About Laurie Augustin

I live locally in Island Park and can help you with your vacation plans in the Island Park and Yellowstone area. I enjoy sharing our wonderful cabin and location with others to create memories with their family & friends of their time in Island Park and Yellowstone National Park.

Why Laurie Augustin chose Island Park

Grandma's Cabin was my childhood home. We named it Grandma's Cabin after my mother, because it would never be any place but Grandma's to us.

What makes this cabin unique

While at Grandma's Cabin you will enjoy the secluded location and still be close to the area attractions. You will enjoy the national forest that is bordering our cabin. A creek that runs through the pasture, a large yard, comfortable porch to sit & relax and even catch a glimps of some deer, moose, fox and many birds.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This is a great cabin. We all enjoyed our stay. We saw many great things while we were staying here at Grandma's CAbin. I will always recommend this cabin to everyone I know. I will also return here someday with my family & friends

Perfect place for us!

  • 5 of 5

Grandma's Cabin was the perfect place for our party of five: grand parents, son-in-law, and two teenage grand daughters. We all loved it. The cabin is so comfortable and well equipped, and the location is beautiful. It's an easy thirty mile drive from the west entrance to Yellowstone, and it gave us versatile access to Yellowstone as well as the Tetons. It was such a cozy place to come home to each day, and Laurie was a wonderful and responsive host. The nearby Robin's Roost store (and gas station) was a surprisingly well-stocked option for picking up any groceries you might need. The cabin is also close to Harriman State Park and a scenic byway to Ashton, which added local choices (including horseback riding) for a kick-back day. We loved this cabin. If you rent it, you won't be disappointed.

Great location

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our recent stay at Grandma's cabin and found the accomodations to be clean and convenient for our adventures through Yellowstone and the surrounding area. The cabin is very well taken care of and I would say a solid value of about $150 a night but not worth the $250 rate that is charged during the summer. The owner is great to work with and we found the transaction through VRBO to be easy and we would use the services again.

Owner's Response: Neal Thank you again for staying with us at Grandma's Cabin. We appreciate your group of four staying with us and are pleased you found our cabin well taken care of and clean. Possibly a smaller cabin or off season would have given you a better value in our area. Our cabin does sleep up to 10 people and with the amenities provided we feel it to be a great value.

Family Christmas

  • 5 of 5

This was a great place to have our family Christmas getaway. The house was all lit up with Christmas lights - what a great first impression. "Cozy" was the word that everyone used to describe Grandma's Cabin. The cabin had plenty of sleeping space for all 10 of us. The kitchen was supplied very well with pots and pans, dishes, silverware, and bakeware. It was nice to have the washer and dryer there as well. The bathrooms were supplied well with plenty of towels. The internet connection was not good, but for me that was okay. It was nice to disconnect from it for a while. I would recommend Grandma's Cabin. Thank you!!

Owner's Response: Janell - thank you for the great review. We appreciate you choosing Grandma's Cabin for your Christmas vacation and very pleased that you had a great time. We look forward to having you as our guests again in the future. We realize that internet and cell service is not very good in our area and hopefully verizon or digis will be able to provide better reception in the future. thank you again, Laurie Augustin

Quiet Hideaway

  • 4 of 5

Grandma's cabin was cozy and very well equipped (except for a hairdryer). Our only problem was internet access not available the first night and morning we were there. The owner remedied this the second day......but we have never had any response to our exiting email inquiring as to what the problem was .......nor any word of thanks after leaving some usable food items behind. The rate seemed a bit steep for two retired seniors using only one bed on the main floor.

Owner's Response: Bob & Lenora Thank you for your positive feed back, I appreciate all our guests and their comments. Our internet saga continues. With no real explination from verizon yet. My thought is, that it was the passing storm that caused the no service episode. I am currently expecting a technicion in the area to also determine if we are just in a low reception area causing the continued low reception. I always ask if there is anything needed at the cabin and if I have it I would be glad to bring it if I have it. I hope my response was positive to your other requests during your stay. Thank you again for staying at Grandma's Cabin and we hope to have you as our guest again in the future. Laurie Augustin

Cute Cabin!

  • 5 of 5

We were hosting a family from Germany and showing them our beautiful National Parks. When we arrived at the cabin, they were so excited! The description and photos were accurate and in fact, the cabin was even better. It's about 30 miles from West Yellowstone, but for the price difference, it worked out great! Highly recommended! Thanks so much!
