About the Property
Wilderness cabin at Brooks Lake - reserve your week now - limited availability
2 BR/1 BA + enclosed bunk room/sun porch.....Original cabin built by the Scandinavian Tiehacks in the early 1940's during the timber/logging operations for the early railroads. It is one of the few in the area with indoor plumbing and electricity (the original outhouse is still outside). It has been updated with modern conveniences and all the comforts of home. The kitchen still has the original cast iron/wood cookstove (along with a newer gas stove for your convenience). The river rock fireplace in the center of the cabin was built with local materials and even has a piece of petrified wood. The large deck is perfect for grilling fresh caught trout in the stream that runs along the side of the cabin or 2 miles up the road in Brooks Lake. There are 2 queen bedrooms, a sun porch with 2 twins and a double sleeper sofa in the den to accommodate up to 8. Enjoy wildlife sightings - not a day goes by that we don't see moose, elk, deer or a bear. Enjoy s'mores around the campfire by the stream (but make sure to douse it with buckets of water before retiring for the evening). The cabin is located inside the Shoshone National Forest (the nation's 1st national forest) so grab your trail maps and explore the hundreds of miles of trails by foot, XC skis, snowshoe, atv, snowmobile or auto. Always carry your fishing rod/tackle when you can as there are hundreds of hidden mountain lakes just waiting for you to wet your hook. Firewood is stacked for your use (try your hand at rustic living by splitting more to replace what you use.....many thanks!) This cabin is only available a few weeks each year as allowed by the National Forest Regulations, so inquire early and be one of the select few to enjoy it!!

Year Purchased: 2011
About the owner: We are an adventure loving family from Georgia who fell in love with the great state of Wyoming in 2006. After repeated trips out each year we stumbled upon this little gem tucked away in the Shoshone National Forest. We vacationed here for a few years and fell in love with the town of Dubois. We relocated from Georgia in May 2015 so that we can enjoy the beauty of the area year round. We hope you enjoy the rest and relaxation as much as we do! If so, I'd be happy to help you find your own little slice of Heaven: Ree Beavers, owner/broker, Wind River Property Group, LLC. 307.455.4100 or cell, 678.300.5876
Why the Owner Chose Dubois, WY, USA:
This cabin is so secluded. The peace and quiet is perfect for those wanting to get away from it all - to forget about the cares of the world for the days that you are here. I like to grab my groceries in Jackson (or Lander if flying in by way of Denver) and then stay for the week without leaving :) However, the cabin is perfectly located for day trips to Jackson, Yellowstone or Grand Teton National Park. It is also only 20 miles from the quaint western town of Dubois (voted one of the best towns to raise a family). The Friday night rodeo is a must during the summer months and the petroglyphs carved into the cliffs/boulders just east of town by the Sheep Eater Indians thousands of years ago makes for a fun day of exploration by kids and history buffs alike. Located right at the edge of the Wind River Indian Reservation a casino is a local attraction for those who think they have a little luck :)
The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
Original historic cabin located on a trout stream in the middle of the Shoshone National Forest (very few cabins or homes are located inside the National Forest). The cabin has authentic western charm (not a shiny, new 'kit' log home) but with the modern conveniences of DirecTV, unlimited local/long distance phone service, a booster for Verizon cell phone users and WiFi for those that have to do a little work while hibernating.
