Popular vacation home that’s new to our program

Just 8 miles west of West Yellowstone & the Yellowstone National Park entrance

Stunning views of Lionhead Mountain and surrounding peaks

Master bedroom walks out to deck and the views

Easy access to forest service trails, to Hebgen Lake, and to fishing on area rivers

BRIEF DESCRIPTION: Elk Crossing is a great base camp for exploring the Yellowstone area. It’s just 8 miles to the park entrance, is surrounded by national forest trails for hiking, mountain biking, and snowmobiling, and it’s a short drive to a quiet cove on Hebgen Lake. With 1700 square feet of living space and an open floor plan to the kitchen, dining area and great room, it’s a very comfortable home for your group. There’s an attached two car garage for guest use.

BEDROOMS AND BATHS: The home has three bedrooms and two baths. The master has a king size bed, views to the mountains, your own door to the deck, and a fabulous master bath with a walk in rainforest shower and a large jetted soaking tub. At the other end of the house are two additional bedrooms, one with a queen and the other with two twin beds. They share a full bath with tub and shower.

KITCHEN: This is a great kitchen for a group as it opens to the bar, the dining area, and the living room. It’s equipped with all everything you need to cook and entertain, including a smooth top electric range, tons of serving pieces and picnic ware, and small appliance extras like a crock pot, electric mixer and blender.

DINING AREA: The dining table seats six comfortably and the bar accommodates another four. There’s also a dining table and a barbecue for enjoying outdoor meals on the back deck.

LIVING ROOM: The great room has a gas fireplace with a rock hearth, a flat screen HD TV with satellite service, a beautiful knotty pine cathedral ceiling and comfy seating. Huge picture windows let in lots of natural light and a door just past the dining table leads to the back deck!

SETTING, ACREAGE, AND VIEWS: Elk Crossing is set in the meadow of a quiet, woodsy vacation home neighborhood about 8 miles west of West Yellowstone, which is the west entrance to Yellowstone National Park. It sits on one half acre and enjoys incredible views of Lionhead Mountain and other peaks along the Continental Divide. You’re likely to see elk, moose, and maybe even a bear in this beautiful wild area!

OUTDOOR AMENITIES: The large back deck is perfect for morning coffee and for dinner with a sunset view of the mountains. Two chaise lounges are there for when you want to just do nothing. For snowmobilers, there’s a two car garage for parking your rigs.

ACTIVITIES NEARBY: In winter you can snowmobile right from the house and get onto hundreds of miles of groomed snowmobile trails. If you prefer Nordic skiing, West Yellowstone’s Rendezvous Trails are a short drive away, and you can explore Yellowstone Park by snow coach. In summer there’s hiking and mountain biking right out the door, fishing on blue ribbon streams, boating on Hebgen Lake, and of course – day trips into Yellowstone Park. There’s so much to do!

CLOSEST TOWN AND AIRPORT: You are 8 miles from the town of West Yellowstone, 90 miles from Bozeman’s Gallatin Field Airport and 110 miles from Idaho Falls, Idaho.

We enjoyed our stay at this lovely home. Being out of the town allowed us to see the countryside, the beauty of the Aspen trees and a mule deer outside the kitchen window early one morning. Since we did have a few rain showers during our stay, the attached garage was extremely helpful when loading and unloading the car. This is a property that we would recommend to our friends and anyone else traveling to West Yellowstone.
Manager Response:
Hello Donna - Thank you so much for being our guests and for your comments about the home. We agree that it's a beautiful spot. We are new managers and there is a new owner of the property, so we are making updates to both the amenities and décor. We hope you can come stay again sometime, either here at Elk Crossing or at another home that we care for. - Suzy

This property was wonderful! It was everything described and more! It is beautiful and very well equipped. Linens, dishes, kitchen were all first class. We appreciated the attention to details like night lights, lip balm and body lotion in bathrooms! It was so delightful to sit on the deck and enjoy the beautiful view! Its proximity to Yellowstone made it even better.
Manager Response:
Hello Christine - Thank you for your kind words about Elk Crossing! As new owners & managers of the home, we are busy trying to make it as comfortable and up to date as possible. We're glad that you appreciated what we've been working on for our guests. Please come back and stay with us again! - Suzy

My husband and I,along with our 3 adult children, stayed at this great home. While West Yellowstone entrance to the park can be busy, it is more central to the overall park. The house has recently changed hands and new owners are terrific! They are aware of little things that currently need some updating and are vigilantly working to improve the house. Overall, We were quite comfortable and very happy with our stay!! Thanks to Susie and Kim for all!!
Manager Response:
Aw, thanks Lisa for the high marks on both the house and our service. And we're thrilled that you enjoyed your stay. As the new owners and managers we are super excited to be making updates so that the property is as comfortable and guest-friendly as possible. We invite you to come back in 2019 for another stay! - Suzy

the house was lovely. just outside West Yellowstone, a perfect location out in the country and away from the crowds. Dishes, silverware and glassware were excellent. The gas grill need some work, but that would be the only negative of the property. Although we did not see wildlife out the massive back windows, I can see that the possibility of that is great with this location. the deck and surrounding land allowed the two grandkids to play after hiking and touring all day. Good sized house, dining area and kitchen
Manager Response:
Hello "Anonymous" - We're glad you enjoyed your stay at Elk Crossing. As of September 2018, the home is under new ownership and management and in our first wave of updates to the property we got a new Weber gas grill! We have also added all new bed and bath linens and upgraded much of what was in the kitchen. The home is just getting better and better. Please come visit again! - Suzy

The house was so inviting, had this warm, better than being at home-feeling. The master bedroom bed was firm but very comfy, I slept peacefully. We cooked most nights, which was preferred over the nearby restaurants. Overall, we couldn't have asked for more.

Was the perfect location! This was our "home base" while we explored Yellowstone NP. Highly recommend this rental!

We were very impressed with the home. It was spacious, well appointed in terms of furniture and kitchen cookware, etc. It's in great condition. The biggest bonus which we didn't even look for when booking was the garage. It was so nice not to have the scrape off the ice/snow from the car, and also unpack under roof. I'd highly recommend this over the standard hotels/condos in West Yellowstone.
Manager Response:
Hello Richard - We're happy that you enjoyed your stay at Elk Crossing. Yes, having an attached garage in winter is a nice plus to any accommodation. We are new owners/managers of the home and we're making lots of upgrades. Please be our guests again sometime soon! - Suzy

Our group had a wonderful stay in this home . Everything was clean and we were very comfortable. In a very nice neighborhood with a nice road to stroll down. Not far from the WESTERN GATE TO YELLOWSTONE NATIONAL PARK
Manager Response:
Hi Michael - We're so happy that you enjoyed your stay at Elk Crossing and that you found the little neighborhood to be so appealing. We certainly love it. Did you happen to find the walking trails in the woods...just down at the end of the road? - Suzy

The home was beautiful, and just as advertised in the pictures. Beautiful interior, high ceilings, and large kitchen with nice pots/pans appliances. Completely furnished with comfortable beds and all the amenities of home. We really appreciated the fully equipped kitchen and all the supplies -- TP, soaps, detergent , plastic bags etc. Grocery shopping is available in town albeit a little high priced, but convenient. We went to the rodep nearby, and it was entertaining. There is a beautiful deck facing the mountains, with patio furniture and a gas grill for cooking out. The master bathroom shower was great as well. The park entrance is a short distance away, and so exploring the different regions each day was also convenient. I would highly recommend this property to any of my friends of family! Book early so you don't miss out. We had a wonderful stay. Our family of Nana, Papa, Mom Dad and two granddaughters.
Manager Response:
Hello Kathy and family - It sounds like you had a great vacation. We also love checking out the rodeo one evening when we are staying there. It's a bit of local color and fun for all ages. Thank you for being our guests and we hope that you can all come back again soon! - Suzy

Our group of 6 adults had a lovely stay in this comfortable home. We especially enjoyed the large kitchen (we are all avid cooks) and grill, we ate nearly every breakfast and dinner at the home so the spices, olive oil and good collection of pots, pans and knives was appreciated. The houses close proximity to the West Yellowstone gate made our daily trips into the park easy. Overall the house was wonderful place to be while vacationing near Yellowstone.
Manager Response:
Hi Susan - We're so happy that Elk Crossing (and especially its kitchen!) worked so well for your group. As of summer 2018 the home has new owners who are upgrading and adding to the kitchen amenities - so ti's even better. We hope that you will be able to come stay again sometime! - Suzy

I, my wife, and three kids stayed May 27 to June 3, 2016. That's a great time to visit Yellowstone save for the Memorial day weekend. The weather is cool during the day and chilly at night, and the crowds are minimal (for Yellowstone) except Saturday and Sunday before Memorial day. The house is beautiful, clean, and in a great location; just 7 minutes from the Yellowstone West entrance. The kitchen is well-equipped; there's little you need to bring except food. They even have a blender and crock pot and a good selection of spices. We really appreciated the garage as it started to hail just as we pulled in and we were able to unload in the comfort of a large, clean garage that was tall enough to accommodate the luggage carrier on top of our SUV. With the chilly nights, we made good use of the thermostat-controlled gas fireplace. On our first night, we had a fox visit the yard and got within about 20 feet of it; a thrill for the kids! Overall, a great stay at a nice house.

Great home! Owners have put in a lot of thought into location and comfort. The neighborhood road crew kept on top of the winter storms, and the house was beautifully kept. We were a party of four adults (one senior) and we had everything we had hoped for: easy access; clean, comfortable and lovely space; great views; crock pot and kitchenware; washer/dryer; walk-in shower; garage was a plus! Puttering around with the family in the kitchen while watching the sun come up over the mountains was the best part. That kind of start to the day is not possible at a hotel. I will recommend this beautiful home to anyone planning a trip to West Yellowstone.

This is a beautiful house in a beautiful location close to the West Yellowstone entrance to Yellowstone Park. It is slightly above the surrounding Hebgen Valley and well away from the light, noise and bustle of West Yellowstone. The view from the large central great room out to the mountains west of the house provided for great sunsets on the beautiful deck and wonderful stargazing at night. The huge, well-equipped kitchen, supplemented by a barbecue grill on the deck, made cooking dinner for ourselves a real delight after long days of hiking in Yellowstone Park and along the Continental Divide (just a mile or so away!). Thank you for sharing this great property with us!
