About this listing
Are you looking for a rare and unique adventure? Do you want to have a rustic and real-life western experience? Transport yourself back to the old west to a more basic and simple time and lifestyle. We welcome you to a stay in our sheep wagon.
This original sheep wagon was used on our family ranch from the 1920s until the early 1970s as a working sheepherders camp. In the Spring of 2013 we completed the full restoration of this sheep wagon. It has a full size bed inside, and an add in bed that accommodates two more people, two built-in cold boxes for storing and keeping your food cold, a pull out table that can seat four around it, and a fully restored and operational wood burning cook stove/oven. It is supplied with pots, pans, coffee pot and a variety of other cookware and utensils. It also is outfitted with plates, bowls, cups, and silverware for four, and with a wash basin for doing dishes. The Wagon is also set up so you can plug your own generator into it to have lights and power inside the wagon if desired.
Our family ranch is a 30,000 acre spread of ground that your are welcome to enjoy and explore. There are a variety of recreational activities and points of interest on the ranch. Some attractions include: lake fishing, stream fishing, hunting, Indian artifacts, a petrified forest, hiking, mountain biking, great rock hunting, riding ATV's, a rich mining history, beautiful spring wildflowers, exploring original homestead cabins and buildings, amazing star gazing, a large variety of wildlife and animals including our own livestock (cattle and sheep), beautiful sunrises and sunsets, or simply enjoying the quite solitude, and many other things as well. There are things to do and experiences to have during all four seasons of the year. However we strongly recommend that only maximum thrill seekers and high adventurers consider staying in the wagon during our winter season (November through March).
Our family ranch was homesteaded or established in 1909 and it has remained in our family and a fully operational ranch since then. We wish to share this rich history, industry and area that we love by inviting you to experience it with a stay in our historical sheep wagon.
Please treat wagon and property with respect and clean up after yourself. Please no smoking or burning incense inside the sheep wagon.
