Nestled in an alpine river valley, the Darwin Ranch has been catering to wilderness enthusiasts since 1965, when Loring Woodman began renovating the old log cabins at the Gros Ventre River crossing. This is the point in a once settled valley where the original, now obliterated, pioneer wagon track started its long descent into Jackson Hole. Most of the old homesteads are long since gone, but the Darwin Ranch remains. We are 22 miles inside the Bridger-Teton National Forest over such a long dirt road that we have this last, totally isolated section of the Gros Ventre River valley - officially designated "Wilderness" in 1984 - very much to ourselves.
An elegant old lodge, five cabins, twenty horses, low-key guides, modern plumbing, electricity from the creek, a library with a piano, and an accomplished cook, complete the scene. Our maximum of 16 guests schedule their own day, doing exactly what they want.
The scenery is spectacular, the cabins are simple and comfortable, the food is delicious, and our rustic style harkens back to the old-time guest ranches of the 20's and 30's. Spend your days on horseback, hiking, fishing, painting, reading- in short, doing what your heart desires. Take along a picnic or return to the ranch for lunch. Change your mind. The days are yours.
