Martin and Kathrin Stucki purchased this cabin in 2012
For the love of the mountains, the trout, the deer and the peace. This property embraces nature. It is set into the beating heart of the Yellowstone Ecosystem. Its pristine waters are filled with native trout. The millions of acres of forest that back up to the house bring moose, elk and deer visitors. Bald and Golden Eagle are circling over hundreds of miles of snow mobile and cross country tracks.
A trip to Dubois town is 12 minutes. Jackson Hole with its fine dining, world class ski resorts and influential art galleries are just an hour and a half drive from the chalet.
Full Mountain view from the kitchen and bedroom.
Fishing and hunting without getting into the car.
Cozy wood-burning oven
garage for a car or snow toys
Horse barn or RV-Hook-up upon request.
Martin and Kathrin are wonderful. We had some family issues that caused us to change our travel dates, and they were very understanding and accommodating. The cabins are very nice and comfortable. I would definitely recommend this place for others to stay.
We stayed in the Moose Calf Cabin at the Big Diamond Ranch in December. We came out to Wyoming for the beautiful scenery. We have been traveling to this part of the country for many years and usually stay in town but we wanted a cabin closer to the snowmobiling trails and this location was perfect for our family. The cabins are relatively new, clean and comfortable and very reasonably priced for the area. There are only three cabins on the property and they are spaced out nicely not crammed together like a lot of cabin rentals.
We have three teenagers and hotel rooms are too cramped and impersonal. The cabin had everything we needed-two bedrooms, kitchen, family room, bathroom and a washer and dryer. Martin and Kathrin were extremely helpful and answered all of our questions about the lodging and the area. They made sure we had everything we needed and provided suggestions if asked but did not hover. They were able to add an extra bed to make our sleeping arrangements more comfortable. They even offered suggestions on the best way to make arrangements for snowmobiling. We rented the snowmobiles from Togwotee. They were very accommodating to our needs-I highly recommend them as well. Make sure you dine at the Lava Mountain Lodge and Brooks Lake Lodge. We enjoyed the food and the fireplaces there after riding the trails.
The views in the area are amazing. There are hundreds of miles of groomed snowmobile trails which you can ride either with or without a guide. I highly recommend the accommodations and the area to anyone, young and old who wants to see some of the most spectacular scenery in the country.
What did you most enjoy about your stay?
spacious kitchen, large kind size bed, great mountain view
Would you come back again or recommend this home to a friend?
I have already recommended this cabin to two co-workers
Was the property a good fit for the group you were traveling with?
It was what we were looking for, yes.
What nearby activities, attractions, or restaurants did you enjoy?
We just came for snowmobiling on Togwotee
What did the owner or property manager do to provide great customer service?
Kathrin and Martin were both very hospitable and helpful to us. They made us feel at home.
We brought our trailer and 3 of our daughters. With the additional bed put up it worked great for us. There was firewood offered for sale and the kitchen is substantial. We came through Riverton and bought our groceries there because we remember from previous years that the show in Dubois was decent but not comparable to the bigger stores in Riverton. The snowmobile trail starts just up the road and gas is available close-by as well. My husband took pictures of a moose with her young.
Very nice to find a cabin that is the way it is advertised. Probably the nicest cabin my buddy and I have rented in the area. The rental had everything we needed and the owner made sure that there was nothing we were missing. Only on the last day did I get to enjoy the splendid mountain sunrise from the kitchen window, as we were always up and gone into the woods before the sun came up. Thank you again and we will be back.
When we arrived at Moose Calf, we found 5 star accommodations. Very Clean, Great layout, Great modern amenities including complete kitchen, Washing Machine, Washer and Dryer - EVERYTHING we needed for our stay! The bedrooms were great, comfortable and warm. The owners were the best - very helpful, friendly and courteous. The mountain views and activities on the property are awesome - ATV's Hiking, Fly Fishing, Wild Game watching - without leaving the property!!!! Check-Out the TeePee on the property - available for rent. Several great places to eat in Dubois (Breakfast Lunch and Dinner)! Dubois is on the Elk Migration path which is awesome to see!
This Place is on our list for a "Do Over." Big Diamond Ranch is great place with great hosts in a great city! :-)
The mountain-hemmed town of Dubois and the Upper Wind River Valley that surrounds it are only about an hour’s drive from Jackson Hole, but they’re a world away. The area is one of the most spectacularly scenic — and still relatively undiscovered — vacation destinations in the Northern Rockies.
The town and its outlying hay meadows and cattle ranches are bordered by several million acres of National Forest, more than half of which are protected as wilderness areas.
Spectacular Wild Country
To the east of town are the dramatic redrock canyons and colorful rock formations of the Dubois Badlands. To the southwest loom the rugged peaks and glacial lakes of the Wind River Range. To the North rise the pine-clad slopes and alpine meadows of the Absaroka Range. And rolling away to the southeast are the sagebrush hills and high plains of the vast Wind River Indian Reservation, home to the Northern Arapahoe and Eastern Shoshone tribes.
The valley abounds with wildlife. Nearby Whiskey Mountain supports the largest herd of Rocky Mountain bighorn sheep in North America. Other big-game animals and rare species thrive in the wild country that surrounds Dubois: moose, elk, antelope, deer, mountain lion, bald and golden eagle, grizzly and black bear. Area streams and lakes teem with an impressive array of game fish, including rainbow, lake, brook, cutthroat, golden and brown trout, grayling and mountain whitefish.
Lots To Do in Town
Although outdoor adventures are the area’s specialty, there’s lots to do in town as well.
The National Bighorn Sheep Interpretive Center, opened a few years back, has already become a major visitor attraction. The center houses a number of impressive exhibits on bighorn sheep biology and successful herd management methods used at Whiskey Mountain. Next door, the Dubois Museum’s exhibits link the valley’s ethnic, social, cultural, and work history with its archaeology, geology, and natural history.
Dubois shops sell everything from cowboy boots and fly-fishing gear to handsome coffee-table books and upscale gifts. A tour of town shops reveals fine silver jewelry, crafts by Native American tribes, high-quality Western-theme gifts, and crafts by local artists.
Off the Beaten Path
Dubois is a busy place in the summer, but the solitude and natural splendor of the badlands and mountains are only minutes away. Miles of scenic unpaved roads take visitors in vehicles or on mountain bikes deep into the backcountry, and dozens of trailheads lead to a network of well-maintained hiking and horse trails.
Southwest of Dubois is Union Pass, said to be the only place in the country where three river sources flow in different directions: streams born on the pass eventually join the Columbia, Mississippi, and Colorado rivers. Union Pass is accessible to four-wheel-drive vehicles during the summer months and early fall.
Southeast of town is Whiskey Mountain with its resident bighorn sheep herd and a major trailhead that serves as the jumping-off point for hikes and horsepack trips into the Fitzpatrick Wilderness. The bumpy dirt road that leads to the trailhead makes for slow going, but sharp-eyed travelers can spot ancient petroglyphs carved into rock faces along the way.
For those who really want to get away from it all, a number of local outfitters offer guided fishing and pack horse trips into nearby wilderness areas.
Summer Activities & Events
Dubois bustles with activities and events nearly every night of the week in the summer. Lectures and demonstrations by the Dubois Museum, the National Forest Service, and the Bighorn Sheep Center will be given at the fire circle in the Dubois Town Park. Topics include: history, geology, camp cooking, fishing, wildlife, breaking wild horses, berry picking, and other general interest subjects. Gather beforehand at the Sheep Center and take the short walk to the park.
