  • Wonderful stay!


    Quiet, nice place to get out and walk, too. Beautiful view. Close to Shell and Shell Canyon for getting up into the mountains. Kitchen was well-equipped, even with little things like spices and sugar. We enjoy quiet places that are tucked away, and this suited us perfectly!

    This remote property was comfortable and worked out for our family. The cabin was stocked with great linens, dishes and laundry area. The view is amazing and sunsets were beautiful. Internet was great. It was a super hot week and we were comfortable with the provided AC units and fans. Cabin has great artwork and loved the artistic touches and birds. We were visiting family 20 minutes away. I grew up on the opposite side of the BigHorns, so we had many days enjoying this side. Yellowstone, Cody and Beartooth canyon were nearby day trips. Amazing views and loved seeing wildlife. The dogs loved the walks in the country and in the mountains.

  • Great Little Cabin


    Our family planned a trip to the Bighorns and randomly picked this little cabin to stay at. We were very happy with our stay here. Everything you expect when staying at a rental (but don’t always get), plus some extra. We came out to ride our Side by side, which lots of good trails only about 30 minutes away. We did not feel the cabin lacked any amenities. There was a lot more room than expected, as we had plenty of room for cooking, eating, playing games, and just having a good time. Beautiful view of the bighorns from the front porch which was great in the morning and evening. My kids loved it, my wife loved it, and I loved it. This cabin really rounded out our trip perfectly. Thank you for the hospitality and we look forward to staying here the next time we come up to the area from Colorado.
