In its newest episode, “Circle of Sustainability,” Discover Ranches turns its lens on The Lodge and Spa at Brush Creek Ranch where sustainability runs through every aspect of their business.

The ranch resort, located in Saratoga, WY, is known for its majestic scenery, limitless luxury, and endless adventure. But what most people don’t know is that Brush Creek began as -and still is- a working ranch, so responsible conservation and cultivation of the land is paramount to their philosophy.

The ranch prides itself on unforgettable ranch vacations where visitors can disconnect to reconnect with minimal impact on the environment. During their vacation, they witness- and become a part of- good stewardship of the land so that it can be maintained for wildlife and enjoyed for generations to come.

Conde Nast Traveler has given The Lodge and Spa at Brush Creek Ranch plenty of accolades including:

#1 Resort in the USA

#1 Dude Ranch in the USA

#2 Hotel and Resort in the World

The Lodge & Spa at Brush Creek Ranch is an all-inclusive luxury ranch resort exclusively designed for discerning travelers, ambitious adventurers, corporate group retreats, family luxury dude ranch vacations and ranch destination weddings. The luxury dude ranch features a stately 38,000-square foot lodge, a luxury spa, a finely appointed collection of cabin suites & residences, lodge rooms, and a plentitude of authentic outdoor adventures for every season, including unparalleled Orvis-endorsed Fly Fishing and Wing Shooting.

Additional Information

  • Ranch Vacations are integral to not only our history, but to the preservation and sustainability of our land and the people around.
  • The underlying purpose of Discover Ranches Travel Series is to preserve the ranching heritage and shed light on how ranches are making greater contributions to the land and people around them.
  • Unlike some tourism products out there, your typical guest ranch is a business inextricably linked with altruism and a love of the human condition, animals, the ecosystem, community and authentic connection with the land.
  • Ranchers feel so passionately about the land on which they live and sharing that love with the visitors who join their families, that a great deal of time is dedicated and devoted to protecting the environment through constant collaboration, education and advocating sustainable practices, and supporting local communities.
  • Ranch Vacations are an education whereby many guests’ lives are forever changed. As Bill Porcher, wrangler at Alisal Guest Ranch and Resort, states ‘…many guests have said this was the most life-changing experience of their lives’.
  • As ranch vacation owner, Debbie Atha of Free Rein Guest Ranch states, ‘only with the continued patronage of our inspirational guests can we persist in in these missions to make the world a better place. Guests at a ranch are touched in some unique way that they never thought possible and are educated and motivated on a larger scale to also make an impact on the land and people around them’.
