About Laural Chambers
We built this because our children and grandchildren love visiting here. Now that the last of our family has left home, we decided we would like to share this wonderful property with others, so that they can also enjoy the things we have always enjoyed here.
Laural Chambers purchased this Apartment in 2008
Why Laural Chambers chose Lander
The mystique of the llamas and miniature horses, serene mountain lodging, wildlife, sit in a perfect balance of hillside views, with some shrouded Aspen and Pine Forest, which make for a picturesque setting. Walk along the whispering creek and enjoy the llamas and miniature horses, a very pleasant way to start or end your day. A stay at Lander Lodging is an experience to be remembered!

Ponies, Kittens, and Trout
We stayed here for 3 nights with our 5 and 10 year olds. The apartment was neat with enough space for all of us. Our kids fell in love with the baby kittens that were right outside our door and the ponies on the property. They couldn’t wait to get up in the mornings to go find the ponies. The hosts were very friendly and helpful. They gave our kids brushes to brush the ponies and let our younger one ride one of the ponies. They also let us know about events in the area and other things to do. There is also a swing set that the kids played on, and a large driveway where kids rode scooters, bikes, and shot hoops.
The property is on well water which we found a little hard to get used to, but not terrible.
Be prepared to get a little wet and muddy when hanging out with the ponies.
Sinks Canyon is very beautiful with good hikes and a place to feed the trout, which our kids also loved.
Also note that the entrance to this property is up a narrow spiral staircase. This could be difficult to navigate if you are carrying heavy bags or have physical challenges. All in all, we loved our stay here and would definitely want to stay here again.
Fun ranch stay
The apartment was connected to owners home. We got to feed the horses, cows and llamas. Hosts were very friendly. I would stay here again.
The property is beautiful and the owner was wonderful to us! The Shetland ponies and the llamas were so much fun to see. We found staying at this home relaxing, exciting and healing. I would definitely recommend this home. I'll never forget the incredible time our family spent at this lovely ranch.
Laural and Don were great hosts. Friendly and helpful at all times. The rooms were all unique in there own way, and the walk in shower was a great way to start, or end a day. Highly recommend!
This was a quiet and pleasant place to stay and Laurel and Don were really nice people. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
Beautiful and fun home!
We really enjoyed this property. The home was comfortable and all 3 bedrooms were quite large and the bedding was awesome! The property was loads of fun. The mini horses were hilarious and fun to feed and interact with, my kids loved them. The llamas were really fun too. The owners were incredibly sweet and helpful. We got separated from our family and a cell phone broke and they helped out SO much. I would highly recommend staying here, especially with kids that love animals! Lander is gorgeous and this rental was wonderful.
Don & Laural would like to share their little corner or paradise in Wyoming with you for your lodging needs. As your host and hostess of "Lander Lodging", home of "Wyoming Sinks Canyon Miniature Horse Ranch", we want to make your stay with us as wonderful as possible. What we love here is: the pure taste of freedom, the vibrant smell of fresh air, deep blue sky and sunshine ~300 days of the year. We also love the wide open outdoors with it's variety of terrain offering world class: fishing, hiking, kayaking, climbing, 4-wheeling, mountain biking, snowmobiling, snow shoeing, cross-country skiing, and some of the best hunting in the U.S. We love being one with nature and enjoying proud bugling elk, majestic mule deer, roaming antelope, mischievous squirrels, mysterious llamas, cooing pheasant, and the playful miniature horses. Life doesn't get any better than this!
Sinks Canyon is named for it's unique geographical formation, where the river vanishes into a large cavern (called "The Sinks") but reappears downstream in a trout filled pool, "The Rise" about a half mile down the canyon. These trout live a life of leisure measuring upward of 26+ inches, while visitors feed them.
Within the wall of the canyon are Wyoming's best: the river, fish and wildlife, the mountains, wildflowers and sage, aspen and pine, a rugged quite country under blue skies.
We have a very fun selection of restaurants in Lander, to suite every palate, and we will be happy to show you menus and make suggestions. We also have a fire-pit and a gas grill here on the property that you are welcome to use if you wish to cook something outdoors. Of course the Mountain Suite is already set up for cooking.
The Shoshone National Forest, The Wind River Wilderness and the Red Desert provide many beautiful hiking and four wheeling opportunities.
One popular hike to the Popo Agie Falls brings you to a beautiful falls and pools, and if you persist over the granite boulders you will come to a pool with a natural rock slide that people like to use during high water.
The Loop Road is a scenic drive, with 4 wonderful lakes you can stop and enjoy. It becomes a wonderful summer playground. You can find the hidden beach or explore the remote adventures on the far side of the lake in Kayaks, the most easy to maneuver of all UN-powered watercraft. We rent our Kayaks only to our guests. They are available at $25 per day. We encourage the buddy system for safety reasons. We will help you strap them on and be happy to make suggestions for our favorite places to paddle.
After Hunting Season, the Loop Road becomes a winter playground for Snowmobiles, Snow Bikes, cross country skiing and snowshoeing. (Wild Iris and Gannet Peak Sports rent cross country skis and snowshoes.) Here on the property we have a fabulous sledding hill and tubes which are only available to our guests.
For guest who would love the thrill of a snowmobiling experience, but don't have snow machines of their own. We will let you use our old machines in our attached field for just a little more than the cost of gas and maintenance, estimated to be $30 and hour, and yes we are happy to pro-rate the time after the first hour, and even spit the first hour between two machines.
