HF Bar Ranch
FULL DESCRIPTION OF LISTING
The Ranch has received placement on the National Register of Historic Places along with being named one of the “1,000 Places to See Before You Die”. Acclaimed in the New York Times Travel Section, Travel & Leisure magazine, Parents magazine, Town & Country magazine and Western Horseman, the Ranch tries to keep a low profile. Nonetheless, Margi was named the 2007 Business Person of the Year for Buffalo, Wyoming and the Ranch was named Landowner of the Year in the region for our conservation efforts and land access granted to the public.

Our cabins were built during
the historic "heyday" of dude ranching and you will find theyare still genuine to that period. The rustic, comfortable nature of each cabin satisfies something
that you have not found at other places, of that, we are quite sure.
With no phones and no TV's in the cabins, it is the perfect setting for your family and friends to be on vacation with each other and to meet and interact with the other guests if you so choose. In fact, the atmosphere on the H F Bar Ranch is so thick with tradition and history, it cannot be replicated anywhere else. It is a uniquely different vacation. When you arrive you will see that this view of Meadowlark and Poster, two cabins on the west side of the grounds, have changed very little in 90 years.
Our guests are lodged in comfortable cabins with living rooms, open fireplaces, private baths and outdoor porches. Our cabins boast plush comfortable quilted beds made of local pine logs. The bathrooms are roomy with plenty of fluffy towels and hot water!! Electric kettles, with all of the fixings for great coffee, teas and cocoa, are available in each cabin as well as glasses, wine openers and blocks of ice that are delivered daily by a horse and wagon to an old-fashioned ice box on each porch. Any special requests such as cribs, mini-fridges or microwaves can be arranged for in advance with the Ranch Office staff. Likewise, we can stock your icebox with drinks and snacks prior to your arrival. Just email or call and we’ll have everything waiting for you.
This winter, we are undertaking a major
renovation of many of the cabins---upgrading bathrooms, recovering furniture, changing the lighting and, in general, doing what Margi calls her “one quarter century overhaul”!! So, old timers look forward to those new changes and all of your new guests just get the bonus of a spiffed up Ranch !
You'll find that eating at the H F Bar is the least of your concerns. The social atmosphere of our service, plus our rustic gourmet style, combined with your friends, both new and old, and family, make each meal on occasion to enjoy.
Please contact us if you or your party have special dietary needs and requests. A fine selection of domestic and foreign wines and beers is available from the Dining Room host , as well as, from the Ranch Store. We will hold it for you in the Dining Room and place it on your table at mealtime.
The Ranch bell rings three times a day calling you to the Dining Room, or the outdoor barbecue, for delectable meals and fine hearty table fare to please most palates.
Our team of gourmet chefs prepare a sundry array of "home cooked" foods, fresh baked goods, sizzling breakfasts, and a "Kiddie Bar" for the young ones (of all ages!!) who just want to eat and run. The Dining Room is a place to relax and refresh yourself , to share the stories of the day and to re-energize for all of the activities ahead.
We want you to completely enjoy your time on the HF Bar Ranch. Dinners are set up so that you can eat leisurely and be out in time for the evening ride. Later in the summer and in September, when the days are shorter, and we shift to afternoon rides, dinner is a bit later and people gather round their tables often with a bottle of wine to mingle with each other. The Dining Room echoes with laughter as people describe their various adventures of the day.
There will also be evening activities to add to your options: guest speakers, movies, cookouts, hayrides and campfires. Of course, your vacation is meant to be rejuvenating as well as invigorating, so free time is always an option.
