Overview

Gardiner Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 9)

There is nothing quite like a blue ribbon trout river just outside your front door. The cabin is positioned along the west side of the Yellowstone River. This is a great place to stay when touring Yellowstone National Park. The Gardiner North Entrance (4 miles away) is the only year round entry into the most visited National Park in the United States.

Within a ten minute drive you will arrive in Mammoth Hot Springs and see for yourself all the wonders Yellowstone Park has to offer.

The cabin features a full kitchen with all dishes and utensils provided. Both Master Suites have 1 queen and 1 oversized full bed, also each suite has its own full bath. Just outside the spacious patio you will find a large fire pit with plenty of seating for all your friends and family. You will love the stunning views and relaxing atmosphere we have to offer.

About Marty Haskins

My name is Marty Haskins. In the picture is my father-in-law Frank Kroll. We purchased the cabin in November of 2005 along with my wife Kelly and Frank's wife Debbie. We bought the property thinking of how great it would be to have a 'getaway' that is riverfront, park-front, and forest service-front. We have been blessed to find out the demand for housing near Yellowstone Park. We only thought we would rent out about 6 weeks a year and now are renting the whole summer. We spend a lot of time at the cabin in the spring and fall. The picture you see is the fire pit about 10 yards from our back door. As you can see I like a big campfire.

Marty Haskins purchased this cabin in 2005

Why Marty Haskins chose Gardiner

Gardiner is a very special place in Montana and it just happens to be the only year round entrance into the park. This location is ideal for a vacation in the Park. For me it is ideal for fishing the mighty Yellowstone River. I have been vacationing in Yellowstone since I was a young boy. I grew up in rural North Dakota and had an Aunt and Uncle who lived in Billings, MT. They had two boys my age so my brother and I would come to Montana in the summer for two weeks and they would take us to the Park. Thanks to my Aunt and Uncle I now live in Bozeman, I met my beautiful wife in Billings and I now own a cabin bordering Yellowstone Park.

What makes this cabin unique

The cabin is surrounded by National Park Land, Forest Service Land, and the Yellowstone River. Best of all it is only 300 yards from the park, yet 4 miles from the entrance and the town of Gardiner. You get a secluded base camp from the park that is only minutes away. Our favorite thing to do is sit around the campfire at night while Debbie makes peach cobbler in the dutch oven.

Fully stocked spacious cabin! Paved access road and WiFi would have made it excellent

  • 4 of 5
I use VRBO rentals extensively (5-6 times a year), but never write reviews because most of the times our experience matches the reviews. I write here because there were couple of crucial information missing in the previous reviews.
Overall it is a nice cabin, with everything fully stocked. The scenery around is awesome, with the Yellowstone river flowing right in front! Marty, the owner was very helpful in providing all the information upfront. He was flexible in adjusting the dates when we had to change our travel plans slightly. Also got the refund of the security deposit promptly. In short, I agree with all the positives from previous reviews.
Couple of points missing in the previous reviews.
1) There are no paved roads from either direction for 5 miles and 3 miles. I have driven on unpaved roads in the past, but unfortunately during our week of stay it was so rugged that I was worried if the shock absorbers in my vehicle would survive for our 6 days of stay. Of course, Marty provided this information, as part of the information emails, but we never expected it to be this bad. I am not reducing a star for this because I don't know if Marty could do anything herel.
2) Had there been Wi-Fi, I still would have rated 5 stars. None of us had verizon mobile phone and without Wi-Fi, the only communication that we had was the 911 on the cell phone that Marty left in the cabin. Though there were DVDs and direct TV for entertainment, we couldn't plan our next days travel without internet connectivity. This I think is in Marty's control, since we could see the Wi-Fi endpoints for cabin 6 and 8 in our laptops/cellphones.
Hope this information is useful for everyone

Owner's Response: Thank you for giving us four stars. It means a lot to us since you travel so much and have stayed in vrbo's. I'm sorry you did not appreciate the gravel road and not having Wifi. As you stated in your review I have both of these items posted in our listing. I'm not trying to hide anything. The truth is 90% of Montana's roads are gravel. I grew up on gravel roads and I've never had a problem with it. Sometimes the road has washboard ruts but any "all terrain" vehicle will be able to handle it. This road is owned and operated by Yellowstone National Park Service. I'm sure this wasn't the only road in the Park this year that was bad. It's an ongoing battle with the Park Service. The second item was Wifi. Our neighbors on both sides have Wifi and it is painfully slow. It reminds me of the old dial-up service. They also charge $25 more per night. I get full Verizon 3g (4g sometimes) service. You can create a hot spot or just use the service directly. If you need Wifi the town of Gardiner is only 4 miles (gravel) away. Tumbleweed Cafe has free Wifi along with most coffee shops.

I hope this helps. Please don't be discouraged by this review. Honestly if we were along the paved highway it would not be as tranquil and quiet. When you come to the Park sometimes you just want to get away from the crowds. This cabin is it and its still only 300 yards away from the Park border.

FANTASTIC PLACE TO STAY!!!! Loved the cabin!!!

  • 5 of 5
This was our best vacation ever. We stayed 12 days and that was not long enough. The cabin is fabulous. It looks like an interior decorator furnished it. Perfect in every detail. The furniture is beautiful finished log furniture like was used in the newest Yellowstone Lodge. The bedrooms are large, with two queen beds in one; and much to our granddaughter's delight a bunk bed in the other bedroom, plus a queen bed for mom and dad.
The leather couch and easy chair in the living room are like new, and perfect for watching TV or any of the DVD's the owner Marty has provided. Everything is spotlessly clean. The kitchen is furnished with everything you will need in the way of spices, flour, coffee and filters, novelty teas, alum. foil, zip lock baggies, just so much more than you would ever expect in a rental. We cooked lots of our meals, and packed the cooler Marty left for us to use for our 'day trips' with sandwiches and water. He even has those wonderful 'plastic' ice squares in the freezer for use in the cooler! The river that runs behind the cabin provided us with trout for dinner one night, which we grilled on the lovely stainless grill on the back patio! We also enjoyed the fire 'pit' which is actually a large steel container with benches all around it. One night we had a fire and made Smores, and a number of other people staying in other cabins along the river joined us with their kids/grand kids for a great time of fellowship. Marty had emailed us links to some of the attractions available in Gardiner, and we took advantage of a delightful "Scenic River" raft trip, in the same river that runs behind the cabin. So fun! Gardiner is a lovely town with a number of restaurants, specialty shops, great grocery store, and really anything you might need can be purchased right there. We were so glad we rented this cabin instead of one right in Gardiner, because of the privacy and scenery it provides. Mountain views all around, green grass for the kids to play on, or to just lie in at night at look up at the amazing stars in the night sky! Virtually no bugs!
Several mornings we saw elk walking past the cabin along the river's rim. On the drive to the cabin from the North exit, we saw lots of prawn horn antelope, elk, still in velvet, and three coyotes. The area just inside of the entrance to Yellowstone, look to your left on the high cliffs and you will see LOTS of big horn mountain sheep! There is still snow on the mountains, and the weather was perfect

Wonderful Place

  • 5 of 5
The cabin was perfect! This was our summer vacation with our four children and we all had a great time. The cabin has everything you would need and plenty of space for everyone to stretch out. The fact that they had all the seasonings, dish soap, and every amenity you could think of made it perfect. The grocery store is only 4 miles away and we made many of our own meals. You are right at the North Entry of the park and in a beautiful setting. I am so glad we stayed here instead of in a Hotel. We would highly recommend this place. Thanks for everything.

Wish we could have stayed longer

  • 5 of 5
Our group of six enjoyed our short stay at this lovely, peaceful cabin. Wish we could have stayed longer. The cabin was clean, well-maintained and had everything we needed. The location was ideal for our daily road trips to eastern Yellowstone and the Beartooth Highway. An extra bonus was how close it was to Mammoth Hot Springs, an area you don't won't to miss. A wienie roast, comfortable beds, a quick load of laundry and the guys relaxing in the lounge chairs made for an ideal stopover.

Best VRBO rental we have ever rented

  • 5 of 5
WOW!! That is the first thing that comes to mine when we stayed in Marty’s cabin. I have been renting places from VRBO for over ten years and this is the best place we have stayed. It was the perfect location next to the Yellowstone River (we went white water rafting past the cabin), five miles from the entrance to the park, and away from the hustle and bustle of Gardiner. The décor throughout the cabin was great. It was the little things in the cabin that impressed the family. From the marsh mellow skewer for the fire, the wine opener for the wife, extra paper towels, spices, books and maps of the park……the list goes on and on. The patio out back was also a welcome retreat after driving the park all day. Oh did I mention the gas BBQ grill – how great is that!! We also had great communications with Marty throughout our first contact about the cabin and the quick return of the deposit check. I have posted a link of this rental on my Facebook page – that’s how much we loved this place.
Jeff, Paula, Elizabeth (18), Vanessa (13), and Matthew (9).

The journal that was in the cabin was also a nice read. Thanks again for everything.

Wonderful cabin

  • 5 of 5
Wonderful cabin! Charming, comfortable, quiet, super easy access to the park and the town of Gardiner.
We were a party of 4 adults and 2 teenage boys. 2 adults stayed in the back bedroom with their own bath, the other 4 shared the second bedroom with bath that could sleep 5.
One evening we built a fire in the fire pit in the front and had a memorable time under the stars.
Very clean, and well appointed cabin with linens, towels, washer and dryer and everything you can think of in the kitchen!
Would highly recommend it for day trips into Yellowstone. Very relaxing after a long day.
Owner very helpful all along.
