About The Owner

I am a photographer and horse trainer. I travel a lot, that is how I found the unique area of Clark & Buck Taylor's cabin. I always travel with my dog's,a German Shepherd and a lively Jack Russell, and a new addition of a Great Dane! They LOVE to come out to the ranch and go hiking. My photography was fortunate enough to grace the cover of Cody & Beyond magazine & feature pictures of the area & the Cody Rodeo in the 2011-2013 & 2015 magazine. I spend my Summer's photographing some of the West's most memorable rodeo's but, the Cody Stampede s the most special of all!

The Owner purchased this cabin in 2004

Why The Owner chose Wyoming

I loved the fact that I could be close to the mountains and yet when family and friends visit we could be close to TWO tourist towns and Yellowstone Park. We never run out of things to do! The mountains are so close and beautiful, and there is a wonderful view in every direction being up so high. Also a big factor is that even though the ranch is private , it is paved up to where the property starts. I can hike right off from the cabin & the Shoshonee National Forest is in the backyard. BLM land backs up behind the cabin so there is plenty of open space. Hiking in the Clarks Fork Canyon is such an experience, hearing the rush of the river, spotting wildlife, glorious views. Picturing the calvary chasing down Cheif Joseph and his tribe many years ago. Best is getting up, sipping coffee and watching the sunrise over the Big Horn's 80 miles to the East, and the colors glowing on the mountains behind you.

What makes this cabin unique

Enjoy complete privacy & be born free as you will be the only guest at the ranch! Peacefulness, great fishing, hiking in the mountains with many access trails. Seeing the wildlife run free, gorgeous sunrises and sunsets, fresh air and awesome night skies with no city lights. I like the fact that historical figure Jeremiah Johnson used to frequent the area. There was a gunfight in the canyon & Cheif Joseph crossed through here when the calvary was in pursuit. There is a lot of history and you can feel it.

The cabin itself is so unique with hand tooled logs right from the Rocky Mountains! The decor is all 'old west', and you really feel a wonderful 'western experience'!

The ranch is pet friendly for pets and horses too. It feels good to think that Hall of Fame Cowboy, Buck Taylor, from 'Gunsmoke', used to own the cabin. You can listen to the coyote's and wolves howl while sitting at your bonfire at night, and really feel like you are in another era. There is plenty of cut firewood at the ranch for your use.

I also send my visitor's a travel planner packet. It has brochure's of activities in the Cody, Lovell, Red Lodge & Yellowstone area. I also include maps of the area, hiking trails, and fishing spot's.

Visitor's may plan well in advance their vacation time. This has gone over well & has proved to be very helpful to vacationer's.

Amazing!!!

  • 5 of 5

We took our sons and niece to see Yellowstone for my son's graduation trip. The trip was so much more than I could have ever imagined. The cabin is amazing. The feel of the cabin is like being in the old west with all the perks of modern day. My only regret is we packed our days so full that we didn't get to spend as much time at the cabin as I would have liked. We did however enjoy a great night of grilling, roasting marshmallows and stargazing. I would also like to thank Mrs. Debbie for being so great. We had never used VRBO and she made the experience absolutely painless. She is so nice and thoughtful. We received such great information from her. I wish she had homes everywhere I go. Thank you Mrs. Debbie for sharing your amazing house with us and for helping make our dream vacation an amazing experience!! The house was absolutely gorgeous!!! I hope one day to make it back that direction, and if I do , I will definitely be looking for your home again!

It is more like 40 miles between cody and the cabin.we will not be staying there again as we were accused of stealing binoculars yet none of us even seen any nor even a reason to need any.. sad.

Owner's Response: The ranch is 27 miles just North of Cody, not 40. The ranch is historical and part of that charm means there is a log beam that runs through the shower area, if you are over 6' 2", you have to stay to one side of it. No one accused these guests of stealing. Only the binoculars were gone. I find it hard that the guests could keep track because of the large amount of people they had at the ranch. My service had alerted me that a semi-truck came to the cabin and a dozen or so motorcycles were unloaded. I don't authorize events or parties and this definitely was not discussed. The gravel drive way had to be fixed as there were ruts everywhere. I felt bad for my service as they had to clean up someone else's loose garbage everywhere....sad.

Summer Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Staying at the ranch was the best experience our family ever had on a vacation. Everything was provided to make our stay comfortable and at ease. It truly felt like home. We look foward to every morning sunrise and every evening sunset. The location was perfect. Thank you Debbie for opening your home and giving our family the best vacation experience ever. (July 2017)

Wonderful getaway

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed everything about our stay. My wife did not want to leave.

The cabin is well built, well stocked, well decorated and comfortable.

The views from the wrap around porch are vacations by themselves. Sunrises with a cup coffee and sunsets with a glass of wine were perfect bookends for every day of our trip.

Cody, Red Lodge, and Yellowstone were easy and pleasant day trips, but even in Yellowstone, we found ourselves wanting to get back and just enjoy the ranch.

We are already planning our return.

Charming mountain getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed the amenities of this cabin, both indoor and out. The cabin was surprisingly larger than the photos portrayed. The wrap around porch was ideal for taking in the majestic mountain views. The location to National Forest land is ideal for the outdoor enthusiasts. Highly recommended!

Location

Perfect for star gazers with the naked eye or telescope. Back yard view of the Beartooth Mountains. Superb trailheads into the mountains. Private access to fish on Line Creek. Wonderful wild life viewing from your porch. Excellent fishing on the last wilderness river in Wyoming-The Clark's Fork Of The Yellowstone River!
