There is a cabin on the property that can be rented in conjunction with this lodge for larger groups of up to 18 people. The cabin is a 1 bedroom vacation rental that sleeps 8, the ‘Caribou Cabin’. In addition, there are 5 basic camper cabins without any amenities, that can accommodate up to 16 people. Please inquire for details.

You will receive a gate access code prior to your arrival. When you arrive at the gate, enter the provided code to enter the private property and then follow the directions to the Bair Ranch Office. Once checked in, ranch staff will guide you to the Lodge.

A 4WD or AWD VEHICLE IS A MUST due to unpaved, steep mountain roads and the potential for high levels of snow in the spring and fall seasons. Roads leading to the cabin become very slippery and dangerous with extensive rains.  If heavy rains occur during your stay, you may be required to remain in the cabin as long as the road conditions are dangerous.  If heavy rains occur prior to your arrival, it could cause a delay with your check-in. Please note that there is a 10’ clearance height restriction at the entrance gate. 

Mounted taxidermy is on the main level of the Lodge in the great room and dining area.

This Lodge is uniquely off-grid, run strictly by hydroelectric power. While it has your basic comforts (e.g. satellite internet, TV with streaming apps), it is very important to closely monitor your energy consumption by turning off all lights and unplugging devices when not in use.

Cell phone service is weak but available via WiFi calling/texting. Otherwise, a signal can be obtained 3 miles down the road near the ranch entrance or the office.

WiFi is sourced through the Starlink satellite system and can be intermittent at times so not ideal for remote work.

It is recommended that you bring your own bagged ice and drinking water with you. See details regarding the coffee maker under Additional Notes below.

PETS or ANIMALS of ANY KIND are NOT PERMITTED. The Bair Ranch is a working ranch where livestock and wild animals are abundant. There are large dogs roaming the grounds periodically herding the livestock. Bringing a domestic animal to the property could be dangerous to the livestock as well as the ranch dogs.

THIS IS A NON-SMOKING PROPERTY. The use of tobacco, cannabis, or vapor devices is strictly prohibited.  Disregarding this Rule may result in a fine.

The Lodge does NOT have air conditioning although there are fans for your comfort. It stays fairly cool in the summer due to the higher elevation.

This Lodge has only one full bathroom with a shower, important to note for larger groups.
