About Kendra Meidinger

The Diamond 7 Bar Ranch was homesteaded by the Mahoney's in the late 1800's and is still owned and operated by the family, Pat and Beth (Mahoney) Reilly. The ranch now includes 10,000 acres of beautiful ranch land in the Black Hills of Wyoming. The ranch is home 1,000 head of yearling cattle that summer pasture here. Ranch activities are based on the cattle work to be done. We also have a herd of 35 horses that are used in both cattle work and trail riding.

unique one-of-a-kind experience

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed here for 2 nights on our way to the Yellowstone. We had an incredible time! Kendra and Gabe were so accommodating answering all of our questions. Our boys (16, 14, 10) went horseback riding and loved it. We also went to both ponds to fish for Trout and caught 8 fish. We felt like we weren't guests of the ranch but just a part of the family. There are 3 horses that roam the ranch during late afternoon through morning which our kids loved interacting with. Sat on the back porch with a glass of wine taking in the beautiful, peaceful scenery. It was an experience none of us will ever forget. Many memories shared at this incredible place. Thank you Kendra and Gabe!

Really Cute log cabin and the nicest folk you could wish to meet

  • 5 of 5

My family & I stayed here for 3 nights en-route to Yellowstone. We couldn't have made a better choice and only wish we could have stayed longer. Pat and Beth are wonderful hosts, and Kendra who manages the property for them is a real sweetie. The cabin was perfect for our two small boys who enjoyed gathering eggs. We paid a bit extra to have our meals in the ranch and it was worth every penny. Kendra's cooking is to die for and the produce from the farm is as good as you will ever taste. Devil's Tower is really close, and Spearfish Canyon, Deadwood, Rushmore, Crazy Horse and Custer State Park are all within easy reach. I can't recommend this place highly enough and we hope to return some day. Thank you for a wonderful stay Pat, Beth & Kendra
