The Creekside Chalet is a vintage log cabin, in immaculate condition, situated creekside, on our amazing and unique parcel of land in the small mountain town of Silvergate. What a perfect location for a Yellowstone mountain vacation.
This handcrafted log home has mountain charm with modern conveniences. It's bright and sunny, with large windows, wood floors, and a great 'fool's gold' fireplace! There's 2 bar chairs if you like to hang out in the kitchen, or a fabulous and comfortable dining room table set.
Our bathroom has a new 48" wide shower in it with a 50 Gallon water tank if you like long showers. It is not handicap friendly as the door is a 24" door and the floor has a height transition in front of the shower. The living room is super comfy, with a couch, easy chair, and a large rocking chair and a DVD player with a nice size screen. We do have a bluetooth sound bar if you bring music. Due to Silver Gate's remote location, with overhead power lines in the forest, power can go out several times during the summer. We have installed one of the area's few "Whole-house back up generators" which will allow all lights, appliances and water heaters to continue to run when the power is out on most of the other cabins in the area.
The cabin sits conveniently just off the highway on its large lot, with 2 rows of evergreen trees in front for privacy. The sunny, West side has a large lawn with an amazing sitting area RIGHT NEXT to the Soda Butte Creek, as well as a mature stand of lodgepole pine trees in the back yard. We have a firepit next to the creek if you like to roast marshmallows! (The Area often has fire restrictions later in the summer)
You can enjoy fishing right from the yard! There's also a huge grassy town park right across the street with a play set and swings.
The home has great views of the surrounding mountains. You can often see mountain goats to the south, and mountain sheep to the north at the same time! We frequently see bison and moose from the cabin. The king size bed has huge views of a snow capped peak all summer, and the sound of the creek comes in the west window. The large bedroom also has 2 twin size beds in it. The bedroom is on the south side of the home, away from the road, with great windows looking at the mountains, trees and creek.
This is a fantastic setting for a Yellowstone experience you'll always remember. The little town of Silvergate itself is very charming and you are close to the Lamar Valley, the best place in the Park to view wildlife. Also, the Beartooth Pass to Red Lodge Montana is, according to legendary news anchor Charles Kuralt 'the most spectacular road in America'! There are several hiking trails from the cabin, and 4 different creeks with waterfalls all a 30 min hike or less. Silvergate also has a couple of cafes, general stores, and gift shops. There are several lodges in our little town as well. Cooke City, 3 miles East, has more restaurants, as well as a fast and unlimited wifi at the Chamber of Commerce. Our wifi has limited data so we ask that you use it for simple web browsing and emailing. We also have a phone in the cabin for long distance. We hope that you will "unplug" a bit !! There is only a DVD player, (no TV), and the closest 4G cell service is 20 miles down in the Park. We call our fireplace, "the Montana plasma TV"! This place is amazing. We do allow stays of 2-3 days if it fills a gap in the schedule. We have a 5 night minimum in the Summer and 4 night minimum Spring/Fall.
We look forward to hosting you and your family !!
