Hideout at Flitner Ranch, Shell, WY

5 of 13

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.
