Since it was late in the season, these ladies made our experience special by procuring rides for us last minute. Our guide was very knowledgeable about the area and answered all of our questions perfectly.

I wanted a little cabin in the woods and I got it. I was off the grid during my stay (no cell service) but could enjoy the free wi-fi at the lodge when I needed to. Our first night, Sean came out with a rope and taught my son and husband how to lasso a steer by the camp fire....

We had an amazing time riding horses in the mountains at Blackwater Creek Ranch! We had a great guide named Kristina. She took care of us. She was very nice and friendly. She brought us back early when our City Slicker behinds couldn't handle the full 2.5hr ride that we wanted. They even refunded some of our money. I highly...

Would discourage you from staying here! The pictures and descriptions on their website are not even remotely close to the cabins! The cabin we stayed in was a "trapper shack," it did have running water however. The cabin itself was blazing hot during the day as there is no air conditioning and got quite cold at night. There were bugs...

Blackwater was awesome and the staff were great! They were very helpful with information, went out of their way to help the kids enjoy their time and the horses are great for kids to ride with reasonable riding rates. The cabins were very clean and cozy. Just what we wanted in a rustic & real mountain experience.

Whilst you may consider the accommodation to be a little rustic, don't be fooled, the beds are comfy and the showers are hot. We stayed here for a couple of nights during our fly drive holiday and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and packed plenty in, making use of the pool, going on a horseback trail with the Wranglers and...

We knew it was between Cody and Yellowstone with no Wi-Fi, Our kids had to talk and communicate without their phones. What a nice peacefully time we had. We had plenty to do. I talked with Diana before hand and had an agenda already set. Her husband - Johnie. took us all day ( from 6am-6pm ) driving thru Yellowstone...

I loved the hosts of BCR, Diana and Johnny. They were extremely accommodating. They are from back east, but you would never know it. After a long trail ride and getting soaked in the rain, and a day that turned off chilly and in the 40s, I changed clothes and went to the main lodge to warm up. Although I...

Had an overnight stay with a full day trail ride the following day. Accomodation is quaint and staff very friendly. Meals were great both dinner and breakfast - loved the bell ringing to sound the dinner call. The ride was awesome and the horses great. Great place to visit and stay a while.

I first want to start off by saying the owners of Blackwater are first class, accomidating wonderful people. I stayed with my daughter and two nieces and they made us feel right at home. The first day there we took a lunch trail ride. Johnny's horses were very well cared for and they took amazing care of my kiddos. We...
