Sheridan Lodge Rental Photos and Description

The Lodge Sleeps 10 People And has 4 Bathrooms With Expansive Mountain Views

The lodge has a history of offering high end services as a previously Orvis Endorsed Fly Fishing Lodge in addition to hosting members of a private gun club who enjoyed driven pheasant shoots. Today you can enjoy the lodge as your own private home on our 3,000 acre ranch that the Wallop family has owned since 1889.

In our own travels, we feel that one of the most important parts of any lodging experience is where we sleep. Our beds have high count sheets and fluffy down comforters assuring you one of the best night's sleep you've had in a long time. Sweet dreams are sure to come your way after a fun day of activities or just sitting on the porch reading and relaxing.

About Sandra Wallop

Noll Wallop, the 8th Earl of Portsmouth, purchased Canyon Ranch from Bear Davis in 1889 and since that time the Wallop family has loved and tended to this sacred piece of ground. It is a true blessing that over a century later we are honored to live on the ranch and continue to take care of it.

In the early 20th century Noll and Buffalo Bill had shooting contests at the ranch where the lore tells that Noll out-shot Buffalo Bill. Another famous guest was Theodore Roosevelt who stopped to visit Noll as he was traveling through the Wild West on his quest to preserve America's most beautiful lands. It was during this visit that President Roosevelt determined that the Big Horn Mountains would become designated and protected declaring the area the Big Horn National Forest.

The Wallop family is rich with history in the area and in the State of Wyoming. The stories are numerous and if you are interested in hearing more we'd be happy to share while you are staying at the ranch.

Why Sandra Wallop chose Big Horn National Forest

Canyon Ranch Lodge sleeps 10 and has 4 bathrooms with an industrial style kitchen that will appeal to the gourmet in your family. The views are stunning and the play in the Big Horn Mountains is even better. Sitting on the porch at the lodge will be permanently etched in your memory whether you are having a rest, reading a book, or dining with your family.

If the Lodge is too large for your party and want something a bit smaller we have the Hay Meadow House which is an elegant family style home and is VRBO listing 569240. Additionally, we do have other rental options available on the ranch if the Lodge or Hay Meadow House have already been rented.

What makes this lodge unique

As the home of the oldest Polo Club in America, the Big Horn Polo Club was started in the early 1900's by the Wallop and Moncrieffe families at the Polo Ranch near Big Horn which is adjacent to Canyon Ranch. The Wallop and Moncrieffe descendants established one of the finest lines of horses that were provided to the Queen of England in her efforts to battle the Boer War. These Wyoming bred and trained horses were prepared for the battlefield through the game of polo assuring the Queen of brave equine soldiers in the field.

Today, a visitor can enjoy a game of polo at the Big Horn Polo Club every weekend during June, July, August, and over Labor Day weekend. World Class Polo has taken hold in Big Horn at the Flying H Polo club at the neighboring ranch where Patrons, their players, and grooms from all over the world play very fast and impressive high goal polo every week during July and August. If you like to gold the Powder Horn Golf Club is a short drive from the ranch offering a highly rated 18 and 27 hole play. Additionally, there is an 18 hole Municipal Golf Course which is further from the ranch. Each Golfing option offers magnificent mountain views.

The Sheridan and Johnson County area has many historic Indian battle sites of the late 19th century. These include Fort Phil Kearny, the Fetterman Masacre, and the Wagon Box Fight. The Little Bighorn Battlefield in Montana, the site of Custer's Last Stand, is only about an hour drive from the ranch. The Bradford Brinton Memorial and Western Art Museum is an absolute must see and only minutes from the ranch. King's Museum, adjacent to King's Saddlery in downtown Sheridan, houses an incredible collection of saddles and other Western memorabilia. The Historic Sheridan Inn was the site of auditions for the Buffalo Bill's Wild West Show. This distinctive 'House of 69 Gables', has house many famous people including Earnest Hemingway.

Canyon Ranch itself has hosted many famous guests of its own over the 120+ years.

Family reunion at the Lodge

  • 5 of 5

A lot of planning went into a family get-together in Big Horn - We had relatives from FL., OH, TX and Colorado - Ten in one family stayed at the Lodge, the others elsewhere in Big Horn, but we had most of our meals, games and relaxing time at the Lodge. It was perfect for everyone - from a 3 yr old to grandparents. 6 small children, plus teens had so much fun running around outside and playing outdoor games, hiking, and exploring - We could join in or sit on the very comfortable and shaded porch and watch the activity - with the gorgeous view of the Bighorns as a backdrop. The lodge was comfortable - plush linens on all the beds, plenty of bathrooms, and a completely outfitted commercial kitchen for big group meals. The property was very clean, well-cared for, and durable finishes made it a perfect place for the kids. The gathering spaces were large and ideal for our group. The hosts did everything possible to make our stay the best - The kids who had never been "west", said it was the "best vacation ever". The ranch has such a rich history, and there is so much to see and do in the Sheridan/Big Horn area, that this was an ideal spot for a base.

The Canyon Ranch in Big Horn

  • 5 of 5

There probably are more beautiful, quiet, and perfect places but I can't even imagine how it would be possible!

We had a family reunion and had both the Lodge and the Hay Meadow House. Relatives came from both coasts. Kids everywhere running, playing in the creek, catching fish, getting dirty, and just being able to be kids. No cars, no strangers to worry about, just gorgeous open space to hike, run, and enjoy.

This is just a spectacular place!

A fantastic home for our family reunion

  • 5 of 5

We were a large family reunion and rented this house as well as some others right nearby. The house was a wonderful location for this mixed aged group. One of our family members lives nearby and led us to this fantastic property.

The house is very nice and easily seated our whole group for dinners (30+) at three long tables though it would have been cozy with a much smaller group too. The weather was gorgeous, so we did spend a huge amount of time on the porch with its dramatic mountain views (though it would nice in the rain, too); the porch had very nice furniture and allowed for private conversations or a big group. A large yard was great for the kids (ages 3-16) to run around and you can leave from the property to a variety of nice walks and hikes.

The kitchen was a cook's dream and very well stocked and roomy. We had caterers who cooked breakfast and lunch for our whole group and I was almost disappointed to not be able to spend more time in it!

The house is a treasure trove of books, games, cards and great things on the walls to look at. A private bedroom downstairs was good for a set of grandparents and two families of four slept upstairs, one in the bedroom and one in the open loft area. Towels and bedding were plush. There were more than adequate bathrooms/showers, etc.

Big Horn is a great area with a great deal to do but you could spend your whole week near leaving this gorgeous house and porch! Our host was also lovely and seemed very accessible though the house felt very private.

Don't miss this one!

Location! View! Activities! Attractions! BUT ~

  • 3 of 5

The location of Canyon Ranch Lodge is idyllic. It affords easy access into the Big Horns, it's 20 minutes from Sheridan and 10 minutes from watching world class polo. We were greeted each morning with breathtaking views of the mountains while we sat on the huge, front porch drinking our morning coffee. One cannot tire of the views no matter what time of day it is. Three horses were ever present to watch along with deer, wild turkeys and sand hill cranes. All of that deserves a five star rating. BUT ~ the lower rating is mainly because of the physical condition of the lodge. Temperatures were in the 90s the week we were there. The upstairs had no vents for AC which made sleeping very uncomfortable. Opened windows at night when it was cooler did not offer sufficient relief. The casement windows on both the upper and lower levels are in

poor repair and don't work properly. Opening and closing them was a pain in the butt. There was a wind storm the last night we were there with wind gusts up to 60mph (per Weather History for KSHR). The windows could not be closed from inside; one had to go outside to push them shut and someone from inside would then secure them. The wind was dangerous to be in. The king mattress was reported as having a divot and some toilets left us wondering if they would flush or not flush. Lastly, internet was not accessible

to our group with three laptops. In spite of Paul's (owner) efforts to help rectify the problem it never happened. Measures need to be taken by the owners to fix the problems in order for this rental to warrant

the asking rate.

Owner's Response: Oh my goodness Mary, I'm so very sorry that you had a disappointing stay! We will take a look at the window casements to make sure they are not in need of repairs. And, if they are in need of repair we will take care of it. I'm so sorry there was a wind storm on your last evening here and if I could have changed that for you I certainly would have. The internet issue while you were here stemmed from a provider issue and they were as prompt as they could be to correct it. Unfortunately, because we are in a rural part of Wyoming they could not correct their issue prior to your departure. We do sincerely apologize for what appears your group not having been able to enjoy our beautiful ranch. Thank you for your comments and they are helpful to us. Kindly, sandra

Canyon Ranch Lodge - The Perfect Idyll

  • 5 of 5

We had the most wonderful week staying at the Lodge as a family with two teenage sons. If you like the big outdoors with the most wonderful views (night and day) and the opportunity for delightful walks and the peace and tranquillity of wild life, in such a beautiful setting as Wyoming Big Horn offers, then this is the place for you. The lodge is very spacious with plenty of room for a family and a great set up with the porch all along the front and fully equipped kitchen and modern communications with wifi and television and so on. Sheridan is close by with places to see and things to do a plenty and also the nearby newly opened Brinton Museum is well worth a visit. Their collection of wild west paintings and the American Indian collection are fabulous. The Big Horn golf and tennis club is also next door so with all these activities on hand there is plenty to do for ages and interests. As well as just sit and read and look at the view. The owners were wonderfully welcoming and helpful and will give you the space to enjoy and share in their very special home. We would most definitely come back again one day all the way from the UK just to experience the special Canyon Ranch magic once again. We would also not hesitate recommending to our friends as the special way to come and see this unique part of the world.

A Hermitage

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I searched high and low for a place to spend special time with two of our adult children. The lodge was perfect. Plenty of room, providing space for group activities as well as comfortable alone time.

The view was breathtaking and we found ourselves amazed at how quiet and peaceful the days and nights were.

We were close enough to Big Horn and Sheridan to do the town, but found ourselves spending hours on the lodge porch, glassing the distant elk herd, watching deer venture near and counting the multiple varieties of owls at dusk.

Canyon Ranch is situated perfectly for all kinds of day trips, whether shopping, touring the nearby mountain roads, battlefields, museums, trail rides, etc.

We had a blast taking turns cooking in the huge kitchen. The "kids" went on treasure hunts of a sort to find all the things available to guests - we needed nothing other than the food we brought - all was provided.

Watching the light play on the mountains and hills is magic and so relaxing. The TV never came on once during our stay as there was an abundance of beauty to watch all around us; nighttime star gazing (I spotted constellations I haven't been able to see since childhood!), distant lightning storms, cloud/shadow play, young newborn fawns wobbling after their mothers.

It was so nice to see our kids receive a good, healthy dose of nature once again and we delighted in seeing their appreciation for it, which wasn't the case when they were younger - they always wanted to get back to the pool or the TV! This time, in this place, they often called us out to share some special sight. Quite a treat.

I will hold nothing but fine memories of our stay and am so grateful to our gracious hosts for offering us a chance to experience a little bit of their very own slice of Heaven.

I already want to return!

The area around Canyon Ranch, including the towns of Sheridan, Big Horn and Buffalo, offer a variety of activities and a wealth of Western frontier history.

Named the #1 Western Town in America by True West Magazine, Sheridan boasts historical sites, museums, outdoor activities, rodeos, shopping, world-class polo, and so much more!

Rodeo is a favorite sport in Wyoming, after all, we do have the bucking bronc on our license plates. We highly recommend the Sheridan WYO Rodeo held in mid-July for a week of non-stop activities featuring PRCA rated rodeo performances. In August, the Sheridan County Rodeo features some of the best local cowboys showing off their stuff.

As the home of the oldest Polo Club in America, the Big Horn Polo Club was started in the early 1900's by the Wallop and Moncrieffe families at the Polo Ranch near Big Horn which is adjacent to Canyon Ranch. The Wallop and Moncrieffe descendants established one of the finest lines of horses that were provided to the Queen of England in her efforts to battle the Boer War. These Wyoming bred and trained horses were prepared for the battlefield through the game of polo assuring the Queen of brave equine soldiers in the field.

Today, a visitor can enjoy a game of polo at the Big Horn Polo Club every weekend during June, July, August, and over Labor Day weekend. World Class Polo has taken hold in Big Horn at the Flying H Polo club at the neighboring ranch where Patrons, their players, and grooms from all over the world play very fast and impressive high goal polo every week during July and August. If you like to gold the Powder Horn Golf Club is a short drive from the ranch offering a highly rated 18 and 27 hole play. Additionally, there is an 18 hole Municipal Golf Course which is further from the ranch. Each Golfing option offers magnificent mountain views.

The Sheridan and Johnson County area has many historic Indian battle sites of the late 19th century. These include Fort Phil Kearny, the Fetterman Masacre, and the Wagon Box Fight. The Little Bighorn Battlefield in Montana, the site of Custer's Last Stand, is only about an hour drive from the ranch. The Bradford Brinton Memorial and Western Art Museum is an absolute must see and only minutes from the ranch. King's Museum, adjacent to King's Saddlery in downtown Sheridan, houses an incredible collection of saddles and other Western memorabilia. The Historic Sheridan Inn was the site of auditions for the Buffalo Bill's Wild West Show. This distinctive 'House of 69 Gables', has housed many famous people including Earnest Hemingway.

Canyon Ranch itself has hosted many famous guests of it's own over the 120+ years the Wallop family has owned it. The most famous being the Queen of England and while she was here she enjoyed this sacred and gorgeous ground we call Canyon Ranch.
