Property description

This 4,000 square foot 3 level home has a beautiful back yard and casual, friendly feel. It is just a few minutes to the North Entrance of Yellowstone Park! This part of Montana is where the buffalo roam and mountain vistas abound. Our home is a perfect base for your large family gatherings and adventures into Yellowstone.

The kitchen is large with 2 full size ovens, dishwasher, large refrigerator, ice maker, microwave, gas stove top, 2 toasters, 3 coffee pots, pots and pans, utensils, dinner ware and lots of counter space for many cooks to make light work. There is also an additional refrigerator in the garage to provide plenty of food storage.

The dining area has 2 tables with chairs all around for all to share their adventures of the day while enjoying a hearty meal. There is additional seating at the high kitchen counter and at the antique drop-leaf table, made by my dad's great uncle Reese.

Relax in the rec room with Wi-Fi, internet TV, Wii gaming or enjoy a game of pool or air hockey. In the family room upstairs are many game boards and card games, as well as books for all ages.

Play a game of croquette or bocce outside in the large back yard with the fruit trees. A large propane grill is outside waiting for you to make the most delicious BBQs. Take your delicious meal and enjoy it on the spacious deck in the outdoor chairs and tables.

When the evening has come to an end and you are ready to retire there are 6 bedrooms with 4 queen beds, 1 king bed and 10 twins, as well as cribs and airbeds with all the linens provided. There are 4 1/2 bathrooms with shampoo/conditioner as well as towels. This house can handle your needs.

Gardiner is the North Entrance to Yellowstone National Park; the very first national park in the World and the largest geyser basin in existence! Many outdoor activities are close by, including but not limited to exciting white water rafting along the Yellowstone River, taking in breathtaking views along the many hiking trails in the area, and even lounging comfortably in the Boiling River. Chico Hot Springs Resort, where you can enjoy swimming in a steamy spring fed pool and a superb 5 star meal, is just 30 minute drive away. Come visit Yellowstone, one of the most beautiful places on earth, and "Be Our Guest!"

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1995

About the owner: We are a family of 7 just entering the fledgeling stage. Our 2 oldest are in college, with the youngest soon to be in high school! We enjoy our church fellowship. If you are interested, the Gardiner Community Church is a wonderful place to worship.

Why the Owner Chose Gardiner:
We built our house to suit our family in 2004, and we love to share this wonderful place with others. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Walking everywhere in town, watching the wildlife in our yard as well as across the Yellowstone River in the Park (Yellowstone Park) as well as hiking and cross-country skiing are things we enjoy doing here in Gardiner. Compared to other gateway communities, Gardiner is quiet and very enjoyable in the summer months in the evening. We particularly enjoy eating dinner out on our deck and enjoying a cup of coffee in the morning or glass of wine in the evening.
