Situated on one of the finest pieces of property in Sheridan County, our family's cabin makes a perfect retreat and gathering place. Approaching the cabin, the long circle drive leads to plentiful parking, garage and main entrance. Stepping out of the car, the first thing one notices is the fresh mountain air and the sound of the flowing creek.
The fully equipped kitchen and greatroom are the focal point inside while North Piney Creek and the wildlife are the focus outside. Sit on one of the decks in the mornings overlooking the creek and while sipping your coffee, you can watch the deer and turkey wander by. Walk the path to explore the back of the property or rest in the hammock reading your favorite Wallace Stegner book.
The greatroom has a high celling, huge plate glass windows, antler chandelier, stacked stone gas fireplace, 10 ft. long solid pine Amish country table, custom Ralph Lauren drapes and slipcovers chairs. There is also a Bose Wave for music, beautiful hand-carved German Armoire and two long down cushioned sofas.
The kitchen has everything you need for a comfortable stay. There are dishes and silverware for 18, Calphalon cookware, two ovens, stove, refrigerator, microwave and dishwasher. For your morning coffee, you have the choice of a traditional coffee maker or the Keurig K-cup coffee maker. Just off of the kitchen is the full-sized washer and dryer.
The three bedrooms on the main floor each have a queen bed with high thread count sheets and down duvets. Each room also has a twin rollaway bed and bedding.
Upstairs, there is a bar area, dance floor and turntable with fantastic vintage records. There is a large deck off of the dance floor area. The fourth bedroom, which is also upstairs, has a full bed, two twin beds and it's own en suite bathroom with shower. All of the bathrooms have wonderful, high end towels.
The wooded three acres make you feel as though you are worlds away from the hustle and bustle. Yet, if you are looking for a nice dinner out, the famous Tunnel Inn is just down the road and only a few minutes walk from Piney Falls Cabin. Additionally, you can walk to all that the town of Story has to offer including Piney Creek Pottery, a nice little library, grocery store, coffee shop, gift shops and churches.
Pick up a fishing license from the Story Store and you are welcome to use the our poles. There are also some inner tubes for floating the creek.
Guests can easily take advantage all that Buffalo and Sheridan have to offer. Things in and around Sheridan we recommend are: The Powder Horn Golf Club, Big Horn Equestrian Center and Polo Grounds, King Saddlery and Museum, Trail End Historic Sight, Fort Phil Kearney Historic Site, Kendrick Park and the Sheridan Rodeo.
In Buffalo, we recommend visiting the Occidental Hotel, Saloon & Virginian Restaurant and the Buffalo City Park, home to Wyoming's largest free outdoor swimming pool.
Story Days are a fun local celebration in August which features a parade, fireman's breakfast, cook-off/ pot-luck, craft fair, concerts, horseshoe tournament, Indian ceremonial dancing and kid's rodeo.
Piney Falls Cabin and Story, Wyoming are the place to create memories and likely a place you will not want to leave. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do!
Our family is from Wyoming, however, military life has led us far from home. So, we currently live in Falls Church, Virginia but spend as much time as we can back home in Wyoming.

This is truly is one of the finest pieces of property in the Big Horns. For years, we had been looking for just the right place for our family to enjoy each other's company and create memories. The moment we saw this cabin, the creek and the acreage, we knew this was it.
We selected this home for our family vacation and it was absolutely perfect! We had 5 adults and 2 kids and there was more than enough room. The property is very clean and well stocked with everything needed for a comfortable stay. The waterfall right in front of the home was so relaxing, especially for sleeping and early morning yoga! Fly fishing in the stream is great - lots of trout!! The large wooden dining table overlooking the stream is a great way to unwind with the family at the end of the day. And the location is very convenient to several amazing hiking trails. I highly recommend this home for your visit to Story.
This is a beautiful home on a very special piece of property. The setting is perfect for gathering a family together for a relaxing week! We had our three boys (19, 16, and 12) and my mother and father in law....plenty of room for everyone! Lots of wild turkeys and deer visited. The boys had a blast tubing on the river. We could not catch a fish (though we tried!) but the nice neighbor took pity and brought us a delicious trout! Good hiking nearby, lots of scenic drives, fun shopping in Sheridan. Beautifully furnished house !! A perfect week!
Our family stayed at this beautiful cabin in Story while attending a wedding weekend event. The listing description was very complete and the size of the cabin and photos "sold" us on selecting this site. The kitchen had all the basics needed for our stay and the bedrooms were well-stocked with linens. We wished we had more down time to just gather and sit out on the patio and listen to the beautiful creek. We were visited each day by the deer and turkeys! All of our adult children agreed that this cabin made our trip back to the Sheridan area on of the best ever! Hope it's available next year, especially Rodeo weekend!
Absolutely the best place for a family get together. The pictures online don't do the property justice. The bedrooms were spacious, living room was perfect for visiting , barroom dance floor are huge and spacious outdoor decks and lot incredible. I and all my family would highly reccomend this property for your ultimate Story- book Big horn vacation!!
We met some relatives from North Dakota and Minnesota at the cabin and it turned out to be the perfect place for our needs. We were a mixed age group ranging from 79 down to 7 and all 10 of us enjoyed the accommodations. We arrived at night to the sound of moving water and upon daylight we realized it was from the picturesque waterfall located right in front of the cabin! We were told this occurs occasionally and were happy to be the lucky recipients. The fresh clear mountain creek water was cold but refreshing and the children enjoyed walking from rock to rock and tubing too. They also enjoyed exploring the just under 3 acres. The owners were very helpful with any questions we had. The cabin was well stocked with all your needs and everyone slept great. The owners were available to answer any questions via phone. I WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS CABIN TO ANOTHER PARTY. HAVE FUN - WE DID!
With a population of 900 residents, Story, Wyoming is a mountain community located 17 miles south of Sheridan, 20 miles north of Buffalo and only 6 miles from Interstate 90. Yet, as you ascend into the Big Horn mountains, the sights, sounds and smells let you know that you have arrived at someplace very special.
There are some neat shops and restaurants in Story, but the lush mountain landscape and pure glacial run off of North Piney Creek are what make this place so appealing. The trout fishing is wonderful and there are hiking trails which head right out of the town and wind their way for miles up into the Big Horn National Forest. Other things to see are the Fish Hatchery, the historical Fort Phil Kearney and the locations of two important Indian battles- the Wagon Box Battle of 1867 and the Fetterman Fight of 1866. The Big Horn Equestrian Center and Polo grounds as well as the Powder Horn Golf Club are a short distance as well as all that both Sheridan and Buffalo have to offer.
