Moose Haven is our 2200 square foot, 3 story, 4 bedroom, 2 full bath modernized vacation REAL log home located 7 short miles from West Yellowstone that sits in a deep forested lot ringed by forests, fields, and mountains.
About the home and area....
The surrounding national forest lands provide a quiet setting. The home sleeps up to 8 guests in comfortable beds. We are adjacent to the Gallatin National Forest just a short 10 minute drive from West Yellowstone. There are 4 bedrooms, two large spacious living rooms, a modern kitchen, full washer/dryer facilities. This home is well supplied with anything you might need - linens and towels, a hair dryer, all paper goods, dish washing soaps, hand soaps and shower gel, laundry soap, trash bags and not to forget a great assortment of food staples, herbs and spices. Your experience and comfortability is important to us! Our wonderful log home has all modern amenities one could ever need.
We are immediately adjacent (within 1/4 mile) to the Gallatin National Forest and only 2 miles from lake fishing. Here you'll find Hebgen Lake at the South Fork of the Madison River with a public boat launch and dock for your use.
All of our guests find out very quickly just how handy it is to be very close to all activities; Hiking, mountain biking, rock climbing, bird watching, cross country/nordic skiing, snowmobiling, snow shoeing, and of course Yellowstone National Park, which only 10 minutes away. River rafting on the Gallatin River is a great way to cool down on a hot summer day. Try a full or half day rafting adventure along the lower section of the river with lots of rapids. Horseback riding can be enjoyed at the Diamond P Ranch, located 2 miles from the home. Other outfitters can take your party into the back country of Yellowstone Park, or the surrounding National Forest Service land. We also have a real cowboy rodeo during summer months 5 minutes from the home.
Don't want to drive around? Well then settle back for a BBQ on the spacious outside patio, or build a campfire in the fire pit for a evening of fun. In the mornings head out back with a fresh cup of hot coffee and enjoy moose, deer, a variety of birds, squirrels, marmots, and other wildlife literally wandering around the area.
West Yellowstone is located in the heart of fly-fishing country. Several of the most fabled streams and rivers in the world are within a five to sixty mile radius of the town, including the Madison River, Gallatin River, Yellowstone River, and Henry's Fork of the Snake River. High quality lake fishing is also available on Hebgen Lake and Quake Lake, Henry's Lake and Island Park Reservoir. All are a short drive from the vacation home.
Snowmobiling trails are within 1/4 mile of the home. We are at the foot of Lions Head, Two Top, Madison Loop Trails, and Yellowstone Park or Island Park is a 15 minute ride. With over 500 miles of groomed snowmobile trails outside of Yellowstone National Park, this area is truly a snowmobilers favorite! The area is also home to cross country/nordic skiing. You can XC ski on our world famous Rendezvous Ski Trails groomed ski park, offering over 35 Kilometers of winding groomed trails that meander through the pristine Gallatin National Forest.
Fifty miles north to Big Sky, MT, the best of Rocky Mountain downhill skiing is offered at two different resorts: Big Sky and Moonlight Basin. Snowshoeing is another winter activity you can do right out your front door through the forest!
