About this property

Woods Landing Guest Cabin on the Big Laramie River

Historic cabin in Laramie
The River Guest House, one of several historic log cabins, at the Woods Landing Resort, is nestled in the cottonwoods, right on the bank of the Big Laramie River. This cozy cabin offers three bedrooms, one bath, newly remodeled (2011) full kitchen with cooking utensils and dishes, laundry room, and a large mudroom. The cabin is heated with a forced air furnace, along with a woodstove. The Big Laramie River is right out the back door and Jelm Mountain is across the road. Sit out on the front porch and watch the mule deer wander by, along with an occasional moose, elk, bobcat, coyote, or black bear. Mountain biking and hiking trails start on our property and head west, up the hill to join up with miles of trails and roads, in the Medicine Bow National Forest. The Woods Landing Resort is a historic roadside retreat located at the base of the Medicine Bow Mountains, approximately 27 miles southwest of Laramie, Wyoming. Originally a saloon built by Colonel Samuel Wood in 1883, Woods Landing became a regular stop for lumberjacks, freighters and stage drivers because it was at the intersection of three roadways. In 1932, the owners built a dancehall and a few cabins for vacationers, including the River Guest House. The dancehall was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1986. Today the Woods Landing Resort offers a full service restaurant, bar and dancehall, as well as a general store, post office, and cabins. The bar and dancehall is a regular meeting place for area ranchers and dudes, who come from the entire Big Laramie River valley, to enjoy our Saturday night dances. The café serves up the best burgers, shakes, and pie in the Valley. Besides the River Guest House, other lodging at the Woods Landing Resort includes a new luxury log cabin duplex, six rustic log cabins, and 10 recreational vehicle spaces. In all, we can sleep about 36 people, in addition to recreational vehicle spaces so we are a perfect venue for family reunions, weddings, and just plain fun. During the summer months, you can bird-watch, raft or fly fish on the river or on one of the numerous plains and mountain lakes, within 10 miles of Woods Landing. Lake Hattie is a favorite lake for windsurfing in the summer and ice-fishing in the winter. You can hike or bike right from your cabin or drive to one of many trailheads, within a 10-mile radius of the resort. There are also hundreds of miles of ATV roads close by. Hunting for elk and mule deer is a favorite part-time in the fall. During the winter months, there are miles and miles of groomed snowmobile and cross-country ski trails, just a few miles up the road. Laramie, home of the University of Wyoming, is only a short half hour drive from Woods Landing. Visit the many art galleries, museums, or the Territorial Park during an outing to town.

4/5 Good

Great location!

Good location, everything as advertised. Lovely place! Clean, quiet. Cafe food was great and the staff were super friendly. Only down side: If you need to stay in touch with the outside world, this may not be the place for you because phone and WiFi are sketchy at best. We went up to the cafe to use their WiFi and their connection was much better.

5/5 Excellent

Great get away, fishing cabin

Nice balance of outdoors, fishing and resort entertainment.

5/5 Excellent

This cabin was everything we hoped it would be: quiet, great setting, clean, roomy, river access. We would definitely go back. In fact, no one wanted to leave.

Stayed 3 nights in Jul 2019

Love Woods Landing

This is a very clean and cozy cabin about 50 mins outside of Laramie situated along the Little Laramie River. We rented this cabin to host our Father's 80th birthday while also attending a Wyoming football game. The cabin had all the comforts of home. The staff at the restaurant and the general store (Devon) were all very polite and very helpful. Devon took the time to give us very clear directions via a dirt road to Saratoga, which had the most beautiful fall colors. And to top it off, Franny, the Owner's dog, stops by every day to say hello. We will without a doubt stay here next year and fully recommend this place to anyone.

5/5 Excellent

Wonderfully quite, peaceful, home away from away home!

My husband and I loved our stay in this awesome home on the Big Laramie River. We have family in Laramie and were traveling with our two 6 year old dogs. Our niece works on a ranch that is not too far away and stayed with us one night with her two dogs - still plenty of room! There is no grocery store nearby (a little store that is not always open is next to the gas pumps if you need condiments) so bring your food, especially if your trip includes a Tuesday thru Thursday stay because the restaurant is closed these days. Also, they do not serve breakfast at the restaurant so just plan ahead and you'll be good to go. We found one walking trail with a fairly steep grade and no trees for shade but I took it in the morning on several occasions - the view was breathtaking. So if you're looking for a place to reconnect with nature and your family (bring board games and a deck of cards!) this is for you. If you're looking for luxurious resort then we would recommend a different destination. The owners were great too!
