A Bar A Ranch

Set on nearly 100,000 acres in southern Wyoming's Medicine Bow Mountains, the historic A Bar A Ranch was homesteaded in 1881 and welcomed its first guests in 1923. It boasts 26 miles of private rivers and streams, and along with fly-fishing, activities include guided hikes, tennis and golf on a nine-hole course. There are more than 100 miles of private riding trails, and guests of all levels keep the same steed for their entire stay. Custom overnight fishing and riding trips are a specialty. In the dining lodge, the menu focuses on organic produce, naturally raised meat and food and wine pairings with vintages from the extensive cellar. Notable extras include a paved runway suitable for jets and a sculpture garden that pays tribute to western living.
