Dubois cabin description

Heavenly rendezvous for family, friends, and associates. Cozy, large (~2000 sq ft), all-wood cabin has open floor plan with three private bedrooms, futon, and spacious enclosed gear/mud room. Electric, wood-stove heat. On 60 mostly wooded acres, bordered by vacant parcels and Shoshone National Forest. End of road, partly fenced, no neighbors. Wildflowers riot spring to summer. A dozen road miles from artsy, historic Dubois, a mile from government-maintained road, 3 miles from Western-style restaurants.

Cabin nestles in the SW corner of a large, gently sloped meadow. Cabin meets forest on two sides. Elevation 8500 ft (2600m). The meadow underscores spiritual, panoramic views of Dunoir Valley, Ramshorn, Absarokas, and Painted Hills. Abundant and diverse wildlife, including large and small, furry or feathered. Sap-scented summer breeze keeps site cool/warm comfy night/day, and practically bug-free. Trails for hiking, horses, ATV, or to amble around the woods. Nearby streams and lakes for fishing; camping, outdoor sightseeing of all kinds.

Take a day drive to Yellowstone or Grand Teton National Parks (50 miles to Moran Junction), or to Jackson's swank shops and eateries. Or forget all that and hit the hammock! Fall hunting access, winter snowmobiling with world-class network of maintained trails, National Forest roads to cruise. Snowshoeing, trekking, or toe-toasting near the woodstove.

Cabin was built by a multi-millionaire who owned the mountainside and picked the best spot! Let this memory-maker start your love affair with one of America's premier vacation venues in Wyoming's Wind River Mountains. Owner offers friendly service and rates to help you feel good about returning year after year.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2000

                      About the owner: I lived in many US states and worked as a laboratory researcher until 1994, when I became primary caregiver for two infant daughters and moved to Wyoming. I'm now a 'subsistence educator' and part-time forester. I regularly visit Mountain Shangri-La to savor its splendors, connect with Nature, and grow closer to loved ones.

                      Why the Owner Chose Dubois:
                      During the mid-90s, I visited half a dozen Wyoming communities within a few hours drive from my residence in Rock Springs. Dubois is a jewel that retains its rustic, creative, and individual charms. The surrounding mountains, badlands, and river systems form an irresistible draw. Since then, land and property values have risen sharply, but my place there is buffered by its location and land ownership in the area. This property is the second one I've owned in the Union Pass area.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
                      Lots of places have 'views'. This place offers incomparable 'visual experiences'. A kaleidoscope of rugged peaks, verdant valleys, painted badlands, and monumental swathes of forest presents everchanging perspectives as weather and lighting continually turn the dial to display unique new panoramas. Another benefit is that the property is secluded and private. No nearby neighbors, and no drive through traffic. It is expansive. It borders the Shoshone National Forest, so you can roam forever. Wildlife abounds, with elk, deer, and moose making appearances in the large meadow in front of the cabin, and all manner of song birds and other mammals spending time within sight of the place through much of the year. Finally, the cabin has lots of Western charm and an eclectic library for PC-weary readers who want to savor the vanishing luxury of dozing in a hammock with a book at hand.
