About Glenna Hopper

I grew up here and helped build the house which started as a remodel of our horse barn and expanded from there. the inside paneling is the original 1930's exterior wood from the barn. The house has offered sanctuary to 4 generations. we have watched the land and ecological succession over the years and have bird records since 1971. We love sharing our home and sanctuary with others and offer the spiritual transformation of peace and solitude.

Glenna Hopper purchased this house in 1978

Why Glenna Hopper chose Big Horn National Forest

Enjoy a relaxed home with all of the amenities, but with the added luxury of outdoor activities, wildlife abounds, some species of hummingbirds nest only here. We've seen bears and mountain lions passing through, no worries. Moose have wandered on to the porch. the fishing is amazing. walks are soothing and rejuvenating. and yes theres social activities. A beautiful church. hikes out the back door. horseback trips, fishing but mostly peaceful solitude and rejuvenation.

Do not stay here-owner not upfront about cats and disgusting odor

  • 1 of 5

This was the worst place to stay in. The smell of cat feces and urine in two overfilled liter boxes in sun room were horrible. This sun room connected to one of the bedrooms that were available. House was dirty with owners personal toiletries all over in another master bedroom. We left early morning (6:00 am) notified the owner and left. She did refund the 2nd night. VRBO needs to take a close look at this place. We feel owner lives here and lvavates the house if and when it is rented out, but forgets to clean and remove personal items from the bathroom. Shower stalls had many slivers of soap in holder. Horrible

Owner's Response: This was a surprisingly unfortunate experience for me as I've never had guests have a bad experience in my family home. I hope the rest of their trip met their expectations I have documentation of informing these guests about my cats which are isolated from the house to protect guests and I only open my personal room adjacent to them to provide extra space for guests. I may need to reconsider. I provide new toothbrushes, toothpaste etc for guests who might forget something and don't consider leaving these out to be offensive. A FULL refund was given to these people minus Vrbo fees I hope this wasn't their motive for their unfounded complaints. I have to think that perhaps these guests should stick with the Holiday Inn for their future travel plans. Glenna

Exactly what we were looking for.

  • 5 of 5

I'm not even sure I can describe how perfect this place was for our gathering. As we all walked in we couldn't get over how cozy and absolutely wonderful it was. It was like it was made exactly for our visit. Glenna is amazing and tremendously accommodating. We will absolutely stay here again if our travels allow. Thank you Glenna for one of the most memorable visits to Wyoming we've had. We sincerely appreciated your hospitality and adored staying in your amazing home.

Great weekend!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time staying in this home. It had plenty of space for the whole group, and we loved the character of the home and grounds. It was a pleasure to cook in the kitchen, as everything you needed was already there. Glenna was very friendly and made us feel so welcome. I would definitely recommend this property to anyone.
