“This is a refreshing 'down-home' corner of heaven!”

“My husband and I discovered this beautiful valley on a fly fishing trip and never wanted to leave. The genuine hospitality of the owner is a major attraction. Their southern-style breakfasts are divine and marginalize the necessity for further eating during the day, and we love the cabins and feel that the value is amazing. I've enjoyed the friendliness and caring nature of the owners, the simplicity and cleanliness of the ranch, and the quality of the food are the best-kept secret in the West.”

“Beautiful ranch in a beautiful place”

“I first discovered Swan Valley, ID as a 13-year-old kid with my dad learning how to fly fish for native Yellowstone Cutthroats on the South Fork of the Snake River. Swan Valley holds a special place in my heart. After 12 year absences, I returned to Swan Valley this Spring and stayed for the first time at the Hansen-Silver Guest Ranch. If you are in search of beauty, tranquility, cleanliness, and hospitality, look no further. Thank you for a wonderful stay at your beautiful ranch set amongst the cottonwoods. I will be back.”

“Need Peace and a Happy Place?”

“The Hansen Guest Ranch will tug at your heart if you have an appreciation for country life. For those who need people, many of the guests are international and nice as can be. If you like mobs then Jackson, Wy. is the perfect day trip from here. The owners' is a genial walking encyclopedia and the epitome of Southern hospitality and genuine grits. Do not stay too long because we want our room back. Did I mention fishing in the Snake River and bringing your DSLR and/or point and shoot camera.”

“Beautiful location, very hospitable”

“My husband and I stayed here for a week during our fall vacation. We were very impressed by the hospitality offered by the owners. With their guidance and recommendations, we enjoyed many activities: skiing in nearby Jackson, dining with a view of the Tetons, going on a hike near the ranch, and even cutting down a Christmas tree! The lodging was comfortable and breakfast each morning was delicious! I would recommend to all groups: families with children, couples, friends, business meetings. The facilities are accommodating, the owners went out of their way to ensure we enjoyed our stay, and the area is beautiful. We look forward to coming back for a spring or summer vacation!”

“Winter Suprise”

“Coming from southern California, I wanted to see exactly what winter conditions were like in Swan Valley and was surprised as to how mild the temperatures were for late February. A neighbor had X-country ski gear for me to borrow and snowshoes also were available at the ranch. Brought silks, mittens, thermals, and boots and actually was quite comfortable. Accommodations were excellent and individual temperature controls allowed me to set the heat to a comfortable setting for the day as well as night time.”

“Great Find”

“We did not have any reservations for the weekend of September 18th. We drove out from California and did not realize how busy the area would be with hunting and fall colors. Big mistake on our part. But we were welcomed and it was the best part of our trip. Beautiful property, wonderful hosts, and an amazing breakfast. We will be back. We are looking to buy new construction in the area and this will be a property we will be staying at during the process. Our hosts were the best!”

“My wife and I revisited Hansen Guest Ranch in September of 2018 and enjoyed the hospitality of the owners. The scenery is beautiful and so relaxing and the breakfast cooked by the host is outstanding with new offerings each morning. I have never tasted better grits. The rooms in the old barn are our favorite, so beautifully decorated and super clean. There is plenty to do in the area from fishing to hiking and horseback riding. But what we enjoy the most is the feeling of serenity the Guest Ranch inspires. We are booking again in 2019.”
