Horseback rides take guests through fields of grazing cattle and tree-lined trails with views of the Lake Pend Oreille and the Selkirk and Cabinet Mountains. At the ranch, a 70′ by 100′ indoor arena means even if it’s raining, guests can ride.

“I do think our ranch is a great fit for solo travelers or single women travelers,” writes Janice Schoonover, one of the ranch’s owners. “We offer adult only weeks in September, so that is a good time with no children at the ranch. We specialize in personalizing your ranch stay to fit you. You have special requests, just ask!”
