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.

Keywords: unique old general store and restrunt turned into a Guest Haus, commercial kitchen, huge dining room, family style. Children must be included in total guest count when using instant quote for accurate rates.

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.

Patty Hoover purchased this cottage in 1993

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.

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.

UNIQUE AND WONDERFUL!

  • 5 of 5
We planned a big family get-together in Sheridan. We gave each of our children the option of hotel rooms or a rental home for the week of their stay. My son chose the Waldorf A'Story for his family -- and I'm so happy he did! His family had a delightful time in the amazing guest house. (It looks just like the pictures but it is so much more amazing in person). The girls loved the creek, the kittens living out back, the rock climbing and "exploring". With so many people in our group, this turned out be be a wonderful gathering place for family and friends. We had a BBQ and card party there one evening and everyone enjoyed themselves immensely. As Saturday approached (our family picnic day) we began to worry about rain. Our caterer (recommended, by the way, by Patty,the wonderful owner of the Waldorf) suggested we consider moving the event indoor. Where to find a place on such short notice?!? No problem! Patty generously offered to open her huge two story "barn/garage" for our event. It was perfect! I can't say enough about this amazing home and the wonderful owners. I've rented several times now through VRBO and this location is beyond a doubt the most unique and fun property we've leased. Loved it, loved the area, and the scenery and the owners. I can't think of one negative thing to say except the time went by too quickly.

Owner's Response: We so enjoyed your family staying with us Marlene. Our place is a wonderful gathering location for large families. There is so much to do around here that it can make from the youngest to the oldest satisfied with all there is to offer.

Unique is an apt description for the Waldorf A' Story Guest Haus. You must look closely or you might miss something really interesting.

Sure hope you can stay with us again the next time you come "home" to Sheridan. In Story there is no hustle or bustle, just wonderfully relaxing times.

Thank you for your outstanding review.

We stayed at this cabin for our honeymoon. The owners made us feel very at home. They baked fresh bread and picked lilacs for us. The property itself was very unique and serene

Owner's Response: It was great to see this newly married couple enjoy themselves so much in the town of Story. They brought two four wheelers and traversed the whole country side. When it rained, they snuggled up inside. So glad you enjoyed yourselves. For such a small town there is so much to do in the surrounding area. I know they certainly enjoyed the fishing. Hope to see you guys again some day. Patty and Dick Hoover

HOLIDAY MOUNTAIN RETREAT

  • 5 of 5
This cosy mountain retreat has a character all its own. It was at the same time a rustic retreat with modern conveniences. Story is a convenient departure point for cross country skiing and snowshoeing excursions into the Big Horns and day trips into nearby Sheridan. We especially enjoyed touring the museum at King's Saddlery in Sheridan and the Bradford Brinton Museum in Big Horn.

We love to hear how much people enjoy their stay with us and this lets others know that there is no problem spending a holiday away from your "home" when you have everything you could possibly need for an enjoyable stay our our haus. Hopefully we will see you back soon for a visit with your daughter. Happy New Year - Dick and Patty

Owner's Response: So glad you enjoyed your stay and were able to celebrate the holiday with your family. The aroma of that smoked turkey was quite enticing. It is always neat to meet family members of friends that I have spent time with. Hope you can spend more time at our Guest Haus on your next visit and may the right team win again!

WHIMSICAL RETREAT

  • 5 of 5
Kids had a blast running around this place pointing out all the interesting knick knacks that had been put into the concrete or stuck in a corner. The owners were very accommodating and enjoyable to talk to and made sure our entry was greeted with homemade banana bread and a bottle of red wine, something for everyone in the family. We had a great time doing a few of the hikes that they left a map of and the local Story playground offered a good picnic setting and fun in the creek along with some good equipment that you don't always see. The kitchen was easy to use and well stocked with all the necessities. Nice relaxing time for all. Thank you!

Owner's Response: We try to make our place as interesting as possible. Nothing run of the mill about us and that Sheep Wagon can really be a blast for the kids. So glad you enjoyed your stay and found plenty of things to keep you busy while seeing our beautiful town.
