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 31. 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.

Christmas Cabin!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week here over Christmas and the cabin was AMAZING! It was comfortable, warm, cozy, everything we were looking for. They had a huge, beautiful Christmas Tree & other little touches that made our Christmas one of the best.

The location was perfect for snowmobiling & they had a heated garage Bay for our snow machines to thaw out & start easy in the morning & a gas pump on the property. (Very Cool)

It's located close enough to town yet feels like your in the middle of nowhere.

The only problem with this place is I don't own it lol it was perfect. The hot tub was awesome after a long day of riding. Can't wait to return.

This amazing home was perfect for our group of 10. It is centrally located for a Yellowstone National Park vacation. We could visit several Yellowstone destinations in one day, leaving around 10am and returning in time for dinner. We didn't want to pack up and stay at several different locations to see the park, and this was truly the answer. If we go back to Yellowstone we would not stay anywhere else!

Now...about the home. Let me first tell you that I am a vacation rental property owner, with property in Park City, Utah. I am extremely picky and I expect the properties I rent to be as nice as mine. No Disappointment Here! If I could give it 6 stars, I would! We were so comfortable and could not stop talking about the beautiful home. They have stocked the kitchen with quality pots and pans and every small appliance you can imagine. The large dinning room table easily seated all 10 of us. We cooked breakfast and dinner every day, and packed our lunch for the park.

We had all the privacy we needed with 5 bedrooms and 5 baths. All bedrooms are equal, no obvious master bedroom. The baths are modern, clean, and very spacious.

To top it off the home had a utility room with a full size washer and dryer, and an awesome hot tub on the patio.

We did not want to leave. You will not find a nicer property in West Yellowstone, nor will you fine a better value. I applaud the owners on this fine property.

Amazing in every way!

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely incredible vacation rental very close to West Yellowstone. Property Managers and Owners available for easy contact and property is immaculate. We travelled for a mini family reunion, including 2 children, and house was perfect for everyone to have their own space, as well as common rooms for everyone to get together. Hot tub and fire pit are perfect of morning and evening relaxation. I cannot recommend this home highly enough!

Stay if you going to Yellowstone area! Wonderful property (owner are extremely helpful)

  • 5 of 5

Five separate families (all the men grew up together) get together. The home is set up perfectly for group gatherings . Everyone has their own space, but can all be together if you wish. The home is furnished very well with all the necessities needed. The location is beautiful, with wonderful views and much wildlife in the area. The patio and fire pit are great assets of the property, and were utilized every day. Property is very clean and well taken care of. Working with the owners was easy, they were responsive, helpful and cared about our group. If going to Yellowstone area do not miss the opportunity the enhance your experience by staying at Snow Creek Lodge. When we return to the Yellowstone area we will stay her again. Our entire group recommends this property to everyone wanting to stay in the Yellowstone area. Thanks to the owners you were a big help!

Best VRBO to Date!!! A Must Stay Property!

  • 5 of 5

Our group from Hawaii stayed at Snow Creek Lodge for a week while on a multi-family vacation. We had four families consisting of 7 adults and 5 pre-teens. We are all very good friends and enjoy being together and the house was large enough to allow for private time and personal space! We loved the large dining table that allowed everyone to eat together then play different games after dinner with a nice fire in the background. Since most activities centered around the park we traveled through the town of West Yellowstone almost daily where shopping and restaurants are plentiful. We are planning a family reunion in Yellowstone in 2018 and hope to stay here again!

Our Best VRBO Rental Ever

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Snow Creek Lodge on a family vacation to Yellowstone this summer. It was the perfect space for 6 adults and 5 teenagers. Loved the large gathering space with plenty of seating as well as a dining area that would accommodate all of us. The kitchen was large and well stocked. Everything was spotlessly clean. The five bathrooms and showers were an added bonus. The little development where the home is located was just right for evening walks. The property is close to West Yellowstone and the National Park entrance. Everything was spotlessly clean. We loved Snow Creek Lodge and would highly recommend it.

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.
