How Will Grandma Get There? Located 20 miles southeast of the town of Saratoga, Wyoming, the Ranch is approximately 75 minutes from Laramie and 3.5 hours from Denver. Saratoga’s private airport is only minutes from our front gate. Commercial flights arrive into Denver, Laramie, Cheyenne and Steamboat Springs. Ideally guests would stay on the property, as their lodging/food fee is included in your wedding package price. The Ranch offers lodging for 180 guests, including 10 two- and three-bedroom Log Cabin Residences, 13 Trailhead Lodge Rooms, and 9 fully refurbished Cabin Rooms & Suites. Outside of the wedding package, room rates typically range between $700-$1,050/per person/per night depending on the season. Rates include lodging, meals, soft drinks, premium spirits, beer and wine, as well as a wide range of experiences daily; excludes Spa experiences and select elite à la carte experiences.
Note: You do of course have the personal option to charge guests as little or as much as you want for their accommodations, but that choice is up to you (and would be handled between you and your guests, and not the venue).
Party On! Events can go until midnight
In 1884 the Sterrett brothers settled the land that would become Brush Creek Ranch and built the original homestead with logs from the adjacent area which is now part of Medicine Bow National Forest. Acquired in 2008 by hotelier Bruce White, the Brush Creek Ranch sits on 15,ooo acres including 50 miles of private trails, 10 miles of private water for fishing, an Equestrian Center, and spa. The Orvis-endorsed fly-fishing lodge and Ranch won the Condé Nast Traveler 2014 Readers’ Choice Awards for the #1 US Resort and Dude Ranch and the #2 Hotel & Resort in World.

Woman Getting Married Says
Be right back…I’m going to travel back in time and have our wedding all over again at this amazing wedding venue. I’m considering asking them if I (well, my husband AND I) can live here indefinitely. I mean, it’s like a set from a Ralph Lauren photo shoot. Yes, it’s expensive, and if you’re looking to have a lot of guests for not a lot of money, this is not going to be the right venue for you. But if you’re looking to have an intimate, 25 person wedding or even a 140 person wedding (I personally like the idea of something smaller…like 60) and have a larger budget, then this is a serious consideration for a destination wedding venue. Keep in mind that you will have to decide whether or not you’re going to treat your family/friends (since the price you pay includes their accommodations), or if you’re going to arrange for them to pay you a portion or all of their share in return. If you do plan on having guests pay their lodging fees (something they would do directly to you or your family), you’ll want to make sure the majority of them will feel comfortable with the high prices (or that you won’t feel uncomfortable paying for them if they don’t).
