Looked online for a place to take my 2 teenage daughters horseback riding in Oregon, and did we hit the jackpot. The stars on the night we arrived were pretty amazing. The breakfast the next morning was just as advertised and then we spent 5 hours on horseback just riding in the hills and enjoying incredible, unspoiled Oregon mountain scenery.... More

It is quite a drive to Fossil...especially when its 90 plus degrees.....but spending time here makes it all worthwhile! The ranch nestles in a quiet valley away from the small town...go outside in the middle of the night and see the stars!!!!! Take a ride with some of the family or their ranch hands.....get really close to Oregon! the arrival... More

We were originally booked for 3 nights and ended up adding another night to make it 4 nights of a lovely visit. We also did not know what to expect and were delighted when we met so many wonderful people from many different places. The breakfast table is a definite highlight of staying at the ranch. Great story telling and... More

The breakfast was great, Nancy stayed with us and we had a very nice time. The bedroom was very clean and so the bed and breakfast in general. When you get in your... More

We went to fossil so our child could dig for fossil at Wheeler high school. There is really no where to stay near fossil so we booked this B&B for one night. The house is set on a ranch far off the main road, which was nice. I think the main reason people stay there is to go horse back... More

We enjoyed meeting a number of very nice people, including our hosts Nancy and Phil Wilson, and as many others have said, they are wonderful and treat anyone that comes there as friends and family and not just guests. when we made reservations, we weren't...

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
