About the Property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 2 Baths (Sleeps 8)

We welcome you and your family to our piece of mile-high paradise on the banks of the Yellowstone River.

Our home is fully equipped for your stay including plenty of kitchen utensils and appliances, basic pantry staples, dish and laundry soap, and outdoor gas grill.

Magnificent Yellowstone National Park begins on the far bank of the river, across from our home! Enjoy spectacular views of Electric Peak (elevation 10,969 feet) from our family room, dining room, and spacious deck. Listen to the Yellowstone River, the longest dam-free river in the continental United States. Our seasonal, backyard animal visitors include elk, deer, bison, bighorn sheep, pronghorn antelope, bald eagles, and grizzly bears.

Hunting: Miles of game country nearby.

Horseback Riding: Bring your horse! Your pony can stay in our 60 by 80 ft corral ($10 per horse per day). Please note: feed and supplies are not supplied. Guided horseback rides with one of the several companies are also a fun way to explore the area.

Rafting: Grab an inner tube and jump in the river right out of our backyard or wave at the house as you float by on a guided raft trip.

Swimming: Not for the faint of heart… Brrr! For those wanting to splash about and seriously cool off, there is a good hole in the river at McConnel Landing, a seven minute walk up the Yellowstone River.

Shopping: A short 5 minute drive brings you to downtown Gardiner with its Old West shops, restaurants, grocery, and fuel.

Visiting Yellowstone: Enter the North Entrance of Yellowstone Park through the historic Roosevelt Arch, just minutes by car in downtown Gardiner.

 

Manager info

Year Purchased: 1995

About: Hello! I was born and raised in Montana and grew up in Gardiner. I am fortunate to be able to continue living under this beautiful big sky! I enjoying playing in the outdoors as much as possible--rock climbing, biking, hiking, skiing, or just simply taking in beautiful vistas and fresh air. I enjoy cooking and trying new foods. I hope one day I will master the perfect pie crust. As a host, I am happy to help my guests locate fun activities during their stay such as horseback riding, rafting, or exploring Yellowstone by foot. There are so many experiences to be had in the Greater Yellowstone Area!

Why Gardiner, MT, USA:
This is the home in which I was raised. It is a wonderful house with spectacular views and immediate river access. This is a family operation and my mother lives on the property and is available to answer any questions (unless she's off kayaking, hiking, or skiing).
