Overview

About the property

Cozy mountain cabin surrounded by mountains next to the Yellowstone River

Cabin By the River was built in 1995 and rests on the banks of the Yellowstone River, 10.5 miles north of Gardiner, Montana, the only year around entrance to Yellowstone Park. It is situated on about 5 acres in the upper Paradise Valley, south of Yankee Jim Canyon and north of Corwin Springs, Montana. We enjoy a country setting with neighbors across grassy fields.

The cabin is decorated in country cabin decor and will sleep five. There is a queen bed in the main floor bedroom and a queen and a single bed in the sleeping loft. A sofa queen bed in the living room is suitable for small children. The front porch overlooks the river and offers a porch swing, table and chairs and a gas bbq. For rainy days, there are reading materials, games, Dish TV and DVD player with a selection of movies. The small kitchen offers a full size range and refrigerator. Dishes, utensils, coffee maker, crock pot & a brief pantry are provided.

The bathroom is a tub/shower combination. Linens, towels and paper products are provided.

There is a landline telephone for local calls. Wifi service is available but caution that we are in a mountainous area and it is sometimes undependable. It easily provides adequate service for email and internet.

We have a fire ring down along side the river for marsh mellow roasting or just enjoying.

In the grassy area above the cabin there is a swing set, yard games and tether ball, lots of area to run and play. Fishing in the Yellowstone River from our property can be successful and a great experience in a blue ribbon trout stream.

We are only 10 minutes to Gardiner, the north entrance to Yellowstone. Our guests enjoy coming out of the Park in the evening to the quiet setting of the Cabin By the River.

About Wendi Burke

I am a Montana native, 2nd generation (my grandparents homesteaded in northern Montana), and Warren has lived in Montana most of his life having grown up in Northern California. We have 3 grown children and 8 grandchildren, some living in the area. Warren is recently retired from the National Park Service and I manage the cabin. We love living in the mountains but also love to travel. We have been providing lodging for visitors for almost 19 years and have loved meeting wonderful people and sharing our corner of the world. We have a dog (Tillie) and a cat (Patch) who also enjoy our guests.

Wendi Burke purchased this cabin in 1995

Why Wendi Burke chose Yellowstone Country

We built our 'Cabin By The River' in 1995. For 10 years we operated it as a bed and breakfast. We are located in a small valley of the upper Yellowstone River. We have about 5 acres on the Yellowstone River. Our home and the cabin are on this acreage.

What makes this cabin unique

We love being close to the river and hearing it flow by at night. We are in a country setting with neighbors yet private. Guests enjoy fishing right here and having a fire in the fire ring by the river. The mountain views all around are spectacular. Sitting on the porch in the evening or early morning are beyond description!

Beautiful cabin with wonderful views

  • 5 of 5

We loved this house. It's right on the river, with mountains in view. The house itself is cozy, the kitchen is equipped with all of the essentials, and it was clean and well maintained. The winner for us was the front porch though. That's where we were whenever we were at the house. It was the perfect place to watch the afternoon storms move in. We would definitely stay again.

Wonderful little cabin

  • 5 of 5

We really, really enjoyed our stay. Owners were very hospitable, cabin was very well stocked & clean. Do note there are no dressers for your clothes (we didn't care). Counter space is minimal (we made it work). No A/C, but there are fans (it gets nice and cool at night, even when it was near 100º during the day). Overall we would definitely come back. Nice location right outside Gardiner and Yellowstone. We preferred the north end of the park anyway, so it was ideal for us for animal sight-seeing and fishing. Could not have had a better vacation. Only wish is that we had stayed longer and had more cabin days. Many thanks!

Great Little Cabin by the Yellowstone River!

  • 5 of 5

This cabin is a great retreat for any small family wanting to be near Yellowstone, but yet away from the hustle & bustle of town. It was so peaceful listening to the river each night! You're close to everything in Gardiner/Mammoth, but also near Chico Hot Springs and many Gallatin National Forest areas. The cabin is also very close to River Source Rafting, which we white water ragged with during our stay! Only drawback of the cabin was the wifi internet/cell service was spotty, but it is in a lot of places around there including Yellowstone. Otherwise, the cabin was absolutely wonderful & came with everything we needed! Definitely will recommend!

The Cabin on the River was a true joy! It was perfect for our family of four.

  • 5 of 5

The location was perfect for day trips to the park and away from all the normal tourist encounters. The cabin had a great view and was equipped with all we needed for the entire week! We enjoyed calling it home for our week away from home.

Wonderful nature and river view.

  • 3 of 5

Property is cozy. If you are above 6 feet tall like I am, provided beds may not be big enough for you.

Bathroom is really small and wi-fi quality is poor and unrealible.

The best features of the property is river view. In my opinion, property is overpriced.
