Property type cabin
Minimum Stay 3 nights


About the property

Cabin, 3 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-6)

We built this beautiful 1500 sq. ft. cabin for our own personal getaway. We like high places so the cabin is on the side of a mountain at 8000 ft. elevation with a panaramic view of the Big Horn Mts, the highest being Cloud Peak at 12,223 ft. The sun rises behind the cabin which provides an amazing light show on the peaks in front of the cabin and sets over the Hazelton Peaks at the left front of the cabin's 16x20 deck for a truly one of a kind sunset. The show is not over yet because at this elevation with no other lights around the stars are so crystal clear and brilliant. The view from the porch or the big picture window in the living room is a never ending enjoyment day or night.

The Cabin has a king size bed in the master bedroom,double bed in other private bedroom and 2 double beds in the loft. The Kitchen is fully equipped to do any kind of cooking that suits you and there is a large oak table with 8 chairs .The livingroom is equipped with a beautiful red Vermont Casting wood stove, a leather couch with 2 recliners, leather love seat w/2 recliners, and a large leather recliner. There is also a 32' LCD flat screen TV with dvd player so you can watch your favorite movies. The walls and ceilings are all Aspen finished and there are hard wood floors throught out.

The cabin is perfect place for early risers to sit on the deck, enjoy your morning cup of coffee and watch nature unfold as the sun rises. You never know what you might see before you.

This is an ideal location for snowmobilers, fourwheelers, hikers, and other outdoor enthusiasts as it borders the National Forest on the front and BLM on the back. Your fun is only limited by you.

Beautiful view and great cabin

  • 5 of 5

Family time in a beautiful setting with the peace of the mountains. We had a great time and enjoyed s'mores by the fire, games with children and grandchildren and wonderful local wildlife.

Slice of heaven!

  • 5 of 5

This cabin is fabulous. The photo of the view definitely does not do it justice. It is sweeping, panoramic views of the Bighorns. We couldn't look away and got some spectacular pictures. The details inside are beautiful (quilts, blankets, decor) and the kitchen and bathroom are well stocked. There is even a basket of sample

soaps and shampoos for your convenience. There are neighboring homes nearby but they are hidden by trees. Very few cars driving by, we saw 3 in three days! Buffalo is a fun little town with a grocery and several restaurants about 40 minutes from cabin. We met Jane at the IGA in Buffalo where she gave us key code and directions to the cabin. We stocked up at the grocery. The drive to the cabin is scenic and easy. We roasted marshmellows each night in the fire pit in front of the cabin while watching the sun set.

Things to be aware of. Definitely no cell service and no wifi. (Slight AT&T signal up the hill). Also, the electric hot water tank is small so spread those hot showers out. The loft bedroom has two full beds only (the description in this app is a bit confusing).

We highly recomment the scenic drive to the small town of Tensleep, and the ATV tour with Ultimate Outdoors in Buffalo. If you have teenagers they will LOVE this.

Absolutely gorgeous

  • 5 of 5

Tucked away and quiet. Very clean cabin stocked with more than you'll ever need or use. Wildlife and scenery is some of the best in Wyoming. Great place to relax and re-charge. Owners were helpful, friendly and fun. My family will definitely be back.

Chill out

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here as the final stop on our three week trip which included Estes park, Grand Tetons and Yellowstone. We needed to chill out after all that travelling and that was exactly what we did. Cabin is set on the hillside high up with lovely views of the mountains. Very well appointed, with everything you could wish for.

We had not realised how far from Buffalo the cabin is located - around 30 miles, so make sure you stock up. No cell phone or internet available, which was fine for us, but may help if included in the property description.
