Fabulous luxury mountain home
5/5 Stayed Aug 2019

This is an amazing house in the mountains outside of Yellowstone. The house is absolutly beautiful. They recycled lumber from the 1860’s gold rush in such creative, interesting and substantial ways. The rooms are large, comfy and private. We were only two couples but many more would be comfortable.

I can’t even begin to explain how amazing this property was. The pictures do not do it justice. All of Lisa’s recommendations were perfect! We were 10 minutes from Hellsaroarin Horseback riding, which was great, and also 10 minutes from the North Entrance of Yellowstone. We are already planning a date to be able to go back again. Thanks again for the most memorable vacation we have ever taken!!!

Wonderful Yellowstone Stay!

my wife and 8 children loved our time at this house. They went out of the way to do some little things that made it extra special for our family. the house is up a mountain, but worth the switchbacks to get to it. it is a nice and quiet, but still close to the town of Gardiner and the North entrance of Yellowstone. I don’t think you can get much closer without staying inside the park…

This home was amazing!! Rustic but had all necessities. The beds were very comfortable. Just wished we could have spent more time at the house but set out every morning to go into the park. Would love to stay again!!

Roomy property very convenient to Yellowstone. Six adults were able to be comfortable here. You can see the steam rising from Mammoth Hot Springs from here. Highly recommend.

Absolutely loved this rental home. Was perfect for our family of 6, first time at Yellowstone. Was spacious, beautiful hill-side with horses and deer. Was clean, fully stocked kitchen which was very helpful since we cooked all 3 meals. Close to north entrance to the park. Lisa was very helpful and prompt with communication with me. Thank you again!!!

Great cabin with heaps of character just outside Gardiner (and views of mammoth, what!?!?). It was peaceful, beautiful, a great jumping off point for Yellowstone and very convenient to a horseback (Email hidden by Airbnb) munication from the host was awesome and we had a perfect stay with no hitches whatsoever.

Sunny side will exceed all expectations. We enjoyed a 4 day stay on the hillside with views of Yellowstone Park (you can see Mammoth hot springs from the deck). It’s a short drive from Gardiner but far enough away from everything that you feel like you’re off the grid. Peaceful with beautiful views, lots of song birds, and the sounds of bear creek. The house has plenty of space and all the amenities you need. It was also close to a fantastic trail riding outfit in Jardine, called Specimen Creek…Read more

This lodge is super cute, comfy, cozy, roomy, and so close to the entrance to Yellowstone. The beds are super comfy. The views are a bonus. Lisa, the host, is so easy to communicate with and so helpful with tips for fun and recreation. I highly recommend this gem!!

Awesome. We stayed here comfortably with 9 people. I booked it for the group and everyone was impressed. Really beautiful rustic house. Creeks a bit like any log cabin.

The views are beautiful, the house is quiet, the kitchen is great, and there are plenty of beds. It is a wonderful basecamp for all of your adventures into Yellowstone.

The photos are great, but can’t possibly capture the true sense of where you are in the world. Superb space, location, cleanliness and hospitality. Highly recommended!

This cabin is high up in the hills, and so worth the extra drive. A beautiful main floor space, well appointed kitchen, and comfortable beds were just the start. Lisa is a very responsive host, and many thoughtful touches (like games and activity brochures) are evident through the cabin. The kids in our family of 6 enjoyed it as much as they did the park!

We rented this house from Lisa for a week for 5 adults and 2 children. The house has a rustic feel and is very nice. There was enough room for all of us. It is relatively close to Mammoth and the northern entrance to the park. Lisa was prompt in answering me and willingly gave helpful information about the park. It was the first time my grandchildren and son-in-law had been there. We saw many of the attractions as well as a number of animals. I thought it was a very good trip and we had a great…Read more

Sunny Slope Lodge is the place you dream when you think about Montana. You feel like at home, decoration is great and all over nature! We recommande this place to any person who want to discover Montana and Yellowstone. Thank you Lisa for your hospitality.

Sunny Slope Lodge was perfect for our family of 7 ranging in age from 8 to 70. The house is situated 5 miles above Gardiner and the views from the house were amazing! We loved the incredible drive up the mountain where we always encounter a family of Elk. Our favorite moments at the house were in the window seat or on the back porch drinking coffee. The mountain air was so refreshing and we loved watching the wildlife. The kitchen had everything we needed to cook several meals and make picnics…Read more

Sunny Slope Lodge is a beautifully crafted, well kept home in a beautiful and convenient location. Located outside of the north entrance of Yellowstone, it actually feels like you are staying inside the park, as we drove down the hill we see plenty of Elk and a beautiful landscape. We especially appreciated the kid-friendliness of this home, with built-in gates on the stairs and some kids’ supplies available. I enjoyed sitting in the padded bay window with a view. The kitchen had everything we…Read more

This is a really wonderful place. It is located in a very quiet neighborhood, basically a part of nature. In one morning, a small deer came to see us 🙂 The owner was very kind and responding to messages very fast. I can really recommend this place!

If you’re looking for a spectacular cabin that will hold lots of people near Yellowstone, look no further. We just spent four nights here with five adult children plus my 85 year old mother-in-law…eight of us, total. Easy drive from the north entrance or Gardiner. We had plenty of room. Fabulous views. Fully stocked kitchen. We cooked breakfast and dinner at the cabin daily. Three full baths (which we needed for eight people!). Awesome window seat, that consistently had two people on it…Read more

The house is conviniently located 15 mins from the north entrance. It’s far from the hustle and has a nice rustic view. All the amenities are well set including soap towels pleanty of cutlery and dishes as well as basic spices. Lisa was very very helpful and super quick in responding, her great tips helped us plan the trip better. Nothing to not like about. Minor things may be room down stairs May feel a little stuffy, but she has provided plenty of fans in every room to counter that…Read more

Pictures do not do this place justice- great secluded area with lots of space to just relax! We absolutely loved this awesome alternative to the big crowds at Yellowstone!

Amazing stay in Gardiner. Great views. Property is fantastic. Close location to North Entrance of Yellowstone and the town area, but far enough away for privacy. Best of both worlds. Lisa was great. Quick to reply to any questions. Would highly reccomend. Outstanding!

The house is beautiful and spacious and completely met our needs. The rooms are just as described and the lounging areas are great. We didn’t do much cooking, but the kitchen was fully equipped for our needs (and more). There are beautiful views outside big windows; it’s very light and airy. Everything worked well. The house is convenient to Gardiner (10 – 15 minutes up/down the hill) and the entrance to Yellowstone. Lisa was very responsive to questions. Overall a great base from which to…Read more
