I was 100% pleased with my stay at the Red Pole Ranch. The cabin was spotless, beds were perfect, room was updated and equipped with everything you would need. Pattyjo and Kim were the absolute best hostesses you could ask for. If you're in the Cody area this is a great place to stay outside of the city and able... More

This 76 yr. old gramma just returned from what I call Gramma's Wild Ride. An 8,000 mile car trip across our beautiful country with my 13 yr. old grandson. In an effort to show him as much as possible I like to stay in different styles of hotels; classy, historic, sky scrapers, etc.. Of all the places we stayed Red... More

The cabin was clean, comfortable and enjoyable. Everything was quite nice and the management is friendly and accommodating. Location is very rustic near the mountains. Cody close by, via a beautiful scenic drive. This was part of our 40th anniversary trip to the West.

Thank you folks SO much for the Great response Lanny! We love people like you and your family who appreciate this place as much as we (and most of our guests do)! Right now the Sturgis Rally is starting in South Dakota and there are hundreds of motorcycles traveling past our ranch on their way to or from Yellowstone, and... More

We stayed in Cabin 5 at the Red Pole Ranch which is about a 15 minute drive outside Cody. The cabin was clean and comfortable and the proprietors are very nice and friendly. The cabins are off the road at the base of a mountain...just a beautiful rural setting! We enjoyed our stay.

You will not be disappointed if you book here. It is about 20 minutes outside of Cody but that should not put you off. Cody get so busy its nice to be outside of the town in the peace and quiet. The cabins are small but very comfortable, clean and you have everything you need. The owner could not be... More

We had a lovely time here. The room and bed were comfy. We had an awesome view from our unit (ask for #7 or 8). Only complaint was no ice machine. This is why I am giving it 4 instead of 5 stars. Really felt like that was a minor request. Very friendly owners. It is about a 10-15 minute... More

So sorry we couldn't get that Fifth Star from you Libby!? We DO have a small ice machine, but it quit working recently, and getting a repairman here from Billings Mt (112 Mi away) isn't easy! We promise that by the time you come back here again, we'll have ICE for you! Thank you! More

Thanks a lot folks-for the great review! Our cabin # 8 IS our best cottage-with the best view! BUT-I don't believe there is a BAD view anywhere on our property-there is beauty and nature all around and we're thankful for it!!

If you want to get away from the city this is a great place to stay, very nice and quite. Couldn't had stayed at a better place, so convinient and accomodating. Pattie Jo is "amazing" she made us feel welcomed and like family. Cabins are well kept with cable, WiFi and comfortable beds. If you like to BBQ, park is... More
