Eco Friendly, Custom Log Lodge Overlooking Yellowstone

Come experience the magic of Yellowstone National Park. Our custom log lodge, located just 5 miles from the north entrance of Yellowstone, is just the place to hang your hat after a long day of Yellowstone adventuring. This 4 bedroom, 3 bath, 3000 sq. ft custom cabin/timber frame home luxuriously sleeps 8-10. Reclaimed lumber, true plaster, slate, hardwood flooring, large windows, and unique western touches ornate this vacation rental. Enjoy a cup of coffee or a gourmet meal on the expansive deck while soaking in the immense views of Yellowstone, specifically the steam from Mammoth Hot Springs. Let the sounds of Bear Creek soothe your soul.

Upon entering the lodge, our goal is for you to take a deep breath and let your stresses be free. It is time to truly relax in big sky country.

The Sunny Slope Lodge is located in an ideal location for Yellowstone touring, sightseeing and wildlife watching. Natural hot springs, horseback riding, fly fishing, wolf watching, rafting, hiking, even museums and gourmet dining are less than 30 minutes away. During the winter months, you can snowshoe or cross country ski from the cabin, take a snow coach or snowmobile tour into Yellowstone or head out on a truly unique dog sledding adventure.

Let us be your home away from home and make memories lasting a lifetime.

“Our goal is for each guest to have the best possible experience in Yellowstone and they can pick from a myriad of adventures to fit their groups needs and desires,” said lodge owner Lisa Coleman.

I have been a Yellowstone back country ranger for many years and am happy to help you arrange all activities including but not limited to fly fishing, hiking, rafting, horseback riding, dog sledding, and tours within Yellowstone.

About Lisa Coleman

I own and manage all of my vacation rentals to provide the special attention that each guest deserves. I was a backcountry ranger in Yellowstone for many years and am happy to help you arrange activities in and outside of the park. My goal is for each guest to have a Yellowstone adventure that they will never forget. It is time to release stress and truly relax!

Why Lisa Coleman chose Gardiner

We built this home from recycled materials found in Montana. The original building was an old homestead built in the 1800's that a farmer was going to burn down. Instead, we tore down the logs and re-stacked it in Jardine. Other materials include an old fence torn down by a neighbor. The walls are plaster with slate in the bathrooms and kitchen. This used to be our home and we loved the unique touches. Please come and see for yourself the beauty in recycling.

What makes this lodge unique

The Sunny Slope Lodge is only 5 miles to the north gate of Yellowstone and the town of Gardiner. The park, restaurants, shops, activities are all at your fingertips yet you may never want to leave the house. You truly feel out of the hustle and bustle of town and Yellowstone yet you are only a stone's throw away from everything.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"What a beautiful setting and the house is gorgeous too! I rented this place to have a xmas gathering for me and 7 of my friends. We couldn't of chosen a better place. The house was clean and well equipped and the beds were extremely comfortable. None of us wanted to get up in the morning. I would definitely recommend this place and I myself would love to stay again sometime. The North entrance to Yellowstone National Park is only a few miles away, which is super convenient. If you plan to stay here during the winter, be sure to have good tires or 4wheel drive if there is snow on the ground. The driveway can be a challenge for a wimpy sedan :)"

Beautiful south facing log home

  • 5 of 5

This spacious yet comfortable home has an open concept kitchen/living/dining area that is perfect for a couple or a family gathering. The cozy woodstove is surrounded by comfy leather couches and a huge window bench that takes in the surrounding view. The large fully equipped kitchen has stainless appliances and an eat-at counter with multiple stools. All of the bathrooms and bedrooms were exceptionally clean and well appointed. I would highly recommend this house!

Beautiful views, Great location, relaxing getaway!

  • 5 of 5

The setting, the craftsmanship, and warmth of the cabin was a perfect getaway. Clean, cozy, and comfortable, the hosts have created a one of a kind retreat. The Sunny Slope Lodge is a great base camp for all your Yellowstone adventures.

Unforgettable Stay at Sunny Slope Lodge!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had an amazing weekend at Sunny Slope Lodge. The home is absolutely beautiful. It is extremely clean and cozy, and had everything we could possibly need to make our stay easy and comfortable. The views from the house are gorgeous, making you feel secluded and tucked away. However, the house's proximity to Gardiner and Yellowstone could not be more convenient! It allowed us to spend our time doing a variety of activities including relaxing and cooking at the cabin, going on hikes, spending time Gardiner, and exploring Yellowstone. Lisa and Alexa are wonderful hosts and are incredibly accommodating. I would go back in a heartbeat and would recommend this cabin to anyone looking for an enjoyable stay right outside of the park!

Absolutely Breathtaking

  • 5 of 5

There are no words to describe Sunny Slope! We had a staff retreat in the beautiful cabin, and none of us wanted to leave! Lisa and Alexa have literally thought of everything! The cabin is immaculate and unique with the rustic touches of Montana, and so warm, cozy, and welcoming! I cannot wait for my next visit to Sunny Slope! Thank you so much Lisa and Alexa!!

What a great location...Sunny Slope Lodge was perfect! After spending the first week in rooms at Glacier National it was great to be able to spread out and relax. Everything about the lodge was great...and sleeping was a dream. We loved the rustic feel with modern convenience's...the use of the old cabin in the construction was unique. The repurposing of other items tied everything together. Surrounded by awesome views and the sound of a flowing creek just enhanced our stay. We really enjoyed sitting on the deck and looking at the night sky... billions of stars and shooting stars as well. After having our trip interrupted by the fires in Glacier National we were scrambling to find a place to stay and the owner, Lisa came to or rescue...we were able to add a night to our stay and everything fell into place. Lisa was quick to respond and help was nice to deal with a first class owner. If I ever visit the area again Sunny Slope Lodge with be my home away from home and I would recommend it to anyone. Thanks Lisa...The Viscardi's, Kelliher's and Olexy's.
