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.

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!


Owner info

Year Purchased: 1961

About the owner: 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

Why the Owner Chose Island Park, ID, USA:
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.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
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.
