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.
