The Lazy R Ranch is a Private Ranch that comprises thousands of acres. Ranch headquarters are located in the beautiful, high mountain meadows of the Drybuck Valley. What makes us special is that we are an authentic working cattle ranch, yet have opened our doors to the public in order to provide real ranch experiences to those who would otherwise be unable to have such experiences. Our location off Hwy 55 between Boise and McCall puts us right on your recreational corridor.
The Lazy R Ranch is uniquely befitting for rustic weddings. One of the most interesting aspects of the ranch is that it is not just a dude ranch set up to have the look and feel of a real ranch...It is a REAL WORKING RANCH! To this day the main use of the ranch is to raise cattle and train horses. It is not built in someone's backyard in the suburbs of Boise. Instead it was born of the need for a mountain headquarters to manage the ranch's significant cattle undertakings. It is built in the forested hills of Idaho and nestled in the mountains above the popular recreational area of Banks, Id.
Despite the remote feel to the location, you don't have to give up the comforts of home. There is power and water at the ranch. The barn is well lighted and provides a large gathering area inside or out, whether light or dark outside. Full service Men's/Women's restrooms, complete with showers, are available for use. There is also a large serving kitchen in the barn.
The main Ranch House is capable of lodging up to 13 people comfortably and comes complete with kitchen and appliances. There are also 2 rooms available in the barn complete with their own full bathrooms. Additional Restrooms and Showers are available for those bringing tents or other camping gear.
There are many options for your wedding and we have many things available to help. We can provide tables and chairs, haybale seating, horses for photo ops, old fashioned wagon wheels for decoration and many other options.

Wedding June 1, 2019
My husband and I got married at Lazy R in June 2019. We honestly can’t say enough about the ranch. Everything was absolutely gorgeous. Jessica & Bryan we’re amazing to work with. They made the wedding planning process so easy and were more than happy to jump in and help anywhere they could. Jessica also made herself available 24/7 for any wedding questions we came up with. The venue is a perfect place for a “down-home” event whether it be a wedding, reunion or retreat. We rented the venue Friday through Sunday to have a “camping-style” wedding. Some of our guests camped in tents, done brought trailers, some stayed in the beautiful cabins. Every one of our guests loved staying at the ranch before and after the wedding to relax and socialize. Aaaamazing and beautiful, definitely go see it for yourself!! Thank you Lazy R Ranch 😊😊😊😊Sent on 06/24/2019

Bryan at the Lazy R Ranch / Idaho Guest Ranch was incredible.Sent on 06/15/2017
It was worth every penny to get the entire property for the 2.5 days, being able to set-up decorations on Friday and Saturday morning, then have our event on Saturday with no curfew time, and spend Sunday taking down decorations. We had ~220 guests arrive, a large number of whom camped on the property, which was amazing with fire pits, plenty of bathrooms, and having space in their amazing barn for the reception while we did the ceremony just 100 yards away in the grove of Aspen trees.
Wouldn't have changed a thing.
Thanks a ton!
