Dubois house description

Vacation with family or friends at our beautiful retreat in the Wind River Valley about 5 miles west of Dubois, Wyoming.
This spacious, comfortable ranch house is set in the center of 294 private acres, a spectacular site directly adjacent to the Shoshone National Forest and the Wind River Range. The windows and decks provide breathtaking views across the valley to the peaks of the Absoroka mountains, red rock badlands, sagebrush hills and forest. It is easily accessible by car all year round, less than a mile via good road from Wyoming Route 26, 10 minutes from the picturesque town of Dubois, and 20 minutes from the Wind River Indian Reservation to the east. Private trails begin just outside the door, leading directly into the Shoshone National Forest and Warm Springs Canyon, a lovely secluded fishing and picnicking spot (see photo). There are gentle horses on site and if requested, the owner can offer instruction in grooming, horse care and safe lead-line pony rides for children and novices at no cost. An excellent riding facility one mile away offers expert western or English riding instruction.

The house is comfortably furnished with a large great room/dining area with hearth and wood stove, perfect for congenial gatherings. It can easily accommodate 8-10 guests including children, with 3 large bedrooms plus a sleeping loft, 2½ baths and a well-equipped modern kitchen. One bedroom has a queen bed and private bath; 2 other bedrooms each have queen and twin bed; the loft has a double futon bed. The shared bath is designed for privacy with separate shower/bath, toilet and lavatory rooms. A roomy mud room/entry has a convenient ½ bath.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2000

              About the owner: The Neutra Family Retreat property, “Homestead Draw Ranch”, is co-owned by me and my 3 sons. I am a semi-retired biologist and professor/researcher, a lifelong western rider and outdoors-person who has loved Wyoming since childhood, having spent many summers on a ranch in the Tetons and many vacations on Wyoming ranches since. My sons also love the wilderness; one is an engineer and Peace Corps volunteer who formerly worked in the Wind River Reservation schools and wrangled horses for a Dubois outfitter. Our goal was to establish a retreat where we can enjoy this unique and spectacular country together with children, grandchildren and good friends. Because of the busy schedules of our family, the ranch house is unoccupied during many beautiful weeks. Thus we are able to offer it to others who want to experience the best of Wyoming in a comfortable, convenient setting.

              Why the Owner Chose Dubois:
              The Dubois area is unique: it is an unspoiled, friendly western town nestled between 2 mountain ranges, surrounded by millions of acres of pristine National Forest, and within easy reach of Teton and Yellowstone Parks. The nearby Wind River provides many potential fishing spots, and it’s a short drive to many other topnotch trout streams and lakes. Enjoy trout fishing on your own or with local guides. The hiking opportunities in the Wind River Range, the Absaroka mountains, the red rock badlands or the Continental Divide, are endless. Nearby ranches and outfitters provide trail rides and backcountry pack trips. Ancient Indian petro glyphs and fossils are abundant in a valley just 10 miles away. Dubois offers good restaurants, art and gift shops, library and museums. In summer there’s a weekly rodeo, square dancing, and music in the park. Teton Park and Yellowstone are only 1 – 1.5 hours away. At the end of the day, just relax on the ranch house decks to enjoy the wildlife and ever-changing views of mountains, forest and big sky.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              Easy access combined with the privacy of a 294 acre property. Beautiful hikes, right out the door.
