Nice home in beautiful, remote location. Close to hiking, flyfishing, restaurants, town...
My family stayed here for the full month of April, 2013. We loved it, and I could not think of anything more perfect in this price range. The house is clean and well-appointed (including Dish Network with a programmable DVR). Perfect for two couples, or for one couple with children. The house was well-stocked with basic supplies (toilet paper, cleaners, detergent, spices for cooking, coffee filters, paper towels, etc.) The Absaroka Mountains are beautiful viewed straight out the living room windows, or from the sunroom. Deer appeared outside our window daily, plus there were a few large hares and some big magpies that also made regular showings. Although April has unpredictable weather, we were always able to get into town, even after a hard snow. We drove to Jackson Hole many times, too (passing moose, bison, and elk). Jackson is only 90 minutes away, though you have to go over a mountain pass at 9,500 feet to get there. I estimate Dunoir Valley Retreat is about 7,000 feet over sea level. The south gate of Yellowstone is also 90 minutes away, though it was closed in April. The town of Dubois (Doo-boyz) is only ten minutes away with basic stores and restaurants (my favorite dish was the Thai Beef Stir-Fry at the Nostalgia Bistro). Also, there is a winter resort called Crooked Creek that is almost across the street, but then 7 miles up a mountain. The road was muddy (April), but we enjoyed the restaurant and bar there. Dubois is considered one of America's top ten cowboy towns. (Cattle appears to be the main industry.) The Wind River is very close to this house with some public access areas for fishing. (I also got guided flyfishing from Marlow's Fly Shop in town. Those guys put you right on the fish.) There were some great back roads that took you into the "badlands", where we would hike up big hills or in canyons, but never too far from the car. The house has a garage, but my full sized SUV would not fit completely.

A true taste of Wyoming
A true taste of Wyoming
I use VRBO all the time and this place was magnificent! The feeling was of old Wyoming. The views of the mountains (from the living room and sun room) were breathtaking and the living room was large, comfortable and gave the feeling of being out west. You could see rabbits and horses from the house and cattle were in the distance. The way the house lay gave you absolute privacy and quiet, but you could get to the road easily. The area is great and diverse for hiking and wildlife viewing. The hiking was much different driving west to Togwotee Pass than driving east to the Torrey Lake area (I saw a herd of goats there.) Both beautiful in their own way There was a regular herd of pronghorn antelopes halfway between town and the the house. You were guaranteed to see herds of deer on Horse Creek Road. The town had some good restaurants. The place was clean and well maintained. The owner was very friendly and helpful. I plan on staying there again and would highly recommend it!

My husband and I recently took our parents on a trip to Yellowstone. We planned it as a "Christmas in July" mystery trip. We reside in Wyoming and decided at the last minute to break up the drive with an evening in Dubois. As luck would have it Dunoir Valley Retreat had a last minute cancellation and they were happy to accommodate our group. The location was spectacular! This property is absolutely immaculate. We couldn't have been more comfortable in a 5 star retreat. Everything was just wonderful and so very comfortable. We've put Dunoir Valley Retreat on our list of repeat locations.

GUEST REVIEW POSTED BY OWNER 07/07/12
"6/10 – 7/7 2012 For four weeks the Dunoir Valley Retreat has been our home, and we have been happy here! The house is beautifully situated in the valley, with great views from every window. It is full of light and very, very comfortable! It’s a long way to Yellowstone and The Grand Teton, but these parks are worth the drive: they’re everything you expect them to be. Our favorite spot, a stretch of the Snake River near the Oxbow Bend is only 50 minutes away. We also loved the Antilope Flats and the Moose-Wilson Road and of course the National Museum of Wildlife Art! A very pleasant surprise was the discovery of what the Dunoir Valley itself has to offer: beautiful scenery (I love the “badlands”), wildlife in abundance, and a friendly town only 10 mi away (the Friday night rodeo is a must!). On the property of the house we saw: a moose with 2 calves, white-tailed deer, chipmunks, ground squirrels, mountain bluebird, tree swallow, mourning dove, white- crowned sparrow, robin, brewer’s blackbird, northern flicker… Five minutes away, along Union Pass we found a great horned owl with two young ones, ready to fly the nest. In Dubois, along Horse Creek Rd: coyote, mule deer, bald eagle, osprey, red-tailed hawk, turkey vulture, yellow warbler, cowbird… Along Hwy 26 : moose, elk, deer, even a grizzly bear with two cubs, coming out of Shoshone National Forest! It’s sounds unbelievable, but we were lucky enough to see (and photograph) them twice!!! We enjoyed the hot, dry weather – but we were sorry to hear about the wildfires… We are sad to have to leave this house and the Valley. We have been happy here….

This was the best vacation of our lives! We saw elk, moose, mule deer, bear, bison, big horn sheep, and praire dogs in the Dubois area. We saw the first three on the property. The property was even better than described in the ad, we were very pleased! It has a wonderful view, great surroundings, comfortable, clean and roomy home away from home. Troy was very gracious and helpful too. We were well taken care of! We would recommend this place to anyone looking for solitude and beauty, yet close to the highway too. Very accessable, yet very private! Also Dubois and it's back roads takes you to ennumerable mountain ranges and valley's and wildlife, even badlands. Great opportunity for photos, hiking, and biking.

My wife and I had the privilege of being the first guests in this home.We loved our stay here. Even though the home is located close in proximity to the road, you cant hardly see it from the road, so its surprisingly private. The back door views of Ramshorn Peak were beautiful every day. The large windows in the Great room made the views easy from inside. Also, being able to sip coffee in the heated sunroom while was a treat too.The fully equpped kitchen mad cooking easy since we were located a few miles out of town. Instead of sleeping late every morning like most vacationers would, we found ourselves rising early almost every morning to raise the blinds on those big windows and catch the sunrise! It's relatively close in proximity to Togwatee pass and Jackson Lake making this home an affordable alternative to the more expensive places in Jackson and Yellowstone area. All in all, we had a blast thx to the Sullivan family who were just a phone call away if we needed anything. 2 thumbs up for this home!!!...We'll be back!!!
