SPECTACULAR LOG HOME ON CREEK, 1/2 MILE FROM YELLOWSTONE PARK!

Cooke City House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 or 3 bdrms, 1 or 2 baths (Sleeps 4-6)

Location, Location, Location!! This is clearly the most spectacular vacation rental home we've seen anywhere in Yellowstone, and we love to share!

We're at the gateway to YELLOWSTONE'S Lamar Valley, considered the SERENGETI OF AMERICA! The herds of wild animals are spectacular, and unique to this last holdout of 'wild America' !

Our home is less than a mile from Yellowstone Park!! You can enjoy this amazing wilderness setting right from the house, and yet be a half minute's walk from the Log Cabin Cafe, the Silvergate town park, and 2 general stores! Wildlife, world class trout fishing, a family friendly mountain town, lakes, waterfalls, hiking, and even shopping are at your doorstep. You can't find a more desirable proximity to Yellowstone Park! This area of America is has held its character - you'll find caring people, comfort and true American wilderness !

Our family's vacation homes are situated in the beautiful Silvergate valley, less than a mile from Yellowstone Park, and only a few hundred yards from Wyoming's Absaroka Wilderness Area. Our location gives our guests the opportunity to walk to the town park with swings and teeter totters, walk to 4 different creeks with waterfalls in less than 1/2 hour, fish from the property, and yet be seconds from great food and gift shops! The hiking trail into Yellowstone Park from the cabins is amazing !! After mountain run-off we have a great sandy beach on the property!

We have a 5 nite minimum stay , and from MAY 18 - SEPT 6 we have a 7 nite minimum. Remember, we have a no pets/smoking policy. thanks !!

Our home, called the Indian Paintbrush, can be rented as either a 2bdrm/1bath, or a 3bdrm/2bath. During peak season, (May18 - Sept6), we only rent this home as a 3 bdrm, Outside of this time period you may rent it as a 2bdrm or 3bdrm. Please see the rate info for both options at the bottom of this listing.

Our home is comfortable, romantic, and just what you imagine when you think of a mountain log home! It has big mountain views, the sound of the creek, handcrafted logs, a huge rock fireplace, large living room and a spectacular sunroom! We have two dining areas, and a bar-height counter for socializing. The home is all on one level. The private deck boasts an unforgettable setting with a pristine forest, creek and mtn view! We frequently see moose eating willows in our yard, summer and winter. This is an ideal combination of mountains and a small village.

As a 2 bdrm home, (this option available in mid season only, 4/1 - May 17 and Sept 7 - Nov 30), each bedroom has a queen size bed. One bedroom has a play loft in it, and the other bedroom has a sink. You get exclusive use of the entire home and property with the exception of the Master Suite. We simply lock off that room and it remains vacant.

If you rent the home as a 3 bedroom, you will enjoy the glorious master suite. It is spacious, with a king size bed, a creek view couch, and a private, 1 person soaking tub on the deck. The outdoor soaking tub (swimming suit advisable) is available June 15 - Aug 31. The master bedroom has the sound of the creek coming in it's many windows. It is very private with its own yard and a 3/4 bath. It has fishing just a few steps away and a gorgeous mtn view from the bed!

If you need another bedroom, our fantastic one room Cabin, the Mountain Bluebell, (vrbo.com/354935), is only a 30 sec walk away. It sits in a secluded, creekside location with it's deck right over the water! It has a queen bed, a kitchenette with a single burner electric stovetop, a microwave, toaster oven, coffee maker, and apartment size refrigerator. There is a 'full+' bath in the cabin with both a shower, and a fabulous deep soaking tub w/hand held spray. It has a love seat, and a small dining table. This cabin has one of the best views in the valley!! What a place to explore Yellowstone from !! (That is, if you can force yourself to leave the deck)

Our family's vacation homes are situated in the beautiful Silvergate valley, less than a mile from Yellowstone Park, and only a few hundred yards from Wyoming's Absaroka Wilderness Area. Our location gives our guests the opportunity to walk to the town park with swings and teeter totters, walk to 4 different creeks with waterfalls in less than 1/2 hour, fish from the property, and yet be seconds from great food and gift shops! The hiking trail into Yellowstone Park from the cabins is amazing !! After mountain run-off we have a great sandy beach on the property!

The region provides enough variety for weeks of adventure. You will find another collection of restaurants, gift shops, and a larger general store just three miles down the road in the small, 1880's mining town of Cooke City. Some day trips include driving over the amazing Beartooth Pass, described by Charles Kuralt as 'the most scenic drive in America'! Numerous lakes provide great car picnicking, or plan to reach Red Lodge for a game of golf! An hour drive to the West takes you to Mammoth, the park headquarters. A drive through Sunlight Basin to Cody, Wyoming, (80 miles), is a must. Every night Cody offers its professional rodeo with great kids events. Also try the museum, golfing or excellent whitewater rafting in the Shoshone Canyon.

We're confident that you'll enjoy the mountain experience of a lifetime in any of our homes! You can unwind and enjoy nature, float the Yellowstone river, relax in some hot springs, or challenge yourself to new heights. It's all here, and we'll do our best to show you some big, Western hospitality! We are now taking reservations for the 2012 season. Remember we have a 5 nite minimum, and in July, a 7 nite minimum in the Paintbrush. You'll wish you had more! See you soon!

John, Kate and Emily Mickus live in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. The Northeast Entrance and the Beartooth Mountains have been their favorite place to recreate for decades! 'We just love this area, its like going on a remote backcountry trip but still having some great amenities and the comfort of home!' John's parents purchased the property in 1975 and have created a spectacular combo of vintage log homes and modern comforts.

Combine this with the amazing creekside location in the Yellowstone ecosystem, and you have a vacation to remember! We're sure you will be impressed with the wildlife, mountains, and especially the beauty of our property. We look forward to hosting your family!

The Owner purchased this house in 1975

Because this is the center of the best wildlife ecosystem in the country. It is cool in the summer, and you won't find crowds here!

You'll enjoy our family's personal touch. We take excellent care of our homes, and provide you with all of the comforts you'll need.

Amazing place. Perfect cabin

  • 5 of 5
The location is perfect. About a mile from the northeast entrance so very close to the Lamar valley. Very clean and well appointed. Owners are very easy to deal with. Perry the property manager is helpful and friendly. Great little trout stream out the back door. Awe inspiring views. Great wood burning fireplace. A gem all around. Will be back.

Amazing location, beautiful cabin, lovely Montana town

  • 5 of 5
This cabin in Silvergate, MT was perfect for our family get together this summer. The location couldn't have been more ideal - a mile from the Northeast Yellowstone park entrance, with easy access to Lamar Valley and many other beautiful areas of the Park with great wildlife spotting. The owners were helpful and kind, and the caretakers had great local suggestions during our visit.

After a day at the park, we loved sitting on the quiet back porch in the sunshine overlooking the creek and looking for mountain goats on the range (you can rent scopes from the General Store across the street). The amenities in the cabin were just what we needed for a relaxing vacation - comfortable beds, a fireplace for chilly evenings, outside campfire for s'mores, cooking basics, and a sunroom and dining table overlooking the creek. Who needs TV & cable when you have all this beauty around you (although we did enjoy bringing DVDs for a few evenings).

The friendly, small town (don't miss breakfast at the Log Cabin Cafe) was an extra bonus. We loved our stay, and highly recommend this cabin for 2 - 3 couples or a family.

Grandma's Adventure

Grandma's Adventure
  • 5 of 5
Our family of 7 stayed in The Indian Paintbrush. It is a delightful place as pictured and the location is ideal. The scenery takes your breath away. We spent a long day touring Yellowstone Park and after the congestion around the geysers and the lodges, we were grateful for the solitude of Silver Gate. From the house, you can hike to several beautiful spots. One of our hikes was enhanced by a delay when 8 buffalo decided to share our path. So much fun! The Lamar Valley is a pleasant drive where we saw elk, deer, prong horn, bears, osprey, goats and huge herds of buffalo. The kitchen has everything you need to prepare simple meals. However, there are limited groceries available in Silver Gate and Cooke City so you do need to be prepared. If you don't want to cook, the Log Cabin Cafe is just a skip away. The food is good and reasonably price. Cooke City also has good places to eat. Don't miss the Bear Claw Bakery for breakfast. The water at The Indian Paintbrush is excellent so there is no need for bottled water. This house has no tv, no cell service and limited wifi. Three teen-age boys with earbuds as part of their anatomy were a concern. They never once complained. In fact, I think being "unplugged" is what made this vacation so special. All of us would love to return to The Indian Paintbrush.

Yellowstone Wildlife

  • 5 of 5
Beautiful cabin with a rustic feel right on the river. Less than a one minute drive to the best parts of Yellowstone. Saw a fox and a moose right off the back deck, which feels like a dock (its that close to the river). The cabin has everything you could need and then some. John and Kate were great hosts. If you're looking for wildlife in Yellowstone this is the place to be....

Total Relaxation and Comfort! The setting of our acreage is one of a kind. We're in a small mountain town, yet you can enjoy Big views, the sound of the creek, mature trees, lots of sunshine, and amazing wildlife. Many pristine hikes leave from our property, yet you can walk less than a minute to 2 general stores and the famous Log Cabin Cafe! Cooke City is only 3 miles up the highway, or take the dirt back road! Lots to do and see! Easy and beautiful hiking trail along creek into Yellowstone's serenity! This is the most wild and scenic part of the United States!
