About Martin and Kathrin Stucki

Run by a Swiss-American Family.

Martin and Kathrin Stucki purchased this cabin in 2012

Why Martin and Kathrin Stucki chose Wyoming

For the love of the mountains, the trout, the deer and the peace. This property embraces nature. It is set into the beating heart of the Yellowstone Ecosystem. Its pristine waters are filled with native trout. The millions of acres of forest that back up to the house bring moose, elk and deer visitors. Bald and Golden Eagle are circling over hundreds of miles of snow mobile and cross country tracks.

A trip to Dubois town is 12 minutes. Jackson Hole with its fine dining, world class ski resorts and influential art galleries are just an hour and a half drive from the chalet.

What makes this cabin unique

Full Mountain view from the kitchen and bedroom.

Fishing and hunting without getting into the car.

Cozy wood-burning oven

floor heating

garage for a car or snow toys

Horse barn or RV-Hook-up upon request.

Great Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Four us stayed in the Moose Calf cabin with our 2 dogs. The location was perfect, near trails, streams and lakes. We fished just about every day and on off days explored Dubois or Yellowstone. The cabins are clean and modern with TV and WiFi. Not much cell service in that area so the WiFi came in handy keeping in touch with family. Martin is a gracious and attentive host. If you need something he'll be on it and take care of it for you. I've vacationed a lot of places and rarely return since there is so much to see in this world but, I plan to return to Diamond Ranch again.

You can't go wrong with the location or facilities. You won't find a better place to stay in the Dubois area.

Great place with spectacular views!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed at the Big Diamond Ranch for 6 days in late June and cannot say enough good things about our stay. Moose Calf cabin was perfect for us, very nice and comfortable and you don't even notice the other cabins on the property. Great views of the surrounding mountains and you are right on the Wind River. Its a perfect location, wilderness and NF all around, but only about 1 1/2 hours from Jackson Hole. We will definitely be back.

Combination of beauty, activity, and quietness

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I loved staying in the Moose Calf Cabin. It was comfortable, accommodating, and spacious. A highlight of our stay was sitting outside the cabin in the evening watching the sunset as we tried to pick out animal formations in the clouds. So relaxing and peaceful.

Martin, Kathrin, and their two kids, Andreas and Leoni, know the area like the back of their hands. We got hiking recommendations from Martin and Andreas and headed up to Lake Louise, a wonderful half-day hike. Martin also suggested restaurants and we ate a wonderful dinner at the Nostalgia Bistro in Dubois. And finally, we rented an off-road vehicle from them and spent part of a day exploring the trails near the cabin.

Our stay was a combination of beauty, activity, and quietness. Perfect for what we were looking for. I would highly recommend anyone staying there who enjoys this combination. Thanks so much.

Absolutely beautiful

  • 5 of 5

We drove 25 hours to arrive at Big Diamond Ranch, and it was absolutely worth it!!! The cabin was beautiful and the scenery is breath taking. We reccommend the 4-wheeler riding. Our entire family enjoyed it and the view that we were surrounded by. We watched mule deer and even found bear tracks. Take time out to watch for wildlife on trips to the Tetons and Yellowstone. Moose, elk, & deer are are a few of the animals we saw. The owners are super nice and more than willing to accommodate your needs for your visit at the ranch. Also very knowledgeable about the area. Martin saved us time and money with his tips of wisdom. His son ( a very nice and intelligent young man ) gave my son pointers on fly fishing and educated him on the several types of limestone, flint, lava, and several other rocks in the river by our cabin. We were able to bring our dogs on our vacation. Slept with our windows open and had a fire every night in pit outside. Made for a relaxing evening to the end the days. Truly an awesome vacation with perfect accommodations. Thank you Martin & Kathryn. Don't forget to pick your kids up a $1 kite and watch how much fun it is for them to be outside away from video games..

Fantastic Visit!!

  • 4 of 5

My family and I had a wonderful visit to Big Diamond Ranch! Martin and his entire family were very accommodating and worked tirelessly to make sure that everything was just right for us. We rented four wheelers for the whole family, and had so much fun we rented them again a second day. The property backs up to Shoshone National Forest, and the trails, views, and destinations we went to on the ATVs were incredible! We made a day trip in the car to Jackson Hole and the Grand Tetons, and went to Yellowstone on two different days. Although not really a big negative, the internet was servicable, but a little slow to get much work done. Also, the clarity of the TV wasn't perfect, but when you are in Dubois you probably shouldn't be doing any work inside when it's so beautiful outside! We had a wonderful time, and we would definitely go there again when we are back in the area!!

A Perfect Cabin for a Perfect WY Vacation

  • 5 of 5

The only word to accurately describe our stay at Big Diamond Ranch is perfect. The cabin was ideal for our family of four plus our two Labrador Retrievers. We started every morning by hiking their land behind the cabin and ended every evening with a fire outside. The views are magnificent! The ranch is very spacious and even though there are a few other cabins on the ranch, they are spaced so far apart that you feel like you're there by yourself. Having horses on the property was wonderful for our kids. They enjoyed going down by them every day to say hi. We went down to the river regularly to let the dogs and kids play around in the water. Martin and Kathrin are very gracious hosts and always made sure we had everything we needed to be comfortable. And the location of the ranch is also very ideal. It's very close to the Teton Range and Yellowstone but far enough away that you still remain away from the National Park crowd. And our best bear sighting was actually about 15-20 west of the cabin right along the highway. We sat there for about a 1/2 hour just watching him...or her... roam around. We've rented through VRBO about 10 times now and this could possibly be our best experience yet. I assure you that if you stay here you won't be disappointed!

The mountain-hemmed town of Dubois and the Upper Wind River Valley that surrounds it are only about an hour’s drive from Jackson Hole, but they’re a world away. The area is one of the most spectacularly scenic — and still relatively undiscovered — vacation destinations in the Northern Rockies.

The town and its outlying hay meadows and cattle ranches are bordered by several million acres of National Forest, more than half of which are protected as wilderness areas.

Spectacular Wild Country

To the east of town are the dramatic redrock canyons and colorful rock formations of the Dubois Badlands. To the southwest loom the rugged peaks and glacial lakes of the Wind River Range. To the North rise the pine-clad slopes and alpine meadows of the Absaroka Range. And rolling away to the southeast are the sagebrush hills and high plains of the vast Wind River Indian Reservation, home to the Northern Arapahoe and Eastern Shoshone tribes.

The valley abounds with wildlife. Nearby Whiskey Mountain supports the largest herd of Rocky Mountain bighorn sheep in North America. Other big-game animals and rare species thrive in the wild country that surrounds Dubois: moose, elk, antelope, deer, mountain lion, bald and golden eagle, grizzly and black bear. Area streams and lakes teem with an impressive array of game fish, including rainbow, lake, brook, cutthroat, golden and brown trout, grayling and mountain whitefish.

Lots To Do in Town

Although outdoor adventures are the area’s specialty, there’s lots to do in town as well.

The National Bighorn Sheep Interpretive Center, opened a few years back, has already become a major visitor attraction. The center houses a number of impressive exhibits on bighorn sheep biology and successful herd management methods used at Whiskey Mountain. Next door, the Dubois Museum’s exhibits link the valley’s ethnic, social, cultural, and work history with its archaeology, geology, and natural history.

Dubois shops sell everything from cowboy boots and fly-fishing gear to handsome coffee-table books and upscale gifts. A tour of town shops reveals fine silver jewelry, crafts by Native American tribes, high-quality Western-theme gifts, and crafts by local artists.

Off the Beaten Path

Dubois is a busy place in the summer, but the solitude and natural splendor of the badlands and mountains are only minutes away. Miles of scenic unpaved roads take visitors in vehicles or on mountain bikes deep into the backcountry, and dozens of trailheads lead to a network of well-maintained hiking and horse trails.

Southwest of Dubois is Union Pass, said to be the only place in the country where three river sources flow in different directions: streams born on the pass eventually join the Columbia, Mississippi, and Colorado rivers. Union Pass is accessible to four-wheel-drive vehicles during the summer months and early fall.

Southeast of town is Whiskey Mountain with its resident bighorn sheep herd and a major trailhead that serves as the jumping-off point for hikes and horsepack trips into the Fitzpatrick Wilderness. The bumpy dirt road that leads to the trailhead makes for slow going, but sharp-eyed travelers can spot ancient petroglyphs carved into rock faces along the way.

For those who really want to get away from it all, a number of local outfitters offer guided fishing and pack horse trips into nearby wilderness areas.

Summer Activities & Events

Downtown Dubois

Dubois bustles with activities and events nearly every night of the week in the summer. Lectures and demonstrations by the Dubois Museum, the National Forest Service, and the Bighorn Sheep Center will be given at the fire circle in the Dubois Town Park. Topics include: history, geology, camp cooking, fishing, wildlife, breaking wild horses, berry picking, and other general interest subjects. Gather beforehand at the Sheep Center and take the short walk to the park.
