About Liz Howell

I'm now retired as Exec Director and founder of the Wyoming Wilderness Association. I grew up in Denver, CO. I am now a practicing painter, birder, hiker and traveler as well as a landlady! My M.F.A. degree is from the University of Washington.

Liz Howell purchased this house in 2001

Why Liz Howell chose Big Horn National Forest

I wanted to provide a homey and arty experience for the travelers while visiting Sheridan. This updated 1910 house has a wonderful history and lots of privacy in a quiet neighborhood with lovely big yard and gardens. I live in the other half, closed off by curtains and french doors. Full kitchen is well-equipped. New WiFi TV and A/C unit installed in 2017.

What makes this house unique

I love Wyoming for its wildness. The Bighorn Mountains are only an hour away for fishing, hiking and camping. Sheridan is a super friendly town, small yet highly cultured. The WYO Theater brings wonderful events, musical, theatric and vital. The hiking/walking paths and parks in Sheridan are well developed. The Howell Hotel is located just 5 blocks from downtown restaurants, bars and shopping, and the very special SAGE Community Art Gallery. In the summer, Sheridan boasts a Farmers market every Thursday and the Third Thursday of every month is a great street festival with music, food and booths.

Rustic feel with tons of charm. A great way to experience Sheridan, WY.

  • 5 of 5

My family had a wonderful stay at the property. We were all there to ride the MS 150 and were able to enjoy the comforts this property offered when we weren't on bicycles peddaling through Sheridan and surrounding communities. I would recommend this property to travelers as it feels like it is a piece of history and has a lot of personality.

Quiet home in a convenient location

  • 5 of 5

My mom, sister, and I met in Sheridan and enjoyed a few days reconnecting. Liz' home was a great spot to do just that. It is just a few blocks from downtown, so we only drove when we were visiting sites outside of Sheridan. The space was plenty for the three of us and we thoroughly enjoyed being able to play games in the evenings and take strolls through the nearby neighborhoods to see the older homes and frequent wildlife.

Quiet and homey

The house was clean and comfortable and eclectically decorated - something new to see every time you walked into a room! Very quiet neighborhood that was close to downtown. Very enjoyable.

Great little home in a great little town

  • 5 of 5

I was in town with my wife and 2 young kids for 4 days. Adorable little home. Location of this home was perfect for the family. Restaurants, parks just blocks away. The layout was great too as it offered ample room for the family. Most surprising was how cool the home stayed during the day with temps hitting the 90s during our stay. Not once did we use the A/C and we were all extremely comfortable.

Most importantly though, Liz was a gracious host and went above and beyond to ensure we were comfortable. My family and I are already missing all that was offered in such a lovely little town! We can't wait to come back.
