Romantic Things to Do on a Dude Ranch Vacation for Two

While dealing with the hustle and bustle of everyday life, it can be hard to spend uninterrupted, quality time with your partner. Escape the daily grind with a romantic vacation that will set the stage for romance and allow you to create new memories. This year, plan a romantic vacation to Red Horse Mountain Ranch, an all-inclusive Idaho dude ranch that’s perfect for a distraction-free getaway. 

Things to Do on Your Romantic Dude Ranch Vacation

Embrace the dude ranch lifestyle with your partner by your side on your vacation to Red Horse Mountain Ranch. Our ranch sits on acres of beautiful land in Northern Idaho, providing a romantic backdrop for your getaway. Spend your days enjoying each other’s company as you experience a wide range of activities that the ranch has to offer. Here’s a look at some of our favorite activities for couples. 

Horseback Riding

Saddle up and take in the majestic beauty of the ranch on horseback. You’ll be matched with a horse for the entirety of your stay, providing a unique, tailored experience. We have miles of trails to explore, and as you gallop on, admire the stunning peaks and vistas that create such a gorgeous backdrop.


If you’d rather explore the trails with your feet instead of on horseback, there are plenty of hiking opportunities to keep you busy. Hand in hand with your partner, enjoy a peaceful hike on our trails. Early morning, before breakfast, you can enjoy a short brisk hike and our stretch routine to warm up for the day. Later, visit the trading post to find out which trails are open for the day.

Kayak Tours

Have fun in the sun as you paddle Thompson Lake, part of the Coeur d’Alene Chain Lakes system, on a kayak tour. Keep your eyes peeled for wildlife, including osprey, waterfowl, beavers, deer, bald eagles, and even the occasional moose. This tranquil experience will help you connect with nature and your partner.

Other Romantic Activities

Any activity is romantic as long as you’re enjoying it with your partner by your side. Other highlights include fishing, mountain biking, 3D archery, sporting clays, and riding the MegaZip. If you want to venture off-site, Plan a day trip to the Coeur D’Alene or Harrison to explore the charming downtown streets.

A Dude Ranch Vacation Perfect for the Whole Family

You can still find time for romance while bringing the kids along on your trip to Red Horse Mountain Lodge. Our Kids Program is available in the summer during our Family Weeks and features activities designed to build confidence and inspire adventure. As the kids have fun participating in many activities, you can spend valuable one-on-one time with your partner. 

The Ultimate Idaho Dude Ranch Experience

In addition to all of the activities, Red Horse Mountain Ranch offers well-appointed accommodations ranging from one-bedroom lodge suites to four-bedroom cabins. We also provide healthy and homemade meals that will delight your palate. We have everything you need for a romantic vacation at our Idaho guest ranch.
