Photos and Description of the West Yellowstone vacation lodge rental

Lodge, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Bath (Sleeps 6 in beds, max 8 in home)

The Otter Lodge occupies one of the most unique locations in the U.S. Its five acres are situated on a family homestead and the property is fronted by Duck Creek and the Duck Creek pond, both of which offer some of the best blue ribbon trout fishing in the West.

The property is less than 1/4 mile from Yellowstone National Park on its east side, and offers easy access (within 1/4 mile) to both Yellowstone Park and Gallatin National Forest.

This home offers breathtaking views of nature at its finest and is in a truly spectacular setting.

Wildlife Viewing: Duck Creek Retreat and the immediate surrounding area is rich in wildlife, including bison, elk, deer, moose, grizzly bear, black bear, otter, beaver, muskrat, Canadian geese, ducks, Trumpeter swan and Sandhill cranes.

Fishing: World class fishing is available on private Duck Creek and Duck Creek Pond. A professionally installed fish ladder permits runs of wild Brown and Rainbow trout from the Madison River and nearby Hebgen Lake. Native Brook trout also inhabit the pond and Brown trout up to 32 inches have been caught and released. A Montana fishing license is not required to fish on the Pond, but it is on other Montana waters. A Yellowstone Park license is required to fish inside the Park.

The west entrance to Yellowstone Park and the town of West Yellowstone are only a short 8.5 mile (14km) drive away, W. Yellowstone offers everything you'd hope to find in a destination resort town, from restaurants, live theater, museums and shopping to equipment rentals and guide services.

We can offer recommendations on a variety of local guides and outfitters - call us to find out more!
