Paradise Valley cabin description

Dexter Peak cabin is perfectly situated on 25 acres at the base of the Absaroka-Beartooth Mountains. This cabin is one of two cabins, the other one about 1/2 mile away on a separate 20 acre parcel on its own which can be rented together or separately. See Elk Ridge cabin vrbo #191225. Just 35 miles north of Yellowstone Park, both cabins offer breathtaking views of four mountain ranges. Varying lights of the Montana skies and glimpses of nature and wildlife soothe the soul year round. Perfect for creative reflection, a romantic getaway, that special fishing trip or as a home base while enjoying the wealth of activities, breathtaking scenery and abundant wildlife the area provides.

The Dexter Peak Cabin sleeps two, has a loft bedroom with a king-size bed and a queen-sized comfy, quality futon couch on the main floor. Please notice the staircase going to the king-size bed. The cabin has a full kitchen, stocked with the basic essentials, a gas BBQ, television, VCR/DVD with a selection of classic movies, a washer/dryer, and an outdoor firepit located at the lower portion of our property in the draw. A rustic steel fire pit has been added outside the cabin for your convenience, firewood is provided.

The cabin sits on the edge of a meadow with its own private yard and covered porch. There is a wrought iron table and chairs and lounge chairs to enjoy the peace and quiet and views of the 11,000 foot tall mountains before you.

The door opens to a complete kitchen with hickory cabinets, a full bathroom and laundry area and a cozy living room with television, with built-in VCR/DVD, CD player, table and futon couch. A nice selection of videos and books adorn the bookshelf for your enjoyment after the adventures of the day. A rustic staircase rises to the loft with a king-sized bed. Foam sleeping pads are available for small children.

The kitchen is well appointed with a refrigerator, four-burner stove, microwave, cookbooks, pots and pans, dishes, glassware, knives, toaster, blender, and coffeepot and grinder. Laundry soap, iron, ironing board and dryer sheets are provided for your convenience.

If you have a larger group, be sure to see our separate listing for the Elk's Ridge Cabin #191225.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2004

              About the owner: Moved to Paradise Valley almost twenty years ago for the closeness to nature, and small town friendliness. Needed to escape the rat race. Met my husband, Gary, at age 39, and married. Discovered a new talent in myself with art. We purchased an old log bar/apartment and added an art gallery. Gary is a painter and framer and we are lucky to feature so many friends fine art and crafts. We feel like we are on vacation every day looking at the constantly changing light on the mountains and wildlife in our area.

              Why the Owner Chose Paradise Valley:
              Location is ideal, quiet but close to Livingston, fishing streams and river, intimate view of mountains, close to Yellowstone Park and a few miles from Chico Hot Springs, a favorite for locals and travellers alike!

              The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
              Views of wildlife, mule deer, red foxes, elk, eagles, red-tail hawks and many other birds.
