Here at Goosewing Ranch, we combine the lifestyle of ranching in the Wyoming wilderness with many of the modern refinements that make your visit with us especially enjoyable.
At 7,400 feet, the valley is the host to some of North America’s most spectacular game: elk, moose, mountain sheep, antelope, bear, eagles, geese, cranes, and much more, not to mention fantastic scenery. The Gros Ventre River, home to native cutthroat trout, runs through the meadows of our historic ranch.
Our Jackson Hole dude ranch offers comfortable lodging in eight private guest cabins and three larger 2-bedroom cabins for bigger families. Complimentary wireless internet is provided throughout the Ranch. With its large stone fireplace, the main lodge serves as a central gathering place for dining or relaxing. A loft with a pool table and television overlooks the main room. Fireplaces, wood-stoves, a hot tub and swimming pool add to the cozy atmosphere. A large selection of beer, wine, and liquor compliments an eclectic, seasonal menu.
We invite you to come share this corner of North America’s wildest country just as it has been for over a hundred years – a working ranch reborn as an isolated retreat deep in the Gros Ventre River Valley.
A working ranch reborn as an isolated retreat deep in the Gros Ventre River Valley Wyoming, Goosewing marks the entry point to a protected, pristine wilderness.
There is a bounty of activities to enjoy while staying at our dude ranch in Jackson Hole. Horseback riding is our main focus during summer months. We cater to all riding ability levels and will match the appropriate horse to each guest. Fly fishing is excellent in the area, we provide instruction on our stocked pond and section of the river that flows through the property twice weekly. Take advantage of what our area has to offer, take a white water rafting trip down the snake river or head into the town of Jackson to see a rodeo.
Our dude ranch in Jackson Hole accommodates approximately 30 guests per week, and all accommodations are in private cabins. Each cabin has rustic, yet cozy and comfortable decor. Meals are family style in the main lodge.
When the horseback rides return, the outdoor heated pool, hot tub, brand new sauna and massage room provide excellent relaxation before the scheduled activities begin. Target shooting, archery, roping, horse games, and arts and crafts are only a few of the afternoon activities we provide. Evening activities include line dancing, campfires, cookouts, star gazing, and more.
Dining: Most meals are served family style in the Main Lodge where we have 2 chefs on staff. We are adding a new outdoor kitchen and dining area this year for our guests to enjoy. The new outdoor dining area will feature wood burning ovens, covered seating, and propane heaters. Kid’s options are available and we can accommodate dietary restrictions.
From our herd of 60 horses you will be assigned your own horse for Jackson Hole horseback riding for the duration of your stay. Our head wrangler will match the horse and rider according to ability, physical requirements and horse temperament. Goosewing wranglers are experienced horsemen & women and will instruct you in our arena and on the trail on how to ride well for a memorable Jackson Hole horseback riding experience. If all you want to do is walk and enjoy the scenery, we have the perfect trail; if you want to trot and lope, we have rides appropriate for this as well.
Pack trips are available for all 5 and 10 night stays. A pack trip for 5 night stays begin by spending your first 3 nights at the ranch. Typically you will ride between 7 and 8 hours that day. You will make camp in the wilderness and spend the night staying in canvas wall tents and sleeping on cots. We will book a cabin for you at Jackson’s luxurious Rustic Inn.
