Photos and Description of this 5 bedroom holiday lodge in Star Valley - Lanes Creek Ranch
A house and property big enough for your family or corporate
Enjoy your own private dude ranch vacation in the heart of the West, less than an hour from Jackson Hole, Wyoming and 1.5 hours from Grand Teton National Park. Butch Cassidy and his infamous gang once visited this historic ranch—with an original homesteaders barn dating back to 1870s. The spacious 5,000-square-foot, 4-bedroom (not including a sleeping loft), 3-bath lodge-style home has enough room for 14. It has a spacious kitchen, large dining room, perfect kid sleeping quarters, and a game room with ping -pong and pool.
But the real action is outside the lodge’s front door.
Bordering the Caribou National Forest, with miles of trails, you can explore the 2,200-acre property (600 acres of BLM land) on horseback or ATV (with local connections for rentals) or by foot. Fish more than 3 miles of Lane’s Creek, or practice your fishing skills (and take a dip) at the spring-fed, trout stocked pond. Enjoy the wide-open views and wildflowers by day, cook outside on the grill, soak in the hot tub, and sit under the stars and roast marshmallows by one of the outdoor fire pits by night. Leave the ranch for golf in nearby Star Valley, and visit Jackson Hole for world-class recreation, shopping, and dining. This is your chance to customize your own private guest ranch vacation and spend some quality time with friends and family.

Why Bret King chose Star Valley
1,600 acres bordered by National Forest will give you and yours plenty of elbow room to enjoy the great outdoors. You can ride horses and ATVs right on the ranch or in the forest, spot wildlife or plentiful hawks and eagles from the cabin deck, enjoy the wide-open views from the outdoor hot tub or just sit and relax with no interruptions from the outside world.
If you have riders, including young ones, who want to learn to ride, we have an outdoor riding arena that makes riders feel safer and more secure. This is where our own kids and grandkids learn to ride. For the more adventurous, try your hand at steer roping. Local cowboys and cowgirls come to our place a couple times every week to practice for the local rodeos and you are welcome to watch or join in.
You can bring your own horses or ATV's or we can help arrange for some for you.
Just down the road a piece is beautiful Star Valley, Wyoming with blue-ribbon trout fishing and golf at 4 different golf courses, all reasonably priced. Or head into Jackson Hole with its world class recreation and beauty for the Grand Tetons, Snake River and shopping and restaurants. Hire a guide and fish the local river and streams or, if you have the experience, rent your own raft and do either a scenic float trip or experience the thrill of a white water run.
We have a ranch manager who lives on the ranch about a half mile from the main house. He'll be there to help you with anything you might need, including leading an evening horse ride if you like.
You'll have no end to the activities (or solitude, if you prefer) if you are staying at the Lanes Creek Ranch. We have enjoyed this property ourselves for many years and our children, and now grandchildren, have great memories from our time here and now we're willing to share with you.
