About the Property

New in 2014, log home RIGHT ON the Madison River. 25 min. to West Yellowstone

Our beautiful, custom log home, which we call The Caddis Shack, was completed in 2014. By no means a “shack” with 4000 sq. ft., with 4 bedrooms and 3 full bathrooms, on 3 levels. We are located DIRECTLY on the Madison River on the best fly fishing section of the river! The home sits on a 1 acre parcel and is a short, scenic 25 minute drive to the West entrance to Yellowstone National Park. This is the perfect location for enjoying all the area has to offer.

We have furnished the home entirely with locally made custom log and barn wood furniture, and great quality mattresses, soft linens and premium cookware. The interior walls are well insulated for sound and keeps the home quiet and private from room to room.

Fish the legendary rivers of the Madison, the Gallatin, the Yellowstone, the Firehole the Gibbon and the Henry's Fork all from one destination. If you prefer lakes, Hebgen lake, Quake lake, Henry's lake, Cliff and Wade lakes are minutes away.

HOME DESCRIPTION:

The main level of the home sleeps 6 people in beds PLUS additional queen bed in loft provides sleeping for 2.

Very comfortable and thoughtful accommodations to make sure your trip is as enjoyable as possible, including comfortable mattresses, quality pillows and linens. We know a good nights sleep is paramount to enjoying your vacation! Open the windows at night and listen to the soothing sounds of the river!

ENTRY: Slate entry with barn wood bench with large overhead coat rack. Plenty of space for your daypacks, hats and small cooler in preparation for a day of exploration or fishing.

KITCHEN:

Spacious, fully equipped modern kitchen with quartz counter tops, knotty alder cabinets, under cabinet lighting and stainless steel appliances including trash compactor. Center island allows for comfortable kitchen gatherings. There is a nice propane Weber Genesis grill on the deck for your use including all the grilling utensils needed. There are plenty of small appliances such as crock pot, blender, Cuisinart food processor, rice cooker and coffee grinder. We have provided two small 28 qt. coolers and blue ice packs to use during your stay for picnics and trips to the market.

DINING ROOM:

Adjoins kitchen and will seat 8 people at a 7ft barn wood table with side bench seating and end chairs.

GREAT ROOM:

Beautiful great room has 21ft tall ceilings, large elk antler chandelier and free-standing gas stove fireplace with river rock surround and hearth. There is plenty of comfortable seating offering space for everyone to stretch out and relax. There is a large 65' LCD flat screen TV with satellite cable and surround sound.

Open the dual 6ft sliding glass doors and hear the sounds of the river. Step out on to the large cedar deck with spectacular views of the surrounding mountains and river. Watch your family and/or friends fishing just below while enjoying your coffee in the morning or glass of wine in the evening!

DECK:

A large rear deck overlooks the river and runs the full length of the house. There is a table and chairs with a propane Weber gas grill (extra propane provided, you will not run out). Perfect for enjoying a meal together with a spectacular view of the river and sunsets. Observe the evening hatch and the Montana moon and stars like you've never seen!

Bald Eagles, Osprey, Red Tail Hawks and sometimes Golden Eagles, fly overhead as they glide up and down the river. You will also see Pronghorn, deer, moose, river otters, beaver, and red fox near the house. Big Horn Sheep, Mountain Goats and Elk roam on the mountains above and can sometimes be seen coming down across the river.

Year Purchased: 2012

About: This photo is of, Randy and Samantha, owners of the Caddis Shack. This fishing lodge is a long time dream come true for our family. The Madison River and surrounding area has very special meaning to us. Randy's parents, Bill and Betty, came here in the 1970's and 1980's on fishing trips. Bill and Betty have since passed away. Betty helped build this house with her son Randy, and his wife Samantha, for future generations of fishermen to enjoy. This house was built in memory of Bill Arbogast. Over the past 12 years, Randy and Samantha, have been coming to West Yellowstone every summer to fish and enjoy all the area has to offer. It is our family's wish to share this beautiful and very special place with you, your family and friends. You are sure to leave with wonderful, lasting memories and great fishing stories! Please contact our property manager, Kathy Looney, for reservations or questions.
