These cabins aren't much to look at from the outside, but are comfortable and somewhat updated on the inside. Towels and sheets were clean. The owners left a box fan in the window which was helpful in drowning out the sound of the traffic on the two-lane highway (which was probably less than 100 yards away.) Made all arrangements thru...

Absolutetly gorgeous place to stay. Close to West Yellowstone which makes the exploring Yellowstone easy. Beautifully sits on the lake and the cabins are amazing. Our cabin easily sleeps 6 with full kitchen. I'm helping to plan a trip for some New Zealand friends and I plan on making Moose Bay cabins our focal point. Can't wait to go back!

I chose the small cabin w/o kitchen, but it had a coffee maker, small refrigerator and microwave. The cabin was clean and well-kept. It was the perfect embarkation point for snowmobiling. The Drift Lodge is a pet-friendly hotel, but be wary if bringing small pets. I had two small dogs, which I keep crated when out of the room. It... More

You have to research this before you book as it may not be for you. If you want the pool, the restaurant and shops and people then look elsewhere. You don't need GPS to find it, it's not remote at all, it's on the main highway and a short drive to Yellowstone. We only booked one night and wished we'd... More

This is the first time I rated a lodging place. This is in Idaho, in a country side, in a residential area combined with commercial. The rooms are decent to be fair to the owners. But looking for this place using GPS, map quest, yahoo map, google wasi impossible. We found the place after on our way back to the... More

The hotel was a group of cabins. We got there late and left early so we basically used it as a place to sleep and not more. I don't believe there were any amenities other than just the lodging (no pool or restaurant that I saw) We got through yellowstone late and called to let them know that we were... More

Stayed here for one night before heading into Yellowstone the next day. We had a queen cabin. Although the cabin itself is obviously quite old, it was completely redone on the inside just recently. The bed was the most comfortable hotel bed I've ever slept on! The cabin had a fridge, microwave, and coffeemaker. Also had Direct TV. This was... More
