Located only four miles from the western base of the Big Horn Mountains, Lazy Spring Ranch is a 300 acre active cattle ranch that spans the lush valley watered by Beaver Creek. The home, constructed in 2010, compliments the tranquility of Shell Valley. In the morning, watch the sun rise above mountains that soar to 10,000 feet above sea-level and 5,800 feet above the ranch. Much of the summer, cattle graze the fertile fields along with deer and dozens of birds including Blue Herons, pheasants, and sage hens and an occasional flock of Sand Hill cranes.

The house, including its large windows and open floor plan decorated with antiques and artwork, welcomes both conversation and quiet. Our well-appointed kitchen, luxurious bedding, linens and towels and a wide range of recreational and spa facilities combine to create a unique and personal experience for you and your fellow guests. Besides the 6 bedroom Guest House, a farmhouse rented by a local family sits nearby to keep you from feeling isolated. You will often see their horses grazing in the field next to the barn.

Our hostess Laura, a delightful and friendly neighbor, welcomes guests and answers questions about the house, the ranch, and the Shell community. She is available for private hire should you request cleaning services beyond those offered in the package.


The Beaver Creek community includes friendly and helpful neighbors, several of whom are listed in the house directory. To further ease the doubts of visitors who are unused to seclusion and quiet, the house includes a security gate across the driveway, a monitored security system, and exterior cameras. A combination of wooden rail fences, three-wire cattle fencing, and electrified fences surround the house to deter cattle and most wild animals, though, deer have been known to ignore the buzz. Either Laura or the family who live in the second ranch house can be called in the case of an emergency.


The Lazy Spring Ranch is a smoke-free environment designed primarily for adults, but children are welcome. Appropriate fencing surrounds the house, separating visitors from the ranch and its animals, but children must be accompanied by adults and those adults must accept responsibility for the dangers associated with a working ranch. Such hazards include the creek, irrigation ditches, electrified fences and large roaming animals.
