A perfectly situated cabin in the middle of Paradise Valley, where you can gaze at the night stars in the peaceful serenity of the Emigrant Gulch.

This is a nice, cozy cabin. Sarah is a most accommodating host, and cared about the enjoyment of our stay. She is a wealth of knowledge about Yellowstone Park and the Chico Springs area! We want to try and plan a trip for all of our Children and Grandchildren, and are hoping to rent all of her cabins when the 3rd. is finished.
I would recommend any of the cabins that Sarah has for rent.
Cozy cabin with all your needs attended to
Homestead Cabin was delightful. Everything you thought you might need or want Sarah has provided. That includes her warm and gracious self. We hiked and cooked and relaxed. There are bluebirds and bunnies to visit with and deer wandering each evening. Organic linens and down duvets make the beds heavenly. What a great valley and charming cabin. We will definitely recommend this and return
We stayed here so we could go to nearby Chico Hot Spring, but we liked the cabin so well that we decided to forego going to Chico where the crowd was dense on Easter weekend. The cabin had everything we wanted, except maybe a TV/DVD. The host was great.
True Cfratsmanship and don't rush out to Yellowstone
My wife and myself stayed with Sarah 2 very short nights in October. We had a guided fishing tour on the Madison River and a guided your of Yellowstone. While Ennis was a very nice little town in the Madison Valley and Yellowstone was something to see, it is our first national park and all; but there is something very special about The Paradise Valley. The people, the views, the gravel roads and not to mention the history, this area has a very magical pull to our hearts. And staying at Sarah's truly amazing cabin didn't hurt none. I was blown away by the attention to detail, and the beauty of the chinking and woodworking; even down to the horseshoe handles on the ladder leading to the loft, truly awesome. So your next trip to Montana, take your time in Emigrant and Chico, take a drive out Colin Rd & Chico Cemetery Rd at sundown, fish the Yellowstone and go horseback riding; don't rush to Yellowstone as fast as everyone does, you'll miss a very special place.
My family of four(kids 11 and 8 years old) stayed in the Schoolhouse for three nights and absolutely loved our time there. The cabin was unbelievable and restored with class and detail! We spent the mornings in the Hot Springs and the evenings fishing and delicious local eating. Sarah was an unbelievable host with great knowledge of the area and extremely welcoming. We loved listening to her stories and she had great advice on things to do around Chico. Thanks so much for the great getaway!
A little piece of heaven
My fiancé and I stayed in the homestead cabin and it by far has been one of my favorites! It was the perfect home away from home. Everything thing was perfect and Sarah the owner made us feel right at home. We can't wait to go back!
