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.

Why Tim & Nancy Heideman, built the home in 2014, and own it chose Lazy Acres

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.

Excellent lodging for a group

  • 5 of 5

Our hiking group of eight people (three couples and two singles) found this property to be perfect for our needs. There are five bedrooms, four with private baths and one with a hall bath. The common area of living room, dining room, and kitchen were large with fireplaces on each side and nice for congregating and visiting. It is an easy 10 minutes from West Yellowstone with no traffic. We did have a big grizzly run in front of the car on the highway a couple of miles from the house and a grizzly was in the neighborhood one night. Of course, that was exciting to us from the East! The amenities were very adequate, the lodge was very clean and spacious and we will recommend this to any group of our size. In a little warmer weather, we would definitely have taken advantage of the fire pit, grill, and picnic table outside in a lovely setting. Thank you!

Beautiful house, wonderful location

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful 10 day stay at this fantastic house, just outside of West Yellowstone. The location was perfect - very private with great views and yet close enough to town. The house is very well laid out for group togetherness in the common areas, but lots of privacy with the bedrooms and ensuite bathrooms. The fireplaces in the dinning room and living room were fantastic. We had lots of room in the kitchen to prepare meals and store supplies for 8 adults. The kitchen was fully equipped and we really didn't lack for anything. The house was spotless upon our arrival. Working with Lisa and Nancy was easy and both were very responsive. I would highly recommend this house for a large group wanting to explore Yellowstone. We couldn't have asked for a better place and we would love to return!

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!
