Top 10 Wild West Ranches in the US

Live Like a Cowboy (or Girl)

Saddle up and get ready for a rustic getaway at one of GAYOT's Top 10 Wild West Ranches in the U.S.

The Best Guest Ranches in America

Riding the open range is a highlight of classic ranch living. Add golf, spa treatments, fly fishing, skydiving and gourmet cookouts under the stars, and you have a dude ranch for today's discerning travelers. Each of the properties on GAYOT's Top 10 Wild West Ranches in the U.S. is authentic. But that doesn't mean you have to rough it... or that our list is limited to typical western settings. In locations as diverse as Georgia and Central California wine country, these haycations unite hoedowns and cattle drives with culinary classes and yoga in the great outdoors. So pack your appetite, your sense of adventure and your chaps, and prepare to saddle up.
