If you are looking for a remote getaway and love the great outdoors and horses "look no further". Goosewing Ranch is a class act. My husband and I visited the ranch June 9-11, 2012. The 3 days and 3 nights were spent amongst some of the most breathtaking terrain. The views from our cabin porch were amazing gazing out at the snow capped Grand Tetons mountain range what a sight to see. The diversity of the terrain is unique in each direction just gorgeous and so majestic. Upon our arrival we were kindly greeted by Amy the General Manager. She took the time to show us around and make us feel right at home, very friendly/courteous and always with a genuine smile. The owner Francesco greeted us each evening and took the time to ensure everyone's needs and expectations were met. Suzanne managed the dining/kitchen area and made sure our belly's were satisfied at all times. The food was amazing, "5-star" restaurant style. Each meal was served with fresh wholesome ingredients. Even the boxed lunches which we took with us on the trail rides were fresh and delicious. All of the ranch staff was friendly and accommodating at all times. The wranglers were fun, attentive and went out of their way to ensure everyone was having a good time. Bri (my wrangler) on the first day was a doll; she took the time to work with me in the arena to improve my trotting skills with Smokey. Smokey was my trail horse, he was energetic and a great ride. I enjoyed every moment of the time spent with him...and the staff...as well as all our new friends that we made with other guests at the ranch. Back to the trail rides, on the first ride we passed by a coyote on the hillside. The second day we saw an antelope chase a wolf pup back to its den. Neat stuff. The cabins were clean and the beds were comfy and equipped with nice pillows which made for a good nights sleep. Nicely decorated too. Words can not express what a delightful experience we had at the Goosewing Ranch. Can't wait to do this trip again. Next time we plan to stay at least 5 days.
