The Ranch was built during the 1930s as an artists retreat. Built all of logs, it features a woodland amphitheater, lodge and a number of smaller cabins for artists and visitors. Unfortunately the founder passed away just two weeks before the retreat was to open. The property changed hands a number of times, for a time passing to the Boy Scouts of America which used it as a summer camp. Later, a private owner sold off some of the cabins, one of which was moved to Brackett Creek. You can view other parts of the Flaming Arrow Ranch by visiting the Silver Forest Bed and Breakfast, just south of Bridger Bowl.
