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.

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 Trapper Creek Lodge and farms. Marco, who has worked for The Hideout for over 15 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 Yadira 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, Trapper Creek Lodge or somewhere else that needs attention. During the winter months they do construction, repairs and renovate or upgrade our own buildings. There is always a list of initiatives and projects they work on for other property owners. The historic Shell Lodge build in 1896 is one of their renovation projects and a shining example where you can see their professionalism.

Marco and Yadira 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 live in Shell with their daughter Jimena.

Ever has the funniest dog you can imagine called Lucas. 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.
