If you are looking for a "big box" hotel, stay in Laramie. However, if you appreciate a warm, hospitable atmosphere and super clean and comfortable room, this is your place. Kat and Mike have done a great job maintaining and upgrading the historic hotel over the years. If visiting the Snowy Range, this is your place.
Just returned from four nights at the Mountain View. This place is truly amazing. Kat & Mike run an absolutely professional and charming operation. I stayed in the Buffalo Roam room in the front of the hotel. It has all modern conveniences including a refrigerator, microwave, coffee maker and large screen TV. The bed was very comfortable and the views out the windows of the plains and the Snowy Mountains are fantastic. But the best part is how Kat & Mike treat their guests. They think of all the little details and do their absolute best to make sure a great time is had. They roast their own coffee (fantastic!) and you will not find a better breakfast than what is made and served at their cafe. This was my second visit to the MVH, this time for a fishing trip - which was great, but that's another story! I can't recommend the MVH enough if you plan to visit the Medicine Bow National Forest and the Snowy Mountain Range. You won't find a better run or more charming hotel anywhere! I can't wait to return next year!!!…
So few people in this area of the state of Wyoming, it is a great place to get away and do some hiking, bird watching, and relaxing. Owners are super careful with the virus going on, extra cleaning and sanitizing. For birders, many birds up in the Snowy Range, just 30-45 minutes away from the hotel. Glacier lakes trail had many flowers blooming including beautiful vivid red Indian Paint Brush. Saw Moose, Elk, Deer, and Marmots. The best waffles we have ever had are made by Mike. Coffee is superb. They roast their own! Not an easy thing to do in dry Wyoming! All rooms have a microwave, coffee maker and a small fridge with a larger than most freezer compartment. Just a few places to eat in town for dinner, but Laramie is only 30 minutes away.
The owners are lovely! They followed up after I left to make sure I enjoyed my stay. My room was cute and very comfortable. It was a great, quiet, relaxing stay...just what I was looking for. I will be staying there again on my next trip to Centennial.
What a lovely hotel. We have been going to the Snowy Range for decades but this is the first time at the Mountain View Historic Hotel. We will certainly be back. Mike and Kathleen were excellent hosts. I would recommend the Paintbrush room for couples. Spacious and very well maintained. The breakfasts were fantastic. The roasted coffee was and unexpected plus.
