A guest room at A Bar A Ranch in Wyoming
Set on nearly 100,000 acres in southern Wyoming's Medicine Bow Mountains on the banks of the North Platte River, the historic A Bar A ranch has been welcoming loyal guests for generations. Along with expected activities such as fly-fishing and guided hikes, the property also features tennis courts, a nine-hole golf course, a sculpture garden dedicated to Western living and a private air strip. For discovering the hundreds of miles of riding trails there are 130 horses of all levels, and guests usually keep the same steed for their entire stay. Custom expeditions such as fishing mountain streams or exploring cattle ranches are a specialty. When the day is done, guests can return to their guest house or cabin to relax before heading to the restaurant, with a menu that focuses on organic produce, naturally raised meat and fine wines.
