Property description

Heavenly rendezvous for family, friends, and associates. Cozy, large (~1900 sq ft), all-wood cabin has open floor plan with three private bedrooms, futon, and spacious enclosed gear/mud room. Wood-stove and electric heat. On 60 mostly wooded acres, bordered by vacant parcels and Shoshone National Forest. End of road, partly fenced, no close neighbors. Wildflowers riot spring to summer. A dozen road miles from artsy, historic Dubois, a mile from government-maintained road, 3 miles from Western-style restaurants.

Cabin nestles in the SW corner of a large, gently sloped meadow. Cabin meets forest on two sides. Elevation 8500 ft (2600m). The meadow opens onto panoramic views of Dunoir Valley, Ramshorn, Absarokas, and Painted Hills. Abundant and diverse wildlife, including large and small, furry or feathered. Sap-scented summer breeze keeps site cool/warm comfy night/day, and practically bug-free. Trails for hiking, horses, ATV, or to amble around the woods. Nearby streams and lakes for fishing; camping, outdoor sightseeing of all kinds.

Take a day drive to Yellowstone or Grand Teton National Parks (50 miles to Moran Junction), or to Jackson's swank shops and eateries. Or forget all that and hit the hammock! Fall hunting access, with world-class trails and National Forest roads to cruise. Amble, trek, explore, synch with nature, and warm your toes by the woodstove.

Cabin was built by a multi-millionaire who owned the mountainside and picked the best spot! Let this memory-maker start your love affair with one of America's premier vacation venues in Wyoming's Wind River Mountains. Owner offers friendly service and rates to help you feel good about returning year after year.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2000

About the owner: I've lived in many US states working in research until I became primary caregiver for two infant daughters and moved to Wyoming in the '90s. After periods teaching secondary level science and operating a custom forestry business, I retired and moved to France to reunite with my chère amie from college days. These days I regularly visit Mountain Shangri-La to savor its splendors, connect with Nature, and grow closer to loved ones.

Why the Owner Chose Dubois, WY, USA:
Before buying Mountain Shangri-La, I visited half a dozen Wyoming communities within a few hours drive from my home in Rock Springs. Dubois had it all. It's a jewel with rustic, creative, and natural charm. The area's mountains, badlands, and river systems are irresistible. Since then, land and property values have risen sharply, but my place there is buffered by its location and land ownership in the area.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
Please see reviewer comments--this place offers incomparable views. Enjoy a kaleidoscope of rugged peaks, verdant valleys, painted badlands, and monumental swathes of forest with everchanging perspectives as weather and lighting turn the dial to show new, unique panoramas. The property is secluded and private--no drive-by traffic--and with ~60 acres and bordering Shoshone National Forest, it's expansive. You can roam forever. Wildlife abounds, with elk, deer, and moose making appearances in the large meadow in front of the cabin, and all manner of song birds and other mammals spending time within sight of the place through much of the year. The cabin has lots of classic Western charm and an eclectic library for PC-weary readers who want to savor the vanishing luxury of dozing in a hammock with a book at hand.
