Bighorn River Valley House Rental Photos and Description

5 bedrooms, 4 Bathrooms, 5,000 Sq Ft, Sleeps 12+

The Bighorn Bluff House is hands down the finest rental property in The Bighorn Valley and is conveniently located right between the two most popular fishing access sites and boat ramps, After bay and Three Mile. There are no other homes within earshot and nothing obstructing the fantastic views that are afforded by this home being perched atop a peninsular bluff. Your View to the west shows the after bay dam all the way up to the mouth of the Bighorn Canyon. The view to the north has the rolling grasslands for miles. The view to the east takes you downriver as far as the eye can see.

The home has 5 bedrooms. Four of the bedrooms have a queen size bed as well as a twin bed. The master bedroom has a California king size bed as well as futon. There is also a pullout couch and roll-away beds.

There is a full size kitchen, dining room, two pool tables, Foosball table, WiFi, Flat screen TV with Satellite. The exterior of the house boasts three decks to enjoy the views as well as an outdoor eating area complete with BBQ and patio table and chairs. There are two sets of horseshoe pits as well as a skeet shooter sunk in concrete.

About Eric Anderson

The Denver Fly Shop formerly owned the Bighorn Angler as well as Polly's Place in Fort Smith. Now we have a few great rental properties still in Fort Smith geared towards the discerning angler.

Eric Anderson purchased this house in 2007

Why Eric Anderson chose Bighorn River Valley

#1. The view. There is no finer view of the valley. you can see all the way from the mouth of bighorn canyon all the way downstream as far as the eye can see.

#2. The space. At 5,000 square feet and 5 bedrooms there is plenty of room for groups up to 14.

#3. The finishing touches. Granite counter tops, new flooring as of spring 2014, several living areas and an amazing deck.

What makes this house unique

The solitude afforded on this property is second to none. No other home is within earshot and this is the only rental home out of earshot from highway 313. All the other rental homes are no more than 20 yards away. The peaceful noise of crickets and frogs are all you will hear except for a small pack of coyotes at dusk.

Bighorn Fishing Trip!!!

  • 5 of 5
This house was perfect for my family and friends. We had enough space for the 9 of us and the large property is very private with spectacular views of the valley and river. My kids loved the horse shoe pits and the pool table which was a great retreat after a full day of fishing on the river. We were able to cook all of our meals at the house and have bbq dinners. We are looking forward to our next trip here!

Wonderful

  • 5 of 5
We stayed here once three years ago and again two weeks ago and I just wanted to write a review to show how much we appreciate the upgrades the owners made. We VRBO a lot and most of them stay the same year after year but this home just had a beautiful remodel that took it from good to great. I love that the doors are all now solid pine! We have a snorer in our group and between the insulated walls and the solid wood doors we couldn't hear them.
The new stainless range is the one i want in my house someday and the new contertops were granite and very nice.

Oh, the fishing was great too!!!

Owner's Response: This person did not even stay at the property and is upset that they called the morning of check-in and asked to cancel because their travel plans had changed. They demanded to have their deposit back. I offered to even hold the deposit for a stay another time. Instead I received an email full of coarse language and veiled threats. We are generally very flexible with rescheduling but when you cancel on the date of check in for a week long stay during our busiest month what are we supposed to do? He even said he would call us on his way over to give us the remaining balance with a credit card...

There are not urine stains anywhere, there is no mold, the basement has brand new carpet that gets professionally cleaned once a month, and all of our guests have loved staying here. This is a malicious person but VRBO will not remove this review because this individual had a reservation, even though I forwarded them the email he sent regarding the very last minute cancellation and then the absurdly rude emails that never stopped coming from this crass individual.

Furthermore, he would have been one of the first to stay after we remodeled the entire house! The entire house was renovated top to bottom with new carpets, tiling, granite countertops and first class finishing....

We are not a corporation, we are a family renting the house our kid grew up in in hopes to be able to afford to not have to sell it, but it is getting tougher and tougher these days having to deal with individuals like these...

Awesome place.

  • 5 of 5
Thanks for such a great place. Most of the smaller cabins are a bed and heater (at best) at similar cost per person. Add in the creature comforts of home and you truly feel like your on vacation. Close to town and right next to my favorite fishing river. This place rocks and I highly recommend.

I stayed at the bluffs house with a large group of friends this fall. Everything was pretty darn nice. Lots of room for us to spread out, and clean. The views from the deck are spectacular. Good deal

Bighorn retreat

  • 4 of 5
This last Sept I took 8 vets, a total of 14 people, up to the Bighorn for a two day float. Luckily we found The Bluff House as a base for our outing. Setting up the reservations was easy, finding it was fairly easy, house was clean, and the location was terrific w/ Ft. Smith and fly shops a 5 min drive. Hal's is a nice little restaurant as well.

Lots of beds and couches, as well as other things for evening fun.

Make certain you load up w/ groceries and other items before you get there and enjoy your stay.

The Bighorn River is one of the most legendary rivers in all of fly fishing. This home is situated halfway between the First boat launch / fishing access site and the second Three Mile Access Site. It is just over a mile to the town of Fort Smith where the three fly shops, restaurant, and gas station are located. It is the perfect spot for groups from 5 and up and we also host corporate dinners with up to 55 people at this property as well.
