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!

We were very happy with this cottage.`

  • 4 of 5

We found everything clean and our hosts were very hospitable. We had motorcycles and were able to use garage to house them as well as hose to wash them off. All the utensils you will need are provided. The only caution is the pull-out sofa. If i hadn't had an air-mattress I could not have slept on it.

Best place in Sheridan!!!

  • 5 of 5

Can't say enough good things about this fabulous cottage in the wonderful town of Sheridan. It has everything you could possibly need and more! Our family has enjoyed this place twice now, and we couldn't ask for a more comfortable, quiet, relaxing experience. One of the best features is the location - within walking distance of downtown, a huge beautiful park and the serene wildlife sanctuary! The owners go above and beyond to make sure you have everything you need and are two of the most amiable, generous people I have ever met. I would recommend this place to absolutely anyone and everyone. Thank you so much Ellen and Rod for providing us the best vacation experience we could have ever hoped for! Miss it already!!

Wonderful little cottage to kick back, relax & enjoy a stress-free, very accomidating place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

If you want a place that has no comparison to staying in a hotel, giving you & your family a relaxing, quiet, at-your-own-pace getaway....this little cottage is it! From sitting on the comfy front porch to gathering on the back patio....or enjoying the nice sized pool available right next to the front porch, this cozy little place to stay in Sheridan made our visit to Wyoming that much more special!! The owners make sure you have everything you need to feel as if you're in your own home. It's located in a quiet neighborhood & you can take a very nice walk to the nearby Kendrick Park to view buffalo & elk. And a little further down the path has the best ice cream stand (Scoops), that we've ever been to with very affordable goodies & a great play park & creek to sit by & play in!

Thank you Rod & Ellen, for making our vacation even more memorable & fun!

-Shauna, Susan, Caitlin & Jesse

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!!
