch operation and the Wilson family is a great example for all of us.... More
