This comfortable, cozy new Guest House in the Wind River Valley looks out over a pasture to the Absaroka mountains, red rock badlands, and sagebrush hills. The house is clean, charming, pine paneled throughout, comfortably furnished and stocked with staples for cooking.
It has a living/dining room/kitchen area, 2 bedrooms, full bath and laundry room, and can comfortably accommodate 4 guests. It combines privacy with great accessibility. The house is located on 294 spectacular private acres directly adjacent to the Shoshone National Forest and the Wind River Range.
From the front porch there are breathtaking views across the Wind River valley to red rock badlands and high mountain peaks. At the back door is an aspen/pine grove in which historic cabins, once occupied by the first homesteaders in the Wind River valley, still stand.
The house 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. One can walk or drive up the hill ¼ mile to the main ranch house and a private trailhead into the Shoshone National Forest and Warm Springs Canyon, a lovely secluded fishing and picnicking spot (see photo). At the end of the day, relax on the cabin porch to enjoy the ever-changing views of mountains and big sky.

The Ranch is a 1.5 hour drive from Jackson Hole airport, the Tetons and Yellowstone. The property directly abuts the Shoshone National Forest, a vast Wyoming wilderness area, yet it is easily accessible. It is 10 minutes by car to the picturesque, friendly town of Dubois where there are good restaurants, western and Indian arts and crafts, museums, a weekly rodeo, music, and square dancing through the summer season. Adults and children who love the outdoors find lots to do here: The ranch house is a private trailhead into the Wind River Mountains and Warm Springs Canyon, and there are many other hiking opportunities nearby. There is excellent trout fishing in the lakes and rivers of the area, either with local guides or on your own. Nearby ranches and outfitters provide trail rides and backcountry pack trip opportunities. Ancient Indian rock art and fossils can be found in a nearby mountain valley, and the Wind River Indian Reservation is a short drive to the east. Or, one can just relax on the ranch house decks and enjoy the wildlife and mountains. ...morecollapse

WHAT A GREAT AUGUST VACATION, THE GRANDKIDS ARE STILL TALKING ABOUT IT. WE ALL LOVED THIS BEAUTIFUL BUILT PINE CABIN. A WELL EQUIPPED KITCHEN WITH AMPLE DINING AREA,TO THE COMFORTABLES BEDS. THIS CABIN IS A WINNER! EVERYTHING WAS NEAT AND CLEAN. PLENTY OF DRAWER SPACE WITH A NICE DESK AREA IN THE MASTER BEDROOM. EVERYONE'S FAVORITE PLACE WAS THE PORCH, VIEWS ALL DAY AND STARY NITES WERE EXTRAORDINARY. THE CABIN IS JUST MINUTES OFF THE HIGHWAY BUT YET NO SO CLOSE TO ANY OTHER HOMES GIVING PLENTY OF PRIVACY. MARIAN HELPED US SO MUCH WTH HER EXPERT ADVICE OF THE AREA. WE ENDED UP ON INCREDIBLE ROADS AND TRAILS. WE SAW COYOTE, PRONG HORN,MULE DEER AND MORE. MARIAN RECOMMENDED A 4HR. HORSE TRAIL RIDE CLOSE TO THE HOUSE THAT WE'LL NEVER FORGET. MARIAN ALSO INTRODUCED OUR GRANDDAUGHTER TO HER FIRST EXPERIENCE WITH HORSES. THANK YOU MARIAN AND HOPEFULLY WE'LL BE BACK SOME DAY.

Owner response: These active and charming grandparents treated their grandkids to a real Wyoming experience at our ranch. They enjoyed having a comfy, private cabin on our beautiful 294-acre property, and I enjoyed inviting them for drinks and sunset-watching on the main ranch house porch. Our gentle horses gave the grandkids their first horse-handling experience which prepared them for a spectacular trail ride from Chimney Rock stables just down the road.
Homestead Draw is Lovely!

We stayed at the cabin the first two weeks of August...Lovely! Cozy cabin surrounded by ranch land. Easy access from the main road without losing the charm of being out on your own. Marian was a wealth of knowledge of the whole area. We look forward to staying here again it was home away from home!

We stayed for 8 nights at this cozy and clean cabin and enjoyed every minute! The owner was incredibly helpful in orienting us to the area and shared maps and advice on hiking, fishing and local attractions. The views are amazing from the cabin! There was so much to do in the surrounding area that we could have easily stayed longer. The Cowboy Cafe in Dubois is great for breakfast and yummy pies. In all, it was a perfect vacation and I highly recommend a stay in this cabin.

Sorry! Didn't mean to scare anyone by mentioning spiders. There were NO spiders inside and there were only 2, minding their own business, and way out of reach! Do not stay away from renting this wonderful place, we would rent again and again in a heart beat!

Owner response: These guests did indeed have a wonderful time at our ranch and they tell me that they are hoping to return. All of our guests have commented on the comfort and cleanliness of this cabin and the larger ranch house on our Dubois property. The wildlife most likely to be seen are the mule deer and in early summer, the elk. There is a grove of trees with a small spring near the cabin, a protected spot where mother deer and elk often bring their babies. It's delightful tp watch them from the window!
This was an excellent location for our vacation. The owner was very helpful and thorough with all questions and any instructions for our stay. The mountain views were spectacular and after it snowed (which was a little surprise for us) the views were even more pretty. We would definitely recommend this location/property to others. Paya's had great pizza as mentioned from the owner and Rustic Pine Tavern is the place to talk to locals and have a couple drinks during happy hour. We really enjoyed "hunting" for the petroglyphs - that was a lot of fun and almost missed them. Quite amazing to see! The cabin was clean and well maintained, didn't like the BIG spiders on the outside so well - but interesting to watch. Beautiful drives to the nearby Grand Teton and Yellowstone Parks! Saw lots of moose, deer and antelopes and of course horses! Overall wonderful experience and would like to return to further explore the area. Thanks to the Neutra family for sharing your home.

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 cabin 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:
Dubois 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. Enjoy trout fishing on your own or with local guides. The nearby Wind River provides many potential fishing spots, and it’s a short drive to many other topnotch trout streams and lakes. The hiking opportunities in the Wind River Range, the Absaroka mountains, the red rock badlands or the Continental Divide, are endless. An excellent riding facility (one mile from the cabin) offers expert western or English riding instruction, and nearby ranches and outfitters provide trail rides and backcountry pack trips. Ancient Indian petroglyphs and fossils are abundant in a valley just 10 miles away, and the vast Wind River Reservation (Shoshone and Arapaho) begins 20 miles to the east. Dubois offers several 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.
The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
The cabin is on a 294-acre ranch abutting Shoshone National Forest, but less than a mile from the highway. It combines privacy and great views with easy access and lots of places to roam, right out the door.
