About Richard Hunt

Our family first discovered Island Park in 1960 while vacationing in the Yellowstone area. We were so enchanted by the uniqueness of the area that we decided to build our own home and guest cabin here in 1995.

Richard Hunt purchased this cabin in 1995

Why Richard Hunt chose Island Park

We enjoy the beauty of the setting, the wildlife, and the proximity to Yellowstone Park and the Tetons, as well as the outstanding fly fishing and other outdoor recreational activities.

What makes this cabin unique

We love the peace and serenity that the area offers. We can walk out the door and hike in the national forest, ride bikes to the Continental Divide and the Centennial Valley in Montana, and cross county ski and snowmobile right out the door.

Guestbook comments from the owner

To our Host & Hostess,

What a charming, comfy, cozy hideaway! You have covered all the bases with attention to every detail that visitors might need.

Hope we can make it back in Sept. Thank you for a really special first time retreat from the desert!

What a great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We had such a good time staying here. Close to west Yellowstone. The cabin is cozy, and the grill on the front porch is great. The grill has all grill tools you need. The view from the front porch is beautiful looks out to Henry's lake.The cabin is easy to find, it is very quite and private. The owners are wonderful. We had everything we needed, and then some. Felt very much at home!! We highly recommend staying here.

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

Richard was available and a great host. The cabin was perfect for our needs; we used it as our base to visit Yellowstone. Although the distance is a bit long, everything about the cabin made the drive worth it! The cabin is clean and well-maintained and very “homey.”

Charming western cabin.

  • 5 of 5

As soon as I saw the pictures and the review I knew this was the place for us. We met Rich when we drove up and he showed us the cabin and right then I knew it was well worth it. Rich is a excellent host that knows the area and can help with any questions you may have. Using this lovely cabin for our base of travel through Yellowstone and Jackson Hole was perfect. Completed our true western adventure. Thanks Rich.

Very nice, quiet place to stay.

  • 5 of 5

It is located on a quiet road with a beautiful view of the lake. We saw deer, prong horn, and a momma moose with her baby from the front porch. We also saw an eagle in a tree across the road. The cabin was clean, cozy and owned by very nice people. It is a perfect place to call home while visiting Yellowstone.
