The Hideout’s Journey to Excellence and What it means to You…

We do not take our guests and many repeat guests for granted.

On the contrary, it puts a heavy burden on our shoulders to assure we constantly improve our guests’ experience year after year, knowing that without financial success we cannot commit to a great experience for our guests. Our only ego is profitable excellence in guest experience.

We aim at under-promising and over-delivering.

It means that the pictures you see in our brochures, advertisements and on our website are real. It means that what we tell you when you book you’re vacation by phone or e-mail, is what you can expect. In our communications and we strike to create a balance between sharing what to expect while making sure the real experience is so much better.

Committed to Excellence and well funded.

We are a seasonal business and your experience might slightly vary from year to year due to staff, new programs and operating in a remote location. The Ranch is a sizable operational 100-year old working ranch, dealing with cattle, horses, farming, weather, nature, etc.

However, we commit to a consistent quality experience year after year. We do not cut corners when it comes to maintenance, safety, investment in the right tack, saddles, horses, trucks, buildings, staff, training, management, etc.

We aim at hiring and employing the best staff.

We invest continuously in our staff and despite our remote location we try to hire the best people we can find. We do not shy away from letting go of staff and management if they do not meet the expectations our journey to excellence for our guests requires.

The Hideout Lodge & Guest Ranch is a member of most of the world’s quality Guest Ranch Networks.

Most guest ranches belong to some of these organizations. Few organizations are members of or are being accepted into most of these important networks and organizations.
