Description

Welcome to the Buffalo Lodge! This large "shop" home is situated on a private 16-acre parcel in Clark, Wyoming. There is room for parking an RV (no hook-ups) and cars. The lodge is ideal for 10 guests but has room for more at an additional cost.

Experience the joy of Bennett creek and the small pond, both perfect for cooling off in the summer heat. Bennett creek is slow moving but fast enough to float down on inner-tubes, wade, or even fish. The pond is great for swimming, fishing, floating, or just dipping your feet in to cool off. Just off the patio is a shallow area perfect for younger children to sit in the water and play. There is also a small playground and sand pit. Bring your horses for an additional fee and ride on the property or explore the many trails to the east and west.

The lodge features an open floor plan for the kitchen, dining and living room. French doors lead off the living room to the patio. There are four bedrooms and three baths on the main floor. The upstairs has additional sleeping arrangements, another bathroom, and plenty of floor space for the less-discerning guest with a sleeping bag. One end of the home is a large bay with cement floor and collapsible tables and chairs. This is a perfect location for large group gatherings and cook-outs.

Stay where the buffalo used to roam! This is real Wyoming!

This land used to be part of a working buffalo ranch. Now Snowflake Ranch offers lodging on 16 acres of prairie and creek. Enjoy the beautiful views of the mountains and prairies; the Beartooth and Absaroka Mountains to the west and north, Big Horns to the east and Heart Mountain to the south. Plan some time to relax and watch the wildlife – ducks, eagles, hawks, rabbits, antelope, white tail and mule deer, coyote and fox. 

Bennett Creek runs through the property year round and there is a pond that provides opportunities for fishing, floating or swimming. The rugged and beautiful nearby Clark's Fork River and Canyon is a must for fishing, hiking, photography and sightseeing. Look for moose, elk, mountain goats and big horn sheep in the nearby mountains. The Clark’s Fork Fish Hatchery is just two miles down the road and visitors are welcome.

We are so excited to have you come enjoy the beauty of Wyoming! We want to share some additional information to help you prepare for your stay at the Snowflake Ranch in Clark, Wyoming.

This is a wild and rugged—Real—Wyoming.
This means that some of the luxuries of the city will be left behind. For instance, the closest grocery store or restaurant is nearly 30 miles away! The road to the ranch is gravel and dirt. The ranch is easily accessible by car, but you will travel approximately a mile and a half on a bumpy, dusty road. There are a few hazards that you need to be aware of. Our property is bordered by barbwire fences that are sharp. Cell phone service is limited. If you stand on the bridge, hold your head, hand, foot, ear, toe and tongue just right, you might be able to make a call! The good news is that text messaging works well and the home includes a landline phone for incoming or local calls.

Bennett Creek and the pond provide beauty and fun but can be hazardous to small children. Always… always supervise your children. There is no life guard on duty. Life jackets and water equipment may be available, but you enter the water at your own risk.

We have never experienced bear on our property and very rarely see rattle snakes. However, this is the wild prairie and there is a possibility of undesirable wild creatures, especially mice, harmless snakes, skunks or raccoons.

Snowflake Ranch is a place of simple comforts; not fancy, but clean and comfortable. There is no air conditioning. Nights in Wyoming usually cool off nicely so you can enjoy the natural breezes and coolness with open windows.

Camp fires are allowed in designated fire pit locations only. Always supervise and extinguish when you are done.

The ranch affords plenty of privacy but there will be management personnel on available should you need anything.

**PRICING is based on an occupancy of 10 guests. Additional guests are $10 per person, per day, up to 20 guests.

This was one of our favorite vacations ever! The house and property were beyond our expectations. The mountain view from outside was awesome! Such an amazing place to have family gatherings, it was perfect for our family reunion. Everyone who attended the reunion complemented on the whole place. My favorite place was sitting on the back patio in the morning, drinking coffee and listening to the creek flow right in front of my eyes. My family and I will definitely be back!

The property contacts were very helpful and friendly. We had a wonderful time together as this was our very first family reunion. Everyone had a wonderful time and enjoyed being out and away from town. It really gave us an opportunity to get caught up and to know each other better. The house was very comfortable and accommodated everyone from young to old. The outside living space was very nice and provided many activities for the children. The creek right next to the house was awesome!!!! Going to sleep at night listening to the water was amazing. Some of our party decided to pitch a tent next to the creek and enjoyed the incredible stars, moon and sounds of nature. We would stay here again in a heart beat!

Our family of 3 adults and 5 children had an excellent time at The Buffalo Lodge. It was exactly as it looked in the pictures. Although it was about 1.5 hours from Yellowstone, the children enjoyed the many different activities right outside the door, so there was never any "boredom." We so very much enjoyed the pond, the firepit, the little creek for wading and tubing, as well as the outside play equipment. The horses to pet were an added bonus for the kids. The Buffalo Lodge had a very well-stocked pantry, plenty of towels/linens for our group (and many more) and was large enough so everyone had plenty of room and/or privacy if they wanted it. I don't think the kids even noticed that there was no TV and only watched a couple of movies on the DVD, most evenings were spent playing lively card games or just simply showering and falling into bed because of the play-filled days. We enjoyed our week there immensely and would recommend this away-from-it-all place to anyone who wants to spend time with family/friends but still have plenty of activities at your doorstep to keep the kids entertained!

The property was remarkable for our large group. The owners were quick to respond to our water issue and they were extremely cordial. This property was way beyond anything that we expected. So satisfied and have told many people about our experience.
