Lodge History

In 1917, Medicine Bow Lodge first opened near Saratoga, Wyoming. We are proud to share great mountain views, rushing streams, towering fir trees and a true Old West experience for visitors to this beautiful part of our state. Fishing, hiking, horseback riding and evening campfires are among the memorable activities at the family-owned Lodge.

Guests may choose to arrange for overnight horseback pack trips in the mountains or visit scenic or historic sites in the Medicine Bow National Forest. In the nearby towns of Saratoga, Encampment and Savery there are museums, art galleries and shopping venues reflecting the flavor of this special locale. Also, in Saratoga are the natural springs at the famous Hot Pool, open year-round.

The recently refurbished Lodge features vintage log walls, comfortable furnishings, a huge stone fireplace and space for games, entertainment and dancing as well as Internet access. As many as thirty guests can enjoy all amenities and three delicious home cooked meals are served daily each day in the Lodge dining room. Carefully selected fresh produce, meats and seafood are complemented by breads and desserts prepared from treasured family recipes. Cozy cabins are rustic but welcoming and activities for young folks are offered for outdoor fun and arts and crafts. The timeless style of the west is reflected by the courteous and competent staff that assist with all aspects of the Medicine Bow Lodge experience.

A deck overlooking the creek invites artists or readers to enjoy the peaceful surroundings in pristine mountain air. Winter visitors may be hunters, snowmobilers, cross country skiers, or downhill skiers who return to the warmth of the Lodge after a day of exertion and excitement.

There is something for everyone at Medicine Bow Lodge. Convinced that everyone will leave here with a fondness for this timeless place, and many stories to tell others. We hope you’ll come and join us for your vacation and experience what many others have called “The Ride of a Lifetime”.
