Cody cottage description

Welcome to our Southfork Shangri La. Enjoy the end-of-the-road privacy and solitude of our 80 acres of Wyoming Wonderland. No traffic, just birds, bunnies and Bambi’s abounding. Sit on the large deck and enjoy the ever changing light and shadows on the panoramic mountains and views of historic Castle Rock. Take a hike on the BLM land that adjoins our property and wet your line in the beautiful Southfork of the Shoshone River. Roast a hotdog over the riverside fire pit and make s'mores for dessert while watching the river roll by. It’s like camping at Yellowstone without the crowds (and without sleeping in a tent). You may enjoy it so much you forget to go to Yellowstone National Park which is only 60 miles away via the scenic Stagecoach Road.

The cozy guesthouse was renovated with all new furniture, carpet and paint in the Summer of 2009. When you’ve had enough nature and the outdoors head inside, kick back in the leather recliner and catch up on the news or watch a movie on the flat panel TV. At night after watching shooting stars and marveling at the Milky Way, enjoy the queen bed in the master bedroom and tuck the kids or your friends into the aspen log bunk bed in the second bedroom, (a full sized bed with a twin on top). Fear of heights? That’s okay -your guests can sleep on the full sized sleeper sofa in the living room instead.

Your vacation would not be complete without visiting the nearby attractions in fabulous Cody, Wyoming. The World Class museums of the Buffalo Bill Center of the West are a must do and you won’t want to miss the free evening gunfight at the Historic Irma Hotel. Of course if it’s Summer that means there is a Rodeo and a variety of musical reviews to be seen in town too. Want something more adventurous? The area has many opportunities for river rafting, kayaking, rock climbing, horseback riding, ATV’s, hunting, fishing and mountain biking. Bring your boat and go out on nearby Buffalo Bill Reservoir. If It’s Winter then there is downhill skiing, cross country skiing, snowboarding, snowshoeing, snowmobiling and world class ice climbing. Day trips can take you to Billings or Red Lodge, MT, to the Pryor Mountains to watch the wild horses, to the beautiful Big Horn Mountains, the Beartooths or to Thermopolis for a dip in the hot springs and the tremendous Dinosaur Museum (home to an Archaeopteryx fossil, one of only 10 in the world). History buffs will enjoy visiting the Heart Mountain Relocation Center where the story of the Japanese Americans who were interned by the government during World War II is told.

Nature lovers, sportsmen, adventure lovers, artists, and folks looking for a quiet spot to just sit and relax will love this cozy cottage. Families will appreciate the large grassy yard for the kids to run and play on. There is plenty of parking for all your cars and RV or boat trailers too. So grab your fishing pole, hiking boots and camera and prepare to fall in love with Wonderful Wyoming.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2009

              About the owner: After nearly 30 years of living in the flat, hot, dry region of West Texas we decided that when we retire we want to see trees, mountains and listen to the sound of running river water for the next 30 years. The quiet, peaceful spot we found is our idea of heaven.

              Why the Owner Chose Cody:
              The Cody area is wonderful. The Mountains, the rivers, the trout, the variety of things to do in the area, the small town attitude with cultural events that are normally restricted to bigger cities, the great entertainment and shopping opportunities all met with our needs. It couldn't be better.

              The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
              Being at the end of the road makes for a lot of peace and quiet that brings a lot of wildlife. Listening to the river while sitting on the deck, fishing right out the back door, sunsets and moon rise over the Mountains, watching the wildlife that shares our yard,(deer, elk, coyotes, rabbits, chukars, hummingbirds, magpies, northern flickers, pine siskens, gold finches, kestrals, hawks, bald eagles, Golden eagles and even the occasional bear or mountain lion). The second largest population of Big Horn Sheep in Wyoming spend the winter in the mountains just down the road. We love going for drives and picnics in the nearby national forest.
