Great Location to Yellowstone

  • 4 of 5

The home was a great location to travel to the West Entrance of Yellowstone. It was a comfortable place to stay. Big bedrooms. Separate location over the garage was huge. Open dining, living room, and kitchen setup, which was nice for getting together as a group. Overall served our purpose of traveling to the sites we wanted to see this summer.

As advertised

  • 5 of 5

Nice home about 20 minutes away from the west entrance to Yellowstone. Plenty of room for our family of 7 (and then some!). Kitchen had everything we needed to cook all of our meals, plenty of bathroom space and hot water. My father uses a walker and it was completely accessible for him (main floor bedroom and bath with no stairs to get into the main house). Cabin decor, nothing fancy. Just what we needed for family mealtime, games and being together. No wifi, but we had data accessible on our devices (very little available in the National park, but we were able to share our pictures once we got back to this house). We would come back.

family fun getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at this cabin!! It was close enough to Yellowstone and we even saw wildlife on our way into the park which made the drive better. The cabin was clean and had everything we needed for an enjoyable stay. Would do it again in a heartbeat!!

Comfortable Home and Convenient Location

  • 5 of 5

We booked this property on very short notice after another rental agreement fell though. Gary responded quickly to my initial inquiry and to all of my followup questions. The location was perfect for visiting Yellowstone and the Tetons. We stayed for a week in May and were very pleased. The house is clean and comfortable and an easy drive to Yellowstone. We did not use the space above the garage but did peek in and it looked clean and comfortable as well. The drive to the Tetons is a couple of hours but worth it. Mesa Falls are nearby as well - about 30 or 40 minutes - and are beautiful. There is a small grocery very close that is well stocked with essentials. The Subway has limited hours - at least in May - and Connie's had not yet opened for the season. Cafe Sabor is just a mile or so up the road and has great Mexican Food and a very friendly staff. I'm so glad we ended up here.

This cabin is 20 minutes from the West Yellowstone Park and is a super location for your Yellowstone and Grand Teton Park loop adventure. Island Park is world renowned for its fly fishing with several blue ribbon trout streams and lakes within 20 minutes. Island Park Reservoir is a great location for all your water sports. Golf Course is right across the street. The Centennial Mountains offer superb hiking and mountain biking opportunities. Winter sports include snowmobiling right out the front door, snowshoeing, and cross country skiing.

This cabin is only 20 miles from West Yellowstone Montana and the West Yellowstone airport should you chose to fly in there.

The cabin is actually less than 1/10th of a mile to a nice restaurant and bar, small grocery store, gas station, subway, and an outdoor sports rental and golf course.
