About the Property

Log Home, 3 Bedrooms + Loft, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Preferred rental periods during the summer months are for a minimum of six nights but four night minimum will be considered during the off season. The Yellowstone River Retreat Vacation Home was built in 2005 and is a cozy log home sitting on 25 acres in the Paradise Valley. The home site overlooks and has access to the Yellowstone River. Directly out the front cathedral windows are trees and brush along the river that provide a bird and animal sanctuary!

The full front view faces southwest towards the Gallatin Mountain Range with a view to the south of the northern mountains of Yellowstone National Park. Trails down to the river provide privacy and excellent Blue Ribbon fishing opportunities right out the front door! In the summer months the lower water levels provide a trout pond where osprey and bald eagles have been seen snatching trout for dinner - you can too! During the winter months herds of elk can be watched on the foothills of the Gallatins from the front windows and are oftentimes crossing the property. The Yellowstone River Retreat will comfortably sleep eight guests. The cathedral ceiling great room and kitchen with breakfast bar provide a setting where everyone can play cards, board games or simply and quietly lose themselves in the beautiful scenery while dinner is cooking.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: We purchased the land in 1984, camped on it periodically until 2004 then decided to build the log home. We are both teachers and have been living in Montana since 1995. We love Montana and think our home on the Yellowstone River in the Paradise Valley is the best possible get-away in the world. We love the outdoors, wildlife, and scenic views!

Why the Owner Chose Pray, MT, USA:
It is so close to Yellowstone, why not this property! Plus, the views are amazing. Our favorite thing to do in the evening is to sit in the living area, turn off all the lights, and gaze at the brilliant stars out the catherdal windows. There's so much to do during the day and it's relaxing by night.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The Yellowstone River is ever-changing...each season brings a new look, more rocks to overturn and admire, and different fishing holes. The catheral windows look southwest to the high mountain peaks of the northern edge of Yellowstone National Park. The deer roam around the house and down by the river. People raft by in the summer either fishing or simply enjoying a warm day. Most importantly to us, it is only 20 miles from the northeast entrance of Yellowstone which gives us plently to see and do every day!
