Welcome to Spahn's Bighorn Mountain Bed
Bighorn region is usually passed over hurriedly by first-time
tourists- an unexpected looming mountain barrier on the way to
Yellowstone- but for those special folks who don't like crowds,
condos, and curio shops this has always been a special place.
Mountains to explore, Indian wars sites to discover, western
lifestyle you thought was gone forever. . . . . and where else can
you see one hundred miles from the window!
SPAHN'S is an traditional mountain lodge where
guests are personally entertained in the relaxed style of an earlier
time. Guests are made to feel like part of the family and come away
with a personal attachment to Sheridan and the Bighorn Mountains.
Guests socialize and compare their vacations and
their lives with each other and the hosts each morning at breakfast
and at the end of the day on the deck or in the great room of the
lodge. Guests are folks who prefer to explore and discover on their
own, and as hosts Ron and Bobbie listen to plans and interests and
make suggestions to facilitate those desires.
While our main purpose as hosts is to facilitate
exploration on your own, there are some places that are just too
remote or hard to find, and besides, some folks prefer to have a
"native guide". So while we'll be telling all we can about where to
explore on your own, there are some days when we load up the
Suburban and put together a party to reduce costs and have some fun.
For those seeking active participation there is
hiking, fishing, jeeping, horseback riding, golf, bicycling, auto
touring. Spectator sports include rodeo, Indian powwows, polo,
wildlife viewing, and birding. A day in town can include shopping,
dining, museums and perhaps a little taste of the bright lights that
evening. Guided activities include history tours, wildlife safaris,
fishing guiding, and geology trips. Daytrips to area attractions
visit Little Bighorn Battlefield, Bradford Brinton Memorial, Devils
Tower, Bighorn National Forest, Pryor Mountain Wild Horse Range,
Bighorn Canyon National Recreation Area, the Medicine Wheel, the
Hole in the Wall, Trail End Museum and Fort Phil Kearney.
Mountains higher than Yellowstone, wildlife that's really wild,
exciting history sites . . . . .and no crowds!
The Bighorn Region is a vacation destination for the discriminating
