Car: Necessary

My home is located 3 miles from the entrance into Yellowstone Park and Gardiner Montana. The house with a huge back yard sits on the banks of Yellowstone river. This home is far enough out of town so you hear no noise at night but close enough if you need to run in to enjoy some day and night life. We offer out door seating in a covered gazebo with a rock fire place, and deck over the river bank, to enjoy the scenery, sounds of the river and just the tranquil feeling you will get. In Gardiner there are lots of Gift shops, grocery store, Bars and different kinds of restaurants.

Other Activities: Yellowstone National Park is in your back yard. There is wild river rafting and fishing on the Yellowstone River, Horseback riding along with dinners up in the mountains. Yellowstone National Park offers lots of site seeing, museums, and history of the area.

Golf: There is golfing in Livingstone Montana, 53 miles from the house. Also Bozeman Montana has a golf course which is about 80 miles from the house.

Ski: In the winter time Yellowstone Park has some of the best cross country skiing around. Not only awsome scenry but the animal life you will see. You also have down hill skiing in Bozeman Montana about 80 miles away and both cross country and down hill skiing in Big Sky Montana about 130 miles away.
