Space 1,000 sq. ft.
Property type cabin
Minimum Stay 3 nights


About the property

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Our cabin is located on the Yellowstone River at the southern end of Paradise Valley, just 4 miles north of Gardiner and the original entrance to Yellowstone National Park. Whether you are coming to visit the park, sample the blue ribbon trout fishing or to enjoy the numerous year round outdoor activities the area has to offer; this location is ideal for you.

Our cabin is an end unit with adjacent off street parking. The cabin comes with all of the amenities you would expect to make your stay comfortable. The covered outdoor porch overlooks the Yellowstone River with spectacular views of the park and Electric Peak. Each bedroom can accommodate up to 4 people, has it's own full bathroom and satellite flat screen TV. When you want to kick back in the evening, enjoy the living room's reclining furniture, satellite TV and Franklin stove. The kitchen is equipped with a water filtering and ice making refrigerator, quality appliances and cookware and even a variety of spices. A washer and dryer along with all linens and towels for bedrooms, bathrooms and kitchen are also provided. In response to previous reviews, we now have free Wi-Fi available for our guests.

The area abounds with year round outdoor activities. Winter offers the solitude of snowshoeing, back country and cross country skiing both in the park and in the surrounding National Forest. Spring brings a special treat for bicyclists. While the northern road from Gardiner to Cooke City remains open year round, the remainder of the park is limited to bicycle traffic only for a period in the month of April. As winter run off swells the the Yellowstone River, rafting and kayaking take center stage. Summer offers park visits, fishing and all of the other outdoor activities too numerous to list. Fall wraps up the year with smaller crowds in the park, crisp fresh air, hunting and great fishing.

The Yellowstone Association Institue offers year round classes and information is available on their web site.

We live in Bozeman, and both Kierin and Ron are very familiar with the area and activities available. Please feel free to call or e-mail with any questions or concerns that you may have.

About Ron and Kierin DeArmond

Ron and Kierin raised their family of five in Wausau, Wisconsin, and retired to Bozeman, MT, in 2001.

Ron and Kierin DeArmond purchased this cabin in 2006

Why Ron and Kierin DeArmond chose Yellowstone

We have spent many years bringing family out to this area to enjoy the outdoor recreation. We both downhill ski, and Kierin is an avid cross country skier and hiker when the ground is not covered with snow. Ron's passion is fly fishing, and he used to visit the Gardiner area dating back to the 1980's. It is a great "home base" to fish the Park and the surrounding Yellowstone waters.

What makes this cabin unique

The location of the cabin just 4 miles north of the park entrance, and being on the "other side" of the river from the busy highway, makes this a very tranquil and peaceful setting. Recreational activities abound all year long, and animal viewing is abundant right outside your front door. You can fish right in front of the cabin or in the Park, raft in the river, hike all the surrounding trails both inside and outside of the Park, and the winter activities provide beauty and more seclusion as most of the area visitors head back home. Cross country skiing in the Park is very accessible and spectacular. Animal viewing and photography are outstanding.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a wonderful trip. The weather was great. We got to see everything we wanted to in Yellowstone. It was so nice having a beautiful place to come back to each night and relax. Thank you for sharing!

Cabin #10

  • 5 of 5

Home away from home!! This cabin is simply wonderful with a gorgeous view and wildlife right outside the door! We stayed for 5 nights and wished we could have moved in! The location was a short 5-10 minute drive to town. Perfect stay for touring Yellowstone! It was so nice to come back to a cozy cabin after exploring in the park all day. It met all our needs, was tastefully decorated, very clean and was well equipped to accommodate 4 adults and 2 children. We didn't need to bring anything from home as it was fully furnished including kitchen appliances (which we used the crock pot two times). Also it had a washer and dryer which allowed us to do our laundry so we didn't have to worry about it when we got home. The owners, Ron and Kierin, were so pleasant and friendly to work with and made our stay wonderful! I highly recommend this cabin to anyone traveling with children or as adults. It's our new favorite spot and we can't wait to return!

Newer property with stunning views overlooking the Yellowstone River.

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is literally a stone's throw away from the River. A small herd of elk visited almost daily 400 yards away. We also saw big horn sheep a mile down the road. Enough beds and baths for everyone. Kitchen is very well appointed! Very comfortable!

So glad I found this cabin!

  • 5 of 5

My family of 5 stayed in this cabin for 3 nights in early June. We wished we had stayed longer! The cabin was great! It was very clean and comfortable, and it had everything that we needed during our stay. My boys especially enjoyed having wifi and being able to watch some tv while we were there (after having no wifi and tv in our Yellowstone lodging!). The location of the cabin is absolutely beautiful. We went white water rafting on the Yellowstone River while we were in Gardiner and rafted right by "our" cabin! The owners, Kierin and Ron DeArmond, were very nice and helpful on the phone and through emails. We definitely would stay here again (only longer) for our next trip out to YNP. Thank you Kierin and Ron!
