Very comfy - even during hot days

  • 5 of 5

We came to Sheridan for a family reunion and stayed 4 nights. We're newbies to Home Away and weren't sure what to expect. The weather was in the 80s and the cottage stayed cool until the day before we left when it was 96 degrees at 8 pm. It was the only time we used the A/C. That was also the evening the 4 point Whitetail buck visited us in the yard.

Everything we needed was here and in great shape. Very clean, too. Thank you to the Howell's for making this available. Better than a motel any day! We'll definitely use Home Away again and will look for this house for our next trip to Sheridan.

Great stop along our road trip

  • 5 of 5

The house was a great "break" from the hotels we were staying at along our road trip. We were able to put our feet up for a couple of days and it was nice to be able to get some groceries and make some meals instead of being dependent on restaurants. The kids loved the pool and we grabbed some popcorn to have a family movie night using one of the DVDs on the shelf. Thanks guys!

We were in town for the Bighorn Trail Runs. This home was perfect for the two of us and our two canines. The location was great – at the top of Kendrick Park and a block from the buffalo and elk farm. We were just a minute from downtown too. The house was clean, well kept and had all the furnishings/amenities one could want. If we come back to Sheridan we'll be staying here! Thanks Rod and Ellen!

I stayed 8 months and loved every minute!

  • 5 of 5

Rod and Ellen were so sweet to allow me to rent this wonderful home for 8 months during an interim employment situation. They spoiled me rotten while I was there. Any request was accommodated as soon as possible.

I highly recommend this property to anyone visiting the beautiful Sheridan area and Big Horn Mountains for either a short visit or for an extended stay. Just bring your clothes and toiletries, because everything else you can think of is provided.

Rod and Ellen are an excellent example of the fabulous welcoming people you will encounter in Sheridan.

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

It was perfect in all ways! Owners live next door, came and introduced himself on first day and left us a note for last day for instructions. Immaculate in cleanliness! Had an above ground pool in front yard that we did not really have opportunity to use... Kitchen had all necessary things but we actually didn't end up using it. Washer and dryer also available for use... Which we did a couple times. Bed was very comfortable and all linens were available and in great shape.

WiiFii connection was excellent and TV was sufficient for us. I had to remote in for an extended length of time to work, no issues with dropped access.

Location in Sheridan is PERFECT!!! Relatives live out Big Goose so it could not have been better. Very close to park and down town. Very quiet location and we would stay here again 10 out of 10 times!

Close and favorite place to walk to is 2 blocks from the Cottage front door. There our guests can see the live buffalo and elk that live in Sheridan's Kendrick Park (Free of charge)...Beautiful mountain views along the pathway down the hill to the Park playground and ice cream stand (summer months). The other end of the Park has a community pool (seasonal). For people who love to stroll a light mosey past the playground and across the eastern walking bridge will bring the wanderer to the Whitney Commons green space which borders on the YMCA. Now you only need to walk two more blocks and you are on Sheridan's main street....enjoy!!
