Ranch Vacations for Couples ~ Adventure and Relaxation.
Kids, we love you but it's Mom and Dad's turn.
- 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. But few people know when Fall comes, the ranch becomes quiet, serene, and takes on a completely different feel in the snap of a finger. Horse hooves thunder through the valley. Misted mornings of dense fog lift to clear blue skies and a sense of stillness takes over. The morning blessings of a warm cup of coffee ready you of today's upcoming adventures and why you're a little sore from yesterday. The foothills of the Rockies are beginning to turnshades of red and yellow, spectacular in their own right. Chorused by our nearby elk herd and local campfire cowboys, you'll be blessed with the simple hospitality of a premier Idaho ranch. The quite will help you soon discover thatSeptemberandOctoberare months not to bemissed at Red Horse Mountain Ranch.
We're "All-In" not just All-Inclusive.
- The ranch becomes a placefor 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 simple sit and read a book. I like it both."Imagine having a place where thepeople are "all-in" 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 leaves goose bumps every time you think of it. Check the reviews. This is how we do things. Not saying the Fall can't get a little crazy - I guess it all depends on what you decide.
Horseback riding is just the beginning
- During your week at Red Horse, you'll explore over 30 regional wines, 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 a monstrous pillow topped bed in log cabin on a distant mountain in the middle of Idaho. Requested by our returning guests, the Wine Tasting Weeks are part of the all inclusive ranch vacations for couples during the fall season. Wine Tasting Week is a perfect week for singles, couples, and friends. Each evening the lodge will be filled with conversation and festive atmosphere while you enjoy wines from the Pacific Northwest, chosen by our chefs. As the night progresses, enjoy our evening entertainment programs or just sit back and relax, maybe 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 in the crisp mountain air to lines of fog rolling through our private valley while the horses search out the first beams of the day's light.
The Wine Tasting Week continues 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 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.
A more appropriate title would be what isn't included. Besides everything listed below there are some knick knacks 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). Other than this - 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.
