Welcome to The Hideout

The Hideout Lodge & Guest Ranch is an all inclusive working cattle, riding, fly-fishing and adventure guest ranch in Shell, WY (east of Cody and Yellowstone National Park). Families, adults and single travelers from around the world return to The Hideout each year for a world-class riding,
working cattle and adventure guest ranch experience on our 300,000 acre ranch. In addition to riding, working cattle and fly-fishing, we offer an array of non-riding activities and adventures such as trapshooting, canoeing, hiking, biking, 4x4 tours, etc.

Marco Chavez

marcoMarco and his brother Ever are in charge of all maintenance, repairs, fields, buildings, irrigation, landscaping, etc. at our properties at The Hideout and The Trapper Creek Lodge and farms. Marco, who has worked for The Hideout for over 10 years, is well organized and comes with a work ethic that we can all learn from. Together with Ever, they are the team that makes everything run smooth. Marco’s wife Jadera also works for us on a regular basis in housekeeping and maintenance around the property – she is responsible for keeping all the cabins painted with weather protectant and does our painting projects as needed.

Marco and Ever are on call at all hours of the day, as there is always something in the valley, the mountain properties, The Trapper Lodge or somewhere else that needs attention. During the winter months they do construction and repair on our own buildings and initiatives, and more and more for other property owners. The restored Shell Lodge is one of their projects and a shining example where you can see their professionalism.

Marco and Jadera have two children and live in Shell. They always have a smile and friendly word to say.

Ever Chavez

everEver Chavez, or Junior, is Marco’s younger brother. When you see one, you usually see the other. Ever works very closely together with Marco, and has a great sense of humor. Ever and his wife Denise welcomed their first baby in February.

Ever has the funniest dog you can imagine called Lucas. Lucas (or Mr. Lucas) is a cross between a Pug and a Chihuahua. Seeing is believing, but you cannot miss him and he is very serious making sure that all is in order. Ever and Marco can build, maintain and repair pretty much everything there is and they love to learn new things and take on new challenges. Usually they only need to see something once and they can reproduce it. The two of them keep the Hideout in tip-top shape.

Horacio Pacheco

horacioA new addition to Marco’s team is the always smiling Horacio Pacheco. Horation started his first season working as an irrigator for The Trapper Creek Ranch this year. (Trapper Creek Ranch is where we keep The Hideout horses during winter time and where we grow our alfalfa hay for our horses.) Our crop depends on the ability of Horacio to bring water to all areas in the fields. During your rides to and from Devils leap or in the desert hills around The Trapper Creek Ranch, just think how much effort and time it takes to keep this area green and fight the weeds.

Prior to his employment at Trapper Creek Ranch, Horacio worked in construction and is a great carpenter. Horacio lives with his family in
