Overview

Montana House Rental Photos and Description

House, 1 Bedroom (KIng and 2 twins) + sofa sleeper, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

The Woodland Star home is situated creekside, on our amazing and unique parcel of land in the small mountain town of Silvergate. This vintage log home has mountain charm with modern conveniences. It's bright and sunny, with large windows, wood floors, and a great 'fool's gold' fireplace! There's 2 bar chairs if you like to hang out in the kitchen, or a fabulous, large, and comfortable dining room table set. The living room is super comfy, with a couch, easy chair, and a large rocking chair and a DVD player with a nice size screen. We do have a bluetooth sound bar if you bring music.

The cabin sits conveniently off the highway on its large lot, with a stand of evergreen trees in front for privacy. The sunny, West side has a large lawn with an amazing sitting area RIGHT NEXT to the Soda Butte Creek, as well as a mature stand of lodgepole pine trees in the back yard. We have a firepit next to the creek if you like to roast marshmallows!

You can enjoy fishing right from the yard! There's also a huge grassy town park right across the street.

The home has great views of the surrounding mountains. You can often see mountain goats to the south, and mountain sheep to the north at the same time! The king size bed has huge views of a snow capped peak all summer, and the sound of the creek comes in the west window. The huge bedroom also has 2 twin size beds in it. The bedroom is on the south side of the home with great windows looking at the mountains, trees and creek.

This is a fantastic setting for a Yellowstone experience you'll always remember. The little town of Silvergate itself is very charming and you are close to the Lamar Valley, the best place in the Park to view wildlife. Also, the Beartooth Pass to Red Lodge Montana is, according to legendary news anchor Charles Kuralt 'the most spectacular road in America'! There are several hiking trails from the cabin, and 4 different creeks with waterfalls all a 30 min hike or less. Silvergate also has a couple of cafes, general stores, and gift shops. There are several lodges in our little town as well.

We look forward to hosting you and your family !!

About John and Kate Mickus

John, Kate and Emily Mickus live in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. They are avid outdoors enthusiasts and love the Silvergate area!! 'This is the place we go to find adventure and wilderness from Jackson Hole! We love to provide a warm and comfortable experience for our guests!'

John and Kate Mickus purchased this house in 1975

Why John and Kate Mickus chose Montana

We love the Northeast corner of Yellowstone. This area is inspiring to us with its towering peaks up close to the town, and the abundance of wild animals! It is truly a place to connect with nature, and to enjoy some really nice folks as well!

What makes this house unique

We have the most unique setting in the valley. Our large parcel of land right in the middle of Silvergate has both big views and sunshine as well as the sounds and delight of the creek running through!

Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We had an excellent time and the accommodations were excellent. The view and atmosphere were outstanding as was the cabin. What I did not expect was that our hosts and our caretakers as well as everyone we met in Silvergate and Cooke City were so friendly. We were even greeted by the town bison named Franklin. Thank you to Pat and Cat and Living Waters Properties for making sure we were comfortable and relaxed. We wil be back and hope to bring our new grandson.

Perfect Cabin

  • 5 of 5

Stayed in this cabin with a family member.

It was wonderful. We were out hiking and sightseeing in Yellowstone every day; and honestly a highlight of each day was knowing we were coming back to this cabin to relax, take in the views, read by the fire, etc. Choosing this place to stay is a big part of a very memorable trip.

Slept great every night due to the large comfortable bed and amazing snowcapped views to wake up to. Saw lots of moose and bison in the immediate area around the cabin. Evening strolls were divine. Cooked nice meals every night in the equipped kitchen or out on the grill.

Can't recommend this cabin enough; and the owner, John, was a true pleasure to talk and work with.

Light, spacious and airy

  • 5 of 5

Lovely place to stay! High ceilings, large windows and ceiling fans keep the cabin beautifully open and light. Everything was super comfortable--from the beds/bedding to the towels to the dining room chairs. Lots of thoughtful touches and comforts. Of course the Silver Gate location and wildlife are awesome too. I wasn't sure how the single large bedroom would work for our family of 4, but it was just fine.

Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful comfortable, spacious cabin, great log fires, beautiful setting in quiet quaint Silvergate and prefect for daily expeditions into Lamar valley & Yellowstone in general. Nothing was too much trouble for our host John and in particular calling our attention to harlequin ducks on the creek and a pine marten in the tree. Then there were the local bison and moose wandering the streets and great BBQ in Cooke City 3 miles up the street. We'll be back one day for sure!

Comfortable, cozy, convenient

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at this wonderful little cabin in June, 2014 during a two month road trip. We wanted to be convenient to the Lamar Valley of Yellowstone for wildlife watching. It is also at the base of both the Beartooth Scenic Highway and the Chief Joseph Scenic Byway, two of the most beautiful drives in America. The owner was easy to deal with and quick to respond to any questions we had. There was also a caretaker on the property who was there if you needed anything. This cabin has everything you need for a comfortable stay and is within steps to a great little restaurant and across the street from a little store where you can pick up limited supplies, souvenirs, and even rent a spotting scope for your trip into Yellowstone. We had the full gamut of weather, which is to be expected in June, and so spent some time sitting in the sun out by the creek on a couple of warm days and spent a cozy, snowy afternoon by the fireplace on another. We thoroughly enjoyed our time here and are already planning another visit.
