We went to stay overnight at the Western Pleasure Guest Ranch near Sandpoint, ID and were struck by the beauty of the place and the comfortable, western themed accomodations. Although we stayed in the large, beautiful main lodge, upstairs, they do have about 5 cabins on the property that we would like to try next time. Our stay did not include dinner, but it did include a hot breakfast, which was tasty and plentiful. Since it is located rather remotely from town, we decided to stop and bring some picnic stuff, such as cheeses, breads, crackers, fruit, cookies and of course wine!! to have for our dinner, rather than drive back into town. WE sat out on the front porch and enjoyed the views while we snacked. The owner provided us with wine glasses and plates etc. for our picnic, so that made it easy.
They have about 40 horses available for trail rides, which we did not partake in this time. We are both horse people, but the price of $55 per person to ride was a little more than we wanted to spend at that time, but perhaps next time we will, as there is some beautiful country to ride through in that area. In the lodge there is a rec room downstairs, which had a pool table, so we played several games of pool, and there was a large screen TV with movies you could watch, and upstairs was a checkers table set up, so we enjoyed several games of checkers too. All in all, we would definately recommend this ranch for a nice, different get away, some peace and quiet and to get closer to nature, which is always good for the soul!
