Bozeman Trail Cabin, Bighorn Wyoming

This historic cabin has a long and storied history in Bighorn and Sheridan County, Wyoming. Well-known in our community, it has only passed through the hands of a few families, and is still held dear to those who recall, happy childhoods visiting and staying here. The large fenced backyard has shared many a peony root stock across the region, and still shelters repeat guests beneath its shading branches.

The cabin itself has gone through different versions over the decades and now holds a cozy cottage kitchen equipped with everything you need to prepare a bountiful meal for the dining table that seats eight. Or take a break from typical chores and enjoy a quick stroll to the Bighorn Mercantile for their stone-fired pizza, hot “sammiches”, and local brews or to Just Ledoux It Saloon and Steakhouse for tasty American cuisine and frequent live music.
Return home to original dark-stained log walls embracing a rustic interior, outfitted with comfortable seating and plenty of room for your family. The library wall is filled with the Ty owner’s diverse collection of reading material, including local references. Not that you’ll want to spend much time indoors with the incredible view of the Bighorn’s to be enjoyed from the swing on the side porch, or via a stroll along Brinton Road or a quick five minute ride up to the Red Grade Road trailhead sponsored by Sheridan Community Land Trust, but if summer rain showers or winter snowfall keep you inside you can enjoy your favorite streaming subscriptions or cable TV on any of the three flat screen TVs throughout the house, spread out a board game on the library table in the living room, or get some pressing work done in the study off the living room or enjoy a bubble bath in the clawfoot tub upstairs or a relaxing shower in the newly remodeled main floor bathroom.
