About this listing
Country home on 30 acres with beautiful views of the mountains in a pretty valley. Sleep on sun dried sheets and enjoy a hearty healthy breakfast. Bring your pets, horses and dogs welcome.
Let me start by saying that this house is clean, comfortable, and cozy in a great rustic setting. The house itself did not disappoint.
Appearently the dirt road (couple miles of dirt road) leading to this house was washed out a month ago. Susan let me know this little detail 22 hours prior to my arrival. In other words, not only was it too late to cancel the reservation, it was also too late to find other accomadations. She knew we were arriving by motorcycle and 22 hours prior let me know that the washout made the dirt road "sketchy" for motorcycles. (worse then sketchy, but who's keeping score?).
This listing is for an "entire house" that "accommodates 6 people". My original reservation was for 4 people, we ended up having 5 people in our group. (5 is still less then 6). There are clearly only 3 beds in the listing, so 2 of us sleep on the floor. No problem. I've stayed in airbnb houses in the past and each time an entire house meant just that. This listing is actually for 2 private rooms in that house. What a susprise to be woken up at 6:30am by Susan entering the house!!! Again, not what I expected from an "entire house" listing.
I exchanged hello's with Susan and her first words were, "I see you have 5 people. I don't run a flop house. You will have to ay ($30) for the extra person". Not being one to argue, I paid the $30 and we got the heck out of there! I've read ALL the reviews on here and I'm thinking caught Susan on a bad day. For that I apologize.
If you are looking for an "entire home" with privacy, this is not it". If you are looking for (2) private rooms in Susan's house while she is there, then this is for you! Just don't take the whole "accomodates 6" seriously and you will be fine. If you have a nice car (or a motorcycle), please ask about the condition of the dirt (gravel) road prior to booking.
Again, this really is a GREAT house. It's *very* clean, *very* comfortable, and *very* cozy. A true rustic Wyoming experience. I hope airbnb suggests that she revise her listing to reflect what type it truely is.
Was so nice to have an authentic country side experience at Susan's beautiful ranch house.
Sunny J's offers a true taste of the West! Susan was a gracious host! She immediately made me feel right at home and offered me the choice between two rooms! Her home is beautifully decorated in a western theme! We had an opportunity to chat about life on the range! On the morning of my departure, Susan prepared me a hardy breakfast!
This was the most beautiful place I stayed in on our last trip with such a great setting. The house is clean and very well organized. I want to thank Susan so much for letting us stay on her wonderful ranch and for the great breakfast that she made for us. We and enjoyed our conversations with her and thanks for the directions and tips. We wish we could have stayed more then just one day. The ranch is exactly as described. We stayed in the large bedroom with such a great view. Loved waking up in the morning and seeing her horses and the deer out my window. It was an experience that we will never forget.
Susan was very nice and kind. Her house is lovely and a great way to disconnect from the city bustle. And you can't beat the price in the Yellowstone area!
We enjoyed are stay at Sunny J's Bed, Barn and Breakfast. It was comfortable and spacious. Thanks for the hospitality and we enjoyed meeting and getting to know you.

The host was accommodating and communicative, especially regarding directions. Since my wife is unable to eat bread Susan made her scrambled eggs in addition to making me a delicious egg bake.
The lodging was spacious and this may be my own fault but I realized after booking that I might not have the entire home to myself since there are two other rooms on the first floor. That night however no one else was there.
About the Host, Susan
I am a semi retired nurse. My husband passed away 5 years ago and decided to open a bed and breakfast for extra income and keep busy. My home is heated with a wood stove, raise my own chickens that give me fresh eggs, have dogs, cats and horses and ride in the warmer months in the hills or in nearby ranches or public land. Still do a bit of nursing and still find it satisfying.
Opened my B&B three year ago, have found it to be so rewarding. Have met some wonderful people and look forward to this year. Live on 30 acres 30 miles south of Cody in a pretty valley. Come join me for a beverage on the porch at sunset or a star gazing night after sunset.
