Overview

About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Located on the Yellowstone River and border of Yellowstone National Park in Gardiner, Montana, this single family home holds breathtaking views of the Yellowstone River and surrounding areas. Very few homes have the luxury of being located on the border of the park and river. Perched above the Yellowstone River, this recently renovated home offers the perfect vantage point for spotting buffalo, elk, deer, and antelope within the park’s boundary right across the river. Enjoy morning coffee and fantastic evening sunsets on the deck while the magnificent Yellowstone River rushes below your feet.

The house’s proximity to the North Entrance of the Park makes it the perfect base for day trips into Yellowstone.  Conveniently visit landmarks such as, Mammoth Hot Springs, Old Faithful, the Grand Canyon of Yellowstone, Yellowstone Lake and the famous Beartooth highway. If you want to explore the town of Gardiner, the house is within walking distance of numerous restaurants, coffee shops, art galleries, and authentic local stores. Fishing trips, rafting, kayaking and horseback rides are available in Gardiner, as well.

The fenced property is situated on nearly an acre of land with ample off-street parking.

About Belinda Story

We bought the house in Gardiner to put us in the Gardiner School District so we can send our daughter to school there. We live 30 miles north of Gardiner in the middle of the Paradise Valley on a 10,000 acre cattle ranch that has been in the family since 1866.

Last year we completely renovated the house and started renting it as a vacation rental in the summer.

Belinda Story purchased this house in 2003

Why Belinda Story chose Yellowstone

Some of the favorite things about the property that people enjoy the most, is being able to walk to shops and restaurants in Gardiner. Yet when at the house, it feels 'like you are in the middle of nowhere' with the Yellowstone River rushing by the deck. Also watching animals come out into the meadow across the river in the evening was another favorite.

What makes this house unique

Being so close to Yellowstone Park (literally on the border) it makes the perfect base for your day adventures into the Park.

The house is very clean, neat, comfortable , and very convenient! Belinda is very helpful and nice. After I expressed that we like Chinese food and rice, she brought us a rice cooker and provided us the information on Chinese restaurant and grocery store. We really appreciate!

great location, great house and great host

  • 5 of 5

We spent 4 nights in the wonderful house during our visit to Yellowstone. The location is amazing, it's right next to the river. The house is clean, the beds are comfortable. The host is pretty nice and helpful. We'll come over again in the near future.

Great stay!!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay, and would like to recommend Buffalo Bluff to small groups and families who are looking conveniently located home for visit to Yellowstone. The deck offers great views and wildlife watching at early or late hours. Belinda was a great host!

Rare Five Star Gem In Gardiner

  • 5 of 5

This is the first five star rating I have ever provided to any property or establishment of any kind. Gardiner is a very small town whose claim to fame is its proximity to the northern entrance to Yellowstone. Did not see anything there that would come close to matching the privacy, beauty and full complement of amenities offered at Buffalo Bluff. The fifth star is earned by the attentiveness of the owner, Belinda. She clearly does not want to be intrusive, but does want to be certain that the expectations of her guests are met or exceeded. Terrific!

Beautiful home, great location, terrific host!

  • 5 of 5

We were so happy with our stay in Gardiner. Belinda was a lovely host. She provided useful information, answered all of our questions, and was incredibly welcoming, kind, and thoughtful. The house was beautiful, and very, very spacious. It was neat as a pin and immaculate. We prepared lunches each morning for our full days in Yellowstone and cooked all of our suppers, and the kitchen provided everything we needed. The house was also very bright, which is important to us. It was just a few minutes walk from a local grocery store, and minutes from the North entrance to Yellowstone. It is also very close to the Boiling River and Mammoth Hot Springs. We spent 5 nights in West Yellowstone, and 4 nights in Gardiner, and thoroughly enjoyed out visit to Yellowstone. It is a breathtaking, magical place, and we would definitely return to Belinda's home.

This property was perfect for our family holiday in Yellowstone.

  • 5 of 5

I'm always nervous about booking accommodation as one never really knows beforehand quite what one will find on arrival.... However, any fears were totally unnecessary in the case of Buffalo Bluff.

This house has been perfect for our family..... Four adults and two children -aged 5 and 7 months.

The outside matched the photos we'd seen but the inside was much better than we'd expected and I don't think the photos do it justice.

The location was extremely convenient - not only for access to the park but also for the local supermarket and restaurants. The outside deck, right over the river, was a delight.

We had plenty of space and were impressed with how well equipped the house was. The beds, bed linens, towels etc were high quality as were all the appliances.

The house was also well maintained and spotlessly clean.

All in all, it made us feel really comfortable and 'at home'. We loved it!

The Internet was rather slow and perhaps a few hooks on the backs doors would have been useful .... But I don't want to sound critical in any way, as overall we were thrilled with our accommodation.

I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this property.
