Best Vacation Rental We've Ever Had

  • 5 of 5

We had to find a rental for a family wedding and were very unsure where to stay in Sheridan. I found this rental through VRBO and took my chances as you always do when you go through a website. When we arrived we were more than pleasantly surprised-we were thrilled! This gorgeous little place is amazingly well kept and is truly an oasis. It has a kitchen I'd love to duplicate in my own home. Every need has been anticipated for you. Sometimes you stay in places where you end up needing to go and buy things just to get through your stay-not so here. Everything you can imagine is there with enough for everyone. It is beyond clean and is beautiful. We wished we could have stayed longer. It is nice when you stay somewhere that feels like home after traveling every day to see family or while driving to see the sights. I wish that all vacation rentals were this well appointed-she truly does it right and you won't regret your stay. We had our children with us and found that they were incredibly comfortable. The fenced back yard was great for our toddler who really wanted to be outside in the beautiful weather. It is also fairly accessible although I didn't see a ramp so if you are in need of this there would have to be adjustments to access. However, the cottage itself is incredibly close to "town" as well as to the library, a spray park and many other family-friendly activities. I'm not sure that is well advertised on her site but it should be. That was a definite plus! Thank you Melissa for a fantastic stay!

Great Place

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Melissa's Cottages was perfect, even better than the pictures show. The property was extremely clean and well kept. Melissa spent a good half our explaining everything in the house and made sure we had her number in case we had questions or needed anything. We were made to feel right at home from the moment we came in. The house is beautiful and very cozy while still being modern in appliances and decor. Sheridan is a fabulous town with a lot to do as far as little main street shops and restaurants as well as great hiking only 20-30 minutes driving. We would recommend this place to anyone and everyone and have already done so with friends.

Enjoyed my stay at Sheridan

  • 5 of 5

The owner took great pride and time telling me about the history of this cottage plus the operation of all appliances. The cottage has that warm cozy feeling so sleeping was not a problem (the bed was very comfortable). The decor was very nicely done with modern appliances for cooking and cleaning. It is just a short walking distance to Main St. shops and restaurants. There was a very nice patio with a grill should you feel the need to have a cookout. I am looking forward to my next visit.

Wonderful and Charming Property

  • 5 of 5

This is a very wonderful and charming cottage to stay at. Very clean with all the comforts of home. It can be classified as a second home. The owner went beyond the "call of duty" so to speak in explaining about the property, how to operate things and where everything was at. She is very accomodating and good to work with. She is a wealth of information telling about where things are at in Sheridan and the surrounding areas. Even gave information as to where to find the best place to find the perfect cup of coffee in town which I totally agree with! Strong points of this cottage are: 1) Has a very nice backyard with patio furniture, 2) Kitchen is top class, 3) Both bedrooms are tastefully decorated, and comfortable ensuring a perfect rest, 4) Off street parking is good and easy. I would stay there again and recommend this property to family and friends. The photos do accurately reflect this property, however, seeing it in person makes it even better-a pleasant surprise.

Perfect for Family AND Business Trip!

  • 5 of 5

I travel (a lot) for my job! I travel 7 states and drive over 45K miles per year! During the summer months, when the family can come along, the challenge is to find a site that meets all of our needs. Melissa's Cottage was just the thing! Convenient for business, comfortable for the family: kitchen, laundry, walking distance to town, great park & river. Melissa is a great hostess, too. She had a chance to share a tour of the house with us so that we'd feel welcome and relaxed. (Later this summer, we were passing through town, and met Melissa for a bite to eat, and to catch up on all the news of the day.) Thanks, Melissa! We'll be back!

A Great Place to Stay in Sheridan

  • 5 of 5

I loved staying at Melissa's Cottage. For me, the benefits were many: We were within walking distance of local family and friends and just a block or so from Sheridan's historic downtown. With a grill and a lovely backyard, we invited family for a barbecue. We spent a lot of our down time hanging out in the wonderful kitchen (equipped with all the amenities, including a coffee grinder), but the living room and reading nook are also great spaces to spend time in.

Don't let the word "cottage" fool you. This is a full-size, two-bedroom house with lots of space. We were three adults and a teenager and had more than enough room.

Sheridan is about mid-way between Bighorn and Ranchester/Dayton, so you can go in either direction for beautiful mountain views, wildlife, and hiking.

The Cottage was perfect for our visit.
