DEER MEADOW VACATION HOME ONLY 7 MILES FROM WEST YELLOWSTONE

West Yellowstone House Rental Photos and Description

This is a 1700 sq. ft. two-story 3 bedroom/2 bathroom vacation rental home

Located only 7 miles from West Yellowstone, the west entrance to Yellowstone National Park, our vacation home built in 2005 sits on a gentle grassy slope ringed by forests and mountains. The Great Room offers a spectacular view of Lionhead Mountain and the surrounding peaks of the Continental Divide.

This 1700 sq. ft. two-story 3 bedroom/2 bathroom vacation rental home sits on a half acre property. It has a deck and patio with lounge and deck chairs. A garage is available to store your travel supplies, car topper, roof racks and boxes. The surrounding Forest Service lands provide a quiet setting amidst a small and sparse grouping of mostly seasonal homes. The western style interior furnishings are beautifully coordinated and engender a tastefully rustic atmosphere. The cabin sleeps up to 8 people, with two queen-size beds, two twin beds and a queen sleeper sofa. Wireless high speed internet access has been installed - just bring your laptop(s). We don't allow pets. No smoking, please.

Features include forced air heating and air conditioning throughout, laundry room with washer/dryer, satellite TV in two locations with VCR and DVD players, and a CD player. There are a few games, video tapes, DVDs and CDs for the use of our guests.

A cozy cabin feeling is created by the knotty pine woodwork on most walls and ceilings, which adds to the mountain charm. The beautiful two-story Great Room has a large wood-burning fireplace with a floor to ceiling rock chimney. The dining table seats 8 people. The kitchen appliances include a dishwasher, electric range/oven, microwave, large refrigerator and all equipment needed for food preparation and dining, including complimentary olive oil as well as herbs and spices. A gas grill is provided on the deck for barbecues. The Elk Room (master bedroom) features a two-person heated whirlpool bath and a shower. The Pine Room (queen bedroom) and the Moose Room (twin bedroom are both located upstairs. The upstairs bathroom features a tub/shower with a sliding glass enclosure. There is extra seating in the loft where the second TV is located. ]

WEST YELLOWSTONE CABIN

  • 5 of 5
One of my dream vacations was to visit Yellowstone National Park. In early 2014 I started planning a trip for my wife and I and 6 close friends, The first thing I did was to find a place to stay for one week. I found VRBO and searched for cabins in the Yellowstone area. After several days I found 104 Mule Deer Rd in West Yellowstone. I contacted the owner (Mike O.) and we executed a contract for the period May 31 to June 6, 2014.

My friends and I decided to meet up in Las Vegas and drive to West Yellowstone. We left Vegas on Friday May 30 and spent that night in Salt Lake City. The following day we drove the rest of the way to West Yellowstone, and following the directions given to us by the owner, we found the cabin without any problems.

When we arrived at the cabin, the key was waiting for us in the lock box. Upon entering the cabin, all of us were amazed at how beautiful and spacious it was. The wood work was amazing, the kitchen was fantastic and fully stocked, as were the bathrooms, bedrooms, and laundry room. We all felt right at home, and settled in for one week of fun and excitement.

The drive to the Park only took a few minutes, and restaurants, stores, and other businesses were 5 minutes away. The Grizzly/Wolf Experience and Yellowstone Visitors Center were also located in West Yellowstone.

Each day we would leave the cabin early in the morning to drive to various locations inside the Park. We were giddy when we saw Bison right on the road on our first day. Little did we know that this would prove to be a daily occurence.

Some of the highlights of our visit included seeing all kinds of animals (bison, elk, mule deer, black bears, pronghorn antelope, bald eagles, and mountain goats). The best animal viewing was at Lamar Valley and Hayden Valley. Geysers were all over the place, and the scenes around the various wateralls was stunning.

Each night we would return to the cabin to enjoy home cooked meals or cook outs on the grill. A wood burning fireplace was available, but we didn't use it as we were usually worn out by the end of the day. There was a flat screen TV in the family room and in the loft. There was also board games, a few DVDs, and lots of reading material. Outside was a large garage with lots of firewood.

Communication with the owner was very easy, and he responded to all of my questions in a very timely manner. I would highly recommend this cabin to anyone visiting the Yellowstone area.

FEEL AT HOME...

  • 5 of 5
Clean, comfortable, very well appointed home. Lots of room to stretch out. We spent most of our time while in the cabin at the dining table playing games, eating or chatting. (But we're 4 seniors.) Two large screen TVs with Dish worked just fine with lots of programming. Very well stocked kitchen with everything you'd need to prepare and serve meals. Beds are comfortable with extra blankets and pillows. The downstairs bathroom has a huge Jacuzzi tub, which we didn't try. You must have a car since the cabin is a 10 min drive from WestYS. The pictures and description are accurate.
On our first full day, we took an all day YS lower loop tour with Yellowstone Vacations and Buffalo Bus Touring Company which was excellent. The second day we drove the upper loop by ourselves. Go early into the park and avoid the crowds and very long traffic jams with people stopping to photograph wildlife. We ate at 4 different restaurants and can recommend The Buffalo Bar for great atmosphere and food. Downside -- must be over 21. Also picked up to-go lunches from Ernie's which were excellent. Many fast food options and a small grocery store in WYS.

GREAT PLACE TO STAY NEAR WEST YELLOWSTONE

  • 5 of 5
We stayed here for 4 days from 21st to 25th April 2014. This is a beautiful home. The pictures match exactly what the house has to offer. The kitchen was very well stocked. We cooked almost every meal in the house because there were hardly any restaurants that were open at this time of the year. We were a family of 6. My nieces were delighted to have their own TV in the loft. The owner (Mike) was always reachable and went out of his way to provide us information about his place and the facilities near by such as grocery stores. In all, I would highly recommend this place to anyone who would like to visit Yellowstone even in an off-season like we did.

THANKFUL FOR MY GOOD FORTUNE IN FINDING THIS PLACE

  • 5 of 5
Excellent rental. Spacious, relaxing, well-maintained and stocked with all amenities, this is an excellent Yellowstone area place to relax in comfort. Near Yellowstone National Park (7 miles), but far from the YNP crowds, it's easily accessible for great trout fishing and sight-seeing in Montana, Idaho and Wyoming. Had some interesting weather during our early fall stay (sun, rain, snow and wind), but unit stocked with cut wood to keep the home fires burning. In short, on my next trip back to the Yellowstone area, this is the place I intend to stay. You won't be disappointed with this home during your visit.

GREAT FAMILY VACATION

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in this lovely cabin with our extended family for a week, we had 4 adults and 4 children (ages 5-10). The kitchen was well stocked for us to prepare meals at home, we appreciated the grill and there was even an electric griddle for pancakes. The cabin was very clean and so comfortable for our families. Wonderful home away from home as we enjoyed Yellowstone. Thank you very much!

NICE STAY...BUT EXPECTATIONS A LITTLE BIT FELL SHORT...

  • 4 of 5
Our family of 4 had a nice time at this vacation rental located about 8-10 miles from the West entrance of Yellowstone National Park. The description of the vacation home itself was spot on. However, we were disappointed to see so many other homes around the residence, since the pixes on VRBO lead to believe that we would expect some privacy. That needs to be mentioned.
Another thing was that the Satellite channels were the worst at best in terms of providing Family entertainment. The home only had a bunch of infomercial channels that were overly redundant.
I would suggest that Mike (the owner) does a little more investment in subscribing to the premium line-up channels as well for an overall enjoyment while at the residence--in terms of providing varied entertainment to guests while enjoying the residence.
On the positive side, although we felt that it took overly long, at times, to get a response from Mike, however, after some persistence, the answers would come through, although some did not make their way to us (a couple of non-answers).
we had a local phone issue while we were there and Mike was very responsive and attentive. The resolution took place very promptly.
All in All, we had a great time in West Yellowstone. Residence was clean...
Only the 2 observations above, in terms of falling short of a little more privacy with a few residences all-around and the home entertainment factor...which needs some improvement.

Owner's Response: Yes, JB had some issues with the quality of TV. Something we never considered since no one ever mentioned it before, including my kids! :) But, then again, we are outside or asleep when we're at the cabin. As for the phone, cell works great and long distance is very expensive. Nuf said. I installed a new flat screen and got more channels.

Summer activities:

In the summer there are lots of fun things to do in the area. West Yellowstone's entrance to the Park is the closest to the spectacular Old Faithful geyser, which erupts at regular intervals several times daily. You will also have a golden opportunity to view a great assortment of wildlife in their natural habitat.

In addition to Yellowstone National Park you'll want to visit Teton National Park just south of Yellowstone Park. The Lewis and Clark Caverns with their magnificent limestone caves and the historically preserved old-west towns of Virginia and Nevada City are within easy driving range.

West Yellowstone is located in the heart of fly-fishing country. Several of the most fabled streams and rivers in the world are within a five to fifty mile radius of the town, including the Madison River, Gallatin River, Yellowstone River, and Henry's Fork of the Snake River. High quality lake fishing is also available on Yellowstone Lake, Hebgen Lake and Quake Lake as well Henry's Lake and Island Park Reservoir.

Several outfitters offer horses for hire on an hourly or daily basis on their nearby private lands. Or licensed local outfitters can take your party into the back country of Yellowstone Park, or the surrounding National Forest Service land.

Fall activities:

The fall, with its beautiful foliage, is a great time to visit Yellowstone Park. The energizing cooler temperatures make more strenuous activities such as hiking a lot more fun. There are fewer visitors in the Park making the experience more intimate and peaceful.

The late fall is also hunting season and West Yellowstone offers a great point of access for successful elk and deer hunting.

Winter activities:

Snowmobiling can be enjoyed both inside and outside of the Park. For snowmobiling inside the park a guide is required. West Yellowstone is called the snowmobiling capital of the world, and close-by Island Park offers additional access to nearly 1,000 miles of groomed trails. The snowmobile trail system is less than a half mile away. You can leave the vacation home on your snowmobile and arrive at the trail head within minutes and spend a full day on local trails. If you prefer to sit back and relax, a great way to view Yellowstone Park in winter is to make an excursion in a snow coach. It's a lot warmer but equally scenic!
