We spent several days at Tim & Susan's. One other guest while we were there. Shared meals, good food. Lodge is hand-built and very functional and comfortable. We went on a trail ride. I'm an experienced rider and they gave me a mannerly horse. My husband is a beginner and they put him up on a gem, a really sweet...

Most people come here for their "cowboy experience," a multi-day horseback journey into the Steens Mountain backcountry. We were there after the riding season had ended, and stayed in the house for two nights as part of our 10-day trip around the spectacular and remote countryside of central and SE Oregon and northern Nevada. Tim and Susan, with help from...

The owners of this guest ranch makes you feel at home instantly and really offer 5+ star treatment. I booked a 4 day cowboy adventure and had the time of my life.

This is a ride unlike any other! There's no plodding along on an overused trail here. These rides go up to the high country, on a working ranch, in one of the most beautiful areas of the west. Our hosts, Tim and Susan, are salt-of-the earth cow folks, who were gracious, welcoming, and never tired of answering our questions. Our...

My husband and I and our two girls (ages 11 and 8 “and a quarter”) spent a memorable afternoon in April at the Steens Mountain Guest Ranch. We had been in Burns, Oregon for the migratory bird festival and wanted to spend another day taking in the striking scenery of SE Oregon, before heading elsewhere on our vacation itinerary. And...

Great adventure - dude ranch style! If you want a true Eastern Oregon Ranch experience, this is the place! This ain't no trail ride! You will be working and feeling the joy of a job well done! Pure beauty and the nicest people you will ever meet! Lovely, comfortable accommodations and hearty food for hearty work!

A Real working Cattle Ranch that offers a variety of Experiences: Four and Five day "Authentice Cowboy Experiences", (where very samll groups of guests get to come and help take care of cattle up on the Summer range in the Mountains, stay in a Cow Camp, and ride all day in the mountains, working alongside the crew). It also offers a 2-day "Kiger Mustang Experience", which allows guests to ride out and view/photograph the Kiger Mustangs in the Wild from Horseback. Ranch Lodging is available to those looking for a quiet place to stay on a Working Cattle Ranch. Also enjoy Horseback Riding at its best. No "Nose to tail" riding here, just beautiful views riding along side a real Cowboy. ... more   less
