Property description

Chalet By the River is again being offered for quests visiting our area! The owners made it their home for four years and are just now offering it for June, July, and August 2015. It is situated and the banks of the Yellowstone River 10 miles north of Gardiner, Montana, the only year around entrance to Yellowstone Park. It is an easy ten minutes to the Park entrance. Being out of the Park and crowds at night is a welcome benefit. We are situated on about 5 acres in the upper Paradise Valley of the Yellowstone, south of Yankee Jim Canyon and north of Corwin Springs. We have neighbors across grassy pastures but are in a country setting. We are 90 miles from the closest airport in Bozeman, MT and about 2.5 hours from Billings, MT.
The Chalet~ The chalet is a 3500 square foot, 3 level chalet style structure built in 2004. It will sleep 12 in 4 bedrooms, 3 with queen beds, and a king in the master, and two sleeping areas with a futon and a full size bed. The lower level is day lighted to the outside with its own entrance, a full kitchen, living room and mountain views. Two of the bedrooms are in the basement each with queen beds. There is also a sleeping area with a double bed and a tub shower combination bath. There is a patio area off the basement doors with swing and eating space.
The main floor has an open floor plan with a great room, dining room, kitchen, bedroom, tub/shower bath, and laundry room. The view of the mountains, river and wildlife are spectacular and you will enjoy the wrap around deck complete with an outdoor kitchen, a bar with stools, and comfortable deck furniture. The dining room table easily seats 10. There is also a bar with 3 stools. There is a fenced in back yard with trees and large grassy area and a picnic table. There is a hammock and a swing in the front yard for your relaxation and enjoyment.
The large master bedroom is on the top floor. It has a king size bed and its own bathroom with tub/shower combination. Outside the master bedroom is a loft area that overlooks the great room with a futon and plenty of floor space.
Amenities~ We offer 2 TVs, a DVD player and Dish TV in the basement and master bedroom of the chalet. The cabin also has a TV with Dish TV. We offer Wifi but caution that we are in a mountainous area and service can be limited at times. It easily provides adequate service for email and internet. There is a fire ring beside the river for marsh mellow roasting. . In the grassy area in front of the chalet there is a swing set, yard games and tether ball. Lots of area to play. Fishing in the Yellowstone River from our property can be successful and a great experience in the blue ribbon trout stream.
The Chalet can be rented along with Cabin by the River for larger groups. They are close enough for convenience but far enough apart for privacy. Together they will sleep 17 and provides a perfect setup for family reunions. The cabin is available most of the year while the chalet is only available June, July and August.
The chalet was available for rent for six years and we enjoyed many very satisfied guests. We sold our home and have lived in the chalet since then. We have decided to do some traveling and volunteer work and have decided to offer it again to folks visiting our area. We know you will enjoy your time spent here with your family and friends.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1995

About the owner: I am a Montana native, 2nd generation, and Warren has lived in Montana most of his life having grown up in Northern California. We have 3 grown children and 8 grandchildren, some living in the area. Warren is recently retired from the National Park Service and I manage the cabin. We love living in the mountains but also love to travel. We have been providing lodging for visitors for almost 19 years and have loved meeting wonderful people and sharing our corner of the world. We have a dog (Tillie) and 2 cats who also enjoy our guests.

Why the Owner Chose Gardiner:
We built our 'Cabin By The River' in 1995. For 10 years we operated it as a bed and breakfast.. In 2004 we built the Chalet and rented it for 6 years. We have lived in the Chalet for the last 4 years and are now again offering it to guests visiting our area. We are located in a small valley of the upper Yellowstone River. We have about 5 acres on the Yellowstone River. The chalet and the cabin are on this acreage.

The Unique Benefits at this Chalet:
We love being close to the river and hearing it flow by at night. We are in a country setting with neighbors yet private. Guests enjoy fishing right here and having a fire in the fire ring by the river. The mountain views all around are spectacular.
