About Sierra or Bob Smith

Bob and Sierra Smith, full time residents of Saratoga, Wyoming, are both avid horseback riders and outdoors people. Bob has lived in the valley since 1981, and was in the fishing/hunting outfitting business for over 25 years. Few people know more about the valley than he does. Both Bob and Sierra have a love of the outdoors and all that this special valley has to offer. They keep their 4 personal horses there on site and love sharing their love of riding, fishing, hiking, four wheeling and wildlife viewing with newcomers to the area.

Sierra or Bob Smith purchased this guest house in 2006

Why Sierra or Bob Smith chose Saratoga

We purchased this property as our private residence where we could have our horses right at home with us. What is now our guesthouse was originally simply used as a separate storage building on the property and was not initially purchased as a vacation rental. After a complete renovation of the main house, the storage unit was then also completely renovated and turned into a beautiful guesthouse. After some thought and much encouragement from family and friends, it was decided to offer the guesthouse commercially for nightly and weekly rentals.

What makes this guest house unique

Incredible mountain views; amazing star filled night skies; peace and quiet; access to 2 floatable rivers for fly fishing, wade fishing, canoeing; unlimited places to view wildlife, hike, four wheel, horseback ride, cross country ski, snowmobile....just about anything you would want to do outside can be done in Saratoga. Saratoga also has a natural mineral hot pool that is open 24/7 all year long and is free to the public; and it's just 5 minutes from the guesthouse. Bob & Sierra will be happy to make advance preparations if guests would like to horseback ride, fly fish down the river, take a scenic river float, go four wheeling or make dinner reservations for guests at Saratoga's exceptional steakhouse, The Wolf Hotel.

Perfect Vacation Spot

  • 5 of 5

We had one of the best vacations of our lives here at Roan Hill. The beautiful view, the comfort of the charming Guesthouse, having horses just steps away and Rowdy the Border Collie ready to play were delightful. And Sierra and Bob, the owners, made everything perfect, and we felt welcome immediately. Everything was as described, very clean and in tip-top shape and beautifully decorated. Sierra’s artistic gifts really make everything special. And since we eat in a lot, we were delighted with the kitchen. We enjoyed eating at Bella’s Bistro and Lollipop, and shopping at Laura M, in Saratoga, and picnics in the Snowy Range, day trips to Encampment and the Sierra Madre, time with the horses and Rowdy, and best of all, talks and new friendships with Bob and Sierra. Can’t wait to go back to our new favorite place! We’ve already booked for next year, and it can’t come too soon.

Owner's Response: Wow! Reviews like this make all the effort worthwhile don’t they? For some people, having a well stocked base to venture out from and come back to is way more important than knowing there is a Starbucks’s right downtown (which there isn’t 😁?.). Most people’s lives are more hectic than they want it to be, so what we offer is beautiful scenery, well appointed kitchen, comfortabl beds, fully stocked kitchen, privacy, friendly townspeople, abundant wildlife, peace and quiet, stress free dining and hosts who truly care about your experience.

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our trip. Saratoga is beautiful and Bob and Sierra are great hosts. They gave us great information about what to do in Saratoga and even made us reservations to the wonderful restaurant called Bella's in town!

Owner's Response: We love to hear that our guests are happy with their stay with us! It is very important that they know we are here for them in every way we can be. Some accommodations are delighted to take your money, but that is about where customer service ends. Not at Roan Hill Ranch Guesthouse. You are our guests and knowing you are taken care of makes sleeping at night a whole lot easier!

Peaceful Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Perfect little guest house. Charming decor, in true Wyoming style. Owners are near by if you need anything, but are sure to respect your privacy. Bob and Sierra are very accomodating, and very knowledgeable about the surrounding area and activities. We had a wonderful stay at the Roan Hill Ranch, it is such a pleasure to meet people like Bob and Sierra. Hope to visit again in the near future.

Owner's Response: Unless someone has been to Saratoga before, they are not always sure what to expect, so we make every effort to make sure we provide as much information as possible about our beautiful little town and the surrounding areas. Even though we are small, the charm of Saratoga is hard to beat. We have all the modern conveniences anyone would need, but things move at a slower pace. No one is in a big hurry to do anything. So it's very relaxing and peaceful, which is what most folks are looking for anyway.

We were only able to stay one night, but we loved our hosts as well as our accommodations!

We would most certainly stay here again if in the area! Highly recommend ... our hosts thought of everything! Pillows and bed were comfortable, kitchen well stocked (better than most!) ... it was just great.

Owner's Response: It's really rewarding to know that even if our guests only have one night to spend with us, they can and do appreciate how we strive to offer a welcoming, comfortable and unique place to stay. We have tried to ensure that nothing our guests need is out of reach, whether its help making dinner reservations, or the right pillow to sleep with, we are willing to do our best to accommodate them! We invite you to come see for yourself!

Great Base for Hiking

  • 4 of 5

Accommodations are very comfortable with genuine western character, including horses on the property. The location in Saratoga offers quick access to a brewery, hot springs pool and other restaurants and bars. Owners Bob and Sierra are great hosts and are very helpful in choosing options for activities and meals. We were able to explore the Snowy Range and Sierra Madre with lots of scenic hiking.

Owner's Response: There are so many beautiful spots to explore in Carbon County, and Saratoga is a hidden gem. With quick access from our property to great places to hike, fish, picnic and sight see it isn't hard to understand why people love visiting here. We try to be sure our guests have a comfortable and inviting home base to return to after a full day of exploration, and so far it seems our formula works!

Gorgeous view, comfy stay, nature lover's dream!

  • 5 of 5

We are so happy to have found this little gem! I will never want to stay a hotel again!! Gorgeous views, rustic setting (but very clean & beautifully decorated), every amenity, close to town and activities (hiking, hot springs, shooting range)... I could go on and on!! I also love all the details here... lots of TLC in this place!! Sierra and Bob are super friendly and helpful!! My favorite part are their four wonderful, friendly horses just outside! As a nature and animal lover, this is a little peice of heaven!!!! I highly recommend this little beauty. We will definitely be back :)

Owner's Response: Wow! The little things really do make a difference don't they? Our guesthouse is uniquely situated on the northwest bench on the outskirts of town, so one feels like they are in the country but are in reality only minutes from town. The views are second to none, and since we only host one party at a time, it's very private and quiet. The only folks you have to interact with are us! And we respect your privacy, so if what you are looking for is peace and quiet, you've got it. Plus, our guesthouse is so pleasant to be in that some folks say they don't want to leave!
