Bills Island is surrounded by the Island Park Reservoir which offers boating of all types, waterskiing, and some great fishing.

Above the garage is a large loft with 2 queen beds, 1 bath, a sitting area and a very cool kitchenette.

If you are a flyfisher the world famous Henry's Fork of the Snake River is 10 miles to the south and Montana's Madison River 30 miles to the north, with Henry's Lake and its huge hybrid trout on the way, and of course there is a lifetime worth of fishing In Yellowstone Park. If you are a winter sports fan Island Park is snowmobile heaven with everything from groomed trails to vertical powder. The cabin is centrally located to main trails and there is also cross-country skiing and snowshoeing. Don't forget the heated garage to thaw out the sleds.

About Gary Dawson

Welcome to Linger Longer Lodge! Our cabin has given our family and friends many memorable and fun adventures through the years and we are excited to share this beautiful location with others!

From super close boating and swimming access of the picturesque Island Park Reservoir, to woodland animal (moose!) sightings (and don't forget the close proximity to your adventures in Yellowstone Park), we know you will enjoy all this region has to offer!

Thanks for staying with us! Scott and Andrea Packer

Gary Dawson purchased this cabin in 2001

Why Gary Dawson chose Idaho

We built this cabin across the street from where are family has had a cabin for years. We have coming to Bill's Island for years and just love the area.

What makes this cabin unique

The cabin is within 200 yards of the boat ramp making for easy launches. Because we built the garage with a heated floor it's great for thawing out the snowmobiles during the winter. The cabin with the separate loft above the garage offers privacy for couples sharing the cabin.

Great place for a large family.

  • 5 of 5

This property is perfect for a small family reunion. At one point of our stay, there were nine of us with room to spare. As mentioned by others, the kitchen is well equipped and having a washer and dryer was great. The bed and other furnishings were all comfortable. I would not hesitate to stay there again.

Very nice place!

  • 5 of 5

The pictures don't do this place justice. Its better in person. It is a very nice cabin. Great location. Beautifully furnished. Comfortable and cozy but plenty of room for a large group. Thank you for letting us stay. We hope to rent this cabin again. Next time we'll be bringing boats!

Excellent place to stay.

We all enjoyed staying here. The awesome feature was a garage to be able to work on sleds at night. We would rent this place again.

Really nice cabin

  • 4 of 5

The cabin is very homey and comfortable with high quality furnishings, new kitchen appliances, and nice bathrooms. And the location is really beautiful yet convenient to the convenience stores in Island Park, and close to West Yellowstone. We did not realize that Island Park Reservoir gets low in the late summer and this year the water was not the typical crystal clear water we are used to in western lakes. We would definitely stay in the cabin again but we might go earlier in the year when the reservoir is not so low. We met some neighbors who say they like Island Park reservoir the most in June and early July. But late August is a good time to go to Yellowstone because it's less crowded than June/July.
