I spent last weekend at Bull Hill, a magical guest ranch in northeastern Washington State.
I was introduced to Bull Hill a few years ago by a friend who has been visiting this real working cattle ranch (aka Dude Ranch) with his family for 13+ years. He raved about his love for this special place so I booked a weekend for me and my mom, who absolutely loves horses. We've since recruited a group of eight (moms and daughters) and celebrated our third annual visit last weekend.
Bull Hill is a magical place. The horses, the starry sky, the cabins, the pine trees, the clean pure air, the communal meals, the lake, the scenic views and new friends. It feels like summer camp.
The Guglielmino family and entire staff who run Bull Hill are generous, friendly and welcome guests into their rural world with open arms. For a fixed daily rate, horseback riding, accommodation, meals, open bar, trap shooting and more are included. Bull Hill is also known for its fly fishing.
After a hearty breakfast served in the cookhouse, you plan your day. For horseback riding, you can request specific routes, horses and times and the Bull Hill family is easy going and accommodating. Whether you ride to the river for a picnic lunch, visit organic China Bend Winery, head to the saloon, or go on a real cattle drive, you're bound to enjoy. In addition to horseback riding, there are plenty of activities to keep you busy.
The cookhouse is the central meeting place for meals, hanging out with other guests and staff, playing cards, and the open bar. After their last ride of the day, the horses are set free, and you can watch them frolic in the dirt to cool down and run free in the open field. It's great to connect with nature in this special way.
We'll be back again next year.
