Hideout at Flitner Ranch, Shell, WY

The intimate Hideout, set on 150,000 breathtaking acres, is unusual for a number of reasons: it embraces families, yet offers no children’s program; it’s a bona fide cattle ranch whose work, in summer, is done largely by guests; and despite the cowboy bent, it doesn’t spare creature comforts like top-notch dining and spa services.

Riding: Rides vary in length, traversing anything from quasi-desert to alpine forest and craggy canyons. Those with decent riding skills can choose to do a day (or more) of cattle work, which may include moving cattle into summer pastureland or branding.

Capacity: 25 guests; 80 horses.
