West Yellowstone Cabin

Property type cabin

About the property

Cabin, 1 Bedroom 1 Bath, with Sofabed & bunkbeds. Sleeps 5 or 6.

Greetings from Montana:

My wife and I would like to invite you to use our rustic ‘ol west cabin as your vacation home while you explore the wonders of Yellowstone Country. Our cabin is 'in town' but not 'up town.' It is a comfortable short walk to the entire community.

Why West Yellowstone and our Cabin?

The CABIN is a 5 room, one bath ...cozy, clean, private single family residence that sleeps up to 5-6 guests (Queen Bed in master bedroom, Queen LazyBoy sofa-bed, Bunk Beds in extra-wide hallway/corridor room). The CABIN is located on a large tree covered lot with ample parking; within 5 blocks of the town’s many restaurants, shops, and attractions. It is ‘cost-friendly’ [same low rental rates applies throughout the season]. Over the years we have made major upgrades, especially to the kitchen and bath, while trying to maintain the rustic charm. We recently replaced some furniture in the living room, including a recliner and a new queen size Lazy Boy sofa/bed. As the following check-list highlights, all the household and cooking basics are included. It’s nice to know; however, after a long day in the park, should the ‘cook’ decide ‘not to’…eating out is within walking distance of the cabin!

One of the special features of West Yellowstone [locals simply call it West] is Location, Location, Location. The entire Rocky Mountain Range has some spectacular scenery, wildlife viewing and attractions. Yet, ‘West’, is truly special! It is surrounded on three sides by the Gallatin National Forest with Yellowstone National Park on its eastern boundary. As a gateway, you have access to features, attractions, and wildlife only found in the world’s first national park!!

--The largest concentration of thermal features in the world. [From the cabin, you are only 30 miles from Old Faithful Geyser]

--A wide array of wildlife, including, wolves, bear, and bison.[Don’t be surprised to see bison sharing the highway with you]

--The Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone with it's thundering falls and beautiful Yellowstone Lake, North America’s largest mountain lake. [August surface temperature is only 60 degrees F.]

--Road system that provides access to the parks major attractions and almost 1000 miles of back country trails to explore.

--A unique colorful history of exploration and adventure and a multitude of locations for peace, solitude and reflection.

If this is not enough to fill your day, don’t forget you’re surrounded by the Gallatin National Forest with its own variety of attractions.

We hope you can share some time with us. In 1872, the park was created, in part, as a “pleasuring ground” and wildlife refuge. It continues to excite and inspire millions of visitors every year and is truly one of the world’s greatest destinations.

About Roger Beattie

My wife and I have had the good fortune to be able to enjoy Yellowstone Area for a number of years. I grew up being told that this was God's Country. I agree. Many of my life's choicest memories are from this wonderful area. This cabin is a real-world stacked log cabin, not just a stick-build building with siding to make it look like a log cabin. We are not sure exactly how old it is, (I suspect it was build about the same time I was, during the early 1950s). May we give a special thank-you to past guests. Your comments were very positive and a joy to read!

Roger Beattie purchased this cabin in 2011

The cabin was like walking into grandma's house. It was so clean and we'll furnished, that it made you feel like you were at home with all the comforts it afforded

Clean and comfortable!

  • 4 of 5

I was very pleased that the cabin was very clean! The rooms don't have much privacy, but for our little family of 4 it didn't make much difference. We had a hard time finding it- I think the info they send could be more descriptive. Especially cause we were driving in at night and there isn't any street lights to help you find your way.

Nice little cabin

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at this West Yellowstone cabin. The location was great (close to the park entrance), and it was very clean. The kitchen was well stocked with pots, utensils, etc. The internet was also pretty good, which was better than we had expected. There were some little quirks that we didn't love -- the bedroom doesn't actually have a door on it (just an open doorway) so it wasn't as private from the rest of the cabin as we would have liked. Also, we could never get the gas fireplace in the kitchen to turn on; the baseboard heaters did work, but one of them made a really annoying noise that made it impossible to sleep, so it had to be turned off at night (which, believe it or not, made for a chilly night, even in August). Overall though, this is a great place! Super clean, easy, and a great space. Would totally recommend it.

Great location, cabin and price!

  • 5 of 5

Loved our experience at this cabin this year! Our family of 5 fit great! The cabin had everything we needed and was really nice to come home to every night. We really enjoyed our day trips and even spent a day at the Grand Tetons. Thank you for a great first trip to Yellowstone!!!

Owner's Response: We're happy that you had a great time. We know that our little cabin isn't the greatest place on earth, but we sure love it, and it's nice to hear that other's share our opinion. Its a fun, quirky, homie comfortable real log cabin, not just a regular building made to look like logs. Anyhow, if you ever come to West Yellowstone in the future, we hope you think about staying with us again.

Cute cabin. Very cozy and comfortable. Close to shops and restaurants.

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful time in Yellowstone and the cabin made our experience even better. We were able to come back and relax after a long day of hiking in the park. This cabin was our home away from home for a whole week and would definitely come back and stay here again. The kitchen had everything we needed to whip up a meal. We also grilled outside. The only recommendation is that they provide a blender. We were happy that the cabin was equipped with WiFi. We enjoyed sitting in the living room and watching TV. It was comfortable and close to many restaurants. Very charming place.

The bathroom closet was a bit noisy but it really didn't bothered us much. Wiley (manager) was very helpful. The owner was also accommodating.

Owner's Response: Thanks for leaving a review. I was very interested to hear there was no lender. We seen to buy two or three a year and I'm not sure where they all end up. I guess that's life. Somewhere there is a lost blender secret space and they are all there right now having a party. As Wayne would say "Part on Blender Dudes." Thanks for taking the time. Were happy you had a great time in Yellowstone. We hope that we have the privilege of serving you again on your next trip.
