Welcome to The Hideout

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, hiking, biking, 4x4 tours, etc.

Limited to approximately 25 guests per week from all over the world and with access to 85 horses, a 1:1 staff / 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 long before the start of the season, mostly because of word of mouth and returning guests. As we do not plan to increase the number of guests per week please book your vacation long ahead of the season.

Upscale 300,000 acre Fly-Fishing and Riding Guest Ranch in Wyoming

flyfishing1Less is more…

The Hideout Lodge & Guest Ranch is an upscale working cattle, riding and fly-fishing guest ranch located in Shell, WY (pop. 87) East of Cody and Yellowstone Park.

At The Hideout we limit ourselves to offering a small number of activities in which we can exceed the expectations of our guests. To us this means riding, horsemanship, cattle work and fly-fishing along with a handful of other activities. We teach our guests how to enjoy these in a meaningful, fun and respectful way.

We fish over 10 miles of streams and creeks running through our 300,000 acre ranch, as well as stocked casting ponds and easy and more challenging streams. In search for excellence our guides also fish other lakes, streams and ponds in The Bighorn Basin and Yellowstone Region at elevations ranging from 4,200 to 10,000 feet. With a population of 2.1 per square mile (compare to New York City with 27,000 per square mile) you will seldom be crowded while you fish, ride or hike.

We fish mostly for brown, rainbow, cutthroat, Yellowstone Cutthroat and brook trout. We always have at least one professional fly-fishing pro on the premises and have access to more pro’s from the leading fly-fishing and guiding shop in Cody.

As friends of the fish, we are 100% catch & release.
