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.
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"
Great cabin. Great location. Perhaps could use a little more storage, as we had to live out of our suitcases because there was no place to put our clothes. No big deal. Overall, a great place.
We had never been to the area, so we guessed at where to stay. We made a good choice. Marty's cabin is about 5 miles north of Gardiner on a windy dirt road. We saw many animals on the road on each trip. At dusk, a massive herd of elk come down and are within a mile of the cabin each night. The cabin itself sits in a group of about 15 or so cabins. They are all very close together (20 feet apart maybe). The ones on the river share a front yard that is small but right on the river with a few places to walk down. The cabin is smallish, as you can see from the pics but very well stocked and very comfortable. Everything worked well (save the ice maker). It was perfectly stocked with linens, towels, supplies, soap, etc. we enjoyed watching and listening to the river and watching the deer and elk on the bank across. We had a few deer and many rabbits in the yard all week. If you are in the area, this is a good option and we may repeat when we are back.
My husband and I chose this cabin after scrutinizing over each cabin offered on the Yellowstone River outside Gardiner, MT.
First, some disclaimers...I'm a little high maintenance, my husband is laid back. I look for quality and amenities while husband is into proximity of animals and a big comfortable chair to sit in. Marty's cabin had everything. Well supplied would be an understatement. The kitchen had every gadget anyone could need to prepare a simple meal or a gourmet feast.
We had so much fun just hanging out at this location.
We knew we wanted to be in a somewhat remote location for better animal viewing. But, since we are not twenty-something we did not want to choose an isolated destination with no other humans for ten miles just in case we could not get our bear spray out of the holster in time. So, a few other cabins close by was just fine.
There were two elk herds behind the cabins and only maybe a few hundred feet down the gravel road. They entertained us almost every morning and evening. The bugeling was magnificent! Antelope families were located all along the gravel road leading to town. We were amazed at how many we saw. We also saw eagles, hawks, tons of magpies and some darling bluebirds chasing each other.
The river is within easy walking distance of the cabin. Many people were fly fishing so we watched. (I would trim some of the willows growing just at the edge of the lawn so you could see the river better if it's allowed.)
We spent 11 days at Marty's cabin just soaking in the wonderful and peaceful scenery.
The most spectacular event that happened while we were there was the lunar eclipse. We were sitting out by the fire pit one night and our friends mentioned that either that night or the next was supposed to be the eclipse. It was a black, clear night and and as the moon rose behind the mountain we could see the eclipse was already underway. We put the cover on the fire pit to enhance the darkness of the night and as we looked straight overhead was the most beautiful night any of us had ever seen. The stars were beyond brilliant and the milky way stretched from horizon to horizon. The sky seemed as if you could reach up and touch the stars. We are not from Montana or anywhere near there. We live in a big city and had not seen the milky way with our naked eyes since we were children. It was beyond awesome!
Marvelous location! Terrific cabin!
