They say, “the past is always present” in Cody, Wyoming, the rodeo capital of the world. Founded by William Frederick Cody – “Buffalo Bill”, Cody is the gateway community to Yellowstone National Park and has access to five Scenic byways and many western cultural events. Most notably, the annual Cody Stampede Rodeo, held between June and August, is one of the largest Professional Pro Cowboys Associations’ rodeos in the nation, and in 2019, the rodeo will celebrate its 100th anniversary.
Monster Lake Ranch Resort is located 8 miles outside of Cody, and 8 miles from Yellowstone Regional Airport. The Eddleman Family, owners and visionaries of the ranch exude great knowledge and passion for creating a western experience that offers visitors the natural wonders of the range and a special connection with animals. With an equine lineage dating back to the early 1900’s, the family has been around horses and rodeos all their lives, established a world-renowned angler sanctuary and are inspired to share America’s western beauty and antiquity with people from all over the world.
Also to note, Wyoming is a top-tier tax friendly state for landownership and business – offering substantial reductions in federal income taxes by strategic use of conservation easements.

This exquisite 295 +/- acre property features a 120 +/- acre private, freshwater lake – known as Quick Lake, an ornate and popular local restaurant and saloon, ranch-style event venue, a maintenance shop, office building and ranch improvements – including horse barns, sheds, corrals, storage facilities and a state-of-the-art shooting range. This property is accessed from State Hwy 120, off Nielson Road, and includes water rights.
The charming western resort can accommodate weddings and group meetings along with the newly-constructed Rabbit Hutch, a two-full bathroom facility for Convention and Camping guests and a bridal suite for wedding parties to utilize and enjoy.
Bliss Restaurant and Cutthroat Saloon have been magically transformed from a Barnyard into an authentic western-style dining and gathering place – with barn stalls that are now appointed family dining rooms, the Saloon created from the hay loft and bathrooms with penny-floors and snuff-can ceilings. This is the best place around for guests and locals to visit, relax, listen to live music, cowboy poetry and Native-American storytelling.
Quick Lake property Lodging is within walking distance to the restaurant and saloon and includes two ranch manager homes and eight luxury cabins that can accommodate up to 20 guests. There are one and two-bedroom suites with full kitchen and living room options and absolutely breathtaking 360-degree ranch views of the high plains, green and yellow covered buttes and Quick Lake.
The glassy blue trophy lake has the perfect recipe to grow large fish, where fresh water shrimp and every lifecycle of insects are abundant. Snowcapped mountains provide a tranquil backdrop while sandstone cliffs continually change with the sun and shadows. Variations of seasonal grass draw in deer, antelope and elk and a healthy population of upland game birds thrive on the ranch. Monster Lake Ranch Resort currently offers guided fishing, pheasant & chukar hunting, horse trail riding, geology and photography tours in the Rim Rocks and general cattle ranching. This is the place to take the longshot and catch the monster fish.
