Unique Authentic Log Home 4 BR, 2 full baths, (Sleeps 4-11)

A Wilderness Cabin Experience

Moose Haven is our 2200 square foot, 3 story, 4 BR, 2 full bath modernized vacation log home located 6 short miles from West Yellowstone that sits in a deep forested lot ringed by forests, fields, and mountains. The surrounding national forest lands provide a quiet setting. The home sleeps up to 11 people comfortably. We are adjacent to the Gallatin National Forest just a short 10 minute drive from West Yellowstone. There are 4 bedrooms, two large spacious living rooms, a modern kitchen, full washer/dryer facilities. This home is well supplied with anything you might need - linens and towels, a hair dryer, all paper goods, dish washing soaps, hand soaps and shower gel, laundry soap, trash bags and not to forget a great assortment of food staples, herbs and spices. Your experience and comfortability is important to us!

We have recently renewed our VRBO site. The last three years we have used Flipkey. On our Flipkey account are over 40 very recent five star reviews to look at. These reviews were garnered over time and VRBO will not support migrating them over. In the photo section are some of our recent reviews.

Our wonderful log home has all modern amenities one could ever need.

Snowmobiling trails are within 1/4 mile of the home. We are at the foot of Lions Head, Two Top, Madison Loop Trails, and Yellowstone Park or Island Park is a 15 minute ride. With over 500 miles of groomed snowmobile trails outside of Yellowstone National Park, this area is truly a snowmobilers favorite! The area is also home to cross country/nordic skiing. You can ski on our world famous Rendezvous Ski Trails groomed ski park, offering over 35 Kilometers of winding groomed trails that meander through the pristine Gallatin National Forest. Fifty miles north to Big Sky, MT, the best of Rocky Mountain downhill skiing is offered at two different resorts: Big Sky and Moonlight Basin. Snowshoeing is another winter activity you can do right out your front door through the forest!

West Yellowstone is located in the heart of fly-fishing country. Several of the most fabled streams and rivers in the world are within a five to sixty mile radius of the town, including the Madison River, Gallatin River, Yellowstone River, and Henry's Fork of the Snake River. High quality lake fishing is also available on Hebgen Lake and Quake Lake, Henry's Lake and Island Park Reservoir. All are a short drive from the vacation home.

We are immediately adjacent (within 1/4 mile) to the Gallatin National Forest and only 2 miles from lake fishing. Here you'll find Hebgen Lake at the South Fork of the Madison River with a public boat launch and dock for your use.

All of our guests find out very quickly just how handy it is to be very close to all activities; Hiking, mountain biking, rock climbing, bird watching, cross country/nordic skiing, snowmobiling, snow shoeing, and of course Yellowstone National Park, which only 10 minutes away. River rafting on the Gallatin River is a great way to cool down on a hot summer day. Try a full or half day rafting adventure along the lower section of the river with lots of rapids. Horseback riding can be enjoyed at the Diamond P Ranch, located 2 miles from the home. Other outfitters can take your party into the back country of Yellowstone Park, or the surrounding National Forest Service land

Don't want to drive around? Well then settle back for a BBQ on the spacious outside patio, or build a campfire in the fire pit for a evening of fun. In the mornings head out back with a fresh cup of hot coffee and enjoy moose, deer, a variety of birds, squirrels, marmots, and other wildlife literally wandering around the area

About Cameron Phillips

We have spent our lifetimes living and raising our four children, now 10 grandkids in Yellowstone Country. We love to hike Yellowstone Park, we are major fly fishing, skiing and cycling nuts, we love just sitting in the pines, taking the grandkids on nature walks, and provide a destination for our children.

Cameron Phillips purchased this cabin in 2003

Why Cameron Phillips chose West Yellowstone

We chose Moose Haven because of the very close location to Yellowstone Park (7 miles), the area fishing, and yet because the home is located in the forest you still think your far, far away from civilization.

My wife has been in this area since she was 3, I started going there 40+ years ago, it has always been a dream to be there. During other times of the year we down in So Cal enjoying sunshine, during July we work in France for the Tour De France bike race, getting to ride bikes is our work each summer!

What makes this cabin unique

A real benefit staying in our that it is just that...'our home', it is not a shell rental unit, but is a rich, comfortable, very well appointed home with everything you need.

We are 10 minutes from West Yellowstone, and YNP west gate. The town has all amenities with good restaurants and grocery stores. We are within 45 minutes of the best fishing waters in the US, if not the world. Lake Hebgen is a large lake 5 minutes away, horseback outfitters 5 minutes away, 90 miles to the south is Jackson Hole and the Grand Teton Park.

We like the bakery and coffee shops in town, and much more.

One of our favorite activities, is to simply have a nice lunch on the back deck, do some reading and listen to the wind through the tall pines and then nap....yes NAP!

It is a must do experience!

Perfect Winter Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Ample room for two families and more. With a full bath and living room downstairs including a second fireplace and TV, this cozy cabin was ideally laid out for our families to set up camp. All the amenities were great and such a beautiful cooks kitchen and communal dining table to gather around. The cold entry was great for storing snow shoes, skies, boots, coolers, etc. Showshoeing and snowmobiling out the front door. A short drive, 5-10min, into west yellowstone for great pizza and cheap snowmobile rentals. Access to the snowmobile trails was quick and we were at the two-tops loop within 15min. The kids (ages 5-8) and parents all had a great time. Thank you to Moose Haven for the wonderful winter vacation!

Cozy cabin stay nestled in the woods

  • 5 of 5

This fantastic cabin nestled in the woods provided us with such a great getaway experience. Snowshoeing out the front door and exploring the area around, while being just a quick car ride into West Yellowstone where we were able to take advantage of what they had to offer. The cabin itself, has a fully stocked kitchen (not what I've experienced at other rentals) and plenty of space for a group to spread out or be cozy watching a movie in the living room. I can only imagine what this gem has to offer in the other seasons. Thank you for letting us stay - look forward to another visit!

The Spuhler Family

Had another amazing stay at the Moose-haven cabin. We look forward to our stay here every year. We went for snowshoe around the cabin and were able to park the Snowmobile right out front and a few minutes sled and you have access to all the trails into town and more. Love this cabin and all it has to offer.

Loved our stay at Moose Haven. Felt like home right from the start. Our group of 6 adults were very comfortable there. The owner was extremely helpful and very easy to work with - he even called us while we were there to check in on us. He hooked us up with a snowmobile rental guy who brought the sleds right to the cabin and picked them up when we were finished. Highly recommend Moose Haven. We will be back.

Great winter get-away

  • 5 of 5

Our family made some great memories at moose Haven. Even though the temperatures were 36 below zero, it was still warm inside. Very close to Yellowstone and to some great snowmobile trails. We had 8 in our party and it was just the right size. Owner was great to work with.

Moose Haven

  • 5 of 5

A couple buddies and I stayed at the Moose Haven cabin for our annual fall fishing trip in/near Yellowstone. The owner, Cameron, was extremely helpful and communicative, even going so far as to provide us some stellar fishing advice and likely exposing one of his honey holes on the Madison River! That alone is prized customer service! The cabin was very clean, contemporary and well-maintained. We had everything we needed and will absolutely look into staying there again.
