Welcome to Bull Hill Guest 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.

An Experience Like no other

Days Left This Season




Hoseback 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


Trap Shooting

So you’ve spent a day in the saddle and it’s time to unwind. After dinner is time to socialize and enjoy the evening sunset. Why not head up to the trap shooting range and fire off a few rounds and show your shooting prowess? The Cowboys will bring up the gear and the clays all you need to do is have fun!

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.


Ansaldo Lake

Ansaldo Lake is privately owned by the Guglielminos and is reserved exclusively for Bull Hill Guest Ranch. It is approximately 25 acres in size and stocked with rainbow trout. It is a natural spring fed lake, great for swimming, kayaking, paddle boarding, and fishing. Don and Pete’s great-grandfather Peter Ansaldo founded the lake as his original homestead in 1903 when he immigrated 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.

Bull Hill Guest Ranch Cookhouse

The Cookhouse

The Cookhouse is the centerpiece of daily activities and socialization. Games, the Cookhouse Bar, horseshoes, campfires, meals, beverages, snacks & starters are all available here all day. For adults, the open Cookhouse bar offers a cordial and friendly atmosphere after a day of play. As the sun sets you can relax and literally “look down” on the world below or engage in storytelling and conversation at the cookhouse or bar. This genuine atmosphere cannot help but be noticed as you arrive as a stranger and leave as family


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.

Front Office

Joe returned home and to the family business in 2012, after spending some years away in Honolulu, HI and Phoenix, AZ. His experience as a mechanic has been an invaluable asset to the ranch. Joe’s knowledge and love for the land he grew up on comes across during his trail rides when you’re sure to ride somewhere you’ve never been before. Accompanying Joe on most of his rides and cattle drives is his sweet Border Collie, Lilly, who’s been a wonderful addition to the ranch as well.


Hunter is another son of the ranch and in is the youngest of the Guglilmino clan. Hunter brings his own youthful style and energy to the ranch and you will thoroughly enjoy riding the trails and washing down the trail dust with this fine wrangler.


This will mark the fourth season for Jordanna at Bull Hill Guest Ranch. She has lots of experience in the saddle and is just plain fun to be around. Don’t hesitate to ask her for an “advanced” ride if you feel up to it. Going off trail can be an exhilarating experience!
