Great place. Great People. Great ATV riding and fishing

  • 5 of 5

We 2 couples stayed in the grizzly cub cabin. It was clean, modern, and beautiful. The kitchen was well appointed. The bedrooms, while small, were comfortable. The beds also comfortable. The bathroom was nice and the walk-in shower was excellent. Martin, the owner, was very helpful and friendly. The owners' children were wonderful and even guided us on an ATV ride! We trailered t our own RZR side by side from MN and ran around in the trails. It was the best riding we ever had! Between the gravel roads and the trails, it was beautiful riding. We put on 300 miles during the week. You can get right to the trails on the connector trail made by the owners right from the cabins. The owners have nice new ATVs and side by sides for rent also. If you have a license plate, a horn, and a left side rear view mirror on your atv, you can ride on the blacktop also.

We bought fishing licenses (14.00 per day) at the Dubois grocery store for fishing the trout in the wind river below the cabin. We caught dinner in the form of rainbow trout!! Truly a bonus for the trip!! We took a day trip to Yellowstone. We would go back to the Big Diamond Ranch any time.

We wil be back

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week here with our Teen boys and pre teen daughter. The place is fantastic. We stayed in the Main Ranch House and it had everything we needed. We had wifi and Direct TV but rarely turned on the TV (Olympics only). We caught great trout on the property and wildlife was all around us, including a doe that slept in our front yard every night. There is plenty to do and Jackson is only about an hour away with the Grand Teton National Park even closer. If you are coming to the area...STAY HERE. We will again, for sure.

Phenomenal Cabin and Trip!

  • 5 of 5

I cannot say enough wonderful things about the cabin, experience, service, and overall trip! Martin and his entire family really know how to make a family feel special! Our family vacation was the best we've ever had. We lacked for nothing. We had all accommodations at the cabin, short drive to Tetons and Yellowstone. Perfect location, as we did not want to be amongst a tourist trap. The town itself is quaint, and adorable. We will be lifetime repeat customers!! Cannot wait until the next time we can say we are headed back!

Embodiment of peacefulness

  • 5 of 5

When I first saw the pictures of the ranch I immediately rushed to book the cabin, although had even to change the initial plan for the trip to match free dates. After reading the reviews my decision only solidified. We were ready for amazing experience in amazing place. But the reality turned even better! The place is so special, so peaceful and authentic. Mountains, forests, lakes and rivers make a perfect environment for a real getaway. The cabin was fantastic too: very clean and cosy. Every small detail revealed authentic care of hosts. The view from the cabin and the smell of wood inside created a very special atmosphere for us. The hosts were incredibly helpful and friendly. Our stay in the Grizzly Cabin was really fantastic and we dream of returning there again one day, although the trip from Ukraine is quite a challenge. But the place is worth the efforts. Without an exaggeration, one of the best vacation we've had so far. We'll cherish great memories and make everything possible to return there again some day.

Happy campers

  • 5 of 5

I cannot say enough good things about this experience. This cabin was all they said it would be and more. My husband and I took a vacation for the first time without our kids and were looking for a place to relax and just enjoy some time together. This definitely did that. I was nervous going so far (South Texas is our home) to a place we knew nothing about but Martin and his family went above and beyond to make our stay excellent. We were able to rent 4 wheeler's and hit a trail right behind the cabin. Martin and his children delivered the 4 wheeler's to our door and picked them up when we were through. He even went out of his way to trade them out for a side by side when he discovered that we wanted to ride together so I could take pictures. The cabin was spotless and comfortable. The views were spectacular. The only possible down side is the lack of internet. There is wi fi so you can email but we were unable to send text or make calls from the cabin. However, Martin was available vial email and responded very quickly to every question and/or concern we had. I would recommend this to anyone traveling that direction. Our cabin was small but that was our choice. There were larger cabins available.

Martin and Kathrin, we hope to come back next year and bring our kids, so we will need a larger cabin. You guys are exceptional host. Your children are exceptional, which is refreshing in a world where so many kids have lost their way. God bless you all and we look forward to seeing you again next year!!! (maybe this time we'll find that lake. LOL)

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 back country, and dozens of trail heads 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 trail head that serves as the jumping-off point for hikes and horse pack trips into the Fitzpatrick Wilderness. The bumpy dirt road that leads to the trail head 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.
