About Sheri Hall - Managing Partner

Our family is originally from Southern California. I'm the oldest child and have a brother 9 years younger. Our parents, both being educators, had summers off and chose to spend them in Island Park. We eventually moved to Bozeman Montana,

Where my brother and I both graduated from Bozeman High School and Montana State University. Additionally, I went on to earn an advanced degree from University of North Carolina. 3 1/2 years ago circumstances changed within our family, and I decided to turn our family home into a vacation rental. I love people and enjoy interacting with our guests. We'd love to have you visit our lovely home, and enjoy the beauty and recreational opportunities of Island Park and Yellowstone. I look forward to hearing from you! ~Sheri

Sheri Hall - Managing Partner purchased this cabin in 1961

Why Sheri Hall - Managing Partner chose Macks Inn

Our parents fell in love with Island Park while vacationing and working summers here in the early 1960's. They decided to build a cabin so they could spend their summers in the Island Park, Yellowstone area. A new subdivision had just been created and our family bought our property, building the 2nd home in this beautiful area surrounded by US Forest Service land. This is our treasured family cabin that was built by our parents and grandparents In the early 1960's.

The Canadian cedar tongue and groove logs the cabin is built from arrived on a flatbed semi-truck from California with a set of instructions on how to put it together. The cabin was built in one summer, with the interior work completed over the next two years. Dad and Grandpa built the custom cabinets for the kitchen and installed the oak hardwood floors. Over the years, the cabin has been a labor of love for us and our parents. Originally a summer home, the cabin was converted for year-round use in 1990. Recently updated in 2012, the cabin now has all the amenities of a well appointed home, while still retaining its original charm.

What makes this cabin unique

The cabin is very warm and inviting. The large multi-paned windows offer beautiful outdoor views of the forest and the numerous small (and large) animals that inhabit the area. Our home is not your usual Island Park/ mountain rental, we chose comfort and amenities over the popular 'Lodge Décor' found in most mountain vacation rentals. Each room has been decorated with a loving hand and an eye for color and our guests comfort.

You'll find everything you need for an enjoyable stay, both indoors and out.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Everything was decorated so beautifully, yet very practical. If we needed anything, it was always here and easy to find. I could tell Sheri put a lot of thought and care into providing a pleasant experience for the guests, what a success you are! We had such a peaceful time. Thank you so much!

Very clean, well-equipped, and beautiful cabin. Great host.

  • 5 of 5

We were 5 travelers (mid 20s) from NYC, visiting Yellowstone National Park. This rental exceeded all of our expectations.


We didn't mind the ~25 mins trip each day to/from the west entrance at all. You see great scenery and there is food/service on the road. The house was easy to find and is located in a safe woodland community. We did not encounter any wild animals in the proximity of the cabin.


Sheri reached out immediately after completing the booking and provided all the essential information as well as the rental agreement and an area guide way in advance of the trip, helping us prepare better. All the amenities (heating, wi-fi, fireplace, stove, etc.) were functional.


To say the house was clean is an understatement; it was spotless. Everything that a guest might need was thought for and readily available, from spare towels to utensils, food storage boxes, cleaning supplies, even vitamins and board games. The couches were very comfortable too.

It is difficult to see how anyone could be disappointed with this rental.

Lovely cabin near Yellowstone

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this cabin for 5 days in August while visiting Yellowstone. The location is an easy drive from the west entrance to Yellowstone. The cabin has been beautifully updated. The 3 bedrooms are all a nice size and the beds were quite comfortable. The bathroom was also updated and a nice size. Everywhere in the cabin are special touches and decor designed to make it more comfortable for the visitor. The kitchen had everything needed for cooking, and the washer/dryer were a great bonus. TV and internet worked well. The owner left clear instructions for needed items, as well as suggestions for nearby restaurants, grocery stores, and activities. She was also easily reached with any needed questions. We were very pleased with our choice of this beautiful, welcoming cabin for our vacation lodging and would recommend it to anyone wishing to stay in the area!!

Island Park, the Yellowstone area and nearby Jackson Hole receive a lot of snow in the winter. We're famous for our snowmobile trails and back country adventures. Miles and miles of snowmobile trails, right from our front door,

World class skiing at Grand Targhee and Big Sky Resorts are within a 90 minute drive. Jackson Hole Ski Area is a little further, but still a reasonable drive. Cross country ski trails are nearby, kite skiing is very popular on Henry's Lake Flats. Rental equipment for almost every sport are available at several locations. Biking, hiking and ATV trails are right outside the door too. Nearby Island Park Village Resort offers golfing, tennis and swimming.

Many Autumn visitors enjoy the hunting opportunities the area presents, elk, deer, moose, mountain lion, and bird hunting available by permit.

Be sure to bring you camera & binoculars, photo enthusiasts love Island Park, for it's amazing scenery, bird and animal watchers will be thrilled with the many species of animals and birds in the area.

I can't think of a better place to vacation, which is why my grandparents and parents chose Island Park to build their permanent getaway, then year round home in.

Come visit, explore and enjoy this amazing slice of paradise for yourself!
