For centuries, the Saratoga, Wyoming region was a destination for Native Americans who came for the area’s natural hot springs. As American frontiersmen pushed westward in the late 19th century, it quickly became a hub for settlers, trappers, and loggers. The Sterrett brothers settled the land that would become Brush Creek Ranch in 1884, building the original homestead with logs cut, skid, and hauled from the adjacent area which is now part of Medicine Bow National Forest. The spirits of hard work, recreation, and adventure are prevalent in the archives of days past at the Ranch. This heritage is still apparent in the current incarnation of the land used as a luxury guest ranch, and visitors will find homage paid to these ideas all around them, meshed seamlessly with a plethora of modern amenities.
Brush Creek Ranch was first acquired in 2008 by Bruce White, Chairman and CEO of White Lodging, one of the most respected names in the hotel industry, and operator of award-winning premium hotel brands across the country. The White family has since acquired additional historic Ranchlands and unveiled new luxury ranch resorts where the spirit of hard work, recreation, and adventure are as prevalent today as in the archives of days past. The family’s vision unfolds as a highly refined 30,000-acre destination, striking a perfect balance between active outdoor recreation, shared experiences, personal renewal, economic sustainability, and preservation of the Western way of life.
