About the property

Apartment, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-3)

Montana's Yellowstone Hideaway is conveniently located a half mile from the historic Roosevelt Arch at the northern entrance of Yellowstone National Park in Gardiner, Montana.

This cozy one bedroom apartment has been a vacation rental for several years. The natural rustic and outdoor decor gives one a taste of true Montana living. The rental has a fully equipped kitchen. All linens are provided for the bathroom/bedroom. High speed wireless internet as well and Direct TV are provided.

This is an ideal home away from home for anyone eager to have close access to the park. It is an easy 3 block walk to the entrance of Yellowstone, restaurants, shopping, and art galleries. The grocery store and post office are less than 2 miles away.

One can enjoy the mountainous views of Electric Peak as well as roaming bison, elk, and deer. Late Fall and early Spring are also times when black and grizzly bears have been occasionally spotted.

This is the perfect spot for the fisherman, wolf watcher, photographer as well as first timers to the area. Folks can enjoy the comfort of Montana's Yellowstone Hideaway on a short term (2-3 days) basis or an extended retreat.

We would be glad to visit with you and your family about the best ways to capture all Yellowstone has to offer during your stay. With years of experience with the surrounding area, we have discovered ways to pack in activities for all ages, abilities, and interests.

About Julie Reinertson

Eric & Julie Reinertson

We have been living in Gardiner, MT since 2002. My husband, Eric, has been working in Yellowstone National Park for the National Park Service since '95 and I have been working at the Gardiner School since 2003.

We have 2 beautiful daughters,Ellie & Josie, ages 8 and 5. We feel very blessed to be working in God's country and to be raising our children is such a beautiful place.

Julie Reinertson purchased this apartment in 2002

Why Julie Reinertson chose Gardiner

We purchased our home in 2002. This was the perfect location for us given our jobs. We have built on and rennovated the original structure. Last spring we rennovated the one bedroom apartment to use as a vacation rental. We knew this would be a wonderful way for visitors to enjoy a home away from home while exploring Yellowstone.

What makes this apartment unique

We enjoy visiting with our guests during their stay. We want folks to get the most out of their visit to Yellowstone. We are glad to give suggestions and tips on where to go and what to do.

Our guests often take advantage of other activities offered in Gardiner such as guided fishing trips, rafting on the Yellowstone River, horseback riding, soaking at the Boiling River, and local dining.

We provide beach towels for guests to soak at the Boiling River which is a natural hot springs area close by. We also provide a cooler for those folks that like to pack lunch and snacks for having picnics during their day.

Cozy, Comfy and Convenient!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week at the Montana Yellowstone Hideaway and were very happy with our stay. The apartment is clean, comfortable and was stocked with everything we needed plus some nice extra touches such as an ice chest, ice packs, fluffy towels, extra blankets and pillows, movies and reading material.

The space is on the small side but is ideal for two people and adequate for three if the third is doesn't mind sleeping on a futon, which my my 6'1" son was able to accomplish :) The location is incredibly convenient to the park's north entrance as well as downtown shops, food, etc. The landlords were attentive and friendly but not intrusive. It was the perfect home base for our long daily excursions into Yellowstone and we were happy to return there for some relaxation at night.

We visit Yellowstone as often as we can from Pennsylvania and will definitely stay here again on future trips :) Thanks Julie and Eric for providing a great home away from home for your renters to enjoy.

Great time at the Hideaway

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 5 days at the Yellowstone Hideaway. The apartment was as good as the pictures showed. We had Elk and Antelope just out the door. Roosevelt Arch, Northern Entrance to Yellowstone was right there. Town is quaint with good food. We would recommend staying at the Yellowstone Hideaway

Wonderful location and great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

Had a fantastic time visiting Yellowstone while staying at this property. The location was perfect for entering the park and going sightseeing throughout the day. We loved the inside of this property and how it automatically made you feel right at home. The owners have put a great amount of thought into this place and you can tell it right away. We appreciated having all of the kitchen utensils needed for making our own meals whenever we felt like it. Also, the ice packs for packing a quick lunch for the park was amazing. We would recommend this property to anyone that's looking for a great location to visit Yellowstone. The owners are super nice and made sure we had everything we needed during our stay. I know we're already looking forward to staying at this property once again in the future!

Beautiful Montana's Yellowstone Hideway

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay. The apartment was clean and comfortable. The owners were available occasionally asking a time or two if we had any questions finding anything or questions about the area. Parking was just outside the entrance. The entire town of restaurants & shops were within easy walking distance especially the Chamber of Commerce which we used as a resource. We appreciated the availability of using ice packs & coolers if we needed them.

We would definitely stay there again & look forward to our next visit there!
