Spectacular location in the Grand Tetons, and only an hour away from Yellowstone. My wife and I had no horse riding experience, but learned quickly and had a great time on horseback (thanks to Rosie). Lots to do on and off ranch if you're not interested in the horse experience. Great hiking, biking, and kayaking/rafting close at hand. Rustic ranch feel, but very nice and comfortable cabin and lodge. Breakfast and dinner were very good / excellent - but bear in mind you are in a remote location so don't expect an extensive selection of entrees at dinner. Very nice spa. Take time to adjust to the altitude. Great wranglers and staff - thanks to Ryan, Ashley, Heather, Mason, Morgan and all the others (whose names escape me at the moment) that made our vacation so special. …
The menu is outstanding with many choices to suit any taste. Every meal we had was delicious. Actually, they were beyond delicious -- very fresh, super tasty, creative presentation, generous portions. Save room for dessert, as they were outstanding, too. Our servers were excellent, too. Plus, you can't beat the view of the Tetons from the beautiful dining room. All of our meals exceeded our expectations.
By far, the best vacation we've ever taken! We booked our stay to celebrate our 60th birthdays and 30th wedding anniversary. Everything at this ranch exceeded our expectations, from the lodgings to the meals, from the activities to the hospitality of our hosts and the entire staff. I simply can't find the words to express how amazing this ranch and resort is, and I write for a living!!! For many of the other guests there during adults week, this was their 5th - 15th time staying at the ranch. Now we know why! We want to come back again, budget permitting.
I went with 13 other family members, and we were treated with such warmth and graciousness. From the managers, to the wranglers, to the wait staff, everyone was genuinely friendly and accommodating. The wranglers were very patient as we worked on our riding skills, giving helpful hints along the way and making cheerful small talk. There are so many gorgeous trails to explore on the property--each one different from the next. My family came away with a newfound appreciation and love for riding. They made the experience positive from beginning to end. Overall, this was one of our top vacations.
We loved Lost Creek Ranch. We went with the intention to disconnect, relax and have fun. The setting, recreation activities, lodge accommodations, and meals exceeded our expectations. Most importantly, the people (wranglers, foodservice staff, and managers) were wonderful. Our family of five had never been on horses, so this was a real adventure for us. The wranglers were awesome, they were friendly, fun, instructive, patient, informative, intelligent, educated,…I could go on and on about them. It never occurred to us that this week would also expose our kids to such outstanding young people. We left extremely grateful for the time our kids had with them…role models for kids as they seek their own paths. Jack and Julie assembled a fine team this summer.
