About Melodie and Gary Vitale

I had been fishing here for about 7-8 years and finally decided to buy a cabin. Beautiful area. Lots of outdoor things to do.

Melodie and Gary Vitale purchased this cabin in 2011

Why Melodie and Gary Vitale chose Island Park

It is a very nice rustic log cabin which attracted me from the beginning. It is well located for fishing the rivers and streams around this area and is also ideally located for adventures in Yellowstone Park.

What makes this cabin unique

Superb location for fly fishing, hiking and all outdoor activities. Beautiful lake view from deck to enjoy while at home. Short drive (15 minutes) to West Yellowstone and Yellowstone National Park.

Great Yellowstone Location

  • 5 of 5

Our group really enjoyed this cabin. We have stayed in many VRBO and RCI properties over the years, but we have never seen a cabin or condo so well stocked. It had everything you could have imagined. The location was wonderful if you want a quiet, peaceful location only 15 minutes from Yellowstone. The view from the front deck was stunning. Pictures doesn't do it justice. It was wonderful. We had a instance where we had to call the owner and she returned my call within 15 minutes. Would recommend this property to anyone. Thanks for letting us enjoy your cabin.

Perfect location with all the Comforts of home

  • 5 of 5

We cannot describe the beauty that surrounded us here. We have been here before but we're not able to enjoy all that God has created around us. This was an ideal location being just minutes from Yellowstone and convenient to Island Park and surrounding areas for great food and fun.

Best VRBO we have been to!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this cabin!

1. It is bright. There is plenty of natural light in the cabin that makes it a warm, inviting place to relax. It was the perfect place to come after a long day in Yellowstone. It is clean, well laid out, and easy to navigate. The view is amazing and the deck is a great place to relax.

2. It is well stocked. You can't see this in the pictures, but it makes a huge difference when you are staying here for a week. There were plenty of paper towels, TP, sugar, basic food needs, cooking pans/dishes/utensils. The kitchen is so well laid out it is easy to work in and to find what you need. This cabin is very functional, which makes a big difference over every other VRBO we have stayed at.

3. It is perfectly located. Only 15 min out of Yellowstone, but far enough away from the business of West Yellowstone that it feels like you are a million miles away. We say the Tetons on a day trip and enjoyed Yellowstone each day. Great base of operations for a family enjoying the National Park.

We HIGHLY recommend this cabin!!!

Wonderful home!

  • 5 of 5

We had seven of our family share the home and there was plenty of room. The beds were comfortable and the kitchen is FULLY equipped with utensils and plenty of spices. The best of all was spending time in the morning drinking coffee on the front deck overlooking Henry Lake. It is only 15 minutes to West Yellowstone and is sooo much better than staying in a hotel like we did on our last visit.

Clean & comfortable with beautiful views

  • 5 of 5

This clean, comfortable, charming cabin was about 15 min from West Yellowstone & had a great view of Lake Henry & the mountains from the front windows & porch. Many supplies were provided such as plenty of towels, extra bedding, fold-up table that seats 8, extra folding chairs (6 or 7), all kinds of kitchen gadgets & equipment (crock pot 😊?) & even some consumables that I didn't expect. The cabin charm was lovely & our kids enjoyed sleeping & hanging out in the loft. The owners were also great to work with. This was a terrific home to stay in!

Well Worth the Stay

  • 5 of 5

This property was just as stated. It worked great for our family of 8. It was cozy and made you feel like you were at home. We spent most of our time in Yellowstone and a few days of rest at the cabin. It was a great place to look forward to coming back to at the end of a long day. Was a well taken care of cabin. The view across the lake was beautiful. I would definitely use the Vitale' place again.
