Welcome to The Hideout


The Hideout Lodge & Guest Ranch is an all-inclusive, upscale riding, horsemanship and working cattle guest ranch. The Hideout is located in beautiful Shell, Wyoming which is east of Cody and Yellowstone National Park. We are limited to approximately 25 riders weekly. 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.

The Hideout is focused on horseback riding, horsemanship and working cattle. Our string of 130 horses consists of Quarter Horses, Paints and a growing number of Mustangs. We take pride in offering a very personal, fun and safe riding experience. We do offer other activities to provide a break from the saddle including fly-fishing, trapshooting, archery, scenic 4x4 driving tours, Cody Nite Rodeo (seasonal), hiking, a hot tub and a gorgeous lap pool.

We are a team of passionate and diverse professionals who deeply care about your vacation and well-being. We are committed to the highest standards of culinary experience, quality lodging, attentive staff, and responsive horses. Our European/American owners and staff are multi-cultural and view diversity as an asset. We also welcome a growing number of international riders and travelers each week. Many return year after year because of our unique and caring culture which is also one of our most important assets.


“No Worries” – All-Inclusive Vacations at The Hideout Lodge & Guest Ranch

The Hideout Blog

“No worries” is a phrase we like to use to describe our guest experience here at The Hideout Lodge & Guest Ranch.

An important part of our worry-free philosophy is being all-inclusive. This means that you know exactly how much a vacation at The Hideout will cost you. It means no surprises, no discussions with the kids or family members about wanting to do this or that or turning out your pockets when checking out at the end of the week.

All-inclusive packages mean that you don’t need to blow your vacation budget to please the different needs of your family or traveling companions once they are at the ranch. It means that, when you book your vacation, you know that almost anything your heart could desire is included in the rates. Our rates include: lodging, food, wine with dinner, cocktail hours, all riding instruction and cattle work (under the safe and watchful eyes of our Hideout wranglers and cowboys,) horsemanship and stockmanship clinics, all non-riding activities like trapshooting, unguided fishing, canoeing, 4×4 tours, roping lessons, hiking, biking, ranch tours, etc., all gratuities & taxes and a DVD with pictures of from each day of your stay.

What is not included? Well, if you decide to get a massage, go on a rodeo excursion with our wranglers in Cody, Wyo, take a day of professionally-guided fly fishing or purchase any items from our well-stocked gift shop it will be an extra fee.

“No worries” also means that The Hideout Lodge & Guest Ranch is a safe place for you and your family. We hire our staff based on The 3 C’s of Character, Conduct and Competence and train them well. They are responsible and will never put you in danger during any of our activities. The Big Horn Basin and mountains, where we are located, are also some of the safest places around with no crime, little traffic and no nervous or frustrated people riding in the mountains… we are also grizzly-free, contrary to many other ranches in Northern Wyoming.


In the evening when parents are sipping a last glass of wine enjoying great conversations with the other guests, the kids and teenagers can roam around the lodge and property freely without the need to worry.

A no-worries, all inclusive family vacation at The Hideout Lodge & Guest Ranch is an all-around great family experience!
