About the property

The perfect getaway for two adventure-seeking souls. Nestled in the quiet and rural residential neighborhood of Tom Miner Basin, the cabin offers impressive views of the Yellowstone River, Emigrant Peak, and Paradise Valley. The mighty Yellowstone River is a short 10 minute walk or 3 minute drive away with plenty of blue ribbon fishing access points. The north entrance to Yellowstone National Park is an easy 20 minute drive.

Reclaimed logs from the former Rock Creek Mill and old barns frame the rustic yet modern ambience of this home to two world travelers. Ellen is a Kiwi and Drew is a Montanan native. Between their international jobs and love of travel, they carefully crafted each square inch with local flare and worldly treasures.

The tile on the kitchen island, counter tops, and back splash is from Dolores, Hidalgo Mexico. Rugs from India cover the reclaimed wooden floors. Framed lobster boats from the Bay of Fundy hang next to a big rainbow trout that Drew, the owner, taxidermied himself. The library is full of international best sellers and many books on Montana wildlife, nature, Yellowstone National Park, and other Southwest Montana outdoor adventures.

The kitchen and living room are separated by a stone fireplace. Montana summer evenings can be cool and starting a real log fire takes the chill off. Firewood is provided. The living area is spacious with comfy couches, blankets, and a 40” flat screen TV with Cable for relaxing at night. There is a desk in the corner for an office area.

The kitchen is fully furnished with extras like a soda stream and french press. The island is a good space for cooking and the wooden kitchen table faces floor to ceiling glass doors for views of the Yellowstone River and Yankee Jim Canyon. Behind the kitchen is a full bathroom with a claw foot tub. The stairs lead to the master bedroom. The loft is cozy with a queen bed and half bath.

For relaxing evenings, make sure to use the Weber grill and sit on one of the many adirondack chairs on the wooden porch. Or make use of the two wooden swinging benches.

PLEASE NOTE: only 4WD or AWD vehicles allowed up the short, steep driveway. 2WD vehicles need to be parked at the bottom and guests are required to hike up the driveway.

Lovely cabin in peaceful setting.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this property for 4 nights in June. It is a lovely cosy cabin in a private, peaceful spot. We had grey weather most days and the fire kept us nice and warm. Tanya was great to deal with and replied promptly to any queries.

While we were staying here we drove to the Tom Miner Campground where we were lucky enough to see a bear, and also enjoyed having a couple of deer outside the cabin on our last day. A day trip to Livingston was also great- such a pretty town full of history.

Highly recommended.

Well, what a blast we had. This cabin is amazing. YOU CAN NOT GO WRONG WITH THIS PLACE! If you stay here the house has a journal that guests write in. You must read our entry (August 2016). It details all the hot spots to go and places to stay away that god awful Chinese restaurant in town. The Chinese tourists didn't even like the food. We literally put 1500 miles on the rental car in a little over a week. We saw everything in and around the park and made friends with people on vacation, staff and the occasional local....Most people working around there aren't locals. If you want to stay in a cabin off the beaten path, relax, have a few drinks and visit the coolest place in the United States, then this cabin is for you.

A Cabin Full of Heart

  • 5 of 5

Maybe everyone daydreams about an idyllic little cabin tucked away in a beautiful natural setting...we do, anyway. For us, Yellowstone Cabin came straight from that dream. Lots of windows and light with views forever to the meadowlands and mountains--and very private. A well-stocked and efficient kitchen that was a pleasure to cook in, as we did every day. We loved the artwork and the hand-hewn details inside the cabin and the many natural history books on birding and fishing and the local ecology--it felt like home. The location, so near Yellowstone and to fly fishing and hiking opportunities, was just perfect...but after spending the day exploring, we couldn't wait to get back to the cabin to just sit outside and appreciate where we were--and there were days we never even left the place. Each night, mule deer with the occasional fawn grazed almost beside us (a big thrill for our two city dogs who thought they'd died and gone to heaven!)--and at night, the stars. I don't think there was an inch of space inside and out that we didn't appreciate or a moment of time we weren't pinching ourselves. A heartfelt thanks to Tanya and the owners. Very very highly recommended!

Great Place!

  • 4 of 5

Great place to stay and very secluded, I would recommend this place. The only drawback is that it can get hot in the summer and there was no mention of not having an air conditioner (normal there). Overall a great experience minus the heat during the day.

Accurate Reviews

  • 5 of 5

The great reviews of Yellowstone Cabin are warranted. The Cabin is perfect for 2 people. It is cozy and comfortable and has just about anything needed by guests. In addition, Tanya does a great job in seeing that your stay is pleasant.

The cabin is private with great views. Ideal for a visit to the north part of Yellowstone. Also, the nearby Tom Miner Road and Old Yellowstone Trail are superb for views, wildflowers and wildlife like bear, deer and pronghorn.
