If you're looking to get in touch with yourself—or your traveling companion—the banks of Piney Creek may well be the place. In the foothills of the Big Horns, this tranquil Old West–style ranch is as relaxed as it gets. The four bedrooms in the restored 1912 house, as well as modern rooms and cabins around the property, are given a warm Western feel by gnarled wood lamps, quilt-covered beds, and comfy throws for cool nights. Most accommodations open onto spacious
decks where you can read, watch the sun set, or just gaze at the Canada geese, grazing horses, and towering cottonwoods. Do some mountain-stream fishing or take a pack trip to mountain lakes. Good for family reunions and retreats.
