Yellowstone Lodge Rental Photos and Description

Lodge, 3 Bedrooms + Bunk Area, 3 Baths (Sleeps 8-10)

Eco-Friendly Lodging in Yellowstone

Come experience the magic of Yellowstone National Park. Our custom log lodge, located just 5 miles from the north entrance of Yellowstone, is just the place to hang your hat after a long day of Yellowstone adventuring. This 4 bedroom, 3 bath, 3000 sq. ft custom cabin/timber frame home luxuriously sleeps 8-10. Reclaimed lumber, true plaster, slate, hardwood flooring, and unique western touches ornate this vacation rental. Enjoy a cup of coffee or a gourmet meal on the expansive deck while soaking in the immense views of Yellowstone, specifically the steam from Mammoth Hot Springs. Let the sounds of Bear Creek soothe your soul.

Summer in Yellowstone includes whitewater rafting, hiking in Yellowstone, fly fishing, horseback riding, wildlife viewing and more! Imagine those Montana clear blue skies as you cast your fishing line on nearby blue-ribbon trout streams. Feel your heart skip a beat at the wonderous views in Yellowstone National Park, and the many moose, elk, wolves or bear you might catch a peak of. Summer in Montana and Yellowstone National Park is not to be missed!

“Our goal is for each guest to have the best possible experience in Yellowstone and they can pick from a myriad of adventures to fit their groups needs and desires,” said lodge owner Lisa Coleman.

We welcome everyone who wishes to enjoy Yellowstone and all that it has to offer. Please see our other rentals #122533 and #132784, if you are interested in weddings or big family reunions.

I have been a Yellowstone back country ranger for many years and am happy to help you arrange all activities including but not limited to fly fishing, hiking, rafting, horseback riding, dog sledding, and tours within Yellowstone.

About Lisa Coleman

I own and manage all of my vacation rentals to provide the special attention that each guest deserves. I was a backcountry ranger in Yellowstone for many years and am happy to help you arrange activities in and outside of the park. My goal is for each guest to have a Yellowstone adventure that they will never forget.

Why Lisa Coleman chose Yellowstone

We built this home from recycled materials found in Montana. The original building was an old homestead built in the 1800's that a farmer was going to burn down. Instead, we tore down the logs and re-stacked it in Jardine. Other materials include an old fence torn down by a neighbor. The walls are plaster with slate in the bathrooms and kitchen. This used to be our home and we loved the unique touches. Please come and see for yourself the beauty in recycling.

What makes this lodge unique

The Sunny Slope Lodge is only 5 miles to the north gate of Yellowstone and the town of Gardiner. The park, restaurants, shops, activities are all at your fingertips yet you may never want to leave the house. You truly feel out of the hustle and bustle of town and Yellowstone yet you are only a stone's throw away from everything.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"What a beautiful setting and the house is gorgeous too! I rented this place to have a xmas gathering for me and 7 of my friends. We couldn't of chosen a better place. The house was clean and well equipped and the beds were extremely comfortable. None of us wanted to get up in the morning. I would definitely recommend this place and I myself would love to stay again sometime. The North entrance to Yellowstone National Park is only a few miles away, which is super convenient. If you plan to stay here during the winter, be sure to have good tires or 4wheel drive if there is snow on the ground. The driveway can be a challenge for a wimpy sedan :)"

Our Wonderful Stay at Sunny Slope Lodge!

  • 5 of 5

I cannot say enough good things about Sunny Slope Lodge! Our extended family of eleven loved this rustic lodge with its proximity to Yellowstone, comfortable furnishings, and spectacular scenery. We gathered in the spacious kitchen-dining-living room area which promoted "togetherness" to eat, talk, play games and do puzzles, and view the landscape. The outside deck, complete with a barbecue and picnic table, extended the family area. All bedrooms and bathrooms were clean and comfy with the master bedroom containing a great deal of storage room. A big shout-out goes to Lisa Coleman whose prompt answers to my questions and customer service was outstanding!

Loved it! Loved it! Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely wonderful property. It is so light and open inside. In fact when we build a new house we will definitely be using lots of elements of this house in the design. We use the house for us to come together for a trip to Yellowstone and it was perfect!

Only bit of advice is that there are no shades in the windows so bring your sleeping mask to keep out the light. Sun comes up really early around here!

Sunny Slope Lodge

  • 5 of 5

Great cabin and great layout in an unforgettable location. Cabin was well stocked with character and comfort. Just outside of town on quiet road. Great location for visiting Yellowstone, fishing the Yellowstone River or many other great surrounding waters. Lisa Coleman was a great host and made certain we had all information that we needed.

Sunny Slope Lodge

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Sunny Slope Lodge was perfect! A short trip from a mountain into Gardiner and North Gate of Yellowstone. The lodge was clean, beautiful and made our 2 families (8 people) feel at home. We left Sunny Slope Lodge discussing when we could possibly return. Gardiner has everything a family needs at your fingertips.

Great home in a beautiful setting .....

  • 5 of 5

Perfect home if you're visiting Yellowstone - only a five minute drive to get into the Park's north entrance. Being so close to the town of Gardiner is a plus for groceries, restaurants, etc.

Our family of seven was very comfortable in this home. We especially enjoyed the open feeling due to windows all around - with gorgeous views in every direction.

Owner was very helpful in planning our visit and checking in to make sure we had what we needed. Highly recommend this home.

We loved our time in this unique home-everything was perfect, from the amazing view to the details of the home itself- Lisa was always responsive as we made our plans months ago- we would definitely recommend this home to others and maybe even go back again someday!
