Overview

About the property

Enjoy your stay in Thermopolis at this newer construction, 3 bedroom 2 bath home. The Big Horn river is one of the best fisheries in the state, and you have access to it right outside your doors. On any given morning it is the norm to see pheasants or deer walking by, along with many different species of waterfowl enjoying the waters of the river. Easy access to the town of Thermopolis, which offers a world class dinosaur museum, and two commercial swimming pools where you can enjoy the water from the natural mineral hot springs. Boysen reservoir is 30min away, while the scenic town of Cody, and Yellowstone Park are within a 2 hour drive. The Riverview Guesthouse is great if you are in town to fish, hunt, explore the local area, or for a base while making day trips. Presently, we do not have a TV or wifi, and our intent with this guesthouse is to help people engage more with each other and their surroundings, while getting away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. The location is ideal to enjoy a variety of outdoor activities, and board games are provided if weather keeps you indoors. The trout fishing along this stretch of the river is very good with both public and private access to the river. This location allows nearly 6,000 feet of public fishing access along the river bank downstream from the house, and almost 2,000 feet of private river access upstream.

About Sherman Skelton

Growing up my family ranched in the area, and we farmed on the hay fields around the vacation property. I am very familiar with the area and am more than happy to give any input on additional things to do or see during your stay in Thermopolis.

Why Sherman Skelton chose Wyoming

My great grandparents farm house was right across the road from the vacation property. I am the fourth generation to own this property, and had always dreamt of building something near the river. It was a dream come true when I broke ground on "the cabin" in the spring of 2013. The project was made even more rewarding by the fact that I was able to build the house with the help of my father, and under the watchful eyes of my 2 year old son. I truly wanted this to be a multi generational project. I worked 4 days a week in Casper, and then drove to Thermopolis and worked on the house every Fri-Sun for the next two years. There are still some projects to to on the property, but we have really enjoyed sharing our place with people from around the country.

Get away on the river

  • 4 of 5

This home is very well suited for a family or group to spend time away from the daily barrage of negative media in our world today. There is no TV or WIFI and honestly hope they don't ever add those as the river is less than 100 ft away from the back patio. The fire pit and horseshoe pit make up for the lack of tech connections and gives a great opportunity for everyone to tell their fishing stories from the day. Late spring may be a little buggy but outside of that this home is all you could ask for when trying to get away for a weekend.

Wonderful home with everything you need......right on the river

  • 5 of 5

What a great place to stay for a few days with some friends. Well stocked with everything you would need for cooking and entertaining. Amazing view of the river flowing by off the back porch and the sounds of pheasants in the nearby fields was great to wake up to. We come to Thermopolis every year and we have found our new favorite place to hang our fishing gear. Can't wait to come back.
