Dubois cabin description

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.

              Car: Necessary

              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. Guests can bring their own horses and ride directly into the National Forest; a large pasture and shelter are in view from the cabin.

              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 cabin porch and enjoy the wildlife and mountains.

               

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2002

              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. If you want to bring your own horses, they will enjoy a large pasture and shelter. Certified weed-free hay is available.
