Overview

Gardiner House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + two fold up futons, 1 Bath with Mountain and River Views

Yellowstone Vacation Home is uniquely located on a hillside ringed by towering mountains, off of a gravel/dirt road. It has gorgeous views of Paradise Valley and the Yellowstone River. We recommend that you bring a 4WD or AWD vehicle, which is necessary when there has been a downpour or an extended period of rain or snow. Most of the time, and especially in June, July and August, 2WD is sufficient. It is only 11 miles (a 15 minute drive) to the town of Gardiner, the north entrance of Yellowstone Park.

The property is surrounded by pristine Forest Service lands that you can hike in, with gorgeous views in every direction. If you like fishing, you'll have easy access to Yellowstone River and to all the fishing areas in Yellowstone Park. There is even a small lake located only a half mile from the house. Wildlife photographers, this place is for you. Close to the cabin you are likely to see mule deer, elk, antelope, bald eagles, big horn sheep and many bunnies! We now have a fire pit with a view where you can make s'mores!

There are many fun things to do in the area year round. Fishing, hiking, horseback riding and river rafting trips are available nearby and, of course, all the wonders of Yellowstone Park.

This 2-story, 1200 square foot, 3 BR, 1 BA, cedar home sits on a one acre property that is fully fenced, and has a nicely maintained lawn. Pets are rarely allowed but we do make some exceptions. The three bedrooms sleep 6 to 8 people, with one queen-size bed, a pair of twin beds, a bunk bed, and two fold-up foam pads. Features include WiFi, forced air heating and air conditioning, a wood burning fireplace, washer/dryer, a satellite TV and DVD/VHS player, and a CD/cassette player. There are a variety of games, videos, and CDs for the use of our guests. No smoking please.

A cozy cabin feeling is engendered by the fir woodwork on most walls and ceilings. The spacious bathroom features two sinks and a shower-tub. The cabin has an extra large 75 gallon hot water heater. The kitchen is fully equipped, including a glass top electric range, dish washer, microwave, large refrigerator and a gas grill provided on the deck. This home is well supplied - we provide linens, towels, a hair dryer, all paper goods, hand soaps, dish washing soaps, laundry soaps, trash can liners, etc. The comfort of our guests is important to us!

You'll love the peace and quiet as you gaze at the mountains and the Yellowstone River while enjoying a meal on the wrap-around deck. You'll see the sun set over Paradise Valley in the crux of the canyon, often with spectacular colors.

Please note: Vacations in May, September and October can be a good option, because the weather is not as hot as mid-summer, and Yellowstone Park has fewer visitors.

Winter in Yellowstone Park:

During the winter, there can be up to 6 inches of snow on the roads to our vacation rental home, so a 4-wheel drive vehicle is required. The area around the cabin doesn't generally get heavy snowfalls, but Yellowstone Park is at a higher elevation and gets lots of snow.

The only car-accessible park entrance that remains open year-round is the north entrance in Gardiner. Mammoth Hot Springs, the park headquarters, is only a 5 mile drive from Gardiner. The road leading to Mammoth also remains open all winter all the way through to Tower Falls, the Lamar Valley and Cooke City. The Lamar Valley is a great place for wildlife viewing during this time of the year. Many trail heads for groomed cross-country ski trails are located along this road. The other park roads are closed to cars during the winter, from early November through mid-March. During that period those roads are only open to winter transport including snow coaches, snowmobiles, and cross-country skiers.

In Mammoth you can rent snowmobiles, cross-country skis and snowshoes and take a guided snowmobile tour or enjoy a snow coach ride that transports you to Old Faithful or to other destinations. There is also an ice skating rink open to the public at the Mammoth Hot Springs Hotel and the restaurant remains open there as well as at the Old Faithful Lodge.

Our favorite activity summer through winter is to soak in the outdoor hot spring pools at Boiling River. Its parking area is only 3 miles inside the park from Gardiner. You walk a half mile along a path bordering the Gardiner River, until you get to a place where a creek of hot geothermal water flows into the river. Rocks are piled up to create natural pools where the hot water mingles with the cold river water to create comfortable places to soak and relax. When you get out, even though the air is cold, you still feel warm as you get dressed.

Hunters are also welcome at Yellowstone Vacation Home. This area of Montana, just north of Yellowstone Park, receives hundreds of elk migrating out of Yellowstone Park each winter. There is also a year-round resident herd of elk in the mountains just above the cabin, and mule deer are abundant in the area. Hunting, in-season, is open to the public on all of the vast U.S. Forest Service lands that surround the cabin for miles. You can literally just walk out the gate and hunt in the surrounding Forest Service lands. (License required.)

If you're looking for wildlife sightings close to the cabin and beautiful views in the quiet seclusion of pristine Montana surroundings, with easy access to the attractions of Yellowstone Park, and the fishing and white water rafting opportunities of Yellowstone River, you will be delighted with your stay at our Yellowstone Vacation Home!

About Magdalena and Bruce Beall (Yosemite Vacation Rental Management)

My husband and I love this property because of its unique location in the middle of national forest, looking out over Paradise Valley and Yellowstone River. We lived here ourselves for 9 years and we love the pristine beauty of the Rocky Mountains wilderness.

Magdalena and Bruce Beall (Yosemite Vacation Rental Management) purchased this house in 1990

Why Magdalena and Bruce Beall (Yosemite Vacation Rental Management) chose Gardiner

It wasn't until we moved out in 2000 that we decided to turn this home into a vacation rental home. We wanted to share this location here with you all because of the absolute beauty of the surrounding area and the breathtaking views. The sun sets in the crux of the mountains and as you sit on the deck you'll just feel the peace and quiet permeate you as you unwind and relax ...

What makes this house unique

Wildlife can be spotted regularly, especially in the meadows of Paradise Valley that can be seen from the wrap-around deck. And of course the close proximity to Yellowstone Park is another great attraction with all of its rivers, canyons, and unique thermal features, as well as its abundant wildlife. But our favorite activity is to soak in the natural hot springs in the Gardner River close to the 45th parallel in the Park. Rafting on the Yellowstone River and horseback riding can also be enjoyed close by. Fishing can be done 200 yards from the home in the Yellowstone River - just walk down the hill and there you are! We hope you will enjoy staying here as much as we do! Bruce and Magdalena Beall

Owner's Response: Having meals on the deck is indeed very rewarding, because you'll look out on Dome Mountain, Paradise Valley and the Yellowstone River. Often elk and deer can be seen in the fields below as they come down from the mountains in the mornings and evenings. You might even see an occasional wolf pass by! The property is surrounded by Forest Service lands, so if you are looking for a peaceful getaway, only 11 miles from Yellowstone Park, this is the place for you.

Great Cabin with Amazing views

  • 5 of 5
What an awesome place for a mountain getaway. The cabin has everything you need and the views off the back deck are spectacular. The home is extremely clean and the owners take great care of the property - while there is not much cell service - they provide a phone for any local calls and the Internet service worked well and you can stay in touch if need be that way. The owners were very easy to deal with and were always easy to reach before or during my stay. But my favorite aspect of this cabin is the location - just sits in a beautiful area with views of paradise valley that are awesome - and the drive back to the cabin is scenic as well and easy to spot wildlife - elk, antelope, deer and a herd of big horn sheep all easy to spot going to and from cabin durning my visit. Also just a short drive into Gardiner and the Yellowstone entrance. Fall was a great time to visit and experience the northern part of Yellowstone - all kinds of wildlife spotted in the park of course including wolves and a grizzly bear. Just a perfect place for a Montana getaway - will certainly return.

Perfect setting with outstanding views!

  • 5 of 5
We loved staying here during our 4 week National Park vacation. The setting is absolutely perfect and the views outstanding. We had several sunny 90 degree days and several cold rainy days. Loved spending our days touring our first National Park. We saw many bison, a trumpet swan, numerous elk and bighorn sheep. While shopping at the Gardiner Market we were closed in by elk in the parking lot - a first for us! Thank you for allowing our "boys" to join us here. They really enjoyed the fenced yard!!

Well equipped home in awesome location!

  • 5 of 5
Thank you so much for sharing your vacation home with us! It was very well equipped and organized and in an awesome location! On our trips into Yellowstone each day we saw lots of animals! On the last day we saw a moose and a mama bear with 3 cubs!

We would definitely recommend your home to others, and maybe can come again ourselves. We are now on our way to Cody, then 2 days at Old Faithful Lodge, finishing at Jackson Hole. The scenery out here is very beautiful; wish we could stay longer!

Outstanding Location

  • 5 of 5
Thanks for opening your home to us – it’s the perfect get-away place. The location is outstanding! We had everything from 80 degrees to snow and enjoyed it all! We enjoyed a couple of fires outside (in the fire pit) and a couple inside (in the fireplace). We saw hundreds of bison - our best viewing was the road to the northeast entrance and the side road off that road (Lamar). We saw tons of elk, pronghorn and deer. Our absolute favorite dinners were at the Lighthouse Restaurant. Amazing food - local - organic. Thanks for the coolers and everything else you supplied in this well stocked home. Yellowstone is an amazing place - we're off to the Tetons…
