About the Property

Imagine Camping In Luxury In 400 Sf One Bedroom Cabin with 500 sf kitchen/bath

Imagine camping in luxury in your own 400 sf one bedroom cabin with thousands of acres of national forest wilderness out your front door. Deer, elk, bears and many other birds and beasts may wander by at any time. This precious cabin offers you a comfortable high mountain experience protected from the wind, rain, cold, and insects. Located on acres of trees and flowering meadows and surrounded by the targhee national forest, the spacious deck offers you the perfect venue to take in all the sights and sounds of the Yellowstone high country. Take a walk down the driveway to view the Tetons, Henrys lake, snake river, centennial mountains, meadow creak wildlife reserve and the Yellowstone plateau. Witness incomparable sunrises and sunsets.

Surreal, serene, quiet, peaceful, exciting, magical, etherial, and transcendental are some adjectives used by our guests to describe our high mountain adventure ambiance.

Each day one is able to choose any of the numerous nearby outdoor activities or picnic in Yellowstone National Park which is only minutes away. In less than two hours you are able to visit Grand Targhee ski resort, Jackson Hole, Grand Teton National Park, St. Anthony's sand dunes, Virginia City, or Big Sky.


Of particular interest are the hundreds of miles of bike and snow mobile trails that begin at your back door and the world class fishing found on henry's lake and the snake river.

Please note, you will have to walk down stairs to access the bathroom as our cabin is built into the front side of the property's 1300 sf garage; our vrbo property 239561 shares the same 3 acre lot but is not seen from our high mountain adventure cabin. We do not recommend our high mountain adventure for for older folks who don't like stairs, mountains, or adventure.

OUR FIRST YEAR AND OUR FIRST GUESTS' COMMENTS

"Most assuredly this has been a one-of-a-kind experience! we love cabin vacations, and this one out does all the rest in tis beautiful scenic location. From the chatter of the gentle winds to the distant view of the Tetons, all have made this a trip we will long remember. Pam and Doc have been the perfect hosts-there when we need them, yet giving us time to relish the solitude on our own. We hope you enjoy your stay as much as we have. And remember-hug the mountain." John + Anais, Austin Texas, June 24, 2015

"Thank you Pam and Doc for being the wonderful hosts. It was a great experience and we enjoyed our stay every bit. We will definitely recommend this place to our family and friends. Thanks again," Remya, Edmonton Ca Jul 7, 2015

"What an outstanding piece of land you have!. The peacefulness and solitude is second to none. We had an excellent time while staying at your cabin and we are very sorry to have to leave.Thanks for opening your home to us and being such gracious hosts." Jason and Amanda, Washington DC July 14, 2015
