“a cabin in heaven”

The Western Pleasure Guest Ranch operates on a ranch that has a long history and has come to be what it is today, through hard work and family dedication. Before the guest ranching operation began it was known as the Wood V-X Cattle Ranch. Most of the Panhandle of Idaho was owned and logged in the early 1900’s by Humbird Lumber Company. The Gold Creek area was included in this logging operation. Rails were laid for narrow gauge stream engine locomotives to haul the logs out. Today many of those same grades make up the trails and roads used on the ranch. You will also find old apple trees, still bearing fruit, which grew where the loggers threw out their apple cores. After the logging operation in an area was completed they pulled up the rails and burned the area. Today, huge burnt stumps are all that remain of the hand cut logs. In 1939, Janice’s grandfather (Riley Wood) lived and farmed in Colorado and read of cut-over land for sale in Northern Idaho. He and his wife Gladys traveled here that summer and was shown land on Gold Creek. They fell in love with the area, went home, and gathering the family, selling the livestock and equipment, moved to Gold Creek. They arrived on February 14, 1940, in three feet of snow under a bright moon at 10 p.m. at the door of a very small, one-bedroom house.
