The extraordinary Beaver Creek Ranch is located north of historic Daniel, Wyoming near the breathtaking views and backcountry of “The Rim” in the Upper Green River Valley of Sublette County. The ranch is comprised of approximately 12,040± deeded acres centered on the confluence of the beautiful Green River (a Blue Ribbon Water) with the historic three forks of Beaver Creek. The meandering waters of the ranch include about eight miles along the Green River and about 30 miles of winding live water on the three forks of Beaver Creek. Trophy trout abound in these cold mountain waters, as the Beaver Creeks flow out of the Forest lakes and snow fields of both the Wyoming and Gros Ventre Mountain Ranges. The Green River tumbles out of the Wind River Range. These mountains contain the greatest concentrations of glaciers and glacier fed lakes, creeks and rivers in the lower 48 states. Incredibly, this splendid ranch is less than an hour from Jackson Hole, Wyoming, a spectacular drive through world class scenery.

The Beaver Creek Ranch is about an hour south of Jackson Hole, Wyoming, the southern gateway to Grand Teton and Yellowstone National Parks. The area offers uncompromised beauty and is part of the Bridger Teton National Forest, representing almost 20 million acres of pristine forests, mountains, rivers and streams all part of the Greater Yellowstone Region. Jim Bridger and Bill Sublette from whom the county and forest derive their names, were mountain men and part of the fur trapping brigade that included Hugh Glass. Their names were made famous for their part in leaving old Hugh to die after he was mauled by a Grizzly, as portrayed by Leonardo DiCaprio in the recent movie Revenant.
The drive from Jackson Hole to Beaver Creek Ranch is on highway 89 one of the most beautiful and historic drives in the nation, traversing through the Hoback River Canyon, through Little Jackson’s Hole (and rising up and over The Rim. The Rim divides the big river drainages Snake River to the Columbia and the Pacific Green River to the Colorado and the Sea of Cortez.
The Rim, at elevations of about 6,500 ‘ to 13,800’, one discovers the astonishingly beautiful Upper Green River Valley, offering stunning 100 mile views of the Gros Ventre and Wind River Mountain ranges. Here homesteaders in the 1890s, utilized the hardy grass along the river and creeks that gave cattle a chance to compete for survival with the abundant wildlife, elk, deer, pronghorn and moose, under the watchful eyes of eagles, hawks and the occasional wolf and Grizzly Bear.
The old log homestead cabin near the HQ home was built by the family of Cliff Hansen, the beloved former US Senator and Governor of Wyoming. The HQ home area, which still bears the name the Hansen Place is accessed by a private historic wooden bridge over the Green River. This historic bridge and original road served as the earliest highway and river crossing between Jackson and Pinedale.
Each ranch station includes well maintained homes for the ranch cowboys. These ranch stations exude iconic western ranch history. The log homes, barns and corrals are evidence of the early toils of the homestead ranch families. In memory of these pioneers the North Ranch Station home is known as the Royce Place, the North Ranch Station shipping pens are known as the Wilson Place shipping corrals, and the South Ranch Station and corrals are called the Gransden Place. Local lore includes stories about Butch Cassidy and TR Roosevelt spending time in these homestead cabins.
This part of Sublette County is the heart of Mountain Man Country. The Green River Rendezvous was an annual event during 1820 1840 Mountain Men, Trappers, Travelers and Indians all gathered in the valley near the ranch and bartered, traded, sold, and swapped various items such as skins, pelts, guns, jewelry and whatever else they needed. All knew the place where the forks of the Beaver and Horse Creeks flowed into the Green in the Upper Green River Valley and the source of these beaver filled streams in the Wyoming Range .The historic rendezvouses lasted anywhere from a few days to several months and were a time for getting new supplies, renewing acquaintances with old friends, story swapping, drinking and general rowdiness.

Located 26 miles south of Sheridan adjoining Bighorn Mountains, 1,359± acre private retreat offers lovely, tasteful three-bedroom home, outbuildings, caretaker’s apartment. Live water, extensive wildlife, and a magical setting.
“Most brokers have a strong sense of independence, so brokerages work around that, but Hall and Hall is not about the one working alone—their strength and longevity is built on the group, on the family,” explains Tyler Jacobs. “It’s the basic fundamentals and traditional values that we’ve thrived on since the company was founded back in 1946.”
Our Hall and Hall broker, Randy Shelton, kept us in the loop as though it were. Our sale hinged on that of larger surrounding parcels, and when an initial offer fell through, Randy went back to the drawing board and found a suitable buyer who shared our values. That meant a lot to us, as our property had been in the family for more than 100 years.
From the first time I walked through the door, I sensed Hall and Hall’s highest goals were to understand who I was and build a relationship, to understand what made my property special, and to find the buyer. Their discipline and focus was apparent. Throughout the entire process, their approach towards reality was different from the experiences I have had previously. Genuine would be the word I would use to describe everyone at Hall and Hall.
I interviewed 4 agents and selected Hall and Hall because of the agency’s reputation for expertise in high end ranch property and global marketing. I had the pleasure of working with Tim Murphy on the sale of a family property in the Paradise Valley, Montana. We believe he represented our family interests well and contributed to the integrity of the property by joining together buyer and seller and a shared love for this special place in our lives.
Bill McDavid was an outstanding and very patient partner in this sale. His expertise in the market and marketing of the property was excellent. I would use him again in a heartbeat to either buy or sell a ranch property.
“Guns, bear spray and handsaws: These aren’t the tools of your average luxury real-estate agent. But ranch brokers like Mr. Murphy, a Bozeman-based partner at Hall & Hall, occupy a unique and increasingly challenging niche in the world of multimillion-dollar property.”
“When it was time to invest in a ranch for our family, we knew we needed to work with Hall and Hall. The expertise is unsurpassed.”
In 1988, Joel Leadbetter became a partner at Hall and Hall where he has been instrumental in completing complicated, high-profile deals such as the recent sale of Texas’ historic 512,000-acre Waggoner Ranch.
“The professionalism, preparation, and overall positive demeanor exhibited… were truly impressive… I have never before worked with a more dedicated, knowledgeable, and level-headed sales professional.”
I had been looking for the right property for several years and Elliott Davenport’s insight into the quail plantation market and his ability to think strategically was instrumental in helping me find our new place. Elliott was helpful on all technical aspects of contracting and due diligence. His post closing help with hiring and contractors made the process much easier as well.
I have purchased 4 ranches through Hall and Hall over the past 20 years, and there is simply no other team in the world like them. They have navigated complexity, professionally attended to every detail, operated with fairness and integrity, and demonstrated an unwavering commitment to me– whether representing me or the person on the other side of the deal.
