About the property

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms + Loft, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 8)

The Mountain King Cabin is an amazing place to call home during your visit to Yellowstone Park. Located in the heart of Gardiner, on the banks of the Yellowstone River, it is just a mile from the north entrance to the park. The house faces south looking into the park highlighting stunning views of 11,000 foot Electric Peak. You can literally look out the windows, or off the deck and see: elk, antelope, deer, and occasionally bears and wolves roaming the hillsides of Yellowstone.

This rustic Montana log cabin is an inviting, airy open space it's is great for groups 6-8 with a fun loft for the kids! The Mountain King has private river access shared with the raft company for you fishing buffs. Walk down the path and have your line in the water in minutes. This stretch of the Yellowstone is a local secret because there are very few ways to access it. This section is not fished by commercial drift boats, the fishing is exceptional.

Stay in this beautiful cabin, AND spend a couple days rafting, horseback riding, and viewing wild life inside Yellowstone. It's easy and all in one place! Large groups can book our neighboring Yellowstone cabins the Eagles Nest and Grizzly Den.....perfect for multi-family vacations!

Cozy and clean

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at this house. Great location and we walked to restaurants, rafting, etc. The parking was tight, but we were warned ahead of time and managed. Great place to stay! The view over the river was amazing!

Authentic cabin right on Yellowstone River

  • 4 of 5

My family loved the feel of the cabin, nice and cozy. It had everything we needed for a night's stay. Our view from the deck was right on the water and we enjoyed hearing the sound of the river. We had cinnamon rolls waiting for us when we arrived. Located just outside the north Yellowstone entrance and a cute little mountain town. Negatives: the path you take to drive to the cabin will catch you off guard a bit as you drive down a crowded alley. The washer and dryer isn't actually in this cabin. You have to go to the cabin next door and can't do laundry after 9pm. There is no insulation in the cabin so you hear every footstep and noise as well as see light from the bedroom below when in the loft above. This didn't bother us much because we like rustic living. Lastly, once fees, taxes, and housekeeping was added on this cabin was approximately $500 for one night.

Does not live up to the description

  • 1 of 5

Stayed here with a group and we were all excited about the place based on description and photos. Upon arriving, we found the place less than impressive and not as nice as advertised. We found some problems with the place when we arrived (outlets and lights not working, not clean, woodwork missing and damage to some areas) so I emailed the owner. I received no response for the entire time of the visit. In fact, I did not hear back from the owner for 7 days!

The place is very small. It does sleep 8, as advertised, but all of eight people cannot sit in one room or at the table. The walls and floors are very thin with no insulation so every sound, whisper, footstep, and alarm echoes throughout the house. When I stood in the loft I could see light through the floor from the bedrooms below.

The ad also states there is a washing machine and dryer but fails to state that these are shared units in a different building and they are only available during certain times.

Air conditioning is limited. There is a unit in the loft but didn't do much to cool the space and it remained quite warm.

We paid quite a high price to stay here and did not enjoy our time. We have rented bigger and nicer places for much less money. The photos and description make this place seem top-of-the-line but it is far from it.

For positives, the town was very nice, the proximity to Yellowstone is great, and we enjoyed the view from the deck.

Beautiful place to stay with easy access to THE Park

  • 5 of 5

It was our third time to use Gardiner as a base camp and this was the best spot yet. Amenities were as expected and everything worked well. My kids loved it as well.

Ignore the review from the donkey who showed up at 2am and expected everything to be perfect. 1star for you sir.
