Property description

The Kindness Manor is a large vacation home in a beautiful part of southeast Wyoming. Located high atop a bluff on the edge of the 1,000-acre Kindness Ranch Animal Sanctuary, you’ll enjoy a spectacular forty mile, 360 degree view. Secluded from all other buildings on the property, you can enjoy complete peace and quiet if that is what you wish!

The Kindness Manor is an easy 3.5 hour drive north of Denver, and two hours from Cheyenne or Casper. We’re five miles north of Hartville, a quaint town of less than 70 people and home to Wyoming’s oldest bar.

Staying at the Kindness Manor is a true treat. A striking building, this home has two bedroom wings connected by the open-plan kitchen and living room. Large windows look out upon fabulous views in every direction. With radiant heat and air conditioning throughout, the Kindness Manor is comfortable in all seasons.

The spacious Manor comes complete with everything you’ll need to make you feel at home. The custom-designed master suite includes a curved staircase leading you to a private sitting room, complete with wet bar and a breathtaking view. Three more bedrooms feature comfortable full beds and private bathrooms. Finally, two bunk beds in the kids'/game room give the 3500 sq.f Kindness Manor sleeping space for up to 12 people. All linens, comforters and towels are included.

The open-plan kitchen, dining room, and sunken living room make the Kindness Manor an incredibly desirable retreat. Relax on the wrap-around deck, prepare a hearty meal, enjoy your favorite movies, or anything else you might do at home. The living room includes a modern entertainment center with satellite televisions. You’ll have plenty of space for your entire family - even your dog can join you!

Please contact us regarding corporate retreats, educational trips, weddings, family reunions, or other large gatherings.

It is our desire that people staying at the Kindness Manor experience the beauty and tranquility of southeastern Wyoming and the amazing energy of our rescued animals, and leave with renewed hearts, planning to return again soon.
