To visit this amazing Wyoming guest ranch, fly into Cody, Wyoming near the east entrance of Yellowstone Park, and an hour east, you will find The Hideout Lodge & Guest Ranch. The Hideout is an upscale guest ranch limited to approximately 25 guests each week located in the little hamlet of Shell, at the foot of The Bighorn Mountains. With access to approximately 650,000 acres, elevations ranging from 4,200 to 13,000 feet and an unsurpassed variety of scenery, you will seldom see the same trail twice. The Hideout takes pride in an ever-growing number of repeat guests from around the world and we embrace diversity as an asset. Our American – European owners and management team are very involved in the day to day well-being of our guests.
Most of our staff are year-round employees and are safe, personable professionals who are passionate about our property, public lands, horses and especially about our guests.
Our wranglers are all fun, safe and personal guides. Our chef believes in preparing healthy food from scratch and focuses on quality rather than quantity. She is very attentive to dietary requests and is also an experienced rider. Our log cabins are upscale, well-appointed and very clean. We are upscale, very personal, family operated without being a resort.
Above all, The Hideout is a riding ranch. We practice natural horsemanship and we own and train most of our horses, including a string of Mustangs. Throughout the season, we offer Natural Horsemanship Clinics and have our own Natural Horsemanship Clinic & Training Center.
Together with team penning and cattle games, our guests can also participate in real cattle work on the range.
Advanced riders will find experienced wranglers and high-end horses, while beginning riders will find very patient instructors and safe, willing horses. The Hideout offers additional non-riding activities like fly-fishing with an expert guide, trapshooting, archery, hiking, 4×4 tours and an outdoor pool with a gorgeous view of the Bighorn Mountains. We do not offer a children’s program, but we welcome children from the age of 8. Children ride, dine and do all activities with their parents. The Hideout is not a nose to tail ranch.
