Dave and Melissa Shipek are both retired from their careers as a firefighter and teacher. Born and raised in California they decided to live in the wilderness and share their experiences with all who wished to have an extreme contrast from urban life. They live on the same 30 acres and offer a wide variety of activities plus gourmet meals.
Melissa purchased this cabin in 2012
This property is one of a kind with the combination of solitude, nature, a personal chef and access to Jackson Hole to enjoy the towns' many diverse offerings. It was a dream come true for Dave and Melissa and we hope it is for you too.
Reflection Cabin is dedicated to Melissa's grandfather who lived during the same time as Geronimo and was a pioneer in every sense of the word. It is also dedicated to her father who is 95 years old. It carries the antique feel of a wood burning stove and ice box and is decorated in western and Native American style.
A quiet oasis in a true wilderness. We were so impressed with our visit. Our cabin was cute, immaculately clean and very private. Our hosts were accommodating and very friendly. Wildlife everywhere, mule deer, moose, snow-shoe hare, the list goes on and on. Although we came to visit the parks we felt even more in the wilderness during our stay at reflection cabin. Such a peaceful experience.
Coming out here, I was not sure what to expect, but as soon as I stepped foot in the cabin I immediately fell in love with the scenery, rustic lifestyle, and the the feeling that I was the only person in the world. There is so much privacy and allows for one to meditate and relieve all of their worldly stresses. The owners some of the nicest people I have ever met! They are very accommodating and make sure that you have what you need. Dave, the owner, is an expert chef and owns a cafe just down the road from the ranch- called Branding Iron Cafe. The food is the best in the area and, in fact, the best I have ever had anywhere. I highly recommend this for anyone that needs to escape reality or just needs to relax for a while.
My family and I spent two nights at Reflections Cabin and we enjoyed every minute of it. The cabin itself offers comfortable bedding--a queen, I think, and a futon--as well as plenty of space for food and clothing storage. Lots of candles and lamps allow for more than enough light after dark. The sawdust toilet was a hit with our 10 year old son, who marveled at this natural and ingenious sanitation. Cabin is decorated with beautiful artwork and there are shelves jammed with books. Plenty to do right outside your door--ATVs to ride, a teepee to investigate, friendly squirrels that will eat peanuts right out of your hand, and some great hiking both at nearby Tetons and the Wind River Range--but the best thing about this cabin will no doubt be your interactions with its owners, two of the nicest, friendliest and funniest people you'll have the privilege of meeting. Do yourself a favor and request some of Dave's cooking--the mini breakfast souffles, meatloaf, & sliders were absolutely exquisite. I can't think of a better place to stay!
We booked this cabin for two nights as part of our honeymoon and it turned out to be the highlight of our two week trip! This cabin is sooooo romantic! Beautifully built by the owner's loving hands, not a single detail has been ignored. It is very rustic, and nestled in the Bridger-Tetons. We hiked trails on the property and nearby trails in the Bridger-Tetons, my husband went fly fishing all three days and we enjoyed the stores in nearby Pinedale and Jackson. We had intimate and peaceful dinners on the front deck and saw a mother moose and her newborn. Such a wonderful place to connect with your significant other, yourself and nature. David and Missi are amazing hosts! We have already booked the cabin for our anniversary :-)
Reflection cabin is definitely the place to go if you need to escape the frenzy of everyday life. This gorgeous cabin is the perfect spot to reflect, reset, and reconnect with what life is really all about. Dave and Miss have created a wonderfully comfortable rustic cabin where you can enjoy peace and solitude. Or, take a short stroll over to the lodge for a fabulous dinner created by Dave, and wonderful conversation with these two great people.
The day and night we spent here was magical. The light of candles and oil lamps in the evening brings out the warmth of the cabin while imparting a sense of rest and simplicity. It forces you to slow down and relax, which is what this cabin is all about. The cabin is spotless and comfortable. The antique wood stove makes it as cozy as can be.
If you’re looking for a break from the noise, and a natural place to explore and relax, Reflection Cabin is it!
After my fist visit to the property a year ago, I had to return. Actually, I have decided I will return every year. It is absolutely mandatory for my well being and peace of mind to be reminded of the beauty and life that you find in God's creation when separated from the hustle and bustle of daily life. It's a perfect start to a new year that has affected the way that I live the rest of the year. To live intentionally, you need therapy like this.
I came this year to finish a book that I have been writing for 5 years. I can't imagine how I would have finished without the serenity and freedom you experience at a place like this.
I would not only suggest a visit for an experience of a lifetime, but to re-connect to something deep inside that just may get lost in the shuffle unless you intentionally look for it.
Thanks Missy and Dave!!! I can't put a price on the gift of spending this time on your property and with you. The food was AMAZING Dave...so was your company as always.
Thanks for reading...

This property is amazing. Nestled amidst apens and fir trees at the end of a 6 mile dirt road you will experience a beautiful new cabin following an 1800's theme. You can be secluded away from everyone and everything or enjoy the attractions in Jackson Hole. This cabin is not like any other.
