The Hideout at Flitner Ranch

A guest room at The Hideout at Flitner Ranch in Wyoming

Although city slickers are welcome here, this is a true cattle ranch, where guests can spend full days rounding up Black Angus mother cows and pushing them through the Bighorns. The 300,000-acre property has been family-owned since 1906 and open to guests since 1990. Adult-oriented, it emphasizes gourmet cuisine (the ranch's own prime beef) and cocktail hour along with riding quarter horses—there are more than 60 to choose from. Guests are invited to join ranch cowhands in team penning/sorting competitions, as well as pursue non-ranch activities, such as airboat rides, hiking and tours of the local dinosaur track site. Private cabins cater to no more than 30 guests each week.
