The Ranch

Bull Hill Guest Ranch, located in northeastern Washington State, sits at the foothills of the majestic Rocky Mountains near British Columbia, Canada. Sweeping panoramic views of neighboring Idaho, Lake Roosevelt and Canada provide a backdrop setting that is one of the most picturesque in the Pacific Northwest. Opened in 1995, Bull Hill Guest Ranch is part of a large working cattle ranch that dates back to 1903. Rich in history and tradition, the ranch today has become a favored destination for families, corporate retreats and the outdoor adventurer who is looking for authentic western living amidst the tall pines and cedars. It is especially noted for its fly fishing and horseback riding.

Glamping Tents

This is as glampy as glamping gets.  Completed in 2012, our two canvas glamping tents, also known as Safari Tents, bring back a tradition that began when Bull Hill Guest Ranch first opened in 1995. Each tent is just 100 feet from our Shower House, where each tent has its own private bath and shower. This “camp” site harkens back to the days of luxury lodging in Yellowstone or Glacier National Parks.  Fully furnished and wired for electricity, these tents, fondly nicknamed “Lakota” and “Laredo”, provide a connection with the great outdoors that our other lodging just can’t duplicate. Expansive, covered front porches with lodgepole railing, provide sweeping views of the surrounding countryside, river, mountains and valley below. Two queen beds, fitted with cushy comforters and fluffy pillows, easily allows sleeping capacity up to four people—very luxurious as a single or double!  Ideal for young couples, families or those seeking privacy with a romantic twist.

Activities

Horseback Riding

Guests looking for a more relaxing (laid-back) horseback riding experience can saddle up one of the ranch’s more than 70 horses for a scenic, guided trail ride. Available from April through October, the two-hour (or longer) trail rides combine breathtaking views of nearby Lake Roosevelt and the Columbia River with a variety of terrain, including open meadows and forests. Riders can even hit the trail to visit the nearby China Bend Winery—on the shores of the Columbia—to sample selections in the tasting room, or enjoy a cold brew in the lively atmosphere of the Crown Creek Saloon.

Ansaldo Lake

Ansaldo Lake is privately owned by the Guglielminos and is reserved exclusively for Bull Hill Guest Ranch. It is approximately 20 acres in size, and stocked with rainbow trout. It is a natural spring fed lake, dating back to prehistoric times. Don and Pete’s great grandfather Peter Ansaldo founded the lake as his original homestead in 1903 when he emigrated to this country from Italy. It has been passed down through four generations, and is enjoyed today by visitors nation-wide as a favored destination for mountain fly fishing.

Cattle Drives

Cowboys and cowgirls alike may enjoy the opportunity to take part in authentic cattle drives. Lasting anywhere from a half day to a full day, the drives typically occur between May and October when the cattle are driven to spring grass areas or upper pastures throughout the summer and early fall months, before they are driven back to the ranch. Beginner to advanced riders are welcome, although riders should have the ability to ride with complete confidence.

Saloon Tours

A short 60-minute ride from the cookhouse at Bull Hill Guest Ranch you will stumble upon a true gem in the woods. An authentic old west saloon complete with a boardwalk, a barkeep and double swinging doors. Immerse yourself in the gunslinger culture as you sip a Jack and Coke or blow the head off a cool draft beer after a long day in the saddle. Wash away the trail dust while visiting with friends or making new ones. Be sure to bring the little ones as just two doors down is a “moving pictures” theater done up in authentic old west style (with a few modern features). There will be plenty for them to do as you enjoy a leisurely afternoon visiting with friends and neighbors.
