Our lake house is located right on the water. Summer days are usually 85 degrees with cool nights in the 60's There are two barbeque grills and lots of outdoor seating. We have a firepit with wood to burn. There is a trampolene over the water and boat and jetski docks, with kayaks and life jackets for your use. Yellowstone, Teton National Park are close enough for a day drive away. There are trails for 4wheelers and hiking. Winter brings a beautiful landscape with gently falling snow.
There is plenty of room inside and out with grass to relax on or benches around the fire pit. If you would rather, you can take chairs to the water's edge. Lots of large pine trees offer shade for outdoor pleasure. There are 6 bedrooms in total and can sleep up to 15 guests with plenty of space and privacy. The main level is where you'll find the master bedroom which has a gas fireplace and a large walk in shower and a jetted tub (there are gas fireplaces on the main and downstairs family rooms also). The kitchen is on this floor and is open, modern, and has plenty of space for cooking a large family meal with plenty of seating at the two dining room tables. The mud room is off the kitchen and has a laundry and pantry room in it. The top floor has 3 bedrooms, including a 2nd master with its own bathroom, jetted tub and balcony. There are two bedrooms with a Jack and Jill bathroom with the shower and toilet in a separate room for more privacy. The bonus room above the garage has three beds and lots of room to play - perfect for the kids! There is also a large daylight basement where you will find two more bedrooms and a bathroom. It also has a family room, small kitchenette, theater room and direct access to the lake. Summer days are usually 85 degrees with cool nights in the 60's perfect for enjoying the two barbeque grills with lots of outdoor seating and lake views. There is also a fire pit for roasting marshmallows with your family. If you want to enjoy the lake, we have a trampoline over the water, a boat dock, jet ski docks, and kayaks. (We do require you to wear life jackets though, which are provided)
There is a dock for a boat and 4 jet ski's. There are places to rent here in Island Park and towns close by. We have 4 kayaks for you to use along with life jackets in several sizes. If you would like to try fishing we have poles available. There is croquet and horseshoes. Plenty of parking is available. We will provide you with a code for entry through the front door.
Other things to note
There is a security gate as you get to the Island and you will need to call to have it opened for you upon arrival. We will open the gate for you and you will drive thru one car at a time. The gate closes after each vehicle and you will be responsible if the gate comes down on your car. (Which is unlikely but a possibility) We will open it for you as many times as needed. Once you get to the cabin a key card will be on the kitchen island. Every time you leave the island you will need the keycard to enter thru the gate.

We will be available by phone for questions and any help that is needed. There is a binder with lots of information about the home. It also has maps and lists of things to do and places see.
We are semi-retired and have recently moved to Island Park and live on an island on a large reservoir. We have farmed for 45 years and enjoy traveling and scuba diving. Our favorite spot to visit was Belize. We spend a lot of time hiking, fishing, kayaking and boating in the summer and snowmachining, ice fishing and snowshoeing in the winter. We love to have our large family come to visit! We love animals tame and wild and enjoy all that we see out the picture windows.
We areso excited to share our beautiful cabin with you. There is so much to see and experience here. We almost feel guilty to live near the majestic Teton Mountains and Yellowstone National Park. We hope that others will be able to have an amazing visit here. We hope it will be a destination for you and not just a vacation stop. We know you will love it here and will want to return.
