My husband and I enjoyed an “All Adult Week” at Red Rock Ranch. Located just outside Jackson Hole, Wyoming, we found the accommodations to be first-class. This family owned guest ranch left us wanting for nothing. There was something for everyone whether you wanted to ride horses, go fishing, relax with a book, enjoy the swimming pool and hot tub or ride a bike. The scenery is breathtaking and pictures do not do it justice. And in addition to your own picture-taking, Addie gave us a disk at the end of the week with pictures of everyone enjoying activities and the scenery. The horses were appropriate for all levels of riders. The trail rides were as personal as you desired or larger groups if you wanted. We had a chance to work with cattle, too. I, for one, appreciated the schedule and having a guest list in the cabin. It helped me keep a structured schedule and cued me on who the other guests were and where they were from. Thank you! So, as well as there was a schedule, it was flexible.
The cabins were neatly modern but portrayed a great rustic, western charm.
Massages were available for an additional cost one day.
The gift shop held a nice variety of merchandise.
We enjoyed the cocktails and appetizers in the Cross Bench Saloon each evening. It was a nice benefit that beer and wine were included in the “all inclusive price”; however, one could BYOB if they wanted something else. Happy Hour was a great time to socialize, recap the day’s events and talk about the plans for the next day. And the meals!! The food was terrific from the simple to the fancy. With a chef and sous chef in the kitchen and Addie’s baking, there was an endless supply of superb food.
My husband enjoyed the horseback riding and fly fishing. I enjoyed the horseback riding and relaxing in the cabin. I was grateful for the internet access but did not miss cell phone coverage or televisions. We had a New York Times printout at our breakfast tables each morning.
All the employees were friendly, easy to visit with and obviously enjoyed their responsibilities. Safety was uppermost in everyone’s mind and we appreciated that. We found the first night get-together a great time to meet the staff and other guests and the riding orientation on Monday morning to be advantageous and the last night “closing” was a great way to conclude the week.
My husband and I highly recommend the Red Rock Ranch to anyone considering a Dude Ranch experience. They know how to cater to children, as well as adults, with a focus on either or both. Families will love it and no one will be disappointed. It is an excellent value for the money.
