About Katie Wilson

I grew up in Idaho and have called Island Park my home since 2008. I'm a Park Ranger in Yellowstone, and this is my perfect retreat. I love to travel, fly fish, ski, snowmobile and just enjoy the quiet that this area offers.

Katie Wilson purchased this house in 2008

Great location for a trip to Yellowstone!

  • 4 of 5

The Hatchery House is a cosy cabin with a great location. The two main beds were very comfortable, and the shower and bathroom were very nice. The internet was out of high speed data, which dampened our trip. Be careful of the entry steps...theyre not safe.

The hatchery house, Bleh exterior, very comfy, well worth it!

  • 3 of 5

We visited the Hatchery House from New Jersey with our 3 boys. When we arrived we were greeted by an overgrown yard that featured two derelict vehicles in storage. Yikes! However, when we entered, the house is in great shape and comfy.

Perfect Yellowstone Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

The Hatchery House served as headquarters for our Yellowstone vacation and we couldn't have been happier with it! It was wonderful to come home to a comfy bed in a lovely house after a long day in the park. We also enjoyed the full kitchen and the perfect night sky over the house. Can't wait to come back!

Quaint Rustic Cabin

  • 4 of 5

My family stayed here as part of a Western trip that included Yellowstone and Grand Tetons. It included my husband, our 3 children (20,17,13) and a friend. We had plenty of room and the kitchen had a variety of cookware and plenty of cups and utensils. . It was easy to find. I can't tell you exactly how far from the Western entrance to YNP because construction on HWY 20 in Montana delayed us quite a bit (One day we took a detour that went by Quake Lake and as we left for our next stop we went through Idaho and entered the Grand Tetons from the South, both very scenic drives.) For some reason, the internet would show it was connected but none of our devices or the TV would have enough of a signal to work at all. But, it was a vacation and this got the kids playing Monopoly and cards in the evening. There were books and plenty of games available to keep a person occupied. We got pizza at a RV park around the corner and there was a small grocery store about 10 miles north. We didn't spend a lot of time at the cabin because we wanted to be at the park, but it was nice to come back after a long day and rest comfortably.

Simply Beautiful

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I got married and stayed at this cabin for our honeymoon. It was simply amazing. We loved the house and the area, and it is in a perfect location, close enough to town and the park to not be a bother. We loved the house and all of its perks of nature and technology.

Thank you for letting us spend our honeymoon in western Yellowstone!
