This place was exactly what my boyfriend and I wanted for our trip from MN to Yellowstone.
As we pulled in to the ranch there were several deer in the yard next to the cabins! There were was also an owl we saw sitting on the front gate AND we caught a view of a buffalo just sauntering down the road about 10 miles away!
The cabins are very cozy and cute! Comes with a fridge, microwave, coffee maker and TV. Also, a beautiful view outside the cabins as the ranch is nestled next to Buffalo Bill Reservoir Park. Each cabin is decorated differently and have adorable personal touches! There are humorous paintings of one of the owners (Don) out in the wilderness (my favorite is the elk running by as Don was on a log)! And, they had a fan in the room; as folks who need noise to sleep, we were thrilled that there was a fan in the room! For those who love quiet and peace-- you won't need the fan. So peaceful there!
Patty and Don were very helpful in giving us pointers on where to go around town and while in Jackson.
It should be mentioned, we stayed at a few other places in the cabin type of layout and the Schmelz Ranch was by far the best out of all(-:
Definitely stay here, it's only about 30-45 minute drive to Yellowstone and 15 minutes to Cody!
Thank you Don and Patty for making our stay memorable!
