Western Pleasure Guest Ranch


These days, it seems the image of hard-working folks is vanishing. The thoughts of strong-backed ranchers taming horses and managing livestock has gone by, and the strong family values that united the country have since vanished. People who think that way have not been to the Western Pleasure Guest Ranch
          When you first drive in to the ranch, you’ll notice the stiff wood exterior of the main lodge. The spectacular hardwood beams will fill you with awe. You’ll notice barns and horse corrals bustling with activity. Turn off your phone and put on your cowboy hat, you’ve entered a different world. The spirit of the Wild West is alive and well at Western Pleasures, and you’ll experience it first hand as part of your stay.
          If you like riding long and hard, the horses at Western Pleasure are ready for you! The summer months are filled with horseback rides around the ranch. Spectacular mountain views, serene meadows, and tranquil creeks are just a few of the scenic delights to see at Western Pleasure. If you’re a riding virgin, have no fear! The horses at Western Pleasure are perfect for beginners! If horses aren’t you cup of tea, there’s plenty of other fun activities available at the ranch.
         The accommodations at Western Pleasure is like no other! The ranch has four private log cabins available, as well as the main lodge, which boasts several spectacular rooms that you'll be sure to enjoy! The decor calls back to the days of the Wild West, and you'll be filled with satisfaction on their cozy beds after a long day of riding. 
          When the snow falls, Western Pleasures becomes a winter wonderland! The ranch gets blanketed with a layer or beautiful white snow, turning it into a chilly paradise! Sleigh rides, cross country skiing, and snowshoeing are just a few of the exciting winter activities available at Western Pleasures.
          The fully-functioning ranch has been consistently ranked high on industry lists, and their position is always considered on top in the dude ranch world. The strong family values that have kept the ranch operating for decades is evident. The work ethic and the positive attitudes of the generations of family members that call the ranch their home will bring a smile to your face, and you'll walk away from Western Pleasures with a different outlook on life. A full history of the family behind the ranch is available on their website.

Second Winter


         It’s a cold one in North Idaho today! The mercury has been dipping down into the single digits, and the snow and ice has made its way back into our lives. Winter has made a comeback, and we at the North Idaho Bed and Breakfast Association are in love with it.
        Some folks just can’t wait for the snow and ice to melt and the sunshine to return. But some of us are already excited for next winter as well. Powder junkies on top of Schweitzer Mountain or Lookout Pass rejoice when the thermometer goes lower, and the weatherman reports snow, and our inns become the base camp for happy skiers and snowboarders who need a warm, relaxing place to sleep and eat after a long day of hitting the slopes.

          The many hiking trails in our area are covered in a thick layer of white snow, making them the perfect place for a brisk, peaceful hike. You just might have the whole forest to yourself if you head out on a cold, snowy morning! Sit back with a thermos full of tea or hot chocolate and enjoy the sound of a babbling brook alongside the snow-covered banks. A winter snow hike can be extremely refreshing and exciting!
          As February fades away into March, the snow will soon melt and the temperatures will rise. If you were thinking about enjoying all the beauty North Idaho in the winter has to offer, now is your chance! Browse our bed and breakfasts, book a night or two, grab those skis, snowshoes, and warm clothes and get out there and explore!
