The space

This original sheep wagon was used on our family ranch from the 1920's until the early 1970's as a working sheepherders camp. In the Spring of 2013 we completed the full restoration of this sheep wagon. It is the first of two wagons we now own and rent out on Airbnb. This sheep wagon 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). Weather and conditions may become as such that the wagon will be made unavailable during those months.

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.

We would also like to offer you a few unique amenities with your stay on our ranch and in our sheep wagon.

This can add romance to your experience in the wagon for an additional $35. (See pictures of this in the picture gallery).

What an amazing adventure if you are looking to unplug and connect with your family. We had a wonderful stay at the ranch and Chad was very easy to communicate with. Highly recommended!

Where else in the world can you stay in a sheep wagon? It was such a unique experience and one we will not forget! The sheep wagon is small but well appointed, and all four of us slept in it very comfortably. The ranch is beautiful and we could have stayed for days exploring. We opted for the tour and are so glad we did. Chad showed us around and left us with an appreciation for the land and the people who have lived off it for the past 100+ years. Highly recommend!

What a great place to stay! My friend and I were looking for a true Wyoming experience and this is the place. The ranch is breathtaking as is the drive there. My friend and I had no problem resting comfortably in the wagon. Wyoming had some real crazy winds the night we stayed but the wood burning stove kept us warm and the wagon held up no problem. Chad was a great host and it was truly an unforgettable experience!

The sheep wagon experience was a seamless getaway for us thanks to the Heward's! Cozy and historic way to experience Wyoming. Cooking on the cast iron wood stove was easy and made for some delicious meals. The views of the stars and rolling hill were perfect!

The sheep wagon is all that is advertised. My daughter and I stayed one night on our cross country trip and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Chad is a very unique man, a rancher who obviously loves where he lives and what he does. But he is also a kind man and good teacher. If you stay here you must take the tour of the ranch; this made the stay for me most interesting. Chad is equally interesting and interested in finding out about his quests. Thank you, Chad for your ranch lessons and the tour!
