Authentic Custom Cabin, 17 miles from Yellowstone National Park

Bedrooms 1
Property type studio
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

2 room studio/ 1 queen bed/ corner kitchen/ separate full bath

In the 1870s 'Yankee Jim' built a toll road leading to Yellowstone National Park. In the 1880s, the Northern Pacific Railroad completed a rail line that competed with Yankee Jim's route, and eventually forced him out of business. This historic cabin, artfully restored, is along this route.

Just 17 miles north of Yellowstone, it offers a taste of a bygone era and great proximity to the treasures of south west Montana. Expertly landscaped, this property allows you privacy without the inconvenience of a remote location. Perfect for singles or a couple who value character, history and authenticity in their choice of lodging. This is truly a one of a kind property.

A studio cabin with a separate bathroom/laundry area. The space is meticulously planned and perfect for a single or couple. Four areas in each corner define the main living space.

First, a small seating area with two leather chairs, small marble side table, and a dresser with a big screen TV (DVD's only).

Second, a built in bench on the southern and eastern walls with cushions and a large wooden table on wheels, perfect for dining or creating.

Third, a small corner kitchen complete with all the necessities and beyond: stove, range, microwave, coffee maker, cutlery, glassware, plates, bowls, cooking ware, placemats, and a stainless steal refrigerator.

Lastly, the comfortable queen bed with high quality bamboo sheets, bed side tables, reading lamps, and contour pillows.

The bathroom is separated by a wooden door. The bathroom has a toilet, spacious shower framed in rail road ties, stackable washer and dryer, and a beautiful marble vanity with an artistic twig framed mirror.

We have a new outdoor BBQ (purchased May 2018) out back for outdoor grilling along with a small antique prep table.

The cabin is surrounded by a vibrant, organically treated lawn as well as rock tiers of flowers, trees, and shrubbery. The rock terraces are well kept and make sitting outside very enjoyable.

The entire studio is yours with off street parking and a beautifully manicured lawn. Please park on the small gravel lot in front of the stone step pathway.

We had such a nice time, I really did not want to leave. The little cabin is just great for morning coffee on the porch and grilling dinner in the evenings. great location for getting away from the all the people in Yellowstone but close enough to enjoy Yellowstone during the day. Thank you Tonya for a beautiful place to stay.

Perfect little cabin!

Mostly we used the cabin to sleep during our fishing trip. It's equipped with everything you might need! Tanya was a great host.. making sure everything was good. Quiet nights, beautiful view of the big Montana starry night sky.. short, easy drive to Gardiner.

Located 20 minutes from Yellowstone National Park, this cozy studio is nestled in the heart of Paradise Valley- Tom Miner Basin. Families of bighorn sheep, antelope, deer, elk, and the occasional moose reside in the basin. A slow and windy drive up into the mountains leads to a petrified wood forest, camp ground, and hiking trails.

Yellowstone National Park is an easy day drive and Tom Miner is a great place to get away from the crowds and rest up for more adventures.
