Overview

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

Convenience

We would like to point out how convenient High Mountain Adventure is to Yellowstone Park. There are 5 entrances to the Park. How long of a drive is it from the nearest town to Old Faithful?: South-Jackson 2:08; East-Cody 2:30; Northeast-Red Lodge 3:36; North-Gardiner 1:33; West Yellowstone 0:50. 95% of the VRBO HOMES in the West Yellowstone market are over 10 minutes away from West Yellowstone. There are over 1000 VRBO sites in the "Yellowstone Country" category. That means that Top of the World is in the top 1% for all VRBO listings in the Yellowstone region for convenience to the Park. It is only 12-15 minutes to the West Gate from Top of the World. You get a world-class experience without being crowded into a West Yellowstone motel nor in close proximity to other subdivision homes. In addition, there are many incredible hiking and biking trails, boating, river floats, waterfalls, springs, atv rentals, horseback riding, and wildlife viewing withing a 20 minute drive of the cabin. It doesn’t get any better than this. High Mountain Adventure.

Very nice

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for 3 nights and had a great time. The road was somewhat tricky - although we did manage it just fine even with a small 2wd vehicle. High clearance would have been nice. It is doable unless super muddy, I think, but it rained some while we were there and didn't have any problem even when somewhat wet. The amenities were nice. The wifi was down while we were there, but we had excellent cell data from the AT&T tower. Overall, it was a fun stay. It takes about 10 minutes to get up and down the road, but that was really the only downside.

Awesome place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

Hands down one of the best travel experiences! The facility was very clean and located right near Yellowstone. Dr. John and Pam are great hosts with excellent advice for things to do in the area. I would not hesitate to stay with them again and are planning on returning next year.

What a special place, the tranquility of the mountains with Yellowstone on your doorstep.

  • 5 of 5

This place is very special, a holiday experience that we will always treasure. Pam and Doc are the perfect host making us extremely welcome and settled whilst having peace and tranquility. The mountain is gorgeous lovely vistas / nature and wildlife all around. To drive down then onto the west entrance to Yellowstone it takes around 30mins which is great to be away from the crowds, but close enough to make it accessible.

I've never driven off road before and the first time I was a bit nervous however the track was completely fine ,Doc guided us up first time then after it was alright , seriously by end of the week it was the norm and fun.

We come from the city so this was such a big experience for us Pam and Doc helped us get our bearings and even went the extra mile to ensure we had the ultimate Solar eclipse 2017 experience taking us to an incredible location for the best experience ever. We couldn't of asked for anything better. Forever happy

Cozy private cabin

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at the mountain retreat! It was exactly what we were looking for to explore Yellowstone. The property was cute and clean. Pam & John were very nice and welcoming! They had most of the stuff we needed already there like coolers, pans, etc.

We were looking for a quiet outdoor experience and it delivered just that. The best part of the cabin (in my opinion) was the beautiful wrap around porch. It was so nice for relaxing in the evenings. Be sure to sit out and take in the views and sunsets!

Beautiful, private & extremly clean

  • 5 of 5

We loved our time at this rental. We stayed for 3 days while visiting Yellowstone National Park. It was a tad bit out of the way, but so so worth a few extra minutes of drive time. The rental is extremely clean & very comfortable. The location is so private & the surroundings & view are incredible. It's an adventure in itself getting up the mountain, but that just added to the fun. Pam & John were so hospitable & provided everything we needed for a comfortable & enjoyable stay. This property is exactly as advertised. Highly recommend it!!
