The Hammer Stone Ranch is a superb recreational property just west of Wheatland, Wyoming, surrounded by large ranches, and full of rich, Native American history, including numerous artifacts found on this very property. Historically, this ranch was a full-time home to several Native Americans, where their existence can still be found, encircled by some of the most recognizable mountains in the Laramie Range, including Reese Mountain, Squaw Mountain, the Cooney Hills, and Bills Mountain. Fly-fishing for trophy trout is just seconds from the front porch in one of the most scenic backdrops in the country.
The improvements on Hammer Stone Ranch consist of a finely crafted 10 year old custom built log home with 3 bedrooms /2 1/2 baths and a spacious modern layout. This is complimented by an indoor hot tub and attached 2 car garage.
The Wyoming ranch has all the amenities of a recreational get away, with a large work shop and finished log outbuilding, perfect for a guest bedroom or hunting trophy room.
