Overview

About the property

Cabin, 1 Bedroom + Loft, 2 Bath, (Sleeps 9)

Get away from the highway! Silver Willows "Sarva" cabin is located on the south side of Soda Butte Creek on four acres, getting you away from the traffic that runs through town. It features many of the comforts of home with a mix of rustic charm, and is a great home base for visitors to Yellowstone and the Beartooth Wilderness.

**New Additions in 2017 and 2016:**

- We've updated a number of amenities and accessories in the kitchen for the peak 2017 season!

- A high chair and travel crib/bassinet are now available upon request for travelers with babies and infants. Please request these items when you book.

- Our sister cabin, "Ursa" (the Bear, VRBO #929453), is now available for rent on the property. Ursa is perfect for smaller groups, or you can rent both cabins. A stand of trees separates the cabins on the property, maintaining privacy for our guests.

- New twin bunk beds, new full futon, dresser and privacy screens added to the loft, allowing for better bedding and accommodation for larger groups!

- More trailer parking added for snowmobilers.

This cabin is named for Sarva, the moose constellation of the Sami people, and is located on the western, wooded half of a 4 acre property.

This cabin is found in the small town of Silver Gate, Montana, 1 mile outside of Yellowstone National Park’s northeast entrance and 3 miles down the road from Cooke City. The Silver Gate/Cooke City area is popular with wolf watchers (the Lamar Valley is a short drive away!) and park visitors looking to get away from the hustle and bustle of the larger border towns, as well as winter sports enthusiasts who come to take advantage of the recreation opportunities in the Beartooth Mountains.

Silver Willows is situated away from the highway on 4 acres of woodland bordered by Soda Butte Creek, which runs through the property on its way into Yellowstone National Park. The cabin sleeps up to 9 people on two queen sized beds (1 in the master, 1 in the loft) plus a queen sleeper sofa and twin bunk beds, all with memory foam mattresses. There is also a full sized futon.

Whether you want to enjoy the wonders of Yellowstone, a quiet picnic at the creek or a snowmobile ride in winter, Silver Willows is the perfect getaway.

About Max and Jenn

Jenn and Max are based in Seattle, but were annual visitors to Yellowstone for many years before choosing to build a cabin near the park. Max's work as a nature photographer drew him to the natural wonders of the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem, and the cabin was "a really good excuse to visit more often."

Max and Jenn purchased this cabin in 2010

Why Max and Jenn chose Montana

We were very fortunate to find a property that was so close to the park, is filled with trees, has mountain views and even has Soda Butte Creek running through it on the way to the park. It really felt like being in Yellowstone despite technically being outside the park boundary. Seeing moose grazing in our willows or spying one of the town foxes hunting in the meadow really makes us feel at home in nature. Even when we're tucked inside, we're constantly peeking out the window to see if any of our wild neighbors have come by to say hello.

What makes this cabin unique

The cabin is in a great spot. Positioned on the opposite side of the creek from the highway, our guests are able to enjoy a fair bit of peace and quiet. During winter, visitors can ski out from the cabin, or ride their snowmobiles onto the Bannock Trail up to Cooke City and the backcountry. With so much of the property growing wild, we love going for peaceful walks along the creek, brushing past the moose's favorite willows and walking beneath the pine trees as woodpeckers tap away and squirrels gather food.

This place is amazing!

  • 5 of 5

I can't even express into words how amazing this place is! The details were fabulous. There wasn't a need or want for anything while staying here. The stress of life just melts away when walking in the door. The area is serene, quiet, and relaxing. We had bison greet us on our arrival. I was up at daybreak with my coffee outside every day because I would get a visitor every day. Sometimes it was deer going down the trail next to the house to go to the creek, and sometimes it was the adorable little fox coming up the trail and hunting right around the cabin. If I could give this place 10+ stars I would because it deserves it!

Amazing property with attentive owners!

  • 5 of 5

We could not have been happier with this rental! Awesome location and complete with all the amenities! Max and Jen have this place set up beautifully! We had bison and deer visiting us daily! We enjoyed sitting in the sun on Soda Butte Creek sand bar. Evenings on the porch with the backdrop of the sheep on the hillside (through a spotting scope) were incredible! Easy access to the park and cute small towns of Silver Gate and Cooke City. We even took a drive up the Beartooth Highway to the Top of the World! Thanks so much for the wonderful vacation! We will definitely stay here again!

Fantastic Cabin

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a wonderful 3 day stay as a family with 3 young kids. The cabin is very well situated on the north-eastern entrance to Yellowstone and well supplied. The kids were delighted with the bunk beds and the supply of children's books and DVDs to keep them occupied in the evening after a day touring the national park. I hope we get the opportunity to visit again in the future.

Silver Willows Sarva Cabin is excellent. Would highly recommend this property to any one.

  • 5 of 5

Max, the owner was wonderful. If you had any questions or concerns he helped immediately. The home was immaculate, furnishings extremely comfortable and the kitchen had everything you would ever want. Being just 1 mile from the northeast entrance of Yellowstone Nat. Park was so convenient. Many late afternoon we would see, "our moose" in the willows next to Soda Butte Creek right outside our kitchen window. Sarva Cabin had all the amenities anyone would like. Again would recommend Silver Willows highly to anyone.
