Overview

About the property

2 Bedroom, 1 Bath, Sleeps 6+, Nice Kitchen, Covered Deck, Amazing Mountain Views

Yellowstone Cabin Rental On Private Acreage Five Miles From The Park's North Gate And Best Wildlife Watching And Cutthroat Trout Fishing!

Charming cabin built in 2009 with two bedrooms that sleeps 5-6 located just five minutes from Yellowstone Park's North Entrance on 26 acres of private property. Perfect for travelers who want easy access to the famous Northern Range and Lamar Valley with its bison, elk, deer, wolves, bears, AND fishing for world-famous Yellowstone cutthroat trout!

This beautiful cabin is unlike all other vacation rental properties in the area. Lying in an extremely private location just above Highway 89 north of Gardiner, Montana, and the Roosevelt Arch, the cabin is easily accessed by a well-maintained, short, 300 yard-long Private Drive.

This setting provides you with total solitude and isolation from any hustle and bustle of the busy roadways leading to/from the park. However, at the same time, when needed, you are just minutes away from restaurants, the market, and shops in Gardiner or a bit further away in Livingston and Bozeman.

Built on a log frame, this cabin has all modern amenities yet has a great amount of rustic appeal including beautiful hardwood floors. It has enormous windows giving you unmatched views of Yellowstone's Electric Peak, Devil's Slide, Dome Mountain, and many other spectacular geological features. Wildlife abound here and deer, elk, pronghorn antelope, bighorn sheep, or bison are seen on the meadows and mountain slopes near the cabin. Often during the spring and fall, they are standing right in the cabin's yard. No-where else in the northern Rockies will you find wildlife this abundant and close in a natural setting.

Horses graze nearby, and the Yellowstone River, home to world-class trout fishing, leaves the park and passes just a few hundred yards below you.

There are many access sites to the Yellowstone River very near to the cabin, one within easy walking distance (that is a very great fishing spot...just ask our boys!).

Being near Gardiner, our cabin is at the home of the Yellowstone Association, a long-standing educational institute offering numerous courses in the park. The Electric Peak Cabin is a perfect place to stay when visiting and attending these courses.

About Todd Koel

We are a family of six including four young boys who love the Greater Yellowstone Area.

Todd has a Ph.D. in Zoology and works professionally to preserve the native animals here, especially Yellowstone cutthroat trout and the ecosystem they support!

Todd Koel purchased this cabin in 2009

Why Todd Koel chose Gardiner

We have built this cabin here because Yellowstone Park is the greatest place on the face of the planet. We want to provide an opportunity for visitors to relax and share in the Yellowstone experience.

The Yellowstone River and great fishing are within walking distance of the cabin door. Also the Yellowstone Association and all its educational opportunities are found right near our place at Gardiner.

This is our home and we love it. Come on out here and stay for awhile!

Guestbook comments from the manager

We visited Yellowstone for one week on our 6-month journey from the Netherlands. We had a very pleasant stay. Unfortunately many of the roads in Yellowstone were still closed, however we visited Mammoth Hot Springs, Lamar Valley, and Tower Falls. We went swimming in the Boiling River (recommended!)and we saw lots and lots of wildlife: hundreds of bison and elk, pronghorn, deer, coyotes, bighorn sheep. We missed out on the bears. We also enjoyed the wildlife around the cabin.



Thanks alot for everything, and to you Justin, Aaron, Ryan, and Tyler for letting us use your bikes!!



Thursday we are leaving for West Glacier (thanks Tod for the route info). A few months in Canada before going back home in July.

Perfect spot for relaxing

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for three nights and didn't want to leave. It was the perfect setting for a calm and relaxing vacation. The views from the cabin are breathtaking and the cabin had everything we needed. We saw so many elk, deer, pronghorn and bison all around the property. The drive to yellowstone is only about 5 minutes and the market in town has everything you might need. Can't wait to stay here again

Better than expected.

Great clean cabin with all the amenities. Close to the road and park, but tucked in. More animals here than in the park. Great hiking trail nearby.

Beautiful, comfortable cabin with amazing views close to Yellowstone.

  • 5 of 5

Perfectly located close to the park, Gardiner and Paradise Valley. The cabin is well stocked with everything a family would need. Lots of wildlife right outside the door. We saw lots of elk, bighorn sheep, deer and a herd of bison across the river. We really enjoyed the fire pit for making s’mores and the views from the front porch were incredible!

Thank you Todd!

we loved the place and will certainly come again

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is exactly like in the pictures. Very romantic, very comfortable. The views are incredible. We saw more elks near the property than in Yellowstone itself. Highly recommended. The owner was available on the phone and helped with everything that we needed.

The cabin had everything we needed for cooking. We are vegans and foodies, so we used the kitchen quite extensively. The peeler can be replaced /sharpened, but this was the only minor problem we had.

Perfect place for our amazing vacation!

We loved this cabin in every way. The views were incredible, the house was fully stocked and the neighborhood was quiet and calm. We spent part of every day in Yellowstone and were able to enjoy the trails in Paradise Valley as well. We'll be back soon!
