    Mountain King Cabin Above the Yellowstone River Close to Yellowstone Park

    Romantic cabin in Gardiner with sauna
    The Mountain King Cabin is an amazing place to call home during your visit to Yellowstone Park. Located in the heart of Gardiner, on the banks of the Yellowstone River, it is just a mile from the north entrance to the park. The house faces south looking into the park highlighting stunning views of 11,000 foot Electric Peak. You can literally look out the windows, or off the deck and see: elk, antelope, deer, and occasionally bears and wolves roaming the hillsides of Yellowstone. This rustic Montana log cabin is an inviting, airy open space it's is great for groups 6-8 with a fun loft for the kids! The Mountain King has private river access shared with the raft company for you fishing buffs. Walk down the path and have your line in the water in minutes. This stretch of the Yellowstone is a local secret because there are very few ways to access it. This section is not fished by commercial drift boats, the fishing is exceptional. Stay in this beautiful cabin, AND spend a couple days rafting, horseback riding, and viewing wild life inside Yellowstone. It's easy and all in one place! Large groups can book our neighboring Yellowstone cabins the Eagles Nest and Grizzly Den.....perfect for multi-family vacations! Keywords: Cabin

      Great launch pad for your Yellowstone Adventures

      We arrived late, but had no problems finding or entering the property. I was actually surprised to have 2 bedrooms and a loft, for some reason I thought it was only 1 br plus loft. That was a pleasant surprise for my family of 6. However, with only one bathroom, I don't know if I would try to sleep more in the cabin. It was clean and warm and we quickly settled in for the night. It was very windy that night and the metal cables from the boat ramp next door were clanging outside my bedroom window, but not an issue on subsequent nights. We woke up to 6 inches of snow on the ground. It was nice to be able to walk to the grocery store and pick up some food and supplies in the morning. The kitchen was adequate for prepping/cooking/dining. We ate all all our breakfasts at the house and 2 of 3 dinners. And the view out the sliding glass door was amazing. I am sure we would have enjoyed the deck if it wasn't 10 degrees outside. The pipes froze our 2nd morning, but we were never cold inside the house. We bought a couple of gallons of water at the gas station that morning to get us through, and the owner was very responsive in letting us use the bathroom/water in a neighboring cabin and getting the pipes thawed out while we were at the park that day. The issue barely affected our stay and with some extra heaters and a letting the water drip at night we had no further issues despite the bitter temps. We were there are the tail of the toursit season so some local places were closed or closed early but you have plenty of restaurants and shops with in walking distance. Plus you have plenty of wildlife strolling around down. You are 1 mile from the park entrance and 5 miles from Mammoth Terraces. In our 3 full days we traveled to across to the Lamar Valley, over to the Yellowstone Canyon, and down to Old Faithful and many places in between despite having multiple road closures due to the snow. I am sure it is even easier to see the park when you can actually complete a loop or figure 8. The house is tucked in a narrow alley way. A little hair raising to park when vehicles are on both sides of you, but thank goodness for good back up cameras now a days on vehicles. Overall, a great stay and I would recommend this cabin to large families or two couples traveling with kids. Thanks for the use of the place!

        Two-day Visit to Yellowstone & Gardiner

        The Mountain King Cabin was a great fit for our two couples. The website description & pictures were accurate, the cabin was clean and well stocked in all aspects and owner directions & advice were accurate and appreciated. Four elk grazed between the cabin deck and the river during our first night -- what a treat! The river view and sounds added to our enjoyment, although blustery weather limited our second night deck time. Proximity of neighbors/businesses, sharing of sound due to `thin' walls and just one bathroom were minuses. However, for our limited time at the cabin, these were inconveniences which DID NOT deter from our enjoyment. Being in the `heart' of Gardiner was a plus (W.e could walk.) and the `next door' location to Yellowstone limited travel time to begin each tourist day of the Park.


          Mountain 8 Gardiner

          It was on the river. It had WiFi. The pictures make it look a lot nicer than it is. Wood floors but the wood is not treated to prevent absorption of spills and gaps are filled with whatever is swept into them. Two spiders made a home in creases of bathroom shower curtain... therefore not cleaned very well. Toaster was smudged and covered with handprints.linens and towels were clean though. Love seat in living room seems worn and filthy. Spider webs on deck chairs. Junky neighbor yards with filthy windows. The air conditioner/heating units were very poor. No television unless you stream. It is functional but I wouldn’t stay there again. There is a nice hotel down the road on the river... I’ll stay there next time.

            Gardiner Cabin

            The cabin is as advertised, very clean and fully, nicely furnished. Limited parking (only one vehicle), but we were told of that in advance. The wooden walls are not insulated, so if you have a snorer in one room, I suggest turning on the fan in your room as white noise. Altogether, a comfortable, modern, nice facility and cheaper than the local motels. I would highly recommend staying here.

              Bucket list trip

              Took my 86 year old uncle to Yellowstone while he can still travel. Trip was great. The cabin was beautiful and well located for our needs.
