Year Purchased: 1995
About the owner: Tom and Eleanor Stone came to Yellowstone Park in the late 70s and early 80s, met and were married here. They worked in the interior of the Park for a number of years and then settled in Gardiner in 1989. They raised their two daughters in Gardiner. Outside of work Tom enjoys gardening, fly fishing, reading, and traveling when able. When not working, Eleanor's life revolves around family, friends, and food and she's been active in the community. They have been hosting family and friends in the Lilac Cottage for years and are happy to open it to newcomers and folks who want to enjoy the area.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
We love our home and cottage because of its location. It is handy to go out the door to run errands or explore, and yet this downtown property has a surprising ability to tuck you away. We love the old fashioned comfort of this historic property. We purposely keep the nightly rate of Lilac Cottage reasonable for this area. The reason is that we think that the additional 10% taxes (7% state and 3% local) plus the $30 cleaning fee and now the new VRBO Service Fee add enough to your charges! We are making our rate fair in comparison to vacation rentals in the area and even Gardiner motels.
