About the Property

Cabin, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath (Sleeps 8)

*WE ARE NOT CURRENTLY ACCEPTING RESERVATIONS FOR THE SOLAR ECLIPSE IN AUGUST 2017*
This fully furnished Casper Mountain Vacation Rental offers many comforts of home, and is the perfect place to enjoy a restful getaway. With 1 private BR, a loft, and 1 Bath this mountain cabin sleeps 8 guests.

Check-in time 3:00 p.m.
Check-out time 11:00 a.m.

This rustic cabin is located on top of Casper Mountain, and offers a close proximity to hiking, mountain biking/fat biking, snowshoeing, snowmobiling, skiing (XC and alpine), fine dining, museums and shopping. Experience the benefits of Forest Bathing. Kick up your heels at the annual Beartrap Meadow Bluegrass Festival. Hike Garden Creek Falls, or have fun at the annual Winterfest which includes "HAWG" Ice Fishing Derby, Boomerang Run at Hogadon, ColdAvenger Triathlon, and Canines for Charity Sled Dog Race. Test your skills on Casper Mountain's Olympic quality Biathlon training course. At this cabin you can enjoy a friendly game of horseshoes, roasting marshmallows on a campfire, bird watching, or even capture photos of the mule deer that graze on the property daily throughout the summer. Wind down in the evening playing a board game, a game of Bumper pool, or cards on our conveniently reversible table top.

On the main level of the cabin you will find an open floor plan with a sitting area, a private bedroom, a bathroom, and a fully equipped kitchen- refrigerator/freezer, electric 4-burner stove with oven, microwave, coffee maker, toaster, pots and pans, and plenty of dishes and cutlery. The farm house style table in the kitchen seats 6, with an additional dining area that seats 4.

The sitting area has plenty of seating with 2 recliners, a sofa, and a large window for outdoor viewing. A 42' television, DVD player and stereo are also available to wind down after a long day of hiking, biking, etc.

The private bedroom has a queen sized Amish made log bed and two matching night stands. On the loft, there are two full size beds, and a set of twin bunk beds. A queen sofa sleeper with memory foam mattress is also available if needed. In addition a large closet is available for hanging clothes, storing luggage, and personal items.

The bathroom comes equipped with a stand-up shower, toilet, and sink.

Relax on the back deck with a 2 person porch swing, and a 4 place fire-pit table that adds the perfect ambiance to a fantastic view of the evening stars above the treetops. A horseshoe pit, a charcoal barbeque grill, and picnic table for outdoor dining are also available for your use. In addition a large outdoor fire pit, located in a clearing, is available for roasting hotdogs, marshmallows, making s’mores, and gathering around for some good old fashioned campfire stories.

PLEASE BE ADVISED: It is imperative to be forthcoming with the number of guests when booking your reservation, as well as ANY guests you invite over during your stay. By definition all persons with your party are considered guests. If you book our cabin for 4 guests, we plan and prepare for 4 guests. If you plan on up to 8 guests “sleeping” at the cabin, but have planned to hold your family reunion there as well, this is not the vacation rental for you. Our cabin/property will not accommodate more than 8 guests (including visitors). We do check, we will find out, and violators will be immediately evicted.
Our guests have come to expect a spotlessly clean cabin upon their arrival. There is a substantial difference in the time required to clean after 2 guests, and 8 (or more) guests. We need the appropriate amount of time to plan and prepare for ALL of our guests.
In addition, city water is not available on the mountain so the water supply is not unlimited. Fresh water from a water fill station is hauled up the mountain and held in a cistern. Should the number of guests exceed what we have planned and prepared for it is possible to drain the cistern dry, and burn up the water pump. NOTE; Water shortage will only be an issue if the number of guests at our cabin exceeds the number we were made aware of. Guests who have not been forthcoming with the number of guests (including visitors) at our cabin will be held responsible for all costs associated with water pump repair or replacement, any damage caused to the water system, and any additional expenses we incur to clean the cabin for the arrival of our next guests.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: Owners Dave and Gerri at a glance: Both are Wyoming natives and reside in Casper. Happily married for 21 years

Why the Owner Chose Casper Mountain, WY, USA:
That's simple, the small town hospitality and atmosphere Casper provides while still offering the many perks of a larger city. We purchased the mountain cabin property because we've always enjoyed the fresh mountain air and the serene feeling of being miles away from anywhere.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
PRIVACY. This cabin is not a condo, apartment, or part of a group of cabins. This private cabin sits on 2 acres by itself. PLEASE BE ADVISED: It is imperative to be forthcoming with the number of guests when booking your reservation. By definition all persons with your party are considered guests.
