About Vicky Holland

Mom and I near the Rio Verde River outside of Fountain Hills, AZ. I got my spirit of adventure from her. She will tell you that I was "Made in Germany" as she and my father were on an army base there in 1955. They loved Germany, Austria and Italy and I grew up watching slides of their adventures there.

I have since gone to Europe on my own, Mexico, the Caribbean, Canada. Love all those places and meeting the people that live there.

Vicky Holland purchased this cabin in 2005

Fantastic! Spectacular views of the mountains.

  • 5 of 5

This is truly a little peace of heaven on earth. The location is quiet and peaceful. You are surrounded by mountains. The cabin is very clean and well kept. It was the perfect place to return to after our daily adventures into Yellowstone, Gallitan National Forest, and Gardiner. The covered porch is a perfect place to have coffee in the morning and watch the sunrise as well a night cap in the evening to unwind. The kitchen is well stocked with pots and pans. Full supply of linens and towels and bathroom essentials. Laundry. Vicky is a great host. She gave us tips on places to go to and restaurants to eat at. We very much enjoyed our stay and would stay here again!

A little corner of Heaven

  • 5 of 5

In June 2017 we spend a week in this little cabin in Yellow stone valley. It was probably one of our best vacations ever. The owner was waiting for us with a bottle of wine, home movie, cookies, all the food staples required in a new house. The House is on the hill with a feeder for birds that attracts multiple animals, Goffers multiple birds rabitts and Elks. There is no neighbors to bother you. The scenic is spectacular very close to the yellow stone north entrance. Everything is meticulously maintained, you will find cooking herbs, oil, vinegar and every ingredient of a normal household stored and maintained. We have 2 kids, who slept one in the couch one in the floor, both wants to come back. We went for several hikes in the close proximity and finished our day leisuring at home. The style of the furnishing constantly reminds you that you are in the mountains and gives that extra flavor.

Awesome place

  • 5 of 5

Very relaxing and well equipped cabin.

Sitting on the Portch with a glass of wine looking at the mountain view was great.

Lots of animals made their appearance......

Vicky was very accommodating when asked if we could extend our stay.

Thank you

Peaceful, conveniently located, well-stocked retreat!

  • 4 of 5

Enjoyed our two-night stay. The pullout couch is not comfortable if you are needing two beds, though. Close to hiking, fishing accesses, Chicos and YNP! Would recommend to a friend!
