    About this property

    Barn on the Banks of Yellowstone National Park

    Riverfront vacation home with kitchen and balcony
    Wow..what a the loft! You may not have been 'Born in a Barn', but here's your chance to stay in one and VACATION 'Till the Cows Come Home'! We invite you to stay in our barn loft and call it your home, while you relax and enjoy our nation's largest and oldest National Park. Barn on the Banks is located just above the Yellowstone river in a quiet residential area on the outskirts of Gardiner, Montana. We are less than 1 mile to the park's North Gate Entrance, famous for the Teddy Roosevelt Arch, and within walking distance to down town shops, restaurants, a grocery store, post office and excellent trout fishing. Yellowstone river runs through this small town that is nestled at the foothills of Electric Peak, a majestic mountain that carries snow throughout most of the year. We are located at the end of a lane with no through traffic. Our loft overlooks the confluence of the Gardiner and Yellowstone rivers, and has unobstructed spectacular views of the mountains. We border the river and we are directly across from Yellowstone Park. A short walk down the bank takes you to the river's edge where you can sit and enjoy nature, including frequent fliers of ducks, geese, bald eagles, and osprey, or possibly see a family of otters playing in the water. From our deck you can view hummingbirds, mountain songbirds, and wildlife including deer, elk, Big Horn sheep, Pronghorn (antelope), or possibly see a bear, wolf, coyote, or bison. One summer while sitting on the deck of the barn, my husband witnessed a doe deer giving birth to twin fawns. We frequently saw mama deer and her little ones close to our house and barn throughout the summer. Now we've seen yet another 'Near Barn Birth'! Over Memorial Weekend, we and our guests witnessed an Elk giving birth just a few feet below the deck of the Barn! This is truly an area you'll be able to experience nature. The barn has never housed animals, the bottom of the barn is used for private storage. The barn loft was renovated in 2008-2009, and features a full kitchen with all new appliances, comfortable seating in the living area, and a large deck that looks into Yellowstone Park. You can sit by the fire on a chilly night, or cool down with air conditioning on a hot summer day. There are amazing views from all areas of the loft made easy by several large windows. The master bedroom has a king bed, private bath, air conditioning, a fireplace and your own private balcony to sit, relax and enjoy the sunset. The cozy 'Queen Room' catches the morning sun, and has the ambiance of a fireplace as well. The 3rd and "middle bedroom'" has one full sized double bed and one twin bed. The sofa in the living room converts to a full size bed. The deck which overlooks Yellowstone Park and the river, features outdoor tables and chairs as well as additional seating and a gas grill under the deck. So come and stay with us, enjoy our 'Barn on the Banks', and make your vacation one you will remember. **NOTE: There is an additional 3% Gardiner Resort Tax that you will be billed separately for if your stay is June through September. - Your Hosts, Ken and Linda.

    5/5 Excellent


      We couldn’t be happier with our stay. It was the perfect location for our adventures! The barn is just lovely, so comfortable and charming. We watched elk and coyotes from the balcony and enjoyed the antics of the bull elk in town. Absolutely recommend and would rent again enthusiastically!

      5/5 Excellent

        Wildlife Aplenty

        Had an enjoyable stay. Conveniently located to town and the northern entrance to Yellowstone. As we walked out our second story 3 bedroom apt we were pleasantly surprised by a 8 pt mule deer nibbling on the vegetation. (He was surprised too!). Having a full kitchen and laundry was excellent. We would recommend highly.

        5/5 Excellent

          Exactly as advertised

          Barn on the Banks was exactly as advertised, with great proximity to Yellowstone and nestled in the charming town of Gardiner. Views off the deck were a lovely way to start and end the day. House was comfortable with a great number of amenities offered combined with many charming and whimsical decor details.

          5/5 Excellent

            Charming Loft

            We stayed at The Barn On The Bank sept 16-24. It was a perfect place for us to use as a home base while enjoying our time in Yellowstone National Park. One of our favorite things was watching Elk, and Mule Deer come right up into the yard. The view from the deck was amazing. We enjoyed relaxing in this quiet and comfortable loft after a long day in the park. After cooking dinner we would go out on the deck and look at all the stars. Our host Linda and Ken lived right nextdoor and were always available to answer questions or resolve any problems. We would highly recommend staying here.

            5/5 Excellent

              Home away from home with a breathtaking view and wonderful hosts

              We recently stayed at Barn on the Banks for our first trip to Yellowstone National Park and could not have made a better choice. Linda and Ken are kind and gracious hosts who took the time to discuss areas of interest, points of scenic beauty and wildlife viewing as well as activities and local restaurants. We are a family of five (all adults) and there was plenty of room for everyone. We did not even use all the beds. The "Barn" is warm and cozy, with all the conveniences and comforts of home. There are antiques and items of interest throughout the "Barn" which are fun to explore. Everything is impeccably clean, showers are hot and beds so comfy! There is a porch facing toward the river with the most spectacular view. What a thrill it was to be sitting out there one morning and have two mama and baby elk stroll right through! "Barn on the Banks" is really one of a kind. We do not feel we would have had these unique experiences had we stayed elsewhere. In addition, there is a lovely pathway through the garden which leads down to the river - so peaceful. The location was perfect - a five minute drive to the North Entrance of Yellowstone. Linda and Ken, we thank you for making our stay so memorable and hope to see you again one day!
