Crazy Mountain Ranch, Summer 2014 Lodging

The Crazy Mountain Ranch is an 18,000 acre working cattle ranch. It has a small town which is comprised entirely of antique & reclaimed buildings! The insides of these buildings have been reworked into the ranch’s guest lodging & activity centers. Every detail is just spot on & lovely.

We had the extreme luck to get a private cabin for our lodging! There are only a small number of these on the ranch, I was only aware of 3, including ours. Our cabin was called the Assay Office.

When you arrive, there are gifts to treat you & prepare you for the elements at the ranch. We were each given a very nice waterproof jacket, water bottles, bandannas, flashlights, and $150 to spend in the General Store on anything else we might like or need.

We bought a pair of Costa sunglasses because my husband forgot his, a Garmin GPS specialized for hiking, western jewelry for me, a wallet for my son, a metal water bottle with a topographical map of the ranch property on it, and some fun stuff like a dinner bell & a TON of old timey candy. The Crazy Mountain Ranch General Store had such a nice variety of items for everyone, including Carhartt sweatshirts & t-shirts customizable with the ranch logos.

We were also given each a new Stetson cowboy hat, which ranch staff steamed & shaped for us and a each a new pair of Ariat cowboy boots which staff helped us find the perfect size in. Boots are required for riding the horses & since most people don’t own them, the ranch gives you a pair! I’ve never worn cowboy boots before, in spite of living in western country, so it was nice to get a pair fitted to me!

  • Great Ranch post! Just want to thank you two for making MY ranch trip that much better. The trip of a lifetime was made by that amazing staff and meeting new friends like you. We will probably never meet again but I’ll always remember the time you shared with me at the Ranch
