Overview

About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Located on the Yellowstone River and border of Yellowstone National Park in Gardiner, Montana, this single family home holds breathtaking views of the Yellowstone River and surrounding areas. Very few homes have the luxury of being located on the border of the park and river. Perched above the Yellowstone River, this recently renovated home offers the perfect vantage point for spotting buffalo, elk, deer, and antelope within the park’s boundary right across the river. Enjoy morning coffee and fantastic evening sunsets on the deck while the magnificent Yellowstone River rushes below your feet.

The house’s proximity to the North Entrance of the Park makes it the perfect base for day trips into Yellowstone.  Conveniently visit landmarks such as, Mammoth Hot Springs, Old Faithful, the Grand Canyon of Yellowstone, Yellowstone Lake and the famous Beartooth highway. If you want to explore the town of Gardiner, the house is within walking distance of numerous restaurants, coffee shops, art galleries, and authentic local stores. Fishing trips, rafting, kayaking and horseback rides are available in Gardiner, as well.

The fenced property is situated on nearly an acre of land with ample off-street parking.

About Belinda Story

We bought the house in Gardiner to put us in the Gardiner School District so we can send our daughter to school there. We live 30 miles north of Gardiner in the middle of the Paradise Valley on a 10,000 acre cattle ranch that has been in the family since 1866.

Last year we completely renovated the house and started renting it as a vacation rental in the summer.

Belinda Story purchased this house in 2003

Why Belinda Story chose Gardiner

Some of the favorite things about the property that people enjoy the most, is being able to walk to shops and restaurants in Gardiner. Yet when at the house, it feels 'like you are in the middle of nowhere' with the Yellowstone River rushing by the deck. Also watching animals come out into the meadow across the river in the evening was another favorite.

What makes this house unique

Being so close to Yellowstone Park (literally on the border) it makes the perfect base for your day adventures into the Park.

Great location overlooking the Yellowstone River

  • 5 of 5

The house was well equipped with all conveniences of home, including access to the internet, and was situated in an ideal location, a quick walk into town and a few minutes to the north entrance to Yellowstone. The deck above the Yellowstone River was an inviting place to view eagles and hawks flying by, the mountains in the distance, and watch the elk and pronghorn across the river. The owner, Belinda, was wonderful to work with. She was always available to answer our questions, before and during our visit, and emailed us with info on any current animal sightings in the park of which she was aware. We stayed at the house for a month and look forward to staying again next year.

A Perfect View

  • 4 of 5

The house was wonderful & well equipped. The setting was perfect & we saw deer & a herd of elk across the river from us. Perfect view. The only issue was the beds which were uncomfortable. With new mattresses it would be a 5 + star stay! We appreciate all the help Belinda gave us & would definitely stay there again.

Great location for visit to Yellowstone Park

  • 5 of 5

We have rented several homes over the past 7 years and this one ranks at the very top. House was clean and had all of essentials we needed for the stay. Belinda knows how to meet the needs of her renters. Thanks for a great stay.

Beautiful house and gorgeous view

  • 5 of 5

We had 5 nights in this beautiful house. The location is amazing, wtih a great view. The house was extremely clean and well-kept - pictures do not do it justice. Belinda was very nice and helpful. We will differently recommend Buffalo Bluff.
