West Yellowstone Cabin Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms With Loft, 2 Baths, Sleeps 10, 2 TV Areas-Quiet, Wooded Area W/ Deck

This homey log cabin is perfect for you; located just 15 minutes from the west entrance to Yellowstone National Park and West Yellowstone, Montana. It is located approximately 3/4 mile off of Highway 20 with a nice wooded area in a quiet, private area. Whether you seek fishing, snowmobiling/atv riding, hunting, boating, skiing and hiking or just enjoying the great outdoors and mountain views on your vacation you have found the ideal cabin location!

This 2 bedroom cabin has a queen bed in each of its two bedrooms. In addition, there are 2 queen beds located in the loft along with two twin bunk beds. All bedding is provided with extra pillows and blankets. The cabin will sleep 10 guests comfortably. There are two full bathrooms with linens provided.

Enjoy the open floor plan with a large main living area which includes the kitchen, dining room and living room. The kitchen is fully stocked with all the amenities to prepare a marvelous home cooked meal. There is ample dishware and silverware, along with any cookware that you might need. Electrical appliances are provided including, but not limited to, an electric skillet, blender, crock pot, 12 cup coffee pot and a coffee grinder for the gourmet coffee types! We also try to provide a variety of seasonings. The dining room table has seating for 6 and bar seats 2 with bar stools. If it is dining out that you desire, the cabin is within minutes of multiple fast food or fine dining restaurants. The living room is wonderfully cozy with a couch and loveseat that recline and a large Grandma's chair. You can curl up with a good book in front of the propane stove or watch a movie on the flat screen television with Dish Network or the DVD player.

The loft also has a television viewing area with a flat screen television with Dish Network and a VCR/DVD player. The couch and loveseat provide ample room for the kids to watch a movie of their own. We have provided a few small toys, lots of board games for the family and you can choose from a wide variety of books.

Laundry area has a smaller washer and dryer with all of your laundry soap, bleach and fabric softeners provided.

Pets are welcome - there is an area provided in the corner of the dining area to contain your pet if needed. We ask that no pets be left unattended in the cabin.

The wrap around deck provides room for sitting and enjoying the mountain air and wildlife with a barbeque grill and fire pit. While the adults relax there is a swing set for the kids to entertain themselves (summer only).

Cell phones work very well at the cabin. Internet access and WIFI is available at all times.

Arrive at any time, for your convenience, we have Remote Lock for our guests - you will get your own personal code to access the cabin without a tedious check-in!

Moose Crossing is open year around and is conveniently located in a central location. Your vacation home base is within minutes of some of the area's best activities. Just down the road is a public boat launch for Henry's Lake, the ice fishing on Henry's Lake is amazing with some record fish being pulled from its depths. Head south on Highway 20 to visit Mesa Falls, Johnny Sack Cabin at Big Springs or Sawtelle Peak. Enjoy amazing fly fishing on Henry's Fork of the Snake River or Madison River. There is a live dinner theater at Mack’s Inn Playhouse. Enjoy float trips down the river, hiking trails, horseback riding and even a round of golf at Island Park Village Resort. Take the time to hike Harriman State Park and enjoy nature’s wonders. This is a snowmobiler’s paradise with some of the area’s best snowmobiling accessible right from the cabin's front door; there is something for every level of snowmobiler. Enjoy over 500 miles of trail riding or within minutes you can boon-docking in some of the best over the hood powder back country riding or steep climbing that you can imagine.

During the winter, we keep the driveway plowed and attempt to keep the walkways cleared, especially on the day of your arrival. The driveway has ample room for one large trailer and 2 - 3 trucks OR 2 smaller snowmobile trailers and pickups. If your party has more than that there is a large parking area less than 3/4 of a mile down the road from the cabin.

When the snow is gone and spring and summer arrives, the area is noted for its wildlife with a moose actually being caught on photos right in the backyard. You might see fox, elk or deer and there is always a beautiful bird to be seen on a walk in the wooded area right across from the cabin.

This is a NON-SMOKING cabin. We are also under a county ordinance for short term rentals and ask that our guests please stay in compliance for their safety and health; we ask that you stay within capacity limits, read the burn ordinance and please be neighborly.

About Shawna

As you can see from the photo that our family is avid snowmobile fans. I grew up in Montana and my husband grew up in Twin Falls, Idaho, where our son was born. We live in Twin Falls, Idaho where we farm and have a custom baling business. Our summers are very full, so we take the time to enjoy every snowflake that falls from the sky!

Shawna purchased this cabin in 2012

Why Shawna chose West Yellowstone

We had a dream! We have wanted a cabin in this area for years as we have been coming here every winter for 13 years to enjoy the snow. We started coming here when we could still ride our mountain sleds into Yellowstone National Park. It seems that whenever we had a spare few days (even in the summer) we would load in the car and run up here to enjoy Yellowstone National Park, Virginia City or just to relax with friends. Some of our fondest memories as a family are on snowmobiles in these mountains. My dad even looked at purchasing property in Island Park back when I was 8 years old. We are truly blessed to live 4 hours from Island Park and we consider this beautiful cabin our retirement home! We can't hardly wait to retire!

What makes this cabin unique

We fell in love with this cabin and purchased it for the great loft - the big open feeling just made us feel so at home that we had to have it! It is cozy with the log walls and propane stove. The property sits on 3 lots so there is a lot of room to play outside! All of the pine trees and aspens on the property make this cabin very secluded. It was also a great bonus that it sits directly on the trails leading to some of the greatest mountain snowmobiling in the area. Our friends and family that don't snowmobile can't wait for summer so that they might enjoy the benefits of Henrys Lake, Madison River and Yellowstone National Park! I personally love Big Springs where you can feed the fish and sometimes see a moose just standing in the river. We are avid outdoors people and with all of the big windows, even when you are in the cabin you can bring the outdoors right inside with you. I love to sit early in the morning in front of the fire, sipping coffee and looking out at the beautiful snow drifts, it just makes my day!

Best Family Vacay

  • 5 of 5
We had such a great time staying at your cabin! For years Yellowstone has been a bucket list item. I'm so glad I wa able to share the experience with my family.
As my siblings and I have gotten older, we have had less opportunity for vacations as a larger family. This cabin was PERFECT for us.
The pictures do NOT do it justice. It is a lot bigger than it seems. It's super cozy and has EVERYTHING you need to be relaxed and enjoy your time.
I have zero complaints. We were having a problem connecting to internet, but a quick phone call to the owner helped is out with our problem.
We still talk about our time, and we hope we are able to make another trip after the thaw!

Thank you again for a most splendid vacation!

Very nice cabin!

  • 5 of 5
I would definitely recommend this cabin. It was clean and well-maintained. The kitchen was well equiped. We were two families, including 4 kids from 2 to 7 years old. The children had fun inside and outside the cabin. The owner, Shawna, was very nice and helpful.

Moose Crossing in Fall

  • 5 of 5
We thoroughly enjoyed our week at Moose Crossing. The location was good for us and the cabin was very nice and well equipped. The only issue we had was with the internet speed. I discussed this with Shawna and she said it is in the process of being upgraded. We would definitely go back. The location was great for access to the Henry's Fork of the Snake River, The Madison River and Yellowstone.

Moose Crossing - the place to stay!

  • 5 of 5
Our family truly needed this beautiful getaway. The house was so well stocked with extras, and very comfortable. We found out during our stay that we would be moving across the country, so this was the perfect culmination of life in Idaho and some true, relaxing family time. Our kids (6, 2.5) loved the loft, the outdoor play area and sitting on the porch. The moose visited us while we were there!

A great base camp for our days at Yellowstone!

  • 4 of 5
We were two, 55+ couples visiting Yellowstone National park for the first time and this cabin turned out to be ideal for our 3-night stay in the area. Shawna, the owner, was so responsive and pleasant to deal with, provided helpful suggestions of things to do and see and provided useful directions, maps and brochures for Yellowstone and other area attractions.

The cabin was easy to find, was very clean and looked just like the pictures on the listing (although we never saw the fox)! The cabin has the convenience of keyless entry which meant we did not have to go by a second location to pick up a key. It was close enough (less than 30 minutes) to the West Yellowstone entrance to be convenient to the park and to restaurants yet well away from the lights and noises that come from a primarily-tourist area to provide a quiet location for a restful night. The kitchen was especially well equipped - providing the usual pots, pans, dishes and regular small appliances you might expect to find plus extras like spices, a crock pot, a griddle, etc. that made it easy to "eat in." There is also a grill on the deck if you want that option. There is no dishwasher, however, so you need to allow for dish-washing time before checkout since you are expected to leave clean dishes.

There is a big loft area that has two additional queen beds, a set of bunk beds and an area with chairs, an additional flat-screened TV, games, etc. There is also play equipment for younger children outside (see pictures). It would be a great place for kids but be aware that they would have to share the two bathrooms with the bedrooms on the main floor.

If we were to return to the area, we'd like to stay here again and we'll certainly recommend it to our family and friends!

Great location for Yellowstone

  • 5 of 5
We had a group of 6 stay at this cabin and there was plenty of room for all of us. The cabin is decorated in moose and the owner is great to work with. We were able to see the resident moose our first morning there right outside the bedroom window. It was a great location to visit
Yellowstone and the drive in to the park is beautiful as we'll. We also went to Big Sky Montana and went whitewater rafting which I highly recommend. That was a beautiful drive as we'll and took about an hour and half. We only had 5 nights at the cabin and could have stayed longer since there is so much to see in the area. Shawna is very helpful in providing information on the sights to see and things to so. She even baked a cake for my husbands birthday be cause we would be arriving to late and there are no bakeries around this little town. I'm sure she chuckled inside when I asked if there was a bakery close by. The grocery store only has 4 aisles. This was definitely the place to relax and get away and the cabin allowed us to do this and Shawna made our vacation special with memories to last for a lifetime. Look no further this is the place you want to rent.
