About Linda Bortels

I have been a business owner in Cody since 1983 and owned and operated a roller skating facility until just a few years ago. I have also been a horse owner since the age of fourteen with the exception of the four years that I attended Western Michigan University. My family moved to Cody from South Lyon, Michigan where I boarded horses and raised german shepherds. In the later years I was also involved with the K-9 Search & Rescue Team. We brought Children, Horses, Dogs and Cats to 'Big Wonderful Wyoming'! All three children graduated from Cody High School with the youngest attending the Wapiti School from grades K thru 6. My Morgan Mare went from Show Horse to Mountain Horse. She took care of me on the trail; as well as packing out Elk for the family. I purchased her at six months of age and lost her a few years ago at the great age of thirty three. She was my horse of a Lifetime! Cody Country is most definitely an Awesome place to raise a family and to visit

Linda Bortels purchased this barn in 1986

The perfect vacation!

  • 5 of 5

I have been meaning to write a review for a while and I cannot say enough good things about the Stagecoach River Ranch. Linda was so pleasant during our stay but stays to herself so you don't even notice she's there except to feed the horses in the morning! The fishing out back is out of this world! My boyfriend fly fished all over the area our entire weeks stay and he said hands down Linda's stretch of the river outback was the best by far! The bunkhouse was so clean and the bed and sheets were so comfortable! We stayed the end of Sept of 2013 and the weather was perfect! Upon arrival it was 80 degrees and by the end of our stay it was snowing! I cannot wait to get back there soon! It was by far the best vacation I have ever taken and there is so much to do in Cody and the entrance to Yellowstone is very close as well! Thanks again Linda sorry it took so long to write a review!

A Perfect Wyoming Stop

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I were at the end of a 9 day trip in Montana and Wyoming when we arrived at Linda's place. The Bunkhouse is an excellent homebase for exploring the area. We made our way into downtown Cody and Buffalo Bills Museum of the West, and traveled Chief Joseph Scenic Parkway and Bear Tooth Pass on Linda's suggestion...NOT TO BE MISSED! If you travel to that area, be sure to do one of the most scenic drives in the world!

The Bunkhouse was perfect for us, we sat on the covered porch and enjoyed the scenery each night and had coffee there in the morning. We met some great folks, traveling with their horses and although we didn't fish, the river was beautiful and we enjoyed our walking down by it.

We were able to check in early and Linda was super easy to work with and very accommodating. We would definitely recommend staying here especially if you are looking to explore Yellowstone or the Cody area.

Fishing on the Shoshone River

  • 5 of 5

Oh my goodness what a wonderful place to stay to catch TROUT! We caught lots and lots of large rainbows, cutthroats and cutbows. Most of them were sixteen to eighteen inches long and one was twenty-one inches. The river was swift and BEAUTIFUL! Perfect for trout fishing. We were here for two weeks and I am already to go back. Enjoyed Cody and the museum and eating at the Irma Hotel Restaurant prime rib buffet. Was so nice to be so close to Cody but far enough away to enjoy the outdoors and see the large herds of elk right next to us. We also saw many antelope and lots and lots of bunny rabbits. The cabin was wonderful! The bed was comfortable and we loved having the horses around us. Linda was very nice and informative about the area. If you want the perfect river to fish on to catch large fish, a very clean wonderful cabin to stay in and Cody close by, then don't miss staying at 'The Bunkhouse'. You will love it!

Absolutely Stunning

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I wanted something remote yet with enough amenities to accommodate our two young kids. This place was perfect. Warm, cozy and extremely comfortable inside. Stunning views outside the front door. Cody is only a visually stunning 20 mins away. Our only regret was the weather was poor and we couldn't spend a few more days playing in this wonderful area. The owner, Linda, was absolutely wonderful. Thank you for everything!

Perfectly Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

We chose this location because it was halfway between Cody and East Gate of Yellowstone, and because I have grandchildren living in Cody. What a beautiful place. We walked down to the river. My grown boys and grandchildren came over for the day to grill out under the covered porch and look for arrowheads. Not too far from town for shopping, eating, etc. And the views.......spectacular! Linda was so helpful, even coming over the first night to help us get the television going (previous guests had gotten the settings off). We even got pictures of her beautiful horses coming to greet us. We would stay there again in a heartbeat....we absolutely loved the decor. We can't think of one negative thing to say about our stay. Very quiet and private.

Great Stay

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed here in July. We had a wonderful time. Everything was so nice and clean. We so appreciate Linda giving us advice as to where to go and what to see. We would have missed the Bear Tooth Hwy if she had not told us about it. Thank you for this wonderful experience.
