BRIEF DESCRIPTION: Towering Pines is a beautiful three-bedroom log home full of custom furnishings. The home borders the pristine Sun West Ranch and sits just above the Madison River, giving you access to the 1,600 acres of common area on the Sun West Ranch plus 200 private acres of your own. This area has been left wild with just a few dirt roads, three stocked trout ponds and three miles of Madison River. With such a large piece of property it is essentially a wildlife preserve. You will likely see eagles, deer, elk, coyotes and lots of other interesting wildlife on the property.
BEDROOMS AND BATHS: This home has three bedrooms plus a bonus room. The master bedroom is located on the main level of the home and it beautifully decorated with western décor. It has a king size bed, seating at a big bay window, and a flat screen TV. There is a master bath with a tub and shower combo along with rainwater showerhead. Upstairs there are two bedrooms and a bonus room. The first has a king size bed with a flat screen TV. The second room has a trundle bed with the bonus room attached. The bonus room has three twin beds, a couple of kid-sized chairs and a TV. There is one bathroom upstairs with a stall shower.
KITCHEN: The kitchen, dining, and living areas all flow together to create the great room in this cozy western home. The modern appliances have an antique look and the cabinetry is all custom cherry, adding to the western and rustic décor of the home. The very well appointed kitchen has everything you’ll need. There is also a gas BBQ out on the deck if you prefer to grill your meals.
DINING ROOM: The dining room table seats four to six comfortably and with additional seating for five at the bar, you’ll have plenty of room for company.
LIVING ROOM: A wood-burning fireplace in the middle of the great room warms the home on a chilly evening. You’ll be comfortable whether you’re seated on one of the cozy leather chairs or playing games at the dining room table. There are lots of windows to take advantage of the lovely views and glass sliding doors to take you out to the front or back of the home. There’s a flat screen TV and a great sound system with built in speakers, making it a very appealing place to come home to after the day’s adventures.
LOFT: In addition to the bedrooms upstairs, there’s a great office/reading area in the loft that overlooks the living area.
OUTDOOR AMENITIES: Several chairs line the wrap around porch. There is also plenty of outdoor seating, including a picnic table under the trees and a bench swing with a view to die for.
SETTING, ACREAGE, VIEWS: Nestled in the pine trees on a hillside above the Madison River, this home has a remote wilderness feeling. A short walk from the home is the Madison River that runs through the property. This property is surrounded by the 2,000 acre Sun West Ranch and by forest service land. It really is like having your own private Yellowstone. You are also just half an hour from Yellowstone National Park.
ACTIVITIES NEARBY: You’re in the middle of fishing heaven – with the Madison River, Yellowstone National Park and Henry’s Fork of the Snake River close by. There’s also hiking, mountain biking, exploring Yellowstone National Park and nearby ghost towns. There is so much to do!
DISTANCE TO TOWN AND AIRPORT: Sun West Ranch is located 30 miles South of Ennis and about 30 miles North of West Yellowstone. The drive to Bozeman's Gallatin Field is about an hour and a half.
We really enjoyed our stay at Towering Pines. The setting and views, not to mention access to miles of fishing on the Madison were great. The cabin was well equiped and very comfortable for our annual family get together.
My wife and stayed for a rainy cold week. Lucky for us we had a beautiful, cozy place to hide out until the weather cleared.
The house really made us feel at home. Every room was full of neat items to discover.
The house was our base camp, we visited Yellowstone Park, the western flavored city of Ennis and the real western city of Virginia City, and caught a bunch of fish.
We hope to return soon.

Great place for two couples, abundant wildlife right on SW Ranch. Had deer right in the yard, elk all over the ranch and had two moose bedding down at night right down the hill from cabin. House has all the amenities. Spices and flour, oil, tin foil, fans, coolers, washer and dryer. We had breakfast and supper at home almost every night and would pack a cooler with drinks and food for lunch in YNP. Owner's Property Manager, Brad, was superb to work with.
If you want something different to do, ask Brad as he was a great source on info on the area. We put 2900 miles on our rental in the two weeks we were there and only in YNP 7 times. Lots of elk and antelope along the roadways. We even saw an antelope giving birth. Hope you enjoy your stay as much as we did. Oh, one last thing. Walk outside at night at look up. OMG, didn't know there were that many stars.
The stay was wonderful and the home was absolutely beautiful! Fishing right there in the Madison just a short drive/walk every evening was a dream. We saw lots of wildlife right on the property including 3 moose. Top notch accommodations combined with the best trout fishing in the world = priceless!!
