A rustic cabin on Fremont Lake with fireplace, deck, walk to the lake. Great location for mountain biking, sea kayaking, canoeing and taking hikes. Modern furnishings electric stove, fridge, dishwasher, bathroom includes toilet, shower and sink. Log pole bed. Deck has a view of the glacier fed Fremont Lake in the Wind River Mountains. Cabin has a loft upstairs with a queen bed. To sleep 4, a futon is in the living room. The views are incredible and you can watch the sunset over the lake. The night sky is incredible. The elevation is approximately 7800 feet. The stairway to the loft is circular and a bit narrow and steep. This is great place to relax, enjoy the outdoors, read a book and sip a glass of vino on the deck watching the sunset over the lake. You can be active or you can just chill. No internet service except via cell service which is spotty at the cabin. Internet service is available in town at numerous locations for wi-fi including the public library. A very romantic and picturesque setting. The bedroom is upstairs in the loft. A good place to read, write or even paint the view from the deck. If owner's schedule permits, a boat ride on Fremont Lake is possible. You can also rent a pontoon boat from Lakeside Lodge which is 4 miles away. I do want to note that this property is not toddler friendly due to a spiral stairway, decks, etc... please no kids. The cabin sleeps 4 .

Why Ward Wise chose Pinedale
This property has been in the family since 1958. Ward and Natalie have upgraded the property and enjoy spending time with the family at the cabin. The cabin is known as the "Bear Trap", due to the Grizzly Bear trap that is hanging from the beams in the living room. The trap was found after a forest fire by my Grandparents and Dad after a fire swept through the mountains near Fayette lake in the 1940's. The trap was taken to the Forest Service and no owner came forward, so they gave it back.
What makes this Cabin unique
A very rare location on Fremont lake due to the proximity with the lake and the views. There are trails and dirt roads to walk to get some exercise if desired, or walk down to the lake. The dirt road into the cabin is great mountain biking and the location is 20 minutes to the Elkhart Park trailhead for backpacking into the Wind River Mountains. White PIne ski resort has summer activities such as horse back riding, campfire cookouts, and mountain bike trails - 15 minutes away. The cabin is also very quiet and a great place to just relax, read a book, and spend quality time without distractions.
