Min 3 Night Stay in Summer
Located on 960 acres of summer pastures with tall pines and breathtaking views of the Selkirk and Cabinet mountain ranges is the Western Pleasure Guest Ranch near Sandpoint, Idaho.

A third generation cattle ranch that has been operating on the same land since 1940. The ranch is located in Idaho's scenic Panhandle region, about 16 miles northeast of Sandpoint, Idaho. Roley and Janice Schoonover, and her parents, ranchers Jim and Virginia Wood, have transformed this historic ranch into one of Idaho's quality guest ranches. Hosts Roley and Janice share their love for their family ranch along with the rich history, beauty and traditions of the area. The ranch offers delightful sleigh rides for groups or couples during the winter and trail rides for all, during the summer. Some activities require that you be a guest at the ranch to participate.

Western Pleasure is for folks who appreciate sincere, real country hospitality, while enjoying beautiful handcrafted log accommodations. You will find the lodge atmosphere just right for quiet reflection in the cozy, natural-light loft while the children enjoy the rec-room below, featuring a pool table, TV, and a relaxing outdoor hot tub. The river-rock fireplace in the great room is another favorite with the "guest" families.

While staying at the Western Pleasure Ranch you are sure to enjoy the hearty ranch style food. The meals are prepared using only the finest ingredients to satisfy your entire family. The delicious beef you will be eating is raised naturally on grain and grass right on the ranch. No steroids are used and the cattle are processed through the family's own federally inspected plant.

*The beauty and seclusion of beautiful North Idaho are at your fingertips at the Western Pleasure Guest Ranch, located in Sandpoint, Idaho. But that doesn't mean that we don't have all the comforts of home, too! Amenities in the main building include a recreation room featuring a pool table for a friendly game of billiards plus an outdoor hot tub.

Accommodations are offered in the 10,000 square foot main lodge, hewn from local timber and offering six spacious guest rooms, each with private bath. Upstairs rooms are themed and have names like Miss Belle, Siesta, Nez Pierce and Duke's. Downstairs accommodations include the Grandma/Grandpa room.

Our luxury cabins include wood stoves for warmth on cool evenings. Imagine sitting around the crackling fire after a day of cross-country skiing, sipping hot chocolate with your loved one or family!

The Grand Lodge offers cozy common areas. A guest favorite is the great room where guests enjoy the expansive river rock fireplace and comfortable leather seating, The great room is tastefully decorated with a combination of mounted wildlife, including cougar, elk, bear, buffalo and a white moose (from Alaska) and art featuring local artists as well as well known artist Bev Doolittle. The downstairs recreation room provides a television for watching your favorite, classic John Wayne movie. Just off the wrap-around deck, you can submerge in the soothing water of the hot tub, or simply relax in one of the Adirondack chairs and soak up the fresh air and the gorgeous mountain scenery. The loft area offers the perfect reading or napping area, with lots of quiet and showers of natural light. Wireless internet is avialable in the lodge. All of our accommodations have access to laundry facilities.
