The location, scenery and silence are perfect for the senses. The family and friends that meet all your needs are wonderful, warm and friendly. If you opt for breakfast, you'll be delighted. The cabins are built with huge logs, solid, snug, with fire place and wood, loft, and everything necessary to carry on....including an array of fun games. Privacy is... More

My boyfriend and I stayed in the Meadowview cabin at the Western Pleasure Guest Ranch while we were visiting northern Idaho and we immediately felt like we were at home. We were greeted by Janice and her dog Buster and made to feel like family right away. The location is private and extremely peaceful. Our cabin was well-appointed and tastefully... More

This far out place is spectacular for the individual decorations of the rooms. Some are cabins and we had a Women's retreat there and stayed in a cabin- the main lodge has rooms upstairs and downstairs. We had a club banquet there so I don't know how the normal food served there is you stayed individually. Sleigh rides in the... More

The Christmas offering of sleigh ride, dinner, and entertainment is a must. The sleigh ride is "authentic" and provides many "hallmark" moments. The food is substantive and "down home" good! The lodge environment offers an excellent venue for family and friends to gather and enjoy a sit down meal with plenty of opportunity to move about or play games. The... More

I was drawn to the Western Pleasure Guest Ranch for a unique dinner and concert experience. What I found at the Ranch was the opportunity to relax in what truly is a winter wonderland. The lodge was tastefully decorated for the Christmas holiday. They offer sleigh rides at the Ranch which adds to the winter experience during your stay. There... More

Recently enjoyed a snowy three night stay here. We arrived around midnight, the first night, and stayed in one of the lodge's upstairs rooms. I was awakened, in the morning, by someone walking up the adjacent stairs. (There are other rooms, though, not located so proximal to the stairs). The next two nights were spent in one of the cabins... More

We have wanted to stay here for awhile and the winter sleigh ride, dinner and show package, as well as overnight was perfect... Our entire experience was delightful, complete from the phone call to make the booking. We felt like family as did the other guests we met there...

We went for a sleigh ride with our family. There were 10 of us and the owners couldn't have been nicer! There was fresh fallen snow so we got kind of wet ... but had a lot of fun singing Christmas carols.

I had company from out if town and wanted a Christmas excursion to get us in the Christmas mood. Unfortunately, it didn't snow the previous days. We arrived at the beautiful ranch house where we were treated to coffee and hot cocoa in front of the fire waiting for our "sleigh ride". At our appointed time, we boarded a wagon... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Let the trail less traveled lead you to the Western Pleasure Guest Ranch where you can choose from a variety of lodging options. Accommodations are offered in the 10,000 square foot main lodge, hewn from local timber and offering six spacious guest rooms, each with private bath. If it is your own private log cabin in the woods you are looking for, well, we have three to choose from. Envision the quiet solitude of a modern rustic cabin to relax in after a day spent riding, skiing, hiking, snowmobiling or enjoying the stunning scenery of North Idaho! These cabins can accommodate up to six, yet are cozy enough for two, with a queen bed in the main bedroom, a loft sleeping area with a queen and two twins, furnished kitchen, and classic wood stove heat. ... more   less
