Wolves, bear, moose and elk abound in our area of Yellowstone and the Beartooth Mountains. There are beautiful mountain views from the back deck, and front windows. Some of the best wild trout fishing in the world is minutes from the house. These include the Yellowstone River, Lamar River, Slough Creek, Soda Butte Creek, and the Clarks Fork of the Yellowstone.
A great family day can be spent touring the famous features of Yellowstone or taking a day trip to Cody, WY to see the Wild Bill Cody Museum, a grnuine rodeo nightly, a gun fight at the original Irma Hotel, good food, and many shops including the Sierra Outlet. Best time for animal watching is June and early July, while the best time for fishing is mid July through September. Hiking is fabulous anytime.
The house is clean, spacious and comfortable, with a Great Room and fireplace, modern kitchen and laundry with half bath on first floor. Second floor has two very large bedrooms: One has three single beds and the other a queen bed and a single. This arrangement will sleep a family of six or 5 singles. Also a newly remodeled full bathroom upstairs.
Outside thre is a rear deck with gorgeous mountain vies so close you feel like you can reach out and touch them. There is a grill and patio furniture for outdoor dining. There is also a very small stream in the yard which holds a few native Yellowstone Cutthroat Trout. Very private yard.

My husband Hank and I have over the years, run a fly fishing school, guided for 10 years in YNP, Hank builds bamboo fly rods. In our non-summer home in VA we fox hunt on horseback and are active conservationists. We are life members of Trout Unlimited, and we both have received numerous awards from that organization.
Presently, I am a retired teacher who writes Outdoor columns for a magazine and a local newspaper, and I have had an article on Yellowstone Cutthroat trout printed in Fly Fisherman Magazine.
Marcia purchased this house in 1992
Our location has the best fishing in Yellowstone for native Yellowstone Cutthroat trout. Lamar River, Slough Creek, Soda Butte and Yellowstone River are all less than 30 minutes from our home.
We are one of the closest residences to YNP in any of the gateway communities. In two minutes you can be at the NE gate.
Thank you so much for everything. You guys wre so helpful! You were just great. The house was very pretty and the backyard with the little stream was awesome for us kids.
On behalf of our group, I want to express my sincere thanks for helping us have a fantastic time in one of the most beautiful places on earth. Your recommendations were most helpful, without which we would have wasted a lot of time trying to figure things out for ourselves.
The group thoroughly enjoyed the experience and all agreed they had a wonderful time. They liked the cabin and it worked out just fine for all of us. It was clean, espeially the bathrooms. Internet worked when needed for an urgent business matter back home. Three of us guys bunked in one of the upstairs bedrooms and our married couple had the MBR. One other guy slept in the guest log cabin in the back yard. We all slept well.
We liked the Clark’s Fork best of all even though other rivers or streams were scenic and fun to fish. We primarily fished the Clark’s Fork just inside the Wyoming line that has beautiful gorges with rapids and pools.
The Yellowstone is also an impressive river in other ways. After fishing there and then hiking back to the Gardner River parking lot, we enjoyed a dip in the “Hot Tub” in the Gardner River. What a pleasant way to end the day! We also fished Soda Butte, Slough Creek, Lamar and Firehole.
We caught plenty of fish including one or two guys getting a four trout (Cutthroat, Rainbow, Brook and Brown) grand slam. This is a trip we all would like to do again some time.
Thanks again for your help.
Thank you, Marcia, for a truly great stay. Wonderful accommodations in a quiet part of the park with the best wildlife viewing and gorgeous scenery. Pleasant company, good places to eat nearby, and absolutely the best recommendations from our hosts for horsepacking trips and expert guiding for the best cutthroat trout fishing. We'll definitely be back!
Our family enjoyed our stay in Cooke City. The house was great: prefect location, lovely view of the mountains and clean. Marcia was very helpful with local recommendations for rafting, horseback riding, and fishing locations. If your family is interested in the low key side of the park, this house is a great place.
Again we were blessed to stay at this wonderful home in Silvergate, Montana. Best weather, best fishing, best wildlife viewing and best accommodations. Five star all the way! Thanks, Marcia and Hank for sharing your home with us. Love, The Rubley's from Colorado.
We had the best time staying in this fabulous rental house, and yes it felt just like home. They anticipated all of our needs and everything we could have wanted was available to us. The wildlife was abundant, the weather fantastic and the fishing superior. We were so close to the park and so much more, everyday you can choose to head off in a new direction or to a new adventure, you choices were limitless. It was had to choose, but we managed, and when we returned each evening this cozy home awaited us. We are headed back for a second week soon, can not wait.
My wife Nancy had a wonderful stay. The house is clean, spacious, and has everything we needed. Its also very well located just outside the NE park entrance and at a very affordable rate. Dinner and supplies are in walking distance or you can take a very short drive to Cooke City just down the road for more choices. Marcia and Hank were wonderful and friendly hosts. Marcia provided all the local info we needed and some excellent fishing tips. We both caught 20+ inch cut throat trouts in the Lamar and felt like pros. We spent most of our time hiking and fishing in the park with a few select visits to the local park attractions. It was an absolutely beautiful area that has plentiful wildlife with options for everyone's interest and capabilities. Of the many places we have traveled in the US this was the best vacation yet. We wish we had brought more people! Highly recommended.

We are a summer only rental, and many weeks are rented a year ahead of time, and filling a week close to the time of rental is usually impossible. That is why we have the non refundable policy.
