Why Theresa Williams chose Laramie
Laramie is our favorite town in Wyoming. It is close to mountains and lakes and has a variety of cultural activities. Laramie is also a reasonable distance from Denver for access to an international airport and other big city amenities. We plan to retire to Ames Place. The first time we walked into this house we felt like it was home.
What makes this House unique
We fell in love with this house because it is on the edge of town, near open space and has a simple, one-level lay-out and eco-friendly design. We love the earth-bermed style because it stays cool in the summer and warm in the winter. We like the large, south-facing windows that let in light and warm the house. We are especially impressed with the quiet neighborhood.

Nice House - Nice location
We wanted to spend some time in Laramie area to hike, bike, and fish. We also wanted to be able to bring our 2 dogs with us - so this place worked out perfectly for us. The house itself is quite large. 3 BR and 2 full baths. The style is probably a little out dated and could eventually use a refresh … but the house was very clean, beds comfortable, plenty of towels etc. Access to washer and dryer was a plus. Big, nearly empty, 2-car garage; we parked car in the garage and used the other side to store bikes. House backs to a paved walking path with large fields to run the dogs, plus there is a small dog run attached to the front of the house. Laramie is not a big town, so the house is close to everything. Great communication with Theresa beforehand and for check in/out. My only critical comment would be one I'd echo from other reviews. While were an ample supply of dishes, glasses/cups, utensils, and kitchen gadgets … there were very few pots and pans. There was one large frying pan and 2 small sauce pans and no others which made preparing some of the meals we had planned a bit challenging. Would be nice to have a little larger assortment … nothing fancy or expensive. Perhaps a smaller frying pan and a larger pot or two (something to cook pasta in for example.)
Thank you for your review. I'll add more pots and pans. The stock pot and egg pan must have wandered off a few guests ago. Sorry for the inconvenience.
Great location, quiet, and clean. Very accessible owner. Everything went well.
Very convenient. Nice alternative to a hotel. Easy to book, check in and checkout. Awesome paved trail behind the house. Beautiful views!
This house was a great place to stay for our family. It was very comfortable and had everything needed to settle in for a few days. Our dogs enjoyed the small yard and the great trail behind the house. Very close to UW.
Worked great for our needs
Clean, conveniently located house just a couple of miles from the action in Laramie. We were there for a wedding with a number of extended family members and this was far more comfortable and affordable than a hotel on a holiday weekend. Theresa was an attentive host - she scheduled an in-person check-in and gave clear instructions related to our stay. My only suggestion for improvement is as follows: the house is very minimally stocked with items such as cookware & dishware.
Very clean, cozy and comfortable. Not far at all to the stadium which made it very convenient.
There are many historic buildings and museums in the city of Laramie. The Ivinson Mansion and gift shop are close to downtown and have beautiful flower gardens throughout the summer. The Geology Museum is located on the University of Wyoming campus as is the American Heritage Center and the Art Museum. The Chamber of Commerce provides brochures for a downtown walking tour of historic houses and buildings. The Wyoming Territorial Prison, located west of the Laramie River, has been restored and is open to the public. The Prison hosts a haunted house every year during the Halloween season.
Laramie has a green belt along the Laramie River that is a pleasant place to walk, run or bike. The Green Belt extends both north and south from a convenient parking area at Optimist Park. There are many opportunities for viewing wildlife along this path.
The Laramie Valley is located between the Snowy Range to the west and the Laramie Range to the east. About 20 minutes east of Laramie is Veedauwoo, a beautiful rock climbing, bouldering, hiking and picnic spot. The old Happy Jack ski area is about 15 minutes east and provides great cross-country skiing, sledding, snowshoeing, mountain biking and hiking (turn off I-80 at the Lincoln Monument exit and go left).
There are many lakes in the high plains of the Laramie Valley that are good fishing, kayaking and boating destinations. We spent last summer kayaking in a different lake each week. The water is generally too cold for swimming or water skiing, but some brave souls do take a dip during the hottest parts of summer.
To the west, the Snowy Range provides opportunities for downhill and cross-country skiing, hiking, mountain biking, kayaking, boating, fishing and snowmobiling. At the base of the mountains you'll find Centennial and Woods Landing. Centennial is a rustic town with restaurants, bars, a gas station, and gift shops about 30 miles from Laramie on highway 130. Farther up 130 is the Snowy Range Ski Area. In the summer, highway 130 is a scenic byway that will take you to Saratoga, Wyoming where you can soak in a natural hot spring free to the public.
Woods Landing rests just off of highway 230 about 25 miles from Laramie. Woods Landing has a gas station, convenience store, restaurant and historic bar and dance hall. There are two public fishing access points to the Laramie River close to Woods Landing. Farther up highway 230 is Chimney Park with groomed trails for cross-country skiing in the winter and a boy scout camp in the summer. There are many opportunities for outdoor fun throughout these mountains.
