Picnic on the Patio

Just outside the basement door is a patio overlooking the creek. This spring day was perfect for a picnic there.

The cook grilled up some delicious steaks.

Easter at the Cottage

We spent Easter at the cottage and had a wonderful spring weekend.

Our stay would not be complete without an egg hunt on the lawn.

Emigrant Creek still has a touch of snow in it, but it is melting quickly and it won't be long before we have flowers and leaves.

Lounging and Cooking

I purposely designed this kitchen to be quick and effecient. Who wants to spend their vacation cleaning house. It is very easy to work in with plenty of counter space, new appliances, and cooking utensils.

The basement features an area outside the bedrooms for lounging and the french doors open onto the patio that overlooks the creek.

The main floor also has a lounging area complete couches and a television. Perfect for relaxing after a day in Yellowstone.


The cottage has two bathrooms, one on each floor. They both have tile showers and unlimited hot water.

This is the pebble floor to massage your feet in one shower.

I really love the claw foot tub. It is cast iron and holds the heat of the water amazingly well. I can take a bath for a half an hour and still not want get out.

Sites from the Cottage

This is a fall shot of the back porch of the cottage. I love to sit on the porch and listen to the creek while I sip on a cup of coffee.

The front of the cottage and the driveway which has lots of room for parking.


The cottage has three bedrooms with queen sized beds. Here is the master bedroom on the main floor. It has a large window that looks over the creek. The bonus is you can hear the creek from every room.

The basement is daylighted which allows for ample light and there are two bedrooms.

This is the loft with the three full sized beds. Children love this space and feel like they are having a sleepover when they are here. For your comfort, two fans are provided.
