About the Property
Lodge sleeps 10; additional rental Bunkhouse Sleeps 4
The three bedroom/2 bath (1 on-suite) Mountain Lodge features a spacious log interior great room that opens to the deck which faces a spectacular eastern view of the Absaroka Mountains. The two bedroom/1 bath Bunkhouse, available for the same week at an additional $600.00 fee ( security & cleaning deposit included with lodge).
This log cabin was built by Malcolm Forbes about 1970 as his get-away. Eagles Nest is on a mountain ridge at an altitude of 7900 feet. Its wrap-around deck and windows provide a million dollar view overlooking a portion of Yellowstone Park, the Absaroka/Beartooth Mountain Range, the upper Yellowstone River, and Dome Mountain.
This lodge offers the best of both worlds—incredible peace and seclusion and comfortable accommodations—for a truly relaxing stay. Enjoy the large fenced yard with its deck, shade trees, picnic table, BBQ grill. You can spend hours sitting on the porch enjoying the view, reading by the fire, watching for wildlife, sketching the amazing scenery, identifying wildflowers and animal tracks, taking a nature hike, or climbing Electric Peak. You may see elk, deer, coyotes, bald eagles moose, wolves, bears and other species that frequent the area. It is an outdoor enthusiast’s paradise. Be sure to bring binoculars!
Our lodge is the perfect place to relax and really get away from it all. It features comfortable rustic furnishings. The living room boasts large picture windows with incredible views, a substantial stone fireplace, large dining table, and comfortable seating. The kitchen is equipped with a refrigerator, dishwasher, range, all utensils, and condiments needed to create wonderful meals to be enjoyed inside or out.
The cabin has a washer and dryer, linens and towels, laundry powder, soap, shampoo, and conditioner. You should consider bringing warm clothes and ample food supplies recognizing that the nights can be cool at this elevation and the nearest stores being 40 minutes away.
It has easy access to Yellowstone Park, with its world famous geysers, bubbling paint pots, pastel painted canyon walls, which can be enjoyed at the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone and its famous Artist Point, the Boiling River Hot Springs close to Gardiner, and abundant wildlife including bears, wolves, coyotes, deer, elk, pronghorns, mountain goats, big horn sheep, eagles, etc.
It is a 35 minute scenic drive to the highway from the cabin on dirt and gravel roads with some steep grades (up to 15%), and 10 minutes from the highway to the North Entrance to Yellowstone Park. While the cabin has cell service with providers that serve the local area, much of the access route does not have cell service. If the road is muddy from rain or snow, a 4WD/AWD vehicle is recommended. Low clearance vehicles are not recommended.
