Welcome to The Hideout

Dutch & Flemish

The Hideout Lodge & Guest Ranch is an all-inclusive upscale riding, horsemanship and working cattle 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, hiking, biking and scenic 4x4 vehicle tours.

The Hideout is limited to approximately 25 guests per week from all over the world and has access to over 120 horses for our guests. We offer a one to one staff to guest ratio and the owners and management are actively involved with the well-being of our guests. We are committed to the highest standards of culinary experience, lodging, inclusiveness (we speak 4 languages), staff, horses, and offer a personal, almost customized vacation. We are very multi-cultural and embrace diversity as an asset. We truly care about making your vacation the best ever!

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.

The New Blog and The New ‘Stang’

The Hideout Blog

Well, today is the first Hideout Blog! For those of you who are not familiar, Blog: an online diary; a personal chronological log of thoughts published on a Web page. So for the Hideouts blog, we figure it is simply a great way to keep in touch with our guests and what is happening on the ranch.

At the same time as the arrival of the first blog, we have the arrival this week of the new Mustang. Ramon Castro (one of The Hideout’s trainers & wranglers) has been excepted to compete in the Extreme Mustang Makeover this year. He will have 90 days to train the horse (who is totally wild) to work with riders, compete in cattle work and go through a series of obstacle courses before the final show in June.

The name “mustang” derives from Spanish mesteño, meaning “stray livestock animal”. Today the ‘wild mustangs’ or free-roaming horses are protected under United States law, but have disappeared from several states where there were once established populations. Many of our guests will have enjoyed the familiar site, while travelling to The Hideout from Cody, of seeing the McCullough Peaks Mustangs.
