Aspen House-Privacy, wildlife, adjoining National Forest, 15 min to Yellowstone!

Bedrooms 2
Property type cabin
Minimum Stay 1 - 2 nights


About the property

2 bedrooms, 3/4 bath, Sweet log cabin that sleeps 6

The Aspen House Cabin is in a beautiful and quiet rural neighborhood surrounded by National Forest, but only minutes from the entrance to Yellowstone Park and the town of West Yellowstone. It has amazing views of the nearby mountains, and is in an area that is regularly frequented by Yellowstone wildlife.

This is a smaller log cabin with one main floor bedroom and a loft master bedroom. The cabin is surrounded by a beautiful forest of mature aspen and fir trees. It is well equipped, with a very cozy and comfortable feel. It includes all of the comforts of home, including a full kitchen, large screen TV, wireless internet, a barbeque grill, and a large yard.

The cabin is furnished with really nice Keetsa eco-friendly king-sized matresses in both bedrooms. It is also well appointed for fishing folk, with wader hooks and a rod rack for fishing rods just inside the entry door.

The cabin offers spectacular mountain views with easy access to Hebgen Lake and the mountains of Gallatin National Forest. It is accessible by driving on a paved highway from the town of West Yellowstone and then taking a short 1/2 mile drive down a graded, maintained dirt road. It sits in a secluded area at the base of the mountains forming the Continental Divide, only 7.5 miles outside the town of West Yellowstone and the western entrance of Yellowstone National Park.

It is located in a small, quiet subdivision that is surrounded by Forest Service land. The Madison Arm of Hebgen lake, with a boat ramp, beaches, and swimming, is less than 4 miles away. All of the Park's animals also live and travel through the area, so it is not uncommon (depending on time of year) to see elk, moose, bear, fox, wolves, eagles and many other animals nearby. Hiking trails and groomed Forest Service snowmobile trails are accessible from the boundary of the subdivision, and snowmobiles can be ridden from the home in the winter. Cross country and backcountry skiing opportunities are also available right outside the door.

It is in a great location for staging any Yellowstone adventure, whether exploring the Park or the surrounding forests and lakes while skiing, hiking, snowmobiling, fishing, hunting, biking, boating... Almost any kind of outdoor adventure, you'll find it here. There's plenty to do in West Yellowstone too, for those not as outdoor inclined. You’ll love it!

Great Vacation!! Secluded But Not!

  • 5 of 5

This was an amazing home in the woods but only 20 minutes from the entrance of the park. We headed out everyday and found a fox or deer in our property for the week. We ere there 7 days and I wish we could of stayed longer. The cabin was very cozy. We BBQ outside and admired the millions of stars in the sky! The owners were great in returning our calls regarding the home and places to eat. We enjoyed cooking at home and enjoying the quiet!

There is a horse riding place on the same side of the street as the property, where they do rodeos and the staff is super nice Crystal was Awesome! Yellowstone is a beautiful park. A must see!

If I go back, we are definitely staying there again!

We really enjoyed our winter getaway at the Aspen House!

  • 4 of 5

It is in a beautiful location and if you are there to snowmobile, you are right on the trail. The house was very accomodating for 4 people with plenty of bed linens and towels. The kitchen was well equipped for our stay as well.

The only recommendation I have, would be to put more hooks in the entryway for hanging gear. This would only pertain if you get a lot of snowmobiling parties in the winter time.

A slice of heaven

  • 5 of 5

my husband and I pulled down the dead-end road to the little cabin at the end. They were aspens all around and a cute little deck. Upon entering I was pleasantly surprised how neat and tidy everything was. we spent only three nights but had a wonderful time. Every day we took up to Yellowstone and in the evening's dinner in town. The cabin was perfectly situated so you were not in town but close enough to enjoy it. Perfect for up to four people comfortably.

Charming, Cozy and Spotless!

  • 5 of 5

This cabin was just about perfect for our family of 4. Set amongst the trees on a back road about 15 minutes outside of West Yellowstone, the cabin was picture-perfect quaintness. When we first stepped into the cabin our smiles came out. It was adorable. Polished peeled pine furniture predominated, with a clean, comfy carpet. Everything was shiny clean and seemed new. And the outdoor grill worked beautifully (something we couldn't say about the grill at the other cabin we stayed in for our Yellowstone adventure.) Beds were comfy. There were screened windows and fans to keep the cabin cool in the evening. It had all the appliances and cookware anyone would need. (The wildlife themed pottery-type dishes were beautiful!)

The only suggestion would be for a more comfortable sofa. The futon was not all that comfy, and only sat three, so the 4th person had to sit on a pine chair from the dinner table - cute but hard.

All in all we LOVED our stay at this cabin and would recommend it to anyone.

Owner's Response: Many thanks for the review, and so glad you enjoyed your stay! The futon is being replaced with a sofa-sleeper couch, so it should be a much more comfortable situation! Hope to have you back again soon!

Wonderful base for Yellowstone and Tetons

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful cabin was a great base for our visit to Yellowstone and the Tetons. We would recommend it highly.

The cabin is located at the end of a road off the highway and is very private. You feel as if you are in the forest. The log cabin appearance outside is mirrored inside with true Jackson hole feeling. The kids absolutely loved sleeping in the loft bedroom overlooking the living room. The washer dryer was very useful for a longer stay with family. The kitchen was small but high end especially the fridge. We loved the decor, the loft, and the location being only 7 miles outside town and the West Yellowstone entrance.

The owners were gracious and welcoming. There was a lot of useful information provided. It was close to perfect for us-our only hiccup was that as a family of 5 we tend to go big, for example with groceries or clothes/toiletries, and we sometimes overran the storage accommodations. Probably would be enough for most families but just a note for those people like me who pack heavy.

We would highly recommend this place to anyone. Lodging in West Yellowstone seemed to be mostly motels or smaller cabins and we were thrilled to be in such a beautiful and comfortable home for our stay.
