We came to stay at the Bill Cody Ranch after spending 4 days in Yellowstone. My daughter (age 8) had been looking forward to seeing the horses the whole time. The ranch did not disappoint! We liked that the cabins are set in the woods - very comfortable. We saw some other ranches with the cabins out in the open and that looked hot! We stayed in the Western cabin that had a room with two twin beds for the kids (ages 8 and 6) which they loved. It had a little fridge and a coffee maker. The only thing missing was a clock. We were a bit worried about waking up in time for our morning trail ride, but at least I had an alarm on my phone.
Owners and staff were very friendly and helpful. It was fairly quiet there at the end of August so pretty relaxing. The kids enjoyed being able to walk around, go to the game room or practice roping the sawhorse bulls - they did that for hours! They also liked the turkey that roamed the area. : )
Meals were expensive. The kids had burgers one night and should've shared since neither of them finished them. Ah well. For breakfast we just ate muffins we had on hand. Ate in Cody later. Did the morning trail ride which was tons of fun. The weather was perfect and the horses were very nice. Jonathon who led the ride was great and very good with our kids who were quite chatty on the way! The views were marvelous and it was a brilliant start to the day.
We had thought we'd go into Cody and go to the rodeo, but the kids so enjoyed just running around the ranch that we stayed in, let them play and ate s'mores around the fire before bed.
We stayed two nights and were all sad to leave when it was time to go. Definitely worth the visit!!
