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.

Spring is underway at The Hideout, the weather has turned warmer, baby animals are in the fields and the grass is starting to turn green. As we prepare for the start of the guest season (April 4th) we thought we might remind you of the Hideout Referral Program.


Over the years, we have found that many of our guests find us via referrals from friends. With this in mind we thought that we should give credit where it is due and so, The Hideout Referral Program was born. Participation in the Hideout
