Overview

About the property

Guest House On 4 Private Acres, Surrounded By Mountains And Nature. Sleeps 3-4.

The Wapiti Bear Den is the perfect place to get away from it all. Situated on 4 private acres, we're surrounded by the soaring Absaroka mountains and the quiet of nature. The Bear Den is located in beautiful Wapiti, Wyoming, just 30 minutes from the East Entrance of Yellowstone National Park and 20 minutes from Cody, Wyoming. This spacious one bedroom guest house has been newly remodeled with rustic western decor and includes air conditioning, a full bath, a fully equipped kitchen and a large living room with a queen size sleeper sofa. After a day of exploring, you can kick back on your own patio and enjoy the mountain views and wide open spaces. Wireless internet, DirecTV, a DVD player and a video library are also provided during your stay. During hot summer days, turn up the AC to keep cool and comfortable. The Wapiti Bear Den has all the comforts of home plus Yellowstone country right out your front door.

Our location between Cody, Wyoming and Yellowstone National Park makes the Bear Den the ideal home base to explore the area. The road west to Yellowstone's East Entrance travels through a wide canyon carved by the pristine North Fork of the Shoshone River, where wildlife and rugged beauty abound. President Theodore Roosevelt called this scenic byway 30 of the most beautiful miles in America.

The gateway town of Cody, Wyoming, lies 20 miles to the east of the Bear Den. Cody, known as "The Rodeo Capital of the World", offers a nightly rodeo in the summer months, along with shopping, dining, and the must-see Buffalo Bill Center of the West, a complex of five museums featuring art and artifacts of the American West.

For the horse lover, the McCullough Peaks Herd Management Area, home to over 100 wild horses, is just a short drive from the Bear Den. Located 20 miles east of Cody, Wyoming, McCullough Peaks boasts bands of flashy pintos, colorful sorrels and speckled sabinos, along with pronghorn, sage grouse, prairie dogs, and other native wildlife.

The Bear Den is also a short drive from the Beartooth Highway – a National Scenic Byways All-American Road. This 68 mile byway winds its way through southwest Montana and northwest Wyoming and leads into Yellowstone National Park at its Northeast Entrance. It's a must see!

If fly fishing is your passion, the Bear Den is located less than a five minute drive to fishing access on the renowned Shoshone River. The North Fork of the Shoshone hosts rainbow trout, mountain whitefish, brook trout, Yellowstone cutthroat, brown trout, rainbow-cutthroat hybrids and some lake trout on the lower stretches of the river.

Whether you spend your time exploring Yellowstone or visiting the Cody/Wapiti area, the outdoor recreation possibilities of northwest Wyoming are endless. Hiking, fishing, horseback-riding, photography, bird watching, wildlife watching, and biking are just a few of the many recreational pursuits that you can enjoy during your stay. With their thorough knowledge of the area, Sandy and Steve can answer any questions you might have to help make your stay the best it can be.

PLEASE NOTE: Due to construction on Fishing Bridge, there will be no access into the interior of Yellowstone National Park via the East Entrance Road from October 15 to November 5, 2018. The East Entrance Road will remain open as far as Sedge Bay. People needing to travel through Yellowstone to or from Cody, Wyoming and beyond will need to use the Northeast Entrance during this closure.

About Sandy Sisti and Steve Hartman

Sandy and Steve have been frequent visitors to Yellowstone for more than two decades. After getting married in Yellowstone in 2002, the pair began traveling back and forth to the park with more and more frequency. Because of their love for the Yellowstone area, they decided to relocate to northwest Wyoming to be closer to the park and its wildlife. In 2007, Sandy and Steve settled in Wapiti, Wyoming, just 30 miles from Yellowstone's East Entrance. After living in the area for 4 years, Sandy decided to pursue her dream as a photographer and has become a successful nature/wildlife photographer. Her business, Wild at Heart Images, focuses on the wild world of Yellowstone and beyond. Steve continues to work in the pharmaceutical industry, as Vice President of Quality at Cody Laboratories, Inc., but often accompanies Sandy on her photographic journeys. When not photographing, you can find Sandy and Steve hiking one of the many trails in the area, still in awe of Wyoming's scenic splendor.

Felt like home!

What a great place. Sandi and Steve were very welcoming. The home had many extras. It was great to have coffee provided for the coffee maker. A little snack basket was a nice treat. The views were beautiful. We wish we could have stayed longer!

What an awesome Bear Den! Very clean, quiet beautiful scenery, and the Den was tastefully decorated and truly a home away from home. Sandy and Steve thought of everything and beyond even. We would recommend this place to anyone visiting the area.

YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED...

  • 5 of 5

Not only is the cabin top notch, clean, and in a perfect location, but the owners were fabulous as well! The cabin is in a perfect spot if you are headed to Yellowstone/Cody area. The views were wonderful and due to its location we marked several things to see off the list just driving there. The cabin was clean, exactly as described online, and many extras that we didn't expect. We have stayed at a few VRBO and by far the owners provided the best "customer service" of any to date. They answered the few questions I had before we went; even recommend a nice steak house to help us celebrate while we were there. They were kind and friendly! I couldn't have asked for a better place to stay. You will LOVE it!

Beautiful view, close to Yellowstone

Lovely indoor/outdoor setting. Just 20 minutes from Yellowstone. Sandy provides several extras: small cooler, maps, and hiking guides were very helpful. We plan to visit again
