It was fun to be away from all of the hussle and bussle. The room was everything we needed and felt clean. The best part of our stay was dinner at the Boulder Mountain Guest Ranch. Do not miss the opportunity to enjoy a delicious dinner!

Good location for hiking and seeing the wonderful sights in the area. Nice pastoral and mountain view. Christy was very helpful when we checked in - but things went downhill after that. The entire place appears to be run down - or maybe it should be advertised as rustic. We noticed litter not being picked up. Lighting in the great... More

We spent two nights in the teepee. It was comfortable and fun! The bed was amazing, the stars were amazing... Though there is a full bath in the lodge, we enjoyed using the outdoor solar-powered shower. The restaurant is wonderful as well. Out of the way, no light pollution or noise. I saw the Milky Way for the first time...great... More

My wife and I, and our 80 pound Golden Scout, spent 2 perfect nights here on our southwest road trip. BMGR was everything we hoped for. A gorgeous low-key guest ranch located pretty much in the middle of nowhere. The perfect place to decompress and catch our breath as we weaved our way from the Rockies on to Bryce and... More

Brandi & Ron continue improve the Ranch to make everyone’s stay the best and they now offer guide service with Scott (who is a dog friendly guide) and his dog Toby. They... More

I did not stay at the ranch, but did visit the restaurant twice. The food is excellent . They had homemade corn icecream which I was delighted with. Check out the menu on their website. Organic and locally grown are items you will find here. I will go back again. Tina from Massachusetts

We stayed for two nights in one of the cabins. It had a queen sized bed and two twin sized bunks. I loved the accommodations. They are rustic if you are expecting a five star hotel. But we enjoy camping and outdoors and the scenery is beautiful to say the least. Our room was clean and it was freezing with... More

I'm sorry but, even though the people at the Boulder Mountain Guest Ranch are really nice, the place is seriously dirty. The tub had what appeared to be rodent droppings in it, a mouse ran through the lounge, there were really nasty dirty little rugs on the dining tables, etc. Would be a cute getaway if they would clean the...

Dark, old, basic. Stayed here because the Boulder Lodge was not available and we wanted to have dinner at Hells Backbone Grill (restaurant is everything you’ve read about) which is next to the Lodge. I would pass on the Guest Ranch however. You may enjoy staying here if you are looking for an adventure - it needs a LOT of... More

This place was a welcome end to a hiking trip. The food, service, and room were all great. And we had an impromptu fiddle concert at dinner. Could not have been a better experience unless I'd been able to stay longer.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Boulder Mountain Guest Ranch is located off the famous Highway 12 on Hell's Backbone Road between Capitol Reef and Bryce Canyon. We are a rustic and quaint lodge with cabins and luxury camping available as well. We have an onsite restaurant called the Sweetwater Kitchen, named after the lovely creek that runs through our property. Hell's Last Outpost is our general store where you can enjoy a cold beverage, trail maps, and art from local artists. We have an onsite hike to a beautiful waterfall where you can enjoy a nice picnic lunch from the Sweetwater Kitchen. All of our rooms are unique to themselves, displaying art of the local canyon country. Take a walk through our garden where you will see your dinner growing for that evening and enjoy a nice hot shower in our living solar shower made from growing willows. Don't forget to call ahead for guide outfitting and horseback riding! ... more   less
