Photos and Description of the Gardiner vacation cottage rental

Studio, 1 bathroom, with peaceful yard.

Our sweet backyard cottage is nestled among the fruit and flower trees of the yard. It is easily within walking distance to the grocery store, coffee, shopping, restaurants, post office, and local arch park events. It is at the north entrance to Yellowstone Park, as is all of Gardiner. The cottage is in the heart of town and also shielded from the main street by the owners' home. The yard is shared with the owners but privacy is afforded by the trees. The owners' home was built in 1930 and its cottage was built in the 1940s by former owners, the Eastons. It is believed that their intent was to rent the cottage to visitors of Yellowstone, making it a very early vacation rental in this town. The cottage is a perfect fit for two people who want to day trip to northern Yellowstone, book local activities like rafting, biking, horseback riding, and return to a comfortable environment to relax. Our guests note that the well cultivated green and floral landscaping add to the charm and character of their experience. The stucco cottage still has the details of its early history with the old style door knobs and kitchen cabinets, and offers a comfortable queen bed, dining area, kitchen, and full bathroom. It is clean, well cared for, and you are welcome!

We keep our reservation calendar updated to the minute and our description on this page accurate.
