Shire Valley Cabins offer the full Western/Mountain experience at very affordable prices. Each cabin was built by master craftsmen and brought to Dayton in December of 2015. The name "Shire Valley Cabins" came into being because of the many travelers that came through Dayton to stop and see the majestic "Gentle Giants" which are the Shire horses we raise. The land these cabins sit on used to be our "viewing" pasture for all of the Shire horse babies born each spring. We decided to add the cabins to this lot and offer these luxury cabins at affordable prices, so all visitors would have an opportunity to stay in Dayton and enjoy all this beautiful area has to offer. Guests will be amazed at the fine craftsmanship and attention to detail in all cabins. Each cabin has it's own washer and dryer which guests may use free of charge. A full bath. microwave,refrigerator, living area and covered porch for BBQing all add to the functionality of each cabin. Shire Horse decor graces each cabin to give it that majestic touch of the Shire's true essence. We have 3 cabins.

About Brad and Wanda Johnston
Brad is a native Sheridan County resident and I, Wanda his wife, have lived in Sheridan County for 25 years. We have been married 21 of those years and have raised 5 children in the Tongue River Valley. We now are enjoying 12 grandchildren soon to be 13! After 25 years in education, I began dabbling in real estate and bought my first draft team to "mow" the lawn of a two acre parcel we had purchased. We enjoyed them so much that we began raising them in 2012 with the purchase of a Shire Stallion named "Legend" who is the foundation of all foals at Shire Valley Farms. We currently have 11 Shires, including 7 broodmares. Shire Valley Cabins were a brain child of ours when so many people from around the world who travel through Dayton would come to view these magnificent "Gentle Giants". We wanted to offer friends/family a place to stay while in Dayton which was the beginning of the cabins. Entrepreneurs at heart, we are always looking for ways to share the beauty and wonders of not only the prestigious horses and other farm animals but the surrounding beauty of the Dayton area and Big Horn Mts.
Brad and Wanda Johnston purchased this Cabin in 2015
Why Brad and Wanda Johnston chose Dayton
We chose these cabins due to the fact they fit on to the property so well and the access to the entire town was very user friendly. We designed them to be as all inclusive as possible other than it is our hope that all travelers will patronize the fine eateries in the area rather than be bogged down with cooking while on vacation! All though,outdoor propane grills will be provided during the summer.
What makes this Cabin unique
We noticed these cabins while traveling in Montana. We contacted the builders and soon began a year long dialog of bringing the dream home. The fit of the cabins on to this property is just perfect. It offers a quiet stay, while being within walking distance of all area attractions. The small town of Dayton still offers a big feel of overwhelming peace and rejuvenation! Come enjoy all that this"Little Piece of Heaven" has to offer!"

Awesome Cabin! Great Hosts! Overall, Super Experience!
Couldn’t have asked for anything better! The cabin was perfect... new, roomy enough for myself, great location at the base of the Big Horns, within walking distance of everything in Dayton, deer in the yard daily, and very peaceful! Wanda and Brad were superb hosts! They were very accommodating throughout my stay, loved the TV. Wanda was so engaging and wonderful to talk to. It’s so evident that they really take pride in their cabins and the entire area! I had an awesome experience in Dayton at the Cabin! Would definitely recommend these cabins to anyone visiting Wyoming! Thank you so much, Wanda and Brad for your hospitality! I truly consider you new friends!
What a pleasure to host such lovely people! Their enthusiasm for life and wonderful personality made hosting them such a joy. We will definitely keep in touch!
Great cabin, added plus of having a washer and dryer, the little quiet city has a lot of charm, nice little place to bike ride around as well.
Felt like home!
Very nice cabin with a feeling of home.
Great place, very convenient
We were in town for the Bighorn 100, and the cabin was great - clean, comfortable, close to the Start and Finish and a short drive into Sheridan. Planning to stay there again on our next trip to Bighorn. Highly recommended!
DOUG and his family were a pleasure to have stay!! We hope to see them again!!
Cozy Rustic Luxury
The cabin is just the right size. We loved the smell of fresh cut wood when we walked in the front door! A comfy bed, nice bathroom, and kitchenette were everything we needed to enjoy our stay. But, the best part of the experience was our hosts. Great communication before and during our stay. They certainly made us feel welcome! I would highly recommend the Shire if you're staying in the Sheridan, Wyoming vicinity.
Spent a couple nights in cabin #3 over Labor Day, and the cabin was just as described and perfectly accommodating for our entire family (2 young children + 2 dogs). Wanda had great communication throughout and the cabin is well stocked with towels, dishes, and a super comfy bed. Definitely recommend this place!
