Rooted on the River Ranch Meeteetse, Wyoming



Just east of the jagged Absaroka range, the Greybull River braids its way through the wide-open Bighorn Basin. For centuries, both humans and animals have travelled along its banks. Rooted on the River Ranch is a living reminder of these travellers and the vibrance of communities that arise in such an empty landscape. The property’s plentiful natural resources and unique architecture make it an unforgettable place to visit — or spend a lifetime.

The Ranch Seldom will you find a ranch with water resources (and rights) as plentiful as Rooted on the River. The property comes with both junior and senior water rights, 300’ deep well that provides over 600 gallons per minute and a pivot irrigation system that waters the hayfields during arid Wyoming summers. Of course, Rooted on the River’s natural resources extend far beyond the hayfields. The property is home to a 1.6 mile stretch of the Greybull river, which is rich in native yellowstone cutthroat trout. As many local anglers will tell you, this stretch of river is considered a blue ribbon trout fishery, a distinction given by U.S. Fish and Wildlife to the highest quality waterways in the country. The property also comes with landowner hunting permits for elk, deer and antelope. Because the land is situated along seasonal migration routes, it is an excellent place to track wild game.

The original homestead farmhouse, while fully remodeled on the inside, upon entry you walk into the rustic elements of a log cabin to meet an abundance of natural light and functionality of a modern home. The bright custom cabinetry paired with the traditional wood fireplace brings a feeling of artistic balance and class. A richly illustrated tipi atop a large patio is a remembrance of the Crow people who passed through the basin on seasonal elk hunting expeditions. This structure can serve as a picnic area, plein air art studio or rustic guest house for a visitor.
