Great house, gorgeous location.

  • 5 of 5

Family of 11 stayed here to celebrate Grandpa's 70th birthday!! This is s terrific house, huge!! Three generations here and room and privacy for all. Home is very comfortable and fully equipped with everything we could possibly need. We visited Yellowstone several times, Big Sky and had 2 lovely days doing water sports on the lake. Bucky the caretaker is terrific. Responded to questions immediately and very helpful. I would highly recommend this home. We are VRBO owners ourselves and have high expectations. All ours were met. Thank-you Darryl, Justin and Bucky!! Susan and Charles

This Log Home was beautiful and well appointed. Great views of the lake and mountains from the decks and hot tub! Perfect location for launching daily fly fishing trips. We had eight fishermen and it worked out perfectly. Care taker on site if you needed him. Lakeview Restaurant within walking distance. Perfect! Would definitely go back!

We just returned from a wonderful trip to Montana and Yellowstone. Our 9 yr old granddaughter said this was "The Best Vacation Ever" We stayed for a week at the lovely Snider home/cabin. We were a family of 10 people and had plenty of room. The home is well appointed with beautiful art work throughout. It is well equipped with washer and two dryers, two dishwashers and lots of room in the kitchen to prepare meals for many. The views from the home are incredible, lake views from several rooms and porches and forest views

from other windows. The house is only 15 miles from the West Gate of Yellowstone. After visits to Yellowstone Park we would jump in the hot tub and enjoy beautiful sunsets in the mountains.

We enjoyed activities on the lake. We had a variety of weather from warm to a hail storm. Loved all the weather changes. We also had a great time on a 3 hour trail ride at Diamond P Ranch.

Another highlight was the media room. All ages enjoyed watching movies. Bucky the caretaker who lives on the property was so very helpful.

We hope to someday return to this Ultimate Montana Experience. Thank you Sniders for sharing this bit of Paradise with us.

Amazing Home, Amazing Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This home is the perfect place for a family vacation. We had 3 families (10 people) and there was more than enough room for everyone. In the evening, this house was the family meeting spot for other relatives staying in the area. The home is so spacious there was room for everyone to eat dinner, visit and catch up.

The house is beautifully decorated. The kitchen is large and has everything you could possibly need. The hot tub was a huge hit with a wonderful view. By far the best part is the amazing view. The lake view changes throughout the day and it is simply gorgeous! After a day of hiking in the park, it was great to unwind with a glass of wine on the porch swing.

It is just a short (and pretty) drive in to West Yellowstone and the entrance to the park. We also went horseback riding nearby. The caretaker onsite is both nice and very helpful. He answered all of our questions and gave us great suggestions for the best local activities.

I highly recommend this property!! It exceeded our expectations.

Excellent Experience, more than advertised

  • 5 of 5

We have planned this Yellowstone trip for 2 years. And this cabin is the best choice you can get around yellowstone areas.

This is the best travelling experience ever for us and other 2 friends’ families. This cabin is much better than we can ever expect. The room is well decorated and designed, extremely spacious. Kids enjoyed living/family room (play games, watching TV). Media rooms are fascinating, we bring movies, both adult and kids can enjoy. Hot tubs are their favorite too.

Most important: Breathtaking view, we just love it. In the morning, we see fogs in the lake and mountains. At night, we enjoyed stars and galaxy in the sky. Moms all love the kitchen and cooking delicious foods.

We have 14 people starting age of 3 to the age of 80 from 4 families. Everyone loves it. We will definitely come back when we have a chance.

Wishing for the entire summer

  • 5 of 5

This was our second year of spending a week in the beautiful cabin. Last year we used it for our first family vacation when we had our two sons and their families join us for the week. We had such a wonderful time that we came back again this year. And although we had discussed going to a different location next summer early in the week, by the end of the week we had decided to come back to this wonderful cabin in 2015. That should say everything that we need to say.

The cabin provides everything that you could possibly want in Montana mountain vacationing and as last year it was immaculate when we arrived. The high-end appliances mean that if you want to cook you can do it like a pro. If you don't want to cook indoors, the grill on the outside is great for burgers or steaks, we've done both. The view from the balconies is breath-taking. The size of the cabin means that adults and children each get their space and everyone is happier for it. The kids loved the media room. The location is perfect...only a few minutes to Yellowstone NP, West Yellowstone, Big Sky and the fascinating earthquake lake. You can also walk down to the lake for swimming or fishing. This year we went just down the road to the Kirkland Marina and rented a pontoon boat for an afternoon of fun and fishing. The new restaurant within walking distance right next door, Lakeside Overlook, is a great addition with very good food, local micro-brews and the excitement of the horseshoe tournaments. This year we went to Big Sky and took the Lone Mountain Experience and it was great. Using a chairlift, a open air truck and the tram, you make your way to the top of Lone Mountain some 16,200 feet in altitude. We had from 6 years to 68 years and everyone had a great time. The Kids even had a snowball battle at the top. You also should try Bucks T-4 restaurant in Big Sky for great food.

Pulling everything together is a friendly and helpful caretaker who makes everything go smoothly. He can give you all the info you need for fishing in the area.

If you want to experience Montana at its best, this is the place.
