BEST VIEW IN GARDINER - GREAT YELLOWSTONE VIEWS AND ON THE RIVER!

Gardiner House Rental Photos and Description

House, 5 bedrooms, 3 full bathrooms, sleeps 12-14

We have an absolutely ideal location... amazing views and convenience too.

Start your days watching the gorgeous sunrise on Electric Peak (one of the highest mountains in Yellowstone National Park) right from the breakfast table with the gentle sounds of the Yellowstone River flowing by the property. Our vacation rental home is perched above the Yellowstone River with an expansive view overlooking Yellowstone National Park. Wildlife abounds! Watch eagles, osprey and ravens soar BELOW YOU over the River. From the dining room or deck off the back, we've watched a wolf pack pursue and take down a pronghorn, eagles catching fish in the river, bison herds grazing, elk swimming across the river and a pronghorn give birth to twins! You never know what you may see - it can be utterly amazing wildlife encounters or simply the awe inspiring beauty of the mountains and river.

Our view is south facing, so there's lots of sunlight to soak in all day long. At the end of the day, grill in the yard while you watch the sunset reflections on the river and enjoy the 'big sky' views of Montana and Yellowstone.

The convenience of our property will make your vacation feel simplified and relaxed. You can walk to the grocery store, restaurants, ice cream and pizza too...check out the bookstore, gift shops or even white water rafting outfitters where they'll 'suit you up' and take you rafting down the river, right by your vacation home! Elk River Art Studio is right next door (that's us!), where we create art inspired by the landscape and animals you'll experience during your visit to Yellowstone. A little further, the Roosevelt Arch at the northern entrance to Yellowstone National Park is just a mile away. And just a couple miles from there, you can soak in the Boiling River - the hot springs in Yellowstone Park. There's A LOT to experience in Yellowstone (we certainly love it!) and we'd be happy to point you in the right direction and help make it a vacation of a lifetime for you.

My husband and I are both artists, living, working and raising 2 children, at the edge of Yellowstone. We enjoy living in the midst of wildlife, surrounded by the beauty of the natural world - and take advantage of our Yellowstone 'back yard' (literally!) every chance we get. I paint outside in Yellowstone often and in our 'spare time', we hike, cross country ski, canoe and kayak.

Shirl Ireland purchased this house in 2006

We literally searched for years looking for 'the spot'. We are artists fortunate enough to live where ever we'd like. Our property is on the Yellowstone River overlooking Yellowstone National Park. We lived in this home while we built our new studio and gallery on the property. The mountain and river views are gorgeous and we're at the edge of a wonderful, friendly small town. We can walk to the grocery store and Yellowstone National Park too! Hiking, skiing and soaking in the Hot Springs are just minutes away. Plus, we're close enough to take advantage of Livingston and Bozeman, MT - a couple great towns with good vibes and bigger amenities. You can get to lots of art, outdoor activities and shopping after a beautiful drive up Paradise Valley (aptly named). That's why we call our spot 'the center of the universe.'

Not too many places on this Earth have what we have. How many people can watch a wolf pack hunt, eagles and osprey catch fish, bison herds graze, elk swim and twin pronghorns born - right from their dining room window? We watch Electric Peak (one of the highest mountains in Yellowstone Park) as the sun rises it turns a beautiful 'morning pink' with the soft sounds of the river in the background. We can watch the sun set and turn the river to a ribbon of orange, then at night, with the moon above, the river again comes alive and sparkles with the moons reflection. How could we want anymore?

Amazing

  • 5 of 5
Brought my family to Yellowstone as my Christmas gift to my grandchildren and their parents. This house had everything you could possibly want or need and the furnishings were great. Haven't slept that good in years. The owners were very accommodating and helpful. The amazing mountain views and the Yellowstone River sitting on the deck couldn't have made our trip more perfect. And only a mile from the Park entrance. I'll be back soon!

Awesome trip to Yellowstone!

  • 4 of 5
Our entire family thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Yellowstone. It was nice to come home to the comfort of a house instead of a hotel. The layout of the house was perfect for us. There were nine of us and we did not feel like we were on top of each other. We were up early and in late from our park visits so did not really get to enjoy all that the house had to offer but would highly recommend it to others. The location to the park was perfect! Thank you John for your suggestions in the park as to where to go and what to see, it was really helpful.

Great Time!

  • 5 of 5
Excellent stay - great first time for visiting Yellowstone! House was nice - beautiful kitchen, and an awesome deck overlooking the Yellowstone River and the Gallatin National Forest. Our hosts were very gracious and helpful. If you have a large family and want to visit Yellowstone this property is perfect - plenty of sleeping spaces and a very good sized home to accommodate everyone.

Family Reunion Vacation

  • 5 of 5
We had 12 people,6 adults and 6 children. The house was large enough to accomdate us with plenty of elbow room and not be in everyones face. A large table that fit all of us at meal times. We felt right at home, The kids could play downstairs without disturbing others upstairs. The view from the deck and yard was just awesome. So refreshing to sleep with the windows open and hear the river going by. Beds very comfortable. The owners were most helpful and informative. We would go out all day exploring Yellowstone and in the evening coming back the kids would start talking about going back to our Yellowstone House, everyone felt right at home. It was a great vacation and the house played a big part in it!

Owner's Response: We really appreciate your review - thank you. Glad to hear the house felt spacious for your group and that you all liked the large dining table, the awesome views and our deck, too. It's certainly important to us that you feel at home and sleep well... So hearing the beds were comfortable and you enjoyed the river sounds at your "Yellowstone House" is wonderful! Hope you can make it back again some time.

Great Spot

  • 5 of 5
Great spot for our big group of skiers. I liked the large kitchen, since everyone want to gather there no matter how comfortable the rest of the house is. And the open floor plan let conversations flow both to the dining room and the living room. The owners (who lived next door) were nice, very helpful.We came, we feasted, we skied the park, we feasted some more, we played games, we did yoga, we read, we slept. Pretty idyllic. Thanks for all.
