After scouring the internet for guest ranches Lazy L&B stood out (especially when recommended by our horsemanship instructor) as an excellent ranch. My twin sister & I had a wonderful time at the Lazy L&B. The scenery alone makes it a special destination, but that’s just the beginning. The property is located on a stunning stretch of Wyoming. We rode through varying landscapes of mountains, meadows, forests, rivers, and even onto a high mesa. Within these vast landscapes we rarely saw anyone except fellow guests – what a treat to experience secluded nature. Upon arrival we were met with the warmest hospitality by owners, Jason & Deb, who greeted us with fresh-baked cookies and smiles. The ranch’s rustic décor is charming and homey with lots of wood, stone, and opportunities to enjoy the landscape. The main house is where guests meet for communal meals & porch happy hours. The food was delicious & plentiful. We loved our cabin which featured a lovely porch & very comfortable beds. Since my sister & I recently finished horsemanship lessons, we were eager to try our skills. The wranglers were friendly, knowledgeable, and fun. They really took the time to get-to-know us while making sure we were happy and safe. Each ride built upon skills from the previous one. The horses were wonderful & a pleasure to ride. Even though some guests had never really ridden, we were all loping/cantering by the end of the week. Two separate guests had so much fun that they signed-up for another week! In addition to riding, the ranch offers activities such as hiking, fly fishing lessons, shooting, campfires, BBQs, and even a night of square-dancing in Dubois which was really fun. The whole ranch went – from the guests to the wranglers and staff. We had a great time dancing at a local bar which had fantastic atmosphere. By the end of the week, we felt like family. We bonded over adventurous rides, breath-taking landscapes, hearty meals (both in the cozy dining room and on forest picnics), and shared a few well-deserved drinks. I’ve had the pleasure of visiting other wonderful guest ranches, but Lazy LB still stands out as my favorite. I loved it so much, that I’m already planning nest year’s return trip.
