Sarah and Sammie were the BEST guides! We were the FIRST rides of the summer season and these girls gave us quite a morning! Couldn't ask for a better experience! It was AMAZING!!! THANK YOU to Sarah and Sammie!
For our 25th wedding anniversary my husband and I checked “visit a dude ranch” off the list! An incredible week at Lone Mountain Ranch was everything and more we could have hoped for. Great accommodations, fabulous wranglers and horses, drop dead gorgeous scenery, and, oh, did I mention the food? Everything was amazing and every staff member was focused on keeping you comfortable and entertained. All you had to do was ask, and if they could, they provided it. We have travelled all over the world and this spot is at the top of our list. Would love to come back and bring our grandkids! Thank you, Lone Mountain!
