“Charming Cabin, nice people, great price.”
Reviewed 9 September 2012

We were looking for a night's stay on the way to the Pryor Mtn. Wild Horse Range, and Buffalo, WY was a good place to stop. The owners were so nice and helpful. They allowed pets, which we appreciated, and the individual cabin where we stayed was a cute log cabin--nothing fancy, but decorated in true Wyoming decor. Microwave and refrig. and AC made it all we needed at any time. The price was great too. We are so tired of being gouged by chains for the same cookie-cutter room. This was refreshingly different. There is also an outdoor area to cook and sit outside.

Room Tip: They are individual cabins, so they are quiet. Perhaps in the summer, the ones in the back away fro...

We stayed in cabin #7. There were 4 people and it was a bit tight but very charming. A lot better than a hotel room. There was an outside courtyard with numerous trees and shade. The price was very reasonable and I will stay again when I visit family in Buffalo.

Room Tip: There are photos and a description of each cabin on their website.

We stayed here with our three young children. Our cabin (#12) was cozy and tidy. While the cabin was a tight squeeze for five, (the owners offered us a cot) we had plenty of space to relax in out in the courtyard. The owners were very friendly and helpful. And the flowers around the place were gorgeous! We would definitely stay again if ever back in Buffalo.

I really liked staying here. The owners were super friendly & accomodating. The rate was very affordable. Four of us stayed in one cabin with 2 double beds. There were laundry facilities, tv, and wifi. The center garden was charming & we enjoyed the coffee & tea. Great location as well. However the bathroom may be a bit tight if you don't have a small frame.

We stayed in one of the cabins. It was small and dark, but very clean and comfortable. The area outside with the grill, tables, and chairs was great for hanging out. The price was very reasonable. I'll go back if I'm ever in Buffalo again.

My husband and I stayed here in one of the cabins for one night on our way to Yellowstone and would not go back. The owner was very nice at check in and we had no issues with the reservation. The cabin was clean and had a nice layout, but we encountered quite a few issues during our stay. The biggest issue is that the next morning when we went to take showers before hitting the road again, we had NO hot water! We didn't have time to wait since we had a long drive ahead of us so we checked out and were going to take showers at our next destination. When we checked out and told the owner about it, he seemed unconcerned. Said that sometimes with the high winds the pilot light on the boilers go out so he would check it out. He never apologized or warned us about this issue at check in or anything. It was ridiculous that we paid to stay at the cabin then had no hot water and the owner didn't care. We had other issues as well besides the hot water. The motel advertises wireless internet and while it is true that they do offer it, it is very slow and hard to connect to, so not very useful. The curtains in the cabin were decorative, but not functional. They were too narrow for the windows so light shines right in above the beds (and into our faces while sleeping). The thermostat on the A/C was broken with no knob whatsoever so we couldn't adjust the temperature - the air was either on high or we had to turn it off. Even though the cabins are neat and the owners are nice, we would not recommend staying here unless you are willing to put up with the issues and beware of the hot water issues.

We came upon these cozy cabins due to price constraints. It was perfect for our budget. The log cabins were fun and rustic feeling, but we did appreciate the AC and tv. We enjoyed marshmallows provided by the owners. The kids appreciated the grassy area in the middle of the cabins so they could stretch and run around. We would definitely recommend this to a friend.
