Red Horse Mountain Ranch
Themed getaways and log cabins make this wilderness ranch a favorite with families, couples and groups.
At the 300,000-acre Red Horse Mountain Ranch near Lake Coeur d'Alene, guests can trail ride to wilderness viewpoints during the day and spend starry nights sitting around a campfire listening to cowboy poetry. From June through October, the ranch offers a selection of all-inclusive getaways themed for families, couples and wine lovers looking for a unique escape. Rates include a variety of riding programs for guests three and up; accommodation in private cabins or lodge suites, complete with log furniture and covered porches; and special meals like the weekly Wine Dinner for adults (meanwhile kids enjoy supervised activities). Non-equestrian activities range from pottery-making and yoga to lake fishing, archery and zip lining.
