Western Pleasure Guest ranch is located on 1100 acres of ranch land and adjacent to thousands of acres of land for riding with breathtaking views of the Selkirk and Cabinet Mountains. We are a fifth generation cattle ranch that has been operating on the same land since 1940. Western Pleasure Guest Ranch is located in Idaho's scenic Panhandle, about 16 miles northeast of Sandpoint, Idaho, recently voted the Most Beautiful Town in America by Rand McNally. The ranch is conveniently just 60 miles from the Canadian border and 35 miles from Montana. 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. Your hosts will share their love for their family ranch along with the rich history, beauty and traditions of the area. Western Pleasure Guest Ranch is for folks who appreciate sincere country hospitality and real western adventure.
Whether you visit the ranch in the summer or winter the scenic Panhandle of Idaho will take your breath away. Just a short driving distance from the ranch you will discover one of the largest fresh water lakes in the United States, Lake Pend Oreille (Pond-a-ray). Golfers will enjoy the Idaho Club and the Elks Golf Course in Sandpoint, Idaho. Glacier National Park is just a half-day drive away. If winter fun is more to your liking, you will love our miles of cross-country ski trails or Schweitzer Mountain Ski Resort, one of the best downhill ski areas in the Northwest.
