2 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 4
Moose Alley Lodging opened for business in August 2001. It all began with the idea to build a studio apartment behind our residence for our children just in case they ever decided to 'move back home'. Extended family and friends came to vacation in our beautiful town and of course, we welcomed them to stay in our wonderful, little apartment. Everyone raved about how much they enjoyed their stay in our cozy, 'moosey' home away from home...so we decided to offer Moose Alley to other travelers as well. We have made many new friends along the way and hope to make many more in the future. It is now 2018 and a lot has happened in the years that we have been in the vacation rental business. We are much older and hopefully "wiser". Our family has grown and we have been blessed with eight grandchildren along with much added joy to our lives. We have renovated five properties since the spring of 2012 and we are always thinking of new ways to upgrade and improve a 1936 three- bedroom bungalow, early 1940’s two-bedroom ranch style cottage, a historic 1900’s one-bedroom cottage and a 'modern' two story four- bedroom with a vintage two-bedroom cottage and of course, our 'Moose'. It has truly been a labor of love, because it’s exhausting work and at times we were asking ourselves “what have we gotten ourselves into?” We have weathered the stress of the initial major renovation and now we can stand back and admire the accomplishment. We even received the ‘Pride Award’ from the City of Cody for our beautification of these properties. We have really enjoyed renovating these houses to make them beautiful and comfortable “homes” for our guests. The best part of this business is the hundreds of wonderful people we have met from all over the world. We enjoy sharing information and doing what we can to help make our guests trip to Cody, Wyoming, Yellowstone and surrounding areas an enjoyable experience that they will cherish and have fond memories of for many years to come.
Owner purchased this Cottage in 2012
Why Owner chose Cody
This property had been vacant for many years and everyday we would drive by and hope that someday soon, the neglected little house would have an owner that would love it and bring it back to life. In 2012, we were given that very opportunity by a chance meeting and we were thrilled to be the proud owners of this little ranch style cottage with an interesting history.
What makes this Cottage unique
Minutes outside Cody, there are miles and miles of scenic grandeur as far as you can see. Wild mustangs and antelope still roam free across the prairie. Moose, bear, bison, wolves, mountain lions, Big Horn sheep, mountain goats, just to name a few, are visible in the forests, marsh and on the majestic mountain tops. Native Trout and other fish species are abundant in the pristine waters of rivers, lakes and streams that are so much a part of this vast, incredibly beautiful landscape that is Wyoming. Fifty-three miles to the west of Cody is the world’s first national park, Yellowstone. Established in 1872, no place on earth compares to the splendor and mystery of this natural bounty with parts still waiting to be discovered. The awe and wonder of Yellowstone attracted early explorers and now modern day explorers, scientists, nature seekers, as well as inspiring writers, artists and photographers from all over the globe. Every direction you choose to travel from Cody is pure delight. There is discovery and a feast for the eyes around every turn and down every stretch of road. When you decide to visit and experience the traditions of the old west and see with your own eyes what drew settlers here from long distances, you will not leave here the same. The memories of this unforgettable place will stay with you forever and you will yearn to return someday.

Well located near downtown and local attractions. Extremely clean and freshly painted. What more could we want?
Very nice property!
Enjoyed our stay in Cody at this property, impeccably clean and furnished in true Western style! It's located on a fairly busy street; don't let that alarm you as it's very quiet inside and most importantly at night. Make sure you get complete instructions for using the lock system before checking in.
