Family Vacation

In the world of family vacation, the options are limitless. From cruises to ski resorts and theme parks to national parks, your choices are many and varied. So why choose a guest ranch vacation? What does a guest ranch have to offer a family?

Escape, explore and experience the beauty and wonder of the outdoors.  Escape on a family vacation at Western Pleasure Guest Ranch where families have the unique opportunity to disconnect from the distractions and busyness of everyday life and reconnect as a family.  Explore the ranch’s 1100 acres situated in the foothills of the Cabinet Mountain Range. Experience the spirit of the west as a family while you ride, bike and hike the meadows, trails and mountains of North Idaho.

The Youth Horsemanship program at the ranch provides a hands on horse centered experience for children visiting the ranch. Children are assigned their own horse for the week to ride and care for. They learn horse husbandry skills and equipment care. Every morning children will help prepare their horse for the day’s activities. Daily horsemanship instruction will include arena lessons and games, trail riding and cattle sorting. The week is concluded with a children’s horse show where they get to show off the horsemanship skills they have learned with arena games and awards.

A guest ranch vacation is a perfect for multi generational family travel because of the numerous activity choices. You are not limited to only horseback riding. Ranch activities include 3D Archery, Mountain Biking, Hiking, Wagon Rides, Clay Pigeon Shooting, Dutch Oven Cookout, Dinner Ride and a Dinner Cruise on Lake Pend Oreille. The ranch library offers the reader a great supply of western literature while the covered decks of the log lodge are a relaxing outdoor retreat.  The large lawn offers room for the little ones to run, a basket ball court, horse shoe pits, playground and a fire pit for gathering around an evening campfire. Or, take the day to explore Lake Pend Oreille and the downtown shopping of Sandpoint, Idaho.

An All Inclusive Guest Ranch Vacation is just that; all inclusive. Your lodging, three daily meals, horseback riding and daily activities are included in your package.  Arrive at the ranch and relax. No more planning, scheduling, paying and organizing. You get to enjoy your  family without the stress of planning your daily activity schedule.

At Western Pleasure Guest Ranch, experience the spirit of the west and explore the beauty of the outdoors on an All Inclusive, family, guest ranch adventure. The warm, western hospitality, country gourmet dining, and the beauty of Idaho’s wilderness will set this vacation apart in the world of family travel.  Your guest ranch stay is not just a vacation, but an authentic western experience with memories that last a lifetime.
