Welcome to Crossed Sabres Ranch, established in 1898, and located a
short 8 miles from the east entrance to Yellowstone. This positioning
provides guests easy access to one of our Nation’s most dramatic National
Parks as well as the opportunity to experience many other activities such
as the famous Cody Night Rodeo which takes place every night during the
summer months. For the outdoor lover, the ranch sits on the banks of the
North Fork of the Shoshone River, home to world class fly fishing and
coveted Yellowstone cutthroat trout. Sitting within the 2.2 to 2.5 million acre
Shoshone National Forest just outside Yellowstone, guests can experience
an abundance of wildlife viewing opportunities without stepping a foot
off the ranch. Crossed Sabres Ranch has a comfortable main lodge, a
western saloon, and 19 cabins situated around Libby Creek, which
casually meanders through the Ranch property. Whether you head out for
an all-day horseback ride, spend your day reeling in monster trout, or
simply relax on your front porch to the sounds of Libby Creek, Crossed
Sabres Ranch is sure to create lasting memories and the vacation of a
lifetime for you and your family.
Crossed Sabres Ranch offers western ranch living with modern amenities to make your stay as comfortable as possible. Our one or two bedroom cabins have carpeted floors, private bathrooms, electric heat, and front porches with log furniture to enjoy the grandeur of our western landscape. To enhance your western experience and allow you to fully enjoy our beautiful setting, all of our cabins are free of both telephones (both landline and mobile as we have no cell service) and television. Your cabin will be cleaned once daily by our staff to provide fresh towels and linens if needed.
Our 6000 square foot lodge is centrally located within the ranch. The lodge consists of our large dinning hall, western saloon and game room — a great place to kick back at the end of the day and share your stories of adventure — as well as a comfy great room with fireplace and library. In the library, we have a computer for your use that has limited internet to check emails, flights, weather, etc. as needed. No video, music, or heavy data streaming is available. Additionally we have a ranch store with a wide array of western gear, Crossed Sabres clothing, hand made jewelry, and more! A landline telephone is also available for guest use.
While at the ranch, you certainly won’t be going hungry. Our hearty western ranch cuisine is sure to keep you going as you experience everything the ranch has to offer. Wake up to a ranch breakfast of overnight french-toast, pinwheels omelettes, or homemade cinnamon roles that are to die for. For those wishing for something on the lighter side: cereal, fresh fruit, and pastries are always available. For lunch, try a monster buffalo burger with a fresh salad or stuff together the best taco you can with all of our fixings from our taco bar.
Dinner is the social meal. Recap the day’s events in a casual environment as you enjoy entrees like melt-in-your-mouth ribs, Chef Mary’s famous pot roast, or a full-spread Thanksgiving meal on Thursday nights. When you’re not enjoying meals in the lodge, you’ll be enjoying meals like babyback ribs with cornbread at our weekly BBQ. While sitting outside around the camp fire, you can take in the beautiful weather and huge mountain views. Find yourself hungry in-between meals? Dig into our bottomless cookie jar filled with an assortment of cookies made fresh daily.
Your stay at the ranch will be centered around horseback riding. Our
riding is catered to your skill level and desires: be it a lesson in our
arena, a short morning or afternoon ride, or an all-day ride with a packed
lunch to explore beautiful meadows and high mountain views. We also
offer world class fishing, Yellowstone tours, rafting, and a trip into Cody
to experience the rodeo. We encourage families to spend time together,
however we do offer a full kids program.
