Homestead Cabin

Yellowstone Vacation Cabin Rental in Gardiner Montana, The Gateway to Yellowstone National Park

Take a step back in time and imagine yourself as one of the original Homesteaders in the Wild West!

Live like the original settlers did (with a few modern conveniences). Just three miles from Yellowstone Hot Springs! Scenic views from every part of this 13-acre property. Little Trail Creek is 10 feet away from the cabin. Owners horses are on the property.

This is a 2 room rustic cabin. Main room has a table and chairs, hutch & a wood stove. Second room has two queen beds. Directly across the road from the Yellowstone River, this cabin is not for city dwellers. If you are afraid of natures critters, please see the listing for hotels in town. There is a padlock on the door.

A Brand New Bathhouse/Bathroom has been added to the rear of the cabin!

We are trying to preserve the cabin as much as possible. It is approx. 150 yards from the highway but feels like 1,000. Let the kids pan for gold and play in the creek. Our horse pasture is right next to the cabin. Open campfire site for cooking. Pots, pans, plates, utensils, lanterns, candles, bedding and towels all provided! There are outlets in the cabin for phone chargers & such! Hike right from the back yard into the Absaroka Wilderness. Follow the trail up Little Trail Creek.

We are 4 miles into the little town of Gardiner, Montana. 4 miles from Historic Roosevelt Arch - The North Entrance to Yellowstone. 45 mins to Livingston, Montana. 58 miles to Bozeman International Airport.
