Madison riverfront new luxury log home near Yellowstone National Park. Perfect Fly fishing getaway!
Our beautiful, custom log home, which we call The Caddis Shack, was completed in 2014. By no means a “shack” with 4000 sq. ft., with 4 bedrooms plus a loft bedroom, and 3 full bathrooms, on 3 levels. We are located DIRECTLY on the Madison River on the best fly fishing section of the river! The home sits on a 1 acre parcel and is a short, scenic 25 minute drive to the West entrance to Yellowstone National Park. This is the perfect location for enjoying all the area has to offer.

We have furnished the home entirely with locally made custom log and barn wood furniture, and great quality mattresses, soft linens and premium cookware. The interior walls are well insulated for sound and keeps the home quiet and private from room to room.

Fish the legendary rivers of the Madison, the Gallatin, the Yellowstone, the Firehole the Gibbon and the Henry's Fork all from one destination. If you prefer lakes, Hebgen lake, Quake lake, Henry's lake, Cliff and Wade lakes are minutes away.


Our home will sleep 10 people. The main level sleeps 6 PLUS additional 2 in queen bed in loft. A Second master suite is under construction in the lower level, ready for 2018. (The bathroom and bed are there now, but sleeping area needs to be finished, please see pictures for better visual description)

Very comfortable and thoughtful accommodations to make sure your trip is as enjoyable as possible, including comfortable mattresses, quality pillows and linens. We know a good nights sleep is paramount to enjoying your vacation! Open the windows at night and listen to the soothing sounds of the river!


Spacious, fully equipped modern kitchen with quartz counter tops, knotty alder cabinets, under cabinet lighting and stainless steel appliances including trash compactor. Center island allows for comfortable kitchen gatherings. There is a nice propane Weber Genesis grill on the deck for your use including all the grilling utensils needed. There are plenty of small appliances such as crock pot, blender, Cuisinart food processor, rice cooker and coffee grinder. We have provided two small 28 qt. coolers and blue ice packs to use during your stay for picnics and trips to the market.


7ft barn wood table with side bench seating and end chairs.


Beautiful great room has 21ft tall ceilings, large elk antler chandelier and free-standing gas stove fireplace with river rock surround and hearth. There is plenty of comfortable seating offering space for everyone to stretch out and relax. There is a large 65' LCD flat screen TV with Direct TV, Bluetooth surround sound and Apple TV.

Open the dual 6ft sliding glass doors and hear the sounds of the river. Step out on to the large cedar deck with spectacular views of the surrounding mountains and river. Watch your family and/or friends fishing just below while enjoying your coffee in the morning or glass of wine in the evening!


The spacious 20' x 16' loft has a queen bed, nightstands, dresser and cozy seating area perfect for reading or playing games. A ceiling fan and 2 large windows open for ventilation. Enjoy a view of the continental divide range and the river.


On one side of the main floor is a huge master bedroom suite with a barn wood furniture theme with a Cal-King bed. A 6ft sliding glass door opens to a private deck over-looking the river. It also has a private bath (soaker tub, large tiled shower and double sinks). 58' LCD flat screen television in room. There is an electric fireplace to provide a little extra warmth and ambiance as well.

3rd full bathroom is in the lower level which walks out to the river. (Spring of 2018 this will become a 2nd master suite with queen bed)

Here in the lower level you will find an area to stage all your fishing gear, rods and waders. This is an unfinished space with a concrete floor and outdoor carpet remnants. Our guests love the indoor area for changing at night or rainy weather, no need to worry about bringing water and dirt inside. We have provided wader hooks, rod holders, big tables for packs/clothing/rod set up, and chairs to sit in while getting in/out of waders and boots. Just outside is bench for changing, hooks for waders and a hose to wash off.


A large rear deck overlooks the river and runs the full length of the house. There is a table and chairs with a propane Weber Genesis gas grill (extra propane provided, you will not run out).

Bald Eagles, Osprey, Red Tail Hawks and sometimes Golden Eagles, fly overhead as they glide up and down the river. You will also see Pronghorn, deer, moose, river otters, beaver, and red fox near the house. Big Horn Sheep, Mountain Goats and Elk roam on the mountains above and can sometimes be seen coming down across the river.
