Imagine sitting on a leather couch in front of the floor to ceiling river rock fireplace enjoying beautiful mountain views. Maybe you prefer to enjoy the Wyoming beauty more directly from the full length deck? Or preparing meals in an open spacious kitchen with barstools around the counter, still enjoying the views. We have the perfect location for your needs and desires. Specializing in large groups, weddings, family reunions, outfitters, corporate meetings, and retreats. This property has about 6,400 s.f. of living space consisting of the lodge and the retreat house, with an attached 3-car garage. It sits on 35 acres with beautiful views of the adjoining mountains. Minutes from downtown Cody which has the World-Famous Cody Nite Rodeo, Buffalo Bill Historical Center and Museums, nightly re-enacted gunfights, shopping, rec center with pool, and more. Also minutes from the Buffalo Bill Reservoir, Buffalo Bill Dam and Visitor's Center.
Centrally located to unlimited outdoor recreational opportunities which can be enjoyed on a day-trip basis, such as Yellowstone National Park, Thermopolis Hot Springs and Dinosaur Museum, Shell Canyon, Wind River Canyon, Little Big Horn, the Medicine Wheel, Big Horn Mountains, Beartooth Mountains, Pryor Mountain Wild Horse range, and Grand Teton National Park.
This was the PERFECT getaway for our family of 25 who were celebrating my parents 50th wedding anniversary! I can not say enough about how wonderful, nice and accommodating the owners were during our entire stay. This was a perfect location, close to Cody (small town), but great for day trips to Yellowstone and other fun outings. The home is large and the view from the back of the house with the mountains in the background is beautiful and the view of the stars at night are amazing! I am a travel agent, so I have seen many homes, condos, resorts, etc. and this is definitely in my Top 10!
We gathered our scattered family to celebrate our 60th Anniversary...(our little wedding reception was held at Irma Flat Club House just up the road) Our stay at Bull Moose Retreat was so comfortable. The facility was perfect for a happy time with our children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. The owners answered our every question and request. The garage worked for an ice cream social for friends and extended family.
We could look west from the Retreat to review family history from the McMillin, Schultz and Christler ancestors. McMillins lived on Poverty Flats, just up the way in 1916. There is a photo of Folsom on the steps of Irma Flat School at age 7 or 8. Pete was guiding and doing rope trips at Valley Ranch in 1926 or 27. Christlers bought Castle Rock Ranch in 1932 and soon filed on a homestead right behind the rock. Be the time we were in high school Betty lived on the place where the Dale Millers later resided and Joe lived in a house on the right side of the Southfork road, not half a mile from Bull Moose that had been the Nordquist place. We love the Southfork...can you tell.
Great place to stay! Convenient to Cody and Yellowstone! Rick and Linda are top-notch folks and will do everything possible to make your visit as enjoyable as possible!

Three things stand out about the Bull Moose Retreat:
The house itself, which is every bit as nice and appealing as pictured; the spectacular scenery, from watching the sunset over the Absaroka Mountain range to discovering hidden gems of nature on a morning walk around the Wyoming landscape; and the warmth and hospitality of the owners, Rick and Linda.
Our family of 22 – ranging in age from 76 to 6 — booked the Bull Moose Retreat sight unseen for mid July, 2010. You just never know if the website photos pictured are what you’re actually going to experience. Upon arrival, this place was every bit as advertised and more. It was the perfect venue for our family reunion, as families gathered from Florida, Virginia, Missouri and Illinois. Nearby Cody is a unsung treasure, and driving “America’s 52 most scenic miles” into Yellowstone was a pleasure not a chore.
Throughout the entire week, Rick and Linda were the perfect hosts: There if we needed them but keeping a respectful distance. We’d return in a heartbeat. We highly recommend this place — you won’t be disappointed.
What a wonderful facility for a reunion or meeting involving 2 to 40 people. We recently held a family reunion involving 39 people ranging from 3 to 85 and all throughly enjoyed and appreciated the beautiful, comfortable facilities , the location, the being able for all to be together in one place, the museum, art gallery, and rodeo in Cody, the beautiful scenery and history in Yellowstone Park. We enjoyed the Bull Moose Retreat for four days, there was something to do all the time and it was everything we had hoped it would be as it was a very special time for us. The hosts, Rick and Linda were most gracious and helpful, volunteered to grill our steaks one evening, and provided airport pickup and delivery for several of our group. We have highly recommended the Bull Moose Retreat to several of our friends.
What a wonderful place to stay! We spent a week at Bull Moose Retreat in July with our entire family of 31 (14 adults, 17 kids). The house had everything we needed. Beautiful mountain views from the back deck, not far from downtown Cody, and the drive into Yellowstone was unforgettable! Loved it so much that we hope to return soon!! The owners are close by and were extremely gracious and hospitable.
