My husband and I took our two grandchildren (ages 7 and 11) to the Laramie River Ranch and had a trip of a lifetime. We were beginner riders and all of us had a horse compatible to our level and were riding with confidence within a day or so thanks to the wonderful wranglers--every one of them were very patient,...

From the time you arrive, you feel like family and by the time you leave you have made new friends and are already planning a return trip.The selection of horses is amazing - if you... More

The horses were amazing, the views were spectacular and the food was delicious. We are experienced riders and came to the ranch for some unplugged family time. It was a perfect vacation. We rode in the mornings with a variety of skilled and entertaining wranglers, we hiked in the afternoons learning all about the flora and fauna from the delightful... More

This was the best vacation ever. The food was great, the staff could not be more accommodating nor the scenery more spectacular. Riding instruction was provided at all levels for all ages. We will go again and would recommend this ranch to anyone who wants to ride, fly fish or just relax and smell the sage.

Although there was plenty of riding for my 14 year-old granddaughter and me, we continued laughing and enjoying ourselves with other activities. In fact, just about everything we did was inter-generational. (I was one of four sets of grandparents that week.) The wide open range is spectacular, the staff exceptionally attentive, the food delicious, and the horses well matched with... More

Good horses, good terrain and good horsemanship are the things I most appreciated about LRR. The care and training they invest in their horses and wrangler staff results in some of the best riding I have experienced in fourteen years of going to dude ranches. Thank you to all the wranglers for every gate you opened, cinch you checked and... More

I am a complete novice to horses, my girlfriend is fairly accomplished. Laramie River Dude Ranch had the resources to provide a wrangler and horse for any skill level to go out on every scheduled ride. The wranglers were skilled, patient, and just downright fun! All the staff were friendly and helpful. And the food! The food was delicious, healthy,... More

From the moment we arrived we were welcomed like we were family. Natalie and Brian are a big part of the daily functions and you couldn't ask for nicer people. My cabin was cute and cozy. Nothing fancy but fancy isn't what I was looking for. Each cabin has a small propane stove and a cute small porch. The food... More

I recently stayed at Laramie for a couple of days and had the most amazing time. I didn't really know what to expect when I got there and it more than exceeded my expectations despite the less than perfect weather. The food was really good - it was good homecooked food - nothing fancy but that was the beauty of... More

Had a wonderful experience--the staff, the horses, the accommodations, the food and the the friends we met. Everything was first rate. Thank you Krista and Bill for a trip we'll never forget. We plan to return.
