I receive excellent reviews for my hospitality and attention to guests. Please let me know how I can make your stay great! 

Burkitt Street is busy during morning and evening rush hours, but we are so close to downtown Main Street shopping and eateries, Third Thursday Street Festival and every Thursday Farmer’s Market that walking or biking is an easy and fun option. I can connect you to bike loans from The Hub. It’s an easy walk or bike ride to our extensive Sheridan Pathways system which connects all the city parks from one end of town to the other. The premier city park, Kendrick Park and Whitney Commons area, Kendrick Park ice cream stand and pool, wildlife viewing area, the library, YMCA, the vista and trails around the Trail End Historic Site at Kendrick Mansion, are all an easy short distance from the cottage’s central location. 

The two bedrooms are each equipped with a queen-size bed. One bedroom also has a foldout loveseat with memory foam twin mattress, and the other bedroom has a twin-sized memory foam floor mattress. There is also a toddler sleeping cot, travel crib, infant-sized bathtub for use in the shower, and a variety of toys and books for children to enjoy during your stay. 

Sheridan Wyoming Outdoor Access 

The Bighorn National Forest region boasts an abundance of wildlife, both on land and in the water. Rainbow, brown, brook and cutthroat fish are a few of the finned creatures found in the pristine mountain lakes and rivers. While the plush valleys around Sheridan and the forests of the Bighorns are home to an abundance of mule deer, whitetail deer, pronghorn antelope, elk, moose and wild turkey. Sightings of black bear, mountain lion and coyote are rare but also possible. 

Ice & troll fisherman are going to love Lake DeSmet, while fly and spin fisherman are going to have a ball in Tongue River Canyon.

With its mix of largemouth bass, rainbow trout, and yellow perch, anglers can enjoy a variety of fishing experiences from the shoreline. The aggressive nature of the fish and the proximity to Sheridan make Kleenburn Ponds an attractive option for those looking for a relaxed fishing experience close to town. 

Healy Reservoir: Situated six miles northeast of Buffalo, Healy Reservoir provides opportunities for anglers seeking impressive-sized fish such as tiger muskie and largemouth bass. These fish are often found near vegetation and brush, attracting anglers who enjoy the challenge of targeting specific species. Additionally, the reservoir is home to fairly aggressive yellow perch, adding to the diversity of fishing experiences available. With its proximity to Buffalo, Healy Reservoir offers a more remote fishing experience compared to locations nearer to Sheridan. 

Public Lands

Bighorn National Forest: Offering over 1.1 million acres of diverse landscapes, including rugged mountains, forests, and alpine meadows, Bighorn National Forest is a haven for outdoor enthusiasts. Popular activities include hiking, camping, fishing, hunting, and wildlife viewing. 

Medicine Wheel National Historic Landmark: Situated atop Medicine Mountain in the Bighorn National Forest, this ancient Native American site is both culturally significant and visually striking. Visitors can hike to the Medicine Wheel, a large stone structure used for ceremonial purposes, while enjoying panoramic views of the surrounding landscape. 

Sibley Lake Recreation Area: This picturesque area, located southwest of Sheridan, offers camping, fishing, boating, and picnicking opportunities. Sibley Lake is stocked with trout, making it a popular destination for anglers, while the surrounding forested hills provide ample opportunities for hiking and wildlife viewing. 


Location: For big game hunting, the Bighorn Mountains offer excellent opportunities. Specifically, Game Management Units (GMUs) 34, 35, and 38 are known for their elk populations, while GMUs 29 and 30 are popular for deer hunting. Antelope hunting is prevalent in the surrounding plains, particularly in GMUs 23 and 24. 

Specific Areas: Within the Bighorn National Forest, hunting areas such as Bear Lodge and Cloud Peak Wilderness are favored by hunters due to their rugged terrain and abundant wildlife. Additionally, the Pryor Mountains to the west of Sheridan offer unique hunting opportunities for bighorn sheep and other species.

Wildlife Viewing: 

Bighorn National Forest: Scenic drives along Highway 14 through the Bighorn Mountains offer excellent wildlife viewing opportunities. Look for pullouts and viewpoints along the highway, especially in areas with open meadows and alpine terrain. 

Bighorn Scenic Byway: Along this designated scenic byway, wildlife enthusiasts can spot a variety of animals, including elk, deer, moose, bighorn sheep, and birds of prey. Burgess Junction and other designated wildlife viewing areas along the route are particularly productive. 

Key Viewing Times: Early morning and late afternoon are the best times for wildlife viewing, as animals are most active during these times. Additionally, visiting during the fall rutting season or during spring migration can increase the chances of spotting wildlife. 

Mountain Biking: 

Red Grade Trails: Located southwest of Sheridan, the Red Grade Trails offer a variety of mountain biking experiences, including flowy singletrack, technical descents, and scenic views of the Bighorn Mountains. The Lower Red Grade Trail is popular for beginners, while the Upper Red Grade Trail provides more challenging terrain for experienced riders.

Please note that pets are welcome with an additional per pet fee that takes into consideration the length of stay – less for shorter stays, and more for the additional accumulation of hair and dander during longer stays. 

Please remove dirty shoes.  

You’ll have the entire house and front and back yards to yourselves. There is a single car garage with shop space that I use for storage. There is a remote possibility that it could be made available to you with advance notice and an additional fee. In the unlikely event that I need to access the garage, I guarantee that I would provide thorough advance notice and make agreed upon arrangements with you before accessing the property. I respect the privacy and sense of security of my guests. I will make every effort to ensure you are comfortable and feel safe, secure and at home during your entire stay.
