About the property

Cabin, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 9)

This Beautiful 2,000 s/f log home sits on three sprawling acres along the rushing Wind River in the Historic cowboy town of Dubois, Wyoming( Buffalo Bill and Butch Cassidy visited here). The cabin was built by one of the West's foremost log home builders,and is a work of art in itself.It is tastefully furnished in a western theme and has all modern appliances and amenities, and comfortably sleeps 9. There are amazing views of the river and mountains from every room. The area is also a nature lover’s paradise and is home to many species of wildlife – moose, elk, deer, bear and the largest herd of bighorn sheep in the world. And don’t forget your fishing rod because there is blue-ribbon trout fishing just steps from your door . Not far away are numerous trails to hike ,climb and mountain bike in some of the most beautiful country in the United States, ( the continental divide is 25 miles away),not to mention Grand Teton park, Yellowstone,and Jackson Hole for shopping, white water rafting and skiing.

You'll need weeks,not days,to see even half of the beauty of this area,and this Cabin makes the perfect jumping off point. Enjoy!

The home has a large open living area with vaulted ceilings and a cozy soapstone wood stove for cool evenings. There is a large satellite TV in the living area as well as a DVD. Wireless Internet & private phone are also available.

For spillover guests, the living area has Western style bunk beds & another single bed.

The open & spacious eat-in kitchen boasts Italian tile floors & marble countertops with an island.

The tastefully decorated Master Bedroom is located on the lower level. The bedroom has a queen bed as well as a bassinet/crib for young guests. Next to the master bedroom is a bath with a claw foot tub.

The upper level of the home has two large bedrooms with queen beds and both rooms have balconies to take in the stunning views. A bath between the bedrooms also has a brand new, very nice, American Indian, all tile, walk in shower.

Guests can enjoy the 8 person hot tub on the wrap-around deck, which looks out over the river, or just enjoy the beauty of the setting while relaxing on the deck’s outdoor furniture.

There are many recreational pursuits in the area for guests including horseback riding, hiking, atving, fly-fishing & hunting. In the winter, guests can enjoy cross-county skiing, snowmobiling, dog-sledding & world-class downhill skiing in nearby Jackson Hole.

The entrances to Grand Teton National Park & Yellowstone National Park are only 50 miles away. The Dubois area makes a nice base-camp to these magnificent parks.

So come enjoy a relaxing vacation at “Cabin on the River Bend”. It will be a vacation that you will never forget!

About Brett Jones

We love this place so much and take great pride in it,and always try our best to make sure our guest have a wonderful stay.

Brett Jones purchased this cabin in 2006

Why Brett Jones chose Wyoming

The west is such a vast and beautiful place and there is so much to see that no one place can be the "perfect place",but this one comes as close as one could hope for.

Nestled between the Grand Tetons,The Whiskey Mountains,and the Fitzgerald National Forest,this log home is a nature lover's dream. There's Fishing,>Hiking,>Mountain Biking> White Water Rafting, >Kayaking,> Skiing>Elk and large game hunting,> Snowmobiling, and a thousand ways to enjoy nature. It's also within striking distance of Yellowstone and the National parks,including Old faithful if you've never visited.For shopping and skiing there Jackson hole nearby and you're only 75 miles and one of the most beautiful drives in america from the Jackson Hole airport.(JAC)

What makes this cabin unique

Lovely cabin by the river

  • 4 of 5

Stayed here for a week to watch the eclipse and tour the area. The home is quite nice, with traditional western decor (and some impressive animal trophy heads!). Open plan, and comfortable furniture. The river is very close, and you can walk down to it easily. It is also easy to walk into town.

The cabin isn't isolated, as it sits between a motel and a tipi camping ground, but its orientation towards the river generally limits one's awareness of this.

My only issues were with glare, both from the close-by road (headlights in the bedrooms at night) and the sun (the house has very few window coverings and the sun is intense at this elevation). During the day one can sit on the side of the house on the wraparound porch to escape the sun, but there were no sun or wind breaks on the main deck overlooking the river which limited its daytime use.

Though the description identifies two bathrooms, be aware that there is only one real shower in the house; the master bedroom only has a tub with a handheld spray and no curtain.
