At the end of September, a new musician and artist retreat nestled along the Wind River on the west side of Dubois will be open after about a year in the works.
Owner and music lover Peter Gottfried purchased the property at 52 Bald Mountain Road in 2006 and has turned what was a calving barn and garage into a venue where musicians of all levels can stay, relax, play, and write music.
“I wanted musicians from the area to have a place to gather and do some cool things,” Peter said about The Barn at Wind River.
The completely gutted space now has a stage, professional audio and lighting equipment, and video recording options, along with a loft bedroom, a full kitchen, and a bathroom.
Peter reiterated that this is not an event center, but just a retreat. He is working with the Jackson Hole Center for the Arts on an exchange program and hopes to collaborate with other organizations.
The Barn at Wind River will be opening at the end of September. Check out their Facebook page for the latest updates.
