Excellent place to stay

The wife and I spent a solid week at Jerry's K# Guest Ranch. The outside breakfasts were delicious and plentiful. Jerry is an excellent host. Debbie an excellent outdoor cook. He and his staff were engaging and friendly. They offered assistance and advice on where to eat, what to see, and how to get around. The grounds are well kept, quiet, and private, offering good views of the surrounding countryside.The horses are friendly and entertaining. Deer and rabbits appeared often. Using K3 as a base, we traveled to Yellowstone, Chief Joseph Scenic Highway, Thermopolis, Legend Rock---watch out for rattle snakes at Legend Rock---Big Horn Mountains, Little Big Horn, and a few other places. Each evening after a day of sightseeing we found K3 a really peaceful, quiet, and welcome respite. Breakfast prepared outside on the open fire were varied and delicious, omelets, pancakes, french toast, home fries, fried or scrambled eggs, fruit, juice. Also served is some really good honey from Jerry's own bees. We took some home. There are plenty of good eating places in Cody, Adriano's, Wyoming Chop House, Granny's, The new German restaurant was good too. The Front Porch in Thermopolis offered a delicious and reasonable priced lunch. We'll be going back to the K3 the next time we travel to Cody.

Excellent place to hang your hat!

We only stayed one night in the Sheepherder's Wagon, but i wish we could have stayed longer. The Sheepherder's Wagon was so incredibly cozy! It was the best night's sleep we've had in a long time! Jerre was very accommodating and as was the rest of the staff. It was kind of like your family away from home. The outside breakfast in the morning was so welcoming and fresh! We would definitely recommend the K3 Bed and Breakfast to anyone!

We loved this place -- Great alternative to hotels

I can't say enough good things about the K3 B & B. We had such a wonderful time and my kids (boys 9 & 14) still talk about it being the coolest place they have ever stayed. We travel a lot and have experience with all inclusive resorts and other B&Bs. This still tops the list. Since we live Maryland now (but my husband and I are originally from ND), we wanted our kids to have a nice traditional Wyoming experience as we traveled across the state, and this overnight stay fit in perfectly with our "adventure". From the decor throughout the house and property, to the food, and the isolated peaceful location--it was all the perfect package for us. I would highly recommend this place and stay here again.

The BEST place to stay in Cody Hands Down!

The most genuine people you'll ever meet! We stayed in the Glamorous Hideout Tent... see pics attached... It was wonderful! It included a bottle of wine and some snacks for those late night cravings... Jerry, his wife and crew were very welcoming and the breakfasts were filling and delicious! When we arrived we had just driven over 1500 miles... we were tired to say the least... the town of Cody was just down the street (maybe a 5 to 7 minute drive) which was perfect and Jerry recommended a GREAT Italian restaurant where the food was tasty and filling had wonderful atmosphere and also was affordable... we liked it sooo much we ate there for the 2 nights we were in town... the town is far enough away so that at night you can see the stars like never before but close enough you don't mind the scenic drive... The rooms were clean and very well kept... the bathroom was spacious... the bed SUPER comfy... it was like a little oasis off the beaten path... seriously... if you are planning on seeing Yellowstone or visit Cody... this is the place to be HANDS DOWN!

K3 Ranch is amazing! The hosts, the atmosphere, the food, the scenery...I could go on and on. My sister and I stayed for one night on our cross-country road trip and had the time of our lives. The staff is very welcoming and treated us as family. The food was cooked outside on the open grill and was delicious! I have no complaints and would come back in a heartbeat.

Everything in a B&B & More!!!

Arrived at a motel in-town with the wrong reservation date. Propriator called the K-3 Ranch and Jerry came to pick us up (they had an available room).We followed Jerry to his and Bette's ranch. We were not sure what to expect or where the heck we were going, but to our delight, it was the most enjoyable night we spent on our 7 night venture through Wyoming. Thank You Jerry and Betrte.

We received great hospitality from the owner, his wife, & staff! This B&B is full of style and personality with all the attention to detail and decorations! Awesome family style breakfast every morning and beautiful scenery! If you want rest or entertainment...they have it all! We had a great 2 nights stay and would definitely come back again!

Loved it!

We felt as if we were staying with our favorite aunt and uncle. The staff at K3 was very welcoming, and Jerry kept us entertained. He also proved to be very helpful offering many things to do in the area. We loved our trip and hope to return to the K3 soon.
