YELLOWSTONE LAKEFRONT LUXURY LOG HOME - 20 MIN. FROM YELLOWSTONE PARK

Island Park House Rental Photos and Description

4 bedrooms, 3 full bathrooms, sleeps 10 in 4 queen beds and 2 twins

Lakefront Log Home on Henry's Lake is a waterfront, 2352 sq.ft. 2-story vacation home located in Island Park, Idaho, only 20 minutes from Yellowstone Park and West Yellowstone, MT. It has 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms and sleeps 10 people comfortably in 4 queen beds and 2 twins. The home is situated on a 1.24 acre property in a quiet neighborhood of half a dozen homes. It is constructed of 14 inch diameter hand-peeled logs, creating a cozy and rustic lodge atmosphere. The deck offers a 220 degree view of the lake, unobstructed by houses and framed with attractive hand-peeled log railings. It has a BBQ grill and outdoor seating, where you'll enjoy quality time with friends and family as you gaze upon ponds frequented by wild ducks and geese, and the vast lake beyond. The beautiful mountains of the Grand Tetons loom in the distance, completing a panoramic view of Rocky Mountain splendor.

The home is at a perfect location, as it is close to Yellowstone National Park (West Yellowstone, MT) and Teton National Park.

Having the lake off the backyard makes it great for a fishing vacation since it is situated on one of the finest trophy still water fisheries in North America. Locals catch and release over 40 trout a day using wet fly techniques. Fishing is excellent because Henry's Lake has abundant populations of Cutthroat, Brook, and trophy hybrid Cutbow trout. The largest fish in Henry's Lake are the rainbow/cutthroat hybrids that tip the scales up to 16 pounds. The state record for brook trout weighs in at 7.2 pounds and was caught in Henry’s Lake. The home has a private marina nearby with boat launch available for your use. A boat rental company, Wild Rose Ranch, is five minutes away. Within a 30 minute drive, you can fish the nearby blue ribbon Madison river, Henry's Fork of the Snake River, Hebgen Lake, and Quake Lake. Yellowstone Lake is 1.5 hours away where there are no limits on Lake trout. The fishing off the backyard is excellent in the Fall (September and October). A recent guest caught and released 3 fish an hour (many over 20') with a float tube and caught an 8 pound cuttbow in October 2011, just in front of the house.

You'll enjoy returning to this lovely quiet log home after a day of fishing or exploring Yellowstone National Park.

The home is situated on a 1.24 acre property in a quiet neighborhood of half a dozen homes. The large lawn is well maintained and the owner provides sport equipment for outside activities. The back deck has a BBQ grill and outdoor seating. You'll enjoy quality time with friends and family as you gaze upon ponds and the vast lake beyond. Gorgeous views of Henry's Lake and the mountains will encourage you to relax and unwind as you take in the peace and quiet. The lakeside firepit will make beautiful memories on a starry night.

Surrounded by Targhee National Forest, the property is visited by elk, deer, moose, and a red fox. Ducks and geese frequent the property's ponds, while local osprey cruise the shoreline, providing excellent bird watching opportunities. Coyotes and owls can often be heard at night outside the house. The latest hatch of goslings and ducklings are fun to watch as the eat they backyard grass in the spring. In the fall, we have seen muskrats chase ducks around the property ponds. A glimpse of a short tailed weasel can be seen in the spring, controlling the local mouse population.

You will love the custom western decor with its attractive hand-peeled log furniture, dining table, chairs, and rustic aspen beds. The great room has a beautiful new oak floor with three comfortable leather couches with seating for 9, situated around a 46' LCD flat screen TV with satellite service, Digital Video Recorder (DVR) and DVD player and Ipod entertainment system with surround sound. The white tail deer on the walls add to the rustic charm. The adjoining kitchen features a new large stainless steel refrigerator, new microwave, new gas stove, and new dishwasher. It is fully equipped with anything you might need to cook a meal, from a Thanksgiving turkey dinner to a crock pot meal.

The large dining room offers magnificent views of Henry's Lake. It features a wagon wheel chandelier with antique lanterns and a 10 person - 3 foot by 7 foot cedar dining room table. You'll enter the Trout Room (the master bedroom) from the dining room. It has a queen size bed and fantastic views of Henry's Lake and the distant mountains. The adjoining bathroom shared with the Elk Room features two sinks, a shower and an attractive claw foot bathtub.

The Elk Room has a queen size bed and a view of Saddle Mountain where herds of elk can be seen in the fall. Exquisite elk antler light sconces grace this room.

The Yellowstone Room has a queen size bed and is located just off the great room under the loft. It has an adjoining full bathroom with a sink, tub and shower.

The log staircase in the great room leads to the Bear Room in the loft where a queen size bed and two twin beds are located. The adjoining bathroom has a sink and shower.

In West Yellowstone visit the Grizzly and Wolf Discovery Center, where you can view grizzlies and wolves in a natural habitat. Or visit the IMAX theater with several nature oriented films offered daily.

In Island Park you'll enjoy visiting Big Springs, which is the major head water spring for the Henry's Fork River. The Upper and Lower Mesa Falls in Island Park are also well worth a visit.

Guestbook comments from the owner
Henry's Lake Log house is a great place as a base for exploring YNP, and also the wonderful places around this end of Idaho - Harriman State Park and Hebgen Lake. We especially enjoyed sitting on the porch watching the sun come up, and in the afternoon enjoying the serenity of the lake. Thanks for the use of the beautiful home. Guests from Colorado.

We are a family of avid fishermen that enjoy the outdoors. We visited the area to see Yellowstone National Park and fish. While fishing at Henrys Lake, we discovered this home for sale. We have enjoyed working on the home, designing the remodel, and creating many of the custom furnishings.

Greg and Roxane (owners) purchased this house in 2010

Being fishermen, we have rented many lakefront properties. This home and its location took our breath away. Initially the home had a floor plan problem that was remodeled in the winter of 2010. We loved sitting on the steps, facing the lake and purchased a custom log bench to enjoy that view. We feel privileged to own such a beautiful home.

We have loved and guests tell us that the bench on the deck is one of the most peaceful places. Months later, they tell us that they still think about the moments spent there. The fire pit is also a time where groups enjoy closeness that is rarely found in our busy lives. The home is close enough to supermarkets to get needed supplies, yet far enough away to feel secluded, with only the sounds of nature. With no outside lights in the area, the light from the stars and moon are breathtaking. Many of the furnishings are custom made using antique components, providing a level of quality that is rarely found in a vacation rental. The animal life still surprises us. One day the deck light turned on to reveal a red fox. Another day looking out a widow early one morning, we noticed a herd of elk walking though the property grounds. I keep trying to get a picture of the quick short tailed weasel, keeping the mice under control in the spring. The latest hatch of goslings and ducklings are fun to watch as they eat the backyard grass in the spring. In the fall, we have seen muskrats chase ducks around the property ponds.

My dream home!!!

  • 5 of 5
The location of your home could not be any better. It's centrally located with the best views in the 3 state area. For a Cajun from HOT Louisiana, nothing was better than sitting on the porch in the morning drinking coffee and relaxing with the view of Henry Lake. The home was very well stocked with amenities, spacious, spread out and wasn't crowded. Smores by the fire pit was a nightly treat for the children and adults. Not sure of the year but we'll be back to your cabin in the future.
On the first morning of our stay a cow moose and her calf walked north between the house and fire pit and to the lakeshore. They swam the lake and disappeared into the trees on the north end. When I receive the photos of the moose swimming I'll forward to you.
Thanks for everything.

Quiet, beautiful, relaxing and near Yellowstone!

  • 5 of 5
This home was spacious and comfortable for two families of four to enjoy. We loved the decor and had everything that we needed while staying in this beautiful log home during our visit to Yellowstone National Park (short, easy drive to west entrance). We LOVED the covered porch- we all spent many hours relaxing there while taking in the gorgeous views! The owners were wonderful - very helpful and accommodating. We would not hesitate to recommend this amazing home!

Over and Above

As a gospel singing group, we travel alot and see many types of properties. The cabin was very spacious and well laid out. Wow, awesome view and beautiful surroundings! But that is not all, these folks provide so much more of all the little things you need for a great trip. You know those little things that are too small to pack but you need like food seasonings, fishing rods, coolers, hair dryers, marshmellow sticks, campfire wood....etc. If your coming to Yellowstone...STAY HERE!

Wonderful stay - Exceeded Expectations

  • 5 of 5
We booked this rental property for our family based on the positive reviews and had high hopes for our visit. Let me also say that we have rented vacation homes before and knew what to expect, but were presently surprised by all the extras this place has. It is really the small things that make all difference, plenty of cooking supplies, i.e. mixing bowls, measuring cups, crockpot!, etc. Essentially everything you need to live comfortable away from home and much more than we have experienced in the past.

For me, someone who struggles with back pain from a compressed spine due to a car crash, the beds are always a hit or miss. I really need a supportive mattress without it being rock hard. Too many hotels either have rock hard lumpy beds or super soft cloud like beds which offer no support. This cabin has very nice high end mattresses which are super comfortable and not at all worn out, that is they offer great support and were comfortable to all members of my family. Sorry for the rant on beds, but anyone with back pain will appreciate the detail!

We did a lot of research on location before landing on this cabin and the location is perfect. You are truly 20 minutes (or just under that) from the West gate to Yellowstone and your other option would be to stay in town about 5 minutes from the gate. We are very glad we avoided the over crowded town and stayed in this peaceful and beautiful setting. We will be coming back...some day!

5 star cabin and property owners!

  • 5 of 5
I just wanted to say thanks for everything. Our family had a great vacation and everyone loved your cabin! We all understand why you and your family love the area as the scenery is incredible. We also appreciated how the cabin was furnished with family friendly items such as high chair, playard, children’s dishes and games for inside and outside!

Also, Roxane was beyond helpful and a pleasure to deal with. A definite 5 star experience all around! Thanks again, Ryan and family, Illinois.
