Gardiner Barn Rental Photos and Description

Barn, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 10)

Wow..what a view..love the loft! You may not have been 'Born in a Barn', but here's your chance to stay in one and VACATION 'Till the Cows Come Home'! We invite you to stay in our barn loft and call it your home, while you relax and enjoy our nation's largest and oldest National Park.

Barn on the Banks is located in a quiet area on the outskirts of Gardiner, Montana. We are less than 1 mile to the park's North Gate Entrance, famous for the Teddy Roosevelt Arch, and within walking distance to down town shops, restaurants, a grocery store, post office and excellent trout fishing.

Yellowstone river runs through this small town that is nestled at the foothills of Electric Peak, a majestic mountain that carries snow throughout most of the year. We are located at the end of a lane with no through traffic. Our loft overlooks the confluence of the Gardiner and Yellowstone rivers, and has unobstructed spectacular views of the mountains. We border the river and we are directly across from Yellowstone Park.

A short walk down the bank takes you to the river's edge where you can sit and enjoy nature, including frequent fliers of ducks, geese, bald eagles, and osprey, or possibly see a family of otters playing in the water.

From our deck you can view hummingbirds, mountain songbirds, and wildlife including deer, elk, Big Horn sheep, Pronghorn (antelope), or possibly see a bear, wolf, coyote, or bison.

One summer while sitting on the deck of the barn, my husband witnessed a doe deer giving birth to twin fawns. We frequently saw mama deer and her little ones close to our house and barn throughout the summer. Now we've seen yet another 'Near Barn Birth'! Over Memorial Weekend, we and our guests witnessed an Elk giving birth just a few feet below the deck of the Barn! This is truly an area you'll be able to experience nature.

The barn has never housed animals, the bottom of the barn is used for private storage. The barn loft was renovated in 2008-2009, and features a full kitchen with all new appliances, comfortable seating in the living area, and a large deck that looks into Yellowstone Park. You can sit by the fire on a chilly night, or cool down with air conditioning on a hot summer day.

There are amazing views from all areas of the loft made easy by several large windows. The master bedroom has a king bed, private bath, air conditioning, a fireplace and your own private balcony to sit, relax and enjoy the sunset.

The 'Queen Room' catches the morning sun, and has the ambiance of a fireplace as well. The 'bunk room' has two bunk beds, one which is a double bed topped by a twin, the other is a single over a single. The sofa in the living room converts to a full size bed.

The deck above the river features a gas grill and seating for your outdoor relaxation and enjoyment. So come and stay with us, enjoy our 'Barn on the Banks', and make your vacation one you will remember.

- Your Hosts, Ken and Linda.

About The Owner

An answer to prayer brought us to this little piece of heaven. We moved to Montana in 1977 with our then small children to follow a teaching job in Gardiner. We both grew up in the Midwest on Farm and Ranches in Rural Nebraska. We have always loved the mountains and have enjoyed horseback riding, hiking, skiing, hunting, canoeing, and lots of other outdoor activities in beautiful Montana.

Why The Owner chose Gardiner

We love animals, Mountains, the great outdoors, and wanted to raise our children in a small town... so what better place to live than in Montana next to Yellowstone Park!? The barn was built in 1994 but was never used to house animals, even though we had horses, along with several other animals our kids raised. As our kids left home, so did most of the animals...thank goodness! In 2008, a long time dream began to take shape as we began renovating the barn loft into a 1100 SF 3 bedroom, 2 bath apartment. 'Barn on the Banks of Yellowstone Park' was open for business as a Vacation Rental in the Spring of 2009. Much of the decor was directly inspired from my early childhood memories of Country Life. Several old things from the Ranch & Farm... 'treasured Junk', have been re-purposed as part of the Barn decor ...giving it an eclectic charm to make you feel right at home...even if you weren't born in a barn. So please come stay in the 'Barn' while you vacation in the Nation's oldest National Park. ....it has all the modern conveniences and comforts of home...even running water and indoor plumbing! :)

What makes this barn unique

We are located just 1 mile from the North Gate Entrance to Yellowstone Park which is the only entrance open year around. The 'Barn on the Banks' is open year around as well, and has views that will take your breath away as you look directly into Yellowstone Park, the Yellowstone River below, over our small town of Gardiner, or gaze upon 'Electric Peak'. Our property borders Yellowstone Park and the Yellowstone River which means that we have lots of wildlife around our property. We have had 3 'Near Barn Births' as a doe deer gave birth to twins and a cow Elk gave birth to her calf just a few feet below the Barn deck! The 'Near Barn' experiences are something our guests and we are still talking about. Because we border Yellowstone River, some of the best trout fishing around is directly below the Barn. Our convenient location is perfect for experiencing Yellowstone in the Winter as we have some of the best cross-country skiing, wolf watching, and snowshoeing just minutes away. We absolutely love it here and have never regretted the move from Nebraska to God's Country! :)

Restorative Medicine for the Soul

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I have been in love with Yellowstone Park since the early 1990's when we first brought our son to the park. Until we found the "Barn on the Banks" we never had time to fully explore the park. This was our second stay in the "Barn" and both experiences were exceptional.

The location of the "Barn" provides us with ready and easy access to Yellowstone Park and the proximity to the Yellowstone River is excellent for fishing and hiking. This trip we actually had time to enjoy the warm and healing waters of the Chico Hot Spring and to explore some of the local food establishments.

The fully stocked kitchen at the "Barn" allowed also for the preparation of our own meals which added to the unhurried and home like pace of our vacation. For our part we will return here again and again if health allows, to enjoy the hospitality of the "Barn."

Rejuvenating Retreat

  • 5 of 5
The Barn on the Banks was the perfect place to get away from the demands of the day. (I was here on "business" rather than vacation.) When we first arrived it was apparent that this was more than just a place to stay, it was a home-away-from-home, incredibly clean; Ken and Linda warm and hospitable and available if we had any needs. There are a lot of small details that we began to spy over time. Linda has a creative touch to the decor that is amusing. The Barn is well stocked with everything needed for full meals and enjoyable adventures right outside the front door like fishing tackle and binoculars to watch the elk and antelope across the river. My favorite activity began right before the sunrise . . . a cup of coffee, an easy chair with a view of Electric Mountain right out the window. Every morning I would watch the sun visit the top of the peak and then slowly make its way down the slope. The "sunrise show" was different every morning as the light danced differently depending upon the morning clouds. Ken and Linda are wonderful hosts. They asked us multiple times whether or not we needed anything. I would highly recommend the Barn on the Banks.

The Barn, in name only

  • 5 of 5
The barn was beautifully appointed, well insulated and incredibly comfortable. The kitchen was well stocked--more like being in your own home. Things you might have forgotten to bring, were already there--like coffee filters, dishwasher detergent, spices, coffee grinder. There were no creaking floorboards. Beds and pillows were amazingly comfortable. When you closed your bedroom door you were enveloped in quiet. TV sound did not penetrate. Of course wonderful views of the river and of Yellowstone. Easy hike to the river bank. Even though we turned off the heat before leaving in the morning, the place was comfortable when we returned in the evening although ambient temperature was in the 40's. The barn was planned, stocked and decorated more like a second home than a rental. Linda and Ken were helpful and considerate offering anything that we might need. I do plan to return. Absolutely perfect!!

The Best!!

  • 5 of 5
The Barn on the Banks is absolutely wonderful. The view from the deck as well as all the rooms in the house and the beautiful gardens (lots of birds) is beyond belief. Ken & Linda have thought of everything a traveler could possibly need, including a small retractable clothes line, safety pins and numerous containers of hand lotion (high altitude, low humidity and dry skin). The proximity to Yellowstone is so convenient (you can see the Roosevelt Arch and the ranger station entrance) and it was such a pleasure to return "home" at the end of a long day in the park. If we ever have a chance to make the trip again, the "Barn" will be our destination.

The barn was a perfect location for our week visit to Yellowstone. Ken and Linda were the perfect hosts. The balcony overlooking the river was a perfect place for relaxing and enjoying nature.

Barn on the Banks home

  • 5 of 5
Linda & Ken are very accommodating and around to offer information and help when needed if any problems arise. The "Barn" is quite comfortable and it's proximity to the north entrance of the park is ideal. Gardiner, itself, is a cute touristy town with good restaurants and several places to go rafting or horseback riding. The next closest town is Livingston which is closer to Bozeman. The descent to the river is rather rugged and I would not recommend it for older folks or young children w/o adult supervision. The home is well maintained and has all necessary amenities and is ideal for anyone wanting to visit Yellowstone. It is only 1.5 hrs from Bozeman airport for those flying in. I would definitely return if the need arises.
