About Richard Hunt

Our family first discovered Island Park in 1960 while vacationing in the Yellowstone area. We were so enchanted by the uniqueness of the area that we decided to build our own home and guest cabin here in 1995.

Richard Hunt purchased this cabin in 1995

Why Richard Hunt chose Island Park

We enjoy the beauty of the setting, the wildlife, and the proximity to Yellowstone Park and the Tetons, as well as the outstanding fly fishing and other outdoor recreational activities.

What makes this cabin unique

We love the peace and serenity that the area offers. We can walk out the door and hike in the national forest, ride bikes to the Continental Divide and the Centennial Valley in Montana, and cross county ski and snowmobile right out the door.

Guestbook comments from the owner

To our Host & Hostess,

What a charming, comfy, cozy hideaway! You have covered all the bases with attention to every detail that visitors might need.

Hope we can make it back in Sept. Thank you for a really special first time retreat from the desert!

Amazing Cabin, close to Yellowstone

  • 5 of 5

Rich and Diana were amazing hosts!! Rich texted me early in the day to let me know the cabin was open and ready whenever we wanted to arrive. When we did arrive, he greeted us and showed us the cabin.

The cabin is just perfect. The bathroom and shower are very nice. The bed was really comfortable (temprapedic) and the kitchen had just enough to make a small meal, or use the nice clean grill outside.

Yellowstone is maybe 20-25 minutes away. There’s a nice view of the lake. Will stay here again. ;)

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at the Cozy Cabin. The name describes it very well. It was a short drive away from Yellowstone National Park which was the purpose of our visit. Rich was very hospitable and we enjoyed talking with him. It was a great place to celebrate my 60th birthday.

The cabin and location was a perfect Basecamp for our daily adventures!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in Island Park. Being like 22 miles from Yellowstone was perfect for our daily adventures. The lake and surrounding area is very beautiful! The cabin was cozy and had everything we needed. Especially liked the barbecue and the shower was awesome. Mr Hunt was very pleasant and accommodating. Can't wait to come back.

Quiet in the Midst of a Chaotic Elcipse Trip

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Henry's Lake was just what we were looking for. It was oh so quiet and our hosts were more than accommodating, even lending us binoculars. The cabin seemed close to the main house at first but we had total privacy, our own parking space and didn't feel crowded in the least. It was like the host were neighbors rather than the owners. The cabin might look small but it really isn't at all. There was lots of space for the two of us and all our gear and while cooking or relaxing we had lots of room. The bed is a memory foam dream, sooo comfortable.

The area is great for wildlife, we saw moose, prairie dogs, fox (or coyote?), deer and even had a resident bald eagle family. The location is close to West Yellowstone and the park as well as laundry facilities. I really wish we could have stayed longer.

PS: The windows were the perfect height for both privacy and just leaning on to just look out over the pasture and the lake.

Overall we enjoyed our stay at the cabin.

  • 3 of 5

We would have enjoyed the gorgeous views more if we could have seen out the high windows or had the deck out front not on the side facing the owners deck. Also cooking other than with a microwave was limited...frig. very small etc.

Owner's Response: We have never had anyone complain about the windows and the deck, but we are sorry that they did not meet your expectations. We lived in this cabin while building the main cabin, and we never found the windows to be too high to hinder enjoying the view. In addition our photos on our listing clearly show the windows. As for the deck, we were unable to build it on the other side, and the chairs can easily be turned to face the lake view. Our listing also states that the cabin has a kitchenette with a small refrigerator, and there is a photo of it. We offer use of our freezer in the guest cabin storage area. Although there is no stove, there is a microwave, toaster oven, hot plate, electric griddle, crockpot, toaster and barbecue. When we lived in this cabin for three summers, we cooked complete meals with these appliances and did not find the lack of a stove to be a problem.
