"The most scenic 50 miles in America" - Teddy Roosevelt

5 STAR Accommodations were great and the hospitality was a whole new level. Absolutely amazing staff with a great facility! Learning how to fly fish was fantastic too thanks Davey!

My wife, mother and I visited the UXU last week and I cannot say enough good things about our vacation. It was everything that I expected from my vacation and when we left the ranch to come home we felt as if we were leaving family.

The staff at the UXU goes out of their way to take care of your wants and needs. I will remember this vacation and the friends we made forever and I hope to visit again soon. Thank you to the staff you do a wonderful job.

“We stayed in Wyoming for two weeks, Wyoming is so fun. We had a good time in Wyoming. The UXU Ranch was so fun. They fed us maybe the best food that I have ever tasted. Mom’s food is good too. … I had the best vacation ever at the UXU Ranch with my family.”

“Allie is the real person in charge (not Joe), Jordan finally taught me how to dance, Jeremy loves my momma, Doug is the coolest person ever, Terry influences weight gain, Lauren is the all time best, and Laney is going to be the best vet ever. Forget me not.”

This was my first time in a dude ranch, and I was definitely lucky to start with this one! The location is magnificent: up in the mountains of the Shoshone National Forest, a big lawn in front of the main lodge; the cabin was cute and spacious ( Mountain Man); food genuine and different for every breakfast and evening. I loved it!

The fun and friendly staff, pampered us every day, making our stay very homey. We went for a horse ride and sat by the fire during the evenings. You cannot go wrong by staying at this place: nice and friendly staff, excellent food, clean rooms and ideal location close to both Cody and the east entrance to the Yellowstone National Park.

Definitely a fun place to have a relaxing western vacation in Wyoming, and to try a horse ride in the countryside or fly fishing with instructor Dave. I highly recommend it.

Michelle Cauhill, Atlanta, Georgia - August 2014

We had a fantastic time at the UXU ranch! By far the best part of our holiday. Sarah was so helpful while planning our little getaway prior to our arrival and all of the staff were so welcoming and friendly during our entire stay.

Our cabin was absolutely gorgeous and the scenery could not be beat! Our fly fishing trip with Davie was fantastic and was the highlight of our trip! I can’t wait to start fly fishing back home! Thanks for getting me hooked! These employees really care for their guests and make you feel very special. For a unique guest experience book yourself in at the UXU!

The staff were unbelievably hospitable and went out of their way to make us feel at home. We had been in somewhat of a rush for our trip and when we got to the ranch and sat at the patio for dinner, the calmness and scenery immediately soothed us and I had one of my most enjoyable dinners in a while. We had many great interactions.

Jay Davis - Seattle Washington - August 2014

We stayed in the Lewis cabin and it certainly exceeded our expectations with the furnishings. Highly recommended for those who want to stay near the Eastern entrance of Yellowstone.

Dige & Wes Cook - September 2014

UXU has the best service I have seen!! They do an absolutely wonderful job of making you feel like one of the family on the ranch! What a great experience we had. Great rooms, Great view and super friendly horses to love on! My twins that are 8 were in seventh heaven. Thank you, Thank you UXU staff!!!

Cheryl Reed, Sonoma County, California - August 2014

“Thank you – had a wonderful time! The highlight of the trip! Of all the places we visited and the things we saw we enjoyed our week at the ranch the most!”

Stephanie and Drew, July 2014

“Thanks for the hospitality. We'll never forget the folks we met and the friendships we made, not too mention the beautiful scenery and the nights around the campfire.”

Maggi and Reagan Hutchason, June 2014

“I'd recommend this place to anyone! It was the best time ever! You can't beat the scenery, the food and the staff was more than helpful and hospitable. There's nothing else you'll ever do that can come anywhere close to a vacation like this.”

Barry and Carol Nies, June 2014

“We had our doubts at first about taking this kind of vacation as we'd never been anywhere like this or done this kind of thing before. We're so glad we went ahead and did it. The staff were wonderful and we never felt awkward or out of place even though we've rarely been outside of the city. Thanx alot to the good folks at UXU! It was beautiful!”

Adalbert and Melanie Windisch, July 2014

“ There just aren't the words to describe the vacation. No, wait it wasn't just a vacation, it was an adventure. We've made friends that we'll never forget and memories to last a lifetime. We've never seen so much wildlife, took so many photos, ate such good food and met so many good, decent people. The trip to Yellowstone was a once in a lifetime experience. Loved It!!”

Billy, Stacy, Miracle and Jon Christian, June 2014

I know others are going to be reading this so I just want to say, if you've never done anything like this previously, you have to take the plunge and just do it! We can summ up the experience in one word... “Spectacular!”

Brad and Michelle Fleenor, July 2014

One of the most unique and pleasurable experiences our entire family has ever had. The UXU Ranch was clean, peaceful and hospitable, the food some of the best I've eaten.

The staff were wonderful, the weather beautiful and the scenery absolutely breathtaking. The kids were never bored and forgot all about their video games and texting habits. I could barely believe it! It's one of the best things we've ever done as a family. We'll be back again and again.

The Millers, San Francisco, California - July 2014

“We came to have an authentic Western experience and we were not disappointed in the least. Between the fishing, riding, rafting, the wildlife, the trips to Yellowstone, the Cody Rodeo, the food and the gracious staff, we were never left with nothing to do. We only wish we could stay forever!”

Bill & Melinda Carter, June 2014
