Tell me more about Eaton’s Ranch. 

Eaton's Ranch is a Wyoming dude ranch and working cattle ranch located on the magnificent, pine covered eastern slopes of the Bighorn Mountains in northeastern Wyoming. Just eighteen miles west of Sheridan, the Ranch consists of 7,000 acres of beautiful open country with rolling hills, grassy meadows and hidden valleys. Twisting processions of cottonwood and pine trees mark the course of tumbling streams that roll out of the mountains. For 135 years, this Wyoming dude ranch has offered guests a western experience and shared with them a way of life. Eaton’s is proud to carry on a tradition and preserve a ranching heritage that goes back five generations. We invite you to join us and experience everything Eaton's Ranch has to offer during your Soulfeast Retreat. Once you have spent time with us, you will always be part of Eaton's and its history.
