Western Pleasure Guest Ranch in northern Idaho welcomes families year-round. Families choose from one of the four hand-hewn log cabins at the ranch. Each cabin is authentically decorated and offers some of the coziest dude range cabins in the nation for Western adventure and comfort. Or, guests can choose Grandma or Grandpa’s room on the main level of the lodge or one of four suites on the second level of the lodge.

The ranch is located on 1,100 acres in the Selkirk and Cabinet Mountain Ranges. The spectacular and changing scenery of the seasons varies the activity from summer fun and family programming to fall horseback rides, winter Fat-bat bike rides in snow and spring ski and snowmobile packages—there is a bounty of outdoor activity at the lodge door. For horseback riding, there is an eight-year and above age limit. No fret, there’s plenty of other activity for members of the family.

Families meet in The Great Room for all meals that are served family-style in the off-seasons. There is an upstairs loft for additional relaxation, a recreation room, outdoor hot tub, basketball court, horseshoes, playground for the little ones and laundry facilities. What’s also unique about this guest dude ranch is the cabins can be booked and/or the lodge can be booked in the off-season without meals, or there are B&B offerings to choose from, a rarity in dude ranches.

An Excellent Guest Ranch Experience

by 589kenf

Western Pleasure provides and excellent guest ranch experience. The horses and tack are first rate and well matched to the rider's level of experience. The family and staff are knowledgeable, friendly, efficient and happy to comply with any reasonable request. A stay at WPGR is a memorable experience with something different every day. The dutch oven dinner and family music, outside in the beautiful Idaho countryside, was the highlight of the stay. We visited during an "adults only" week so can't comment on kids activities.

Wonderful Anniversary Celebration

by PeteTinaBR

My wife and I recently celebrated our anniversary at the Western Pleasure Guest Ranch and we couldn't have had a better time. Janice, Roley, their family and the entire staff made the visit a vacation to remember. The horseback riding was sensational. Do you want a more challenging ride? Just ask and they will arrange it. An easier ride? Just ask. They matched us perfectly to our horses (or was it the other way around?). The scenery was beautiful both from the front porch of the lodge and from the back of a horse. The food was delicious and the rooms were comfortable. The nightly entertainment, especially the Dutch oven dinner complete with music, was always a joy. Cattle sorting, evening lake cruise, swimming in the falls - memories to cherish.
