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.
