About Melissa

Dave and Melissa Shipek are both retired from their careers as a firefighter and teacher. Born and raised in California they decided to live in the wilderness and share their experiences with all who wished to have an extreme contrast from urban life. They live on the same 30 acres and offer a wide variety of activities plus gourmet meals.

Melissa purchased this cabin in 2012

Why Melissa chose Wyoming

This property is one of a kind with the combination of solitude, nature, a personal chef and access to Jackson Hole to enjoy the towns' many diverse offerings. It was a dream come true for Dave and Melissa and we hope it is for you too.

What makes this cabin unique

Reflection Cabin is dedicated to Melissa's grandfather who lived during the same time as Geronimo and was a pioneer in every sense of the word. It is also dedicated to her father who is 95 years old. It carries the antique feel of a wood burning stove and ice box and is decorated in western and Native American style.

A chance to step back in time and savor nature

  • 5 of 5

There are few people better than Melisa and Dave at turning their vision into a first-rate property--Reflection Cabin. Expertly crafted and decorated, you just can't beat the experience of being off the grid, but in luxury. The king size bed was wonderful....loved sitting in front of the picture window watching wildlife in the woods and birds on the feeder.....the grill on the porch enabled us to cook some fantastic meals....and your hospitality can't be matched. Loved our stay!

Ideal quiet mountain setting.

Perfect place for getting away from it all. The cabin is comfortable and beautifully handcrafted. Hosts Dave and Melissa are amazing! Plenty of great hikes nearby, and don't miss the delicious food at the Branding Iron Cafe.

Beautiful and Peaceful!

  • 5 of 5

The cabin and surrounding property is truly unique and beautiful. David and Melissa are gracious and helpful hosts. They have put a great deal of thought and effort into making the cabin functional, yet rustic and private, so that visitors feel comfortable and peaceful. Take a walk or hike and enjoy the surroundings and the beautiful wildflowers, enjoy the drive to Jackson for shopping, explore the wonderful fishing in the nearby rivers, or just enjoy the peace and tranquility of the cabin itself. Thank you, David and Melissa, for your gracious hospitality - we were able to relax and were blessed by the whole experience and look forward to another visit. Jeff, Sue and David Figgs, Greeley, Colorado

Best vacation ever!

  • 5 of 5

We're from Florida I and decided to take my daughter out west for a father/daughter trip. I booked three nights Reflection Cabin and then another four at another location. I wish I'd have booked the Reflection for the entire time! The natural beauty of this place is simply overwhelming, and the serenity of the cabin and the woods which surround it bring peace to the spirit... I woke up each morning and sipped my coffee on the porch amidst the cool, fresh breezes and with the sounds of birds chirping and squirrels rustling; not a sound except for the ones from the woodland inhabitants!

The cabin itself is a work of art. Hand-hewn beams culled from fallen timbers on the property recall a bygone era, and the décor within compliments and enhances that rustic, yet simply elegant feel. Every piece of furniture, every item adorning the walls--from the copper cooking pots to the 19th century wood stove to the artwork and antique curios--seems perfectly fitted to the setting. Nestled amongst the animals' homes in the trees outside, Reflection Cabin is the 'human nest' for all lucky enough to rest in it.

But even more special than this place are the owners themselves, who live but a short walk away. Dave and Melissa could not have been more welcoming. They made my daughter and I feel like family from the day we arrived...a real comfort for travelers coming from far away, as we were!

For the most part folks come to this gorgeous part of the country for one reason...to see the natural beauty and pristine wilderness which surround it. So why on earth do they congregate in Jackson Hole, elbow to elbow, when there is a place like this so closeby? To each their own but I will take Reflection Cabin over a crowded tourist trap any day. Spending the day in town and picking up a few items to take back home is fine, but beyond that give me the peace and quiet a place like Reflection Cabin brings... it is truly food for the soul.

Do yourself a favor--stay here. You'll take home a memory which will last a lifetime.

This property is amazing. Nestled amidst apen and fir trees at the end of a 6 mile dirt road you will experience a beautiful new cabin following an 1800's theme. You can be secluded away from everyone and everything or enjoy the attractions in Jackson Hole. This cabin is not like any other.
