Overview

About the property

This is a 1700 sq. ft. two-story 3 bedroom/2 bathroom vacation rental home

Located only 7 miles from West Yellowstone, the west entrance to Yellowstone National Park, our vacation home built in 2005 sits on a gentle grassy slope ringed by forests and mountains. The Great Room offers a spectacular view of Lionhead Mountain and the surrounding peaks of the Continental Divide.

This 1700 sq. ft. two-story 3 bedroom/2 bathroom vacation rental home sits on a half acre property. It has a deck and patio with lounge and deck chairs. A garage is available to store your travel supplies, car topper, roof racks and boxes. The surrounding Forest Service lands provide a quiet setting amidst a small and sparse grouping of mostly seasonal homes. The western style interior furnishings are beautifully coordinated and engender a tastefully rustic atmosphere. The cabin sleeps up to 8 people, with two queen-size beds, two twin beds and a queen sleeper sofa. Wireless high speed internet access has been installed - just bring your laptop(s). We don't allow pets. No smoking, please.

Features include forced air heating and air conditioning throughout, laundry room with washer/dryer, satellite TV in two locations with VCR and DVD players, and a CD player. There are a few games, video tapes, DVDs and CDs for the use of our guests.

A cozy cabin feeling is created by the knotty pine woodwork on most walls and ceilings, which adds to the mountain charm. The beautiful two-story Great Room has a large wood-burning fireplace with a floor to ceiling rock chimney. The dining table seats 8 people. The kitchen appliances include a dishwasher, electric range/oven, microwave, large refrigerator and all equipment needed for food preparation and dining, including complimentary olive oil as well as herbs and spices. A gas grill is provided on the deck for barbecues. The Elk Room (master bedroom) features a two-person heated whirlpool bath and a shower. The Pine Room (queen bedroom) and the Moose Room (twin bedroom are both located upstairs. The upstairs bathroom features a tub/shower with a sliding glass enclosure. There is extra seating in the loft where the second TV is located. ]

Great homebase for our Yellowstone trip

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Lazy Acres for 6 nights while we hiked & explored Yellowstone. This home is spacious, nicely decorated & very well equipped. The kitchen, including the spice cabinet, contained what we needed to prepare meals several nights as well as breakfast each morning. The location outside of West Yellowstone was perfect for us. At the end of each long day of enjoying Yellowstone, it was a wonderful place to relax & prepare for the next day. The owners as very responsive to all correspondence. If we make another trip to Yellowstone, we will certainly check for the availability of Lazy Acres.

The house is just what we want to build in our neck of the woods!

  • 4 of 5

We would definitely stay at this property again. However, an alarm was going off outside the first night which I believe was related to the septic system. After a little bit of looking at it in the dark, I was able to silence it and it didn’t come on the rest of our stay. The WiFi never did work for us. We were able to join the network but never got any data out of it. The upstairs bathroom is in dire need of new shower doors. One of them was falling out of the track because of a broken roller which I did find after the door nearly fell on my foot. Other than these easy fixes, the property is in good condition. You can walk bare footed on the freshly mowed lawn and it’s a breeze to get to Yellowstone from here. Everything was clean and the beds were just like you were sleeping at home. Our family enjoyed our stay and wish we had another week at this rental.

This is a perfect place to stay right outside of West Yellowstone! It is a home away from home.

  • 5 of 5

We came out to Yellowstone to visit our son who works there. We wanted a place outside of the National Park to relax at the end of the day. This was absolutely perfect.

Deer Meadow is extremely spacious and has everything you need to relax, cook and just spend quality time together. I loved how the master suite is on the first floor. That was perfect for my in-laws. The second floor was great because the bedrooms were spacious and the loft area served as a second tv room.

The beds were extremely comfortable.

The kitchen is equipped with everything you would find in your own personal kitchen. It even included spices and little things needed for cooking. I enjoyed making breakfast every morning.

Having a full size washer and dryer was a plus.

The owner was wonderful to communicate with. He responded very promptly and had great suggestions about local eateries and shopping.

We would definitely stay here again. It is much better than any hotel.

Although we did have a difficult time getting in the house due to a communication issue, we loved our stay. Very nice and comfortable house.

We loved this house!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in numerous rentals through Home Away and VRBO across the United States and this house was the best yet! It was spacious, spotlessly clean, quiet and the views were beautiful. Quick, easy access to West Yellowstone and the West entrance of Yellowstone Park, a large manicured yard, an exceptionally well stocked kitchen, comfortable beds, everything we could ever imagine needing down to laundry detergent and dryer sheets. Our kids loved having their own place to hang out in the loft, this house is great for families. The owner was helpful and accommodating and very nice to work with. Nothing but glowing praise from our family!

Summer activities:

In the summer there are lots of fun things to do in the area. West Yellowstone's entrance to the Park is the closest to the spectacular Old Faithful geyser, which erupts at regular intervals several times daily. You will also have a golden opportunity to view a great assortment of wildlife in their natural habitat.

In addition to Yellowstone National Park you'll want to visit Teton National Park just south of Yellowstone Park. The Lewis and Clark Caverns with their magnificent limestone caves and the historically preserved old-west towns of Virginia and Nevada City are within easy driving range.

West Yellowstone is located in the heart of fly-fishing country. Several of the most fabled streams and rivers in the world are within a five to fifty mile radius of the town, including the Madison River, Gallatin River, Yellowstone River, and Henry's Fork of the Snake River. High quality lake fishing is also available on Yellowstone Lake, Hebgen Lake and Quake Lake as well Henry's Lake and Island Park Reservoir.

Several outfitters offer horses for hire on an hourly or daily basis on their nearby private lands. Or licensed local outfitters can take your party into the back country of Yellowstone Park, or the surrounding National Forest Service land.

Fall activities:

The fall, with its beautiful foliage, is a great time to visit Yellowstone Park. The energizing cooler temperatures make more strenuous activities such as hiking a lot more fun. There are fewer visitors in the Park making the experience more intimate and peaceful.

The late fall is also hunting season and West Yellowstone offers a great point of access for successful elk and deer hunting.

Winter activities:

Snowmobiling can be enjoyed both inside and outside of the Park. For snowmobiling inside the park a guide is required. West Yellowstone is called the snowmobiling capital of the world, and close-by Island Park offers additional access to nearly 1,000 miles of groomed trails. The snowmobile trail system is less than a half mile away. You can leave the vacation home on your snowmobile and arrive at the trail head within minutes and spend a full day on local trails. If you prefer to sit back and relax, a great way to view Yellowstone Park in winter is to make an excursion in a snow coach. It's a lot warmer but equally scenic!
