A sanctuary for wildlife and people: Committed to Conservation. Unique Accommodations. Incredible Opportunities.
The Hutton Niobrara Ranch Wildlife Sanctuary is truly a sanctuary for wildlife and people alike. The ecologically diverse 5,000-acre sanctuary is devoted to prairie, woodland, wetland and aquatic wildlife and the habitats they rely on for existence. Like former landowners Harold and Lucille Hutton, we share the vision that wildlife, conservation and sustainable ranch management should be interconnected, and we also believe that nature-based tourism opportunities can play a vital role in efforts toward this vision. Because of this, the Sanctuary provides two different accommodation options as well as opportunities for a range of outdoor activities on and around the Sanctuary that help support our efforts. As a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, donations are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by the IRS, and the contributions from our guests go directly to support the Sanctuary and our conservation efforts.The Sanctuary offers two different self-catering homes, each option suited for couples, families or groups. The first option is the Hutton House, a sophisticated two-story ranch house, perfect for those seeking modern accommodations in a natural setting, with easy access to the outdoors. Second, the nearby Lazy Easy Ranch House provides comfortable simplicity with a perfect, shady setting ideal for active outdoor families or groups, or those just seeking a relaxing country retreat. Both houses give guests the chance to explore the Sanctuary, to hike on our trails, to bike or ski down country lanes, to horseback ride through the prairie, to witness unforgettable night skies, and to appreciate a spectrum of wildlife and biodiversity. This expansive and unique land is a pleasant place at every time of day and in every changing season. We hope you visit soon and be a part of our effort for conservation along the spectacularly scenic Niobrara River in Nebraska.
