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.

Trap Shooting & Fire Arms


Guests of The Hideout have access to an excellent on-premises trap shooting facility with a remote control Winchesterprofessional thrower
device. At their leisure, guests can test their sharp shooting skills on clay targets shot up into the air.

You can choose between well maintained 12- and 20-gauge Beretta shotguns. Several of our wranglers are fire-arms instructors and make sure that you shoot or learn to shoot in not only a safe manner, but have fun and learn while you do it. Our wranglers are well-trained in the use of fire arms and will keep you on target.

Our head-wrangler Tom Bercher and his wife Rebecca, the office manager, have years of experience from their previous Army background in making sure our staff is well trained to handle fire arms in a safe manner.
