Overview

About the property

1 Bed + Sofa Sleeper, 1 Full Bath, Sleeps 4, full sized kitchen, fully equipped

Welcome to the Red Dog Retreat! This rental condominium is located in the mountains of Montana just 15 minutes (9mi, 15km) from the west entrance to Yellowstone National Park. It is a one-bedroom unit that is roomy and comfortable for 2-4 people, with a queen bed in the bedroom and a queen sofa-sleeper couch in the living room. It's centrally located in an area surrounded by some of the best fly-fishing in the West, and only 15 minutes from the entrance to Yellowstone Park!

Along with spectacular views of Yellowstone Park and the 11'000 foot peaks surrounding West Yellowstone, enjoy a full-size kitchen, laundry facilities, and wireless internet. It also has a nice deck with propane BBQ where you can try your hand at cooking on the grill while watching the sunset. The deck will be screened in for 2015, so nothing will bug you during your reverie!

There is abundant wildlife, much of which travels right past the condo, and hundreds of miles of hiking, biking, skiing and snowmobiling trails right out the door. We also have other units available and can combine one, two, and three bedroom units to accommodate larger groups.

It is accessible by paved road (the last 1/4 mi is gravel), but sits in a secluded, quiet subdivision on the Horse Butte peninsula of Hebgen Lake, 9 miles outside the town of West Yellowstone.

It offers truly awesome views and the subdivision is surrounded by Forest Service Land. Yellowstone Park is 15 minutes away, the Gallatin National Forest is less than one-quarter mile away, and the two main arms of beautiful Hebgen Lake are five minutes either way.

West Yellowstone has its own charms, with both summer and winter time activities, museums, theaters, dining and shopping.

The fishing, skiing, wildlife watching and geyser gazing are world renowned. Come stay in this quiet mountain retreat and spend time exploring this adventurer's wonderland! Be sure to ask about Lava Creek Adventures, your source for Yellowstone guides, kayak tours and rentals, and other information about exploring the area. See the link below!

Guestbook comments from the manager

We had rental accommodations before in New York City, houses at beaches in Florida, but none paid as much attention to small details and nice touches as at your place! they made our week stay very pleasurable. It's like a home away from home!

YNP is a wonderful place to visit. Coming from Florida where the landscape is flat, the scenery is quite different with gorgeous mountains, deep gorges, geysers, fire holes and the autumn foliage at Gran Tetons are splendid.

We saw a lot of wild lives in the Park and a herd of a dozen of bison passed by the house one morning. We could admire them from the living room window.

My husband appreciated the well stocked kitchen since he considers himself a "gourmet" chef. He brought his own spices and knives, but found out he didn't need to.

We totally enjoyed our stay here and it will make a memorable vacation times for us!

Perfect for our needs

  • 5 of 5

The red dog retreat was perfect for our needs during our stay. It was clean, well stocked in the bathroom with towels and soap. The kitchen included every item needed to cook in our rental. Bonuses included movies, puzzles, and informational books about the area. The location is perfect for visiting West Yellowstone. We will recommend this rental and hope to visit again!

Red dog retreat

  • 4 of 5

Loved the stay at red dog retreat. Had all the comforts of home. Like being outside park and West Yellowstone town is cool place to just walk around. Was very well stocked with utensils in kitchen. Very pleasureful, clean bed was very comfortable.

The only thing need to fix is the shower valve could NOT get set to hot water. Really needs replaced. Other than that was wonderful place to stay.

Owner's Response: So glad you enjoyed your stay! The shower valve is an older style valve that is not the most intuitive to use, but it works fine. However, it will likely get replaced this winter when there's time for the project since it seems to be problematic for many renters. Apologies for the inconvenience! Always feel free to give us a call anytime during your stay and we can explain how things work if anything is giving you trouble. Sometimes older homes have a few more quirks to go with their exceptional character. We try to always be proactive with maintenance, and we're also always happy to help with anything that seems amiss or to send someone out to fix any problems that might arise during your stay. We look forward to having you here again soon!

Great, quaint, affordable stay

  • 4 of 5

It was a great addition to our trip. The only complaint we had was a leaky shower head which soaked the bathroom our first night.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the review, and so glad you enjoyed your stay! Apologies for the leaking shower head! The shower is not usually run when the tub is cleaned during turnovers, so we did not catch the problem before you arrived. Apologies again for the inconvenience, but had you let us know we’d have it fixed right away. Someone is available 24/7 either in our office or via our after hours number.

Great place with all home comforts

  • 5 of 5

Just spent a fantastic week in Red Dog Retreat.

Within easy reach of the West Yellowstone entrance to the park.

Would certainly recommend using this condo - all home comforts and a very well equipped kitchen.

Everything you need - comfortable! Great Customer Service!

  • 4 of 5

While this condo is located a bit far out from the main little town of West Yellowstone (15 min drive) the condo has everything you need. Quiet location. Pretty. Close enough to town and to the West Yellowstone Gate. Excellent customer service from Marta. Very professional. NO A/C but it is usually not needed. Night time gets quite cool. Very, very well stocked condo. Thanks! Had a very very good time.

Everything was great!

  • 5 of 5

Just about 9 miles from Yellowstone National Park's west entrance makes this an affordable yet convenient location. All the amenities were present, washer, dryer, etc so it made our stay that much better. I will definitely be looking to the Red Dog Retreat the next time I visit.
