My cabin is two story, with 928 sq ft of living space. On the ground floor is a bedroom with bunk beds, a small kitchen including a stove, refrig, all utensils & microwave, a bath with shower, the wood stove, and a living/dining area. The loft looks into the treetops and includes a TV area, sofa, futon, and bedroom. The interior is knotty pine, big windows, forest green plush carpet, moose towel racks, and a wood stove that opens for a screened fire.
The 8X20 deck includes a gas grill and lounging chairs with an open view to brilliant night time stars. A campfire grate is feet away from the deck. The private drive can accomodate 2 vehicles. Parking for trailers is within 1/2 mile.
The 1.25 acres allows for plenty of space between residents and the trees provide privacy.
Sitting on the national forestry boundary, my place is one step away from any mountain/wildlife activity.
Driveway access is now year round-neighbor maintains my road and drive during the winter snows.

My childhood summers were spent in the Rocky Mountains where I grew to love nature, wildlife, outdoor activities and camping. These activities bonded my family and I adopted the mountain lifestyle. As a professional, a get-away spot to reflect and renew was an ideal way to balance work and play. I bought, moved, and renovated a cabin from the YMCA of the Rockies, placed it on 1.25 acres of mountain forest, and now have a quaint, secluded spot in which to breathe and live life fully. Activities are abundant and renew my body and spirit. I love watching the wildlife which live and sing all around me. A wood fire or campfire warms me in a chill, the porch deck and pines cool me during a summer's eve. Larger communities of Laramie and Cheyenne are within a 2-3 hour drive so my place is an easy drive on a Friday afternoon. I have always admired the cowboy rugged way of life and our nearby communities feature rodeos, poetry readings, melodramas, parades, chariot racing, horseman competitions, ranger walks and talks. I've helped with cattle drives, sung in community concerts, floated the river, fished the streams, hunted elk, skiied the mountain trails, camped among the wildlife, reveled in the beauty around me, and now, want to share some of my wonder. It all keeps me young in body and spirit. I have been truly blessed and believe those that visit will leave with the same renewal.

One cannot surpass the beauty of the Snowy Range Mountains, part of the Rocky Mountain chain. Wyoming offers the pristine beauty from the advantage of more nature and wildlife, fewer people. My property sits within a small community, less than 200 people, yet is close to civilization. There are no crowds nor traffic jams. Stress melts away.
The best advantage of my surrounding area, the Snowy Range Mountains, is access to wildlife and nature with all the serenity that comes with a connection to the wilderness. It is an active way of life yet calms and connects to all within and around us. From the comfort of my home, I've watched fox scamper across the snow, moose munch on my willows, hummingbirds squabble for the feeder, deer quietly pick their way through the brush, squirrels steal the birdfeed, a small black bear run away up the hillside, and elk bellow their bugle. It is all free entertainment at my doorstep.
Great cabin and owner. Very easy snowmobile access right in the snowy range. Highly recommended.
Nice cabin, owner went out of her way to accommodate our travel schedule. Rode our snowmobiles right up to cabin door. Helped make our trip very enjoyable.
We stayed in this cabin (large for a cabin) for 5 nights. The owner was really helpful with day trip ideas and knew all the great local spots to check out. This is a very nice place to stay. This cabin has plenty of furniture for a bunch of people. An extremely comfortable bed with heated mattress pad and you could look out the window while laying in bed and watch the stars. The wood stove was easy to light and provided excellent heat. All the appliances and utensils needed to cook anything. We had several deer right off the deck every morning. What a peaceful, quiet, comfortable place to stay. We'll be back!!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the cabin. Wish we could have stayed longer. Very comfortable and was beautiful to be able to lie in bed, look out the window and see all the stars! The fire ring was very enjoyable and we even roasted marshmallows. Saw deer when we were out by the fire, too. We would definitely recommend this to others!
Timed the aspen color perfect. Color was beautiful. Cabin was perfect. Owner was excellent to spend time and tell us drives to see the fall colors why we were there. Cabin was perfect for 3 adults. Loft allowed for more space which we did not need. Tho was some car traffic on forest service road guess hunting season was rare. Enjoyed walking on forest road for color also up the hill for vista of the town of Ryan park and snowy range.
Perfect for adults. Not sure children. Spiral staircase to loft was tricky.
Wood stove. we used it plenty of warmth Loft was too warm. But we were trying to heat for individual who was downstairs and chilly.
Kitchen was adequate.
Appreciated how owner had firewood in house ready for a fire EVEN has wood laid outside for a campfire
I have traveled to the Snowies many times over the last few decades and have enjoyed every trip, and hope for a return visit soon. This last visit was the first time we've rented a cabin there and we couldn't have asked for a more enjoyable stay. This unusual cabin backs up to the National Forest yet is easy to get to from Saratoga, and excellent hiking. The owner is very accommodating and obviously loves this place and is kind enough to share it with others. Highly recommend this cabin if you are looking for a unique mountain experience.
