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. 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.

A Peaceful Retreat

  • 5 of 5

My friend and I thoroughly enjoyed 3 days of solace at your spacious house with its fully-equipped clean kitchen, country décor, and spacious grounds. We played Christmas music, watched DVDs, walked around the area, and enjoyed the flickering flames of your well-stocked fire pit. We would return if the occasion presented itself. Thank you for sharing your house with us. Jay and Mary

Great location, great place

  • 4 of 5

This place is great and it would be hard to find a better location to base a visit to the Thermopolis area. Being right on the river was fantastic. The home is relatively new and in great shape. Shelton was easy to deal with and worked with us to coordinate our arrival time by staying in touch as to when we could move in on our first day. Very helpful. As the Camp Cook, my only critiscism is that the selection of pots and pans was pretty limited. We had to make oatmeal and boil water for coffee in a huge soup pot. But that's not much of a downside for an otherwise fantastic place, and easily fixed.

As advertised

  • 5 of 5

It is as advertised. The newly constructed cabin overlooked the banks of the river. Clean and tidy with an open floor plan that is comfortable and roomy. It is truly a sportsman's paradise with amenities for the family. The host was easy to contact and very informative. Looking forward to visit again soon.
