Overall, our stay was fine. It kept us sheltered from bears, and it gave us a place to sleep. However, when we walked into the cabin it smelled musky and looked dirty. On the wall there was a smashed spider that nobody had bothered to clean up. Gross! Even though it is a cabin it should still be clean! Throughout... More

This is a good place to stay if you are coming into Yellowstone from Red Lodge, Montana. The drive up and over Beartooth pass to get here is spectacular, you are about 10 minutes from the entrance to the park, and the little town is about 3 miles away. They have only a few cabins, but they did the job... More

We've been staying at Big Moose Resort for several years. The cabins are spotless and the hosts wonderful, friendly people. Big Moose is a great place to stay with it's being so close to Yellowstone. You can hike from the front door on some beautiful trails. Will definitely stay there again!!

The owners of this little place are wonderful & so friendly! We loved our little cabin with a beautiful view of a mountain. Cabins are right off Beartooth Pass, but the traffic noise was negligible. Only a few miles from Yellowstone. Quite a stretch of drive over to Old Faithful, but totally beautiful. Wonderful trip! Would gladly return!

A fair price for a rustic type atmosphere. Good for a Yellowstone visit, also several national forest attractions close by in the opposite direction. I asked about a fire pit, theirs was covered with snow at the time, and they brought us a metal one to use by the end of the day! The duplex style units are not very... More

We stayed here for one night on a 2-day Yellowstone visit between driving the Beartooth Highway and Grand Teton National Park. We will ABSOLUTELY stay here in the future! The cabins were spacious, warm, inviting, conveniently located, spotlessly clean and had lots of thoughtful amenities. The grounds were very nice, and the proximity to both Cooke City and the Yellowstone... More

While fishing Yellowstone N.P. with my brother-in-law, we stayed here for 4 nights. Bev is a great host and was very helpful with any questions we had about the Cooke City/Silver Gate area. The cabin we stayed in had all the basics and the bathroom looked to have been recently remodeled. Great water pressure during the entire stay. Big Moose... More

Bed was comfortable, but that was about it. Cabin was dumpy, microwave had a light but didn't work, there was a coffeemaker, but no cups (not sure it worked either), tv didn't work well, no place for your clothes, no outlets free. Not worth the money.

We stayed here for a few nights when wildlife watching in the Lamar Valley. It is a little farther out then where I have stayed in the past, but don't let that stop you. The room was clean and comfortable and the proprietor was very friendly/helpful. I would definately stay here again.

We recently completed our 4th stay at the Big Moose just outside Yellowstones NE entrance. As always, Bev was a wonderful host. The Big Moose is our favorite place to stay near the wildlife rich Lamar Valley area of Yellowstone and is perfectly located to get that elusive moose sighting on your way intor or out of the park.
