This Rustic Wyoming Lodge Is So Extraordinary, You May Never Want To Leave
When people come to the Cowboy State looking for an extraordinary Wyoming experience, they can’t do much better than a stay at the Medicine Bow Lodge. This rustic ranch is tucked into the Medicine Bow National Forest, offering visitors a wide variety of purely Wyoming activities to choose from, and treating them to sights only seen in this wilderness state. Built over a century ago, it’s an ideal place for an unforgettable getaway.
To find Medicine Bow Lodge, set your GPS for 5556 State Highway 130, Saratoga, Wyoming.
The lodge is surrounded by stately Wyoming mountains including Medicine Bow Peak and Sugar Loaf, to name just two.
Medicine Bow Lodge operated as a camp for hunters and fishermen long before the lodge was built in 1917.
Though the log structure has been improved and added to over the years, it has managed to retain a rustic western feel. Guests are still served in the original dining room with food prepared in the original kitchen, enhancing an authentic experience.
You'll find the inside of the main building just as cozy and inviting as you'd imagined.
Out back, Barrett Creek burbles along, providing a relaxing soundtrack for your stay.
Guests at the lodge stay in private cabins, scattered around the grounds. Every one of them is as rustic and comfortable as the main lodge.
Every cabin has a private bathroom, and some are large enough to accommodate up to eight people.
The goal at Medicine Bow Lodge is to give visitors the ultimate Wyoming ranch experience.
That's why a stable full of horses are kept at the ready to take guests on tours of the local area. Plus, barrel riding and a workshop titled "Roping 101" is offered, too.
There are many other things to do at the lodge as well. It's still a destination for fishing enthusiasts, and the hiking trails can't be beat.
Pottery, volleyball, throwing horseshoes, and target shooting are among other popular activities offered at the lodge.
After a full day of Wyoming adventures, guests gather around the fire, making s'mores and singing along with the campfire songs.
No wonder visitors come and never want to leave!
