Long standing members of the Dude Rancher’s Association, McGinnis Meadows Cattle & Guest Ranch is situated along a wide open meadow at 3,300 feet elevation with a year round creek and surrounded by tall timbered mountains.
Moose pass through the ranch, and elk too! Homesteaded in the 1890’s by the Davis family, you’ll find remnants of the past, such as their original house site, the later used “Davis Place,” and the “Old Orr Place.” Still used today, little log houses nestled along the edges of the tree line and the meadow. Cattle moved into the valley in the 1920’s.
With their love of riding, and carrying on the Buck Brannaman style of horsemanship, Shayne and Jo-Anne established the guest ranch in 1998. Although riding is our main emphasis, this country lends itself to an abundance of outdoor experiences. Hike to the ridge-top from the ranch and see the Cabinet Wilderness Area, mountain bike the abandoned old logging roads, catch a brook trout just before dinner, or just listen to the rustling leaves of the aspens from your private deck. A pleasing mix of the old with the new, we invite you to be a part of its history.
