About the property

New 3 bed 3 bath log home

New to the Yellowstone rental market, this hand built log home was completed June 1, 2015. The three bedrooms include one queen bed in the main floor master bedroom, two twin beds in the second floor bedroom, and king plus twin bed in the very spacious basement bedroom. Also, a full futon is located in the basement family room. There are three full bathrooms, two on the main floor and one in the basement. I have two other fully booked cabins on the property with over sixty 5 star reviews. All of them are authentic. No reviews were ever solicited. I keep my cabins incredibly clean. We use professional steam cleaning for amazing chemical free results. My sheets and towels are the best in the area.

About Justin Gale

My full time job is to rent these cabins and make my customers enjoy their stay while visiting Yellowstone. I've lived in the area for 15 years.

Justin Gale purchased this cabin in 2001

Why Justin Gale chose West Yellowstone

I fell in love with the two cabins which were original to the property. Montana and Yellowstone go hand in hand with authentic log cabins. After painstakingly restoring the two original cabins and having lots of success renting them through HomeAway, my goal was to build a new cabin, but in the same style as my older authentic ones. The result, an incredible new home with all the feel of the original.

What makes this cabin unique

There is nothing like a real log cabin. My cabins are warm and cozy, well thought out, and truly authentic. Plus, the cabins are located in town just seven blocks from the West Gate of the Park. Most visitors underestimate the amount of driving that's needed when visiting Yellowstone so its nice to have good lodging right outside of the Park. We also have two other log homes on site. Visit HomeAway #368433 and VRBO #159960.

Nice new cabin!

  • 5 of 5

We liked the property a lot. Excellent location, owner/manager was handy for any problems, plenty of off-street parking and plenty of room in the cabin. The cabin is new so everything is in good shape. The beds were particularly comfortable. Would stay there again. Be sure to say hello to Marley (owners Gorden Setter).

Beyond our expectations

  • 5 of 5

A spur of the moment trip to West Yellowstone and we were extremely lucky to stumble across the gorgeous cabin. Justin was an extremely attentive host who answered all our needs instantly. It was clean, comfortable, quiet and warm and we really enjoyed our stay. Thank you Justin.

OMG- we loved this place :-) Tons of room for everyone! Loved the parking for our trailer and sleds and big bonus it was right by the big field so my 7 ur old could go for a quick ride on her z120. We used the grill several times and the laundry facility was great. Justin was very accommodating and saw him out a few times clearing snow at the cabins. We can’t wait to book again in 2 years! Wish I could post pics for this review - I set up a mini snowman tree in the basement where there is a small living area and my kids still had the perfect Christmas :-)))) The cabin was over all very homey and welcoming after riding all day. Hated we had to leave- it’s beautiful. Highly recommended!!! The Wimmers from Indiana- Andrea, Brian, Chance, Clay, Breanna, & Denise

Spacious house 10 minutes from West Entrance

  • 5 of 5

The house is very close to Yellowstone west entrance with gas,grocery and restaurants just a few minutes walk away. Very clean, fully furnished and well maintained, the house is perfect for for 2-3 families.

Kitchen is well stocked with pots,pans, cutlery, dinner sets, dishwasher I recommend to buy own supplies of salt,sugar, oil and grocery if you are planning to cook. There is good internet connection and TV, also a grill outdoors. Bathrooms are clean and big, toiletries and towels provided. The washer dryer is outside in a common laundry space.

The basement room and bathroom is very spacious - only issue the bedroom does not have a door. Its downstairs, so does not interrupt with privacy much. The living room, kitchen and second bedroom in ground floor is spacious as well. There is one more room with two single beds in the loft. The house is perfect for long stays. The owners were really helpful and prompt to reply to messages.

Nice comfortable stay, with responsive owner

  • 4 of 5

The cabin looks small, but is very spacious, comfortably sleeps 7-8, very clean and equipped with all necessities. Justin, the owner is very responsive and attended to our needs like portable heater and increasing the temperature of the water. The cabin has 3 bathrooms which is very convenient.
