IMPORTANT: Please contact the owner for details BEFORE booking online. This H.A. system has trouble determining rates based on the size of your group, etc (for instance, a couple only needs the main cabin with a main season weekly rate of $1400 plus $98 tax. A group of six needs both cabins at $1800 plus $126 tax). The posted "average" rate is often inaccurate.
This log cabin and guest cottage sit on a lovely, grassy bench on 21 acres at the base of Emigrant Peak (elevation 10,960). The views from the cabins are stunning and the cabins themselves are comfortable and cozy, filled with books and interesting collectibles.
The two-bedroom main cabin has a full bath, a hide-a-bed, a fully-equipped kitchen, a TV/VCR/DVD, satellite TV, wireless internet, and a stereo. It's available for rent by itself. The two-bedroom guest cottage has two full baths. It has no kitchen facilities, and so is available only with the main cabin (the two buildings are never rented to separate parties).
The property borders vast public land; the hiking from the property is excellent. The cabins are located midway between Yellowstone Park and Livingston, Montana in the Paradise Valley. The Yellowstone River, Chico Hot Springs Resort, and the Absaroka-Beartooth Wilderness are close by.
Wildlife seen (by eye or scope) from the cabins includes elk, deer, wolves, bobcats, foxes, eagles, hawks, bluebirds, and cranes.
The cabins are available and enjoyable year-round, and have central heat as well as a wood stove in the living room and a cute gas fireplace in the bedroom. The climate from late spring through early fall is usually temperate, although mornings and evenings can be cool.
Winter conditions fluctuate widely, with temperatures ranging from well below zero to well above freezing. Winter is more of an adventure, but is unfailingly beautiful.
The log cabin has a washer, dryer, and unique outside clothesline.
For recreation, the log cabin has a TV/VCR and a stereo with CD player. It also has a library of fiction, non-fiction and naturalist reference as well as various board games. Outside there is a rustic basketball hoop and a maintained horseshoe pit. The property has direct hiking and horse access to millions of acres of public land.

A Great location for our Yellowstone vacation!
We rented the house and the adjacent cabin for our Yellowstone vacation. Our vacation included my wife, two of our adult children with their spouses, and 5 of our grandchildren, ages 9 months through 10 years. The owner, Chuck, was extremely responsive to our questions by email and phone to insure our vacation was great. The location is beautiful and safe. The property is remote and surrounded by a fense. The house and cabin was very well furnished, even with supplies I have never seen in a rental property. The location was perfect for the Yellowstone vacation. It is midway between a reasonably sized city and a more touristy city at the entry to the park. This provided easy access to stores and restaurants to make our stay economical. With all the ammenities of a home, we could do our wash daily (important with 5 young grandchildren), fix our meals and picnic lunches, and spend the evening hiking or watching TV with our children. I highly recommend this location for your visit to Yellowstone. We were completely happy with our stay and with the help Chuck provided to help us enjoy our vacation.
Gorgeous views and a great cabin!
Booked the main and extra cabins on the strength of the reviews and wasn't disappointed! Chuck was around to greet us and made sure we had anything we needed. Great guy. Roosevelt Arch was about 35 minutes away and we used a week to spend about 4 days in Yellowstone. It is a bit of a drive with the park being so big but still worked out very well. My older kids liked it so well that they are thinking of planning a trip next year to stay in the same cabin.
Paradise in Montana
If you want cozy, authentic, and breathtakingly beautiful, this is the cabin for you. My sons and their uncle rented the main cabin and the guest house for 4 days and nights and simply could not have asked for a better experience. The owner has supplied everything you will need inside and out down to the most minute detail. Loved the decorations, the cleanliness and comfort, and the views of Emigrant Peak are amazing. We spent several days exploring Yellowstone and the Grand Tetons and loved enjoying an evening at Chico Hot Springs only 10 minutes away. We will definitely be back in the future and can't wait to see our home in Montana again!
The true spirit of Montana and Yellowstone.
The views were endless. The sound of birds, and the occasional cow, and beyond that quiet. We truly felt that we could relax and take in Montana, really feel it. We had a crew of 9: 6 adults, 3 kids ages 6-12, and a dog. A great place where kids can be kids, dogs can be dogs and a family could finally have time to catch up. We enjoyed enough room for everyone to be comfortable with the four bedrooms and 3 baths. We lounged around the porch, or the yard watching the sunsets and then the stars and meteor showers. We loved playing horseshoes and walking around the property, dinners outside and inside with the well stocked kitchen. The laundry room was a plus too. The cabin and guest cottages were very well maintained, and clean. We loved all of decor and finishes, it was quintessential We traveled to Yellowstone a couple of days, it was not too far of a drive to the north entrance. We also enjoyed Chico Hot Springs one evening. We will hopefully be back!
Best vacation ever
This was the best vacation that we have ever had. The property is private with breathtaking views. The pictures in no way do justice to the cabins or the beauty of the scenery. We came with the intentions of using it as a home base for our Yellowstone adventure but decided to spend most of our time at the cabin. You are literally at the base of the mountain and can hike to the top if you start early. The horseshoe pit was fun and there were plenty of games and books to keep us occupied. The drive to the Yellowstone entrance is short and beautiful and there is a corner store about 10 minutes away that carries most of your basic needs. There are plenty of outdoor adventures close by. We enjoyed the whitewater rafting with Paradise Adventures. We came wanting peace, quiet, and privacy and we got it in spades. We had 4 adults and 5 children from ages 6 to 16 and everyone had a wonderful time. The entire property is well maintained and very clean. The kitchen is very well stocked and there are lots of towels and bed linens. If we ever head back to the area again we would absolutely stay again. Chuck was great to work with and took care of all of our needs.
What a wonderful time in "PARADISE"
We rented this beautiful property, a stone's throw from in my opinion the best natural hot springs in Montana for the Easter weekend! What scenery! What an authentic private beautiful mountain setting. We rented the cabin and the guest house to accommodate our family, and found every detail was met. We love eclectic decorating with the antique tools mounted on the log wall behind the antique wood stove. We loved that you kept the feel of the place while at the same time including every modern convenience. From the hand painted commode seat to the original art work. Loved the games and all the unique books. Was like treasure hunting. THANK YOU FOR SHARING. WE WILL BE BACK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The cabin and guest cottage are on a private road at the base of Emigrant Peak in the Paradise Valley of Park County Montana. The property is located almost equidistant from the town of Livingston and Yellowstone National Park.
