Property type cabin
Minimum Stay 3 nights


About the property

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths

Yellowstone Park Riverfront Cabin 1. Year-round rental available for premium recreational activities. Just a few steps from world-class blue-ribbon trout fishing and hiking in the National Forest. Walk, hike, or ride horseback through the National Forest entry. Only a casual walk of 1100+/- feet to boundary of Yellowstone Park. Approximately a four-and-a-half mile drive through the Park to the Roosevelt Arch entry at Gardiner (the North Gate). NOTE PLEASE: The 2017 Calendar for this cabin #69590 has few openings available, however, if the open dates do not meet your preferred dates, I listed another near identical cabin on #935195

Note: As I have reservations for 9 months to a year in advance and many return guests who reserve early, be sure to call (406) 570-4500 at your earliest convenience to secure your preferred dates.

ALSO CHECK OUT #935195 (similar cabin by same owner) for available dates.

Here is your unique opportunity to enjoy Mammoth's geological wonders and the vast variety of wildlife and activities of Yellowstone National Park as well as numerous educational possibilities.

The cabin is modern, comfortable, convenient, and in a very private setting (not on the highway) with spectacular scenic views of the Park, wildlife, and Electric Peak. It is just like being in the Park without being in the crowds. Its location is near the campfire area on the banks of the Yellowstone River.

Cabin 1 has two master suites (each with luxury queen beds and bath), flat-screen TV's, fully equipped kitchen, covered private patio, WiFi, washer/dryer.

The cabin is located 47+/- miles to Livingston, 70+/-miles to Bozeman. There is a county airport in Gardiner and Bozeman’s Yellowstone International Airport is 75+/- miles.

Note: Your early reservation, prior to January 1, will ensure the lowest peak-season rate.

Depending upon desired dates, it can be possible to reserve independently owned cabins for additional guests if you are planning a larger get-together. Without exception, I have been told my cabin is superior to my guests expectations.

Don't forget that the Gardiner/North Gate entrance to Yellowstone Park, Mammoth, the Lamar Valley, and Cooke City, is open year-around. Winter in Yellowstone is awesome!

PLEASE CALL 406-570-4500 to inquire about dates and availability.

Note: Video link shows interior of Cabin 1. Cabin 8 location on the banks of the Yellowstone is the same and the amenities are nearly identical.

About Bonnie Lynn

I love sharing my passion for the beauty and wonders of Yellowstone Park. I attend many of the classes offered in Yellowstone and know it would take many lifetimes to embrace the full impact of this incredible National Park preservation. As one guest said the other day: 'I have traveled the whole world and Yellowstone is my favorite!'

Why Bonnie Lynn chose Yellowstone

The Yellowstone Park Riverfront Cabins are set in a prime location at Gardiner. It's just like being in the Park without being in the crowds. There's not only the fact that the cabins are on the banks of world-class blue-ribbon trout fishing and across the road from the National Forest, but guests can walk into Yellowstone Park, approximately 1100 feet south from the driveway entrance.

What makes this cabin unique

The unique benefits of Cabin 1's amenities are the primary reasons why many guests return for visits. It's just a short drive (fewer than 5 miles) from the cabin to the Park through the Roosevelt Arch entry in Gardiner and fewer than 20 minutes to Mammoth. Guests enjoy a modern, clean, convenient, well-equipped cabin home and do not need to move from one place to another to enjoy the entire Park because the cabin is within easy access of all the wonders of Yellowstone.

Yellowstone Park Riverfront Cabin

Hendersonville, Tn

A perfect stay!

  • 5 of 5

Our group of four adults stayed for 5 nights in this lovely secluded cabin. The setting is peaceful and absolutely beautiful and only minutes from Yellowstone Park. The cabin itself was very comfortable and provided everything we needed for a relaxing evening after a hectic day exploring the park. The beds were very comfortable with soft sheets and very nice pillows and comforters. The addition of several coat racks and hooks to hand outerwear was most welcome. The cabin was spotlessly clean. The kitchen had all the amenities to cook any meal. We really enjoyed having the electric grill. Bonnie was most helpful and informative. I would not hesitate to return to this lovely cabin and actually hope to bring my grandchildren here someday. I don't think you can go wrong with this cabin.

Relaxing and beautiful setting

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for 3 nights in June with another couple. It was wonderful to sit on the patio and relax after a busy day in Yellowstone National Park. We saw river rafters float by and the view in all directions is beautiful. The washer and dryer were such a plus and the kitchen is fully equipped so we were able to cook in after a hectic day in the park. Bonnie is very helpful and we enjoyed getting to know her through emails. It is furnished wonderfully and I wanted to take the couch and chair home with me. The beds are comfortable and having a bathroom for each couple is great. I highly recommended Bonnie's cabin on the river for couples or families. You will be glad you stayed in this peaceful retreat from very busy Yellowstone.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your 5 star review. Your confirmation to others stating “you will be glad you stayed in this peaceful retreat from very busy Yellowstone” is music to my ears, as I tell people we are like being in the Park without being in the crowds. Creating a “home away from home” is my goal for my guests. It is important for me that my guests have a “relaxing and beautiful setting” while experiencing the wonders of Yellowstone. As mentioned in my cabin journal, your testimonies are my treasurers. I would be honored with your return visit!

Perfect Yellowstone Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Perfect place to stay and explore Yellowstone. We loved the privacy of the cabin, quiet and away from the hustle and bustle of Yellowstone and Gardiner, yet close enough to be able to shop for food and get to the park easily.

We loved all the amenities, special coffeemaker, washer and dryer, comfy beds, two bathrooms! Enjoyed the deck and just relaxing. Be sure to stay up and look at the stars at night. They are fantastic. We will definitely be back!

All who know me knows that I always state: "Love is a gift of time" ... and to have time that creates precious memories is a gift! So happy you enjoyed your time together ... and your time at the cabin & Yellowstone! Warmest Regards, Bonnie

This was the most wonderful, secluded retreat we have ever found close to Yellowstone. My family loved this place so much that a few in our party, just opted to stay there instead of traveling into the Park. We found the gravel road just added to the privacy and peaceful surroundings. The cabin was incredibly comfortable with huge beds and leather furniture, and we felt we wanted to stay there forever. Having a washer and dryer on hand was very convenient, which allowed us more time to enjoy the beautiful scenery. Many thanks to Bonnie and her wonderful staff, who were so thoughtful, and went out of their way to insure our stay was comfortable and complete. This place is so amazing and we simply can't wait to return.

Owner's Response: Sue, Thank you ... your 5 star review brought tears to my eyes as providing a best place to experience Yellowstone is worth all my efforts. Many guests leave a journal entry but don't take the time to go back to write a comment online. Again, thank you Sue! I would be honored for your future visit(s). Warmest Regards, Bonnie

Beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

This listing is ideal for 3 adults. Everything is clean and perfectly appointed. We enjoyed the comfortable furniture throughout the house.

The view is wonderful in all directions and we found the location very quiet and peaceful. This was great for us, as we were weary of the crowds and traffic in the park. Bonnie, is very helpful and generous.

Great cabin and great location

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is exactly as pictured and presented by owner. It was very homey and comfortable. It is very nicely furnished and the kitchen is stocked very well with cooking utensils, pots and pans, nice appliances, etc. We even cooked a few times. We rented Cabin #1 which had 2 views of the river vs. only one. It really was a beautiful view. The beds were comfortable and the cabin was very clean. The location is great as it is just minutes from downtown Gardiner (small western town) and the north entrance of the Yellowstone national park (which we think is the most spectacular). As we were coming from the Grand Tetons first, we hit the southern part of Yellowstone first and then could easily reach the other areas from the river cabin. The best restaurant in town, Lighthouse is just 10 minutes from the cabin. Our only issue (minor one) is that we weren't crazy about the unpaved room to the cabin (4.5 miles from downtown Gardiner or 2.5 miles form the bridge crossing). We did not have 4 wheel drive and the road was quite bumpy. However, we did get used it and realized that going too slow made it worse! The owner was easy to work with and reachable if we had questions. We would definitely recommend this cabin for couples or families. You will not be disappointed!!!
