Historic Working Cattle Ranch

We See Ourselves Much Like We See The Land

Rooted in History

When the pioneers surged westward in the late 1800s and established homesteads along the way, what they left in their path was a strong legacy of hard work and sustainability. Brush Creek Ranch and our growing collection of historic properties continue in this tradition, operating as authentic cattle ranches.

Early Settlers

For centuries, the Saratoga region was an important locale for Native Americans who made the journey to visit the natural hot springs. Saratoga quickly became a hub for incoming American settlers, trappers, and loggers in the late 19th Century.

In 1884, the Sterrett brothers settled the land that would eventually become Brush Creek Ranch, building the original homestead with logs cut, skid, and hauled from what is now part of Medicine Bow National Forest.

Bruce and Beth White

In 2008, Brush Creek Ranch was acquired by Bruce White, Chairman and CEO of White Lodging, one of the most respected names in the hotel industry and operator of award-winning premium hotel brands across the country. Brush Creek Ranch is the culmination of the White family’s extensive hospitality experience, continuous dedication to philanthropy, and unabashed passion for the sustainability of authentic western heritage. Their vision unfolds as a refined 30,000-acre getaway that strikes a perfect balance between active outdoor recreation, shared experiences, and preservation of the western way of life. After Bruce’s passing in 2023, the family continues his passion for the Ranch, committing to restoring historic buildings, cultivating grazing pastures, and supporting the natural ecosystem. Bruce’s legacy will carry on the rich traditions of ranching, hospitality, and environmental stewardship.

Preserving the Western Spirit

While our world is changing at an ever-quickening pace, the need to uphold the past and western ranch heritage is even more imperative. The spirit of recreation, adventure, and good times shared together prevails in the archives of the Ranch, from famous barn and campfire cookouts to cattle drives and fishing on the renowned Brush Creek. This authentic heritage is visibly apparent in the current incarnation as a luxury guest ranch, and despite a plethora of modern amenities, Brush Creek Ranch is still a true working cattle ranch.
