As you drive along the Northfork Highway towards the east entrance of Yellowstone National Park, you pass the stunning Buffalo Bill Reservoir and wind your way through the heart of the Shoshone National Forest and Absaroka Wilderness. Nestled privately near the small town of Wapiti, Wyoming, sits the Jim Creek Retreat. Boasting 1,650± linear feet of Jim Creek frontage, a stocked fish pond, and a creek-bottom forest, this well-maintained property offers the perfect mountain home and recreational getaway.

The property provides grand views of the Shoshone National Forest, including Jim and Table Mountain, visible from multiple angles. With 93± acres of deeded land, the facilities are tucked away into the mountainside, ensuring privacy from neighbors in all directions. The Jim Creek Retreat truly offers a sanctuary in the Rocky Mountains near Yellowstone National Park.

The 3,000± square foot home is immaculately maintained on the exterior, providing four bedrooms and three full baths. The house has dramatic views from the third-floor primary bedroom, including a sitting room for glassing wildlife in the Wyoming Elk Hunt Area 56. Several outdoor gathering spaces enhance the property: the back porch leads to a fenced backyard with a lush green lawn, while the front porch offers stunning mountain views and an overlook of the permitted fish pond. Additionally, a picnic gathering spot along Jim Creek, shaded by a canopy of trees, provides a peaceful and quiet setting. The modest guest cabin is perfect for visiting friends and family, with a kitchen, bedroom, bathroom, and lounging space.

The horse facilities include two catch pens, a round pen, and access to two irrigated horse pastures. Two additional structures provide a wind shelter from winter weather and a hay storage shed for premium-quality horse hay. The sale also includes a small Bureau of Land Management (BLM) grazing allotment for additional horse pasture grazing.

Properties of this size are rare in the Wapiti Valley along the Northfork of the Shoshone River. With fishing access and forest trailheads scattered along the river bottom en route to Yellowstone Park, the area is a recreational paradise. Cody, Wyoming, is just 25 minutes to the east, offering all the necessary amenities for homeowners. The Jim Creek Retreat truly is a rare opportunity to own a piece of the beautiful Wapiti Valley.
