We stayed here in June at the Bison Cottage, and were VERY pleased. The Owners could not have been kinder to us. On the day we traveled to Gardiner, we were going to be traveling about 500 miles and had left early enough to make it by 6:00 pm, but a wrong turn caused us to be driving thru Yellowstone... More

We so enjoyed your family staying with us, and nobody wants to be hungry after a long day in the Park and driving those roads in the dark. That is when peanut butter and jelly never tasted so good. Thank you for the very nice comments. We are pleased that you rested well and enjoyed the deck overlooking the Yellowstone... More

We recently stayed at Riverside Cottages while in Yellowstone Park. We were in the Trout Efficiency. It was a very clean room with pretty fish/mountain decor. Laura and Eddie Cox where very welcoming and helpful on recommending places to eat. Laura gave us a welcome tour when we arrived. The view of the Yellowstone River, the town of Gardiner, and...

Thank you Eddie & Laura for your kind hospitality. Room 14 was delightful. We were so disappointed to have only booked one night, we did not wish to leave. My advise to others - if you are on a 14 day road trip, plan to take a rest here because, it was the best accommodation & lovely spot to just... More

We are so happy you enjoyed your stay and look forward to your turn visit when you may stay longer. I do believe in certain necessities in life - a full size coffee pot and a decent hair dryer! Thanks again! More

Beautiful room, beautiful location! We stayed in the trout room, super cute decor, clean, comfortable! It rained during our stay so we did not get to use that awesome hot tub overlooking the river, this property is amazing! Wish we could have stayed longer, but will definitely have to return. Laura and Eddie are awesome hosts! I would highly recommend!

Laura C, Owner at Riverside Cottages, responded to this review

We look forward to your return. Thank you for staying with us. There is so much to see in Yellowstone that we look forward to your longer stay on your next trip. Maybe it won't rain next time and you may enjoy the hot tub. More

My family of 5 (kids ages 15, 13, and 9) enjoyed our 3 night stay at the Riverside Cottages last week. Eddie and Laura were very welcoming and made sure that everything was perfect with our room. We stayed in the Bison Cottage and had a wonderful time. The kids loved the hot tub and I enjoyed the proximity to... More

I've been photographing Yellowstone for thirty years and photographing in winter for a dozen years or so. I stayed at a couple other places in Gardiner in the winter, but then stayed at the Riverside Cottages and have been there in February ever since. I stay in the cabins. Anytime I have a problem, which are few (and I stay... More

We enjoyed 4 nights here and we're very pleased. Laura, the owner was engaging, informative and very helpful. The first two nights were in the efficiency. A little cramped but definitely clean and cozy. The last two night were in the large cottage wi a kitchen which was absolutely gorgeous. Rooms were spotless and housekeeping was very efficient.

We were thrilled with Riverside Cottages. Our cottage was incredibly clean, and the kitchen was perfect for our extended stay. The view of the Yellowstone River was spectacular. Both staff and other guests were charming. We could not have asked for more.

We stayed here for our last night at Yellowstone. We originally planned to be here 2 nights, but had to cut our 15 day road trip short. Laura, the owner, did not charge us for the second night even though we canceled within 5 days or our stay. She was very gracious about it. This was our kids FAVORITE place... More

We stayed during our family road trip. The cottages are right on top of the Yellowstone River and absolutely beautiful. Sitting in a hot tub overlooking was a highlight for my daughter. Plenty of room, but still cozy.
