We stayed at Buffalo Valley Ranch on Sept. 7 in one of the Wagons. We were near the park but far from any amenities other than what the location offered. The wagon was fun, but there were no sheets or pillowcases, not sure if we were supposed to get some during check in. The area was very nice and peaceful. The bathrooms left much to be desired. They were very dirty, I can understand the floor being dirty, but the toilets, sinks, baseboards could have been washed easily. I actually cleaned the middle restroom to make sure I could step on the floor while showering. It smelled strong of urine. Now, the CAFE, avoid it if you can. Horrible service! I felt like I was on the Twilight Zone watching the girl behind the counter treat people as if she was bi-polar. As soon as we got there I could sense she wasn't a great service provider because there was already a girl asking for something with a frustrated look on her face. We sat down after waiting to be helped for a couple minutes, only to find out (after I asked) from two ladies that seemed to work at the ranch whether we had to go up to the counter to order. They said "yes m'am". We went to the front to look at the menu and came back with our order. When I said I wanted a salad, the girl at the counter said "I'm not making salads right now.", I went back to the menu and came back with a new order. A chicken sandwich, non-apologetically she tells me "We don't have chicken right now" or something along those lines. I start walking away again to look at the menu again, but stop to ask her "What DO you have?". I was very annoyed by now, but kept my cool as I had nowhere else to choose from. She smirked and turned around as she mumbled something. I ended up selecting a Club sandwich. The food was good and the cost was ok for being out in the middle of nowhere, but I could not stop watching her after that and observed how she was rude to pretty much every patron. Not letting them know that they had to go to the entry to select off the menu or that all menu items were not available. She was offering guests one beer for now and one for later without telling them that each beer would cost them $4 each (I only know this because my brother-in-law accepted the beers only to feel bamboozled later). I saw so many people accept the offer of "Do you want a beer now and a second one later?" There was a man that appeared to be East Indian who seemed mild-mannered, but she was rude to him a couple times. After he got his food he went up to the counter for something and she raised her voice at him saying, "We're eco-friendly here and if you don't like it you can just leave!", the man began to walk away and she added, "And you don't have to come back". Another set of people apparently were charged for a Root Beer something and she didn't give it to them, but they seemed to think she had charged them for it. She ended up asking them to look up the transaction in their online banking while she looked on the register because I guess she didn't give them a receipt. She couldn't find it and just told them, "If I didn't give it to you, I'm certain I didn't charge you for it". I thought, "you charged us for our drinks and forgot to give them to us!". The guy who had been chit-chatting with her initially didn't seem so happy anymore. Another couple, after going through almost the same intro as me, ordered two meals to eat there and a third one to go and she said "Ok, I can do that but it'll be $5 extra." She wasn't kidding, apparently the to go boxes are very expensive in Wyoming. I also found out we were charged a dollar for each of our waters. The guy bringing out the food had the personality of Lurch from the Adams. At the end of the meal my brother-in-law noticed she automatically gave herself a tip on his receipt. Avoid this Cafe, especially if you see a petite girl, about late twenties to mid-thirties, long hair with bangs and glasses behind the counter by herself. She even had the audacity to say she loved her job too much to worry about a tip after she raised her voice at the East Indian patron. Buy

Hidden out on Buffalo Valley Road there is food history and the lovely View. If you didn't know this Cafe was here, you wouldn't drive out Buffalo Valley Road. The ranch is one of the oldest ranches in Wyoming and the cafe is actually in one of the original buildings.

Two miles down the long winding dirt road [16945 Buffalo Valley Rd] off the main highway [287/26] is the Buffalo Valley Café, a throwback to the early 1900s. The Café is in rather small wood and log building; the bar has with eight seats at the bar (The barstools are a bit uncomfortable because there’s no foot rest) plus there are six heavy wooden tables and chairs, which were comfy but the seats were hard. The backbar is a hodge-podge of beer taps, expresso machine, TV, old signs, shirts for sale, and setups on an old marble-topped wooden breakfront. Somehow it all looks authentic…. Behind the bar is a kitchen and behind the kitchen is a gift store and offices. When you enter you come into a screen porch area which is decorated with old metal license plates and beer and liquor signs; inside was filled with western style decorations and with lots of old dollar bills and foreign currency stabled to the rafters. Hardwood floors, open ceiling, lots of toys and other paraphernalia hanging down from the ceiling. Very rustic, very western and actually very pleasant... Limited menu. But good food. I had the Angus cheeseburger which tasted fantastic, grilled just right with mushrooms, bacon, chilies, avocado, & onions - delicious. You could tell that the burger patty was made by hand as it wasn’t symmetrical. TERRY had a great chef salad with homemade Thousand Island dressing... The seasoned fries are very good except they were not crisp. Overall it was a nice experience.

I was honestly hesitant to book this place based off some of the reviews I was reading beforehand....I'm so glad I didn't listen. We were so pleasantly surprised...this place is amazing!..the staff was great..the location was excellent and the views of the Tetons and surroundings were perfect! We stayed in the wagon..we loved the wagon..it was bigger than expected and was clean..clean
linens,towels, pillows and blankets were provided to us...the bathroom/shower trailer was way nicer than we thought it was going to be and was clean too..my boyfriend and I had the best Labor Day weekend stay here...oh and p.s. they have good burgers at the cafe....we cannot wait to visit Buffalo Valley Ranch again.

First and foremost, it’s important to have the right expectation coming here. There is a mixed review on TA, both excellent and horrible. I am definitely a little worried, but the dude ranch experience does seem interesting, so we thought we’d try it for 1 day. And I think 1 day is just right for us.

The Good and the not so bad:
The location is excellent, a few miles north of the Grand Teton north entrance. It has a view of the Tetons from the property. In the morning, around 8am, the horses ride into the ranch with Teton as the background, quite a view.

We stayed at a Conestoga Wagon, it has a king bed and 2 bunk beds, so can sleep 6. We got plenty of blankets and I asked for extra after reading reviews about the coldness at night even in August. it has electricity, a heater which merely takes the edge off the coldness at night. And we didn’t use it at night, it was too loud. The temperature drops to the 40’s at night. The blankets kept us pretty warm, but anything not covered by the blanket (my face, and clothes I am trying to put on) were cold. Our wagon was very close to the office, and we had good wifi signals.

Buffalo Valley Ranch shares the lodge with Heart Six Ranch. The lodge has a nice common room, with typical western decor (antler chandelier, stuffed bison heads, etc). Has a pool table, which needs some love. Very good wifi there.

Bad
The biggest problem with the ranch is cleanliness. It seems that it’s just short on staff. We got our linen after checking-in. And we made our own bed with the fresh linen. The idea is that they get dirty if they were left in the wagon. This makes sense. There is no table or chair inside the wagon. So, most of our stuff go on the floor. Only a small area next to the bed where we can put water bottled, etc. One area behind the bed, which is meant to put knickknacks was dirty. It’s just coming from the dust in the ranch. And it seems difficult to avoid. But this is something that having more staff should take care of.

There is 1 bathroom with shower (1 for men, 1 for women) near the office, very dirty. We didn’t use that. There are shower up on the hills that are cleaner.

Yes, it smells like horse and there is horse dung everywhere. One of my child is into horsebackridding and has no problem, the other one complains about it.

Cafe:
Great view of the Teton Range. There is no other option in the area, so we have to eat here. It’s not that good. The food inside National park is not much more expensive but much tastier. At dinner time, there were a lot of fliers inside the cafe. We opted to sit outside. Breakfast wasn’t bad.

All in all, the price of staying in a wagon or tepee is a fraction of what a room in Jackson cost. If saving money matters and one is open to difference experiences, 1 night stay is ok, especially with smaller children.

For a few weeks, I’ve tried reaching this property owner to make a cancellation . I’ve called, leaving messages for a return phone call - Nothing, I’ve emailed - nothing. I purchased the cancellation insurance and regardless of my efforts, I will not be refunded. I feel so screwed over and, furthermore, I believe these people are con artist.

Complete novice just bought Heart Six and Buffalo Valley Ranch. She has a lot to learn.
First room: I signed a “no animals” clause and there was a dog in the next room, thru thin recently-built walls. No drinking cups. Cheap door locks (they will go nuts replacing key- and seemingly already have). No handrail on stair. Broken window. Rolls of carpet standing in the corner.lobby door can be (and was) inadvertently locked by guest.
Second room: no toilet paper. Drinking cups were outside on sill.
Clowning glory: free WiFi but you are asked for full name, email, and date of birth. Owner may use data in any way she wishes. And terms of use prohibit annoyance, inconvenience or needless anxiety to any person.
It accepts all fake data, however!
Just beware.

Staff were stretched thin this time of year, but I can't complain. We got a hot meal and cold drinks at the end of a full day driving through the Park last weekend of the season (aka.... basically NO SERVICES). Nice greatroom. Pool table could use some love, but my kids and I enjoyed playing anyhow... Especially loved watching them bring the horses in from pasture while eating breakfast.

First and foremost this is a working dude ranch. It shares its facilities with the Heart 6 Ranch next door.
Yes, its dusty....yes you can at times smell, hear and see the animals. It's how it is suppose to be.
We stayed in a Conestoga wagon which had a king size bed and four bunks. Had heat, electric and USB connection. WIFI was good.
Clean facilities
Friendly staff
Beautiful view of the Tetons
Kids would love it here.

I stayed at the ranch for a week.

The ranch is situated less than 4 miles from the grand Teton National Park and on top of a hill overlooking It!

Great place to stay, staff were friendly and facilities were good.

I went on the horse riding activity which was a unique experience that I would recommend.

I was theres as part of a 4 month trip of the USA and it has to be situatied in one of the wildest places I visited.

I stayed in a teepee. This is a glamping trip essentially so be prepared. It was cold at night but to be expected. Heater and gas were supplied by the resort.

The bar and restaurant is a pretty awesome spot and you have free access to a pool table.

I would 100% go back if I were to do this trip again.
