Historic Ranch A
A meeting at Ranch A is memorable indeed. You may choose to use the historic lodge which was build by Finnish craftsmen to the specifications of Moses Annenberg in the 1930’s. The lodge has a spacious meeting area, a kitchen with all the equipment to prepare great meals, and sleeping accommodations for 48. There are about 5 acres of mowed lawns and you may move part of your event outside to enjoy the fabulous scenery! And best of all, when you rent the Ranch A lodge you get the whole facility … no sharing with other groups.
In addition to the Lodge, there is a smaller facility available to rent. Named for a former owner and longtime supporter of Ranch A, the latest meeting and lodging facility at Ranch A is a conversion from the original garage and caretaker’s quarters. It was designed and built as a small replica of the Lodge. The Pete Smith Memorial Cabin has the capability of year-round usage and has an exceptionally large area for meetings, workshops, or demonstrations.
The Lodge at Ranch A is available April 1st through November 15th (depending on weather). The Pete Smith Cabin may be available for use year round. Reservations may be made for an afternoon, a weekend, a week … or even a month. Call 307-643-3101 for information, availability, and to make reservations.
What a delightful time! We enjoyed during our stay at Ranch A. We hosted our 35th family reunion. The staff was marvelous and helpful and saw to our every need. We had time for hiking, fly fishing and especially catching up with family memories on the big front porch with the cool June breezes. Highly recommend this for your family gathering.
I was in charge of finding a suitable retreat for our quilter’s quarterly getaway. We had nothing but positive reviews from our members. There was room in the lodge for our quilting tables with suitable connections to accomodate our needs. And we enjoyed the great food and the peaceful strolls around the beautiful grounds at Ranch A. Thank you for an enjoyable outing. We’ll be back!
Once again Ranch A proved the perfect site to host our 5th annual geologic exploration field program from the SD School of Mines and Technology. Our students were provided with comfortable quarters, quiet study places and most of all the setting to explore and experience in a real-world setting what we’ve learned in the classroom.
