This three bedroom, two-bath vacation home in the Paradise Valley literally looks out over the Yellowstone River and is a short thirty-minute drive from Yellowstone National Park. Guests can walk out the door and go fishing or floating right from the house at the private Yellowstone River access.

This cozy, immaculate vacation home is offered year round for your river and mountain getaway retreat or family vacation and offers you all the comforts and conveniences you will want in a most gorgeous Yellowstone River setting in a small neighborhood of homes in the Paradise Valley. The home has a tasteful, cozy western style with beautiful wood and tile floors, unique artwork and custom handmade log furniture to enjoy.

The three cozy bedrooms all with outstanding mountain views can accommodate up to eight guests. The master bedroom is downstairs, with a queen size log bed, and a full bath with shower. The spiral staircase leads you to two more bedrooms upstairs. The upper floor consists of one bedroom with a queen size log bed, and another bedroom with a log frame bunk bed. A full bath upstairs is shared by these two bedrooms. If you happen to need one, you'll even find a playpen/crib in one of the bedrooms. In addition, two portable adult size twin mattresses with bedding are available for extra people.

The complete kitchen, with dishwasher, range, microwave and all the cookware is open to the dining area and living room. The dining room table will seat six, or head on out to the deck and enjoy your meal while savoring the river view.

Relaxing will come easy on the Yellowstone Riverside deck. There you can hear the mighty river sweeping by, notice the sudden flip of a trout's tail, watch a bald eagle perched in the Cottonwood trees across the river and see drift boats, kayaks, canoes and rafts float by. You'll find a comfortable patio set and gas BBQ grill along with a bench and hooks to hang your fishing waders. On the other side of the house, you'll find a covered deck with a small table and chairs to enjoy your morning coffee while enjoying an unobstructed view of the gorgeous Absaroka Mountains.

In the vaulted living room, you'll find cozy and comfortable furniture, a television with satellite service, and a gas fired woodstove -- everything you could need! Large windows offer spectacular views of the Yellowstone River, waterfowl, bald eagles and the surrounding mountains.

In your free time, you'll find a large selection of videos to enjoy, a cd/tape player sound system, as well as a variety of games and books. Or, take the short walk to the Yellowstone River down your own private path to enjoy the view of your private river frontage from a secluded bench right on the river's edge.

Many guests use Yellowstone Lookout North as a 'base' from which to explore the entire area--all of Yellowstone, Grand Teton Park, the incredible Beartooth Highway and the communities around Bozeman and Livingston Montana.

No smoking is allowed in the home. No pets are allowed on the property or in the home without prior written approval. There is a private phone, television with satellite service and VCR, and laundry facilities including washer/dryer, iron, ironing board and detergent at this home. You'll also find a fully equipped kitchen, high quality kitchen, bath and bed linens, and staples like paper goods, dish and hand soaps.

An end of stay cleaning is complimentary. If you happen to be staying two weeks or more, a weekly cleaning will be done. Additional housekeeping, as well as catering, and grocery shopping can be arranged with a bit of prior notice.

Check out our great Yellowstone Lookout rates for Fall, Winter and Spring visits to the Yellowstone area! All seasons offer a lot of things for Yellowstone Lookout guests to experience. .Fall--With Fall approaching and the days getting shorter, the fall colors on the many cottonwoods and aspens are stunning, the nights are cooler and the warmth of the gas fired wood stove feels great. If you are interested in fishing, walk out the door to take in some of the best Yellowstone River fishing of the year. Guests who are interested in hunting will find the Yellowstone Lookout location primo. This region of Montana has excellent populations of elk, mule deer, whitetail, moose, black bear, bighorn sheep, mountain goat and mountain lion. For further information regarding hunting, licensing and regulations log onto www.fwp.state.mt.us.

Fall is also a great time to visit Yellowstone National Park - the elk come down from the high country and can often be heard 'bugeling', the bears tend to be out and about, and other wildlife is typically easy to view. And, while the wildlife is in abundance, the tourists are typically not-- so you can enjoy this special place in its most natural state.

Winter--When winter sets in and snow falls on the nearby mountains, the Yellowstone River is fabulous to watch as ice chunks float by. Downhill skiers can head for the slopes at Bridger Bowl or Big Sky, while cross country skiers and snowmobilers can find fabulous trails in the mountains nearby or in Yellowstone Park. After a long day of winter play, the cozy gas fired woodstove at Yellowstone Lookout will be a welcome sight.

The magnificent North entrance to Yellowstone Park is a short 25 to 30 minute drive to the South through Montana's fabulous Paradise Valley. You'll find that most of the Yellowstone Park roads are closed to normal vehicle traffic during the winter, from mid-December through mid-March. As such, it makes a winter visit an outstanding time to take a snow coach ride, cross country ski or snowmobile through the Park.

The only car-accessible Yellowstone Park entrance that remains open year-round is located at Mammoth (the North Entrance). That plowed road makes for a fun drive in the winter'you can explore the Tower Falls area, the Lamar Valley and Cooke City. You may even want to stop and ski on some of the many groomed cross-country ski trails which are located along this road. If you want to view wolves, check out the Lamar Valley in the winter. It is fairly common to view wolf packs from road turnouts using scopes or binoculars. In Mammoth you can rent snowmobiles, cross-country skis and snowshoes and take snow coaches that transport you to Old Faithful or take you on tours to other destinations.

In addition to soaking in the hot pools at Chico Hot Springs, another favorite winter activity is to experience the outdoor natural hot spring pools at Boiling River. You'll find the Boiling River parking area about 3 miles inside the park from Gardiner. After parking, you'll walk about a half mile along a path bordering the Gardiner River. Eventually, you'll see a place where a creek of hot geothermal water flows into the river (you'll see lots of steam). Here you'll see rocks piled up in the river to create natural pools where the hot water mingles with the cold river water to create comfortable places to soak and relax. It may be a little chilly when you get out, but it's FUN and likely to be an experience that you'll never forget.

Spring--In the Spring as plants are budding, migratory birds return, newly born animals appear, the first tiny wildflowers bloom, and the fish start biting at your private fishing accesses at both Yellowstone Lookout North and South.

Spring is another incredible time to visit Yellowstone Park, especially if you enjoy wildlife. Great photography opportunities are everywhere, and people are not. The newborn bison and elk babies are born and usually can be easily seen throughout the Park. And, if you like wildflowers, you'll find many varieties to admire and photograph.

Summer--As Summer unfolds, you'll watch many boats drift by on the River and, in fact, you might want to fish and float the wild Yellowstone River yourself. The nearby meadow and fields turn to green, the birds and animals are minding their young, rodeo season is under way, and horseback riding, hiking and mountain biking are always fun. And, if you visit Yellowstone Park, you'll see it in all it's glory!!

Directions: This three bedroom, two-bath new cabin in the Paradise Valley literally looks out over the Yellowstone River and is a short thirty-minute drive from Yellowstone National Park.

Stunning views of the Absaroka and Gallatin mountain ranges are yours to enjoy along with the bald eagles often seen in the cottonwood grove across the river. Guests can walk out the door and go fishing or floating right from the house at the private Yellowstone River access. The town of Livingston is a short 20 minutes to the North.
