Make new friends.
The whole LRR team was so friendly that we really felt like being at home. Your food is amazing!!! Martin says that he will have a hard time to get down to his former weight.

Our kitchen prepares delicious entrees, fresh salads, ranch baked breads, fruits and vegetables, and desserts which keep you coming back for more. We're happy to accommodate special diets with advance notice and vegetarian alternatives are available at every meal.

Beautiful views, good company, and mouth watering food.

The dining room offers views of snow-capped Rawah peaks and the Laramie river. Large tables provide ample room for larger families.

The crew eats with our guests so you'll find yourself surrounded by new friends.

Delicious treats from our baker.
I have to say that although the riding was fantastic, the scenery stunning, and the company the best, we will long be recounting the different and totally delicious desserts we had each meal!


The Lodge

The lodge circa 1950.

Our historic lodge was built in the late 1880's with a spacious living room, beautiful stone fireplace and a dining room which overlooks the Rawah peaks.

Pictured here in the 1950's, the UT Bar Ranch hosted guests from across the country and around the world from 1937 to 1971.

The lodge today.

Our lodge maintains the charm of the original structure while providing guests with the modern comforts including private bathrooms, climate controls in each room, and handicapped accessibility.

You'll find ample room to relax and unwind.

The living room is a favorite place for playing cards, reading, and relaxing by the fireplace. There are ample public spaces for guests to mingle with each other and with our staff.

Comfort and charm.

Lodge rooms offer more community than a private cabin can offer. You can read quietly by the fire when everyone else has gone off to bed or come down to the kitchen for an early cup of coffee or tea. Each room has its own unique character - some are small and cozy while others are larger and can accommodate whole families. Daily maid service leaves you more time to get out and enjoy the west.

The Cabins

Hand made log cabins circa 1947.

Five historic log cabins provide the balance of the accommodations at the Laramie River Dude Ranch. One and two bedroom units are scattered on the bank of the river and along LaGarde Creek just across the walking-bridge from the lodge. Originally constructed of materials cut from local forests, these cabins recall a time when pioneers literally built their homes by hand.

Your cookie jar is bottomless!

LRR's log cabins provide similar amenities to those found in the lodge. Fresh flowers and your own personal cookie jar are freshened daily when your room is cleaned. Each cabin has a comfortable screened-in porch in which to relax or entertain friends.

One-bedroom units have one built-in queen and one built-in twin bed. They are quite comfortable for couple and families with just one child. Our two-bedroom units have one room with two built-in twins and a second room with a king bed. With advance notice we can reconfigure the second room to have two twin beds as well.

Thanks for the ride of a lifetime. Your operation is an exceptional statement of excellence from the stable to the kitchen, right down to the cabins. Thanks for helping us to 'stop and smell the sage'.
