"We just got back from a week in Island Park. The cabin was very nice and had plenty of room for my family of 8. We even had some friends come visit from Utah and there was room for them as well. Not a condemnation on this particular cabin, just some friendly advise....the cabin is fairly remote. Its about 40 minutes from Yellowstone's west entrance (and Yellowstone is gigantic to drive through). It seemed like every single day, we were in the car for several hours just to check out the local scene.
One negative aspect of the cabin is the EXTREMELY poor internet service. Now, I know what you're saying. "Unplug and get out into nature". And we did. But at the end of the night, your kids wanna check their Facebook and you might need do some banking, etc. But every single day we used the internet, it was non functional in the evening. The cabin uses HughesNET satellite internet and HughesNET has a hard data cap. Once you exceed that limit, the internet just stops working. The current internet capacity at this cabin is 250MB/day. I thought that would be plenty, but as I mentioned, every single day, it was exhausted before dinner time and my kids constantly complained. I'd recommend the owner upgrading the service a little. We even brought an AT&T MiFi with us, but due to the remoteness of the cabin, we only received 1 bar of signal. It was usable, but just barely.
We had a female moose and twin babies come right up to the back of the cabin. It kind of startled me at first, but my kids thoroughly enjoyed seeing a moose up close. We also saw a great horned owl one night near the fire place.
One final piece of information that is just for information's sake. The cabin does not have air conditioning. It does have heat. And there are only a few weeks out of the year where a/c might be useful. We went late in June and only a few days did the cabin get into the high 70s. It gets very cool at night, so we just opened the windows. But maybe in late July and August, it might get a little toasty in the cabin during the day.
All in all, we enjoyed the cabin."

"This cabin was perfect for our family vacation in the area. It is in a great location to take advantage of all the area attractions and activities. The cabin was very comfortable for our family and well stocked with everything we needed. The owner, Rich, is very friendly and helpful. He gave us detailed directions with easy to spot landmarks that got us there without any problems late at night in the dark. We highly recommend this cabin and hope to stay there again next time we're in the area."
