Family vacations are increasingly important in this day and age when more families living in scattered locations across North America and the world. With time becoming one of the most important limited resources in today’s hectic world, family vacations are becoming increasingly precious times where everybody comes together to bond, relax, experience and learn new things (most importantly learning about each other.)
The Hideout Lodge & Guest Ranch is an upscale guest ranch limited to 25 guests and located on an authentic 300,000 acre working cattle ranch in the remote Shell, Wyo. The ranch is established in one of the most beautiful and rare settings you can imagine. This not only makes for great family pictures, but also instills a sense of peace and relaxation. The effect of the environment, the scenery, remoteness, casual family atmosphere, altitude, participation in riding, cattle work and other activities makes for a great bonding experience; everyone is less tempted to bury their attention in electronic games, computers, cell phones, etc. You have the opportunity to appreciate each other and share experiences “in the moment.” These special experiences will remind parents and grandparents of memorable moments shared with family in the past, which they pass on to their own family and grandchildren in a multi-generational vacation tradition.
Families can experience working cattle and ride with real cowboys and seasoned wranglers who are eager to share and teach “the cowboy lifestyle” in a safe environment – this job is still being done the way it was done many years ago. They will take you on breathtaking trail rides in diversity of scenic settings. You can learn as a family how to ride, communicate with and think like horses and cattle and how to handle these animals with respect. If you get worn out by riding, you can go hiking, biking, explore wildlife, learn how to fly-fish, visit some of the dinosaur dig sites and even assist a day in digging up some real fossils. Dad and the boys can learn how to trap shoot – only to find that mom and the girls will beat them at it!
In the evening, you mix with people from all around the world sharing in the excitement of the days experiences. Because The Hideout has many overseas guests, it adds an multicul
tural dynamic to your vacation; many youngsters forge lasting relationships with kids across the pond. Once home they add new Facebook friends from different cultures and backgrounds, often ending up with visiting them abroad the next summer.
A guest ranch vacation in Wyoming at The Hideout Lodge & Guest Ranch provides an all-around, safe and memorable family vacation- you will get the sense of visiting your own family home in Wyoming while surrounded by a group of friendly people who share in a close, unforgettable experience.
