“We LOVED it !!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 3, 2011

Wonderful is the word used to describe the 7D Ranch. As a past employee of the ranch from 21 years ago.....it was great to see that the current managers, Meade & Andrea Dominick take the same pride and care with the property, guests and staff as his father did. This is a great place to spend quality time with friends and family. Share the wonderful food, great staff and beautiful views. Everything is clean and well taken care of. Fishing, Hiking, horseback riding and lots of fun evening activities! Certainly well worth it!! Hope you enjoy your trip as much as we did!!

1. The owners and managers are superb.
2. The emphasis on horse safety is excellent - - and the horses are very well cared for.
3. The mountains are close, so the views are "Oh my gosh!!!"
4. The staff is focused on providing guests with a wonderful experience.
5. The cabins are charming.
6. Extremely varied terrain, providing diverse rides and hikes.

Overall, our favorite ranch, by far (and we've been to five).

I could wax philosophical about how absurdly beautiful the Sunlight Basin is; how superb the owners and staff are; how great the cabins and grounds are; how fantastic the fishing, riding and activities are; and how tasty to food is, but my words wouldn't pay due homage to the 7D. Simply put, this was the most fantastic vacation my family has ever taken. If you are considering a dude ranch anywhere, you owe it to yourself to take a good, hard look at the 7D Ranch. We're certainly looking forward to multiple return visits. Thanks to Andrea, Meade and the wonderful staff - you're the best!

Can't recommend this place enough. In a time in which families struggle to spend enough quality time together, the 7D Ranch and their handpicked staff offer a solution above any Cruise or trip to the all inclusive in Florida or Mexico.
Best aspects: space available for a group to spend time together without the distraction of home life, engaging activities and staff for all ages, as much or little as you like, scenery and wilderness that would knock your socks off, charming individual accomodations that gives everyone their space, eating mouth watering meals with all the guests from all over the US. This outfit offers high quality country hospitality with intelligence, integrity and professionalism.

This was our second year at the 7D ranch. We could not image that the second time could be better than our perfect first year, but it was. We came for a family reunion, a group of 13 ranging in age from 5 to 78. Andrea and Meade all all the staff really do everything they can to make the stay as fun and comfortable as possible.We loved the rides in the spectactular Sunlight Basin. We had amazing views on every ride. The horses were great, even for us novice riders. So many fun activites for everyone: hiking with the staff, trap shooting, fishing, activities for kids every night too. With the two 5 year olds, the staff were very helpful in babysitting them so the adults and older kids could go on rides. They loved everyone who watched them and were able to get lead rides on the ponies too. The food was great. Hearty but healthy and fresh. Many options at everymeal too. We all agreed that we can't wait for our 3rd trip to the 7D.

Room Tip: The cabins are comfortable, and cozy. Ours had a skylight over the bed.

This was our first dude ranch experience. The 7D is, quite simply, fabulous. The cabiins are very comfortable, cozy and, most importantly, clean. The staff are incredibly friendly and accommodating, and there is no reasonable request that isn't met with a smile and a friendly "Absolutely!" Our children (14 and 11) loved every minute of this experience. Apart from the many different trail rides offering spectacular views of the Sunlight Basin, there are beautiful hikes, great fishing and fun evening activities. Corral Boss Jeff gives an amazing horse training demonstration; Meade and Tom showed us how to shoe a horse; the Wikki-up (Indian sweat lodge followed by river dip) was crazy fun, and the Saturday night cowboy singer was wonderful. And, let's not forget the food! No weenies & beanies here. Chicken Marsala, Baked Cod with gnocchi, Boeuf Bourgignon, etc. But most important, the warmth of the welcome and the graciousness of 7D managers Meade and Andrea Dominick make this one special, magical place. You simply can't go wrong.

This was our first visit to 7D and it was excellent. The staff is top notch! I reasearched ranches in Wyoming for several months prior to deciding on the 7D. We arrived late on Sunday and were promptly greeted by 4 staff members who helped us to unload our car and answer any questions we had. Monday morning we had breakfast and riders were matched to their horses. Riding was offered everyday, except Thursday when it is horses rest day. The views in the Sunlight Basin are amazing! There are no better views and we drove all over Wyoming on this trip! I also went fly fishing for the first time after the casting clinic. We have two children (9 and 10) who were in very capable hands with the children's wranglers. They rode, explored caves, played in the streams, made tie dye and had boat races in the stream on the ranch. My children made new friends and loved the ranch they are ready to go back. A staff member also drove us to the Cody Night Rodeo in Cody! It was fun! The food was spectacular. Many ranches tout gourmet food, there is no better food than on the 7D. Everything was delicious! I highly recommend the 7D. My only fear is that everyone will go and there won't be room for me next year.... I had no problems getting onto the wireless in the main lodge. But leave the computer at home and get back to good family fun at 7D!

Room Tip: Cabins are available dependent on the number of guests. Talk to the staff for help.
