The Hideout Lodge & Guest Ranch

The Hideout Blog

Welcome to The Hideout

The Hideout Lodge & Guest Ranch is an all-inclusive, upscale riding and horsemanship guest ranch limited to approx. 22 guests weekly with a 6-night stay. All guests arrive on Sunday and leave Saturday morning. As you can read from our guest testimonials, we offer a very personal, small, and intimate experience. We care deeply of our guests, staff, horses, and land.

The Hideout is in beautiful Shell, Wyoming East of Cody, and Yellowstone National Park at the foot of The Big Horn Mountains. With a backyard of 650,000 acres in an area with tremendous diversity of scenery and altitudes ranging from 4,200 to 13,100 feet, you will seldom see the same trail twice. Since its beginnings, The Hideout has always been an exceptionally clean, organized, and well-maintained guest ranch. It is one of the reasons many of our repeat guests return year after year.

A 650,000 Acre Riding and Adventure Paradise in Wyoming

Elevations in this area range from 4,200 to 13,100 feet and offer a unique variety of terrain and scenery resulting in a broad range of climates and biodiversity. With close to 650,000 acres to explore you will seldom ride the same trail twice or feel crowded. The terrain in which we ride ranges from mountain tops to meadows, alpine forests to Sedona-like red rock country, high deserts to mountain creeks and lakes.

We are not your typical dude ranch. We are a small guest ranch with approximately 25 guests each week, because it is important to keep our guests’ experience personal. Our guests leave The Hideout feeling as though they are not guests, but family.

Upscale Lodging and Food – Quality Hospitality

To us, mealtime means more than simply putting food on the table. It comes with the warmth and hospitality you expect when you go to your family’s house to visit. Our kitchen is more about quality and serving healthy food rather than quantity. We cater to most diets within reason.

We strive to offer excellence in hospitality, lodging and culinary pampering. By limiting our guests to approximately 25 riders each week, The Hideout keeps guests’ experience personal, authentic and as customized as possible. Many guests come back each year because of our staff. We hire using The 3 C’s of Character, Conduct and Competence and invest in the training and general well-being of our staff. With a one to one staff to guest ratio we do not cut corners when it comes to service and hospitality.
