Gateway to Yellowstone is a spacious, family friendly, and affordably priced vacation rental that's in a perfect location for enjoying both Yellowstone Park and all of the amazing outdoor adventures available in Island Park, Idaho! This 1870 sq. ft., 5 bedroom / 2 bath cabin sleeps 13 comfortably in beds and is only 22 miles from the west entrance of Yellowstone Park. (The wonderfully scenic drive to Yellowstone takes less than 20 minutes.) It’s also only a half mile from ATV and snowmobile rentals and an access point to the famous Island Park trail system. You can ride either ATVs or snowmobiles, depending on the season, directly from our cabin onto the hundreds of miles of intersecting trails traversing this pristine natural wonderland that includes Island Park, ID and West Yellowstone, MT. The entire family will enjoy this location. Within less than 1/4 mile of the cabin you’ll have access to 2 tennis courts plus the pro shop and tee-off point of the beautiful 9-hole golf course of the Island Park Village Resort. A driving range and putting green are also available. Our property backs up to the fairway of hole #2 of the golf course. Deer, squirrels and rabbits can sometimes be seen enjoying the golf course too. Our large pine trees provide a barrier, so you do have privacy from golfers when enjoying the back yard and deck. A few restaurants and a grocery store are located only 1/2 mile away. Within a 5 mile radius you can enjoy fishing or boating on Henry’s Lake or the Henry’s Fork of the Snake River. Rafts, kayaks, canoes and bicycles can also be rented 1/2 mile from the cabin.

You’ll enjoy our redwood deck with comfortable seating and a gas BBQ grill; or stretch out on our hammock in the yard below. Gather the family around our outdoor fire pit at night as you roast marshmallows and plan your next adventure.

Inside, our upstairs living room has a rustic exposed-beam vaulted ceiling and a cozy wood-burning fireplace with stone hearth. (Firewood provided.) Relax and enjoy the comfort of the leather couches as you watch Blu-Ray discs/DVDs from our collection, or free streaming internet video (Netflix, etc.) on the 48” flatscreen TV. The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you’ll need for cooking and dining, including spices and cooking oil. The comfortable master bedroom has a queen size bed and adjoining bathroom. Two other bedrooms upstairs have queen beds also. Downstairs are two more bedrooms. One with a queen size bed and a queen size sleeper couch; the other with a full size bed with a roll-out twin size trundle bed hidden beneath. Enjoy the convenience of our laundry room, with detergent and dryer sheets provided.

If you’re looking for a comfortable, well-suppied and very affordable family-friendly home base for exploring Yellowstone and enjoying the great outdoors in Island Park, you’ll love our Gateway to Yellowstone! There are lots of other day trip opportunities to choose from, including Teton National Park, Mesa Falls, Harriman State Park, the Red Rocks Lakes nature preserve (a bird watcher's dream), and more. Enjoy horseback riding, whitewater or scenic rafting, boating, fishing and hiking. We’ll share our favorite spots for soaking in a natural hot spring or swimming in scenic natural splendor.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: This photo shows the managers of Gateway to Yellowstone.

Why the Owner Chose Island Park, ID, USA:
The owner grew up in Idaho Falls and vacationed in Island Park regularly. She loves the outdoors and adventuring with the children. She wanted to move the family somewhere rural and that is why she decided to move here. She is happy to share this property with you!

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
The owner and her children love this home with the vaulted wood ceilings in the living room and mountain views. It is located on the golf course in the heart of the Island Park Village Resort. You'll enjoy the back deck where the pine trees offer some privacy from the golf course. You'll love the coziness of the awesome wood-burning fireplace in the living room on winter nights. The house is very comfortable throughout. Each room has its own independent electric heating, so everyone can be comfortable, no matter how they like the heat set. The thing that many of our renters like the best is the nearness to snowmobile and ATV rentals (only 1/2 mile away). You can ride right from the rental business onto the extensive groomed trail system. Or, bring your own machines and park the trailer in our driveway. If you have too many trailers there is additional trailer parking nearby, right in our neighborhood.
