About the Property

5 Bdrm, 3 Bath Riverfront, Sleeps 12, Mountain Views, Private, Tranquil, Fishing

Red Butte Ranch is COMPLETELY BOOKED for the Solar Eclipse in 2017. It pains me to send away reservations, as I'd love to have you all, but unfortunately, I have no further accommodations available for this event. Sorry for the inconvenience!

Recently purchased, Red Butte Ranch Lodge is a work in progress. The owner is constantly working to fine tune the lodge to any clients' desires, and will work with most reasonable requests. There are lots of plans for renovation in the works, including the upstairs bathrooms, as well as turning the downstairs bar into a fully functioning kitchen, plus more! Thank you for supporting Red Butte Ranch through this process.

The fully furnished Red Butte Ranch Vacational Rental offers all the comforts of home, and is the perfect place to enjoy your time away with everything you need, YEAR ROUND! The 5 BR 3 Bath riverfront lodge sleeps up to 12.

Red Butte Ranch is located right outside of Casper, and offers a close proximity to museums, skiing, fine dining, and shopping. One of the major draws of Red Butte Ranch is the tranquility of private access to the North Platte River, where you can enjoy fly fishing under the shade of Cottonwoods and Willows, and trophy Brown and Rainbow Trout abound! Wyoming made fly fishing products, as well as drift boat rentals are available onsite. Interested in a guided trip? We can hook you up!


On the upper level of the lodge, you will find a kitchen fully equipped with all the modern amenities your heart desires - island countertop electric 5-burner stove, cabinet mounted oven and microwave, dishwasher, coffee maker, toaster, pots and pans, and plenty of dishes and cutlery. A counter height table seats four in the kitchen, and the connected dining area seats an additional six.

An entryway opens into the large sitting-room, which offers a picturesque view of Cole Mountain through the large window that gives the room an open feel. The first and second bedrooms house queen sized beds, and share a full size bathroom with his-and-hers sinks. The master suite has a luxurious king sized bed and two large closets. A large dresser adds additional space for you to unpack and make yourself truly at home. A 42' television is also available, to wind down after a long day of adventures. An en-suite
bathroom gives you the privacy you need.

The large wrap-around deck allows you to enjoy the magnificent view of Bessemer Mountain and the North Platte River from the 'best seat in the house.' The porch swing situated right outside the sliding glass doors of both the kitchen and the master suite is a perfect place to unwind after a long day of fly fishing. Two umbrella-patio tables can seat up to 8. A large barbeque grill is also available for your use.

On the lower level, there are two more bedrooms - the first has a queen sized bed, and the second has two double beds. Down the hall is a newly remodeled bathroom that the two rooms share. A large, rustic bar offers comfortable seating to watch a movie on the television, and a fantastic view of the North Platte River out the sliding glass door.

An additional renovation is soon to be completed, housing a ping pong table and dart board for your use, as well as a wader-room, so you can shuck off the waders and unwind before entering your beautiful home away from home.

Free wifi is offered throughout the lodge, as well as satellite television in the master suite, sitting room, and bar.

Shuttle services are available upon request to most local areas.
