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!

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.

Cabin by the River - Idyllic!

  • 5 of 5

There's only one way to describe this cabin - idyllic! Completely quiet, yet only a few minutes from Gardiner and the north entrance to Yellowstone. Excellent setup and perfect accommodations for anyone wanting a respite from the maddening crowd. Could not have been better.

Great place, great location!

  • 5 of 5

The 6 of us stayed the week after Memorial Day, 9, 12, 13, 16 and two adults. We were greeted by a gentleman and then we were on our own, but they were a phone call away, but we never needed anything. The pictures really do not do the place justice; it is so cozy and really had adequate room for us. Our 3 youngest stayed upstairs in the loft with plenty of room, 16 year old took the fold out couch. The main area is a living room, table area and kitchen. Had a crock pot, full size oven, full size fridge, microwave, Ice trays in the freezer, and about any kind of plates, bowls, utensils, coffee, etc . In case anyone is curious, we did get wifi just fine. lol Also, plenty of linens for all 6 of us, kitchen towels too. Decorated so cute and just very well kept place.

We spent most evenings grilling on the propane grill on the porch, making use of the bench/couch swing, the rocking chairs and blanket (really, even blankets to snuggle in!), and the little table overlooking not just the Yellowstone river but also with a gorgeous view of the mountains. Completely shaded little cabin, we never even used the AC. Opened the windows at night to hear the river and kept the electric heat on just to keep it cozy. Can’t get much better right?

Well, did I mention this place is about 5-10 minutes out of Gardiner, right off the highway, BUT you never heard the traffic as you are tucked down by the river on the side of a hill. There’s a fire ring by the water, we didn’t get to use that because of the high water, but spent time looking for and collecting rocks with the kids, personal playground, basketball hoop, and a friendly horse grazing by the owners house.

Hit the local grocery store several times to get everything we needed. We stayed 3 nights and only ate at a restaurant once. We did hit several local places and hand scooped ice-cream in waffle cones at one –yum! Had pork chops in the crock pot waiting for us after the zip lining adventure at Montana White Water (highly recommend) and burgers on the grill when we got back that night from the white water rafting. Was so nice to have a little get away in between running through the park and to have a wonderfully, cozy, comfy bed to sleep in at night with no hotel doors slamming, vehicles or people to hear.

We so enjoyed our stay and I would love to go back with family or friends. HIGHLY recommend this “little” cabin.
