We stayed a total of five nights here on a two & 1/2 week trip. We stayed three nights at the beginning or our trip & two towards the end. The address is Encampment, but it is really in Riverside, right along the Encampment River. It is off the road a bit. Beautiful setting. Many times as we drove in,... More

Lynn is awesome ! She couldn't have been nicer or more accommodating ! Pleasant place to stay after being on the road. Very relaxed and homey. Everyone just blended in the common area. Would certainly stay there again ! Racoons came to eat on the deck. Mule deer sitting in the grass. LOVED IT ! Thanks Lynn !!!!

It was a such a nice surprise to see a B&B hidden away deep n WYO. We need a stop over from a 6 hr drive and decided to stay here. Lynn was very welcoming and a gracious host. Would have loved to explore the grounds, but we didn't have much time. A hearty breakfast sent us on our way... More

We stayed here three nights for primarily a fishing trip for my husband and two friends. Fishing was available in the Encampment River only steps from our room. Fishing outfitters are just 17 miles away in Saratoga, and several accesses to the North Platte River are located between there and the lodge. We wives spent time biking the uncrowded roads,...

From the hospitality of the hosts, Lynn and RG, to the deck on the banks of the Encampment River, to the appointment of the rooms (including art work by RG), to the peace and quiet of the location, in my opinion, you won't find a better place to spend a night or a week. We've been going here for 9... More

on a trip from the Teton's to Denver. Tks to Lynn and RG for having rooms for us and suggesting to grill steaks on the deck. A must stop for anyone in the area. Still do not remember the color of the horse in RG painting, but that's a guy for you.

Lynn and RG are amazing! Breakfast was to die for...Kudo's to Lynn and her french toast and pancakes...certainly not the stuff you'd get from IHOP. Friendly, warm, inviting, great clean rooms. We stayed in the Purr-fect view room with a full kitchen. It was delightful...horses roaming around, wild turkeys, deer and fawns... Be prepared for mosquito's but spray kept them... More

What a find! Lynn and RG are great hosts. The room was clean and nice. Beds were excellent. Breakfast was great on the deck overlooking the river. Location is hard to beat in the trees right on the Encampment River. Will definitely be back!

Lynn and R.G. (the hosts) have a quite a gem! My wife and I came for a quiet weekend and weren't disappointed. The rooms were clean and each unique. The property is right on the river - the deck is about 12 ft from it and the location is peaceful. One can walk to "downtown" in about 10 minutes. The... More
