The Hideout Lodge & Guest Ranch

The Hideout Lodge & Guest Ranch is an all-inclusive, upscale riding and horsemanship guest ranch limited to approx. 22 guests weekly with a 6-night stay. All guests arrive on Sunday and leave Saturday morning. As you can read from our guests’ testimonials, we offer a very personal, small, and intimate experience. We care deeply about our guests, staff, horses, and land. Our ranch is in the tiny hamlet of Shell, Wyoming east of Cody and Yellowstone National Park at the foot of the Big Horn Mountains. 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 seldom see the same trail twice. Since its beginnings, The Hideout has always been an exceptionally clean, organized, and well-maintained ranch. It is one of the reasons many of our repeat guests return year after year. The 3 C’s of Character, Conduct and Competence are at the core of our Culture. Integrity, honesty and genuinely caring about our guests, your co-workers and owners are an important part of this.

Important Note

At The Hideout, we all live healthy, fun, active outdoors lifestyles. We eat healthy and exercise on a regular basis. That is also why our guests travel to The Hideout. Embracing this lifestyle is key to joining our team.

Our Culture of the 3 C’s of Character, Conduct and Competence is the core foundation of our ranch. Any new team member needs to embrace honesty, integrity, professionalism and a caring attitude towards guests, other staff, and owners.
