The Perfect Get Away - Bull Moose Retreat
average rating of 5.0 based on 9 reviews

Perfect for a large family gathering

  • 5 of 5

Our family, 22 adults, 7 kids stayed at the Bull Moose lodge for 5 days. The place held our attendees with room to spare. The kitchens were fully stocked with pots, pans, dishes to facilitate any large crowd. Multiple grills, the firepit, horseshoes were all utilized. The garage was a favorite hangout with 6 picnic tables plus other tables, chairs to handle large group meals, games.

But best of all was Linda's help on the trip pre-planning. She made many recommendations for activities, accommodated early arrival, late departure and was a pleasure to work with.

The house is away from the crowds of Cody but close enough to shop and enjoy the town's activities. And, the back porch... with the view and quiet. A great vacation.

We hosted a family reunion at Bull Moose Retreat and couldn't be happier with the accomodations. The houses were beautiful and well stocked with whatever you may need for hosting a large group. The gathering spaces were amazing for every part of the day and a memorable time was had by all. The owners couldn't have been sweeter or more accomodating everyone enjoyed the endless views and beautiful weather this place is a must for large groups . Thank you so much for sharing this little piece of heaven.

Perfect home for large family - Jackson/Samford/Wade families loved our stay!

  • 5 of 5

This was the PERFECT getaway for our family of 25 who were celebrating my parents 50th wedding anniversary! I can not say enough about how wonderful, nice and accommodating the owners were during our entire stay. This was a perfect location, close to Cody (small town), but great for day trips to Yellowstone and other fun outings. The home is large and the view from the back of the house with the mountains in the background is beautiful and the view of the stars at night are amazing! I am a travel agent, so I have seen many homes, condos, resorts, etc. and this is definitely in my Top 10!

Joe and Betty Schultz....born and raised in Cody Country

  • 5 of 5

We gathered our scattered family to celebrate our 60th Anniversary...(our little wedding reception was held at Irma Flat Club House just up the road) Our stay at Bull Moose Retreat was so comfortable. The facility was perfect for a happy time with our children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. The owners answered our every question and request. The garage worked for an ice cream social for friends and extended family.

We could look west from the Retreat to review family history from the McMillin, Schultz and Christler ancestors. McMillins lived on Poverty Flats, just up the way in 1916. There is a photo of Folsom on the steps of Irma Flat School at age 7 or 8. Pete was guiding and doing rope trips at Valley Ranch in 1926 or 27. Christlers bought Castle Rock Ranch in 1932 and soon filed on a homestead right behind the rock. Be the time we were in high school Betty lived on the place where the Dale Millers later resided and Joe lived in a house on the right side of the Southfork road, not half a mile from Bull Moose that had been the Nordquist place. We love the Southfork...can you tell.

The perfect place for a family reunion

  • 5 of 5

Three things stand out about the Bull Moose Retreat:

The house itself, which is every bit as nice and appealing as pictured; the spectacular scenery, from watching the sunset over the Absaroka Mountain range to discovering hidden gems of nature on a morning walk around the Wyoming landscape; and the warmth and hospitality of the owners, Rick and Linda.

Our family of 22 – ranging in age from 76 to 6 — booked the Bull Moose Retreat sight unseen for mid July, 2010. You just never know if the website photos pictured are what you’re actually going to experience. Upon arrival, this place was every bit as advertised and more. It was the perfect venue for our family reunion, as families gathered from Florida, Virginia, Missouri and Illinois. Nearby Cody is a unsung treasure, and driving “America’s 52 most scenic miles” into Yellowstone was a pleasure not a chore.

Throughout the entire week, Rick and Linda were the perfect hosts: There if we needed them but keeping a respectful distance. We’d return in a heartbeat. We highly recommend this place — you won’t be disappointed.
