Savery chateau / country house description
The Antelope Ranch- A great getaway for a family reunion or a group of friends who love to share the outdoors.
Location: Located near the lush Little Snake River Valley in the midst of historic ranching country, the ranch is 10 miles north of the Colorado Border on the Western Slope of the Continental Divide. Three miles from the Medicine Bow National Forest and surrounded by thousands of acres of public BLM land. The ranch sits in the green valley of the Savery River.
The ranch has rugged sagebrush hills with aspen lined draws leading down to the meadows and river. County road 561N leading out of the town of Savery goes through the property.
House: The cozy ranch house was built in the late 1800's from local logs and sandstone and was the headquarters for several ranching families over the years. Originally a dairy farm, then a cattle and a sheep ranch. I call it a 'huge' small house because it appears deceptively small. It has: a full kitchen, dining room, family room, living room, covered porch, two baths and five or six bedrooms.
There is also lots of room for tents and RV campers. Available for an extra charge is a canvas wall tent and a yurt. The house is very nice for a group of 7-8 people who want to get together and enjoy the outdoors and have a nice place to come back to.
Recreation: Hunting, horseback riding, ATV, snow machine and mountain bike riding (your own horse or equipment), wildlife viewing, fishing and swimming are all here. Private hunting may be arranged on the 320 deeded acres and the surrounding BLM land is available for hunting to the public (the ranch is located in the draw area 82 or the general region W). The area supports elk, mule deer, white tail, antelope, sage grouse, etc.
For birders, the area is also rich with wild birds including many types of raptors. The Savery River is usually stocked and fishing is available on the ranch as well as on miles of state owned river. There are several reservoirs and lakes within 45 minutes of the ranch.
The surrounding area is crisscrossed with dirt tracks and roads providing for plenty of exploration and mountain biking. For those not so outdoorsy, the town of Savery has a nice museum and over the Continental Divide, the towns of Encampment and Saratoga also have museums, shops, restaurants, and a free hot spring.
If you need a Starbucks around the corner to make your life complete; this place isn't for you, but if you like the great outdoors, you will love what this area has to offer.
We also can provide ranch stays (rent rooms not the whole house) or working ranch stays (work in exchange for room and board.

Really charming farmhouse in sunny and private setting
Really charming farmhouse in sunny and private setting
I happened across this rental by accident and am very glad I did. I stayed here for two nights and thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of my stay. The bed and linens were comfortable and inviting, wood burning stove was a great focal point, antiques throughout the home and sunny generous sized front porch from which to enjoy the changing fall colors. This cabin is also in an area that is accessible and pleasurable for walking. Wildlife was everywhere. The owner was generous enough to allow us to use the vegetables from her garden. Everything was spotless and the kitchen was very well stocked. I would highly recommend this rental.

If your idea of a “ranch” is a luxury spa with an old wagon out front, this rental is not for you. If you want to stay on a place that is surrounded by sage brush shrublands full of life, complete with chickens, wonderful vegetable gardens, bugs, cattle, and a 200-year-old log ranch house that has been lived in, not “restored”, with million-dollar views from everywhere, then you will have a wonderful experience at Antelope Ranch in Savery, Wyoming. This piece of Wyoming heaven also includes Lela Emmons, a wonderful host who patiently answers endless questions and is as generous with her property as it is possible to be. The spacious ranch house has homey furniture, rooms with lovely windows, and a big kitchen that is old-fashioned and truly fun to make meals in. A classic example of previous foodies each leaving the larder better than they found it. There are lovely walks and drives in the surrounding area, especially a beautiful river throughout. A truck or four-wheel drive vehicle would help, but is not mandatory. We managed without one. The Museum in Savery shouldn't be missed if you are interested in Western history. Many of the items and exhibits are connected to residents of the Snake River Valley. Original buildings spread around the grounds are extremely interesting. Listing photos and descriptions are very accurate. Property is well-maintained and lovely. Very recommended.
