About TJ Budge

I'm a dentist and hay farmer living in the town of Rexburg, Idaho, about an hour away from the cabin. We have five children and (currently) five grandchildren and love spending holidays together at the cabin. You're welcome to call me with any questions you may have about the cabin, and I can run up if needed.

TJ Budge purchased this cabin in 2008

Why TJ Budge chose Idaho

We wanted a place big enough to fit our whole family. Island Park was an easy choice because of all the fun it offers. During the summer we boat and fish on Island Park Reservoir, walk and ride bikes around the neighborhood and in Harriman State Park, and visit Yellowstone Park. During the winter we ride snow machines, play games, watch movies, and go skiing at Big Sky Resort.

What makes this cabin unique

We love the solitude, open vistas, proximity to the lake, and room for company.

Perfect Family Reunion House!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 26 people (6 married couples and 14 grandchildren ages 6 to 18) from 4 different states had a great reunion at this large cabin in Island Park! There were enough bedrooms for each couple to have a private bedroom, the granddaughters loved the beds in the loft, the grandsons had fun in the bunkbeds and the trundle bed. And there were enough bathrooms to keep everyone happy. The kitchen was large with plenty of counter space, but there was even more counter space in the laundry room off the kitchen, plus an extra fridge by the washer and dryer. The best part of meals was having enough tables on the deck for all 26 of us to eat together. The family room on the main floor and the one in the basement were each large enough for the entire family to gather for games and visiting. We had some problems staying connected to the internet and with the TVs, but as the grandkids put down all their devices, they seemed to focus more on the cousins they rarely see. We spent most of our days traveling to Yellowstone and other nearby sights, so did not use the water activities at the reservoir. We highly recommend this house. It was perfect for our family reunion!

Amazing, large cabin in great location!

  • 5 of 5

This house was very large, with plenty of room for our whole family. Lots of bedrooms and bathrooms. Good sized kitchen with lots of dining space. This house has everything you need for a big family vacation. We also loved being close to Yellowstone, just a 30-40 drive to the entrance. Thanks for letting us stay in your home!!!

Great property

  • 5 of 5

We had a party of 16 people and thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this property. The cabin had plenty of room for all without anyone feeling cramped for space. It was a short walk down to the reservoir and everyone enjoyed the time we spent at the water --- and it was especially nice to have access to the paddle boat and kayak. You may initially gasp at the "per night" rate, but if you have 4 or 5 families together it quickly becomes (1) nice to have everyone together to share the memory making experiences, (2) cozy without being cramped, and (3) a great, great value. I highly recommend this property for large family gatherings ---- I cannot control your memory making experiences but can guarantee you that you will have every opportunity to make them at this cabin!!

Family Reunion of 15

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic floor plan for our group. Our group included Grandma and Grandpa, 3 grown daughters and husbands. Plus 7 grandchildren. Each couple had their own bedroom and bathroom. Then the cousins, aged 3-12, loved the open loft that had a bed for each. One of our daughters who has 5 children couldn't come but there would have been plenty of room for her family too. Kitchen had plenty of room and never a problem with seating for the meals. During the hot afternoons and evenings the decks were almost always in the shade. We gathered to celebrate Grandma's college graduation and came from Seattle, Spokane, and Salt Lake City. The consensus was to plan a return trip in the winter some year and go snowmobiling.

Island Park, Idaho

  • 5 of 5

This is a very comfortable cabin, and fit our 22-member-family just fine. We were isolated enough that our noise didn't bother anyone, and yet we were able to enjoy Yellowstone, the West Yellowstone Rodeo, floating down the river, and viewing the wildlife without any problem.

I would recommend this facility to everyone.

Beautiful home for large group

  • 5 of 5

We had 23 family members we had a wonderful time. The home has everything you will need. Julee and TJ were very helpful. We left some items and Julee was so kind to mail them to us. The views from every window are beautiful. I was disappointed when I booked there were no trees - but once we arrived that is wang makes the views so spectacular! Great tv room in the basement. Some tips:!

There are 2 fridges

We ordered food online at Sam's club in Idaho falls and picked it up the day of our arrival. We didn't need to go to the grocery store in town.

In Idaho falls we picked up beef and pork for dinner at riverside deli. They also have dry ice if you need it for your frozen items from Sam's club.
