This very private and luxurious 2000 square foot home is atop the Yellowstone plateau, near the Yellowstone River just 25 miles south of Livingston and 30 miles north of Yellowstone Park. The location is perfect for year-round access to Yellowstone Park, as the North Entrance is the only entrance open year round. You can drive through the Lamar Valley to Cooke city for world class snowmobiling seeing the great bison and elk herds on the way . We have year round fly fishing as well with the nearby blue-ribbon trout waters, and the most famous Spring Creeks in the world, - hiking the mountain ranges and national forests, horseback riding,white water rafting- you won't run out of choices, and in the winter, snowshoeing, alpine and cross country skiing, and dog sledding are common here.
Architect designed details like soffits for indirect lighting, 8 foot doors throughout, Montana yellow pine floors and trim, and generous windows make the home a very comfortable and relaxing place to stay. Cooks will love the kitchen with its gas range and fully appointed selection of cookware and small appliances.
Large picture windows and sliding glass doors in every room provide views of Emigrant Peak, the Gallatin Mountains, the Absarokee-Beartooth Mountains and the Crazies! You wont know which window to look out as each provides a spectacular view of snow capped peaks. Radiant floor heating throughout makes the cabin very comfortable for winter visits. The gourmet kitchen is the focus of the main living area and is a perfect setup to socialize while cooking the evening meal. The cabin is very tastefully decorated with unique Native American artifacts, vintage cowboy art, and some pieces by local contemporary artists. Much of the furniture is from the same company that made furniture for the old Yellowstone Park lodges.
The cabin is less than a mile from the Yellowstone River. Also about a mile away is the famous Chico Hot Springs Resort. Chico offers hot spring pools, guided outdoor activities such as horseback riding and whitewater rafting, 5 star dining, a grill, and a saloon with live music several nights each week.

About the owner: We built this as a family get away- with a love of fishing as the reason. Everyone who comes here feels at home, and free to express themselves. That's why we built it.
Why the Owner Chose Paradise Valley: I think it's one of the most beautiful places I have ever been, am reminded time and time again when I visit from my home in Seattle.
I often find myself in tears when I turn down hwy 89 and East River road, with the Mountains rising all around me.
The Unique Benefits at this House: The property is excellent for birding and in the winter months, deer and elk are often seen grazing nearby. We are close enough to Chico Hot Springs that you can easily drive down for an early morning soak before breakfast.
