Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, this converted one-room schoolhouse has all the comforts of a modern home, plus an idyllic location to boot! As soon as you first arrive, you'll be in awe of the abode's stunning surroundings. From the home's large private deck, you'll enjoy sweeping, unobstructed views of Big Horn Basin and the towering Bighorn Mountain Range beyond, which includes renowned geological features such as Sheep Mountain Anticline and Devil's Kitchen.
Inside, the home's historic feel and cozy accommodations offer a comfortable oasis in nature. The original one-room schoolhouse is the main feature of this residence, featuring an extensive library, cozy woodburning stove and a unique collection of local art, including several Native American rock art pieces. Everything you need to feel as comfortable as possible during your stay is here, including wireless internet access, central heating and air conditioning, in-unit laundry machines, and even a telephone available for your communication needs.
After an action-packed day of exploration, return home to utilize the generously-sized full kitchen, equipped with all necessary modern culinary appliances. After preparing dinner in the kitchen, gather around the sizable adjacent dining table to enjoy your home-cooked meal with your loved ones. Or, head outside to the wooden picnic table on the deck to dine al fresco! Later, select a book from the home's expansive collection and retreat to one of the 2 inviting bedrooms to read before resting up for the next exciting day.
You'll love this home's wonderful location, between Black Hills National Forest and Yellowstone National Park, which is also the halfway point between the towns of Sheridan and Cody. From here, Sheridan is a 1.5-hour drive east, and Cody is an hour away to the west. While the home itself is quiet and secluded, you'll find endless opportunities close by for outdoor activities and day trips with your companions. You'll find that the area's nearby extensive trail system is ideal for 4 wheeling and off-roading. Additionally, numerous backcountry roads allow access to the array of surrounding geological features, including nearby dinosaur track sites. Other popular outdoor activities throughout the Bighorn Mountain Range include big-game hunting, fishing, mountain biking, birding and hiking during the warmer months, along with snowmobiling and skiing in the winter. After an activity-filled day, a trip to the nearby Thermopolis Hot Springs is sure to help you unwind!
During the summer, the Medicine Wheel Archeological Site is a must see, located high in the Bighorn Mountains. Additionally, Shell Falls in Shell Creek Canyon is exceptionally beautiful, situated just under a half-hour drive away. Regardless of how you choose to spend your time here, this wonderfully unique Greybull vacation rental cottage will serve as the perfect home base, making it truly easy to immerse yourself in Wyoming's unending natural beauty!

Perfect place for our family!
This location was a great spot for us and our families. So nice to all be together and not have to worry about shushing kids. They couldn't wait to wake up and go outside and explore! Kitchen was well stocked, we did a lot of cooking. A very comfortable environment. We will definitely be booking again!
Great property and location!
This was definitely one of the best places at which I've stayed. The house has everything you'd need to make your stay enjoyable with ample room. It was very neat and clean and had beautiful views of the Bighorn Mountains. However, the best part about it was the history. The host did an amazing job of restoring and preserving the old schoolhouse and adding on to it in a way that didn't detract from the original structure. It even has an extensive library of old books, much of which are historical books on the area. This was the perfect basecamp for all our adventures in the area. We will definitely book here on future trips.
One-Of-A-Kind Historic Western Property
This property was just as expected and just what I was looking for. Spacious property and schoolhouse. Lots of history and information about the area in the building. Very comfortable - I had to use both the heating and cooling during my stay. Could easily accommodate 8 people. The kitchen is large, up to date and well-stocked. The surrounding acres are fenced and great for dogs. We were visited by deer and rabbits every day. Amazing view of the Big Horn Mountains.
The owner was helpful and very accommodating.
I would recommend this property to anyone looking for history, peace and quiet and the solace of open spaces.
much better than a hotel
nice central location to explore the area..very spacious.everything you need
Amazing Historic Spot in the Big Horns
The Stone School House was a perfect spot for my husband and I during our trip to the Big Horns. Just a few miles down from the mountain, both the historic portion and addition to the house were beautifully built and included all of the amenities we needed (including a coffee grinder). The unique space of the original schoolhouse, historic photographs and books were an added bonus to our morning and evening views of the range sitting on the back porch. John was a gracious host who gave us some wonderful tips about spots in the mountains and also accommodated a change in our reservation with ease. We hope to return again.
p.s There were only the two of us but if you had a larger group or family this space would easily accommodate with the original house and addition's ample space and a conducive layout while still providing some privacy.
3 generation vacation
Great location, great view, it was a memorable vacation and we would stay there again in a heart beat!! We loved the history of this place. My mom shared stories of her one room school days and we also talked about the stories my grandma had told over the years as well. Thank you so much for sharing this rare beauty! In just 3 short days we went to Shells Falls, Devils Kitchen, Buffalo Bill Center in Cody, Hot Springs in Thermopolis and drove the Wind River Cannon.
