About kathy J Neil

Raised in Menan Idaho, husband in Ogden,Utah.

Enjoy traveling and just being together.

We have 3 children and 10 grandchildren. As a child we visited and fished in the area and have great memories. We wanted our children to have those same memories of being together.

kathy J Neil purchased this cabin in 2005

Why kathy J Neil chose Idaho

We wanted a place where our children and grandchildren could come and not have to pay the high Island Park rates. We want to try and stay within affordable rates for other families to enjoy our cabin too. Renting provides us a way to pay for it.

What makes this cabin unique

We enjoy the seclusion of the area. We have great neighbors that have become our friends. It is quiet area and everyone likes it that way.

We love to see the squirrels at work and the visitation of maybe a fox, deer or even moose. There have been bear seen by the neighbors a few years ago, but I have never seen one. I also love to see all the different birds and hear them calling to one another. Most of all I love to hear my grandchildrens laughter and see them enjoy 'camping and wennie roasts'.

Great place for family

  • 5 of 5

Our stay here at Niel's roost was pleasant. Kathy was a great absintee host. She was always quick to answer my texts with any question we may have. The proximity to Yellowstone's entrance was good. We were able to be in the park in good time. I recommend this place for any family get together.

Perfect cabin for our Yellowstone trip!

  • 5 of 5

This cabin was great for our family! We used this as our home base while visiting Yellowstone. It was only about 20-25min from West Yellowstone entrance. The cabin was tucked in the woods and was very peaceful after long and busy days. There was plenty of room for cooking, eating, lounging and sleeping. We would definitely stay here again. The home owner was always just a phone call away to answer any questions about the property. The only set back was that the hot water in the shower upstairs would not get warm but the owner stated this will be taken care of for future guests. One potential annoyance would be that there is some construction being done next door.

Overall, fantastic stay!!!

Great cabin!

  • 5 of 5

2 families with 4 college students stayed comfortably while visiting Yellowstone. Don't use your GPS though (or OnStar) you will get lost. Kathy's directions are what to follow. We hope to be back some day.

Beautiful, clean, and close to Yellowstone

  • 5 of 5

Cabin was perfect for our family. 1st floor master bedroom was perfect for my aging parents, and there was plenty of space for my family and my sister's family upstairs. It was my family's first trip to Yellowstone, and possibly my parents last and this place really helped bring us together.

Nearest Point of Interest
Neils Nest

Scenic views of nearby Yellowstone Park, Mesa Falls. Fishing in many areas including Henrys Lake.

The Google Map is wrong and does not show our road. We are a secluded area with no neighbors on adjoining lots. The air is clean and the stars at night are splendid. There are the birds and animals that frequent the area. The cabin is very clean and cared for. We have durable swings and a firepit for family gatherings. Please bring own wood if you plan on using firepit.

We are pet friendly (If you keep your pet with you at all times and clean up after them).
