The Wood River Ranch consists of 2,200+/- total acres (1,000+/- deeded) lying 19 miles south of Meeteetse which makes it a comfortable 50 to 60 minutes from Cody. The Wood River passes through the lower reaches of the ranch for two miles providing exceptional trout fishing as well as irrigation water for approximately 400 acres of hay meadows and pasture. The main building compound is located above the meadows and a short distance from the county road. This exquisitely executed headquarters includes a magnificent lodge, two guest houses offering ten comfortable bedrooms, most with private baths, a managers home, and a large barn/equipment shop. These buildings are thoughtfully designed and of exceptional quality - all of a common vernacular. The land rises fairly dramatically from this more pastoral setting to the modest - but again exquisitely designed - owners residence that is well removed and occupies a prime ridgetop setting. The ranch climbs from here up through a series of ridges and small valleys into some truly picturesque and wild country that represents some of the finest elk habitat to be found in the state of Wyoming. There are springs, a trout pond, a rustic cabin and small streams as well as a pleasing combination of timber, aspens and open parks impressive country indeed! This part of the ranch encompasses 1,000+/- acres of landlocked state land and a small BLM lease and adjoins the Shoshone National Forest. This represents the core of one of the finest family or corporate retreats we have ever seen. Since the ranch is currently being operated as a well-regarded guest ranch and hunting lodge, it also has two hunting camps inside the Shoshone National Forest and additional private leases which significantly expand the hunting and fishing resource.
