Crossed Sabres Ranch

History of the Ranch

The Ranch, constructed in 1898 by Aron “Tex” Holm, was used as a home base to carry tourists from Cody on camping expeditions into Yellowstone. He formed the Holm Transportation Company and provided transportation to Yellowstone by stagecoach and later by motorbus. The original stagecoach barn still stands on the ranch today. The name “Holm’s Lodge” was later changed to Crossed Sabres Ranch based on the image used for its stock brand. Crossed Sabres is still an ideal place to stay as it is located just 8 miles from the East Entrance of Yellowstone and only a short drive to historic Cody, Wyoming. This positioning provides guests easy access to one of our Nation’s most dramatic National Parks as well as the opportunity to experience many other activities such as the famous Cody Night Rodeo which takes place every night during the summer months. For the outdoor lover, the ranch sits on the banks of the North Fork of the Shoshone River, home to world class fly fishing and coveted Yellowstone cutthroat trout. Sitting within the 2.2 million acre Shoshone National Forest just outside Yellowstone, guests can experience an abundance of wildlife viewing opportunities without stepping a foot off the ranch. Crossed Sabres Ranch has a comfortable main lodge, a western saloon, and 19 cabins situated around Libby Creek, which casually meanders through the Ranch property. Whether you head out for an all-day horseback ride, spend your day reeling in monster trout, or simply relax on your front porch to the sounds of Libby Creek, Crossed Sabres is sure to create lasting memories and the vacation of a lifetime for you and your family.



Crossed Sabres Ranch offers activities including horse back riding, fishing on the river, Yellowstone National Park, a kid’s program, city of Cody, the Cody Nite Rodeo, hiking and rafting.
