During summer months you can hike and mountain bike U.S. Forest Service trails right from the lodge. Designated ATV trails are also available. Hebgen Lake is five minutes from the lodge and offers a boat ramp, remote beach, excellent fishing and water activities. You will have to bring your own boat, canoe or jet ski. The West Yellowstone Rodeo is within walking distance from the lodge, horseback riding is a 5 minute drive to the Diamond P Ranch.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2014

                  About the owner: Greetings! I moved from Upstate New York in 1980 to Jackson Hole Wyoming. For the next ten years I guided river trips and wilderness pack trips with horses and mules, guided in wilderness hunting camps and backcountry ski trips, and taught Telemark and cross country skiing. In 1987 I worked for the US Forest Service as a backcountry ranger in the Teton Wilderness. In the summer of 1990 I began my career in Yellowstone National Park as a US Park Ranger. I worked all over the park until June of 2012 when I retired to West Yellowstone, Montana. Currently I live in a log house that I built in Lazy Acres in 2005. I enjoy mountain biking, hiking, fly fishing, rafting and skiing along with a sincere desire to share the surrounding area with visitors that don't have the opportunity to live here.

                  Why the Owner Chose West Yellowstone:
                  This property is unique because I designed it to meet the needs of friends and family vacationing in Yellowstone National Park and the surrounding area. The area will give you all the excitement you can handle, and I wanted a place that you can return to after a long day and totally relax in the comfort and style of Montana.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  The Fox Den Lodge is not only unique because of the mountain views but the close proximity to Yellowstone National Park and the country setting it sits in. The name comes from the fact that during the summer of 2013 we enjoyed the adventures and follies of a fox and her 5 kits that built their den under the shed next door. We occasionally have moose and dear walk through Lazy Acres during the summer.
