Cozy cabin with wildlife viewing from the porch

  • 4 of 5

We just spent six nights at this beautiful cabin. We especially enjoyed sitting on the porch and watching the elk in the field across the Yellowstone river. We also saw one eagle and numerous deer. The beds were comfortable and the cabin was very clean. I also liked the extra attention to detail such as providing a spotting scope and tripod. The Full size washer and dryer was great! We would love to visit again one day in the future! Hannah was great to work with and easy to contact with any questions.

Beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. It is close enough to Yellowstone Park to make easy day trips, yet far enough away to avoid the crowds. The evenings on the deck were peaceful and offered unparalled views of the river, the valley and mountains. Deer, elk and even a bald eagle were a common sight. The kitchen was very nicely equpped and the whole cabin was clean and very well appointed.

This was our family's first trip to Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks. We had a great vacation. We thoroughly enjoyed the cabin. It's as nice as all the pictures appear. The view was breathtaking. This cabin was exactly what we were looking for.

Absolutely Gorgeous

  • 5 of 5

Pictures do not do this cabin justice. The cabin and the view were beautiful! The cabin was extremely clean, well maintained, and perfect for our family of four. Our sons loved the loft area. The cabin's location was convenient for our day trips to Yellowstone. Hiking the hills and bluffs behind the cabin was very exciting. One of our sons found a set of antlers, and I found a deer skull. We highly recommend this cabin!

Family Bliss in Paradise Valley

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week at Elk Cabin with our 3 young children and had a fantastic vacation that will remain fondly in our memories. We wanted somewhere just outside of Yellowstone NP that would allow us daily access but provide privacy, space, peace and quiet. The property offered this and more: spectacular views over the Yellowstone River and along the picturesque Paradise Valley; private riverfont access which was great for swimming and playing in the river's shallows; wildlife viewing from the deck with evening bbq's and star gazing.

The property has everything you could possibly want for a young family: the kids loved sleeping in the loft and having their own space. After a big day in the park, they were very happy to just unwind in front of the tv. The kitchen is fully equipped with quality appliances, cutlery and crockery and the cupboards and fridge were full of condiments and other basics which we did not need to go out and buy. Gardiner, the town at the entrance to Yellowstone NP has a good grocery store and is a very convenient spot to stock up on the way back from the park. Chico hot springs is an easy drive up the river and also makes for a fun excursion with kids.

Aaron was a friendly host with great tips on things to do in the area and he has done a superb job with the cabin. Great position, great facilities, Clean & tidy, private and convenient access to the park. We found it to be excellent value and would not hesitate to stay there again or recommend it to our friends..

We had a wonderful stay at the cabin. We fished every day in front of the cabin which was where they had the best luck out of all the places they tried on the Yellowstone. Close to the yellowstone park, we went there 4 different days. Saw lots of prong horn across the river just to the south of the cabin and Elk early in the morning. Emigrant has a great store for things you forgot to pick up and gas. And Livingston is only 1/2 hour North with many stores and restaurants.

Every day we saw 3 big bucks in the field across the river from our cabin and even saw two momma elk and three babies. Lots of wildlife and great views!

The beds were comfortable, well stocked kitchen with all the pots/pans, dishes and utensils needed to cook most meals. Dishwasher was great to have and also the washer/dryer. The cabin was very clean and decorated with a wildlife theme.

It was hot during the day, so I am happy we had air conditioning. It did cool down at night so we could open the windows and let the night air in.

Aaron was very helpful and pointed out places to go see wildlife and fish.
