Gardiner Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms + Loft, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 8)

The Mountain King Cabin is an amazing place to call home during your visit to Yellowstone Park. Located in the heart of Gardiner, on the banks of the Yellowstone River, it is just a mile from the north entrance to the park. The house faces south looking into the park highlighting stunning views of 11,000 foot 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.

This rustic Montana log cabin is an inviting, airy open space it's is great for groups 6-8 with a fun loft for the kids! The Mountain King has private river access shared with the raft company for you fishing buffs. Walk down the path and have your line in the water in minutes. This stretch of the Yellowstone is a local secret because there are very few ways to access it. This section is not fished by commercial drift boats, the fishing is exceptional.

Stay in this beautiful cabin, AND spend a couple days rafting, horseback riding, and viewing wild life inside Yellowstone. It's easy and all in one place! Large groups can book our neighboring Yellowstone cabins the Eagles Nest and Grizzly Den.....perfect for multi-family vacations!

Why Liza faerber chose Yellowstone

Airy and sunlight filled, this wood interior cabin is welcoming immediately! Dramatic scenic views off of the deck yet nestled in town for the perfect hum of a Yellowstone summer. Close to the park and walking distacne to all of Gardiner.

What makes this cabin unique

For larger groups, rent the neighboring Grizzly Den cabin or Eagles Nest cabin. Great for family reunions or work groups! We can also help connect you to a park tours, raft trips, and even a massage!

Very cool cabin, great views, perfect location

  • 4 of 5

Loved the cabin. Exceeded expectations. Very clean and modern. Had all the basic supplies. Plenty of towels, shampoo, etc. Grocery store, coffee shop and gas station all within a block. Short walk over the bridge to main town with plenty of restaurants and great view of the park. Porch overlooks Yellowstone River. Board games for the kids too. Only negative is property manager is slow to respond, if at all. But everything worked out and we would definitely stay here again! Also highly recommend Flying Pig rafting next door.

Beautiful cabin!!!!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here for one night with my husband and parents. It was absolutely beautiful. Its right on the Yellowstone river, so peaceful!!! It is in a perfect location right near the north entrance to Yellowstone and in walking distance to all of the shops and restaurants. There is a nice, big deck and both bedrooms are pretty large, and there is a huge loft upstairs. The kitchen was stocked with everything you would need to cook for a large family. The owners could not have been more amazing, kind, or accommodating. Thank you for a wonderful and relaxing vacation!

Stunning view!!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time at the Mountain King Cabin. It's an amazing location and the view is breathtaking. We used The Flying Pig next door for several of our adventures and it was so convenient. We will definitely be returning.

sweet little house with an amazing view

  • 4 of 5

the house is comfortable and the view from the little deck is absolutely amazing. you're almost suspended over the river. our last night, we watched 2 adult and 2 baby elk wandering around on the opposite bank. lovely.

the problems with the house have been mentioned in a few previous reviews-- the biggest issues being: 1) thin walls-- the outfitting company next door started up with movement and music at 7:30-8:00 every morning. their deck butts up against the outer walls of the bedrooms of the mountain king. you won't be sleeping late here in the summer. if you're planning on rising early to go into Yellowstone, then it won't be a problem. 2) parking is pretty atrocious. it's a long thin alleyway. people at the rental next door were parked partially up on the small sidewalk for that house. we had to thread a needle between their car and a truck from a house across the alley. you will either be backing in or out. it's do-able but certainly not optimal.

the house has a great location, though, with the great river views but also easy walking to downtown Gardiner and shops/restaurants. we also walked to the Gardiner Rodeo while we were there. our kids loved the little bunk room on the second floor.

be aware of the parking issues but the other things about the house outweigh that issue for us. i would stay here again.
