Overview

Photos and Description of the Gardiner vacation cabin rental

Cabin, 4 Bedrooms + Sunroom, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 10)

Winner of the 2010 Historic Restoration Award from the Montana Historical Alliance , this rare 2 story hand-hewn square log cabin was built in 1907. Austrians used Broad Axes to fashion unbelievable 'compound' dovetail corners locking the logs in place for over 100 years.

The address of the cabin is: 25 Papesh Road, Gardiner, Montana if you want to Google Map it's location.

It is a short 5 MINUTE drive to the North Entrance of Yellowstone Park.

The cabin sits on 42 quiet acres once called 'The Little Trail Creek Ranch.' It once fed tourists in Yellowstone Park. It is only 4 miles north of Gardiner,Montana and the north entrance to Yellowstone. The cabin is not visible from the highway, and has lots of grass, trees and water. Out front sit the mountains of Yellowstone Park and the Yellowstone River. In the back is the Absaroka Wilderness. The old tree stumps that built the cabin are still visible up the cliffs behind the house.

Herds of Elk, Bison,Deer and Bighorn Sheep use our land all year due to the trees and open water from abundant springs.

We like to go to 'The Boiling River' - one of the best natural hot springs in the world! We were married there 26 years ago, and still go with the kids whenever we can. It is only 7 miles from our door, and it's free once inside Yellowstone Park. The spring is closed May and part of June due to high water, but Chico Hot Springs is 22 miles north, and it has wonderful food. On Sunday, you can eat the brunch and swim for free.

For 13 years we fixed up the cabin. It was fun. There are all new appliances, a 6 burner stove with convection oven, new electric and plumbing, and heating. We used antiques and old wood salvaged from train stations and hotels where needed. The old wood in the cabin has a certain 'glow' that comes from age.

During the renovation, I found many items I put into the chinking. Pocket watches, coins, buttons, even a gun--and 3 bullets in the logs [all at waist high level].

There is a steam shower for use in winter. A 4000 pound Tulikivi wood stove [for use only in winter] uses radiant heat to warm the cabin. It is made of soapstone, which will stay warm a full 2 days after a fire.

There is one bedroom downstairs, and 3 upstairs. A double bed is in the sun room, and the couch downstairs in the Tulikivi room is oddly comfortable for sleeping.

So, if you appreciate the Real Deal -- with history, wildlife, quiet and nature-- welcome to our cabin. You'll find our circle of trees cool and refreshing even on the hottest day.

Hot Springs!! My wife and I went to the Boiling River on our wedding day, 30 years ago... and we still go every chance we can. The Boiling River is the highest flow natural hot springs in the USA... one of the best in the world! Closed due to high water May and part of June. Don't miss it... bring your swim suit.

Chico Hot Springs is a historic spa, with great food. Go on Sunday for the morning brunch-- and swim for free.

Notes:
Enclosed steam shower in first floor bathroom, No Land line Phone--- your cell phone should work. WiFi Internet. Free natural hot spring, Boiling River, 7 miles away in Yellowstone Park [it is only 1/4 mile walk from unmarked parking lot] Chico Hot Spring 22 miles north. We have 42 acres to explore, old barn and sheds, an easy walk down to the Yellowstone River and fishing too , lots of wild animals. Yellowstone river has public access for fisherman and rafting 2 miles away... the river flows across the road from our land. Yellowstone park is very close, the entrance is 4 miles drive from here. It is a very easy drive to town --3.6miles-- for grocery, restaurants, shops if you want them. You will save lots of money cooking at home. 2 miles north of cabin and outside town is The Lighthouse Restaurant - cheaper,better, and BYOB.
