The Grizzly Den is an amazing place to call home during your visit to Yellowstone Park. This is 3 bedroom home, with an open loft area(with pull out sofa), and another loft area with a futon. Located above the banks of the Yellowstone River less than a mile from the north entrance to the park in the heart of Gardiner, MT, it has 18 windows facing south into the park highlighting stunning views of 11,000 ft Electric Peak. You can literally look out the windows, or off the deck and see: elk, antelope, deer, and occasionally bears and wolves roaming the hillsides of Yellowstone.

Amazing deck, easy access to Yellowstone NP

  • 4 of 5

We spent the weekend here - three adults and a 10 year old - the property was more than suitable for our group. The Grizzly Den has an amazing deck overlooking the Yellowstone River, and is minutes away from the North Gate into YNP. Don't use your GPS to find this place, it leads you to take a wrong turn; the written directions that are emailed to you are the ones to follow. There were multiple cars parked in the narrow alleyway by the house - so there wasn't really good parking for our 4 x 4 truck - we parked on the main street near the house - this was not a big deal. The house was clean and well-equipped; the kitchen could use a larger sauté pan (don't plan on scrambled eggs for breakfast) and maybe some ice trays in the freezer, but everything else we needed was there to allow us to cook dinner. (Bring ice if you want drinks - the store is only a couple minutes away). Furniture was nice, sofas and beds were comfortable, and showers, etc. functioned well. Nice linens and quilts on the bed. The bed frames for the queen beds are very high, which may make it difficult for seniors or anyone with any physical limitations (I'm 5 foot 9 inches tall and it was still quite a hike up into the bed). The mattress on the floor in the "nook" upstairs is very hard - I would suggest larger families who intend to use this space bring an air mattress. There is a gate at the top of the stairs for small children. The circular stair case is tiny - and the stairs are narrow - don't go down in the dark - again, it may not be best for seniors or people with physical limitations. We really enjoyed our stay here and were very comfortable and the views were amazing off the deck - I just wanted people to be aware of some of the possible limitations for some guests. We would recommend this property to others and would definitely rent the property again.

A great choice!

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at the Grizzly Den- great deck, fantastic windows, very comfortable house. We had a question about the heat and the owner called right back with the friendly answer. We know the area so are familiar with Gardiner and the easy access to Yellowstone- definitely recommend for others with kids or a group of friends.

Fabulous views of Yellowstone River, wildlife and Electric Peak

  • 5 of 5

Grizzly Den was the perfect place for our two families, with teenage boys, to call home over a three day weekend in this winter. Everyone had their own area to stretch out and relax when not cross country skiing, soaking in the Gardner River where the Boiling River runs in, or playing games. The southwest side of the house is filled with many windows. Pack your binoculars because elk, bison, deer and antelope are grazing on the foothills across the Yellowstone River (at least during our visit).

The location is only a few miles from the north entrance to Yellowstone National Park. This allowed more time skiing and soaking, and less time driving.

The kitchen was pretty well stocked with pots, pans, etc. and had a dishwasher which is always appreciated.

The upstairs would be extra fun for younger children as there are a couple lofts and smaller areas built in for playing and exploring.

The Owner was very responsive to questions. We will definitely consider renting this property the next time we plan a trip to the north part of Yellowstone Park!

Great location, great property

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Grizzly Den. This property has several things going for it, It is roomy and well equipped, its views are unsurpassed and its location is convenient. We came home from a chilly morning wildlife viewing to enjoy the sight of a bald eagle hunting on the Yellowstone River right outside our window. Our one small problem was handled quickly by the owner. If we come back to Gardiner, (and I hope we do) we will definitely want to stay here again.

A very cosy house in a charming little town

  • 3 of 5

The Grizzly den is a very comfortable and surprising house. You will find hidden rooms and it will be a real pleasure for the kids to find out where they want to sleep. The house has everything you need including a wonderful terrace overlooking the Gardiner river. The entire house is cosy and charming and you will feel home very quickly

There are restaurants, entertainment, coffee shops, rafting all within a mile of our cabin. This cabin has lots of great private spaces and a really creative layout. Large groups can all find a place to call their own in this cabin.
