                  Year Purchased: 2012

                  About: This photo is of the owners, Randy and Samantha. This fishing lodge is a long time dream come true for our family. The Madison River and surrounding area has very special meaning to us. Randy's parents, Bill and Betty, came here in the 1970's and 1980's on fishing trips. Bill and Betty have since passed away. Betty helped build this house with her son Randy, and his wife Samantha, for future generations of fishermen to enjoy. This house was built in memory of Bill Arbogast. Over the past 12 years, Randy and Samantha, have been coming to West Yellowstone every summer to fish and enjoy all the area has to offer. It is our family's wish to share this beautiful and very special place with you, your family and friends. You are sure to leave with wonderful, lasting memories and great fishing stories! Please contact our property manager, Kathy Looney, for reservations or questions.

                  Why West Yellowstone:
                  We bought this acre of land in 2012 and built the house in 2013/2014. We put a lot of thought into designing this home and we are sure you will really enjoy your stay here. It is the perfect stretch for fishing the river and has easy access to the house from the road. Yellowstone National Park is just 30 minutes away.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  This house is so much better in person. It's impossible to photograph the feel of this place, the enormousness of the mountains, the sound of the river, the clean fresh smell of the air. When inside the house, with all windows closed, it is very quiet. All the interior walls are insulated so you don't hear that there are many people staying in the house. It is very private, built to face the face the river. Every room in the house has a spectacular view, even the front porch.
