Yellowstone Cabin Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedroom, 2.5 Bath Cabin + Studio apt., (Sleeps 8)

'Check out our Video in the top left corner of the main picture.'

Our custom built, 1600 sf cabin, which we affectionately refer to as 'The Fishing Shack', was completed in the fall of 2008. An additional 350 sf studio apartment was completed and will be ready to rent for the 2013 season. The property is located on the Madison River, known for its majestic beauty and world class fly fishing. The cabin is a gorgeous, 30 minute drive to the entrance of Yellowstone National Park and about an hour to the winter hot spot, Big Sky Ski Resort. With its fabulous location, reclaimed barnwood floors, custom kitchen, 3 flat screen TVs, a Jotul wood-burning stove, and floor to ceiling windows, it is a magical vacation spot certain to deliver year round fun.

The master suite has a queen bed with pillow top mattress, flat screen TV, French doors opening to a 5 person Bullfrog Jacuzzi Tub overlooking the river, and a custom built pebble shower with dual shower heads (including a rain head). There are two bedrooms upstairs, each with log bunk beds (twin on top & queen below). Open the windows and let the smell of the mountains and the sound of the river lull you to sleep. The open loft has a cozy seating area, a third flat screen TV with DVD player, and Game Cube system for the kids (and the kids at heart). Directly on the river, you will find a large fire pit perfect for staying warm and making s'mores while watching the fishermen in your family catch that big brown just feet away.

Our cabin is located 30 minutes from Ennis and 35 minutes from the west entrance to Yellowstone National Park. It is situated in a friendly residential community with about six other homes and delightful neighbors. It is across the river from a Forest Service campground and a short walk to the world famous 'Grizzly Bar & Grill' (you must sample their delightful wine selection).

Our location is perfect for year round Montana fun and adventure. In the winter, spend your days skiing the famed slopes of Big Sky Ski Resort, snowmobiling in West Yellowstone, cross country skiing on miles of pristine trails, watching the bald eagles soar above the river while soaking in the jacuzzi, or simply enjoying the beauty of the Madison while curled up with a good book by the wood burning stove. Fill the long summer days with activities such as fishing from the property, floating the Madison, exploring Yellowstone National Park, hiking beautiful mountain trails, horseback riding, listening to live music while sipping local wines and soaking in the Norris Hot Springs, experiencing an authentic Montana rodeo or riding the antique railway in historic Virginia City.

We hope you enjoy our cabin as much as we do, and we look forward to sharing the beauty of Montana with you.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hello Dave, Here are my comments added to your listing… All true “We have always wanted to Visit Montana, and this cabin was the icing on the cake!The pictures on this site do not do it justice! It is not only a beautiful place to stay but a great place to relax. We enjoyed the river, lots of fishing from the property and rafting down the river. The drive to Yellowstone was only 35 minutes and well worth it! The owners were wonderful to deal with; my deposit was returned very promptly. I am definitely staying there again. We have been lucky enough to travel all over the world and this was one of the BEST vacations we have taken!!” Will talk to you In March to book again next summer J Thanks,Robbin

I looked long and hard for the right house to accommodate our family (including in-laws) on our trip out West. This house was absolutely perfect! We were also able to utilize the room over the garage which was ideal. I would echo all of the previous positive comments. The kitchen was stocked, the beds comfortable and the house just gorgeous. Although this location was pretty secluded, that was just what I needed to get away from the chaos of work. I envisioned having my coffee on the back porch every morning overlooking the river and it was like a little slice of heaven. We went into Yellowstone on 3 days, to Virginia City one day, and up to Norris Hot Springs and Ennis on one day. The drive to Yellowstone was about 40 minutes but incredibly beautiful. I just can't say enough positive things about this rental. We would highly recommend it to friends and wouldn't be surprised if we end up there again in the future!

Our only words for this property - sheer paradise.Exceeded our expectations and the photographs do not do it justice.

My Husband, myself, Son and his partner spent 2+ weeks there, it was a perfect property, comfortably and well furnished to a high standard. Spacious for all of us (our Son and partner had the annexe). Beds very comfortable and linen fresh, clean and in plentiful supply.

The Kitchen was a "Masterchef's" dream and as we are all great "foodies" it was a great relief to find every untensil and gadget that we wanted.

The location was ideal for us all to be able to relax and feel very much at home, the surroundings a joy to behold. The journey from The Fishing Shack to West Yellowstone was scenic and always interesting, providing more 'photo opportunities.

As photographers, we did not have to move far from the spot to encounter wildlife, we even had our own "resident" Kingfisher on the Madison, with the occasional visit from Bald Eagles.

This was the first time that we had used VRBO and would certainly do so again. Dave has been an excellent communicator and Maureen was an absolute star, so warm and friendly. So thanks to you all for making this an absolute dream come true, we did not want to return to the UK!!!!!

Even in the Rain and Snow - Beautiful

  • 5 of 5

We loved this place. Had a sibling reunion here with my brother and his wife from Alaska, my sister and her husband from Colorado. The weather was crazy we had rain, snow, hail and sun ... we loved the "fishing shack" ... this is no shack, it is so very lovely. I loved that fact that people left olive oil and lots of spices and dressing (none of them expired) and that there were some basic supplies in the pantry. A very nice kitchen to cook in with everything we needed (we are kind of a foodie group!).

The beds and linens were so beautiful and comfortable and warm. My sister in law had a bit of an issue with the hand made buck beds .. there was a little spike right where her knee was ... after the first night she remembered :)

We loved the fishing caught fish everyday ... either on Henry's lake or right in front of the shack ... and in Yellowstone National Park. The season's were changing and it was so nice to hang out and play games and just relax. Thank you so much for a wonderful time.

The Perfect Cabin!

  • 5 of 5

VRBO property always has some issues (broken toilet, marks on the wall or floor, etc.) but not this one, it was perfect. We could not believe it, but it was actually better than advertised. The owner built it in 08 with his own blood sweat and tears (he has a picture book of his construction in the living room). It is beautiful, at a great location, and again, the best VRBO owner I have ever worked with, Mr. Stewart is the best. His pride in what he calls a Fishing Shack shows in that every detail has been taken care of, it really is first class...PERFECT.

This Place is Magical!!!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful time we had here. The boys fished for days and we girls just relaxed a few days and went into Yellowstone (40 mins to get to the park) a few days. The drive goes quickly to get there and it is beautiful! The best relaxing week we spent for a vacation in a very long time. It doesn't get any better than this! HIGHLY HIGHLY recomment this Jewel!
