Overview

Lazy Acres House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Loft + Den, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

The Lazy Moose Lodge is a new (Spring 2011) luxury log home/chalet which backs up to the Gallatin National Forest on a quiet dead-end street and only 7 miles from the West Gate of Yellowstone National Park. The home is privately situated in a grove of beautiful Lodge Pole Pine, Aspen and Douglas Fir trees and has a great view from it's covered back porch into the Gallatin forest, including riding trails and native forest wildlife (e.g., deer and an occasional moose or elk). It has 1,250 sq ft of living space, including 3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Laundry Room, Family Room, Dining Room, Kitchen, Sleeping Loft plus a full length covered front porch and a very private covered back porch (dining porch!) overlooking the Gallatin National Forest!

Beautifully decorated in a rustic mountain lodge theme with all new furniture, fixtures and household items. Ideally suited for up to 6 adults plus children for a maximum party size of 10. Simply one of the 'best of the best' in area rental vacation homes!

For large family or friend gatherings, we have other rental properties immediately adjacent to the Lazy Moose Lodge - e.g., the newly constructed Mountain View Lodge and the recently renovated Mini-Moose Cabin! Check them out at VRBO and the link below and if interested in renting one or more of these properties during the same calendar period, be sure to ask about our 'Village' rates!

Also, if interested, please ask about our referral arrangements, including horseback riding, trout fishing, hunting and snowmobiling.

Lastly, if you notice a gap in the VRBO calendar between existing bookings which is less than our minimum number of night stay requirement and are interested in renting within that 'gap', please contact us and we'll do our best to accommodate your request.

To SELF-BOOK the Lazy Moose Lodge, click on our safe, secure and user-friendly website listed below (in the Owner Info section) and you can be booked and confirmed in minutes. But if you have questions or need help, please contact us and we'll be happy to assist you with the booking process.

Wonderful family trip to Yellowstone

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I brought both of our sets of parents for a big family vacation in Yellowstone. The Lazy Moose Lodge was the perfect place for the 6 of us to stay! The house is beautiful and rustic. It is so secluded; you are right in the forest. The back deck was perfect for grilling and bbqing. The kitchen is modern and well stocked with non-perishable staples like salt, sugar, coffee, tea, condiments. Every day we drove the short 10-15 min drive to the West entrance of the park. Just as a side note: the hot water in the showers is pretty spotty and we didn't have too much hot water most days (lukewarm, at best). This wasn't a big deal because it was the summer anyways, but just something to note. The owners were available every time I called during our stay, even if it was just for a quick question. Overall, it's hard to go wrong with this choice! Visit Yellowstone and definitely stay at the Lazy Moose Lodge! We WILL be back!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the great 5-star review and a special thanks for choosing Lets Go To Yellowstone Vacation Rentals to satisfy your lodging needs. Although we’ve never had any reported issues with the hot water capacity (which is provided via a top of the line, quick recovery heater), we’ll definitely have it checked out asap. It may be that your party of six adults pushed it to its limits – especially if there were concurrent showering/bathing and laundry/dishwasher activity! Thanks again!

Great House for Families, no Mountain View

  • 5 of 5

The house was beautiful and very well appointed. It was nice to have things like spices, paper towel. dish soap, etc in the house. We rent a lot of houses and they do not all offer that. We loved the house and its location. A few very minor things I would note....all the other houses in this development has a beautiful view of the mountains. This house does not. The washer has the longest wash cycle ever. We ended up needed to do a fair bit of laundry and it took a long time, but were grateful for the laundry facilities. The futon furniture up stairs needed a few minor repairs. Overall, we loved the house!

Off-The-Charts Lovely Cabin. Your Own Private Montana!

  • 5 of 5

We were wonderfully over-served by the lovely Lazy Moose Lodge as there were just two of us. The place comfortably sleeps 8 and easily sleeps 12 (if you use the futon and pull out sofa-bed) so we felt like kings of the forest! The place smells wonderfully of freshly sawed wood. The kitchen is well-appointed with everything you'll need - even a Slow Cooker. (Except for a tea kettle. Why do no VRBOs provide a tea kettle? To us, it seems to be an essential part of the kitchen. You never know just how much until you no longer have one. We travel with a "traveling" teapot, as well, so no tea kettle is an inconvenience.) There are plenty of extra towels and washcloths. The "cabin" is warm, welcoming, and felt remarkably rustic and woodsy even though it is a curated sort of rusticity - read: high end and sumptuous. We were so happy to be out of the hubbub of West Yellowstone. We are NOT West Yellowstone kind of people and avoid all sorts of traps: booby traps, claptrap and tourist traps among them. Thankfully the cabin is about seven miles out of town. An easy (and very quick) drive at Montana's 70 mph speed limit. LOL. The exception in town was the Playmill Theatre. That was the real deal. Not some second-rate summer stock. (BOOK YOUR TICKETS AND GO!) Good food was more than a little difficult to locate in West Yellowstone. The Chinese food was sub-standard, likewise the new Pho shop. Beartooth BBQ was not it! Not at all. We did have a very good breakfast at Old Town Cafe that featured a bison patty and some very nice biscuits and gravy. That we recommend! Don't worry about the food. You have a lovely kitchen back at your million dollar cabin, right? There are two medium-sized grocery stores in town that are more than adequately stocked for your cooking needs. (The West Entrance to Yellowstone is easier to use than the other entrances. Too bad the tourism of West Yellowstone got so out of hand.) Gosh, we had a lovely time. We even assembled a rather hard-to-complete jigsaw puzzle that we found in the cabin. I haven't done that since I was a kid... (The owners of the cabin gave us a "welcome call" on our cell phone - always a nice thing to do and so rare in our experience with VRBO. To me, it shows they care and are "on call" should anything out of the ordinary be needed.) You will not find better accommodation near the West Entrance of Yellowstone than the Lazy Moose Lodge. You certainly won't find it in West Yellowstone itself. That you can take to the bank.

SURROUNDED BY BEAUTY.

  • 5 of 5

The Lazy Moose was a spacious, wonderful, relaxing home that we looked forward to coming back to after a long day in the park, horseback riding, site seeing, etc. This home has everything anyone could need including a relaxing, peaceful back porch overlooking the Gallatin Forest which we enjoyed daily. We stayed in the Mini Moose two years ago, and we loved it as well, however, we invited friends with us and needed more room. We would highly recommend this beautiful home as well as any of the three homes offered by this owner.

Splendor in Yellowstone

  • 5 of 5

What a fantastic vacation home from which to enjoy the Yellowstone/Teton areas. All the comforts of a well equipped and constructed cabin. Had the privilege of meeting the very welcoming and gracious owners. Quality people offering a quality temporary home.

Perfect solution for an extended family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Three generations of our family stayed at the Lazy Moose and Mountain View Lodges during our vacation to Yellowstone. They are right near each other and were the perfect solution for our extended family – everyone had the privacy they wanted, there were enough bathrooms & showers for everyone, and we gathered together for home-cooked breakfasts and some dinners, using the well-appointed kitchens, with plenty of seating. The Lazy Moose Lodge has a back porch where the grown-ups gathered after the kids were tucked in. The west entrance of Yellowstone is only about 7 miles away, and we spent full days enjoying the different areas of the park. (Saw lots of wildlife, geysers, hot springs, waterfalls and had several great hikes in the park!) Grandpa and the grandkids even took a short hike in the forest behind our lodges. Both lodges are absolutely beautiful and nicely decorated. We arrived here from more rustic accommodations in the Grand Tetons National Park, so we were grateful for the full-sized kitchen and washer and dryer. We would highly recommend these lodges to anyone – they are by far the best vacation rentals we have ever stayed at!
