About the property

A spacious 5 bedroom, 5 bathroom vacation home sleeps up to 14.

We are proud to offer guests to Yellowstone the opportunity to stay in our premier vacation home built in 2014! For anyone wanting the 'mountain country' experience with a comfortable, nostalgic, western flare. The home is located on a 1/2 acre lot in the Lazy Acres rural subdivision, just 8 miles from West Yellowstone. Upon first entering the home, its' open concept kitchen/dining room features 14 foot walls with a double fireplace that separates the great room from the kitchen/dining room. The home is all on one level. Past guests have been in awe of the unique character instilled in the design of this home and the spacious openness and wishing they had planned more vacation time to enjoy the home. With enough beds and permitted for up to 14 people, along with five bathrooms, even large families or small groups will find comfort without feeling cramped. The custom finishes throughout are of reclaimed wood and the earth tone colors incorporated in the décor give it a warm nostalgic feel. The views from the large great room windows and the front patio are of the famous 'Lionhead' Mountain. The home has air conditioning but is not always needed due to cool summer evenings. A gas firepit (available May 1 - November 1) on the large back patio is a great gathering place at the end of the day for s'mores and stories. A hot tub is available for our winter and spring guests from November 15 - May 1. Our winter guests are just a quarter mile from groomed snowmobile trails, snowshoeing and cross country skiing in the national forest. The option for our winter guests to purchase premium grade fuel for snowmobiles or vehicles is conveniently right at the home. You have a single-car garage available for use. We built this home with the vacationer in mind.

About Tim & Nancy Heideman, built the home in 2014, and own it

We have lived in West Yellowstone since 1993 and just love all the area has to offer! Having our own construction business known for high quality residential constuction, we built this home with the Yellowstone vacationer in mind. We are very involved with our community and take pride in what our town provides to the people that visit the area.

Tim & Nancy Heideman, built the home in 2014, and own it purchased this lodge in 2014

Why Tim & Nancy Heideman, built the home in 2014, and own it chose West Yellowstone

We love this property because it's peaceful and surrounded by beautiful mountains and forests. Families have plenty of room to roam freely around the property and can feel comfortable walking the dirt roads in this small residential secluded area.

What makes this lodge unique

We envisioned sitting on the front patio watching the sun set around Lionhead mountain and relaxing on the back patio watching our grandkids around the firepit roasting marshmallows for s'mores. Making unique memories to last a lifetime.

In the heart of Yellowstone Country, our home provides our guests with all the conveniences of home in a lodge setting. Just 5 minutes away from Hebgen Lake, surrounded by majestic mountains full of wildlife. Snow Creek Lodge is just 8 miles away from the Town of West Yellowstone and the entrance to Yellowstone National Park. In our mountainous area, summer daytime temperatures are usually at a comfortable 65-85 degrees and can drop down to the 40's, and sometimes cooler at night. There are great hiking trails in the national forest close to the home. While in West Yellowstone, make sure to visit the Grizzly & Wolf Discovery Center, a not-for-profit wildlife park. Admission is good for two days. The Yellowstone Giant Screen (Imax) Theater is another "don't miss". Winter enthusiasts will appreciate the easy access to groomed snowmobile trails just 1/4 a mile from Snow Creek. The area is great for cross-country skiing and snow-shoeing. Also in the winter the Town of West Yellowstone has an ice-skating rink in the town park. Rentals for all winter activities are available in Town. Our mountain town has two grocery stores, several specialty coffee shops, ice cream shops, restaurants and bars of all sorts, several gas stations and many motels. The Playmill Theater, a live theater is open Memorial Day to Labor Day. Our community has a year round population of 1,200 and increases to an estimated 3,100 in the summer. As locals, our favorite time to visit Yellowstone is September and October. The fall colors, wildlife and weather are amazing. This time of year is less crowded than summer. You might even be around for a high school home football or Volleyball game on the weekend. Help cheer on the West Yellowstone Wolverines!! As one of the small schools in Montana, they play 6-man football. It is very fun to watch, with scores you'd think were basketball games.

Great Vacation Property

  • 5 of 5

This home was just what we wanted and more. Everything was clean and in great shape. The atmosphere in and around the home was lovely. Rustic but new and with all the modern amenities. Everyone had a comfortable bed and no one had to wait to shower or use the facilities. We are hoping to rent this again and stay for a few more days. Our only complaint was not spending enough time at he cabin. We spent most of our time in Yellowstone and decided we would like more time to sit around and visit and play some board games. Although we wish the hot tub was working, we have no complaints about the accommodations. The owners were responsive and great to work with. We will definitely stay at Snow Creek Lodge again.

Great Visit

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of nine people. All concerned were delighted with the property. 'Twas clean, spacious and well equipped. The gorgeous weather and proximity to Yellowstone NP did not hurt either. The coup de grace for us was the eclipse, which we viewed from the Targhee Resort. We all highly recommend the place!

Perfect home, great location, spotlessly clean!

  • 5 of 5

We have rented houses for twenty years and this is the best. Great layout with five bedrooms (and five bathrooms) on one floor, spotlessly clean, fully loaded, and just ten minutes from West Yellowstone entrance. Stayed with two families (four adults and five kids) and it was perfect. Only issue was wifi was a bit slow, but we managed. Great house!

Home was just as described. Very beautiful and extremely spacious. Everything in the home is brand new looking and very clean. Beds were all very comfortable with extra pillows and blankets. We loved how everything was provided all dishes, linens, dish soap, spices, trash bags etc. Very convenient to West entrance to Yellowstone, (15 min.)which we visited every day. Also had a wonderful time toasting marshmallows over the gas fire pit. Thank you so much for the use of your beautiful home!!!

Clean and tidy

  • 5 of 5

We had our three children, their spouses and grandchildren at this house(12 in all). Plenty of space and a nice big kitchen. We fixed a lot of meals here. Only downside to that, not a full set of measuring spoons or dry measuring cups. Baking scratch muffins was a challenge. It was easy to get to the West Yellowstone entrance. Their were a few other things to do around town, so all in all a great place to stay. We headed next to Wilson, WY and unfortunately that house was not near as nice as this one😃 I would stay here again.
