A real disappointment on a weekend we were looking forward to. Drove 4+ hours to get here, and this was a real letdown. The 'rooms' are spartan and smelly, and ZERO privacy. The hot tub appears non-functional, and the 'Rock BBQ' is a joke. It's a cheap and filthy gas grill. An extremely loud and obnoxious party of French dbags... More

We had a wonderful 2 hour trail ride. Our wrangler , Brinna (sp?) was friendly and made all the riders feel comfortable . We ranged from beginners to experienced riders. Each rider was given the perfect horse !

We found this ranch offering horse back riding while staying in Winthrop. We were not disappointed. Took my kids on a lovely 1 hour ride with a guide. She was delightful, the trail was easy & the horses were perfect for us beginner cowboys. We will return.

We booked 2 nights and a horseback ride for our anniversary. The owner told us on the phone where the cabins were, that it would be unlocked with the key on the table, and we found it with no problem. The room was small and the furnishings are old but comfy. Nothing special here, but nothing terrible either. Although it... More

Stayed here 9/20 and 9/21 to attend a relative's wedding in Winthrop. Booking this place as extremely difficult. I e-mailed and was told to call, called and got voicemail with indications to call a different number. Called that number and the person that answered told me he was in the field and he'd call back. Once I was ready to... More

I contacted the ranch by email requesting information on lodging and horseback riding. This was June 11, we were inquiring about Sept 2 and 3. I received an email response from Chris indicating they had availability on lodging and she recommended 4 hour ride. My husband called and talked to Don, he scheduled the lodging and the horseback ride. Upon... More

My family and I have been going to Winthrop every Labor Day weekend for a few years now. Each year we stay at a different place in Winthrop in order to compare each experience. Staying at the Chewack Guest Ranch has been our best experience so far. We are a family of four with two young girls. The advantage of... More

We had the BEST time at Chewack River Guest Ranch! The owners, Don & Chris are wonderful hosts! The cabins are perfect and the horses are the best I've ever ridden! I rented all the cabins for a weekend party--22 people--and everything was perfect! A huge Thank You to Don & Chris for all their help with the party (finding... More

I had a great horseback ride at Chewack Riding Stables. Nice smooth horse, wonderful trail into the sage with a great view of Lake Perragyin. Dan and Chris Lundgren run this ranch with their family. They are very involved and Dan went along for the ride. He had great stories and lots of enthusiasm. A great place for a beautiful... More
