In the vast ranch-dotted plains below the headwaters of the mighty Green River, in the shadow of Wyoming's Wind River Mountains, and on the migration paths of several iconic Western species, the CL Bar Ranch is visited by more cattle and wildlife than people. This 7,906-acre ranch has seven move-in-ready cabins and lodges, privacy, a unique history, big views, a diversity of wildlife, infrastructure for a bison or cattle operation, and recreational opportunities ranging from horseback riding to snowmobiling. The Ranch feels wild, but there is a private airport that lies within 15 minutes, and the amenities of Jackson Hole are one hour away. The only addition the CL Bar Ranch needs to become the ultimate Western retreat is the next family to take the reins. Rare is a ranch that has livestock facilities to also have multiple existing homes, allowing a large family to immediately enjoy it. The CL Bar Ranch has five homes that range from 2,000-square feet to 7,000-square feet and also a cozy 700-square-foot recently remodeled historic guest cabin. These homeswhich have a total of 21 bedroomsare in addition to three that employees of the ranch have historically lived in.
The five homes and guest cabin are sited so occupants can come together but also have their own space. These homes are all just above Kitchen Reservoir and share a lawn, gardens, and mature shade trees. In the center of the lawn is a river
rock fireplace and chimney built in 1946 and turned into an outdoor gathering spot by the ranch's current owners. Just south of the main living compound is Wakanda, a 2,500-square-foot spa and exercise facility on the shore of Kitchen Reservoir. Complete with state of the art fitness equipment , plus a treatment room, Wakanda enjoys a majestic view across the Kitchen Reservoir towards the Wind River Mountains. The 5144 square ft Corral house is sited just west of main living compound overlooking Duck Creek. Built in 2018, Corral House is graced with the finest finishes and includes wood reclaimed from the ranch's old bison corrals.
Although the majority of the CL Bar's bison herd was recently donated to the Intertribal Buffalo Council, all of the infrastructure required by an active livestock operation remains, from corrals to 3,100 acres of irrigable meadows, rich grazing lands, 150 miles of fencing, a shop, office, garage, barn, and three homes for staff to live in. To once again be a working ranch, all the CL Bar needs is new livestock.
