Property description

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!
