Welcome to Horse Creek, Wyoming, the land of wide-open spaces, and welcome to Horse Creek Cattle Company, home of great expansive views and wondrous wildlife. This 60,000-acre working cattle ranch, located 30 miles northwest of Cheyenne on Wyoming State Highway 211, is nestled in the heart of historic ranching country with rich hay meadows and the beautiful, mountainous terrain of the Laramie Range. Many miles of well-maintained private ranch roads lead to valleys filled with wildflowers, aspen groves, and shy, wild animals much as they were a century or more ago—a great way to capture the spirit of the West. We invite you to be our guest.
This ranch is also home to over a dozen picturesque lakes—a virtual paradise for the fly-fishing enthusiast. The evenings are enhanced by spectacular sunsets, which are best enjoyed around a large rock fire pit. When the sky fades to darkness, this setting offers something city folk rarely, if ever, see—a night sky filled with stars, a planet or two, and twinkling satellites you can view with the naked eye.
Built in 1893, the “Stone House” has been fully renovated to its authentic grandeur. All 5 guest bedrooms/suites and 4 bathrooms, accommodating up to 11 guests, portray the comfortable elegance of the 19th century. The main floor kitchen, dining room and sitting room warm guests with classic western furniture, paintings and sculptures.
Most magnificent in the Stone House is the Great Room. This 2000 square foot entertainment and dining room captures the ranch’s essence. Spectacular taxidermy, all acquired on the ranch itself, accent this room. Guests enjoy relaxing around the 25 foot floor-to-ceiling stone fireplace or the granite bar—a picture perfect place to enjoy a meal or relax with a drink. (Room accommodates up to 80 people.)
The Stone House and all its surroundings can be your home away from home for $1200 a night, 2-night minimum. Guests may also opt to have their meals prepared for an additional cost. Special events, such as weddings or retreats, are also available. Please call for pricing.
This property, this home, was built in 1893 by homesteaders Donald and Jane Clark. They also owned the land we acquired as well. The family had a large falling out and had to sell the property and my dad and I were fortunate enough to be the buyers. We have been cleaning up the property and renovating the home since day one. We are both very passionate about the land and about our guest home and there is so much history behind it all, it is nice to have something to show for, not only our hard work, but for the hard work the homesteaders put in before us.
The old, rustic touch, definitely, was what made us fall in love with this home. It has all of the original stone walls (about 2 feet thick) and we remodeled it to look almost identical to what it did when it was originally built. When we acquired the Stone House it was falling apart, but we did everything we could to keep the historic look continuing on.
Can't save enough good things about this place. Gorgeous doesn't even cover it! Everyone was so kind and helpful. The food was wonderful ( thanks Che)! Very clean and cozy... Home away from home! Can't wait to go back and visit!
The hosts were very thoughtful and accommodating. Our party included an elderly man who could not walk. Yet Dave made arrangements to take us out fishing at a private pond. It was the highlight of the year for this man. The ranch has beautiful scenery, wonderful trout ponds, and excellent accommodations. The food was superb. Best of all, the hosts are very engaging people.
