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 Bondurant

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 passed away at 99 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!

Beautiful but be aware

  • 4 of 5

The cabin is beautiful and remote. It is very clean and comfortable. There are a few things you should be aware of before you go. The cabin has no electricity or running water. The private shower is outside and if it gets too cold you will need to use the bathroom in the home. The lodge is actually their private home and you will use their master bathroom. So you will need to schedule your showers when they are available. Melissa and Dave are wonderful and very accommodating so it is not a problem as long as you know going in. You should definitely plan on eating at their wonderful restaurant, The Branding Iron. Dave is a fantastic chef. Very quiet and peaceful setting. The wood stove will certainly keep you warm in the coldest weather and the bed is so comfy. Great place to stay as long as you know what to expect!

Beautiful cabin, but not what we expected.

  • 3 of 5

The cabin and its surroundings are stupendously beautiful, however we were not expecting to have no plumbing or running water, and no electricity in the cabin. I also was not aware that the cabin is located approximately fifty feet from the owner's house. Melissa was very accommodating and polite, but if you need to charge your phone or use any electric appliance, the only place to do that is on her front porch.

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.

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.
