Ranch at Ucross

Reviewed 11 September 2011

The ranch caters to tour buses. If you are a solo guest and not in a tour bus you are overlooked. The horseback ride is a 1/2 walk ride around the perimeter of the property even if you are an experienced rider. The meals are served buffets style and are reminiscent of college dorm meals. The breakfast was stone cold and no accommodation was made to serve anything hot after guests complained. The swimming pool was green and very unappealing. The toilet in the room needed to be reset and there were dead bugs on the window sills. One day's stay was $360 - There are better options for a ranch experience in Wyoming.

I can't say enough good things about my recent stay at the ranch. The grounds of the ranch are great. They have a great pool. There are also many activies including horse-back riding and fishing. The rooms were nicely decorated and very large. The stuffed animals that they leave on the pillows was a nice touch. The main ranch house was very cozy and had the feel of being at someone's house. The ranch also has several buildings spread out around the grounds.

Meals at the ranch are great. At 7:00 P.M. they ring the dinner bell. Dinner is a great buffet at the main ranch house. The food was excellent and the service was great. Breakfast was also a great buffet. Everyone at the ranch is friendly and the service is great.

I really enjoyed my stay here and would highly recommend it to others.

The Ranch at Ucross is off the beaten path but between Cody and Mount Rushmore. If you are in the vicinity, drive the extra miles and be well rewarded. This beautiful property is open to travelers May-September and is utilized for conferences and events the rest of the year. We stayed in the Piney Woods building and the room was spacious and spotless---totally updated! No TV but who needs it when you can partake in fishing, horseback riding, hiking, a heated outdoor pool and other special amenities. Kids loved it and the ranch hands are pleasant and helpful in every way. Even the 4-year-old was helped to have a horseback ride! Dinner and breakfast were plentiful and varied buffets, served when the bell rang at the ranch house. (And there was a nicely stocked bar...) Our greatest regret was that travel arrangements forced us to stay only one night; it is such a wonderful respite from the crowded tourist areas that we would have stayed a week. At the same time, you feel everything is a genuine ranch experience in the best sense of the word!

We stayed one day at Ucross as part of a tour but we wished we stayed at least another night. The rooms were clean, large and the beds were very comfortable. The food quality and taste was very good. The kids loved the tennis, pool and lawn area to play in. The horseback riding was fun and a pond and stream for fishing are available. The staff was pleasant and fun to talk to. This place is highly recommended.

If you want complete tranquility, head for here. From the moment you arrive you are treated like a member of the family. Great for walking, horse riding (although we did not, we wished we had). After a day either relaxing or doing an activety, you return to your cosy room where you can rest in comfort before your meal. The bell is rang for dinner, and what a feast, real home cooking in a stunning location.

The experiece from beginning to end of our stay was wonderful. We were met by the owners who were warm, friendly, and helpful in every way. The activities were numerous from horseback riding, tennis, paddle boating to hiking or just relaxing on your porch or at the pool. You did your own thing and were able to relax and enjoy. The campfire was fun. The acccomodations comfortable as well as homey. The food good. What more can one ask of a place to spend all or part of your vacation? P.S. The cookies were exceptional.
