Enjoy your stay in Thermopolis at this newer construction, 3 bedroom 2 bath home. The Big Horn river is one of the best fisheries in the state, and you have access to it right outside your doors. On any given morning it is the norm to see pheasants or deer walking by, along with many different species of waterfowl enjoying the waters of the river. Easy access to the town of Thermopolis, which offers a world class dinosaur museum, and two commercial swimming pools where you can enjoy the water from the natural mineral hot springs. Boysen reservoir is 30min away, while the scenic town of Cody, and Yellowstone Park are within a 2 hour drive. The Riverview Guesthouse is great if you are in town to fish, hunt, explore the local area, or for a base while making day trips. Presently, we do not have a TV or wifi, and our intent with this guesthouse is to help people engage more with each other and their surroundings, while getting away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. The location is ideal to enjoy a variety of outdoor activities, and board games are provided if weather keeps you indoors. The trout fishing along this stretch of the river is very good with both public and private access to the river. This location allows nearly 6,000 feet of public fishing access along the river bank downstream from the house, and almost 2,000 feet of private river access upstream.

About Sherman Skelton
Growing up my family ranched in the area, and we farmed on the hay fields around the vacation property. I am very familiar with the area and am more than happy to give any input on additional things to do or see during your stay in Thermopolis.
Why Sherman Skelton chose Lucerne
My great grandparents farm house was right across the road from the vacation property. I am the fourth generation to own this property, and had always dreamt of building something near the river. It was a dream come true when I broke ground on "the cabin" in the spring of 2013. The project was made even more rewarding by the fact that I was able to build the house with the help of my father, and under the watchful eyes of my 2 year old son. I truly wanted this to be a multi generational project. I worked 4 days a week in Casper, and then drove to Thermopolis and worked on the house every Fri-Sun for the next two years. There are still some projects to to on the property, but we have really enjoyed sharing our place with people from around the country.

Big House, many beds & sleeper sofa, great owner, on the river, fire pit, dishwasher, FANTASTIC!!!!!
A group of fellow hunters and I used this house as home base for our hunting vacation. It far exceeded our expectations, and will be our choice in the future. Great house, great location, great owner, huge yard, huge parking area. WE LOVED THIS PLACE AND WILL GO BACK AGAIN. THE OWNER IS A GREAT GUY!!!!
Great Place in the Country
Three of us rented Sherman's house for a week long fly fishing trip. We could not have been happier with the accommodations. The house is right on the river and has a great view out the back. We also used the fire pit every night to just hang out and catch up. I would certainly rent this house again when I visit this area. Sherman was a great host.
Wonderful Place to Get Away
Two friends and I used this house as our base of operations for a week of fishing the Wind and Big Horn Rivers. Both the house and the fishing were excellent. We are looking forward to returning to the area and renting the house again.
A FABULOUS HOME AND GREAT OWNER
We were 4 antelope hunters from Texas looking for a place where we could also fish.....too busy doing the former to accomplish the latter. But, we will be back next year and we are determined to also fish. The house was comfortable and perfect for our needs. The owner, Sherman, was very available with any questions we had and was very accommodating. We are planning to make this trip and this house an annual event.
Relaxing and Convenient Home Away From Home Located on the Bighorn River
My brother and I fish with a friend in Wyoming every fall and this is the second year that we have stayed at this beautiful house that sits a stones throw from the Bighorn River. Arriving at Sherman's place brought a smile to our faces induced by warm memories of last year and thoughts of a great experience again this year. We were not disappointed. This property is conveniently located just north of Thermopolis and is a great launch point for fly fishing in the region. It is quiet, clean and very comfortable. Cell phone access is excellent. No TV or internet access in the house but we prefer being "disconnected" for the week. We will definitely be returning to this property if it is available for our next trip to Wyoming.
Realaxation on a quiet river front
Our stay in the cozy, comfortable home exceeded the want of relaxation during our travel. Being able to enjoy the Big Horn River, quiet atmosphere, and views created that personally relaxed spot to enjoy. The home is clean, furnished, and well maintained. A must stay.
