Moose Head Ranch
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 21 December 2010

One of the most breathtaking views in the entire world...right in your own back yard (literally!). OK, so we hesitated a bit because it was an investment...but boy, did that investment yield an exponential return. The amenities: outstanding. Privacy: sublime. Activities: endless and fun. From horseback rides through the mountains and across the streams, guided fishing in the beautiful Snake River, relaxing (or challenging) hikes through wildflower-covered meadows to the spacious and fully stocked private cottages that look out over the spectacular Teton Mountain Range, 5-star dining, and impeccable service, Moose Head Ranch is a rare treasure.

Kit and Louise Davenport are the consummate hosts. You will not require ANYTHING that they cannot provide. Once you arrive at the ranch, you don't need a cent, and you don't need to leave. However, do you want to take off to sightsee, fish, or hike for the day? You'll find an incredible picnic lunch waiting for you before you go. Need help planning your day? Kit and Louise will make recommendations and reservations so you don't have to lift a finger. Flying in to Jackson Hole and needing a vehicle for the week? Never fear. Louise handles it all.

The Moose Head staff is the best of the best. Quiet and behind the scenes when necessary, the staff leaders and group of well-trained young adults take the reins (literally) when leading your group on a horseback adventure or leading the group singalong at the campfire cookout. These young people are the "best of the best," recruited nationwide and thoroughly screened to ensure that the cream of the crop is serving the Moose Head clientele.

Would we go back? Without a doubt. Would we recommend Moose Head to friends? Can't keep our mouths shut about it. Perfect for honeymooners, families, or couples (my husband and I went by ourselves), it's ideal for everyone.

The best deal...the single best location and view in the Jackson Hole community...the best staff. A rare gem--Moose Head Ranch is the place to make memories.

This summer was our second trip to Moose Head Ranch. If you want to really experience the Teton Mountain range this is the way to go. Many of our group preferred to take horseback trips so we did that every day. We also had some new riders and Louise and her staff made sure they were comfortable the horse that they rode on a trail that fit their skill level. If you only want to ride for a few days and tour other sites, Louise can guide you on all the many other site seeing activities available. Kit is available for fly fishing instruction and can set you up on a fly fishing expedition. Raft rides are available on the Snake river. We took a scenic float trip and saw bald eagles (and their nest). and floated right past a Moose, grazing in the marshes. The food and cabins at Moose Head are perfect. Clean fresh air and a mountain stream gurgling past. An excellent menu to sustain you through your daily activities. Games and activites each night by the staff or you can just sit and watch the sun set over gorgeous mountains. A trip to Jackson Hole is always fun so don't miss that.

I've been visiting this ranch for over 20 years, and each year it continues to impress me. The cabins, though rustic, are very comfortable and charming. There is running water and electricity, but no TVs. But with the views they have of the Tetons, who needs one! The food is spectacular. Their chef prepares three different entrees each night for all different types of tastes. There's even a kid option if your young ones don't want to try the decadent lamb shank. There are a myriad of things to do, but the horseback riding is a Ranch favorite. There is a deep tradition in this ranch that comes through in the people that run it. From the head wrangler Dave who looks like he popped right out of a Marlboro add (minus the cigs), to the owners Kit and Louise who have been part of the ranch of their entire life, there is such great hospitality. This is one of the few true western experiences left. It's real, it's deluxe, and it's what I dream about. Go!

the memories this place brings back .. the stories we could tell .. we spent the better part of a year living and working in the jackson area including staying at this ranch .. yes, it was a long, long time ago, but it was without a doubt... thee best little dude ranch in the overall jackson hole valley .. we long to return to this place that we considered the closest to heaven you will ever get without actually going there .. my friends, let me assure you .. until youve been there, you havent lived .. sure we could go on and on, but it would only sound like a cross between fictional story and a paid advertisement for the moose head ranch .. so dont take my word , huh .. go and experience this ranch and the valley for yourself, eh .. enjoy, ron lightfoot .. hamilton, ontario, canada .. lyteft@mountaincable.net

We have been to Moose Head Ranch for a week each of the past 8 or 10 years and we have a hard time considering going somewhere else. The staff is just perfect- the ranch is only open for about two months and the cabin girls and wranglers are usually terrific, fun college kids who know this is the best summer job they could ever get. The owners are always there and know everything there is to do in WY, and it's a pleasant place to just read and watch the scenery. The man in charge of the horses is a true WY born rancher and is a treasure trove of information. Yes, the cabins are rustic but we love them- that's WY to us. The food is great, particularly breakfast. GO!
