This century-old ranch, a highly sought-after wedding venue—actress Allison Williams tied the knot here last year—comes with a jaw-dropping backdrop: 30,000 acres of rolling hills, prairies and panoramic mountain views. A perfect day here might involve sunrise yoga overlooking the Platte River Valley and channeling your inner cowboy with a horseback ride through notable sites like the bison paddock and historic Robber’s Roost Lookout (once rumored to be a hideout for thieves), then retreating to a private teepee at the Trailhead Spa for an afternoon facial—there’s a hops-and-herbs version for the gentlemen—before heading back to your log cabin, where you can squeeze in a cat nap before indulging in a family-style barbecue feast at the ranch’s lively fire pit.
Fur throws, soft suede pillows, and antler chandeliers all amp up the warmth and snuggle factor in the 41 spacious rooms here, a combination of log cabin residences, lodge rooms, and cabin suites. In-room accessories like buffalo nickels on headboards and cowhide leather chairs tip a hat to the Western surroundings, while the hand-hewn exteriors are inspired by the ranch’s original 1884 homestead.
Though the dishes trotted out by the ranch’s five dining venues all have the Rocky Mountain stamp, it’s Creekside Camp, where the star players are a couple of grills, that steals the culinary scene here. A classic dinner spread might consist of hearty treats like carved prime rib, tea-brined chicken, and a sumptuous venison chili, the house chef’s signature dish—all enjoyed beside a campfire.
Nestled in the heart of south central Wyoming, Brush Creek Ranch is situated next to the lush Medicine Bow National Forest. It’s a scenic 3.5-hour drive from Denver International Airport and just an hour from nearby Laramie Airport.
