    About this property

    Barn on the Banks of Yellowstone National Park

    Riverfront vacation home with kitchen and balcony
    Wow..what a view..love the loft! You may not have been 'Born in a Barn', but here's your chance to stay in one and VACATION 'Till the Cows Come Home'! We invite you to stay in our barn loft and call it your home, while you relax and enjoy our nation's largest and oldest National Park. Barn on the Banks is located just above the Yellowstone river in a quiet residential area on the outskirts of Gardiner, Montana. We are less than 1 mile to the park's North Gate Entrance, famous for the Teddy Roosevelt Arch, and within walking distance to down town shops, restaurants, a grocery store, post office and excellent trout fishing. Yellowstone river runs through this small town that is nestled at the foothills of Electric Peak, a majestic mountain that carries snow throughout most of the year. We are located at the end of a lane with no through traffic. Our loft overlooks the confluence of the Gardiner and Yellowstone rivers, and has unobstructed spectacular views of the mountains. We border the river and we are directly across from Yellowstone Park. A short walk down the bank takes you to the river's edge where you can sit and enjoy nature, including frequent fliers of ducks, geese, bald eagles, and osprey, or possibly see a family of otters playing in the water. From our deck you can view hummingbirds, mountain songbirds, and wildlife including deer, elk, Big Horn sheep, Pronghorn (antelope), or possibly see a bear, wolf, coyote, or bison. One summer while sitting on the deck of the barn, my husband witnessed a doe deer giving birth to twin fawns. We frequently saw mama deer and her little ones close to our house and barn throughout the summer. Now we've seen yet another 'Near Barn Birth'! Over Memorial Weekend, we and our guests witnessed an Elk giving birth just a few feet below the deck of the Barn! This is truly an area you'll be able to experience nature. The barn has never housed animals, the bottom of the barn is used for private storage. The barn loft was renovated in 2008-2009, and features a full kitchen with all new appliances, comfortable seating in the living area, and a large deck that looks into Yellowstone Park. You can sit by the fire on a chilly night, or cool down with air conditioning on a hot summer day. There are amazing views from all areas of the loft made easy by several large windows. The master bedroom has a king bed, private bath, air conditioning, a fireplace and your own private balcony to sit, relax and enjoy the sunset. The cozy 'Queen Room' catches the morning sun, and has the ambiance of a fireplace as well. The 3rd and "middle bedroom'" has one full sized double bed and one twin bed. The sofa in the living room converts to a full size bed. The deck which overlooks Yellowstone Park and the river, features outdoor tables and chairs as well as additional seating and a gas grill under the deck. So come and stay with us, enjoy our 'Barn on the Banks', and make your vacation one you will remember. **NOTE: There is an additional 3% Gardiner Resort Tax that you will be billed separately for if your stay is June through September. - Your Hosts, Ken and Linda.

    5/5 Excellent


      We couldn’t be happier with our stay. It was the perfect location for our adventures! The barn is just lovely, so comfortable and charming. We watched elk and coyotes from the balcony and enjoyed the antics of the bull elk in town. Absolutely recommend and would rent again enthusiastically!

        Wildlife Aplenty

        Had an enjoyable stay. Conveniently located to town and the northern entrance to Yellowstone. As we walked out our second story 3 bedroom apt we were pleasantly surprised by a 8 pt mule deer nibbling on the vegetation. (He was surprised too!). Having a full kitchen and laundry was excellent. We would recommend highly.
