One of Two Bathrooms

The shower in this bathroom is very roomy, a full four feet square. As a bonus, we enjoy unlimited hot water thanks to our tankless water heater. I don't have to rush through my shower and everyone else will still have hot water when I am done. It saves energy by only heating the water that is used. Pretty nice since all winter the cottage is pretty much empty for days at a time.

Washington, North Dakota Commenters

These folks enjoyed the cottage while celebrating their dad's sixtieth birthday. They had a full week with horseback riding, touring the park, hiking the mountains, and exploring Emigrant Creek.

Mid-Winter Shadows

{Master bed headboard}

Mid-winter the sun is low and we get many clear days to enjoy it. I love how the shadows play off the walls in the cottage. I also love these old doors we salvaged from the original building.

Emigrant Creek Cabins

In the immediate area of the cottage are two more smaller cabins. They are both within walking distance, but are far enough apart to offer privacy. Some groups choose to rent all three places and then gather at the cottage for activities, dinner, pictures, etc. It seems to work well for families and groups of friends. Each group can have their own space, while still being able the enjoy the company of the others when they feel like it.

Here is a great link to a recipe a couple enjoyed while staying in the Gulch Cabin

Coffee on the Porch

Hot cup of coffee, enjoyed in the morning sun on the back porch, listening to the birds and the frozen creek. It is the BEST place to be.

Yellowstone in the Winter

Here is a great blog post about Yellowstone in the winter. It details the skating rink in Mammoth and cross-country skiing the terraces. Brings back some great memories I have of winter visits to YNP. Good times... and some pretty good pictures!

Speaking of winter, snow, and cold, here is the cottage in the winter.
