Last week I was fortunate to spend a week at the Hideout while on a photography tour. The facility is terrific, but the best part of the stay was how everyone went out of their way to make our photo shoots and stay go so well. From the wranglers, to the managers, to the office staff to the kitchen staff... More

The last week in September I had the most fantastic ranch experience out west at The Hideout Lodge and Guest Ranch!! The great activities, the delicious meals, the comfortable lodging, the beautiful grounds, and the breathtaking scenery all contributed to the wonderful experience!! Most impressive was The Hideout staff!! The entire staff was so dedicated to making the experience special... More

We have just left The Hideout and can't wait to return. First, the scenery is breathtaking. Second, the horses are great. Third, the food is some of the best we've eaten anywhere. Fourth, the atmosphere created by Peter, Marijn, head wrangler Tom Bircher and everyone else connected with the ranch is over the top outstanding. There are half-day rides and... More

This is one of the best vacations I have taken. If you love to ride, you will not be disappointed as there are morning, afternoon or all day rides. The evening cocktail time is when you can choose the following days activities. Deciding between riding, fly fishing, archery and trap shooting. We were able to move some cattle for one... More

We were a little bit sceptic when we arrived in this green, irrigated, very neat, clean and luxurious spot in the middle of nowhere. Is this a ranch? No dust, and where are the horses? We feared rules and prohibitions. But all that melted away when we started horse riding. The scenery (miles and miles of beautiful and diverse empty... More

The week at the Hideout exceeded our expectations in every way. My wife rode every day while I fly fished and rode. The accommodations were terrific and the food out of this world! The staff were, to a person, friendly and accommodating . The service overall was off the charts. We will probably go back again next year because it... More

Responsive and willing horses, gourmet cuisine, stunning scenery, fun wranglers, a most approachable head wrangler, superior office and ranch staff and very elegant and charming owners. That is just some of what you can expect at The Hideout Lodge in Shell, Wyoming. They have 90 well fed horses for just 25 guests. Their regular western tack is superior but you... More

Our week at The Hideout was like no other vacation we have ever had! Who would have thought at ages 60 and 61, we would be learning to ride horses in one of the most breathtakingly beautiful parts of our country!! (Not to mention learning how to fly fish and trap shoot!) We were not only learning how to ride,... More

Truly the best vacation I've ever had! The only thing I would have changed was going for two weeks instead of one! Seriously can't wait to go back and I did shed a few tears when it was time to leave. From our first inquiry online with Rebecca to arriving at the ranch, we were warmly welcomed and expertly outfitted... More
