About Us

The Wild West Retreat has been a dream for Shannon and Jenifer since 1996.  Their appreciation for all things cowboy and Western comes through in the wonderful architectural details ever present throughout the barn building, from the solid Ponderosa tree trunk to the gnarled root that doubles as a door handle.

Shannon and Jenifer have been hosting private dinners for groups of 12 – 500 that they cook in their traditional dutch-ovens over a bed of coals.  The old west has never tasted so good!  Their beautifully landscaped grounds are part of the dining experience.

The addition of the Historic Escalante Showhouse to the Wild West Retreat Family started in 2013, With the award of a Rural Economic Development Grant, determination, and hard work, the showhouse went from a derelict relic of 1938 to the center of the communities entertainment.  Hand polished floors, antique barn door stage sides, and authentic movie posters give the facility the most unique atmosphere anywhere.
