Our elegant, 6 bedroom Vacation House is located on a 300-acre, active cattle ranch. The 1000 foot tall mountain behind the house sits on 45,000 acres of BLM land. The main view is a 180-degree view of the 7,500 foot-tall, west-face of the Big Horn Mountains (a 3,500 foot rise above the valley and only 4 miles away). 10,000 foot tall peaks can be seen behind the front ridge. The house is surrounded by a working cattle ranch with a barn, fields, cattle, and another home (400 yards away, occupied by a family so you don't feel totally alone.) The house is fabulous for family gatherings and small retreats.
Rates included on this site are for 6 bedrooms, but may be prorated for smaller groups needing either 4 or 5 bedrooms. Spring, Fall and Winter rates are lower.

The first floor provides kitchen, dining, and living space along with the standard Master Suite with King-size bed, jetted bath and shower. The second floor offers a sitting room and three bedrooms (one with King-size bed and private bath; the other two bedrooms offer twin beds, 2 in each, and a shared bath). The basement provides a large Bedroom with 2 Queen-size beds with a bathroom suite (separated shower, toilet, and sink areas) and a second bedroom with 2 Twin-sized beds and bath.

- Shell Valley and Wyoming are the West as it is imagined to be; it is quiet, wide open and far away. Yet offers comforts and activities that a pioneer couldn't imagine. It is a wildlife and birder - and thus photographer's paradise. The Big Horn Mountain, the Big Horn Canyon NRA and the archeological sites are national treasures that are overlooked by commercial America. ...moreless

For details about our prorated prices and more information about the house and Shelll Valley.
Shell Valley and the Big Horn mountains are fabulous for family and outdoor activities, lincluding off-road adventure (local rentals are available), hiking, fishing, and hunting. A short drive from the house, you'll find archeological and geological sites, waterfalls, hiking, off-road adventures, wildflowers and spectacular scenery that is excellent for photographers This is the West as pioneers saw it, but with comforts they never dreamed possible. Take a day to visit Yellowstone National Park via Chief Joseph's Trail which gives you the scenery of the park long before you enter it. You can visit the Red Gulch Dinosaur track site, hike to the Medicine Wheel, or fish in the clear waters of Shell Creek. An active dinosaur dig - during June and July - is just 2 miles from the house. Visiting Jim at his site is a must-do for school age kids.

Year Purchased: 2006
About the owner: John, a dermatologist and Karen, a real estate property manager, love golf and travel whenever and where ever possible, having visited most of Canada, the US, and parts of Europe and Africa - Karen jokes that she was born with a passport in her hip pocket. As such, they understand the delight, joy, and enduring memories that an intrepid traveler savors long after returning home from a vacation spent in a quiet and secluded retreat.
Why the Owner Chose Greybull, WY, USA:
On a whim, two Southerners, who weren't known for being big outdoors folk, decided to try their hand at horseback riding and chose the Big Horn Mountains because her parents, who were both born into multi-generation Minnesota families, had described the mountains as one of America's understated-but-grand treasures. That first vacation led to a second, and before they knew it, the beauty and quiet of Shell Valley, nestled against the rocky western face of the mountains, had grabbed their hearts and wouldn't let go. And now it is their pleasure to share it with you.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
The quiet and solitude of the ranch grabs your soul while the 180-degree view of the Big Horn Mountains revives your spirit. A day spent with friends hiking, hunting, fishing, or traveling to Yellowstone nourishes friendships while the friendly and down-to-earth community of Shell welcomes you. Cares wander downstream with the cold, clear water of Beaver Creek while the chirping of birds and the lowing of cattle drowns out worry. Come, discover how 'quiet' feels.
