House is equipped with high-speed internet, telephone, and washer/dryer. Child-friendly features include a “Pack ’N Play,” a booster seat, some toys and kid’s books, a safety gate on the stairs and a fenced yard. There is a running track and large fenced playground at the Gardiner public school, a 2-3 minute walk from the house.
Park Headquarters at Mammoth is five miles south. From Mammoth (the only Park road open to cars in winter) it continues east across Yellowstone’s “northern tier” to Tower, the Lamar Valley, and Cooke City. This area is arguably the best wildlife viewing in the entire Yellowstone country, where patient visitors often see wolves, bears, elk, bison, coyotes, and a wide variety of other animals and birds, (especially from mid-April through mid-June and in late autumn through the winter months). When other Yellowstone highways open in the spring, roads from Mammoth lead south to Norris, Canyon, Dunraven Pass, Lake, Old Faithful, West Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Park. The 11,000 foot-high Beartooth Highway to the northeast is the last road to be plowed, and is reached via Cooke City.
In spring, late fall, and winter, elk deer and bison and other wildlife are commonly seen in Gardiner, often from the house, and at times, even in the yard. Winter months here are some of our favorites. While Gardiner rarely has deep snow, Mammoth is five miles and 1,000 feet higher; Jardine is six miles and 1,200 feet higher; and Cooke City is 3,000 feet higher, so abundant snow can generally be found nearby. These higher elevations provide vast cross-country ski touring and snowshoeing opportunities. Ice skating is available at the Mammoth Motor Inn, where visitors may also board heated snow coaches for over-snow tours deep into the Yellowstone.

Year Purchased: 2005
About: We have lived our entire lives in the West and for several decades in the Greater Yellowstone—first in Grand Teton National Park where Rick served seven seasons as National Park Service climbing ranger and Mary Lee began her watercolor art career. Following graduate school, we moved to Montana to teach college and raise a family, and later took over management of the fledgling Yellowstone Institute where we lived and worked at the Buffalo Ranch in the magnificent Lamar Valley. During that time, Rick became the principal founder and first president of the Greater Yellowstone Coalition. In 2005, we sold our ranchland in the Madison Valley to the U.S. Forest Service and bought and renovated the home in Gardiner. We especially like being in town, 100 yards from the Park boundary, but still in a long-established community where one can live immediately adjacent to the lands of Yellowstone.
Why Gardiner, MT, USA:
We chose to acquire and renovate a house in the long-established town of Gardiner, because its as close as one can live to the “northern tier” of Yellowstone to which we’re so attached.
