Spahn's Bedn and Breakfast: Spahn's Bed and Breakfast: A Very Bad Experience

We experienced several major inconveniences during our two-night stay at the Eagle's Nest Cabin at Spahn's B&B in June 2007: (1) no electricity on the second day of our stay, (2) only 7 minutes of hot water in the shower, (3) undrinkable and un-sanitized water, and (4) unflexible 8am breakfast with overbearing host. First, on the morning of the second day of our stay, I tried to dry my hair with a travel hairdryer (nothing fancy). Apparently, this simple appliance was too much for the owner's self-designed solar energy source; it shorted out the electricity in the entire cabin. We reported the outage to the owner, but he did nothing to repair the short - which would have required a basic fuse from Home Depot. Second, while the owner's assistant claimed that the hot water in the shower would last for 30 minutes, it actually only last for 7 minutes (relaxing, eh?). Third, when we checked-in to the cabin, the owner warned us that he's never tested the water in the cabin and thus he would not drink it. He offered two bottles of water instead. Finally, the owners offer breakfast at 8am sharp (and at no other time) and they strongly recommend that visitors to arrive at 7:45am to have coffee. It's completely unflexible, fairly formal, and rather stiff. We were never asked about food allergies, requests, or needs. The lodge and cabin are located in a beautiful setting, but the accommodations do not warrant the $125/night charges - with or without electricity and hot water.

Spahn's Big Horn B & B: A special experience

A stay at Spahn’s is more like a visit to friends than anything else. Guests are welcomed as part of the family and encouraged to make themselves at home – by George the dog as well as by Ron and Bobbie Spahn. The house is built in log cabin style (built by Ron himself in fact) and manages to look both stylish and comfortable.

There are three bedrooms available in the lodge itself and a couple of cabins too. We stayed in the Aspen Room, which was small but very pretty and comfortable. An excellent cooked breakfast is included in the rates, served family style. There's a deck with wonderful views, and a cosy sitting room where guests are welcome to sit and swap travellers' tales, while Ron makes helpful suggestions about more places to discover. Ron is an ex-Yellowstone ranger, and a geologist, and has extensive knowledge of the area, a knowledge he delights in sharing.

One thing you need to know if considering a visit here is that it isn’t the easiest place to drive to. Ron explains on their website:
“Our road is a steep winding one-lane gravel mountain road. We've had Jaguars, Cadillacs, Mercedes, and the UPS truck here, but if you're uncertain about driving it, just stop and honk, and we'll come and help you.”
Having said that, we certainly didn’t find it a problem in our small hire car, so don’t let that put you off!

If you enjoy B&B style of accommodation this place will certainly meet your needs and you could use it as a good base on which to explore on your own. But to get the best out of a visit here I’d really recommend that you take up Ron’s offer of guided trips. We went on two tours with him, and although these weren’t cheap we felt we really got our money’s worth out of the experiences, which we now look back on as among the highlights of our visit to Wyoming. I’ve created separate tips to describe the tours – an evening wildlife drive and steak dinner, and a full day tour to the Pryor Mountains.

Lodging- don't wait

Sheridan is one of the gateways for Yellowstone National Park. If you are driving through Sheridan, or Wyoming in general, do NOT wait until 7-8pm to find a hotel room. Most hotels are full by early evening during the summer season. October can sometimes be difficult also due to hunting season.

there are many mom and pop motels in sheridan that are clean inexpensive.

Spahn's Bed and Breakfast: Spahn's Bed and Breakfast

estimating $90 - $175 a night.

It has a small lodge like quality done in very good taste with a fantastic breakfast included. Besides regular rooms they have a whole cabin they rent. Once again, the cabin is very comfortable and is smartly decorated.

Spear-O-Wigwam Guest Ranch ...

Spear-O-Wigwam Guest Ranch (Dude Ranch)
I think they offer a week stay for approx $1150 per person. All inclusive. Overnight pack trips into the wilderness on horseback are an addition $40.00 per night.

This is a mountain dude ranch. Most dude ranches are in the foothills or plains, not in the mountains. Activities are rock climbing, horseback riding, hiking, fly fishing (stream or lake),camping, or just relaxing.

There are MANY motels, hotels,...

There are MANY motels, hotels, and lodges here. I would have to recommend a place called the Mill Inn. It is a historical flour mill that has been added on to, to make it a motel. The big silos are still visible and stand around 100 ft. tall! I also recommend making your reservations through a friend of mine. Her name is Jennifer, she is very professional and courtious, and will make your arrangements quickly and efficiently!
I will post the rates when i get an accurate quote...stay tuned!

The view from the top floor is unmatched! You have a 180 degree birds'eye view of the town!
