Quilting Retreat!!! This was our 5th year at Western Pleasure Guest Ranch. 3 nights in the Lodge and Cabins, all our meals prepared by Shelley, gourmet! So much fun to get there, set up our machines and not have to think about anything else! Janice and her husband are so accommodating and are nearly family to our group. This is...

If you love horses, magnificent scenery and sumptuous comfort food with desert at every meal, you should definitely visit Western Pleasure Guest Ranch. We have been to other ranches and thoroughly enjoyed them, but this was by far the best. The atmosphere is warm and friendly. The owners and staff truly go out of their way to fulfill your every...

We had been here a few years ago for a daytime sleigh ride and it was fabulous. This time we came for an evening sleigh ride, dinner, concert, and stayover. OMG - it was incredible. The food was awesome and the band (Bridges Home) was really great. We had such a relaxing time that we hated to leave. WPGR is...

Went for Sleigh ride, dinner and a concert. Everything was exceptional. Food was great, the staff was all about customer satisfaction. Will be doing this again often. You start with a half hour sleeigh ride, and then go inside by the fire to warm up with coffee, hot Apple cider or hot chocolate. The ambiance is warm and friendly.

This is the second time I've been here for a sleigh ride. This time it was in the evening with dinner and music following the ride. The grounds are amazingly picturesque! The lodge is beautiful! It was still decorated with lights from the holidays. Wish I lived here :-) The food was terrific. Didn't think there would be much for...

We came in the morning and paid each about $10 to ski for the day. Staff gave us a map and briefed us on which way to go around the loops and to watch for horse-drawn sleighs. Scenery was great, grooming was excellent, not a lot of people. Good for classic or skating. The upper loop was for multi-purpose including...

This was our 3rd time of visiting Western Pleasure Guest Ranch. My wife and I had a great stay in the Meadowview Cabin. The sleigh ride, dinner and music were all wonderful.

We stayed in the settler cabin for four days. Our family of five was close but comfortable in the cabin. Very quaint decorations along with a simple, functional layout. We cooked for ourselves and the cabin is well outfitted for light meal prep. The Schoonover's have a terrific operation going on up at Western Pleasure. We appreciated the access to...

It was so nice to have you stay at the ranch last week to experience some great family time. We appreciate your conveying thoughts with fellow visitors who hopefully might be our future satisfied customers as well. As you probably realize, consumer reviews are the number one determinant for influencing other consumers. Thanks and thanks again for your patronage.

Beautiful facilities, lovely people, awesome food, warm fireplace and scenic sleigh ride. So relaxing. We want to ruturn for a bridal shower in February. The ranch is 7th generation family owned. We will definitely return next year.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Let the trail less traveled lead you to the Western Pleasure Guest Ranch where you can choose from a variety of lodging options. Accommodations are offered in the 10,000 square foot main lodge, hewn from local timber and offering six spacious guest rooms, each with private bath. If it is your own private log cabin in the woods you are looking for, well, we have three to choose from. Envision the quiet solitude of a modern rustic cabin to relax in after a day spent riding, skiing, hiking, snowmobiling or enjoying the stunning scenery of North Idaho! These cabins can accommodate up to six, yet are cozy enough for two, with a queen bed in the main bedroom, a loft sleeping area with a queen and two twins, furnished kitchen, and classic wood stove heat. ... more   less
