Owners, Amy & Michael Billings, purchased the 200 acre ranch in 2008, leaving behind city-life to fully indulge in nature. Dreamers at heart, they often imagined buffalo wandering among the lush pastures. In 2011, they took the plunge and acquired a young herd and feel blessed and honored to provide a home for such majestic, awe-inspiring creatures.

After witnessing the joy that visits brought to family and friends, they expanded their vision to include Buffalo Lodge, a premier destination for weddings, retreats, and getaways. The response went beyond expectations and led to the decision to build a state-of-the-art reception facility featuring green technology. The Roosevelt at Buffalo Lodge opens May 2014 and offers guests all the luxury they expect while being sensitive to the beauty that surrounds it.
