And one of the main snowmobile trail heads starts at the end of the driveway. If you're looking to rent snowmobiles we can arrange for them to be delivered and picked up at...the cabin. So all you have to do is show up and start riding some of the best country in the world.

The two covered porches provide quiet places to enjoy the peaceful surroundings. Forest Edge Cabin is just outside of the town of West Yellowstone, Montana which boasts many restaurants and shops, an Imax Theater, a cinema, seasonal theater and rodeo,the Museum of the Yellowstone, and a visitors center with free presentations by park rangers. The Grizzly and Wolf Discovery Center is home to numerous animals in their natural habitat. SUMMER Just minutes away are recreational opportunities too numerous to mention. In addition to the beautiful scenery and hiking trails, the Madison River has some of the best fly fishing spots in the country. Boating and lake fishing are available on Yellowstone Lake, Hegben Lake, Quake Lake, Henry's Lake, and Island Park Reservoir. You can enjoy river rafting on the Gallatin or Madison Rivers, opting for white water or calmer stretches to better enjoy the scenery. Ziplining is available at several locations as is horseback riding including the Diamond P Ranch just two miles from the front door.

FALL The fall, with its beautiful foliage and cooler temperatures, is a great time to visit Yellowstone. There are fewer visitors to the park making the experience more intimate and serene. Late fall is hunting season with Yellowstone a great point of access for successful elk and deer hunting.

WINTER West Yellowstone and the surrounding area are known for excellent snow conditions. Forest Edge backs up to groomed snowmobile trails in the “snowmobiling capital of the world”. Nearby Island Park, Idaho offers an additional 1,000 miles of trails. Guided tours are also available in the park. For downhill skiers, Big Sky Montana Ski Resort is a beautiful 1 hour drive through Yellowstone. Cross country skiing can be done right outside the door.

SPRING Yellowstone National Park reopens in April, the animals coming out of a long winter slumber with young ones in tow, and the cycle of life begins again.

Perfectly casual

  • 5 of 5

Fancy is not a word used to describe this house. Comfortable, however, is appropriate. The photos are true to form. Most importantly, the house was super clean and everything worked. I would say it is perfectly suited for families. Great location, especially if you want to avoid the West Yellowstone tourist trap town. It is a bit of a hike to take advantage of the zip line and rafting tours. However, perfectly located for horseback riding as there are many options. I would definitely use this place again.

Wonderful house

  • 4 of 5

Enjoyed the house. The location was close to Yellowstone NP. Loved visiting downtown West Yellowstone. Enjoyed visiting Quake Lake. Beds were comfortable but small bedrooms. Internet was slow for more than one device. Nice trail next to the house. Very spacious dining area. Having two laundry areas was great for a large group. Would recommend this house.

Bedrooms are tiny, house is ok

  • 2 of 5

We had a group of 6 adults and 6 kids visiting Yellowstone for 4 days. Besides the Master BR, the bedrooms are so tiny you can barely fit your luggage in there. I had to balance mine on the nightstand and my husband had to put his in the hallway. Also the bedding is very old and doesn't make you feel comfortable sleeping on it. The pillows were super thin and stained. A lot of the lightbulbs were burned out as well so it was dimly lit. The kitchen had all the tools we needed and the bathrooms were updated.

Nice until we had no water (stopped 6:00am, mid shower) and it wasn't fixed until early evening.

  • 2 of 5

First let me say that we had a great time for the first 4 days of our vacation even though when we arrived there, there were not enough towels for everyone, there were wet sheets in the dryer and after calling someone we were told she would bring towels by at 11 the next morning, not very helpful to people who had been on the road for 8 hours. Also when we went to turn the fireplace on we found the pilot light had been turned off and there was a warning posted saying to make sure it was turned to pilot not to off because starting it was very tricky. We never got to use it even though the temperatures reached the low 30's on more than one occasion. The dryer upstairs isn't vented outside so the upstairs will heat up like an oven. Lamps by the bed were broken and patched back together.The DVD machine didn't work, there was a board broken on the staircase wall and the sheets were awful worn. We paid a lot of money per night and I asked for some kind of compensation for our trouble with the water, the owner never even responded. I guess that's the way things are done now.

Owner's Response: I would like to say that we did Apologize for the pressure switch going out on the well pump. Unfortunately things do break we order the new part and had the repairman out there as quickly as possible. We all must remember this is Montana. There are three bath towels per person for up to 12 people so I'm not sure why there were not enough towels? The sheets are brand new this year. If the fireplace was not working a simple phone call and the maintenance man would have gone over and let the pilot. The fireplace is more for decoration there is a gas furnace right by the front door if it happened to be cold in the house not sure why they would not have turned it on. Guests love this home we have put a lot of time and Care into it as you can see by all of our other 5 star ratings.

Cozy and Rustic

  • 4 of 5

Our 2 families stayed three nights here and enjoyed it very much. We only had a couple of minor complaints. The bed linens and pillows were very old and not fresh. Also the wifi is in and out if that is important to you. On the plus side, we were grilling burgers on the back porch the first night and a moose walked through the yard!! I asked 2 questions to the managers Kate and John and were referred to the Internet (which was sketchy!). Overall this is a great location to Yellowstone and a very cozy cabin.
