Star Hill is an end-of-the-road ranch tucked up into the Shoshone National Forest about 30 miles west of Cody. It is situated where Big Creek, a tributary of the North Fork of the Shoshone River, exits the national forest. It offers tremendous views of the Absaroka Range and is totally private lying in its own valley buffered by the national forest on both sides and within yards of the wilderness boundary. It boasts an excellent set of classic improvements and furnishings in a turn-key offering. The buildings were refurbished by famed architect Jonathan Foote with highly regarded construction firm OSM doing the construction. They are both charming and comfortable while maintaining the authenticity of a bygone era. An ideal family retreat, this ranch enjoys an owners compound, Four Seasons Cabin, horse facilities and a ranch managers home. Essentially the property is a strategic parcel of deeded land extending into the Shoshone National Forest, which in this area forms a protective barrier along the east boundary of Yellowstone National Park less than 30 road miles to the west. It essentially controls access into amazingly wild country that offers some of the finest big game hunting in the area. It widens or fans out as it extends from a narrow intimate valley southerly onto an irrigated bench above Big Creek which wends its way towards its confluence with the Shoshone River. Cody with daily commercial air service and multiple cultural and social amenities is a thirty-minute drive to the east - yet a world away. This is a classic historic guest ranch converted to a family retreat that is being offered turnkey and ready to enjoy immediately.
