Welcome to The Hideout Lodge & Guest Ranch East of Yellowstone National Park and Cody, Wyoming. The Hideout is an upscale working cattle, riding and adventure ranch headquartered in the tiny hamlet of Shell,Wyoming (population 83) at the foot of the Shell Canyon and Big Horn National National Forest.

We ranch 300,000 acres and we have access to approximately 650,000 acres with elevations ranging from 4200 feet to 13100 feet in a rarely seen diversity of landscape and scenery.

As a guest ranch we limit our riders to approximately 25 per week to keep it personal, customized and genuine. This is a riding ranch and not a nose to tail ranch. We take great pride in our horses, own most of our horses and welcome all levels of riders from around the world. The Hideout Lodge & Guest Ranch management, staff and owners are culturally astute and experienced in handling diversity.

Along with great riding, The Hideout Lodge & Guest Ranch offers a variety of non-riding activities such as fly-fishing and fly-fishing initiation, trapshooting, archery, 4x4 tours, hiking, biking, canoing, kayaking, photography weeks, ranch tours, Cody Rodeo, visits to the local dinosaur dig sites, etc.

Lodging is upscale, very clean, up to date and well maintained. Our food is all prepared from scratch and diverse.

We have been ranching in this area for over 100 years and multiple generations, which assures tradition. At the same time part of our management and owners family are European and well travelled. This combination assures the right mix of tradition and knowledge of the world our guests are living in and the quality and experience they expect to make sure this is a great ranch experience.

The Hideout Lodge & Guest Ranch is a western horseback riding paradise for all levels of riders looking for upscale pampering, great horseback riding, a unique and endless variety of trails and cattle work on 300,000 acre, 100-year old Wyoming cattle ranch.

Just as our riding offers a quality, fun and safe riding experience for all levels of riders, our cattle works offers the same experience. We have livestock for our guests to practice on in the lower pastures and arena but at the same time we offer authentic cattle work as part of the real ranch work.

We are NOT a nose to tail ranch! You will experience a rarely seen diversity of opportunities for cattle work and riding opportunities at a real working cattle and riding ranch, luxury style.
