Adventure & Relaxation
During our late summer and fall adult weeks at Red Horse Mountain Ranch, you’ll be delighted with chef prepared meals, enjoy a wide range of guided adventure, have your own horse and saddle for the week, and be plushfully tucked away each night in an authentic log cabin on a distant mountain in the middle of Idaho.
Our late summer and fall adult weeks are perfect for singles, couples, friends, or families with older kids. Each evening the lodge will be filled with conversation and a festive atmosphere while you enjoy the stars and evenings at the ranch. As the night progresses, enjoy our evening entertainment programs, just sit back and relax or just soak in a hot tub under the stars. In the evening, retire to your private suites with European bedding, down comforters, and rustic appeal. Awake to fog rolling throughout our valley while the horses search out the first beams of the day’s light.
We continue with the full schedule of ranch activities: horseback riding, kayaking, archery, sporting clays, challenge course, and many others will be available to you. However, Red Horse Mountain Ranch provides plenty of opportunity for a simple bit of R & R as well. Enjoy a massage from our licensed massage therapist, curl up with a book in our library, or simply sit on the deck overlooking the ranch.
For years Red Horse Mountain Ranch has been well known for its Kids Program, amazing family adventures, and a week at the ranch full of energy and excitement. As the colors change with the season, the ranch becomes quiet and serene, taking on a completely different feel. The foothills of the Rockies begin to turn shades of red and yellow, spectacular in their own right. You’ll be blessed with gorgeous scenery and the simple hospitality of a premier Idaho dude ranch, chorused by nearby elk and local campfire cowboys.

We’re not just All-Inclusive, We’re All In…
The ranch becomes a place for couples to escape the daily regiments of technology and the hustle and bustle of life in the 21st century. As Charlie, one of our guests in the early seasons, once put it, “You can be as busy as you want or just simply sit and read a book. I like both.” Imagine having a place where the people are “all-in”, making sure you have the best stay. We do it because this is our home, and whether you come again or not, we want to make sure our ranch is a place that brings a smile every time you think of it. Check out the reviews. This is how we do things.
What’s Included in our Fall Weeks at the Ranch?
A more appropriate title would be what isn’t included. Besides everything listed below, there are some great souvenirs in our trading post store, the massage services, the “off ranch” guided fly fishing trip, fishing licenses, and your transportation to the ranch (which we can take care of too). Otherwise – it’s all included:
Guided Adventures and Horseback Riding
Each day on the ranch, riders will have at least two opportunities for western-style horseback riding during your vacation. Before you arrive you will be scheduled with a horse and saddle for your entire stay based on your riding preferences. Your horse will be chosen for based on the information you have provided on your Activity Information form. Horseback riding is exhilarating and there are rides scheduled throughout the week for all types of riding levels. All horseback rides will be leaving the valley floor to unique vistas, viewpoints, or peaks except for some of the younger children. Advanced and beginner riding is available. Advanced riders must complete the advanced test, allowing us to see your ability to control the horse and to make sure you and your horse are a good match.
Rustic Luxury Accommodations
Guests staying during their dude ranch vacations have always commented on feeling at home in any of our 20 private suites designed to keep our guests comfortable and cozy. Lodging options include everything from one bedroom suites to four bedroom authentic log cabins. Plenty of western flavor, comfort, and tasteful decorations will make you truly feel like you’re home away from home. Each accommodation includes full private bathrooms with plush towels, shampoo, conditioner, hand lotion and other items to make you feel welcomed. Sit outside in the companionship of a good book on your own private deck with wonderful views of the ranch.
Full Service Bar
A full service bar is located in the Main Lodge and open during lunch, the afternoon, and through dinner. Alcoholic beverages are available to adults at no charge throughout your stay at the ranch. A daily happy hour and hors d’oeuvres as well as a selection of fine microbrews, wines, and spirits are provided.
Meals and our famed 5 Course Dinner
After your days activities, get ready for a special culinary delight whipped up from our chefs. A splendid evening at the lodge under candlelight and music. Wonderful conversations, laughs, and delicate foods served in a seven course meal format. Our Head Chef will be choosing special wines for the dinner.
