Old West Experience

In 1917, Medicine Bow Lodge first opened near Saratoga, Wyoming. We are proud to share great mountain views, rushing streams, towering fir trees and a true Old West experience for visitors to this beautiful part of our state. Fishing, hiking, horseback riding and evening campfires are among the memorable activities at the family-owned Lodge.

An Array of Activities

Guests may choose to arrange for overnight horseback pack trips in the mountains or visit scenic or historic sites in the Medicine Bow National Forest. In the nearby towns of Saratoga, Encampment and Savery there are museums, art galleries and shopping venues reflecting the flavor of this special locale. Also, in Saratoga are the natural springs at the famous Hot Pool, open year-round.

Cozy Cabins and Delicious Meals

The recently refurbished Lodge features vintage log walls, comfortable furnishings, a huge stone fireplace and space for games, entertainment and dancing as well as Internet access. As many as fifteen guests can enjoy all amenities and three delicious home cooked meals are served daily each day in the Lodge dining room. Carefully selected fresh produce, meats and seafood are complemented by breads and desserts prepared from treasured family recipes. Cozy cabins are rustic but welcoming and activities for young folks are offered for outdoor fun and arts and crafts. The timeless style of the west is reflected by the courteous and competent staff that assist with all aspects of the Medicine Bow Lodge experience.

What sets MBL apart from other guest ranches is the personal touch and attention that each and every guest will experience during their stay. From the interaction with Debbie and Tim themselves to our amazing team members. We want this to be an extraordinary opportunity for them to unplug, unwind, to truly enjoy and reconnect with their families.

The amenities are wide-ranging from the gourmet home-cooked meals, to the exquisite beauty they will be surrounded by as they ride the trails on horseback, hike, fish, canoe, try their hand at archery, and target shooting it’s all here! The lodge is a beautiful place to relax and unwind, play a little pool, or curl up with a book from our library. We want these photos and videos to reflect our belief family time is precious and this is the perfect adventure for all families- large and small. “Keeping It Real & Authentic” captures the essence of MBL.
