Spotted Horse Ranch
Reviewed July 24, 2013

My family and I went to the Spotted Horse Ranch for my dad's 60th birthday... we could not have enjoyed it more! The staff was fantastic - incredibly friendly and inviting. The cabins are adorable and cleaned every day. The horses were well behaved and the trail rides stunning. We did an overnight pack trip with two staffers that was absolutely fantastic. It's located directly on a beautiful river and truly relaxing.... I highly recommend it to anyone!!!

We just returned from another vacation at the Spotted Horse Ranch, just south of Jackson Hole, Wyoming. We have visited this ranch for many years now and it just wouldn't be summer without a week with Kevin the manager,(along with his lovely wife and two children) and his wonderful staff at the ranch.
This year, as we were on our porch our first day, having a glass of wine just before dinner, a tall beautiful woman wearing jeans and a cowboy hat came striding up to our cabin with a huge smile. That was Sally, one of the staff and we became good friends in minutes! The staff at the ranch couldn't be nicer and more fun! Everybody makes sure that your stay is perfect!
The horses are wonderful, not the usual "plodders" that you find at a "dude ranch". The rides are varied and so beautiful. This year we saw elk, moose, deer, sandhill cranes and a bear! The rides are custom, so the beginners can go on an easy ride, while the more experienced can ride high in the aspen tree meadows and explore new trails. My favorite ride is the all day ride where we stop for a bbq grilled lunch at the top of the mountain.
The rooms have all the amenities and the beds are amazingly comfortable. We meet some really nice people every summer, and they become friends whom we keep in touch with. This ranch is great for the young and the old. My mother is 88 and has enjoyed coming to the ranch for something like 10 years. This year she had trouble walking and right away, they constructed a ramp to the cabin so as to make it easier for her to get to and from her cabin with her walker. This is just the way they run this place; your comfort is their top priority.
The food is very good, and if one has allergies or dislikes, they will always take care of you and serve you what you like. The appetizers at happy hour are especially delicious!
The Hoback River runs along some of the cabins and if you haven't had a chance to fall asleep with the sound of the river running, it's time to go to the Spotted Horse Ranch!
Yellowstone is close by and we take a day to drive up to see all of the animals and sights there.
Don't forget to watch the horses run across the bridge after a days' ride, it's truly spectacular!
If you've been thinking of going to a dude ranch, I highly recommend the Spotted Horse Ranch!
We keep going back year after year and we are never disappointed! Each year it gets better and better! Thanks to everybody there, from Cheryl who cheerfully books our reservations to all of the wranglers who make sure your day on the horses is amazing, to the cleaning staff who make your room perfect when you return to the chefs who prepare the great meals and finally to Kevin who oversees the entire operation and makes sure everything is perfect! Thank you Spotted Horse Ranch! We will be back next summer!!

Room Tip: The cabins along the river are great, it's so peaceful to hear the sound of gently running water...

We stayed at the Spotted Horse for 3 nights in June and I've never enjoyed myself more ANYwhere! The staff here is beyond helpful and friendly. Our wrangler, Matt went out of his way to make our rides fantastic, taking us into beautiful areas of wilderness (some of it a bit challenging I have to say) in our quest to see the elusive moose that I was determined to find. No luck, but we ending up spotting a mama and her cub (yes, Moose!) outside of Big Sky, MT on our way home... yay! This place is just so fantastic... if you're considering a dude ranch experience look no further- superb location, warm /welcoming staff, great food and drink and just the best place on earth to spend a few days or an entire week. I only hope that we can go back some day. Thanks so much Kevin, Matt, Dan, Sally, Blair, and all or you who made our vacation so amazing!

We stayed at the Spotted Horse Ranch for three nights and it was a great experience. The staff was very friendly and went out of their way to make sure we had a good time. The horseback rides were a lot of fun, even for a non-rider like me. They usually lasted two to three hours and either went along the river or up in the hills. There was also a day long ride, with a cookout for lunch, that lasted five hours. There are a lot of things to do for the kids besides riding horses. They have horseshoes, ping pong and a pool table.They also have a stocked lake where you can fish. The cabins were very nice and the beds were comfortable. And it was great falling asleep listening to the river which was about 50 feet from the cabin. The food was very good. For breakfast we had pancakes, french toast, scrambled eggs, fresh fruit, bacon and different juices. Dinner included a steak cookout, a rib cookout, or chicken or pasta. The deserts were all homemade and were great. The size of the ranch is ideal since it only has room for 35 people so you get great personal attention.

I stayed as a single person on the spotted horse ranch in Jackson, wy. I had a wonderfull time! The staff was very friendly, always in for some small talk. The horseriding was an absolute non sceary activity for me as an inexperienced rider, the trails were beautiful.
The meals were great and always very tasty, with vegetables or fruit at every meal.
The cabins are cozy and clean, with a woodburning stove that kept it warm even when freezing at nights.
You can take a beautiful and easy hike alongside hoback river and wilsoncreek.
The town Jackson is a 30 minute drive away, with shops, galleries and nice restaurants.
Grand teton national park is 35 minutes from the ranch.

Room Tip: Ask for cabin alongside the river!

My husband and I only stayed one night at the ranch in August and it was the best experience of our trip. The staff is top notch. The cabins are older, but very clean and the beds are heavenly. We fell asleep listening to the river run outside our cabin. We also enjoyed cocktail hour on the gorgeous patio that overlooks the river. Dinner was family style and very good. Afterwards we played pool with our new friends in the main cabin. There is so much charm all around. The views are incredible and the property is in manicured shape. The city of Jackson is nearby so you can enjoy the best of everything in the area as well. If you are looking for a very simple, all inclusive experience you will like this ranch. There are no tvs in the cabins, but we didn't mind.

Room Tip: Our cabin was on the river and next to the stables. We loved sitting in the rocking chairs and watch...
