The Johnson Creek Cabin is on the side of a beautiful mountain overlooking Hebgen Lake and the majestic mountains reflected in the water. It is very common to see several species of wildlife every day! The cabin is surrounded by National Forest and has access to hiking trails and skiing from the cabin! It also offers easy access to Hebgen Lake with a canoe available and sand beaches within 1/4 mile walk from the cabin, plus a marina 3 miles away. It's only minutes from the entrance to Yellowstone Park and the town of West Yellowstone.
This home is well equipped, and very cozy and comfortable! The cabin has two levels and plenty of space. The flooring on the ground level has radiant heat, which is super cozy and nice on the feet. The cabin has all electric heat and appliances, however there is also an old fashioned wood stove for additional heat and ambiance if desired. The living room has a queen sofa-sleeper couch, and one bathroom with a shower is downstairs. The second full bathroom is shared between the upstairs master bedroom and loft bedroom.
The loft bedroom is at the top of the stairs and has two twin beds. The private master bedroom has a queen bed and a futon/sleeper and shares the full bathroom with the loft bedroom. The cabin can sleep up to 8, but is most comfortable with 4 adults or adults with kids.
You will find all of the comforts of home, including a full kitchen and full-sized washer/dryer, unlimited hot water, high def TV with satellite, wireless internet, a wraparound deck with a propane barbecue grill, as well as a large yard with a small creek running through the property. Plenty of room for parking horse trailers and RV's, plus and un-fenced pasture is available for horses too!
The cabin offers spectacular mountain views with amazingly easy access to Hebgen Lake, fly fishing on the Madison River, and the mountains of Gallatin National Forest are literally only steps away. It is accessible by driving on a paved highway from the town of West Yellowstone and then taking a short 1/4 mile drive up a graded, maintained dirt road. It is only 16.5 miles outside the town of West Yellowstone and the western entrance of Yellowstone National Park.
Cross country and backcountry skiing opportunities are also available right outside the cabin -- Ski right from the front door directly to the top of Hegben or Trapper Mountain for superb powder turns! The spring crust cruising on Hebgen Lake can't be beat. Or come and participate in an official North American Ice Fishing Circuit event, the West Yellowstone/Hebgen Lake Tournament on January 15-17th, 2016. For those three days, West Yellowstone becomes the center of Ice Fishing with tremendous Fishing Education opportunities on Friday & Saturday and World Class Competition on Sunday, January 17, 2016, with all of this excitement within a couple of miles, and within view of the cabin!
In the summer, only a couple of miles away, fishing boats and pontoon boats are available from the Kirkwood Resort and Marina.
It is in a great location for staging any Yellowstone adventure, whether exploring the Park or the surrounding forests and lakes. If your vacation includes guided boat trips, your guide is welcome to leave the boat at the cabin, saving him some trouble, and you will be able to enjoy an some extra relaxation time every morning before heading out to catch blue ribbon trout!
Thanks for looking! We look forward to your stay at the cabin!
