QUIET HOME ON THE YELLOWSTONE RIVER, A WALK AWAY TO YELLOWSTONE PARK

Gardiner Castle Rental Photos and Description

1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, sleeps 1-3

PARK PLACE is a tranquil spot for those looking for 'a home away from home' while in Yellowstone Park. We offer a comfortable place with excellent location right on the Yellowstone River bank. Here you can rest after your daily adventures in our National Park and forests.

Our home has the feel of a cabin in the mountains but with all the comforts of the city. We are located within walking distance from downtown Gardiner. The main bedroom is located upstairs with a balcony that opens to beautiful views of the mountains and right on the Yellowstone River. You will love the sound of the river or relaxing here after a day of hiking or exploring the Yellowstone wonders.

Those who love fly fishing will have a chance to do it in our Blue-Ribbon Trout fishing access to Yellowstone River. We have been told some of the best fishing spots are directly bellow our place. We can also arrange guided fishing tours with one of the best anglers in town.

Just outside your front door you might encounter visitors such as Elk, Deer, Bison or even spot a Bear swimming in the Yellowstone River. Bald Eagles and Ospreys can be seen also. We are sure you will love staying with us as much as we enjoy living here.

About Clay Willis

In 1978, I was on my way to Alaska to work on the pipelines and happened to stop in Gardiner to explore the famous Yellowstone National Park. I was so taken by the beauty of Montana that I have never left. Instead of Alaska, I was hired by the National Park Service. I retired in 1984 and started working on turning my property into a place where friends and family could also come to experience the wonders of Yellowstone Park. And that includes you!

Clay Willis purchased this castle in 1980

Why Clay Willis chose Gardiner

Park Place used to be a hotel for hunters in Gardiner called 'The Cottage Inn'. I bought it in 1980 because I saw the potential of turning the place into something that incorporated the Pioneer spirit of the West with the all the comforts of a city.

I found a diamond in the rough and have worked since then to polish it into a unique home.

What makes this castle unique

Park Place sits uniquely just downstream from the convergence of the Gardiner and the Yellowstone Rivers. It sits beneath Eletric Peak, surrounded by majestic mountains ' where the deer and the antelope play'. Big Sky Montana where the skies are not cloudy all day.

When you come you will understand why I never left, and just like me will have an overdose of Yellowstone Park's Grandeur and be hooked for life.

Excellent Accommodations!

  • 5 of 5
What a great place to land if you are exploring Yellowstone National Park. Park Place is full of character, charm and the sound of the river ahhhhhhh.

The owner pays attention to the small details. Park Place is clean, quiet and everything we needed was included.

Bill is a wonderful host and if you have the chance to meet him you will enjoy great conversation.

Thanks again for wonderful hospitality!

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5
Great accommodation. The 3 of us loved staying there. Very convenient for anything in Gardiner and into Yellowstone. Comfortable beds, the kids especially liked the nook bed. My only minor complaint was that the wifi connection was quite slow and cut-out a few times when trying to email pics back home.

Thanks for a great stay, we really enjoyed Gardiner and your guest suite.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review Todd. We hope to see you and your family again in the future. The internet is with the best provider in the area. We aren't in the big city and these are some of the restrictions / limitations one has when we live where we live.

Clay

GREAT Location

  • 5 of 5
I spent 4 nights here in May 2014 and give the place 5 stars. It is located just blocks from the North entrance to Yellowstone. It has every amenity you could hope for in a rental property. Loved the fully stocked kitchen. I will reserve this home for my next visit to Yellowstone.

Yellowstone Christmas at Park Place

  • 5 of 5
We loved our stay at park place. Coming in on a dark and stormy night to this warm and inviting home was wonderful. We were able to explore Yellowstone, and Gardiner for the time we were there. Park place had everything we needed. Just perfect! Thanks Clay and Bill.

Great Property and Location

  • 5 of 5
We had so much fun in Gardiner and loved this property. There was plenty of room for our family of 4! The home was very clean and the kitchen was well equipped, which was important to us as we like to eat in. Gardiner is an adorable town with friendly people and plenty of wildlife. We loved opening the door to find elk and mule deer just feet away. At night we could hear elk bugling in the distance.This unit is literally a few minutes walk from the Yellowstone entrance. Although we didn't get to go in to the park (due to the government shut down), we found alternative things to do thanks to suggestions from Clay and a few locals. Thanks for opening this unit to us. We may be back when the park in open :o)!!
