Mountain View Getaway

Bedrooms 1
Property type cabin
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

Barn/cabin, 1 Private Bedroom + 1 Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

Be prepared for a breathtaking view of the upper Yellowstone river basin aptly named Paradise Valley! This second floor cabin is perfect for watching deer, antelope and coyotes move about on the nearby hills. It's easy to spot an eagle soaring as well as other raptors as they search for their dinner. Emigrant Peak is framed by the living room window where you can sit and relax after an adventurous day in nearby Yellowstone National Park. The cabin's theme is wildlife: moose, deer, bighorn sheep and bison adorn the walls and linens. The large private bedroom has a queen-size bed and huge closet and the living room couch easily folds out into a comfy queen size sleeper. The full kitchen and bath have everything you need to make your stay feel just like home, including a washer and dryer. The cabin originally built as a barn never housed any animals; instead, the first floor is used as a library/office but only when there are no guests. Most guests enjoy the cozy feel of the cabin and extra special personal touches provided by these owners who will do everything possible to please their guests! You won't be disappointed.

Once you settle in, take a stroll a few feet away and dip your feet into 8 Mile Creek on the property or set up a chair to take in the full beauty of the valley. A private, sheltered barbeque and outdoor dining area gives you views of the mountains surrounding the property where you can share memories of the day's events or enjoy the amazing night sky.

The biggest attraction, Yellowstone National Park is a beautiful 34-mile drive from the cabin. The drive follows the Yellowstone River and places you at Roosevelt Arch, the northwest entrance into Yellowstone National Park. While traveling, you will likely see more wildlife not to mention the majestic peaks of the Absaroka/Beartooth mountain range to the east and the Gallatin range to the west.

Within 5 miles of the cabin is Chico Hot Springs, which is a year-round resort with two hot springs pools, an exquisite dining room and a family friendly grille. At night, the Saloon hosts various local bands featuring a mixture of genre to satisfy your musical choice. Yellowstone River, a short mile away, boasts some of the best fishing for rainbow trout. Or, if you like, you can float the river either by boat, raft or tube! The mountains in Paradise Valley have numerous hiking trails -- but don't forget your bear spray! Paradise Valley offers many adventures and Mountain View Getaway is located right in the middle of all it has to offer. Paradise awaits!

About Melody Yoes

My husband and I are Louisiana born and spent our entire lives vacationing each summer to Yellowstone and the Tetons. We have five sons, now grown and married, and we are blessed with ten grandchildren! Our dream for retirement was to move to this area and we are now living that dream. We are eager to welcome others to the beauty and serenity we found in this special location in Paradise and have outfitted this rental just for this purpose. It is filled with animal photographs taken by us and rustic, western decor that we hope will make anyone's stay superb! Welcome to Paradise for a vacation you are sure to remember for years to come! The picture above is of four of our grandchildren playing in 8-mile creek behind out house.

Lovely secluded property with beautiful mountain vistas from the den. Newly built and gorgeous interior with wood floors, all brand new appliances, cabinets, countertops and furniture for the western look. The den view is simply one-of-a-kind and provides a wonderful way to relax in the evening and enjoy remembering the events of the day or just watching TV or watching the beautiful night sky. Little light pollution so this is a great plus. Cozy, comfortable and truly a 'getaway.' Owners respect your privacy and the cabin is 150 yards from their house and has no windows that face their house. They are available if you need anything but do not disturb you unless you want to visit with them. They are eager to interact to answer any questions you may have or help in any way they can, but only at your request. Their extensive traveling in and around the area provide a wealth of information.

Wonderful place to stay when visiting Yellowstone!

  • 5 of 5

Me and my fiancé stayed here in September of 2013 for five nights while visiting Yellowstone. We absolutely LOVED this cabin! It was homey, private, clean and the views are absolutely AMAZING! Exactly how the pictures show! The whole booking process was extremely easy and laid back and all of our needs were met. This trip was particularly special to me because my fiancé proposed to me in Yellowstone, so I will never forget our trip to Yellowstone or our stay at Mountain View Getaway. I definitely want to stay here again if we ever get to come back!

Outstanding Stay

  • 5 of 5

A perfect getaway, a perfect place to stay, and perfect hosts. We had everything we needed and most importantly it was the perfect location to take part in and visit many local attractions. How wonderful to wake up and watch antelope grazing in the fields across the road.

Needs cutting board in kitchrn

  • Review Submitted: 22/08/2017
  • Date of Stay: August 2017
  • Source: VRBO, from HomeAway
Owner's Response: There is a cutting board in kitchen. It folds in three and possibly was not recognized as one. It even has a lip that directs the chopped foods so as not to spill when they are transferred to a skillet. If our guest had asked we could have directed him to exactly where it was.

Yellowstone National Park (NW entrance) is 30 minutes south where you can hike, view wildlife, participate in Ranger led events or simply tour this national treasure. In winter, snowshoeing or cross-country skiing is a wonderful way to enjoy the park. You will see bear, bison, bighorn sheep, mountain goats, coyotes, eagles, possibly wolves, and if you are lucky, moose. Fantastic caverns are Lewis and Clark caverns about an hour or so away. There are beautiful vistas everywhere. Chicot Hot Springs is a 5-star restaurant and old western building with lots of weekend entertainment, and activities daily including well-known hot springs/spa, dog sledding in winter, horse riding in summer, as well as wedding destination. Three hours away is the little town of West Yellowstone with IMAX, enclosed grizzly and wolf habitat and learning center that both adults and children will love, historical museum, and snowmobiling in winter. This is the quaint little western town where the western entrance into YNP is located (near Old Faithful). The drive outside the park to West Yellowstone is alongside the beautiful Gallatin River, also a fishing lure for fly fishermen! There is no absence of activities to enjoy and the beauty of nature surrounds you.
