Hotel Overview

Sense of Place

Nestled deep in the scenic landscapes of Gros Ventre River Valley in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, Goosewing Ranch is surrounded by diverse and beautiful terrain, with the lush Grand Teton National Park close by, where the flowing Gros Ventre River passes, with majestic mountains in the distance.

Rooms at Goosewing Ranch

The handful of cosy cabins feature ranch-themed decor and are furnished with high wooden ceilings and exposed log walls, with added character from the animal-themed features, creating a warming, cosy ambience. The cabins are fitted with king-size beds and spacious bathrooms equipped with baths and showers.

The larger Pioneer cabins include an additional bedroom fitted with a queen-size bed and bunk beds, and have spectacular views of the ranch and the epic surrounding wilderness, or stay in one of the handcrafted, custom-built wagons, which come with a king-sized bed and a dresser, with a separate private bathroom cabin.

Food & Drink

Meals are served family style in the main lodge, with an outdoor dining area with covered seating and heaters also available. Start your morning with a hearty breakfast of eggs, bacon and homemade pastries before your morning ride. Enjoy a warming lunch at the ranch, and for guests on morning hacks, a fulfilling trailside picnic lunch is on offer.

Dinners are themed, with a variety of different cuisines available throughout your stay, including Prime Rib night, French night, Cowboy night (steaks) and Angler night (fish), all complemented with a wide selection of refreshing beverages. An open fire cookout also takes place once a week, where you can experience a feast under the stars while enjoying the evening entertainment.


Relax after a busy day at the main lodge, featuring cosy sofas and a large stone fireplace that creates a homely atmosphere. Settle down with a book from the library, or head up to the loft and play a game of pool with your fellow travellers.

Soothe your muscles in the heated pool, the sauna or the invigorating hot tub.

Activities at Goosewing Ranch

Once your horse is personally selected for you, you can take part in a variety of rides, including slow trails, loping, trotting and rides of 2, 4 and 6 hours, including daily rides in the Bridger Teton National Forest. Adults-only rides, kids-only rides and family rides are also available. Due to the uneven terrain, you will not get to gallop here. This ranch is good for riders of all levels, but experienced riders might not be tested. There's also cattle work, barrel racing, horse swimming and a selection of riding games.

The ranch has plenty to keep you busy if you are not riding too. Explore the lush forest by foot on a guided hike, or on exhilarating mountain bike or ATV adventures. Go fly-fishing in the nearby river, go white water rafting or try archery. You can also head into Jackson to shop, browse the art galleries or watch the rodeo. It's even possible to visit the mighty Yellowstone National Park on a day trip.

Practical information:
The ranch is open seasonally between June and September.
There are set arrival dates and a minimum-night stay applies.
