Situated at the end of a private road adjacent to the Bridger-Teton National Forest, the Flying A Ranch has been in the same family for fifty years functioning both as a family retreat and a successful dude ranch. The setting is sensational backing up to the Gros Ventre Mountain Range and commanding dramatic views of the rugged Wind River Mountains across the Green River Valley to the southeast. Originally opened in 1926 the ranch features a lodge, the famous Guilded Moose Saloon perched on the edge of one of the ranch’s three stocked lakes, eight rustic but well-appointed log guest cabins, a classic western barn, a shop and multiple accommodations for staff. Spread across 360 critical deeded acres with additional grazing for horses, the Flying A offers key access, only 55 miles south and east of Jackson, to over 40 trails into the user-friendly adjacent national forest. Flying A is a perfect size for either a high-end exclusive guest ranch or a private family or corporate retreat.
Just the Facts
