Property description

We have an absolutely ideal location... amazing views and convenience too.

Plus, we just completed a MAJOR update and will have the home entirely renovated for the summer of 2016! So be prepared to enjoy many new improvements - hard wood floors, kitchen with granite counter tops, new windows, updated private bedroom/bathroom suites, game room with pool table, ping pong table and more.... Most of the improvements were completed for the summer of 2015, and we will complete the final stage of the remodeling for the summer of 2016!

Start your days watching the gorgeous sunrise on Electric Peak (one of the highest mountains in Yellowstone National Park) right from the breakfast table with the gentle sounds of the Yellowstone River flowing by the property. Our vacation rental home is perched above the Yellowstone River with an expansive view overlooking Yellowstone National Park. Wildlife abounds! Watch eagles, osprey and ravens soar BELOW YOU over the River. From the dining room or deck off the back, we've watched a wolf pack pursue and take down a pronghorn, eagles catching fish in the river, bison herds grazing, elk swimming across the river and a pronghorn give birth to twins! You never know what you may see - it can be utterly amazing wildlife encounters or simply the awe inspiring beauty of the mountains and river. Our view is south facing, so there's lots of sunlight to soak in all day long. At the end of the day, grill in the yard and let the kids play on the swing set or just sit on the deck while you watch the sunset reflections on the river and enjoy the 'big sky' views of Montana and Yellowstone.

The convenience of our property will make your vacation feel simplified and relaxed. You can walk to the grocery store, restaurants, ice cream and pizza too...check out the bookstore, gift shops or even white water rafting outfitters where they'll 'suit you up' and take you rafting down the river, right by your vacation home! Elk River Art Studio and Gallery is right next door (that's us!), where we create art inspired by the landscape and animals you'll experience during your trip to Yellowstone. A little further, the Roosevelt Arch at the northern entrance to Yellowstone National Park is just a mile away. And just a couple miles from there, you can soak in the Boiling River - the hot springs in Yellowstone Park. There's A LOT to experience in Yellowstone (we certainly love it!) and we'd be happy to point you in the right direction and help make it a vacation of a lifetime for you.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: My husband and I are both artists, living, working and raising 2 children, at the edge of Yellowstone. We enjoy living in the midst of wildlife, surrounded by the beauty of the natural world - and take advantage of our Yellowstone 'back yard' (literally!) every chance we get. I paint outside in Yellowstone often and in our 'spare time', we hike, cross country ski, canoe and kayak.

Why the Owner Chose Gardiner:
We literally searched for years looking for 'the spot'. We are artists fortunate enough to live where ever we'd like. Our property is on the Yellowstone River overlooking Yellowstone National Park. We lived in this home while we built our new studio and gallery on the property. The mountain and river views are gorgeous and we're at the edge of a wonderful, friendly small town. We can walk to the grocery store and Yellowstone National Park too! Hiking, skiing and soaking in the Hot Springs are just minutes away. Plus, we're close enough to take advantage of Livingston and Bozeman, MT - a couple great towns with good vibes and bigger amenities. You can get to lots of art, outdoor activities and shopping after a beautiful drive up Paradise Valley (aptly named). That's why we call our spot 'the center of the universe.'

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Not too many places on this Earth have what we have. How many people can watch a wolf pack hunt, eagles and osprey catch fish, bison herds graze, elk swim and twin pronghorns born - right from their dining room window? We watch Electric Peak (one of the highest mountains in Yellowstone Park) as the sun rises it turns a beautiful 'morning pink' with the soft sounds of the river in the background. We can watch the sun set and turn the river to a ribbon of orange, then at night, with the moon above, the river again comes alive and sparkles with the moons reflection. How could we want anymore?
