The Hideout Lodge & Guest Ranch in Shell, Wyoming

Sprawling over more than a quarter-million acres in north central Wyoming, The Hideout is the centerpiece of the 100-year-old Lodge & Guest Ranch. One of the largest working cattle ranches in the American West, this singular getaway offers an authentic experience in the hamlet of Shell at the base of the Big Horn Mountains. Heal your world-weary spirit and embrace your inner cowboy or girl as you ride quarter horses along spectacular scenic trails, join in seasonal cattle drives and roundups, and participate in invigorating day-to-day ranch activities. If you are searching for an authentic cattle ranch experience combined with high-end pampering and comforts, an upscale international crowd, all in a personal 32-guest boutique setting, you will surely discover all this and more at Flitner Ranch.

When it comes to your own private slice of paradise, you can expect more than an ole cowpoke's bedroll. Accommodations capture the spirit of the region, and include contemporary Western Casita apartments, Western-style log Cabins and the remote Upper Hideout in the Big Horn Mountains. As for chuck wagon delights, days begin with hearty breakfasts and wind down with elegant meals that include ranch-raised Angus steaks. Flitner Ranch employs a Le Gordon Bleu Chef who many times teams up in the kitchen with the prestigious chef from the neighboring Trapper Creek Lodge & Supper Club, making the combination a memorable culinary experience. When not ropin' and ridin', you will find endless diversions, such as trout fishing, wildlife photography, and exploratory trips to dinosaur digs.

I was introduced to Wyoming in the 1950's; I returned with my wife in the 1980's and we first came to The Hideout with grown up sons in 2015. We returned in a group of 12 including sons who are in love with the experience. We will be going back in force in 2018. We have the curiosity and have had the luck to have been able to travel in most of the continents. We cherish the mountains, the seas, the jungles and encounters with fascinating people. The Hideout is very special because of the people who own it and the people who run it. So rarely do we meet such delightful people who become dear friends. At my age, I love hot water, fine red wine and clean sheets; all are in abundance. The food is not excellent; it is superb. No postcard can project the extraordinarily inspiring and varied countryside. The horses and wranglers are wonderfully understanding and in our view, top class. I tend to fall in love with my horse with whom, to the amusement of many, I converse and argue. We bring love and try to contribute respect, exuberance and our finest friends to this magical experience. David van der Woude

Just spent a week at the Hideout Ranch and couldn't be happier with my choice to go there. I traveled alone but within minutes of arriving felt welcomed and it was a very fun group of folks riding that week. Some families, some couples and some solo travelers so everyone fit right in. I'm not the greatest of riders and even though I have ridden a lot - I always welcome advice and help along the way and all the wranglers were very happy to assist and by the end of the week I felt my confidence was up and really loved every moment of every ride. Big shout out to Deb who gave me some valuable pointers and had me riding much better by the 2nd day. The lodges are clean and spacious and super nice. The food was wonderful and plentiful and the chef and her staff did a great job catering to those with special diets and allergies. Such good food!!! yum!!! I can't think of one thing I would change about the Hideout. Everything was perfect and I'm already planning on returning next year. Thanks Hideout for a fabulous holiday!!!

Searching for Excellent - Found it at The Hideout Ranch After 41 years in business, I give The Hideout Ranch Owners and staff an A+ in every aspect of their operations. The owners Peter and Marijn lead by example with attention to detail in every facet of the operation from the clean and wonderful lodge, cabins and grounds, well trained horses, great meals, outstanding daily activities, and a staff that makes you feel as if you were a friend visiting their home. When I mention staff, I mean everyone: the Chef, Kitchen staff, Waite staff, House-Keepers, Head Wrangler and Wranglers, Grounds-Keepers, Administration staff, and the horses. Congratulations to Peter, Marijn and their team, for a job well done. Thank you for a wonderful time as your guest. Go to The Hideout and create a memory that will last forever. NH

As a return guest, I can say without a doubt, being at the Hideout for my 9th visit is like "coming home". At the age of almost 70, one never knows what the future will bring, and my husband and I are so grateful that we are still able to return to the Hideout and participate so extensively in all the activities--basically riding as much as we can--from half day rides to all-day cattle drives (my favorite). Even under some wet and snowy weather conditions this year, our trip was just as awesome as when the weather gods offer up those perfect days. Being out in the elements just added to the adventure. Safety is a priority at the Hideout and the wranglers and staff are attentive to the smallest details and guests' needs. This year we had the opportunity to assist with a big cattle gathering which was spectacular. I have done cattle work at the Hideout before, but this year was the best. All the guests took pride in what we accomplished. In addition to the riding and horsemanship, the food and accommodations are first class in every aspect. One of the special amenities the Hideout affords guests is their photography. Wranglers each carry a camera and take photos of guests during each activity--riding, fishing, trap shooting, archery, etc. Each evening they provide a slide show during cocktails and each guest is sent a link to the week's photos for their own personal use. Having this collection of photos from my first visit to the Hideout with my granddaughter is priceless. We can't wait to return in 2018. There are no words to define what a special place the Hideout is--it must be experienced to be appreciated.

This was my husband's and my second year to The Hideout and we were treated like returning friends. I had done extensive research before our first trip seeking a very elusive dude ranch experience. I wanted the ranch to be all about the horses and horsemanship. I wanted upscale(not fancy) accommodations and food and I did not want to be a number. Wow! Did The Hideout deliver! Comfortable, pristine "glamping-type cabins with very comfy beds, food WAY above chuck wagon grub, a staff bending over backwards to ensure you felt welcome and happy. By day two, everyone on the staff knew your name-I kept looking for the bodyguard And then there was the riding-that's what we were here for. Everyday, you had a choice of morning, afternoon and all day rides. The horses were beautifully cared for and matched to the experience level of the rider. Walking, trotting, loping (conditions and experience permitting), we did it all. The rides were also segmented to rider experience. Less experienced riders were grouped together and went slower, but saw the same beautiful landscape. The ranch only takes 25 guest each week, so the riding groups were small-no nose-to-tail here. Spread out, folks. Just keep in sight distance of the wrangler/group. The cattle work is definitely the highlight (2 days!!). This is not manufactured work-it's real and it's work, but it's fun. The cattle dogs come too and show us how it's done, cresting a ridge to discover 50 head of cattle to drive down the mountain, working as a team and learning the how to control the herd and turn them where you want them to go-the most fun I have all year. If you want the real deal and not a resort that has horses, come to The Hideout. I guarantee, like potato chips, you can not do this just once.
