“Best vacation of my life”

Trip Advisor has been seeing such great guest reviews lately we thought we’d share:

 

“Best vacation of my life” – 5 Stars

This was more than just a vacation it was a wonderful experience. It took us totally out of our everyday lives. The food, accommodations, activities are awesome! The staff becomes family immediately. The scenery is spectacular. We are planning our trip for next year. Several friends have decided to go from seeing our pictures. If a dude ranch is on your bucket list this is the place to make it happen.

“Most Fantastic Trip of a Lifetime!”

This place is incredible! The scenery — the mountains and valleys — take your breath away. The staff is utterly terrific and attentive and quickly you feel like part of their family. The food is divine and with huge portions you’ll never go hungry. The cabins/houses have fully stocked kitchens w/beverages (incl. wine) and snacks at no extra cost. They also have free washers and dryers. Rooms have private bathrooms. We did everything from trail rides, barrel racing, cow sorting, cattle driving, fly fishing, skeet shooting, wild horse viewing…never a dull moment and always fun! Even went to a rodeo. You can do as much or as little as you want. There is no pressure. The wranglers were experienced, knowledgeable and attentive to the needs of every guest so that first time riders felt comfortable and secure. I would highly recommend The High Lonesome Dude Ranch to anyone looking for adventure and a great time. We’ll be back next year, and for many years to come, for sure!

“It could not have been any better!”

Our trip to High Lonesome was spectacular! We’ve never been to a ranch before and really didn’t know what to expect. From the moment we arrived we felt how special this place is and were warmly welcomed — even into the kitchen for the behind the scenes tour! The fishing was amazing for my husband and son. My son lives to fly fish and he couldn’t get enough—even with three grand slams! The riding was equally amazing and doing the cattle drive was a really cool experience. Our horses, Piggy and Comet, were terrific and perfectly paired for my daughter and me. The mountains, ponds, trails and pastures, really the entire ranch, are so beautiful. Most of all, we left feeling like we’d made wonderful new friends. And the food …the food was amazing. We loved how Paul, Scott, Marian, Jake, Jackie, Kelsey, Saskia, Amber, Maren and others joined us for meals so we got to know everyone well. Matt, Simon, Jet, Susanne and of course Aunt Linda prepared the most amazing meals — all very fresh and abundant! Every meal was the best meal we ever had. We will be talking about our week at High Lonesome for a very, very long time. We hope to return soon!
