Have you ever experienced a stay at a bed and breakfast? If not, you’re missing out on the charm, comfort, relaxation, and unique experience that just isn’t offered by traditional hotel chains. Staying at a bed and breakfast is the perfect choice for lodging when you need a relaxing escape. Plus, unlike other B&Bs, our Fort Laramie Bed and Breakfast offers historic Wyoming hospitality on a working ranch, the Cowboy Way Ranch!
What Makes Fort Laramie Bed and Breakfast Better Than Any Ol’ Hotel
Superior Customer Service
We’re smaller than hotels, so you can expect superior customer service and personal attention at the Fort Laramie Bed and Breakfast. We own it. So we take a more hands-on approach to managing our Bed and Breakfast and go the extra mile. We make sure you feel welcome, comfortable, relaxed, and satisfied with your experience of the historic West on our working ranch. We’re available to give you insight on what to see, do, and where to eat or answer questions about our area history.
Excellence is our goal. Compare this level of customer service with what you will receive from a large chain hotel, and you’ll book your stay with us as soon as possible without batting an eye.
Amenities, Special Touches, and Chuckwagon Grub
We pride ourselves in making you feel as welcome as possible. That’s why you’ll find lots of little extras when you stay at our Bed and Breakfast. Our business center comes with internet Wi-Fi, phone, and fax capabilities. It’s located just off the common area to ensure your privacy. We also provide complimentary use of a washer and dryer for all your laundry needs.
A full ranch breakfast is included in your nightly rate. Fort Laramie Bed and Breakfast offers hearty, homemade, breakfasts to satisfy the hungriest Cowboys. You won’t find a breakfast like this at any hotel. Think beyond the usual continental breakfast, you know, stale donuts and granola, orange juice made from concentrate, instant coffee, liquid scrambled eggs poured from a carton, sugar-laden cereals, and yogurt. A hotel continental breakfast pales in comparison to the gourmet spread Kathy prepares and serves at our Bed and Breakfast.
The Cowboy Way Ranch welcomes tour groups with a special program allowing guests to step back in time experiencing the way it was in the Pioneer Days. Guests Cowboy Up with a Stetson upon arrival and dine on Chuckwagon Grub cooked over an open fire. They can learn the art of roping or compete in a game of horseshoes. And they can take advantage of great photo ops in any one of the rooms or the Hang ‘Em High Jail from the Paramount Movie Studio used for their Cowboy movies.
Bed and Breakfast and Area Activities
There are plenty of historical attractions and recreational activities to participate in here on site or in the surrounding area. The area offers tubing, rafting, or fishing the nearby Grayrocks Reservoir or North Platte River. If an archeological dig piques your interest, you can enjoy that activity, too. And there are lots of museums to explore and learn about the history of our area.
- Hiking – There are numerous hills and rock outcroppings to explore along with natural prairie lands. These hiking opportunities allow unique interaction with the birds and animals that inhabit the area. These range from hawks and eagles to deer and antelope and vary from the great to the small in things avian and mammalian.
- Biking – Numerous roads in the area provide an expanded opportunity to interact with nature as one enjoys inspiring vistas of a singular part of Wyoming.
- Steer roping – Practice the cowboy arts on our roping steer. Ropes provided.
- Horseshoes – Practice your toss on this classic western competition.
- New to Fort Laramie Bed and Breakfast is a pasture golf course, providing yet another challenge for those who are up for it.
Activities for the kids:
We provide a corn box for children to play in. They can play with shovels, buckets, and toys just like they would in a sandbox. Adults can join the kids for tetherball, kite flying, and numerous board games. For those with a competitive spirit, there’s also a corn hole game.
Now, just imagine topping off a day like that around a crackling campfire and enjoying a tasty treat under s starlit sky!
Each of the rooms in our Bed and Breakfast has a Western character all its own. They are individually unique, and each offers a different Western experience. And you get to book your accommodation of choice unlike you would at a hotel. Experience the way the Cowboys, Indians, and Pioneers lived by staying in the Officer’s Quarters, a traditional Tipi, a refurbished early 1900s Sheep Wagon, or our Cowboy Bunkhouse for families. Oh yes, and the Outhouse offers the exhilarating Cowboy shower for those who choose to stay in the Tipi or Sheep Wagon. It’s a must-have experience you can’t fully appreciate until you’ve tried it.
Our Bed and Breakfast boasts a very interesting and unique history. Ask us about our rich history. Arnold is a true history buff. He would thoroughly enjoy sharing the history behind our Bed and Breakfast and the Fort Laramie National Historic Site just a few minutes down the road.
