Our family of four booked a weeklong stay at Blackwater Creek Ranch earlier this year. Driving from Iowa to Wyoming, we were concerned we built the trip up so much in our heads that there was no way the actual vacation could meet our expectations. Luckily, we were wrong.
We loved our time at the ranch. Our cabins, while rustic, were clean and comfortable. The food was incredible (the ranch has a chef this year, as opposed to a cook) and we had a great time completing all of the activities available to us -- horseback riding in the mountains, visiting Cody, whitewater rafting, attending the Cody Rodeo, touring Yellowstone, etc.
It was the staff that made our stay so enjoyable. Johnie and Diana have made it their goal to bring southern hospitality to Wyoming and we think they succeeded. We felt more like family than guests. We enjoyed our time with all of the staff members. The wranglers are a great group of experienced horsemen and horsewomen who had endless patience with us and our kids. Having meals in the lodge was more like an extended family dinner, with the servers getting our picky son to actually eat his salad every night. Of course, he had three S'mores at the campfire later ... :)
It was sad for us to say good-bye because we were not only leaving our vacation behind, but a group of people we now consider family. We hope our paths cross again someday. Trust us when we say this trip is worth it.
