We REALLY enjoyed our stay at the FLYING W in Dubois, WY! Our family of 5 (2 adults & 3 children; ages 10, 12 & 14) had more than enough room! The kids loved the room and not having to share space! We loved the house! It's so much easier for us than staying in a hotel room! The house gave us room for everyone to be together; or to spend time alone. It's close to a park and a walkway beside the Wind River.
We will recommend the Flying-W to our family and friends! It's clean, quiet, and located in the wonderful quaint and quiet town of Dubois. We enjoyed the large decks (both front & back) to sit and enjoy a cup of coffee, or to listen to the peaceful Wind River.
The location of this property was perfect for us! We spent time during the day exploring the area (Grand Teton & Yellowstone National Parks), shopping and then could go "home" to rest. Laundry, Wi-Fi and TV are all on-site! The Flying W Rental Home is very well kept and maintained. We didn't have any problems with our reservations, or communicating with the owners who are caring and friendly; plus helpful in giving us suggestions of things to see & do in the area!
We enjoyed our time spent at the Whiskey Basin Habitat Management Area searching for wildlife and petroglyphs. We actually found a couple of petroglyphs!
The National Bighorn Sheep Interpretive Center was fun! They offer a short video (for a nomimal $ fee) that provides great information on bighorn sheep, plus they also have a small shop with some unique jewelry, t-shirts and other gifts.
We enjoyed Daylight Donuts (oh, yum!), and The Cowboy Cafe. We spent an entire afternoon shopping and visiting the stores which are located in Dubois.
Welty's General Store was enjoyed by all us; they have both old and new things for sell, or to see. Our youngest bought himself a cowboy hat, and we bought a jar of some blackberry jam, which was made locally!
Dubois Super Foods was conveniently close for buying groceries, ice and to buy our fishing licenses. Exxon has gasoline and some real good food too! We enjoyed Stewart's Trapline Gallery and the jewelry, rugs, baskets, and other quality (Indian) goods.
We caught some beautiful rainbow trout at a nearby lake. Prepared the trout and took them to Yellowstone with us where we found a picnic area to use. Cooked the trout on an open grill. At Jackson we enjoyed a rodeo. Rode horses. Took a boat ride on Jenny Lake to hike; saw Hidden Falls. Fun & enjoyable experience! Dubois = memories!
