About the Property
1 bedroom historic home fully remodeled with modern amenities
This Victorian-era guest house is a clean modern 700 sf. home located in Laramie, Wyoming. Only three blocks from downtown Laramie and twelve blocks from the University of Wyoming, it is in the perfect location if you like to walk or bike around town. Off-street parking, a private deck with a gas grill and patio furnishings, and a fully-fenced landscaped yard provide private, secure outdoor spaces. Guest bikes, a Forest Service parking pass, and lots of maps and trail information will help you make good use of all that Laramie has to offer. Cable TV and internet services are the best available.
The kitchen is fully equipped for everything from cooking a great meal to just making a great cup of coffee. Appliances include a gas range and oven, full-sized fridge, and microwave plus butcher block counter tops, and all the cookware, dishes, and utensils you might need.
The front, and most unique, room in the house has a Brazilian Koa wood floor with five windows surrounding a bright, cozy reading nook.
The bedroom floors are a mixture of Cherry and Hickory. There is a comfortable queen-sized bed. All bedding and linens are provided.
All of downtown is just a few blocks away. Walk to breakfast at Night Heron Bookstore (and peruse the fantastic selection of used books while you're at it) or Coal Creek Coffee. Numerous lunch, dinner, and drinking establishments are all within a few blocks of the guest house.
This is a green-renovated house that used as much of the original material as possible -- preserving the character and uniqueness of the house.
Flat screen TV with DVD and free WiFi make this guest house ideal for business travelers. Children are welcome.
Please call or email with any questions you may have about the house or Laramie and the surrounding area.
All the best,
Amy and Ranie

Year Purchased: 2005
Why the Owner Chose Laramie, WY, USA:
When we bought this house it's Victorian-style trim and front porch gave us a vision it's potential. Renovating small, old, unmaintained houses into modern, livable spaces is our passion and this little shogun house was just calling out for a new lease on life.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
When we purchased 807 S 2nd Street it was in rough shape. Originally built in the 1880s to house Union Pacific railroad workers, the house had fallen into disrepair. We renovated it ourselves--from the roof to the foundation--keeping the character of an old shotgun rail house while adding modern amenities and giving the house a second life as a comfortable space to enjoy Laramie's south side.
