Evanston cabin description

Kingfisher Bend Ranch is situated at elevation 7,600 feet on nearly 1,250 secluded acres in the southwest corner of Wyoming on the north slope of the beautiful Uinta Mountains where some peaks exceed 13,000 feet in height. The Bear River flows through the middle of the ranch providing excellent, private, catch-and-release fly fishing for trout from mid-July through late October.

Open year round, summer activities include horseback riding, fly fishing, kayaking, sand volley ball, pickle ball, basketball, horseshoes, and hiking. Winter activities include snowmobiling, cross country skiing, snow shoeing and sledding at the ranch. This property is all-inclusive and activities are included in your reservation.

Photogenic Scottish Highland cattle are raised on the ranch. They produce grass-fed, lean beef and beautiful hides which we offer for sale.

In season, the ranch is home to a few lucky guests, horses, mule deer, elk, moose, porcupines, cougars, foxes, bobcats, badgers, beavers, coyotes, skunks, raccoons, squirrels, chipmunks, bald eagles, golden eagles, owls, hawks, Canada geese, various ducks, great blue herons, belted kingfishers, sandhill cranes, lazuli buntings, crows, robins, hummingbirds, woodpeckers, swallows, bluebirds, chickadees, and more.

The 1.3 million-acre Wasatch-Cache National Forest is less than five miles from the ranch. It offers wonderful scenic drives, hikes, bike rides, ATV trails, snowmobiling, and a groomed cross-country ski area. Restaurants, bowling, theaters, shopping, and an 18-hole golf course are 20 minutes away in Evanston. Park City and Deer Valley ski and resort areas are just over an hour from the ranch. A lake for water skiing and windsurfing is 20 minutes from the ranch.

The ranch buildings (including a barn) were built in 2001. Each unit has a full kitchen with granite countertops. Guests provide and prepare their meals. Linens are provided. The guest portion (2,100 s.f.) of the Lodge has two full bathrooms and sleeps 12 in four bedrooms (one bedroom with queen bed, one bedroom with two twin beds and two bedrooms each with two bunk beds). The Lodge has a piano; a recreation room with foosball, ping-pong, and satellite TV; a washer and dryer; and an outdoor propane grill. About a five-minute walk from the Lodge are two 900 s.f. Pond Cabins on the edge of a 1.4 acre pond stocked with trout. Each has a full bathroom, two bedrooms, and can sleep four (two in a queen bed and two in two twin beds).

Stays must be at least two nights.

Fair weather activities at the ranch include biking, hiking, horseback riding on trails or in our riding ring, fly fishing on the Bear River or our pond, boating on the pond in kayaks or a rowboat, basketball, volleyball on a sand court, Fisebee golf, pickleball, great outdoor activities for kids, and horseshoes. More than two private miles of the Bear River flow through the ranch. Fishing is catch and release with barbless flies only. A professional fishing guide can be arranged at the guest's expense.

For an additional charge, hunting for elk, deer, and moose on the ranch can be arranged for guests with proper Wyoming licenses and permits. Horseback riding and hunting are not available on Sundays. There is no charge for ranch activities except hunting. Horseback rides are led by the ranch manager. A liability release form must be signed to participate in ranch activities.

                      Year Purchased: 2001

                      About: The ranch is family-owned. It is not a motel. It is a special place with only three units where guests can unwind, escape from city life, find solitude and rejuvenation, have special experiences, enjoy memorable encounters with 'nature', and, at the end of their stay, feel that it was a wonderful vacation.

                      Why Evanston:
                      Peace. Quiet. Tranquility. A great place to stay and play. A quick getaway close to Salt Lake City, Park City and Ogden. We have excellent summer and winter activities including horseback riding, kayaking, snowmobiling, snowshoeing and cross-country skiing to name a few, all included with your reservation. We're located at the base of the Uinta Mountains, where there are over 400 miles of ATV trails and world-class snowmobiling on thousands of acres of National Forest.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
                      Beautiful cabins. Wildlife. Exceptional fly fishing in season. No charge for guided horseback rides. Solitude - near a highway but once you are settled in, you will feel as though the 'world' is many miles away. 1,250 acres creates an excellent world of its own. A broad array of enjoyable activities (and some excellent porches on which to sit and do nothing).
