#1 of 3 B&Bs / Inns in Swan Valley
The Hansen Guest Ranch is located along the banks of Rainey Creek and offers western-style accommodations in one and two-bedroom suites, cabins and cottages. Start off each morning with a full sit-down breakfast and then venture off to the river or the trails for an outstanding day of recreation and adventure. For visitors who want to explore outside the Swan Valley area, Jackson Hole is only 43 miles away and the west and south entrances to Yellowstone National Park are 90 miles from the ranch. Championship golf courses are just 19 miles up the hill in the communities of Victor and Driggs, and if you want to enjoy a day at the hot springs, Heise is just down the road. Guests also are welcome just to hang out here at the ranch to read and relax in the hammock or play tennis and croquet or throw horseshoes. A full outdoor cooking area, including a fire pit, oven, range, BBQ grills and smokers, is available for your use for lunches and dinners, too.

Coming from southern California, I wanted to see exactly what winter conditions were like in Swan Valley, and was surprised as to how mild the temperatures were for late February. A neighbor had X-country ski gear for me to borrow and snow shoes also were available at the ranch. Brought silks, mittens, thermals and boots and actually was quite comfortable. Accommodations were excellent and individual temperature controls allowed me to set the heat to a comfortable setting for day as well as night time.

A very nice experience. Professional staff and owners but still friendly and attentive. The rooms are nicely appointed and the grounds are well maintained and attractive. Wonderful breakfast. If you fly fish they can set you up with guides and arrange for a day on the South Fork. An excellent value.

My wife and I revisited Hansen Guest Ranch in September of 2018 and enjoyed the hospital of the owners Ann and Jim Walsh. The scenery is beautiful and so relaxing and the breakfast cooked by the host is outstanding with new offerings each morning. I have never tasted better grits. The rooms in the old barn are our favorite, so beautifully decorated and super clean. There is plenty to do in the area from fishing to hiking and horse back riding. But what we enjoy the most is the feeling of serenity the Guest Ranch inspires. We are booking again in 2019.

The owners were very pleasant and it was a truly wonderful place to stay. You could feel the love and care they have put into their home away from home. The surrounding area was close to many activities and just a short ride to the Snake River.

Stayed in a downstairs suite in the barn with a wonderful upper floor. The hosts, Ann and Tom, truly care about your stay. As has been said many times, the breakfasts are great. We were visiting the two national parks, so for that reason I would not give it five stars, as it is 2 1/2 hours to Yellowstone. If you can't get or afford lodging in the Park, then this is the place.
