About Collette Wilkes

I am a professional wildlife photographer. Unlike most rental properties, this is actually my residence as well. I spend a fair amount of time travelling and on backpacking trips, so I rent it out while I am away. I live in this beautiful place with my two rescue Saint Bernhards and a rescued cat from Canada.

Why Collette Wilkes chose Yellowstone

Henry's Lake is a wonderful place. Some of the best fishing in the world is here and in the many rivers in the area, all within 30 minutes. If you like wildlife, here are just a few of the animals you may see from the deck of the cabin: Sand Hill Cranes, Pelicans, Muskrats, Eagles, Raccoons, and Moose. It is truly a very special place. Yellowstone NP is 15 miles away and Grand Teton NP just two hours.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Hello you must be Jon...as the lady who mows your lawn calls you that. Thank you so so much for letting us stay at your big beautiful house. I love all the rooms and yards, especially because it has a lake in your yard! How cool is that! Well I hope your trip in Arizona was fun. Got to go, don't want to miss my plane back to California. I hope you enjoy my picture of a bison, we saw many. P.S. Love the photography photos.

impressive house

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful house. It is located inside Henry State Park, every room has its own shower/bathroom and has its own great view. And it is actually not far from west yellowstone entrance (15-20min drive). We had great time here. Kids had loads of fun playing in the lower floor. Overall we were super happy about this house and had wonderful time here.

Reviewer Comments:

The Wolf RIver Ranch is a spacious, well appointed 5 bedroom home that was the perfect base camp for our family launches into Yellowstone. It accommodated, 8 adults and one toddler with plenty of communal and private space. The setting on Henry's Lake, the beautiful landscaping, and outdoor firepit were ideal for exploring, relaxing and communing with nature. Island Park and West Yellowstone are great small towns to explore in addition to the short ride to the West Entrance to Yellowstone. We loved the gourmet kitchen, outdoorsy/western decor and the many rustic but elegant touches in this lovely cabin. We highly recommend it! In addition, Collette Wilkes at Rainbow Realty was extremely helpful and allowed us to ship our "baby gear" to her office to hold for our arrival. All around, a delightful place to holiday with a large family group.

Reviewer Comments:

Cabin was spectacular. 2 things we wish we had. 1- there is no furniture in the basement common area- a shame the space is beautiful but not of much use without furniture. 2- there are only 7 dinner plates which means you are doing dishes after every meal(not sure what you do if you have more than 6 guest as we did- paper plates and many trips to the dump I guess). The cabin is spectacular really nice and well cared for. I agree with another review I had read- it is a little weird to rent a house and have personal belongings there. We enjoyed the photo albums and learning a bit about the owner- which just made you feel like part of the family. If I had an extra million $ laying around I would love to own the place- which would not be good for those renting the space because I would be selfish and keep it to my self. Nice stay truly a beautiful property.

Island Park annual vactioneers

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is gorgeous! The views are spectacular, and the yard is absolutely perfect! Beds were comfortable but needed new bedspreads/coverings; when you walk into a house of this caliber you expect perfection and the bed coverings were a appointment. Unfortunately there were only seven dinner plates and 6 smaller salad plates. We had 6 people on our trip and had to do dishes after every meal which is a waste of water whether we did them by hand or used the dish washer. The basement was beautiful and a wonderful space; unfortunate there was no furniture in the common room except for one very nice chair which made the space useless (what a shame we would of loved to have played a gamed, watched a movie or just hung out there and visited after our busy days. Loved the kitchen appliances they were great/ all upper end. Bathrooms were nice and I absolutely loved the whirlpool tub in the master. We did have a slight problem with the dryer which made it a little stressful getting the towels dried; my suggestion would be make sure all the towels are washed and dried before you go to bed the night before, if we hadn't of done this we could not of made the 10:00 check out. We vacation at island park every year for my husbands birthday and did enjoy this cabin as much as any we have rented in the last 5 years- the cabin is lovely with the few exceptions I mentioned. We would recommend the cabin to our friends and family. I would also like to thank Colette for her quick responses to emails and helping me work out the dog sitter problem. Wolf River Ranch is definitely a place to check out and if I had a million dollars I would love to call it my own.... Thanks for the memories and another great vacation in Island Park.

Spectacular Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

This is the most spectacular property we have ever stayed at. From the point you begin entering the driveway to the gorgeous jaw dropping lake view and mountain view in the backyard- the home has been built with much love and thought. We stayed here with our close family for 3 nights for our trip to Yellowstone and we almost didn't want to leave to visit the park ;)

The house is done beautifully and feels quite homey. All the antler accessories and fixtures made for a great topic of conversation. I enjoyed the photo albums-Hi Jon Jacobs!

I would highly recommend this home. You will not be disappointed.

The only cons that i would say were:

1. Trash disposal-which required us to drive out and place it at some dump. I would recommend a big trash bin at the property site.

2. The key pick up and drop off which ate up 30 minutes of our time. If you plan on going back home via 20 West then its on the way, otherwise it could be really annoying. I would recommend the owner have a lock box at the property for retrieval or drop off of the key.

3. Last and definitely NOT a deal breaker. The shower in the basement bathroom could use a cubby to hold soap/shampoo etc. I had to come up with a solution for that-especially for the soap as you can't have lying on the shower pan. Bring your own soap dish.
