About the property

Great for large family gatherings or multi-family groups.

This rustic home is located on the edge of town within walking and/or driving distance of the main streets, entertainment, shops, and restaurants of West Yellowstone. By car, it is less than five minutes to the West Entrance of Yellowstone National Park and only fifteen minutes away from the beautiful Hebgen Lake. In the snowmobiling season, the house sits immediately adjacent to the start of several prominent trails including rides to the famous Mount Two Top area. The large Great Room looks out over a vast field to Mount Two Top and the mountain ranges to the west which provides amazing sunset views. The home is decorated with an assortment of Native American and Western artifacts and artwork.

This inviting home offers 3,400 square feet of living area on three levels along with an oversize (28' x 25') double garage. The main floor entry leads into a large open floor plan living room and dining area with high vaulted ceilings. The living room offers comfortable seating, a gas fireplace and a large TV. The dining room table will easily accomodate twelve guests. Adjacent to this Great Room is a large kitchen which holds another dining table and provides direct access to the garage. This floor also includes a laundry room and 1/2 bath for guest convenience.

Those wishing to cook at the house will find a large kitchen that offers plentiful storage and an assortment of dishware, utensils, and cookware suitable for the large groups this house handles with ease. The kitchen table comfortably seats six.

Also off the main level is an exterior deck with built-in seating and a large table. The trees surrounding this deck are visited by a wide variety of native and migratory birds which frequent the area throughout the seasons.

The second level balcony looks down into the Great Room and includes an office niche equipped with a computer and printer. This level offers three guest bedrooms including a large Master suite, which sleeps two, and includes a private bathroom. Guest Room #1 has one queen bed and one full size bed, sleeping four guests. Guest Room #2 has two twin beds and a loft with two full size futons, sleeping up to six guests. The loft is often a favorite escape for the younger generation, but is to be used at your own risk since access is provided by a steep, log ladder. The two guest rooms share a large bathroom.

The lower level, which is entered from the garage, houses a den, a game room with a pool table, a bedroom and a full bathroom. The den is equipped with a large TV with DirecTV and Netflix service as well as Blu-ray, DVD and VHS players. The game room includes a queen-size sleeper sofa that sleeps two. Guest Bedroom #3 sleeps two in a queen size bed and is located off the far end of the game room.

Please note that there is generally a (3) night minimum stay required although shorter stays may be considered upon request.

Nice cabin, great location!

  • 5 of 5

We visited from Florida for a winter wonderland getaway during the holidays. It was great having a big garage with all of the fresh snow, and we were able to park our snowmobiles right in the driveway. We were able to snowmobile the local trails, ski and snowboard at Big Sky, do a snow cat tour of Yellowstone, visit the Grizzy and Wolf Discovery Center, go sledding in the city park, and pop over to Idaho to photograph Big Horn Sheep, all from a great central location in West Yellowstone. It was fantastic to see the bison, elk, coyotes, eagles, swans, ducks, loons, mule deer, etc. in the park with a few feet of fresh powder on the ground, and the geothermal features are even more amazing during the winter. It was also nice to come home after a long day in the snow and sit around the fireplace to warm up. The kids stayed entertained in the evenings with the pool table, wifi, and satellite TV. Would definitely recommend to others.

Stayed here for the past 4 years, looking to continue doing so in the future. Great for multiple families or groups, house has many areas for different activities: board games, movies, etc. Kitchen is large and has everything you'd need for a week of cooking in. Quiet location on the edge of town.

What more could you ask for!

Perfect house that fit all our needs!

We just got back from a wonderful weekend in West Yellowstone. This house was absolutely perfect for our stay! It had everything we needed. We had three generations there from 2 years old and up and it was perfect for everyone. It was well stocked and in great condition. The owner was great to work with and it was very clear what was expected and answered any questions we had. I would easily recommend this house to anyone staying in the area!!!

This house is terrific and the location couldn't be better. We had a very large family stay at this location September 16-20 2016 and had a fabulous time. The house is very accommodating for large families and has everything you need. It is very close to Main Street with easy access to YNP. The house was very clean and we loved all of the Native American decorations. Mark was great to deal with and always responded promptly with any questions I had. We also saw a fox in the front yard walking around one evening.

If you plan on coming to West Yellowstone I highly recommend this house, you won't be disappointed.

Thanks for sharing your house with us Mark

great place for family stay!

This cabin was a great place for 8 adults and 1 baby! The basement is a separate area the baby and parents were able to stay in without being disrupted by the other adults. Very close to Yellowstone park. The town of West Yellowstone is very cute with places to check out!
