Welcome to The Hideout

Dutch & Flemish

The Hideout Lodge & Guest Ranch is an all-inclusive upscale working cattle, riding, fly-fishing and adventure guest ranch in Shell, WY (east of Cody and Yellowstone National Park). In addition to riding, working cattle and fly-fishing, we offer an array of non-riding activities and adventures such as trapshooting, archery, canoeing, kayaking, hiking, biking, 4x4 tours, etc.

Limited to approximately 25 guests per week from all over the world and with access to 95 horses, a one to one staff to guest ratio, and the owners and management actively involved with the well-being of our guests, we are committed to the highest standards of culinary experience, lodging, staff (we speak 4 languages), horses, and personal, almost customized attention. We are very multi-cultural and diverse.

Every year The Hideout books full well in advance of the season, mostly because of word of mouth and returning guests. As we do not plan to increase the number of guests that we host each week, please book your vacation well ahead of the season.

Fine Dining

Fine Dining Fare – Featuring First Rate Chefs

Our hearty Western fare and gourmet dinners are one of the main reasons our guests return year after year. The view from the dining room, where meals are served, is simply spectacular. We can assure you that excellent dining is taken very seriously at The Hideout. Each item is prepared with only the best and freshest ingredients. Most of our vegetables are local, organically grown and fresh from the garden.


Many of our new and returning guests come from around the world and a growing number visit us from countries and areas known for their food culture. Needless to say our chef and her team needs to be creative and have an eye for quality. Our kitchen is less about quantity but rather about quality and healthy food. At The Hideout we eat well every day.

Our Food

All meals are included in your guest package.

Each morning we serve homemade dishes such as eggs prepared any way you want them, pancakes, French toast, etc. In addition we also offer a breakfast selection at the buffet.

If you choose to participate in a half-day activity, a scrumptious lunch is served in the dining room of the Main Lodge. In the evening, we serve our guests western-style gourmet food, elegantly presented, with wine, beer or the beverage of your choice.

Once a week (weather permitting) there is an outdoor cook-out where we serve juicy, marbled Certified Angus Beef along with a variety of other tantalizing food. Our chef is very creative and does not limit herself to serving meat only. We cater to most diets within reason.

The fresh high-country air and invigorating outdoor activities will stimulate your appetite, and at the Hideout, your taste buds will always be richly rewarded.

The Hideout Lodge & Guest Ranch is your destination if you are looking for the unique combination of a real working cattle ranch, great riding, and world-class hospitality in remote country out West.
