I loved this property. My favorite part about staying here (August, October) was the quiet. When you opened the lakeside door you could hear the ducks and birds. You could hear the water lapping at the shoreline. I just immediately relaxed every time I stepped out on the porch.
In October, there was a beautiful mist that moved across the lake in the early morning as I had my tea. It's lakefront property 20 minutes from Yellowstone, with the feeling of privacy. And of course the fishing was awesome for my husband, and close by. My hubby caught a lake trout bigger than 2 lbs. every 15 minutes at Yellowstone Lake, actually outfished the guides. Ooops, now I'm bragging. He's hankering to go back, as it is difficult to get to good fishing in So. California. The guys went fishing and the girls went animal watching, shopping or just hung out at the cabin. It was a great vacation for everyone.
The animals in the park were great. We had a bison cross the road in front of our car and watched the same one charge another car that tried to pass the bison. Another time I got bit by a black fly when I rolled down the window to take a picture, because we were so close to a bison walking down the road in West Yellowstone.
Oh, and my favorite place to eat was The Trout Hunter. Go when it would be comfortable sitting outside. (It's not worth it to eat inside.) The Trout Hunter is a half hour south of the property, at the south end of Island Park and across the street from Rainbow Realty, and definitely worth it. The food was great. But the best part is that you're sitting in an unshaded courtyard, surrounded with grass, next to the river. Just awesome. We will go there every time we go back.
