Debbie and Tim Bishop bought Medicine Bow Lodge in 2002. Located in the heart of Medicine Bow National Forest, is not only stunning with a rustic flair, but it is also rich in history. The original lodge was built in early 1917. The original kitchen and dining room are still intact and functioning for Chef Debbie to serve our guests homemade, delicious meals.
Medicine Bow Lodge operates as a guest dude ranch during late spring, summer, and fall. The ranch is known for its diverse horseback riding program. Tim, along with his staff of handpicked wranglers go out of their way to make certain the young, and young at heart feel confident and comfortable in the saddle. The trails take you through the pristine snowy range of mountains and meadows giving you breathtaking views wherever you look. All our guests are welcome to learn and participate in the care of the horses. They can learn to groom, oil the saddle, saddle, and feed their horse while staying here. Medicine Bow Lodge & Adventure Guest Ranch is an all-inclusive ranch, with all activities and meals included in your stay. Along with our horseback riding program, there are many activities for you and your family to enjoy. We offer guided hiking and fishing excursions, canoeing, archery, roping 101, horseshoe pit, target shooting, and much more! Every evening you can sit by the campfire and have some S’mores – who doesn’t love S’mores!
It is Debbie and Tim’s wish that you have an opportunity to let their professional, and friendly staff serve you well. It is our every intention that you relax, unplug and reconnect with your loved ones in this serenely beautiful environment. So – are you ready for an adventure that you and your family will never forget?
