You Can Stay In A Wyoming Airbnb That's A Converted Sheep Wagon

If you've been captivated by the hit show "Yellowstone," then you may have already fallen in love with the Western vibes. While the show itself is fictional, the beauty of the west is real, and now you can try out the prairie life for yourself in Shirley Basin, Wyoming by staying in this refurbished sheep wagon listed on Airbnb. For $150 a night, four guests can sleep comfortably in the wagon which comes with a full bed and a table that turns into a second bed. There's also a half bath to use while you're there. It's important to note that due to the severe weather that can be experienced in Wyoming, the wagon is only open for hosting from May to early October, so plan your stay accordingly.

The quiet nature of the sheep wagon has gained a lot of love from the people who stay there; with 4.98 stars and 172 reviews, the wagon is a hit. One reviewer said, "Wow! What an adventure for a mom and two kids from the suburbs. We had a blast hiking, swimming, building campfires, and fishing. The sheep wagon was as cozy as can be." Another said, "If you want a remarkable, wonderful, extraordinary experience then stay here."

What the wagon has to offer

The Heward family's fully restored sheep wagon is an original wagon that has been used on the family ranch since the 1920s, per the Airbnb listing. It was renovated in 2013 to become a rentable unit. Guests can warm themselves with the fully operational wood burning stove that can also be used as an oven. There is no full kitchen, however, with the stove and pots and pans provided, you'll have all you need to cook meals and make coffee. There are kitchen essentials available such as plates, bowls, silverware, and cups. And to clean up your dishes, there's a wash basin.

The sheep wagon does not come with electricity, but you can bring your own generator in order to use the lights and have power inside the wagon if you'd like. The rustic and down-to-earth experience is what makes this Airbnb a unique experience; you won't find a TV, Wi-Fi, air conditioning, or shampoos available. To keep everyone safe, though, they do have smoke and carbon monoxide alarms.

The hosts offer a fun birthday package for an additional $40, where they will decorate the wagon. You can see photos of what this looks like on the Airbnb listing. Similarly, they will decorate the wagon for more romantic events with candles, flower petals, sparkling drinks, and stemmed glasses for an additional $50.

What the ranch has to offer

The ranch offers outdoor activities such as fishing, hunting, hiking, mountain biking, and riding ATVs, according to the Airbnb listing. The hosts welcome their guests to explore all 65,000 acres of the property; just know it's at your own risk. Be sure to bring proper footwear and outerwear if you plan to hike. There are springs, wildflowers, petrified forests, cattle, sheep, and Native American artifacts to see, and you won't want to miss out on the fantastic stargazing opportunities. Remember to bring your camp chairs so you can sit outside and enjoy Wyoming's fabulous sunrises and sunsets. In case of minor injuries while having fun on the ranch, the hosts provide a first aid kit. The best part of the sheep wagon experience is the solitude and privacy. It's quiet and cut off from the rest of the world, allowing you to turn off your phone and enjoy simply existing.

Heward Ranch was established in 1909 as a homestead and has stayed in the family to this day. Take the hosts up on the amazing opportunity for a guided tour of the ranch, where you can learn more about its rich history and see unforgettable views, take gorgeous photos, and hear intriguing personal stories. It's a 2-hour tour based on the guest's interests and there's plenty of time for follow-up questions and answers. The tour is an additional $75 if you're interested.
