Property description

The Trapper Cabin at Beartooth Lodge is a 500 sq. ft. 1 bedroom cabin with river frontage on the Clarks Fork of the Yellowstone River. There's a queen size bed in the bedroom and a queen hide-a-bed sofa in the living room. Sleeps 4 people comfortably, if you want to try and squeeze more into it that’s up to you. Bring sleeping bags and put some kids on the floor, you can stack them if you want too, we don’t care! Don’t fight with the kids to take a bath; put them in the cowboy hot tub, they come out clean! The main thing is to come and have fun! We are kid friendly; all we ask is that you watch them by the river and that you take them back home with you when you leave!!!!

Our cabin rentals start on a Sunday; we have a minimum stay of 6 nights. Make sure you book early because our summers fill up fast.

Our cabins are the perfect place for wildlife watching in the Beartooth Mountains, sightseeing in Yellowstone National Park, and trips to Cody, Wyoming and Red Lodge, Montana on some of America’s most spectacular roads. We have vast herds of elk and bison, big horn sheep, coyotes, deer, mountain goats, grizzly bears, black bears and many birds including ravens and bald eagles.

For an adventure outside of Yellowstone National Park, a two-hour drive will take you to Red Lodge, Montana over the Beartooth Highway, one of America’s most beautiful roadways. Red Lodge is an old gold mining town, which has grown into a picturesque ski resort with numerous shops and restaurants. Heading to the east on the Chief Joseph Highway 296 and over historic Dead Indian Pass provides a wide vista of the Rocky Mountains. Chief Joseph Highway will take you to Cody, Wyoming, where there is a nightly gunfight and rodeo during the summer season.

Our cabins are located on 6 1/2 acres of secluded, wooded land, bordering National Forest land on two sides. You can end your day with smores while sitting around the fire pit in front of the cabin. For a short outing, you can follow the private trail down river and enjoy the wildlife.

If you find that this cabin is already booked on the dates you wanted you can try calling us to see if one of our other cabins are available.

If you want to see the Beartooth Mountains and you also want to visit Yellowstone National Park then look no further. We have the best prices and we have the best location for visiting

both. We now have WiFi at the office for checking e-mail!

Our Cabins are located on the Clarks Fork of the Yellowstone River, so while you're here try your luck at Gold Panning! You might strike it rich! If you’re not so lucky try the swimming holes, most the time it's too cold for me but my daughter says it is never too cold!

If you're up for a little hike ask Zig to take you to the Wedding of the Waters, just a short trip that you won’t want to miss.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: Richard (Zig) & Mallie Zickefoose We're an outdoor-loving couple living the life we enjoy. We are both retired and love making new friends from all over the world.

Why the Owner Chose Cooke City-Silver Gate:
We found this area 16 years ago and decided there was no other place in the world more beautiful than here, we made this area our home.There are so many things to do in our area that we have found out that it has kept us young ! If you want to get away from the hussel and bussel of city living, there is nothing better than sitting next to the river reading a book or maybe taking in some fishing. You will not be bothered by a lot of people.We bought this property because of its seclusion!

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
We enjoy it here because of the great fishing and hunting. Yellowstone National Park is close by so we can go there any time we like. We also love to take our four wheelers into the backcountry in the summer. And if you like snowmobiling, you're gonna love it here. For those of you who enjoy the If you like to hike there is no better place, if you like to view wildlife it gets no better than here. Our families come and stay and it is a great vacation spot that young children will remember for a long time! We also have the beautiful Bear Tooth Mountains out our back door.
