Island Park cabin description

This homey log cabin is perfect for you; located just 15 minutes from the west entrance to Yellowstone National Park and West Yellowstone, Montana. It is located approximately 3/4 mile off of Highway 20 with a nice wooded area in a quiet, private area. Whether you seek fishing, snowmobiling/atv riding, hunting, boating, skiing and hiking or just enjoying the great outdoors and mountain views on your vacation you have found the ideal cabin location!

This 2 bedroom cabin has a queen bed in each of its two bedrooms. In addition, there are 2 queen beds located in the loft along with two twin bunk beds. All bedding is provided with extra pillows and blankets. The cabin will sleep 10 guests comfortably. There are two full bathrooms with linens provided.

Enjoy the open floor plan with a large main living area which includes the kitchen, dining room and living room. The kitchen is fully stocked with all the amenities to prepare a marvelous home cooked meal. There is ample dishware and silverware, along with any cookware that you might need. Electrical appliances are provided including, but not limited to, an electric skillet, blender, crock pot, 12 cup coffee pot and a coffee grinder for the gourmet coffee types! We also try to provide a variety of seasonings. The dining room table has seating for 6 and bar seats 2 with bar stools. If it is dining out that you desire, the cabin is within minutes of multiple fast food or fine dining restaurants. The living room is wonderfully cozy with a couch and loveseat that recline and a large Grandma's chair. You can curl up with a good book in front of the propane stove or watch a movie on the flat screen television with Dish Network or the DVD player.

The loft also has a television viewing area with a flat screen television with Dish Network and a VCR/DVD player. The couch and loveseat provide ample room for the kids to watch a movie of their own. We have provided a few small toys, lots of board games for the family and you can choose from a wide variety of books.

Laundry area has a smaller washer and dryer with all of your laundry soap, bleach and fabric softeners provided.

Pets are welcome - there is an area provided in the corner of the dining area to contain your pet if needed. We ask that no pets be left unattended in the cabin.

The wrap around deck provides room for sitting and enjoying the mountain air and wildlife with a barbeque grill and fire pit. While the adults relax there is a swing set for the kids to entertain themselves (summer only).

Cell phones work very well at the cabin. Internet access and WIFI is available at all times.

Arrive at any time, for your convenience, we have Remote Lock for our guests - you will get your own personal code to access the cabin without a tedious check-in!

Moose Crossing is open year around and is conveniently located in a central location. Your vacation home base is within minutes of some of the area's best activities. Just down the road is a public boat launch for Henry's Lake, the ice fishing on Henry's Lake is amazing with some record fish being pulled from its depths. Head south on Highway 20 to visit Mesa Falls, Johnny Sack Cabin at Big Springs or Sawtelle Peak. Enjoy amazing fly fishing on Henry's Fork of the Snake River or Madison River. There is a live dinner theater at Mack’s Inn Playhouse. Enjoy float trips down the river, hiking trails, horseback riding and even a round of golf at Island Park Village Resort. Take the time to hike Harriman State Park and enjoy nature’s wonders. This is a snowmobiler’s paradise with some of the area’s best snowmobiling accessible right from the cabin's front door; there is something for every level of snowmobiler. Enjoy over 500 miles of trail riding or within minutes you can boon-docking in some of the best over the hood powder back country riding or steep climbing that you can imagine.

During the winter, we keep the driveway plowed and attempt to keep the walkways cleared, especially on the day of your arrival. The driveway has ample room for one large trailer and 2 - 3 trucks OR 2 smaller snowmobile trailers and pickups. If your party has more than that there is a large parking area less than 3/4 of a mile down the road from the cabin.

When the snow is gone and spring and summer arrives, the area is noted for its wildlife with a moose actually being caught on photos right in the backyard. You might see fox, elk or deer and there is always a beautiful bird to be seen on a walk in the wooded area right across from the cabin.

This is a NON-SMOKING cabin. We are also under a county ordinance for short term rentals and ask that our guests please stay in compliance for their safety and health; we ask that you stay within capacity limits, read the burn ordinance and please be neighborly.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2012

              About the owner: As you can see from the photo that our family is avid snowmobile fans. I grew up in Montana and my husband grew up in Twin Falls, Idaho, where our son was born. We live in Twin Falls, Idaho where we farm and have a custom baling business. Our summers are very full, so we take the time to enjoy every snowflake that falls from the sky!

              Why the Owner Chose Island Park:
              We had a dream! We have wanted a cabin in this area for years as we have been coming here every winter for 13 years to enjoy the snow. We started coming here when we could still ride our mountain sleds into Yellowstone National Park. It seems that whenever we had a spare few days (even in the summer) we would load in the car and run up here to enjoy Yellowstone National Park, Virginia City or just to relax with friends. Some of our fondest memories as a family are on snowmobiles in these mountains. My dad even looked at purchasing property in Island Park back when I was 8 years old. We are truly blessed to live 4 hours from Island Park and we consider this beautiful cabin our retirement home! We can't hardly wait to retire!

              The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
              We fell in love with this cabin and purchased it for the great loft - the big open feeling just made us feel so at home that we had to have it! It is cozy with the log walls and propane stove. The property sits on 3 lots so there is a lot of room to play outside! All of the pine trees and aspens on the property make this cabin very secluded. It was also a great bonus that it sits directly on the trails leading to some of the greatest mountain snowmobiling in the area. Our friends and family that don't snowmobile can't wait for summer so that they might enjoy the benefits of Henrys Lake, Madison River and Yellowstone National Park! I personally love Big Springs where you can feed the fish and sometimes see a moose just standing in the river. We are avid outdoors people and with all of the big windows, even when you are in the cabin you can bring the outdoors right inside with you. I love to sit early in the morning in front of the fire, sipping coffee and looking out at the beautiful snow drifts, it just makes my day!
