The Christmas offering of sleigh ride, dinner, and entertainment is a must. The sleigh ride is "authentic" and provides many "hallmark" moments. The food is substantive and "down home" good! The lodge environment offers an excellent venue for family and friends to gather and enjoy a sit down meal with plenty of opportunity to move about or play games. The... More

I was drawn to the Western Pleasure Guest Ranch for a unique dinner and concert experience. What I found at the Ranch was the opportunity to relax in what truly is a winter wonderland. The lodge was tastefully decorated for the Christmas holiday. They offer sleigh rides at the Ranch which adds to the winter experience during your stay. There... More

Recently enjoyed a snowy three night stay here. We arrived around midnight, the first night, and stayed in one of the lodge's upstairs rooms. I was awakened, in the morning, by someone walking up the adjacent stairs. (There are other rooms, though, not located so proximal to the stairs). The next two nights were spent in one of the cabins... More

We have wanted to stay here for awhile and the winter sleigh ride, dinner and show package, as well as overnight was perfect...

We went for a sleigh ride with our family. There were 10 of us and the owners couldn't have been nicer! There was fresh fallen snow so we got kind of wet ... but had a lot of fun singing Christmas carols.

I had company from out if town and wanted a Christmas excursion to get us in the Christmas mood. Unfortunately, it didn't snow the previous days. We arrived at the beautiful ranch house where we were treated to coffee and hot cocoa in front of the fire waiting for our "sleigh ride". At our appointed time, we boarded a wagon... More

It said on the website that they did bed and breakfast. We weren't offered breakfast, or shown around, or made to feel at all welcome. The chairs were all up on the tables in the restaurant at breakfast-time and we felt as if we were intruding whenever we went near the main hotel. The website offered hot tubs and campfires,...

Thank you for bringing this issue to my attention. I am sorry we did not meet your expectations. One of things that our guests comment on the most is how welcome and at home they feel at the ranch so I am very discouraged that that is the thing that you missed during your stay.

The ultimate cabin in the woods. Easy to get to, about 15 miles from town. The dog took us for a walk and seemed to know the paths we wanted to take. He also coaxed us to start a fire by bringing kindling to the wood stove. We also had a light snow which just made our stay all to... More

My family and I love going to Western Pleasures in the winter where you can really go on an 'old fashioned' horse drawn sleigh ride. You start out in the 30,000 square foot custom log lodge, grab some large, wool blankets and then head out to the sleigh. We've done day rides, but the last couple of years have done... More

We recently spent four nights at the ranch in one of the beautiful cabins. Traveling in the shoulder season meant that activities like hayrides, bonfires, etc. weren't available, which was fine with us. We loved the peace and quiet.

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
