Environmental & Social Practices

  • Community

  • The small ranching community of Ten Sleep, Wyoming is a true example of western lifestyle. Located at the base of the Big Horn Mountains, the area is rich in fertile soil and waterways, which make it perfect for raising cattle and sheep.

    Near the present site of Casper on the Platte River, there was an Indian camp that the trappers called the Old Sioux Camp. To the north near the present site of Bridger, Montana, on the Clarks Fork River, was another Indian camp; these camps were located on the Indian trade route. Ten Sleep was midway between the two camps, so as Indians measured distance by travel time, Ten Sleep was the tenth night or “sleeps” between the two camps.

    The area is full of history and is recognized as being the site of many historic battlegrounds between Indian tribes and the white man. Among those sites are the Bates Battle site, an engagement in which the Arapahoe were defeated by a coalition composed of US troops and the Shoshone. At the Dull Knife site, Dull Knife and Wild hog were defeated leaving the Big Horn Mountains under the control of the white man. Located a few miles south of Ten Sleep is the famous site of the Spring Creek Raid (on the Red Reflet Ranch). Here, cattle ranchers and sheep herders fought a bloody battle over grazing rights. The event eventually led to the end of the bitter rivalry between cattlemen and sheep ranchers.

    Scenic wonders such as mountain ranges, canyons, pure mountain streams, and lakes are everywhere. To the southwest of Ten Sleep, Castle Gardens presents unusual stone caricatures of animals, castles and other objects of interest, many of which can be climbed and all offer great photographic moments.

  • Food

  • Produce comes from our greenhouse, garden and orchard. Our beef is ranch raised, processed in our butcher shop and aged to be savory and tender. We also use organic free-range chickens and eggs. The surrounding area has abundant elk, deer, antelope, pheasant, grouse, and rabbit and meals often include wild game.

Mealtime is always memorable at the Red Reflet Ranch. Almost everything on the table has been grown or raised on the Ranch, then prepared by our resident executive Chef. Produce comes from our greenhouse, garden and orchard. Our beef is ranch raised, processed in our butcher shop and aged to be savory and tender. We also use organic free-range chickens and eggs. The surrounding area has abundant elk, deer, antelope, pheasant, grouse, and rabbit and meals often include wild game.

One of our traditions is to enjoy the evening meal together. Red Reflet guests are invited to dine with the owners and other guests in the Lodge. However, there are several other options available such as: dinner at the Mountain Cabin, wagon-ride dinner combinations on the upper Ranch, rodeo and barbeque dinners, and even private dinners in the chalet.

A great deal of effort is taken to make every meal tasty, healthful, and unique. Every effort will be made to accommodate your special dietary allergies and needs using our heart-healthy approach to fine dining.

We have an extensive wine cellar, many beers, cold drinks and a well-stocked bar. There are no extra charges for this hospitality.

Children at the Ranch

Great for children aged 6 and over



Children are more than welcome at Red Reflet Ranch and their needs and desires can be met by kid-friendly staff that will ensure they have the BEST time! At the Ranch we recognize that children are guests along with their families and so they deserve a say in what is planned for them. Whether it is hiking to search for fossils such as belemnites or to find seashells on the seafloor the path is theirs to discover.

Riding horses on trails is usually for those over 8 but children under that age have an indoor and outdoor arena in which to learn or ride. Barrel racing with a champion might be an option or working with cattle, it all depends on the day and riding ability.

The Zip Line is available for children with a 60lb minimum weight.

How about helping the Chef in the Ranch kitchen or at the Outdoor BBQ? There are countless trails on which to ride an ATV (again age permitting) or maybe sports such as Volleyball or Basketball or Swimming or Rock wall climbing?

Ranch chickens are gentle and kids can feed them and gather eggs for the family' breakfast!

It is all about FUN…

Local Attractions

  • We've only highlighted attractions that may add to your stay!
  • DINOSAUR DIG

  • By special arrangement we can take families to view a dinosaur dig where bones have been found from times dating back 150 million years. More than 11 complete dinosaur remains have been unearthed since 2006 at the Dana Quarry, part of the Morrison Formation near Ten Sleep Wyoming - a veritable treasure trove of virtually intact skeletons. These numbers suggest that this area may have been a watering hole which dried up during a period of drought providing scientists with a rare opportunity to study these ancient creatures. The Dana Quarry is excavated by Dinosauria International LLC and Red Reflet Ranch is pleased to enjoy the privilege of our guests being able to visit. Times for visiting are limited due to the extreme heat in the summer months.
