The small ranching community of Ten Sleep, Wyoming is a true example of western lifestyle. The area is full of history and is recognized as being the site of many historic battlegrounds between Indian tribes and the white man. Among those sites are the Bates Battle site, an engagement in which the Arapahoe were defeated by a coalition composed of U.S. troops and the Shoshone. Located on Red Reflet Ranch is the famous site of the Spring Creek Raid Here, cattle ranchers and sheep herders fought a bloody battle over grazing rights.
Arriving at the distinctly modern Red Reflet Ranch feels as though you’re stumbling upon a James Bond hideout. It is quite striking. Besides being a luxurious and gorgeous resort to put up your boots for a few days, Red Reflet is a phenomenal place for guests to immerse themselves in all the rugged activities that are so quintessentially western. While luxurious, Red Reflet isn’t a “City Slickers” dude ranch. There are no rhinestone cowboys. This place is home to real cowboys doing arduous labor. To get a taste of what that means, guest can jump into the mix of a cattle drive or branding activity. Moving a 200 stubborn Black Angus a few miles down a dusty road isn’t an easy task.
Meals are a true highlight at Red Reflet and consist mostly of locally-grown-and-raised food. Yet despite the delicious chow, the view is what it’s all about. Situated just above a lake, the giant open-air dining room makes you feel like you’re on top of the world. Red Reflet is a ranch for the senses. It’s where a few hardworking individuals have mastered the art of hospitality to showcase some of Wyoming’s most breathtaking scenery and recreational offerings. Year round, guests can wake up in well-appointed luxury cabins surrounded by million dollar views of the red and coral-colored Chugwater formation sandstone cliffs and the contrasting blue and white snow-capped peaks of the Bighorn National Forest.
Each staff member is among the best in their respective fields–whether it’s horseback riding, range shooting, fly-fishing, aerial sight-seeing or the art of preparing world-class cuisine.
