This is a very upscale dude ranch run by a European couple who have endeavored to make their guests as comfortable as possible, even in this time of the Coronavirus. The campus is first rate, the staff are experienced and well trained and the food excellent. To make the point here, one of our wranglers had recently exited the U.S. Marines as an officer; she graduated from the Naval Academy and was spending some time pursuing her passion for horses before going on with the rest of her life. My wife is not a confident rider. The wranglers quickly recognized this and attended to her fears so she could enjoy her experience. Meanwhile much more experienced riders were driving cattle. The scenery is spectacular. Many guests return year after year and we will now be two,of these as we are going back in 2022. Consult the ranch for all their activities as there are too many to concisely list here.

Sixth time to the Hideout, excellent as always! There were a few changes at the ranch, due to Covid....meals outside, at nice tables, with large space heaters nearby. Guests must drive to trailheads, not in the trucks with the wranglers...there was a little confusion one morning concerning that, but it was quickly remedied. There are air purifiers in all large rooms at the lodge, and hand sanitizer in the common bathrooms, etc., but bring your own, plus wipes, just to be safe!! This place was sparkling clean before Covid, if anything, it's even more spotless now! Meals were wonderful-thanks Rachel!, Melanie in the office friendly as usual, all the wranglers were wonderful, as was Ramon, the new head wrangler/cattle boss. Of course Marijn and Peter were excellent hosts, and I loved riding with Marijn doing the cattle work Tuesday. My horses were also wonderful-Phil, a favorite QH I rode last year, Romeo, a beautiful QH, and the last 2 days I had Shoofly, a big gray Mustang, who was incredibly responsive and a blast to ride-had some great lopes on him! There were 17 guests the week we were there, a great smaller group. Thanks to the Hideout for another memorable vacation!!

My niece and I are guests at the Hideout once a year in the fall. My niece rents the private house across the road from the ranch and it is divine. This ranch is professionally run, the staff is kind and courteous. They always wore masks, unless we were riding. Due to COVID, the cocktail hour was held outside with huge heaters and fires, rustic and cosy, plenty of space for safe distance. Dinner was served outside as well. The food is freshly prepared delicious. Different fresh menu every day. The horses are beautifully matched to suit their riders, and very well trained. The owners are very caring people who ride with the groups and bend over backwards to please. This is a 5 star ranch, you are a real cowboy here, with tons of support and help. We’re signed up for the next 3 years! I’m a horsewomen, 67 yrs young, and love every minute of our vacation.

My husband and I were lucky enough to get a spot this summer off the waitlist and we immediately jumped on it. Melanie was so kind over the phone in helping us to book. We had an incredible week. The ranch already limits the number of guests, but because COVID was in full swing there were only six guests including us for safety precautions. I am an avid rider who has been riding for 22 years and I was not disappointed by the quality of the horses and care or the rides we went on. I was so impressed by how much the staff cared about each of the horses and did the most incredible job of training them and limiting stress. Marjan and Peter were incredible hosts and were so inviting. The entire barn staff could not have been friendlier and always put the needs of the horses first. Rachel and her help in the kitchen were incredible. I am a vegetarian and I had incredible meals every time. We miss her cooking! My husband has only ridden a handful of times before and everyone was so patient with him! We highly recommend the hideout and hope we can make another trip soon!

While we ride regularly at home in Texas, it was wonderful to visit a ranch to see the beauty of Wyoming but also to have new experiences. We loved that this is no nose to tail type place and that riding could be our primary focus for the whole week! As a real working ranch with knowledgeable horse people, we were able to challenge ourselves to the next level. The staff was first class, lodges very warm, inviting and comfortable, meals by chef Rachel and her team were delicious!
