What your Vacation Week Includes:
Your own horse for the week
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.
Outdoor Guided Adventures
From horseback riding to a 60 foot climbing wall, the list of adventures at Red Horse Mountain Ranch is exciting. Everyday while at the ranch, you can choose from a menu of available adventures each day during your vacation. Mountain biking, downhill mountain biking, scenic boat rides, fishing trips, fly casting lessons, a 3D archery trail, sporting clays, hikes, swimming, high-element challenge course, a climbing wall, and kayaking are some of your possible choices.
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.
Chef Prepared Meals
In the spirit of a great dude Ranch, Grandma’s recipes are alive and well, but we’ve added a little flair to bring out the flavors and the freshness of the West. With guests visiting from all over the country and the world, we like to keep our menus diverse, yet simplified to please many different appetites. The chefs will delight you with daily fresh breads, seemingly endless buffets, 7-course dining, and outdoor western ranch cooking. All of your entrees, appetizers, salads are made fresh daily. Lunches and dinners always include salad and seasonal, regional produce whenever possible, as well as breads and desserts, made fresh daily. We are open to special meal requests and dietary concerns for you and your family. We encourage you to fill out the allergy and food preference portions of the Activity Form so that we can be prepared for your visit upon arrival.
Drinks are on the house!
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. A selection of premium wines are available for purchase.Micro-brews, wines, and spirits are available.
One Hour of Massage
Our massage services are tailored to meet your specific needs based on the activities you choose to pursue while at the ranch. Perhaps you spent the day taking in high mountain views atop your faithful horse; your massage may focus on releasing your back, gluteal muscles and legs. Whichever activities you choose, the Red Horse Mountain massage therapists are here to support your mind, body, and spirit in ways that compliment your daily pursuits. You and your massage therapist will partner together to design the perfect session.
Airport Shuttle Service
Red Horse Mountain Ranch shuttle service is available for the Spokane, WA & Coeur d’Alene, ID region. The shuttle service is usually the best option for those travelers for whom the ranch is their single destination. If you are planning to travelers where after your stay with us, a rental car is usually a better option. From the Spokane Airport (Airport code GEG), the shuttle service takes approximately 1.5 hours, about 2 hours including the time it takes to get your baggage, to arrive at the Ranch. To be timed with your flight departures, your return trip to the airport will be scheduled 3 hours in advance of your flight which gives enough time at the airport for travelers.
Be prepared to ride!
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.
Idaho Fall Weather
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.
Dining during Girl's Week
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.
What if my daughter is only 12?
If your daughter is 12 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!
Can we all stay in a cabin 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.
