Imagine lying in the woods on a far off mountain top: smelling the pine-scented air, listening to the crickets, and catching the final rays of summer on your face overlooking Idaho from a far off peak. What a week it’s been at the ranch, the world has melted away. You’ll be headed back on your trusted horse soon; you can almost feel the hot tub and taste the chilled glass of Chardonnay. Outdoor adventures, massages, homemade desserts, and close friends have filled your week. It’s been full of great conversations, boot stompin’ evening entertainment, side-splitting laughs, and gracious hospitality. It’s been a vacation to remember and you can’t wait to do it all again. We here it over and over again, “I needed this!” and to be honest, the Girl’s Getaway week keeps getting better and better. It’s been a week of laughter, healing, sharing, and spectacular adventure and relaxation. Come alone or with your friends or family, you’re gauranteed to have a week filled with memories.
Everything you’ll need to enjoy a full week ranch vacation is here. Rustic luxury accommodations, chef prepared meals, horseback riding, a wealth of other outdoor guided adventures, a long list of other amenities including evening entertainment, cocktail hour, non-guided adventures, long distance phone calls, and wireless internet in the main lodge!
Throughout the week, you’ll have the opportunity to choose from any of the outdoor adventures we have in store for everyone. Massages, horseback riding, fitness hikes, kayaking, sporting clays, bike tours, and more! You’ll need the entire week to fit it all in, but don’t forget, relaxing with a good book is also highly recommended. Every evening has something fun planned from campfires to evenings in our old west saloon. We’ll have beautifully crafted 5 Course Dinners paired with some of our favorite wines, and all-day rides to some of the nearby peaks. It’ll be a week to remember!
From advanced to beginner horseback riders, our week is going to be filled with lots of riding. After our orientation ride on Monday, there are advanced, scenic, and all-day rides scheduled throughout the week. You’ll also able to take advantage of learning from some of the wranglers by taking a lesson. One of our past guests suggests bringing a pair of bicycle shorts to go under your jeans to save your bum. If you don’t have boots, we do have boots you can wear but slick soles are a must. You should also make sure to have a few pairs of jeans, a pair of shorts, or something you can get wet in for the kayaking trips, boat tours, and bike rides. Some ladies bring a pair of leather gloves with them to ride with. We recommend this highly. A pair of tennis shoes or running shoes are also very handy.
We have a saying in Idaho during the fall. If you don’t like the weather, wait a few minutes. This is about the week every year where the trees begin to change color and it is absolutely breathtaking. Plan on evenings being chilly, a good fleece jacket will no doubt be very useful. Rain is possible but don’t worry about that stopping the horseback riding. The barn has a number of full length slickers to fit you.
Our chefs are going to make it very difficult to shed pounds while you’ll be here. Daily baked breads, fresh salads and fruits, homemade desserts, and more. Some decide to get a little dressed up during our Wine Dinner. Don’t have to though, a pair of jeans and boots are regular attire on the ranch. This will be an exciting and fun evening! For those ladies that have food likes or dislikes (and the likes are just as important), don’t forget to fill out your activity forms and tell us. Gluten free, vegetarians, etc are all welcomed!
Unless you’re planning to go elsewhere during your vacation, we suggest just taking the shuttle from the Spokane International Airport. Once you have arranged your flights, just come back to our website, fill out the shuttle form, and you’re all set. If you’ll be driving into the ranch, check our website for the best directions. The only thing you want to watch out for is the navigational gps units pointing towards forest service roads or away from the main highway as you near the ranch.
If your daughter is 11 or older, we highly recommend she joins you and YES! this is a perfect week. During the Girl’s Getaway Week we just don’t have our Kids’ Program offered for those younger. You both will have a wonderful time and enjoy all the activities together!
Yes. More than likely if you’re making your reservations early, we’ll easily be able to put you all in your own cabin together.
