BARN ON THE BANKS OF YELLOWSTONE NATIONAL PARK

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.

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.

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! :)

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! :)

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.

We want to to back!

Nice, comfy place. Great views of the mountains and good fishing below in the river. I caught two nice trout and hooked a third that got away. We loved the small town atmosphere and quick access to Yellowstone Park. My only suggestion is to reduce some of the stuff in the living area. At least once a day someone cracked their elbow on the white retro stove at the end of the dining table.

We really enjoyed our time at Barn on the Banks. It's very comfortable and thoughtfully decorated. We were greeted daily with Elk and their babies, and the view was spectacular! The proximity to Yellowstone is ideal. The owners are lovely and super helpful. We highly recommend it!!

We had a wonderful week at Barn on the Banks

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at Barn on the Banks for a week along with our two young children and the grandparents. It was a perfect week. The Barn was not only comfortable, it was very conveniently located only minutes away from the North Entrance of Yellowstone park. We visited the park every day - spent all day in the park and then came back to the barn at night. We enjoyed the lovely deck with gorgeous view of the mountains and the river. Linda and Ken thought of everything that would make our family comfortable. We had coolers and picnic supplies to help us with lunches every day. The kids had games, toys, books, movies and even fishing rods to play with. The grandparents loved the view, unique decorations in the Barn (they took tons of pictures) and the large deck. We had dinners and coffee on the deck every day. We will come back soon.

Best location to see the most animals in the Park!

  • 5 of 5
Barn on the Banks is a fantastic place to stay! The location couldn't be more perfect for park access. The Barn is very clean and the fully equipped kitchen really helped us not have to eat out every night. The beds were very comfortable and the barn is more like a fully-furnished house! Plenty of room for our group to comfortably hang out on the deck and living room. Ken & Linda live right next door and were available to answer questions and give us tips, but were never intrusive at all. It was fun to be able to tell them the list of animals we saw in the park each day. The end of May was a great time to come and see the animals with their babies. We saw grizzlies, black bear, wolves, elk, pronghorn, bison, moose, uinta, bald eagles, osprey, mountain goats, and ram. The road from Tower to Canyon Village opened later in the week which saved a lot of time and allowed us to see more black bears. Perfect time to visit the park & perfect place to stay!
