If you feel like you need to simplify and head on out to a dude ranch, Bull Hill Guest Ranch in Kettle Falls is your cowboy (and girl) dream-come-true. From “glamping” style accommodations with tents and rustic cabins to western-style activities, this spot is sure to transport you back to simpler days. So dust off those old boots and get ready for a wild west adventure —modern style.
During your stay, you can make friends with one of their 70 horses on the property and enjoy traversing the picturesque mountain landscape on horseback. It'll give you total Red Dead Redemption vibes.
But if a leisurely ride doesn't satisfy your cowpoke crave, you can try your hand at cattle driving.
Or, if you are looking to be social, the Cookhouse and Saloon are where you can enjoy the company of other "dudes" and "dudettes" and have some food and beverages.
If you're looking to get your hands dirty, try your hand at trap shooting, where the resident cowboys will hand-deliver you clay to shoot your shot.
The daily rates are all-inclusive and run around $230-$290 include lodging, full meals, beverages (beer, wine and spirits), unlimited ranch activities and all resort attractions.
For those hot Eastern Washington days, grab a kayak or paddleboard and visit the ranch's privately owned Ansalado Lake, reserved exclusively for Bull Hill guests.
If you fancy yourself as a fisherman, the lake is stocked with Rainbow Trout and is a great spot for fly fishing.
So whether you’re looking for a romantic weekend getaway or a chance to enjoy a two-hour horseback tour or fly fishing with your gal pals, Bull Hill Guest Ranch has you covered.
