We spent a weekend at the ranch and wish we had more time there. If you are looking for a place to get away from the stress of life then you need to visit the Bar 50 ranch. The staff and owners are some of the nicest people you will every meet. They treated us like we had known them...

On a long weekend excursion up to Hot Springs, who can resist going horseback riding in such a beautiful setting? Bar 50 is located about 15-20 minutes from Hot Springs, the drive is through beautiful hills and on windy roads. I think morning rides are the best, even though the trails are nicely shaded. They offer an hour and a...

We have stayed in the cowboy rooms, bunk house, and the camp grounds. The staff feel like old friends and family. We always take our horses and they have excellant accomadations for your animals as well. The pool is very nice way to cool off after a long trail ride. The last trip we took our granddaughter with us and...

Stayed in one of the small cabins. It was wonderful, private and great views of the woods. Some of the other reviews mentioned cleanliness problems, which we didn't notice at all. It would have been nice to have a blanket on the bed besides the quilt, and blinds over the sliding glass door, but that didn't take away from our...

I went with a friend for an overnight campout with my horses. I have never been camping with my horses, and wasn't sure what to expect. We took a camper and came in a little later than expected, but Betty (the owner) met us at the lodge and showed us our campsite. They had pens set up for atleast 4...

This is a great place! The management and staff are really friendly and helpful. The pool area is beautiful and has nice shady spots to watch the kids swim and a grilling area if you want to party around the pool. It is secluded enough that you feel like you have the run of the place, but large enough to...

Two of my girlfriends and I hauled our horses and scrapbook stuff from East Texas for a long weekend in one of the large cabins. We had a blast!!! We took food but didn't need to. There is a great little grocery store in Bismarck. They have great steaks!! We try to go a couple times a year. We once(2007)...

My husband's request for this year's vacation was a cabin in Arkansas. Our son is 5 months old, so we also wanted somewhere close enough to drive. After much research, I booked an entire week at the Bar Fifty Ranch. When we arrived, we unloaded the SUV and then checked out our quaint little cabin. At first glance, it's pretty...

We loved staying at the Bar 50!! We stayed at Bar 50 with the desire to just stay at a B&B for a couple of days. We stayed in the lodge rather than one of the cabins, so breakfast was included. The room was spacious, clean and a perfect get away. The staff was wonderful. We drove about an hour...
