The snow in Island Park is huge! We rode all day, then had a lot of family fun back at the cabin. Two thumbs up!

What a beautiful 'cabin', more like mansion! Stayed here a week during July. Weather was warm. We rafted Henry's fork of the Snake River. It was so fun! The beauty of nature surrounding this cabin is fantastic! We saw moose, osprey, and hawks. We hiked all over the area near the cabin, downto the river, and lake. We took a short drive to see incredible waterfalls and another day, took the short 30 minute drive into Yellowstone National Park. Everything we could imagine and possibly need was provided in the cabin, except for food of course. One of the weekends there was a craft fair of local artists. Great nature paintings and crafts of many kinds, prices were very reasonable. You should stay here and visit, you won't be disappointed. Thanks for letting us stay and use your beautiful home!

Thanks Tom for Getting us in the same day we called!! We had a great time Riding the snow was great and sure was nice having the hot tub after a long day of riding:) Thanks Again JEFF H Can't Wait to come back

My brothers and I wanted to provide a place for all of our families to be together to help our parents celebrate 50 years of marriage. The cabin was our perfect choice. The moment we arrived we felt right at home. There was plenty of room for our party of 14 people. We laughed and created memories that will last a lifetime. Thank you so much Tom for this gift that will be in our hearts for good.

We arrived late at night and Tom was so kind to provide detailed instructions to help us get to our destination. The cabin was spacious and the night time sky was so attractive. Two thumbs up!

We had so much fun here! The cabin was very comfortable and it felt like home. Plenty of room, good layout for bedrooms and main areas. We enjoyed having plenty of towels and dishes to accommodate the clan. The decor was so rustic and artsy too - really liked it. All had fun in the hot tub.
Thanks for providing a great place for us to enjoy the area of fishing, hiking and West Yellowstone.
A keeper for our next trip to the area!

 Our trip to Island Park was for a reunion of long time friends.  The first evening we arrived an awesome thunderstorm blew through from over the mountains afterwards leaving a spectacular view of a double rainbow.

The"5 Ladies" thoroughly enjoyed the cabin setting, the awe of the extreme diverse natural wonders unique to the area, as well as water rafting, seeing the historic sites, and last but not least YELLOWSTONE. The cabin was perfect for our rest and relaxation between adventures.  Thank you for having very comfy beds, plenty of towels, and the convenience of a washer and dryer.  Also, the kitchen was equipped with good pots and pans, plenty of silverware, and an assortment of spices. 

Thank you for sharing this surreal vacation experience.


We had everything we needed for a relaxing and stress free stay.  Communication with the owner was great!  Plenty of linens, dishes, seating... for 15 people.  Very clean!!

We used this as our homebase for going into yellowstone.  The drive to the park entrance was just over 30 minutes and worked out very well.
