There’s remarkable hospitality, and then there’s Magee Homestead, which sits head and shoulders above the rest. From the moment you pull through the property’s gates, your every need will be anticipated before you’re even aware of them yourself. From the staff calling each guest by name to the ultimate comfort and ease Magee exudes, it truly feels like coming home. You’ll never want for anything, and your every whim will be catered to.

Located adjacent to the picturesque Medicine Bow National Forest, the homestead rests on the stunning 30,000-acre Brush Creek Ranch property. Magee strikes the perfect balance of rustic and luxurious, allowing each guest to be immersed in nature without sacrificing the finer things in life. There’s plenty of opportunity to explore the rugged Wyoming wilderness, but not one ounce of the homestead experience skimps on quality. Each cabin is well-appointed, and considering the number of staff members always outnumbers the guests, the all-inclusive experience is well worth every penny. It’s guaranteed you’ll be planning your return visit before your stay is even over.

SLEEP

Nine historical cabins with luxury rooms and suites — which accommodate a maximum of 27 guests altogether — were painstakingly restored and appointed to the nines. The resort's limited number of guests keeps the experience exclusive and allows for the staff to be devotedly attentive to the individual desires of each person. The cabins provide two- and three-bedroom options for intimate gatherings, and the cozy one-bedroom abodes are the perfect hideaway for a romantic retreat. A “rent the homestead” reservation is also available for larger parties and those who prefer to have the place to themselves.  

EAT

Dining at Magee is as memorable as the homestead itself. Chef AJ Buchanio anchors his dishes with local ingredients — some as hyper-local as the 100-plus varieties of vegetables and fruits that grow in Magee’s on-property 6,480-square-foot greenhouse. Brush Creek Ranch is also one of only three properties worldwide licensed to raise the coveted Akaushi cattle, and to the delight of diners, the beef often appears on breakfast, lunch and dinner menus. Each meal at Magee is thoughtfully prepared and treated as an experience to be savored, whether it be breakfast at the lodge, a poolside lunch or dinner with a sunset view.

RELAX

Unwind in the grotto or step into the sauna before a signature treatment at the spa. Lounge by the full-service pool with a glass of rosé and an arrangement of crudités. Curl up with a book in the library. While away time in the saloon with a cocktail, where darts and billiards are available next to an inviting fireplace and bar. Step into the tranquil yurt for guided or unguided yoga and meditation. No matter what you choose, relaxation and repose are inescapable at Magee.

PLAY

Finding adventure on the homestead is a far cry from difficult. Start your stay with a guided ranger tour or an ATV adventure to explore the expansive property, where you’ll see pronghorn and horses aplenty. No matter what guests are interested in, there’s something for everyone: fly-fishing and stillwater fishing, horseback riding, cattle-driving, archery, shooting and a ropes course. Each excursion is with a small group, so you’ll get as much — or as little — individual instruction as you need.
