Gardiner cottage description

Our sweet backyard cottage is nestled among the fruit and flower trees of the yard. It is easily within walking distance to the grocery store, coffee, shopping, restaurants, post office, and local arch park events. It is at the north entrance to Yellowstone Park, as is all of Gardiner. The cottage is in the heart of town and also shielded from the main street by the owners' home. The yard is shared with the owners but privacy is afforded by the trees. The owners' home was built in 1930 and its cottage was built in the 1940s by former owners, the Eastons. It is believed that their intent was to rent the cottage to visitors of Yellowstone, making it a very early vacation rental in this town. The cottage would be a perfect fit for two people who want to day trip to Yellowstone, book local activities like rafting, biking, horseback riding, and return to a comfortable environment to relax. Our guests note that the well cultivated green and floral landscaping add to the charm and character of their experience. The stucco cottage still has the details of its early history with the old style door knobs and kitchen cabinets, and offers a comfortable queen bed, dining area, kitchen, and full bathroom. It is clean, well cared for, and you are welcome!

Location

Car: Recommended

Yellowstone Park's north entrance is one mile from your door. Rafting is across the street. Arrangements for horseback riding, mountain biking, cookouts, fly fishing, hiking guides and much more are across the street. Great places to eat and find coffee are on the next block in either direction.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1995

About the owner: Tom and Eleanor Stone came to Yellowstone Park in the late 70s and early 80s, met and were married here. They worked in the interior of the Park for a number of years and then settled in Gardiner in 1989. They raised their two daughters in Gardiner. Outside of work Tom enjoys gardening, fly fishing, reading, and traveling when able. When not working, Eleanor's life revolves around family, friends, and food and she's been active in the community. They have been hosting family and friends in the Lilac Cottage for years and are happy to open it to newcomers and folks who want to enjoy the area.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
We love our home and cottage because of its location. It is handy to go out the door to run errands or explore, and yet this downtown property has a surprising ability to tuck you away. We love the old fashioned comfort of this historic property.
