Greenhorn Guest Ranch

Ranch in Quincy

Not a ‘dude’ ranch but rather a ‘guest’ ranch: instead of shoveling stalls, guests are pampered with mountain-trail rides, riding lessons, even rodeo practice. Or you can just fish, hike, square-dance and attend evening bonfires, cookouts and frog races – think of it as a cowboy version of the getaway resort in Dirty Dancing.

Before you raise an eyebrow at the price, note that meals and riding are all included.
