Reviewed 15 September 2016 via mobile

We had an amazing time riding horses in the mountains at Blackwater Creek Ranch! We had a great guide named Kristina. She took care of us. She was very nice and friendly. She brought us back early when our City Slicker behinds couldn't handle the full 2.5hr ride that we wanted. They even refunded some of our money. I highly recommend! We will be back and hope to stay for a week!

Beautiful trails and views! Loved it

Would discourage you from staying here! The pictures and descriptions on their website are not even remotely close to the cabins! The cabin we stayed in was a "trapper shack," it did have running water however. The cabin itself was blazing hot during the day as there is no air conditioning and got quite cold at night. There were bugs all over, the sheets and pillowcases were dirty and the furniture was dusty! Upon opening the windows we quickly realized where all the dirt and bugs were coming from. There is no cell phone reception and no wifi. The woman owner was NOT even remotely friendly or welcoming in fact it was if we were annoying her by checking in and asking questions! The husband/wife managers I think we awesome! Super friendly and very helpful we suggest the owner take a lesson from them on her people and social skills! As I stated above, I would not suggest to anyone to stay here! And WAY overpriced for the nasty accommodations! I bet it leaks when it rains, check out the roof!

Blackwater was awesome and the staff were great! They were very helpful with information, went out of their way to help the kids enjoy their time and the horses are great for kids to ride with reasonable riding rates. The cabins were very clean and cozy. Just what we wanted in a rustic & real mountain experience.

Whilst you may consider the accommodation to be a little rustic, don't be fooled, the beds are comfy and the showers are hot. We stayed here for a couple of nights during our fly drive holiday and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and packed plenty in, making use of the pool, going on a horseback trail with the Wranglers and going into Cody to see the nighttime rodeo. Dianne and Johnnie were extremely helpful, as were their staff, and the food was delicious and plentiful.

We knew it was between Cody and Yellowstone with no Wi-Fi, Our kids had to talk and communicate without their phones. What a nice peacefully time we had.
We had plenty to do. I talked with Diana before hand and had an agenda already set. Her husband - Johnie. took us all day ( from 6am-6pm ) driving thru Yellowstone to view the wild life and attractions.
We didn't miss a thing other than not seeing moose. It was a great trip and one the family won't forget, Day 2 was going white river rafting in Cody, which the trip was called short because a guy was jumping off the main street bridge with a bomb attached to him. Oh well. It was a pretty tame river. Day 3 was going on horseback riding, we were planning an a 2 hour trip with lunch at the top of a mountain, which sounded cool , but again it was called short because the day before the guides ran into a grizzled and her cubs on their trail up to the place we were going and also it was raining and the trail was a bit slippery for the horses. It was a nice ride even thou it was an hour. The 2 guides were awesome with plenty of knowledge of the area.
The food was better here than in Cody. The lodge was spacious and a place to unwind with a bar as well. There is a small pool and hot tub by the lodge. I think they should use the grill on the deck more for serving burgers steaks etc... it is the outdoors... All the staff work hard to please you and always have a smile. It was a place I'd go back to in a heart beat. Great job Diana and Johnie.
