Master Guides of Marabou

‘In contrast to the earthy ruggedness of this authentic working Ranch is a world class amenity experience that tells an appealing story of community, seclusion, luxury and nature.’

Unique to Marabou is the Master Guide program. This program allows residents, young or old, to learn the lore of their passion with true masters. From fly-fishing the Elk River with World Class Fly fisherman Pat Stefanek to riding the trails on horseback with World Champion Steer Wrestler and Marabou Ranch Manager Chad Bedell, residents and their guests will enjoy the teachings of many disciplines by Olympians and World Class champions.
