Moose Alley Lodging is located in beautiful, historic Cody, Wyoming. The majestic Absaroka Mountain Range is Cody’s backdrop with the Shoshone River meandering alongside. The east entrance to Yellowstone National Park is a scenic 53 mile drive from downtown Cody.
The 'Bear Tracks Bungalow' is a three bedroom, two bathroom, vintage 1936 home.
This guest house has been lovingly restored and carefully renovated in 2013. Its style and furnishings make it comfortable and appealing for today’s modern families, but original architecture gives it a pleasant, vintage flair. It is cozy, yet spacious enough for a large family with school aged children. It is not really suitable for toddlers.
The kitchen has been updated with all new appliances in 2013 to provide all the conveniences that a family needs. The home’s two full baths have all new fixtures and ceramic tile. The new lighting throughout the home complements the vintage era. Large, original double hung windows make it bright and airy. The living room is spacious with comfortable, leather seating for six and a 40' flat screen, HD TV with Dish satellite and a DVD player for watching your favorite movies.
One bedroom has a queen bed, dresser and walk-in closet. It is very private and secluded from the rest of the house situated at the end of a hallway and next to the full bath. The third bedroom, directly off the living room, has a full sized antique brass bed, dresser and a large closet. Both bedrooms have alarm clocks equipped with a USB port for your mobile phone and other devices.
The master bedroom offers a little luxury as well as privacy. It is located away from the other bedrooms on the opposite side of the house and also has a private entrance. It has a full, adjoining bathroom with washer and dryer. The amenities include a king bed, 32” HD flat screen TV with Dish satellite programming, a small beverage fridge, microwave, coffeemaker and an iPod/iPhone/CD stereo/clock radio for your listening pleasure as well as an alarm clock with USB port next to the bed.
The bungalow has a large front porch, landscaped lawn, privacy fencing in the backyard, a large patio, outdoor furniture, a picnic table and a fire pit for marshmallow roasting in the evening. There is also a charcoal bar-b-cue grill for grilling up your freshly caught trout or local beef steaks while relaxing after a long day of sight-seeing.
FYI... you should expect a few deer to meander in for a visit around daybreak or sundown and a bear or two has been known to scamper through this area of town at times :)

It is now 2017 and a lot has happened in the 16 years that we have been in the vacation rental business. We are 16 years older and hopefully "wiser". Two sons-in-law, a daughter-in-law and 9 grandchildren have been added to our family along with much joy to our lives.
We have added and renovated 3 more properties since the spring of 2012 and we are always thinking of ways we can upgrade and improve a vintage, 1936 three- bedroom bungalow, an early 1940’s two-bedroom cottage and a darling, early 1900’s one-bedroom.
It has truly been a labor of love, because it’s exhausting work and at times we were asking ourselves “what have we gotten ourselves into?” We have weathered the stress of the initial major renovation and now we can stand back and admire the accomplishment. We even received the ‘Pride Award’ from the City of Cody for our beautification of these properties.
We have really enjoyed this endeavor of transforming these three vintage houses to make them beautiful and comfortable “homes” for our guests and the best part is the hundreds of wonderful people we have met from all over the world. It just gets better and better and we look forward to many more years. We love sharing information about the area to our guests- helping to make their trip to Cody, Wyoming, Yellowstone and surrounding areas, an enjoyable and exciting experience. A trip they will cherish and have fond memories of, for many years to come.
Kim Brice purchased this bungalow in 2012
This property had been vacant for many years and everyday we would drive by and hope that someday soon, the darling little bungalow on the corner would have an owner that would love it and bring it back to life. In 2012, we were given that very opportunity by a chance meeting and we were thrilled to be the proud owners of this darling bungalow and taking on the challenge of restoring it to its former charm.
Cody, Wyoming, a small town that extends big hospitality and has deep roots into the era of the wild, untamed American West that is still evident today. Situated at the base of the Absaroka Mountain Range and alongside the Shoshone River is Cody, namesake and legacy of it’s founder; Colonel William F. Cody, more commonly known as Buffalo Bill, the most famous person in the world at the turn of the 20th century. His western charm, exuberance and adventurous spirit still thrive today in the town known as Cody.
Minutes outside Cody there are miles and miles of scenic grandeur as far as you can see. Wild mustangs and antelope still roam free across the prairie. Moose, bear, bison, wolves, mountain lions, Big Horn sheep, mountain goats, just to name a few, are visible in the forests, marsh and on the majestic mountain tops. Native Trout and other fish species are abundant in the pristine waters of rivers, lakes and streams that are so much a part of this vast, incredibly beautiful landscape that is Wyoming.
Fifty-three miles to the west of Cody is the world’s first national park, Yellowstone. Established in 1872, no place on earth compares to the splendor and mystery of this natural bounty with parts still waiting to be discovered. The awe and wonder of Yellowstone attracted early explorers and now modern day explorers, scientists, nature seekers, as well as inspiring writers, artists and photographers from all over the globe.
Every direction you choose to travel from Cody is pure delight. There is discovery and a feast for the eyes around every turn and down every stretch of road. When you decide to visit and experience the traditions of the old west and see with your own eyes what drew settlers here from long distances, you will not leave here the same.
The memories of this unforgettable place will stay with you forever and you will yearn to return someday...
Til we meet again,
Dan and Kim Brice
Kim met us at the house and reviewed info on the house and town, and answered a few questions of ours about the town. The house is extremely clean and served our needs well. The back yard is very nice and well kept. It is very close to everything in Cody and not far from Heart Mountain. The full size bed is rather high, so that would be a concern for a young child. Other than that, it is an excellent place to stay.
We loved the charm of this house. It was just the right size for our family. So close to town, too. I thought road noise would be an issue but it wasn't. We would definitely stay here again!
Great place to stay. Comfortable, clean, and close to places we wanted to visit.
Visited with my husband, two tween children and senior father. It was very nice to be able to spread out in a house versus the confines of a hotel room. Everyone slept great. House and surrounding yards were very clean and well maintained. Kim was friendly and helpful. Traffic was noisy at times but never really disturbed us. I would expect the same level of noise at any of the hotels on the main drag.
Will definitely stay here in the future.
Enjoyed our 3 night stay while visiting Cody and Yellowstone. We used grill and fire pit each night as well as patio for supper meal. Our grandkids enjoyed the playground at the school across the street - used it for water ballon fight. Kim and her husband were very helpful during stay offering tips on various things to do while in area. Enjoyed seeing the pics of renovation done on home.
The house was very nicely done and quite charming. Worked great for us!! It is located on a busy road, but that didn't affect us at all. Its close to downtown, across from a park, and very easy to find. The kids were disappointed that we couldn't use the fire pit...but that was due to the Wyoming winds...so we will when we stay there next time! ha!! The owner stopped in and was VERY nice and completely accomodating....we will try to stay here again!
