The three floors offer some privacy from other guests in your party while the main floor has a living room, kitchen and eating area perfect for preparing and eating meals together. Each bedroom has a queen sized bed and the loft is furnished with three full sized beds and fans. New to the cottage is a laundry room complete with washer, dryer, and utility sink.
The outside surrounding the cottage is completely landscaped with a large yard for children to enjoy while adults lounge on the open deck or covered porch with views of the mountains and creek. The property is great for hiking,fishing and sight-seeing.

Perfect getaway cottage
Perfect getaway cottage
The Old Chico Cottage was a great spot for our girl's weekend getaway. There is plenty of sleeping space and a comfortable living/dining area. The photos really do not do it justice. The cottage is very nice and feels like home. A minor problem was corrected within minutes, as help was just around the corner. The cottage is very close to the popular Chico Hot Springs which has not only the hot pool, but an excellent restaurant and bar/grill. Yellowstone National Park is not too far away and cross country skiing at nearby Mill Creek was great fun.

Love this place

This is the third time I have stayed here. Every time it gets better and better. This has become one of our favorite mini vacations each year. You are close enough to go to chico swimming but are away from the chaos of staying there.

About the owner: I am a sixth generation Montanan who grew up in the Gardiner area. I know much about Yellowstone National Park and things to do at the North Entrance, Gardiner, MT. With my husband, we operate a dude ranch North of Gardiner and he also guides elk hunters in the fall. When we are not tending day rides on horses at our ranch, we enjoy hiking, fishing, and touring Yellowstone and the surrounding area. Call me for more information or if I can help you plan your vacation!
Why the Owner Chose Gardiner:
I grew up on Emigrant Creek so I jumped at the chance to own this cottage. The cottage is easy to get to, but it is away from the crowds of Yellowstone National Park without losing any of the beauty of the area. It is located near Chico Hot Springs, which is a quaint little resort with natural hot springs to swim in, horseback riding, and dining. Yellowstone is an easy drive for day trips.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Emigrant Creek runs through the property and next to the cottage. You may hike the old mining roads that go for miles and follow the creek to its source. The area also offers fishing either in area creeks or Yellowstone River. I love to get a cup of coffee early in the morning and sit on the back porch to watch the sun rise, then go for a quick, quiet hike up the creek. Bliss!
