The Romance of the Old West, The Comforts of the New
The Wolf Hotel opened on New Year’s Eve, 1893, with a gala masquerade ball and sumptuous dinner. The two-and-a-half story Victorian-style structure was built for $6,000 by German immigrant Frederick G. Wolf. Soon nicknamed “The Grand Old Gal” of the North Platte Valley, the hotel is still going strong after more than 120 years.
In fact, The historic Wolf Hotel and Restaurant is the place where people gather in Saratoga, Wyoming. Anchoring downtown Saratoga, The Wolf is within walking distance to shopping, free natural hot springs, and the North Platte River, a Blue Ribbon fishery. Concerts, art shows, rodeos and bull riding are highlights of the summer season, along with fishing, floating, hiking, hunting, skiing and snowmobiling enjoyed in the fall and winter.At the end of March, Saratoga hosts the Wyoming Open International Pool Tournament.
Listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1972, the Hotel Wolf has seen several incarnations in her years of existence. She served as a stage-stop on the C.M. Scribner Walcott to Encampment Stage Line, a barber shop, a guiding/outfitting service, an art gallery, and even a drive-through package liquor store. Local owners and managers Douglass and Kathleen Campbell have restored the hotel to appear much as it did on its opening day, and added modern conveniences and amenities to ensure your stay in this beloved icon of Old Wyoming is an enjoyable one.
