Guernsey house description
You are invited to spend a relaxing vacation at our animal sanctuary. The Kindness Manor is a luxury home in a beautiful part of southeast Wyoming. Located high atop a bluff on the edge of the 1,000 acre Kindness Ranch Animal Sanctuary, you’ll enjoy a spectacular forty mile, 360 degree view.
The Kindness Ranch Animal Sanctuary is home to a variety of animals formerly used in research. During your stay you are welcome to spend quality time with our dogs, cats, horses, sheep, pigs and pet rats. Walk a dog or two, play with some cats, brush the horses, and so on. Be careful; you might just fall in love and want to adopt one or more of our four-legged friends! Enjoy watching other animals as well; the Kindness Ranch is home to deer, elk, antelope, a wide variety of birds, and much more. Indeed, the sanctuary is an Eden for all animals.
Just off of State Highway 270, the Kindness Manor is an easy three hour drive north of Denver, an hour and half from Cheyenne or Casper. We’re five miles north of Hartville, a quaint town of 63 people. The nearby town of Guernsey has a municipal airport for your convenience.
Besides visiting the sanctuary animals, people find a lot of other activities. The nearby Guernsey State Park is known for its excellent swimming beaches and a variety of water activities, including skiing. Golfers will enjoy an 9-hole golf course in the nearby town of Guernsey. Take a short hike or visit the historic CCC museum, responsible for many of the park’s structures. Within a short drive of the Kindness Manor there are many interesting historic places to visit, including Fort Laramie (a national historic site), the Register Cliffs, and the Oregon Trail Ruts. Or be adventurous and hike to the top of Laramie Peak.
Staying at the Kindness Manor is a true treat. A striking building, this home is essentially two two-story round houses connected by the kitchen and spacious living room. This unique design allows the utmost in peace and quiet. Large windows look out upon fabulous views in every direction. With radiant heat and air conditioning throughout, the Kindness Manor is comfortable in all seasons.
Built in 2007, the spacious Kindness Manor comes complete with everything you’ll need to make you feel at home. The custom-designed master bedroom includes a curved staircase leading you to a private living room, complete with wet bar and a breathtaking view. The other three bedrooms feature comfortable queen beds. With the two trundle beds in the game room, the 3500 sf Kindness Manor accommodates 8 to 12 people. All linens, comforters and towels are included.
The gourmet kitchen, the sunken living room and the game room make the Kindness Manor an incredibly desirable retreat. Relax on the wrap-around deck, prepare a hearty meal, enjoy your favorite movies, or anything else you might do at home. Modern entertainment centers including three satellite televisions are located throughout the house, and a fully appointed kitchen makes your stay special. You’ll have plenty of space for your entire family, including your dog and even your boat. Sanctuary staff are readily available for housekeeping or maintenance, should a need arise.
Please contact us regarding corporate retreats, educational trips, weddings, family reunions or other large gatherings.
It is our desire that people staying at the Kindness Manor experience the beauty and tranquility of southeastern Wyoming, the amazing energy of our rescued animals, and leave with renewed hearts, planning to return again soon.
