About the Property
3 bedroom/2 bath Quintessential Mountain LOG home. Private and quiet w sunshine!
The Alpenglow Lodge will guarantee that your Yellowstone experience continues each evening when you return home! Our home is spacious, private and just plain glorious. Combine an authentic log home, rock fireplace , Log pool table, fantastic beds, comfy towels, all on a perfectly situated sunny lot right on the creek and you will feel and hear Rocky Mountain joy. Our location in the tiny berg of Silver Gate allows you to enjoy hassle free outdoor time with amazing mountain views, and at the same time, walk 1 minute to a great cafe or 2 general stores. This home is all on ONE LEVEL, and very user friendly.
We're at the gateway to YELLOWSTONE'S Lamar Valley, considered the SERENGETI OF AMERICA! The herds of wild animals are spectacular, and unique to this last holdout of 'wild America' !
Our home, called The Alpenglow Lodge, (formerly the Indian Paintbrush home), is comfortable, romantic, and just what you imagine when you think of a mountain log home! It has big mountain views, the sound of the creek, handcrafted logs, a huge rock fireplace, large living room, a spectacular sunroom and nice beds! We have a large dining table as well as a bar-height counter for socializing. The home is ALL ON ONE LEVEL. We have ceiling fans in the sunroom, living room, and all three bedrooms. It never gets hot enough to need AC. The private deck boasts an unforgettable setting with a pristine forest, creek and mtn view! There is a Swedish Sauna on the property that is available to our guests in all three of our homes. But this cabin has priority scheduling. We frequently see moose and bison browsing in our yard. This is an ideal combination of mountains, comfort and a small village. This home is well kept, and very clean!
In this rural area of Montana, power outages can last a day or more in the summer due to high winds or lightning. We have installed a whole-house back up generator that automatically turns on if the power goes out. We also have a propane heating stove in the sunroom that feels so good in the cool mornings !
The glorious master suite is spacious, with a king size bed, a creek view couch, and a luxurious 1 person soaking tub on the deck, (available June 15 - Aug 31, swim suit advised). The master bedroom has the sound of the creek coming in it's many windows. It is very private with its own yard and a 3/4 bath. It has fishing just a few steps away and a gorgeous mtn view from the bed!
The other 2 bedrooms each have a queen size bed. One room has a play loft in it, (the ladder is vertical and not advised for children under 12). The other room has its own sink. Both bedrooms share the main 3/4 bath of the house. This bathroom is small, but does have a spacious tiled shower. This is a great house !!
We have a 5 nite minimum stay , and from July 1 - August 18 we have a 7 nite minimum.
If you need another bedroom, our fantastic one room Cabin, the Mountain HIdeaway, (vrbo #354935), is only a 30 sec walk away. It sits in a secluded, creekside location with it's deck right over the water! It has a queen bed, a kitchenette with a single burner electric stovetop, a microwave, toaster oven, coffee maker, and apartment size refrigerator. There is a 'full+' bath in the cabin with both a shower, and a fabulous deep soaking tub w/hand held spray. It has a love seat, and a eating bar with an incredible view. The entire cabin also has one of the best views in the valley!! What a place to explore Yellowstone from !! (That is, if you can force yourself to leave the deck)
Our family's vacation homes are situated in the beautiful Silvergate valley, less than a mile from Yellowstone Park, and only a few hundred yards from Wyoming's Absaroka Wilderness Area. Our location gives our guests the opportunity to walk to the town park, walk to 4 different creeks with waterfalls in less than 1/2 hour, fish from the property, and yet be seconds from great food and gift shops! The hiking trail into Yellowstone Park from the cabins is amazing !! After mountain run-off we have a great sandy beach on the property!
The region provides enough variety for weeks of adventure. You will find another collection of restaurants, gift shops, and a larger general store just three miles down the road in the small, 1880's mining town of Cooke City. Some day trips include driving over the amazing Beartooth Pass, described by Charles Kuralt as 'the most scenic drive in America'! Numerous lakes provide great car picnicking, or plan to reach Red Lodge for a game of golf! An hour drive to the West takes you to Mammoth, the park headquarters. A drive through Sunlight Basin to Cody, Wyoming, (80 miles), is a must. Every night Cody offers its professional rodeo with great kids events. Also try the museum, golfing or excellent whitewater rafting in the Shoshone Canyon (ask specifically for the canyon).
We're confident that you'll enjoy the mountain experience of a lifetime in any of our homes! You can unwind and enjoy nature, float the Yellowstone river, relax in some hot springs, or challenge yourself to new heights. It's all here, and we'll do our best to show you some big, Western hospitality! We are now taking reservations for the 2017 season. Remember we have a 5 nite minimum in shoulder seasons, and in High Season, a 7 nite minimum with Saturday turnovers. See you soon!

Moose frequent the willows on the South side of the creek (also our land), and you'll notice a nice sand bar on the inside bend of the creek after spring run off. Our other 2 vacation homes with pinpoints B and C are also available to rent. See VRBO #352153...MoreCollapse
Total Relaxation and Comfort! The setting of our acreage is one of a kind. Our home is an experience in itself.
We're in a small mountain town, yet you can enjoy Big views, the sound of the creek, mature trees, lots of sunshine, and amazing wildlife. Many pristine hikes leave from our property, yet you can walk less than a minute to 2 general stores and the famous Log Cabin Cafe! Cooke City is only 3 miles up the highway, or take the dirt back road! Lots to do and see! Easy and beautiful hiking trail along creek into Yellowstone's serenity! This is the most wild and scenic part of the United States!
Year Purchased: 1975
About the owner: John, Kate and Emily Mickus live in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. The Northeast Entrance and the Beartooth Mountains have been their favorite place to recreate for decades! 'We just love this area, its like going on a remote backcountry trip but still having some great amenities and the comfort of home!' John's parents purchased the property in 1975 and have created a spectacular combo of vintage log homes and modern comforts. Combine this with the amazing creekside location in the Yellowstone ecosystem, and you have a vacation to remember! We're sure you will be impressed with the wildlife, mountains, and especially the beauty of our property. We look forward to hosting your family!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
You'll enjoy our family's personal touch. We take excellent care of our homes, and provide you with all of the comforts you'll need.
