“Late Season Gem”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 November 2012

When we decided to go north in mid-November, before the blizzards made it more difficult, we happened on a great find. Pretty much in the middle of nowhere, there are quaint and clean little cabin-rooms that hark back to the sixties. Two comfy single beds, a tiny but well equipped kitchenette, gratis basic breakfast and very accommodating hosts. Only down side might be the lack of chests/drawers to stow your clothing if you happen to be staying for three+ days. While there is a dearth of motels between Casper and Yellowstone, and this one might not be considered a destination resort, I would definitely recommend a trip any time of year -- when it's not storming. It appears that quite a few vacationers visit this location during peak season and the proximity of other families could cause a noisy stay. However, if you are an early/late fisherman or a fall hunter, look no further! Across from the resort there is a conservation area which houses 900 big horn sheep. The srrounding area is home to wolves and even grizzlies. If you persevere you might even catch a brown trout on the property of the motel and trailer park.
There's a well stocked fly shop "downtown," Marlow's, and fly fishing guides should you need some help with local conditions.

We stayed in their Queen cabin with kitchen & screened backporch overlooking the wind river. Clean, well equipped & comfortable. Had a family of mule deer visit morning & evening from across the river. Our Scottish terrier loved the walks along the river & the visits by the mulies. Very hospitable staff & great price. Stayed nearly a week this time. it wasn't our first & hopefully not our last vist @ the Longhorn. Beautiful views of the badlands, east of Dubois! Fishing & wildlife viewing were great.

Just now writing a review. Our stay was June, 2012. We had a lovely time here. First and foremost, the scenery is spectacular. The Longhorn was very comfortable, quiet, great coffee in the morning, very pleasant and helpful personnel, and the grounds were right next to the river (which was still fast moving from the snow melt and a previous rain). We stayed in the lodge, but there were quite a few big RV's on sites that looked to be a good size.

The town is truly western and small. But, the people we met were friendly and happy to see visitors coming in after the slowness of the winter. We met a person, Beth, who was simply the friendliest and knew so much about DuBois. We even thought she should be the town historian and tour guide.

We truly enjoyed are time in DuBois.

This is the 2nd time I have stayed here and I will be coming back.
The rooms are large, clean and well appointed with good beds, large flat screen tv.
Its quiet with very nice grounds with a river.
The staff is very kind and curtious.
The staff upgraded my room for free when they ran out of the standard rooms!

My girlfriend and I are cycling across America and we booked a night in a standard cabin at Longhorn. There was nothing standard about the stay; a warm welcome, gorgeous cabin, great amenities, cosy feel and a delicious breakfast.
The camping option also looked great if a cabin is out of the price range; very clean bathrooms which are very private.
Would definitely recommend the place - wonderful!!

We have traveled and camped all over the USA. This truly was a very pleasant surprise. It is surrounded by beautiful mountains, there is a great playground, a bubbling brook runs through it were deer stood and watched my kids play. There are laundry facilities, and private bathrooms for campers with individual showers!!! Never saw anything like that before. Immaculately clean. Friendly staff. Quaint little town nearby. We just loved it. Wish we could have stayed longer.

Wonderful place to stay. The accommodations are beautiful & staff outstanding. Units we stayed in are new & very clean we had no issues or concerns and I feel like if we did, the staff would have resolved them. We stayed 3 nights Sept 7, 8 & 9, in one of the cabins 2 nights (Unit #1) & a resort room the last night (Unit #22) absolutely wonderful accommodations (rustic style rooms). One thing you have to remember this is a ranch environment, you do not have a pool or an on-site restaurant (restaurants with-in 2 or 3 miles) but you do have beautiful peaceful grounds that are well kept & with a stream running through the grounds. Great scenery, hiking, fishing & the staff will give you plenty of suggestion regarding things to do & see. great stay.

Room Tip: If you stay and are willing to spend a little more on your room we would recommend cabin #1, you wil...
