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.


The Hideout: Adventures in and out of the Saddle!

The Hideout Blog

Let’s be honest – most folks come to The Hideout to ride all day, every day.

There are, however,  some supportive family members and friends who might tag along on one horse-lover’s vacation but have interests that lie in other places. Perhaps they want to spend a week reading and relaxing on the spacious front porch of their cabin. Maybe they prefer to do a half-day ride and then trap shoot or fly fish in the afternoon, or perhaps they are most interested in seeing Wyoming back country while being toured around the Big Horn Mountains in our famous “Red Dragon” SUV to an adventurous or romantic picnic lunch destination. Some folks might even want to spend an afternoon in downtown historic Cody before heading to the Cody Nite Rodeo! We also have mountain bikes available at the lodge as well as staff who are knowledgeable about local hiking trails if you prefer outdoor adventure on foot.

Fortunately, the possibilities at The Hideout are endless when it comes to activities  – what do you want to do during your time in or out of the saddle?

In addition to the beautiful Shell Falls, the Big Horn Mountains offer vast scenery and thousands of acres of untouched wilderness

Shell is a treasure chest of fossils – sometimes our lucky guests can visit an active dinosaur fossil dig site!
