Red Reflet Ranch
Located six miles southeast of Ten Sleep, the Red Reflet Ranch can only be described as one of the most complete diversified recreational ranches that we have had the honor of representing. It operates on over 28,500 acres, which consist of a series of large deeded tracts (nearly 6,600 acres) with critical resources tied together with thousands of acres of public lands on which the ranch has grazing privileges. The lower end of the ranch adjacent to the paved highway from Ten Sleep contains the 5,000 foot paved and lighted airstrip, fuel depot, hangar and two houses for staff or pilots. The heart of the ranch includes the lodge and guest facilities, 580+/- acres of productive irrigated meadows, and a complete set of operating improvements and staff housing to support both a 500 animal unit cattle operation and a highly successful and profitable guest ranch. The ranch also includes stables and an indoor arena that support both the guest ranch and an equine training operation. The ranch rises from there to the very top of the Bighorn Mountains - an elevation change of approximately 3,800 feet. The ranch owns thousands of acres of deeded lands on top of the mountains that support summer grazing for the cattle operation as well as a location for a comfortable off the grid cabin for the use of the ranch guests. While the current owners do not offer hunting as part of the guest ranch experience, these lands offer extensive private hunting opportunities for deer and elk for the current owner and their friends. In summary Red Reflet currently offers a viable livestock operation and a profitable guest ranch business. It is important to note, however, that the facilities were designed to equally accommodate a family or corporate retreat as they include multiple free-standing homes and a magnificent lodge with an impressive owners suite on the top floor.
