Cowboy Authentic & Cozy

Private Rustic Cabins

Our cabins, can comfortably accommodate from two to eight guests depending on the particular cabin. We offer one and two bedroom cabins--that were once only canvas tents with individual wood stoves! Today you'll find much more luxurious amenities than guests over 100 years ago enjoyed, but within the logged walls, you can still find sections of the canvas tents that were eventually enclosed. Each cabin offers an open or screened-in porch within view and a short walk of the river.

Cowboy Cuisine

With over 25 years of experience, Chef Eddie Allen will keep you anxiously anticipating the next great meal. His signature cowboy cuisine definitely compliments the "Western Experience" you'll find at the Bar Lazy J Guest Ranch. You'll be able to taste his devotion to the "lost art" of making his own stocks and baking his own breads early every morning.
