About the property

Cabin, 4 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Let your Wyoming mountain vacation experience begin in one of the most scenic valleys in Western Wyoming…Star Valley. Our secluded mountain hide-away is the perfect place to stay for your get-away. You will swear you are miles from anywhere in this peaceful cedar cabin but in reality you are a short mile to Highway 89 and minutes to Thayne, Wyoming and Afton, Wyoming. Our four bedroom two bath cabin sits nestled on a hillside overlooking a beautiful and peaceful meadow. From the large picture window in the living room enjoy panoramic views of the meadow as deer, elk and moose wander through. You are just steps away from public access fishing on the Salt River that meanders through the meadow.

Our cabin is comfortably appointed and sure to enhance your vacation. There are two bedrooms upstairs, a Queen sized bed in one room, and a bunk bed with a twin and double bed in the other, as well as a full bathroom with shower and tub combination. The living room has a pellet stove that will take the morning chill out the air. At the end of the day you can relax and play board games, do puzzles or if you want to check in with civilization, watch a little television equipped with the Dish Network. Downstairs you will find two other bedrooms, two twin beds in one and a Queen sized bed in another, as well as a bathroom equipped with a shower. There is also a washer and dryer available for your use.

We are located about an hour south of Jackson, Wyoming and the Grand Teton National Park. If you want to be busy, you will have no trouble filling your days with fishing, hiking, wildlife viewing, river rafting, horseback riding and more. If you are looking for relaxation, you can relax at the cabin enjoying the many birds and wildlife that make Star Valley their home.

Why The Owner chose Thayne

We purchased this cabin in Star Valley, WY because of it's location. We couldn't think of a better place to enjoy our family vacations with lots of outdoor activities. We enjoy hunting, fishing, hiking, wildlife viewing, horseback riding, river rafting and we can find all of that so close to our cabin. And since it is about an hour from Jackson, WY and the Grand Tetons we can enjoy day trips and hikes and other activities so easily.

What makes this cabin unique

Start your morning sitting on the back deck sipping coffee and enjoying the sun coming up over the mountains and watch the occasional deer wander through the aspen trees above the house. While set in a peaceful meadow, the cabin is just one mile from Highway 89 and minutes to Thayne or Afton, WY where you can get your groceries, rent movies, visit the local library for internet access. The cabin is just steps from public access fishing on the Salt River.

Beautiful and Private Cabin

  • 5 of 5

My family of 4 had a great stay at this cabin - we were in WY for the eclipse. We enjoyed watching the cows across the street, playing in the backyard, playing the boardgames in the cabin, and looking at the stars - amazing for stargazing.

One thing to be aware of - two of the four bedrooms are in the basement. They are totally fine but distant from the upstairs bedrooms. One upstairs bedroom has a queen bed, the other has a bunkbed (single over a full).

No Frills Cabin - Beautiful Location

  • 4 of 5

We had a great week stay in Thayne at this cabin. There was plenty of room for our kids to explore. The location is an amazing oasis away from the highway. There was livestock across the road, close public access to the river, great neighbors to run into on walks, games to play at the cabin and song birds to watch and listen to all morning and into the evening. This was a vacation we came home from relaxed and rejuvenated. The cabin is simple, but spacious.
