JACKSON, Wyo. — At the Darwin Ranch, you will experience the wild on your own terms. At the most remote guest ranch in the lower 48 states, 25 miles down a dirt road, you will find a herd of horses dotting a spectacular green river valley amidst a collection of 100-year-old cabins. In stark contrast to summers in Jackson Hole, once you unpack and park your car, you won’t see a vehicle for the rest of the week.

Finding inspiration in the safari lodges of East Africa, we are not a typical dude ranch, but rather a jumping-off point for wilderness exploration. In our secluded, high-altitude oasis, we encourage you to choose your own adventure–with or without a guide. You can spend the day riding and hiking in the Bridger-Teton Forest and the Gros Ventre Wilderness without a soul for miles in any direction. You can wet a line or settle into an afternoon with a book. You can gather for cocktails on the porch of the main lodge overlooking the twists and turns of the Gros Ventre River. You can watch the sunset while soaking in our wood-fired hot tub. And you can drift off to sleep in our stunning hand-built cabins whose modern style blends gracefully into the bones of 100-year-old structures.

At  The Darwin, we are committed to sustainability, and this is highlighted through our off-grid power system, our rotational grazing program, our commitment to a zero-waste future, our conservation efforts, and our eco-friendly kitchen. The majority of our meat and vegetables come from our sister ranch outside of Cody, and we fill in our extraordinary meals with organic meat and produce from Teton and Sublette Counties whenever possible. We see food as an opportunity to celebrate Wyoming’s agriculture network and as an investment in the conservation of the landscape.

Interested in a wild, intimate, and luxurious adventure? This season, in addition to our standard one-week duration stays, we will be offering an abbreviated local’s period during July 3rd-6th.
