Beautiful lodge and rooms, the people are wonderful in making sure all your needs are met. I'm highly impressed and will recommend this place to all photographers I know. The wranglers work so very hard to get the pictures of the horses running in the snow, the cowboys in the right position, or whatever you possibly would like to photograph.... More

The Hideout is one of those places you hope exists. And it does. My husband and I stayed here for four days for some of our honeymoon and it ticked almost every box for us. We were both brought up with horses (the English way! which we were mocked for incessantly while we were there...) and we had always wanted... More

Just wanted to let anyone looking to go on an Outstanding vacation, the Hideout is the place! The scenery is very diverse and all of it is beautiful.

When I first began my research for a mother/son trip, I knew that I wanted some sort of horseback riding to be the main focus. As urban dwellers I am always a bit wary of the "middle of nowhere" and usually much more comfortable with an abundance of people and structure. So I had narrowed our vacation destinations to a...

The food, the locale, 25 interesting guests, diverse activities, the staff, and of course, the riding...all were superb, wonderful, AMAZING! The three of us have very different interests, and each of us had one of the best vacations ever, hands down. My 17-year old daughter spent every minute in the saddle, include two cattle drives, and is already planning to... More

When my family of five was ready for a guest ranch vacation out West, we had a long and varied list of criteria. The Hideout surpassed our expectations and constantly impressed us in ways we never expected! I'll provide the Mom's perspective… The riding experience in our family varies greatly -- I've shown Quarter Horses at a national level for... More

I don't even know how to begin to express what a wonderful family vacation that we had at the Hideout. We were very beginner riders looking for a family adventure and the staff at The Hideout delivered and then some. The best way to describe the owners, managers, wranglers and culinary staff is "authentic hospitality". You could tell that everyone... More
