Property description

Let the trail less traveled lead you to the Western Pleasure Guest Ranch. Your hosts Roley and Janice Schoonover, share their love for their family ranch along with the rich history, beauty and traditions of the area. Western Pleasure is for folks who appreciate sincere, real country hospitality, while enjoying beautiful handcrafted log accommodations.

Located on 1100 acres of summer pastures with tall pines and breathtaking views of the Selkirk and Cabinet mountain ranges this fourth generation cattle ranch has been operating on the same land since 1940. The ranch is located in Idaho's scenic Panhandle region, about 16 miles northeast of Sandpoint, Idaho.

Accommodations are offered in the 10,000 square foot main lodge, hewn from local timber and offering six spacious guest rooms, each with private bath.

If it is your own private log cabin in the woods you are looking for, well, we have three to choose from. Envision the quiet solitude of a modern rustic cabin to relax in after a day spent horse back riding, skiing, hiking, snow mobiling or enjoying the stunning scenery of North Idaho! These cabins can accommodate up to six, yet are cozy enough for two, with a queen bed in the main bedroom, a loft sleeping area with a queen and two twins, furnished kitchen, and classic wood stove heat.

The Grand Lodge offers cozy common areas. A guest favorite is the great room where guests enjoy the expansive river rock fireplace and comfortable leather seating, The great room is tastefully decorated with a combination of mounted wildlife, including cougar, elk, bear, buffalo moose and art featuring local artists as well as well known artist Bev Doolittle. Just off the wrap-around deck, you can submerge in the soothing water of the hot tub, or simply relax in one of the Adirondack chairs and soak up the fresh air and the gorgeous mountain scenery. The loft area offers the perfect reading or napping area, with lots of quiet and showers of natural light.

Whether you visit the ranch in the summer or winter the scenic Panhandle will take your breath away. Just a short driving distance from the ranch you will discover one of the largest fresh water lakes in the United States 'Lake Pend Oreille' Golfers will find several excellent courses nearby. Silverwood Theme park is within an hours drive from the ranch. And if winter fun is more to your liking, then you'll love 'Schweitzer Mountain Resort', one of the best ski areas in the Northwest.

Amenities in the lodge also include a recreation room featuring a pool table for a friendly game of billiards, foose ball, and satellite TV. Wireless internet is available in the lodge.

All of our accommodations have access to laundry facilities. Most meals are served buffet style in the great room of the main lodge. Western Pleasure emphasizes hearty ranch style food, including products from beef raised naturally on grain and grass on the ranch.
