About the property

House, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

Welcome to the Scott Street Yellow House in Gardiner, Montana. This charming, remodeled bungalow is perfect for a couple, with or without a small child. This historic home mirrors the rich history of the Yellowstone area. Located in the heart of Gardiner, only one mile from the north entrance to Yellowstone National Park and the historic Roosevelt Arch, this cottage began as a log cabin located in the rustic mining town of Jardine. It was moved down the mountain to 'Scott's Addition' on the east side of the Yellowstone River. As the town of Gardiner began to develop, so did the Scott Street Yellow House. It was lath and plastered and renovated in the Arts and Crafts style in the late 1920s reflecting the concern for craftsmanship and artistry of the period.

Remodeled in 2004 with vintage features intact, this one-bedroom home has a modern kitchen with wood floors throughout. There is a sunny reading room, dining room and luxurious claw-footed bathtub for calm contemplation and quite relaxation. In the summer, the Scott Street Yellow House has the added treat of an airy gazebo poised to look out over a lovingly cared-for cottage garden.

Treat yourself to a peaceful retreat. In the center of a quiet town, the cottage is within easy walking distance to grocery store, restaurants, shopping, and recreational activities such as rafting and horseback riding, as well as the wonders of Yellowstone National Park. Make this your home base as you explore the majesty of Yellowstone.

About The Owner

From 2000 through 2008, I worked as the cultural anthropologist at Yellowstone National Park. That means I had the privilege of working with the 26 American Indian tribes who continuously occupied what is now Yellowstone before it became a national park in 1877. I documented their histories at the park, facilitated their ability to conduct ceremonies there, and worked to ensure their heritage and persepctives were represented in all park activities from planning to visitor education. Many of the framed pictures on the walls in my home convey aspects of Indian heritage at the park and in the larger region. I also have pictures of the charismatic megafauna there. I hope you enjoy staying at my home. I plan to return there someday.

Why The Owner chose Gardiner

I purchased the Cottage for my home as an employee of Yellowstone National Park. Tender, loving care was invested into creating my own 'bear den' as a retreat after challenging days of work.

What makes this house unique

My house is like a retreat. Yet, I can enjoy the full compliment of vigorous seasonal activities available in Yellowstone National Park just minutes away. When I return on vacation, I enjoy the peacefulness of the house and its surrounding environment - and the splendid beauty of the garden in mid-summer. Gardiner is still a sleepy little town, especially in the fall, winter, and spring. I experience relaxation and adventure when I am there. My home is also a perfect home for a couple's romantic getaway, too!

My husband and I loved our stay at the cottage. It was a perfect honeymoon spot! We enjoyed the garden and gazebo. The location was great too- easy access to the grocery store, restaurants, the park entrance. We can't wait to come back!

Lovely home. Lovely yard. Close to Yellowstone Entrance. Gardiner is a quaint town.

Although a lovely home, I think the bathroom should be remodeled.

Very nice

  • 5 of 5

This property is as advertised. It is an older home on the main street running through town. We were a little worried about traffic noise, especially at night, however, it was really quiet after about 6 or 7 pm. We loved the location and especially how close it was to the entrance of Yellowstone National Park. We also liked the fact that we could only watch DVD or VCR movies and were not tempted by cable TV. It was a vacation away from as much technology as we chose as we only used the cell phone for GPS or picture taking. The wooden floors took us back to memories of our grandparent's home even though the house has been updated in other ways. Loved the claw-footed bathtub/shower and really appreciated that there is a washer and dryer. On our last morning, we had a buck and a doe in the front yard which was pretty cool to see right in the middle of town. We would definitely stay here again. Absolutely no complaints.
