About the property

Cabin, 1 Bedroom + Other (See Description), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-6)

The Mini-Moose Cabin is a recently renovated/upgraded cabin which backs up to the Gallatin National Forest on a quiet dead-end street and only 7 miles from the West Gate of Yellowstone National Park. The cabin has a fantastic view of Lionshead Peak and the surrounding mountains of the Continental Divide. It has 750 sq ft of living space, including 1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Laundry Closet with stacked washer/dryer, Large Open Family Room/Dining Room, Kitchen plus over 300 sq ft of covered side and front porches to enjoy the beautiful mountain views! This cabin is ideally suited to accomodate two adults with two to four children.

Decorated in a rustic mountain cabin theme with both new and antique furniture, fixtures and household items, the cabin features circle-sawn Douglas Fir flooring with knife-drawn edges, reclaimed barnwood wainscoting, knotty pine walls/and ceiling, wood burning stove, large windows throughout to enjoy the mountain and forest views, covered front and side porches, etc. And don't let the size fool you - this is a VERY comfortable open-spaced cabin with some of the best mountain views in the area!

For large family or friend gatherings, we have other rental properties immediately adjacent to the Mini-Moose Cabin - e.g., the newly constructed Lazy Moose and Mountain View Lodges! Check them out at VRBO and the link below and if interested in renting one or more of these properties during the same calendar period, be sure to ask about our 'Village' rates!

Also if interested, please ask about our referral arrangements, including horseback riding, trout fishing, hunting and snowmobiling.

Lastly, if you notice a gap in the VRBO calendar between existing bookings which is less than our minimum number of night stay requirement and are interested in renting within that 'gap', please contact us and we'll do our best to accommodate your request.

Amazing little spot just outside of Yellowstone

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay at the mini moose cabin! The space looked good in the pictures and was close to the park so we figured "why not". However, from the moment we pulled in the driveway every part far exceeded our expectations. From a itting on the deck looking at the mountains to cooking in the kitchen and relaxing in the living room... everything was perfect. The owners were some of the nicest I have ever come across as well. They were incredibly helpful and responsive via email, left lots of good information at the cabin and gave their direct contact info for any issues. Long story short, we LOVED it and wished we didn't have to go!

Great cabin

  • 5 of 5

The mini moose was a great choice for an anniversary get away. It is convenient to many locales in Yellowstone. The cabin was clean and ready for us when we arrived with the amenities of home. We loved the quiet and surrounding views. Thanks for a great stay.

Vacation 2017

  • 5 of 5

We actually loved the Mini Moose Cabin on our 5 day stay. Very comfortable and we had everything we needed and more. After our long day in the Yellowstone Park we came home to a peaceful place just the right distant away. The cabins owner took great care of us on our stay calling and making sure we made it and if we needed anything. We can't wait to start planning our next trip but in a bigger cabin for more people to come with us.

This is our second time to Mini Moose and we love it. So cozy but with enough room for all you need. Love the large porch and privacy. Very clean and enough blankets, linens, towels. We enjoyed the crock pot, cooked ribs while we hiked! Location is superb, right outside of town and Yellowstone entrance. Had enough hot water for 6 and appreciated the washer/dryer. Only thing I wished for was a hand held electric mixer, my daughter's birthday was on our trip but we all just took turns beating the batter by hand and that was kind of fun.

Loved the Mini-Moose Cabin!

  • 5 of 5

We so enjoyed our stay. The cabin is a very short drive from the west entrance to Yellowstone National Park. It is well appointed with a very nice kitchen, lovely living area, and comfortable bedroom and bathroom.

There are hiking trails right outside the door, although bear spray is recommended.

The town of West Yellowstone has an interesting museum, IMAX theatre, shops and two grocery stores. If coming from Bozeman, recommend shopping there due to better prices.

We did a day trip to Craters of the Moon National Monument. Well recommended! A bit of a drive but so interesting.

I would stay here again.

Great Cabin!

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was fantastic. Quite roomy and VERY comfortable. The attention to detail in the remodel of this cabin shows a great deal of pride of ownership. The owner called us to make sure we had everything we needed and were comfortable. And we were. Even as the snow fell, we were cozy. We had a fox cross the yard one early morning. Having rented many types of homes, this one was quite special. We highly recommend this as your home base.
