  • Excellent place to stay for a family. It is located in a quieter neighborhood, yet is very close to West Yellowstone shopping area, and is equally close to the park entrance. The staff is kind and helpful. The place is clean and comfortable, and is big enough for 4 people. Bathroom is clean and is of reasonably size. You can cook, sit around a fire pit outside, borrow complementary binoculars and walking sticks, or rent bikes. Overall very good.

  • Perfect location! One block from Yellowstone entrance and walking distance to restaurants and shops in town. Loved the porches and the evening campfire with smores. Ample parking. Really feels private. Free laundry a huge plus! Loved the books inside and decor. Spacious rooms and bathroom. Just lovely. Will stay again!

  • Great location with large, clean rooms. Great place to unwind after exploring Yellowstone Park. Beautiful cabins in its own little neighborhood. Loved the front porch and fire pit. Stayed in and around Yellowstone at various locations and this was our favorite.

  • Maybe the best place to stay in West Yellowstone. I can’t tell you how much we enjoyed staying here. All cabins are well laid out with a gas fire place in each unit and a gas fire pit in the center of 3-4 units. The rooms were clean, spacious, and quiet. Easy access to the west gate and food and gas. We were so pleased and highly suggest them
