About Jess Nelson
In 1978, I was on my way to Alaska to work on the pipelines and happened to stop in Gardiner to explore the famous Yellowstone National Park. I was so taken by the beauty of Montana that I have never left. Instead of Alaska, I was hired by the National Park Service. I retired in 1984 and started working on turning my property into a place where friends and family could also come to experience the wonders of Yellowstone Park. And that includes you!
Jess Nelson purchased this Cabin in 1980
Why Jess Nelson chose Gardiner
Park Place used to be a hotel for hunters in Gardiner called 'The Cottage Inn'. Bill bought it in 1980 because he saw the potential of turning the place into something that incorporated the Pioneer spirit of the West with the all the comforts of a city. I found a diamond in the rough and have worked since then to polish it into a unique home.
What makes this Cabin unique
Park Place sits uniquely just downstream from the convergence of the Gardner and the Yellowstone Rivers. It sits beneath Eletric Peak, surrounded by majestic mountains ' where the deer and the antelope play'.

Jess’s place was clean, super cozy, had everything you could hope for in the kitchen and an awesome deck...and perfectly located just outside the northern entrance to Yellowstone and walking distance to several cool restaurants, coffee shops, etc. just an awesome spot that I hope I can stay in again!
We couldn’t have been happier with our stay. It’s 2 minutes from the north entrance to the park, but off a side road so you don’t have a bunch of traffic going by your place. Also close to everything else you could need in Gardiner. The inside couldn’t have been cozier. It’s perfect.
We will definitely try to stay here in the future.
Nearly perfect in every way
Loved the location and it was very quaint and clean. There were a couple things we could nit-pic about but were mainly inconveniences which we over came by day two. But a great little place and we hope to return!!
Nothing Short of Amazing!
Everything about our stay was amazing. The house is located 5 minutes away from the North entrance and is close to all the restaurants, souvenir shops and the one late night bar that I knew of!
The house has two floors - the first floor has a fully stocked kitchen, bathroom and outdoor grill. I definitely suggest stocking the fridge up to cook since most of the restaurants are just average. The bathroom is also fully stocked and there's a space heater in case you like it a little warmer (which I do!).
Second floor comprised of two full sized beds and a little nook with a twin size bed and sitting area. There is an outside deck that you can hang on and listen to the Yellowstone River in the background.
Parking was very accommodating. There is public parking around the house and luckily, we were provided a stick holder to hold our parking spot right out front.
Only thing I can call out about the trip is the temperature of the house. We stayed in September, and the weather changed from warm to snowing to raining to warm again, so it was hard to keep the house at the right temperature. Also doesn't help when one person likes it warm and one likes it cool. Just be careful of the heat settings as it can get a little hot in there!
Overall, I would grade this stay a 10 out of 10. Absolutely enjoyed our stay and the time spent in the house. Hope to make it back to Yellowstone again soon and will definitely look to staying here again! Ps, If you're lucky, you'll be able to spot elk, black tail deer and mule deer around the property!
Perfect location and well equipped cabin! The BBQ grill on the back patio was an awesome added touch
Amazing experience! Will certainly be coming back to this exact cabin!
