A Wyoming ranch is renting out its nine lavish cabins for a steep price tag of $25,000 a night, allowing those lucky enough to afford it a prime location to get away from the coronavirus. 

Magee Homestead, nestled in Saratoga, even has a minimum price tag of $175,000 for those hoping to stay at least seven nights. 

Part of the high end Relais & Chateaux group of hotels, Magee Homestead is located on 30,000 acres of private land that is fully accessible to guests who love being surrounded by nature.

Magee had been planning on staying closed for the entire 2020 season, only keeping their Lodge and Spa business opened for interested families, CNN Travel reports.

Management planned to consolidate staff to just one property, thinking the Lodge would attract the most visitors. 

But soon they ‘started to get a lot of inquiries about private buyouts,’ said proprietor Jeremy Belnap. 

‘Families were really interested in getting away; traveling, dreaming and seeing their families again, if they weren’t all in quarantine together,’ he said. ‘So, we thought it made a lot of sense to open up to buyouts.’ 

A few weeks after announcing availability, four groups booked to stay. One group plans to stay for 14 days.

‘We’ll probably do eight to 10 weeks of business there this summer,’ Belnap added.

The normal schedule normally runs from June 20 to the end of September, so the property has been able to salvage a decent portion of their season. Rooms are normally $1,000 a night per person, with a minimum of two guests per room. 

Belnap and his staff are able to expand experiences with private buyouts, however. 

‘We’ll iron out all of their likes and dislikes,’ Belnap explained. ‘If they really want to do an Italian or Mexican night, we’ll create it. We can really get custom with the group’s desires.’    


Everyone gets a room! In total, there are 12 bedrooms that can take a group of upwards of 27 people in one group

The resort is taking extra precautions to ensure safety in response to the coronavirus, with all staff required to wear masks – and gloves when needed. The hotel will provide optional ones for guests.  

A dedicated team watches over each group’s stay, so that random staff don’t come and go from each property. 

‘You can build relationships [with the staff], but also know that you don’t have a different server every single day, exposing yourself to that many more people,’ added Belnap.

Since the property is closed to all but one party at a time, there is no need to space out tables in the dining room. 

‘If you have the whole place to yourself, there will be some amount of normalcy,’ said Belnap.
