Property description

The two-bedroom, one bath, ‘Deer Haven Cottage’ is a darling, ranch style house built in the early 1940’s. It has been completely renovated top to bottom in 2013 and ‘modernized’ for today’s lifestyle. It is perfect for a small family, individuals traveling together or even a business traveler who desires more space and the conveniences of 'home'. The cottage is tastefully decorated with ‘urban’ sophistication, mixed with a little country/western and a few antiques. It has a spacious, fully equipped, dine-in kitchen complete with all new appliances in 2013. The full bathroom has all new fixtures and there is new lighting and flooring throughout the cottage.

The master bedroom has a king sized bed, night tables with lamps on each side, a dresser and a closet. It has large windows making it bright and airy but shades and drapes to darken it if you want to sleep in. The second bedroom has a double bed, a dresser and a large recessed area for storage and hanging clothes. Both bedrooms have alarm clocks with USB ports for mobile phones or other devices.

The living room is a great place to relax in front of the 32” flat screen, HDTV. There is also a DVD player for watching your favorite movies after a long day of sight-seeing. The sofa is a sleeper and can accommodate two more guests. Between the living room and kitchen is a beverage bar that you can ‘belly up’ to, complete with 2 bar stools.

Outside is a nicely landscaped, fenced yard with lawn chairs, a fire pit for roasting marshmallows, charcoal grill and picnic table. A great space for you and the kids to unwind and grill up some fresh caught trout or local beef steaks for dinner and… just as the name implies, you can definitely expect a few deer to meander in for a visit at sundown :)

Occupancy limited to 6 persons.
2 Night minimum.
This is a non-smoking property. There is no smoking allowed anywhere on the premises.
No pets allowed.
Check-in time- 4 p.m.
Check-out time- 11 a.m.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: It is now 2015 and a lot has happened in the 14 years that we have been in the vacation rental business. We are 14 years older and "wiser". Two sons-in-law, a daughter-in-law and 9 grandchildren have been added to our family along with much joy to our lives. We have added and renovated 3 more properties since the spring of 2012, always working really hard at upgrading and improving a vintage 1936, three- bedroom bungalow; an early 1940’s two-bedroom cottage and a darling, early 1900’s one-bedroom. It has truly been a labor of love, because it’s exhausting work and at times we were asking ourselves “what have we gotten ourselves into?” We have weathered the stress of the initial major renovation and now we can stand back and admire the accomplishment. We even received the ‘Pride Award’ from the City of Cody for our beautification of these properties. We have really enjoyed renovating these three vintage houses to make them beautiful and comfortable “homes” for our guests...and mentioning our guests, the best part of this business is the hundreds of wonderful people we have met from all over the world. It just gets better and better and we look forward to many more years. We love sharing information about this incredible place we love and call home. We enjoy helping to make your trip to Cody, Wyoming, Yellowstone and surrounding areas, an enjoyable and exciting experience. A trip we know you will cherish and have fond memories of, for many years to come. ... Til we meet again, Dan and Kim Brice

Why the Owner Chose Cody, WY, USA:
This property had been vacant for many years and everyday we would drive by and hope that someday soon, the darling little bungalow on the corner would have an owner that would love it and bring it back to life. In 2012, we were given that very opportunity by a chance meeting and we were thrilled to be the proud owners of this darling bungalow and taking on the challenge of restoring it to its former charm.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Minutes outside Cody, there are miles and miles of scenic grandeur as far as you can see. Wild mustangs and antelope still roam free across the prairie. Moose, bear, bison, wolves, mountain lions, Big Horn sheep, mountain goats, just to name a few, are visible in the forests, marsh and on the majestic mountain tops. Native Trout and other fish species are abundant in the pristine waters of rivers, lakes and streams that are so much a part of this vast, incredibly beautiful landscape that is Wyoming. Fifty-three miles to the west of Cody is the world’s first national park, Yellowstone. Established in 1872, no place on earth compares to the splendor and mystery of this natural bounty with parts still waiting to be discovered. The awe and wonder of Yellowstone attracted early explorers and now modern day explorers, scientists, nature seekers, as well as inspiring writers, artists and photographers from all over the globe. Every direction you choose to travel from Cody is pure delight. There is discovery and a feast for the eyes around every turn and down every stretch of road. When you decide to visit and experience the traditions of the old west and see with your own eyes what drew settlers here from long distances, you will not leave here the same. The memories of this unforgettable place will stay with you forever and you will yearn to return someday.
