“Because we are small, a single person doesn't get ‘lost in a crowd of couples’, especially if it’s a horse-crazy group (our favorites!). The women dump the guys (when they get whiny about butt pain) and all gravitate towards each other, forming a pack,” writes Ellen and Dan Morin, the ranch owners.
This guest ranch is wheelchair friendly, pet-friendly, bring-your-own-horse friendly–– welcoming all-around! Activities abound. In addition to horseback riding, fishing, mountain biking, rock climbing, river rafting and archery are just some of the activities to get your blood pumping and help you work off all the food you might like to eat. Guests rave about the meals and the homemade cookies provided to snack on throughout the day and night.

Single Supplement Lowdown:
In the fall, winter and spring, single travelers who have a suite to themselves pay a tad more than half of the couple rate. According to the ranch owners, “those who share a suite pay half the couple rate, as we define a couple as any two people who share a suite! Friends, buddies, mom and daughter, dad and son, etc.”
