Private, Quiet, Beautiful 3 BR sleeps 8 plus loft area. Open plan. Big Views.
We are a family of 5 from Colorado. We travel the world, but make our best memories here in Wyoming. Now that our kids have gone to college and beyond, the home is less used. We are self-employed, an engineer and an attorney and both entrepreneurs. We separately hail from Oklahoma and from Massachusetts, so an unlikely pair.
Cody purchased this House in 2005
Why Cody chose Alcova
We bought this land (120 acres) and built this cabin because it is some of most beautiful land around a swim-able lake we could find, and we live over 4 hours away near Boulder, Colo. The home was designed to maximize family togetherness in an open main level with kitchen, dining, living and a huge deck, all with views of the lake and sculpted ravines nearby. If you like geology, you will find plenty to love here.

Hidden Gem for fishing grey reef
This is a great property for hunting trips, fishing trips, family gatherings or anything you need some peace and quiet at night and a large house. The house is on 120 acres and it sits above Alcova Lake. Amazing views of the lake and the wildlife (deer all over) made it nice to be outside on the huge deck. We spent a good amount of time outside on the deck when we came home from fishing grey reef each day. The kitchen has everything you would need and there is also a bbq grill on the deck. The house was clean and the check in process was simple. Next time we all fish grey reef again, we will plan on booking this house again.
We had a great time in Casper and having a nice place to come home to each night made it even better. Thanks for a great place Cody!
Great place for family and friends to gather and enjoy the views. Loved watching the early morning sun sparkling on the lake, and waiting for the daily appearance of the mule deer. I would highly recommend Cody’s place to kick back and enjoy the beauty and the history of this unique area.
Our family loved this secluded, gorgeous property. Top line carpets, towels, and sheets. Amazing cork floor that feels like walking on a cloud, while you are literally looking at the clouds from the top of the hills. Owner was quick to respond to all questions. Property includes numerous additions, such as oils, spices and condiments.
Kids loved the view from kids bedrooms as well. Whole house is situated to take in the panoramic views. Unexpected fun with the working telescope. My 17 year old was able to find Saturn and even focus in on the rings. The Alcova Retreat (as we called it) was a magical get away.
Beautiful house! Much more spacious than it appears in the pictures. The views from the house are amazing. The owner is very responsive to any questions or concerns. I read all the reviews prior to our stay and was a little concerned that there’ no air conditioning. Although it got a little stuffy in the afternoons it really wasn’t a problem as it cools off nicely in the evenings. Maybe bring a fan if you’re able to. I would definitely stay again.
Great place with everything as advertised, beautiful view. Cody was very responsive and has thought through all the details to make staying very smooth. We would stay here again.
Alcova Fly Fishing Trip
This was our second year staying at this cabin for our anual fly fishing trip. The home at Alcova could not have been better for our trip. The home was extremely well kept, clean, and absolutely met all our needs. When we arrived and first parked at the home, we realized we were in a very special place. We had everything we needed in the home for cooking large meals for our group, for bbq-ing, for all of us to eat together at one large table, for having enough beds and rooms for all of us, and for even having extra space in the home to spread out and really relax and not feel too cramped. The outdoor deck was truly amazing for sitting and enjoying the views of Lake Alcova and the surrounding valley. Having 3 bathrooms was perfect for us for everyone getting ready in the early mornings for heading out all day on fishing adventures. The kitchen was perfectly stocked for our every need for all of our meals. We absolutely loved how secluded and private the property is and we had more than ample parking for our vehicles and drift boats. One of the best aspects of the home is that all of the bedrooms are downstairs in the basement, which made for cool sleeping nights on a few of the really hot days. The owner was very easy to communicate with leading up to our trip and to discuss specific details with in a tremendously responsive manner. We would strongly recommend this home to anyone looking to stay in the general Alcova area and we are hoping to go back there again sometime soon!
