My spouse and I spent a full week at the ranch. The cabins are clean and well-maintained. Loved the horseback riding! Horses are beautiful and definitely well cared for.

Gros Ventre River Ranch is a wonderful place to go for horseback riding, good food, hiking, fishing, biking. Located in the Grand Teton National Park area the scenery is breathtaking. We could look at the Tetons from the deck of the main lodge, going down the driveway. The Gros Ventre River runs right behind the main lodge. The staff is...

We've been going to guest ranches in Montana, Wyoming and Colorado since 2004. Since 2009, we've been back to the GVRR every year. The ranch continues to have the best riding program, the best wranglers, the best horses, the best scenery, the best on site fly fishing of any of the ranches we visited. You can't beat the Grand Tetons...
