Why Betty Adamson chose West Yellowstone

We have been coming to this area since our children were small and we stayed in tents. We loved the area so much that we knew we needed to make it a part of our lives.

What makes this house unique

Our home is close to Yellowstone, but away from the hustle and bustle. We are in a very peaceful spot....the silence is sometimes deafening. It's the perfect spot to unwind after a day in the Park....the views are amazing, as are the sunsets!!!

Amazing house and location

  • 5 of 5

Our family had an extraordinary time here. The location was idyllic. The house was comfortable and incredibly well stocked. The owners are wonderful, responsive, and helpful. Our family has rented dozens of homes over the last 15 years, and this is probably our favorite. We hope to return soon!

Everything we hoped for in a family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful log cabin perfect for a family gathering. We had five adults and one child--perfect amount of space for us. Could easily handle many more guests. The home was perfect--waking up each morning to the views of Lake Hebgen and the mountain range. Weather was great the first week of June. Great place to spend the entire time away from home or to use as a base to visit Yellowstone or travel to Jackson Hole on a day trip. If you are lucky enough to reserve Steve and Betty's home you will have made your time in the area much more enjoyable!

A Slice of Heaven

  • 5 of 5

Driving up to this gorgeous home on Hebgen Lake, you know immediately that you're in for a treat. The Adamsons are the ultimate hosts inviting you into their beautifully decorated home, appointed with every amenity one could want in a lakeside cabin. We visited nearby West Yellowstone, loved the IMAX presentations and the kids got a thrill feeding the bears at The Grizzly and Wolf Discovery Center. Fly fishing on the Madison was amazing. Entering Yellowstone National Park through the nearby west entrance was convenient. Yellowstone never fails to thrill. The Bar N Ranch Restaurant was a delightful treat for a special evening out. Thank you, Steve and Betty, for sharing your home with our family. Enjoy the rest of your summer!

Exceptional vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of ten had a wonderful stay at Betty and Steve's beautiful log home on Hebgen Lake. The house is perfectly set up for a large family gathering -- wonderful master suite on the top floor (with a great view of the lake, balcony, and hammock), and four comfortable bedrooms downstairs all connected to a spacious common room, which leads directly outside. We all love to cook, and we found the kitchen to be exceptional -- large, wonderfully stocked, and perfect for many chefs! It rained during our part of our week, but we enjoyed sitting in the beautiful living room with a roaring fire in the fireplace. The West Yellowstone airport is only 20 minutes away -- so very convenient. This is a perfect place for a wonderful and memorable family gathering!

A cabin?

  • 5 of 5

This "cabin" is so much more than that word suggests. From the time we saw the VRBO photo to the time we drove up the driveway, we each had an idea of where we would be enjoying our first big family vacation.

Fourteen people staying in one house? Two very young and very active little boys and two mid-elementary-school-age siblings, their six parents plus two grandparents and an aunt and uncle, all comfortably spending a full week together in one house? Right. Well, it worked and it was awesome. That is one wonderful "cabin" in a magical place. We took full advantage of nearby Hebgen Lake, including catching fish for two days from a rental pontoon boat. We spent several full days in Yellowstone National Park and soon we were glad to see backed up park traffic, knowing we were very likely about to have a close look at a full-size bison strolling slowly between lanes of traffic or near the road. We saw many wonderful animals and birds each day. Staying in a comfortable and beautiful "cabin" with adventure opportunities nearby for every age group and interest was perfect. We will always remember our awesome Yellowstone family vacation. Betty, our very gracious and thoughtful host, was available if we needed anything or had questions but she never hovered or intruded. Betty and her family have created a remarkable and complete vacation home and our family feels very fortunate to have been able to enjoy it. We hope to return some day and have already heartily recommended it to friends.

Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our grown children wanted a family vacation instead of Christmas presents. This was a fantastic gift for everyone. The cabin was beautiful, large and fully equipped with everything you needed. There were 8 adults and 4 children (5 to 13). Plenty of room. The view of Hebgen Lake was breath taking. Not far from West Yellowstone and the entrance to the park.

Made a fire and had mountain pies for dinner and smores several night, celebrated my husbands 66th birthday, kids had large yard to run in. Would recommend this cabin for a fun and relaxing family vacation!
