Sheridan Cottage Rental Photos and Description
Cottage, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), cots, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-10
Story is, in keeping with its name, a storybook-like community, nearly hidden by Ponderosa Pines, Hawthorns and greenery in the summer and generally covered in a blanket of snow in winter.
You will enjoy staying in this 1,500 sq. foot repurposed old Piney Creek General Store and the Waldorf A' Story restrunt. It's been said that we were a 'place with an attitude'...and that attitude is a philosophy of enjoying the quality of life that Story has to offer. We couldn't let the mystique die, so our previous establishment was repurposed into thie lovely guest haus that is available for year round rental.
It has the ambience of places long ago with worn, rustic floors, rock walls, flagstone dining room floor and a bar built from an extra LARGE Ponderosa beetle killed tree, but with all the modern conveniences. You will also find coffee, homemade bread and wine
You will take great pleasure from the antiques and all the paraphernalia on the walls which will keep you entertained for hours...as well as an abundance of games.
View the sunrise from the most awesome huge rocking chairs produced right here in Story while you rock away the hours on the front porch. Sunsets behind the mountains are just as spectacular. There is a stream on the property with places for you to sit and enjoy your early morning coffee...or mimosas.
You will snuggle into your queen size bed in the bedroom that was formerly the wine room and is decorated as such. Our old beer room contains bunk beds covered with old quilts made by each of our grandmothers. There is also extra sleeping for two on the reclining couch. If needed, cots can be provided.
History of the area is waiting to be explored since we are so close to the Bozeman Trail. You will find Ft. Phil Kearney, The Wagon Box Fight Site and the Fetterman battlefield, all of which experienced a portion of the Indian Wars. Custer's Last Stand is just an hour away.
Wildlife is in abundance. Deer will walk up to you and eat right out of your hand. You might also experience a sighting of moose, elk, antelope, black bear, mink or mountain lions. A few bunny rabbits and robins nests too boot
Hiking and snowshoeing are two ways in which you can obtain exercise and observe the most beautiful wild flowers. Another option is to four wheel up beautiful Thornerider or Penrose Park. Winter time allows for snowmobiling
Hunters and fisherman will love the amount of room and the closeness to several lakes and perfect hunting grounds...as well as the perfect kitchen to cook up the fish that do jump on your line.
Ladies will love it for the various organizations they are involved in like quilting groups and book clubs with ample room to spread out and work on their projects.
Restaurants and a grocery store are within walking distance, as is the Post Office (right next door) so you can mail those postcards back home. The library is located conveniently right across the street for books and DVD's. Our DVD player is also set up to stream from Netflix...even kiddoes movies.
Several events occur year round, but the summer is full of excitement. You will find reenactments of fight scenes and one of the biggest Rodeo's around is held in Sheridan the second week of July every year. This week long celebration holds fun for everyone.
Drop by sometime. You're always invited to be our guest at what was once the Piney Creek General Store...and the Waldorf A'Story...that isn't any more...now it is better. We believe that Wyoming has some of the most beautiful scenery in the US of A...and we know you will agree with us.

About Patty Hoover
Dick and Patty Hoover are the retired owners of the Piney Creek General Store and the Waldorf A' Story Restrunt. We live next door to the Guest Haus. Relocated here from Dallas, Texas for a slower pace of traffic and life in general.

Why Patty Hoover chose Sheridan
We choose Story as a place to live permanently...because we enjoy the beauty and serenity of the place. Not very many people or cars...but still close enough to a big place when you need it.
What makes this cottage unique
The Guest Haus is right on a stream with places to sit and drink your morning coffee. Slow paced, great for relaxing or doing as much as your little heart desires. Large dining room for big families and a great commercial kitchen set up.
