About Erica Stone

My fiancé and I recently purchased this property. We are very excited about this adventure. We grew up in Montana, I raised 2 children here and we all love the outdoors. I manage a sporting goods store in Livingston (56 miles north of Gardiner) and Chris is a territory manager for a National sales company. We also purchased the laundry mat located around the corner from our vacation rentals. And if this wasn't enough to keep us busy we added Mr. Blue, an airedale (picture above) We look forward to you being our guest.

Excellent location to the north gate! Easy walking distance to everything in Gardener.

This property has steep stairs leading to the main living space and another to a large second bedroom. Definitely not for anyone with climbing disabilities. We are a couple and it fit us nicely and could recommend for a family of four. We made our breakfast here, packed a lunch, and bbq'd here our last night. The local grocery store is good! Unit has a one-person kitchen capacity, so split the food prep duties! Only one bathroom but it wasn't a problem for us. We found staying in Gardener, and going in and out of the park a perfect way to see it! It seems quieter over here than in other locations and on our 7 trips in and out we never failed to see new wildlife doing new things out there! Antelope hang out near town and we discovered an elk inside the property across the street enjoying her front yard tree! Amazed us how she even got in there! The boiling river is a five minute drive. A nice walk to see it or wear a swimsuit and get a hot tub experience! Would recommend the tiny restaurant, EAT, across from the Roosevelt Arch. Good homemade soup and regular choices. All in all, we had a wonderful experience!

Great Location & accomodation

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I based here to visit Yellowstone. Short of staying in the park this is a great location. It's about a 2 hour drive to Old Faithful early in the day if you get by the construction area before they start. Worked out great. The apartment was equipped nicely and we didn't use the second floor with the two queen beds at all. The king bed was very comfortable and we rested well. We didn't cook so the kitchen was basically just the refrigerator which is full size and froze my four freezer packs very nicely. There is not a washer and dryer in the apartment but the laundromat is next to the walk to the apartment. This apartment is on the 2nd and 3rd floor so be aware.

Good base for Yellowstone.

  • 4 of 5

Good communication from owner. Location is behind a public laundromat and up a flight of stairs. Not a problem for us but others may find this difficult after a long day at the park. Great sized bedrooms on different levels which gave great separation to the kids after too much togetherness. Rest of the quarters were a bit tight but suited us ok. Grilling deck was small and off the main bedroom. We appreciated the grill. Owner stocked the kitchen well and left a few treats for the kids--thank you! Easy walking distance to lots of eats and shopping. The grocery store was a short drive over the bridge. Would stay here again.

Five stars for location and cleanliness!

  • 5 of 5

We have rented through VRBO many times so I was pretty confident about this rental. I can't say enough about the location! It's literally the closest you can get to the North entrance of YNP. There are many shops and restaurants within walking distance. The local grocery is a short drive away. Gardiner is actually bigger than I thought it would be. Pros: beds were comfy, kitchen was well stocked with essentials, laundry next door, quiet (we heard no noise from any direction), easy keyless entry, safe, very clean, large cooler available for picnics, comfy beds, separate bedroom for kids. Cons: steep steps to get into living area and another set of steep steps to 2nd bedroom (not a problem for us, but you should know), living/dining space is very small (again, not a problem for us as we were not there much), Park St, where you access the entrance, was under construction when we arrived. Initially, we had some confusion because we didn't know where to park and the sidewalk was blocked off. We finally found a parking space and found an opening to the sidewalk, but were unprepared for that little issue! Not the owner's fault and it's temporary, so doesn't warrant a lower rating. Lots of folks say that staying outside the park is not a good idea due to the extra driving involved. We actually enjoyed the driving b/c it gave us more opportunity for wildlife watching. The 5 mile drive to Mammoth Hot Springs is stunning and never got old. For what we paid for this rental, we gained much more space for our family of 4, a full kitchen, a TV, wifi, and many dining options. We would highly recommend this rental! Thanks Erica for everything!

A perfect place to stay for your Yellowstone trip! Definitely the place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

This apartment/condo was perfect for our family of 4. We enjoyed our trip in Yellowstone, but having this place made it much more relaxing to come back to each night. The kids loved having thier own room upstairs, and a plus with thier own beds! Our room was spacious and had a great big comfortable bed. The kitchen was well stocked with the basics, although we didn't do much cooking in it, it was great to have a full sized refrigerator and plenty of space to make/pack our lunches for the days activities. The living room area is a bit small but who needs to sit and watch TV when you have the whole park at your fingertips! ! The kids did enjoy the dvds especially the ones about Yellowstone. Loved having the laundry right there available for us to wash those stinky vacation clothes such a plus to not have mounds of laundry to do when we arrived home! It is easy to find, walking distance to many places right there in Gardiner and just a short drive to the entrance of the park, I mean 1/4th of a mile ! Definitely recommend staying here! Well worth the price and the location is perfect for those visiting Yellowstone!
