About
The hotel was established in 1905 and is known as 'Wyoming's hidden gem' despite being located just 3 miles off Interstate 80 between Rawlins and Laramie. The Victorian era hotel has 12 beautifully decorated en-suite rooms and a full service fine dining restaurant serving dinner prepared by our Cordon Bleu de Paris trained chef (and owner). The hotel is situated in 10 acres of meadow and woodland alongside the Medicine Bow River. Open year round, subject to the vagaries of the famous Wyoming weather!

We just had Mother's Day luncheon. Our selections were prime rib and chicken cordon bleu. It started with lobster bisque and ended with a raspberry desert that were to die for. Couldn't have been better. So worth the drive!
