Property type cabin
Minimum Stay 3 nights


About the property

3 Bedrooms, 1 Bathrooms, Sleeps 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 panoramic 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 3 double beds and one twin bunk 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.

Further Details: The living room 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 throughout 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 snow mobilers, four wheelers, 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.

Why The Owner Chose Buffalo: I grew up here and just want to share the beauty of our mountains with others. We do a lot of snowmobiling and four wheeling love to take our grandchildren hiking we just love being there. For renting outdoor sports ultimate adventures in Buffalo.

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.

The cabin was beautiful, not to mention the gorgeous scenery around! We felt like were at our home away from home. If you are looking for a retreat to disconnect and recharge, this is it!

It was a very beautiful scenic place. It is so nice to be tucked away in the blue ridge mountains with amazing views and wildlife. The cabin was rustic but modern enough that I didn't feel like we roughing it out in the wilderness. The cabin had all the necessities of home. Great distance for sightseeing the Big Horn Mountains. I would highly recommend this place for a vacation getaway. Loved it!!!
