Secluded basecamp for anglers and Yellowstone tourists!

Fridley Creek Hideaway is situated on the oldest cattle operating ranch in Montana. Less than half a mile from highway 89, this clean and spacious vacation rental is 30 minutes north of Yellowstone National Park and 5 minutes to Emigrant. 

The famous Nelson Story, Sr was a successful business man who, in 1866, conducted the famous cattle drive from Texas to Montana with 1,000 heads of Texas Longhorns. Upon arriving he established Montana's oldest ranch, the Story Ranch. He later moved to Bozeman, became the town's first millionaire, and lived a prosperous life. The ranch has been thriving ever since!

The wrap around deck lends a spectacular view of Emigrant Peak. The house is nestled in trees and surrounded by old ranching equipment and outbuildings, giving it a unique western vibe. The creek is a short walk from the house and fishing access points on the Yellowstone River are a 5 minute drive north to the Emigrant fishing access.

A great stay in an unbelievably gorgeous area

“This place could get 5 stars for the views and outdoor amenities alone. Paradise Valley earned its name with absolutely breathtaking views of the mountains and Yellowstone River. This rental is located right by Fridley Creek just up from the Yellowstone River and the wraparound deck is a great place to just sit and take in sights like the majestic Emigrant Peak right off the front door. The property was well-maintained, clean, and has TONS of room for guests. We really enjoyed the ping pong table during our stay, and caught several BIG rainbow trout at the nearby lake. For a "true Montana" getaway, this ranch house in its unbeatable setting is a great place to stay!”

Nice and comfortable home close to Yellowstone

“This is a really nice and comfortable home in a beautiful area outside of Yellowstone. Tanya was a welcoming and helpful host. Being city dwellers, we were nervous about staying on a ranch with cattle, but the cows were actually part of the charm of the place. The first morning we were having breakfast at the large kitchen table when a small herd made their way across the yard in front of the big picture window to graze near the barn. Just another day if you live in Montana, maybe, but for us it was delightfully different. That evening there was a brief thunderstorm that panicked a mother cow until she was reunited with her calf, a scene that was poignant and memorable. We were sad when we didn't see the cows the day we left. The house has lots of comfy couches, a big kitchen and a beautiful downstairs area. The gem may be the room with the pingpong table, where we spent a good deal of our post-Yellowstone time. It's an amazing space with great lighting so you can play well into the evening hours. The downstairs bedroom and bathroom are lovely, with a great shower and nice new fluffy towels for drying off. There are many nice little touches throughout the house that make it homey and comfortable. The one thing that did bother us was the loud sound the water system made (located downstairs but heard throughout the house) whenever you flushed or ran water. We recommend this place, particularly for families. As Tanya notes, it's close to a general store and several restaurants that serve surprisingly good food. I regret we didn't have more time to explore the area and take advantage of the private fishing area.”
