Operating since 1947, the R Lazy S Ranch is located in one of the West's most scenic area - Jackson Hole. Just 20 minutes from the town of Jackson, the ranch is bordered by Grand Teton National Park to the North, and the beautiful Snake River to the East. Close by are Teton trails, alpine lakes, sparkling streams and lush green meadows. The towering Teton Mountains are in full view and only minutes away from the Ranch.
Each of the 14 individual cabins on the 325 acre Ranch enjoy magnificent views. Various floor plans and sizes are offered to allow large or small families. All cabins have one or two private bathrooms, electric heat, and either a sitting room with a stone fireplace or a wood burning stove. The main lodge, with it's massive stone fireplace and cozy living room is a favorite gathering place, especially for cocktails before dinner and night activities. Our unusually large crew of 35 is able to offer distinctive personal attention.
A healthy measure of the R Lazy S Western hospitality is evident at meal time. Quality, balanced meals are served at sit down dinners in the lodge, buffets and cookouts. It is gourmet home cooking, Western style; all you can eat.

Morning and afternoon riders are divided into small groups according to ability and each is led by an experienced wrangler. We have approximately 17 different all-day rides. Guests may leave on horseback directly from the Ranch for rides to nearby canyons and meadows as well as being transported by truck and trailer for regularly scheduled rides to many other areas in the valley.
The daily program is full and varied, but completely optional. Our program ranges from active days to restful days on the Ranch - suitable for families, couples, and individuals.
The R Lazy S has direct access to several miles of private frontage on the Snake River, one of the West's top trout fishing streams. Many other streams and mountain lakes are also nearby.
