Top 10 Wild West Ranches in the U.S.

Live Like a Cowboy (or Girl)

The exterior of Sorrel River Ranch Resort & Spa in Moab, Utah, one of GAYOT's Top 10 Wild West Ranches in the U.S.

The Best Ranches in America

A century ago, ranch life was serious business, with cowpokes, chuck wagons and little dogies getting along. Today, much to our delight, ranches defy stereotype. While some still stick close to their historical roots, others have branched out and include spa treatments and gourmet dining with their hoedowns and cattle drives. Whether classic or creative, guest ranches have become a staple of American lodging, and for those who want to unplug from the modern world without sacrificing comfort, we've compiled a selection of the finest haycations in the wild, wild West. Happy trails.
