There is nothing quite like a blue ribbon trout river just outside your front door. The cabin is positioned along the west side of the Yellowstone River. This is a great place to stay when touring Yellowstone National Park. The Gardiner North Entrance (4 miles away) is the only year round entry into the most visited National Park in the United States.
Within a ten minute drive you will arrive in Mammoth Hot Springs and see for yourself all the wonders Yellowstone Park has to offer.
The cabin features a full kitchen with all dishes and utensils provided. Both Master Suites have 1 queen and 1 oversized full bed, also each suite has its own full bath. Just outside the spacious patio you will find a large fire pit with plenty of seating for all your friends and family. You will love the stunning views and relaxing atmosphere we have to offer.
My name is Marty Haskins. In the picture is my father-in-law Frank Kroll. We purchased the cabin in November of 2005 along with my wife Kelly and Frank's wife Debbie. We bought the property thinking of how great it would be to have a 'getaway' that is riverfront, park-front, and forest service-front. We have been blessed to find out the demand for housing near Yellowstone Park. We only thought we would rent out about 6 weeks a year and now are renting the whole summer. We spend a lot of time at the cabin in the spring and fall. The picture you see is the fire pit about 10 yards from our back door. As you can see I like a big campfire.
Marty Haskins purchased this cabin in 2004
Gardiner is a very special place in Montana and it just happens to be the only year round entrance into the park. This location is ideal for a vacation in the Park. For me it is ideal for fishing the mighty Yellowstone River. I have been vacationing in Yellowstone since I was a young boy. I grew up in rural North Dakota and had an Aunt and Uncle who lived in Billings, MT. They had two boys my age so my brother and I would come to Montana in the summer for two weeks and they would take us to the Park. Thanks to my Aunt and Uncle I now live in Bozeman, I met my beautiful wife in Billings and I now own a cabin bordering Yellowstone Park.
The cabin is surrounded by National Park Land, Forest Service Land, and the Yellowstone River. Best of all it is only 300 yards from the park, yet 4 miles from the entrance and the town of Gardiner. You get a secluded base camp from the park that is only minutes away. Our favorite thing to do is sit around the campfire at night while Debbie makes peach cobbler in the dutch oven.
A wonderful vacation. The HomeAway listing was very descriptive of what we found when we got there. The cabin is 2 bedroom, 2 bath plus full kitchen and common space as well as a back patio that overlooked the Yellowstone river and there were even steps going down to the river. The cabin slept 6 easily with 4 in one room and two in the other, and it was also very clean. They had included everything we needed - games to play, extra towels and even laundry soap. We liked this location because it was quiet and we could sit outside and just listen to the river and watch the rafts of people go by and the people fishing. Some of the cabins had wood privacy dividers on their patios so they couldn't see the neighbors, but we were glad this cabin didn't have that as it would also cut off the breadth of the river view which was a real plus for us.
We couldn't have an outside fire because it was the dry season, but we made do with microwave smores using Hershey bars and marshmallows on chocolate chip cookies (while we played Monopoly). All three generations in our party had a wonderful time and the owner stayed in touch with us to make sure we had everything we needed.
There were plenty of things to do besides visiting Yellowstone National Park - fishing, river rafting, horseback riding, zip line, and there are some shops in town plus a few really great places to eat. When the oldest of us (that's me) wanted to find a place to sit while the rest shopped, there were plenty of outdoor benches in town and I found the Gardiner Chamber of Commerce to be a wonderful air conditioned place (plus indoor restroom) to spend some time looking at local historical pictures and information. They also had free maps and information about 6 neighboring states as well as all the national parks in Idaho, Utah, Montana, both Dakotas as well as Wyoming. The Gardiner Chamber of Commerce is one of the the most accessible and hospitable CofC I've visited.
We all decided that this cabin as well as the area gets 5 out of 5 stars.
Accommodations were welcoming and the cabin details were perfect for the location. It was clean, safe and had all the details anyone would need. We loved the instruction sheet information about the cabin use.
The patio was our favorite spot to sit after a day in Yellowstone. We loved watching the rabbits play. It was so cool to be able to go down to the Yellowstone River from the little trails at the back.
The road was stone and very dusty, but it was the place to see herds of Elk, Pronghorn and even a couple coyote ! It was easy to get to from the airport and easy access to Gardiner and Yellowstone north entrance. I fell in love with Lamar Valley which was also at the north end of Yellowstone. So this cabin, location and accommodations fit all of our needs.
There were only 4 adults on our trip and we all seemed to have the right amount of space. We enjoyed it ! Would recommend highly to our friends.
The attraction was Yellowstone, Lamar Valley for me. We liked Rosie's for breakfast and lunch. But the Lighthouse restaurant just around the corner from the cabin was "awesome" !!! But we also like the Roosevelt Lodge for lunch in the park!
We really enjoyed our stay! Riverfront property on great location close to Yellowstone north entrance. Clean and comfortable cabin. Outdoor fire pit. Plenty of room for the kids to run around outside. The owner Marty is friendly and accommodating. We would definitely stay here again on next family trip to Yellowstone.
We loved every minute spent at the cabin. Yellowstone was wonderful, but it was so nice to go "home" to the cabin and relax in the evening. Everything was provided, even little extras that were unexpected but so appreciated. We never tired of the views and the river right outside the back porch. I would absolutely recommend this cabin and would love to be able to come again.
Can't go wrong when choosing this cabin! This cabin was great for our family (4 adults and 3 children), it has everything you need. It is very clean. The cabin is located just a few miles from Yellowstone's north entrance. We all had such a wonderful time here (lots of fun memories) and can't wait to do it again!!
Absolutely one of the most peaceful, tranquil stays of our lives. The location was perfect. The scenery was beautiful and listening to The Yellowstone River flow just outside the door made this cabin "PERFECTION"
