Welcome to the Buffalo Valley Cabins and Cafe
Yellowstone Lodging at The Buffalo Valley Ranch Cabins and Cafe are a real piece of history. Established September 1908 as a homestead by Henrietta and Charlie “Beavertooth” Neil. They used it as a trading post, working ranch, 8-cabin road camp and a restaurant. Charlie was well-known for his illegal fur trapping and his antics to evade the local Game Wardens. The trading post was always well-stocked with staples, and ice was cut from the Buffalo River to keep the food cool. A new store and home was built in the 1930′s which is the current home of the Buffalo Valley Cafe which offers a wide variety menu serving breakfast, lunch, & dinner. Lots of colorful, local characters, and good conversation are to be had at the cafe during it’s open season in the spring, summer, & fall.
Lodging at the ranch is in your choice of tastefully decorated log cabins with mini kitchens for your convenience. As you step out of your cabin, take a breath of fresh mountain air and watch the wranglers from a nearby ranch gathering their horses and mules.
Activities include horseback riding in the Buffalo Valley on experienced mountain horses, scenic float trips on 10 miles of the Snake River, and full day and half day fishing trips.
The location, overlooking the Buffalo Fork River with the majestic Tetons as a back-drop, makes the Buffalo Valley Ranch Cabins and Cafe great headquarters for your vacation into Grand Teton National Park (3 miles), Yellowstone National Park (27 miles), and Jackson (34 miles).
