Nestled in the heart of the Gallatin mountain range, the Stermitz Ranch has been in our family since 1900. We hope that you enjoy the area as much as we do! Our cozy cabin offers the best of both worlds- all of the peace and seclusion for a truly relaxing vacation, yet still located only minutes from the North Entrance to Yellowstone National Park and the shops and restaurants of Gardiner. This newly renovated cabin is situated on a hill overlooking a beautiful mountain meadow surrounded by fir trees, willows, and aspens with amazing mountain views. Enjoy viewing the elk, deer, coyotes, bald eagles and occasionally moose, wolves, and bears who frequent the vast open spaces that the ranch has to offer. Horses, cows, and chickens also call this breathtaking place home. Begin your day with farm fresh eggs delivered to you upon request (our sons charge $5/dozen). Spend time befriending the horses and then let them take you on a memorable ride to the top of the mountain! We also have a Zip Line available on the ranch (ages 5 and up) as well as Whitewater Rafting on the nearby Yellowstone River.
Our new cabin is the perfect place to relax. The living room boasts large picture windows with incredible views, and a patio door opening to a large covered porch, vaulted ceiling (with beams from a local historic bridge), a large gas fireplace, and comfortable seating. The kitchen is fully equipped with a microwave, refrigerator, dishwasher, range, and all utensils needed to create wonderful meals to be enjoyed inside or out on the covered porch.
The covered porch, which is equipped with a gas grill and outdoor dining set, is the perfect area for barbecues, viewing the abundant wildlife, and watching the incredible sunsets while sipping a glass of wine. Relax and enjoy the cool evening breezes on a hot summer day. The backyard offers lots of room for setting up a badminton game, volleyball, or horseshoes.
The cabin has four bedrooms and three bathrooms. It offers two master suites each with a king-sized bed and a private bath, and two additional rooms. One of the rooms has a bunk bed, and the other room has a bunk bed and an additional full bed. The bunk rooms share a bathroom. The cabin sleeps 8-10 people.
Our cabin is located 20 minutes from Yellowstone Park, 30 minutes from Chico Hot Springs, 10 minutes from world-class fishing on the Yellowstone River, and mere minutes from horseback riding with us on the Stermitz Ranch. In the winter you can cross-country ski and snowshoe from the back door. We are also only 2 hours from snowmobiling in the world-renowned Cooke City area. If you prefer a more laid back vacation, you can spend hours sitting on the porch drinking coffee, reading by the fire, viewing wildlife, sketching the amazing scenery, identifying wildflowers and animal tracks, petting the horses and colts, taking a nature hike from your back door, taking a zip line tour or whitewater rafting.
We are sure that your Yellowstone area vacation will be a unique and memorable experience. We look forward to meeting you!
