1. Vee Bar Guest Ranch, 38 Vee Bar Ranch Road, Laramie
The Vee Bar Family Ranch is set in the scenic Wyoming countryside near the Medicine Bow National Forest outside of Laramie. This working dude ranch is on the National Register of Historic Places. Whether you choose a traditional lodge room, riverside suite, or private cabin, it's a quaint, cozy, and quiet spot, just the place for romance.
2. Mountain Meadow Cabins, 3519 HWY-130, Centennial
The cute little cabins at the Mountain Meadow resort are tailor-made for a relaxing getaway for two. The rustic exteriors belie the modern interiors which include kitchens and bathrooms as part of the private amenities inside each one. Venture outside for a peaceful walk in the Snowy Range wilderness, then head back to your cabin to warm up and relax by the heat of the fire.
3. The Hideout Lodge & Guest Ranch, 3170 Road 40 ½, Shell
Once you've stayed at this hideout, it might very well become your favorite getaway. Located on a working ranch, the Hideout Lodge is a bit more upscale than some cabin accommodations. You can opt for a basic two-room guest cabin or upgrade to a casita or even a full-sized home. Take advantage of the numerous outdoor activities by day, then enjoy a gourmet meal in the grand dining room before retiring to your lush lodging. This is one Wyoming resort that offers both luxury and rustic comfort.
4. Bearlodge Mountain Resort, 1615E Cleveland Street, Sundance
This rustic resort is a delightful surprise just outside of Sundance at the base of Bear Lodge Mountain, especially if you thought you'd have to head much further west or to a larger city for accommodations of this caliber. Tucked into a quiet setting perfect for wildlife spotting while taking a stroll, the private cabins are equipped with kitchens for making a romantic dinner for two, but the resort is just a short drive from town if you prefer dining out.
5. Outlaw Hideout Cabins, 2411 Squaw Creek Road, Lander
If your idea of a romantic vacation includes staying in a cozy log cabin with a spectacular view of the Wind River Mountains, you'll want to head to Lander and the Outlaw Hideout. Located on a working ranch and built from timber harvested from the property, the lodgings at this resort are the epitome of rustic and ideal for romantic vacation.
6. Shoshone Lodge and Guest Ranch, 349 North Fork Highway, Cody
Just outside of Yellowstone and less than 40 miles from Cody you'll find a lodge and a collection of cabins in the woods. The main lodge at this resort was built back in the 1920s and serves as a gathering place for guests. Other than stopping in for delicious home-cooked meals in the rustic dining room, you'll probably spend most of your time taking walks among the trees, wildlife spotting, or cocooning yourselves away in your quaint and comfortable cabin.
7. The Lodge at Jackson Hole, 80 Scott Lane, Jackson
If you prefer swanky over rustic, you'll want to make reservations right away at the Lodge at Jackson Hole. It's located within the city limits, but with towering pines everywhere you look and mountain views in the distance, you'd never know it. The rooms are 5-star, and there are spa-treatment rooms on-site as well as a fitness center, Jacuzzi, and an all-season heated pool. The ultimate in luxury, the Lodge does an excellent job at pampering guests and still retaining the western flavor of Wyoming.
