Mountain View Cabin is a beautiful, brand new, 1BR/1BA cabin with Loft and a Queen sleeper in the livingroom. Log siding and log accents, on a 20 acre parcel nestled between two mountain ranges as high as 10 and 11 thousand feet with stunning views in all directions. The cabin features tongue and groove walls and ceilings with attractive log structural accents. The wood burning stove in the living room adds to the rustic charm. The cabin sleeps 6 people, with a queen size bed in the master bedroom downstairs, two twins in the upstairs loft and a queen size pullout couch in the living room. The bathroom is equipped with a shower, sink and toilet.
The cabin has all the modern conveniences – a washer and dryer in the separate laundry room, a fully stocked modern kitchen with all-new appliances, and satellite TV. Wireless high speed internet is also available - just bring your laptop(s). The deck offers vast mountain and prairie views and has a BBQ grill. You’ll love relaxing there, as you take in the sights and sounds of nature.
Abundant wildlife abounds in the area, making it a perfect spot for nature lovers and wildlife photographers. You are likely to see moose, mule deer, pronghorn antelope, bighorn sheep, coyotes, rabbits and eagles.
The cabin is located in the midst of excellent fly fishing country - the #1 rated blue ribbon trout fishing river, the Madison, is only one mile as the crow flies - a short 3 mile drive. If you prefer fishing lakes, there are six lakes to choose from, only 2 to 10 miles away, each with their unique, breathtaking scenery: Cliff Lake, Wade Lake, Hebgen Lake, Quake Lake, Henry's Lake and Conklin Lake.
There are local places to rent boats, kayaks and canoes, buy fishing gear, sign up for guided fishing trips, or just ask some advice from the experts. There are also two restaurants within 10 miles of the cabin and there are numerous hiking, mountain biking, and horse trails only a short walk or drive away.
In only 25 minutes you can be in the town of West Yellowstone, the west entrance to Yellowstone National Park. You’ll enjoy fishing its rivers and lakes or touring the park’s magnificent scenery. Yellowstone Park is world famous for its geysers, wildlife, waterfalls, and its unique mix of a wide variety of beautiful geothermal features; from mud pots and mud volcanoes to incredible hot spring terraces. You might like to swim in the unique Firehole River swimming area or soak in natural hot spring pools. There are several visitor centers with wonderful displays and movies explaining where all this beauty came from. Yellowstone Park and the hundreds of miles surrounding it are definitely a must see.
The town of West Yellowstone provides numerous restaurants, two large grocery stores, a museum, gift shops, and an IMAX theater. There is also a Wolf and Grizzly Discovery Center in West Yellowstone, where you can view these live animals in their natural habitats. For the adventurous among you, the area provides several excellent professionally guided rafting trips, that offer both gentle and whitewater outings. There are several horseback riding outfitters in the area, including one not far from our property. They offer riding for every level of experience. If you’d like more ideas about things to see and do in the area, feel free to ask – there is so much to do that we can’t mention everything. Many visitors also include a day trip to Teton National Park in their itinerary. So come on out and create your own adventures!
If you’re looking for an authentic Western experience in the glorious Rocky Mountains and Yellowstone Park, you’re sure to love your stay at the Fishermen's Paradise Cabin!

This cabin is brand new. The grand opening is June 1, 2011. There are no guest comments yet, for that reason.
Everything we needed (except coffee and hair dryer... bring your own) for a wonderful private Yellowstone experience. The property was great for relaxing mornings or evenings when not in the park. The park was not packed in early September like it is in the summer so it was perfect for just the 2 of us on our anniversary!
If you are planning on driving there with a motorcycle, DON'T, the gravel roads are awful, and I mean really bad. The cabin itself is okay, it was well stocked with anything we needed, but we killed 8 big spiders within a day and a half, it also has cobwebs here and there (since I don't like spiders, this was a big "don't go back" for me). Also, I did think that after staying there it was too expensive per night for the cabin. We rented a different cabin north of Yellowstone for less than half the price at the beginning of our trip which was immaculate and only a little bit smaller. Also it was 30 miles back into West Yellowstone and farther to any town to the north. It isn't a bad cabin by any means, just could be cleaner (regarding the spiders) and a little closer to a town for our purposes.
Pros: Amazing scenery around property. Nothing but prairie, mountains and clear skies. Great star gazing with telescope provided by owner. About 40 min. to West entrance of Yellowstone National Park. City of West Yellowstone about 30 min. for groceries, etc. Diamond P ranch down the road provided a great horseback riding experience in the Yellowstone mountains. We discovered Yellowstone Ariel Adventure which the grandchildren loved. We are not fishermen so did not look into the fishing experience. Winds at the cabin pick up in the afternoon at time of our visit and the kids enjoyed kite flying. We were pleasantly surprised to see that paper products, laundry soap, etc. were provided.
Cons: Main living space furniture is too large for room (don't know how one would ever open the couch to a bed) and one is always moving it to get around. Unable to operate ceiling light/fan separately. So cannot use only fan in evening. There is no room for luggage except to place it on the very minimal floor space. No hanging rails for cloths. Only a few hooks on wall. Window screen in main area was bent so if you wanted air you also got bugs. There is no room in kitchen to put the non-refrigerated food. Dishwasher is under stairs and must be rolled over to sink to operate. Good luck moving couch to accomplish this. Pots and pans need replacing and only one had a lid. Plastic blinds need tackling to get them lowered or raised. Floor fan was broken so grandchildren were extremely hot and uncomfortable in loft. The loft has literally no head room unless you walk straight down the middle and kids were always hitting their heads. Stairs to loft had dangerously steep, shallow and slippery steps. A rail is needed along stair side floor of loft to prevent children from falling. One can see to toilet from spaces in loft floor boards. Door to toilet if not closed automatically swings and hits toilet due to uneven frame. Queen bedroom very small with again no space for luggage except on floor and then one is constantly trying to navigate. TV shelf has sharp edges and TV only plays videos. You cannot watch television. Queen mattress is EXTREMELY uncomfortable and needs replacing as does the bedding and pillows. Roads to cabin are stones and final section is dirt/grass ruts with raised center. Suggest you drive your SUV.
Overall our stay was amazing. It's a bit of a ride to get to Yellowstone national park. The views from the property are awesome.
This is an awesome remote cabin. I was glad we had 4 wheel drive as the road was quite rough. We loved the peaceful beauty. Pronghorn antelope walking around the cabin each morning and evening. Perfect for 2 people. Would be a bit crowded for more than 4 people. Would definitely use the cabin again.
We enjoyed the quite and mountain views. The drive along Hebgen & Earthquake Lakes a gorgeous but a bit of a drive to Yellowstone Park. A very efficient use of space and perfect for our group of 4.
Fishermen's Paradise is the perfect location for a fly fishing trip because the #1 rated blue ribbon trout fishing river, the Madison, is only one mile away as the crow flies - a short 2 mile drive. Or you can fish 6 different lakes, all within a 2-10 mile range from the cabin: Cliff Lake, Wade Lake, Henry's Lake, Quake, Lake, Hebgen Lake and Conklin Lake. There is a fishing outfitter only 2 miles away. Kayaks, boats or canoes can be rented locally. Abundant wildlife abounds in the area, such as elk, deer, pronghorn antelope or moose, which makes it the perfect place for nature lovers and wildlife photographers. Horseback riding, rafting and hiking can all be enjoyed close to the cabin. West Yellowstone, the west entrance to Yellowstone Park, is only 25 minutes away. This cabin is currently in the last stages of getting furnished. The grand opening is scheduled for June 1, 2011.
