Lakeside Cottage is located in the private, gated Bills Island community. It had a major remodel with new carpet in the living room and upstairs bedrooms in spring of 2017. A new master suite, large deck, and main bath have all been remodeled within the past 3 years including new washer and dryer and kitchen appliances. Our rustic cabin is very secluded being nestled in the trees off the waterfront. Two private docks (one for a boat and one for swimming) with close proximity to a boat loading area, make this a great place for boating, wake boarding, jet skiing, swimming, or fishing. The cabin offers 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms and will sleep 10 guests comfortably. The main floor has the master bedroom with king size bed and en-suite bathroom with jetted tub/shower. A den with hide-a-bed is directly off the master. The other main floor bathroom has a newly tiled shower with two vanities. Bedroom #2 is upstairs with a queen size bed. Bedroom #3 has 2 queen size beds and 2 extra long double beds. We have a BBQ grill with propane provided and fire pit (bring your own wood). Several picnic tables offer great outdoor eating options. Also new 2017 are 3 patio sets with umbrellas. This is the perfect place to vacation as it is within 45 minutes of Yellowstone Park. Other close attractions are Mesa Falls, Big Springs, Henry's Lake, Harriman State Park, and Quake Lake, to name a few.

About Ruth Ann Rose
Our father and mother were both born in Idaho and returned after his residency to start a medical practice. Several years later after vacationing in a cabin in upper New York state, they began looking for the perfect place in Idaho to vacation.
Ruth Ann Rose purchased this Cabin in 1962
Why Ruth Ann Rose chose Island Park
Our family has owned this property for over 50 years. Originally purchased by our parents when the cabin was only two years old, we have spent many summer days fishing, water skiing, and jet skiing. As we have gotten older, our children and grandchildren have taken up the fun activities as we snap photos and enjoy the company.
What makes this Cabin unique
Mother fell in love with the lot. So many trees provided privacy from both the road and the lake. A deck was built and enjoyed for our parents' 45 wedding anniversary. One recent addition included tearing down that deck and replacing it with a beautiful large deck with railing looking out over the lot and lake. Over the years the cabin has been remodeled inside to handle our growing family.

Great, fun cabin
The cabin is right on the water and the owner left a canoe, paddle board, and life jackets for use. The dock is easy to get to, though a bit steep. It is only a short walk from the public boat launch. Bill's Island is quiet and convenient to off roading, fishing, and a short drive to Yellowstone. Cabin is quaint with some newer finishes, and overall very clean and organized. Kitchen has everything you need for a short stay, minus a coffee pot. The huge deck and tables with umbrellas were a major hit as we were in town for a family reunion, so it was a perfect gathering and eating place. We would definitely rent again!
Beautiful property right on the lake!
Loved this quaint, clean, homey property! The lake access is incredible and the views are breath taking!
Great cabin but.....
The cabin was great and we had a fun time. The only problem with our stay was the cabin next to us was being torn down and demolished the whole time we were there so there was quite a bit of noise during the day. The other problem was that we love to sit by the fire at night and we were unable to because of the fire restriction at the time of our stay. My rating otherwise would have been 5 stars. Everything else about the cabin was great and was everything that we were expecting and more.
I am so sorry about the noise. I thought they were waiting until fall to dismantle their cabin. It has been a hot August. The fire pit area is so fun to use. I hope everything else went well.

Perfect in every way!
This cabin is the perfect location as well and met our large groups needs in every way. The cabin is comfortable inside and had plenty of room outside. Rose was the perfect hostess in meeting our needs as well and answering questions. I highly recommend this cabin and would definitely stay again. Thank you!
Great cabin on the lake
This cabin had all the amenities we were looking for and great lake access. We were able to use the docks to launch our kayaks and enjoyed the fire pit on the deck that overlooks the lake. Everything was clean, orderly, and exactly as described. We would definitely recommend this place to our friends.
What a great trip! Loved the area and scenery. Plenty of room for our family. Enjoyed our day trip to Yellowstone as well.
