We stayed here for a week March-April 2015 in the Big Horn Sheep Cottage. Two adults and three kids and a dog. There was plenty of room and we cooked in the kitchen every night. Get up in the morning and had our coffee on the deck while enjoying the view was fantastic. Only a few minutes from Roosevelt Arch... More

My family and I made a last minute trip and ended up in Gardiner. We stayed in one of the cottages. It was perfect for three adults and two kiddos. There were two bunks with queen sized beds on the bottom. Kitchen, flatscreen, wifi were great in the room. It was cozy but perfect- the kids LOVED it! The other... More

The cabins are nice, but a bit small, at least for our needs when we stayed there. We are in 4 adults (a couple and two friends) in an cabin with two couple beds and two bunk beds. It wasn't bad, but wasn't exactly super comfortable. But if you don't mind in sharing a space, you will be just fine,... More

We are sorry you felt "a little too cozy" in your cottage. Our suites have options including sitting areas that give a little more space to relax. We do appreciate you staying with us and hope you will return in the future and perhaps stay in a suite that will provide more space. Thank you for your comments and we... More

I've stayed here multiple times over the years and it never fails to impress. Very comfortable rooms and cottages right on the Yellowstone River, with a sweet hot tub, and very friendly owners!! I will most definitely be back.

Parking next to your room,clean, quiet, nice people always ready to help especially when you come from Europe and hardly know anything around. I will go back next time.

We really liked this one. Cozy, exceptionally clean, excellent quality linens and paper goods, larger than usual fridge and delightful outdoor space. All much better the other mid priced accomodations. Hosts Laura and Rick - YOU ROCK. Thanks for a great memory.

This place is awesome and the Texan's that run it are even better. We have not one thing bad to say about our stay. We stayed for an entire week, and loved every second of the stay. The cottage was extremely clean upon arrival and the service we received was outstanding.

We found these cottages by chance and what a stroke of luck! This vintage resort has been totally remodeled and updated--new flooring, bathrooms, kitchens, new decor. The Yellowstone River runs beside the resort, so we could use the hot tub and the deck overlooking the river. We also watched sunrises and sunsets from the deck and a herd of elk... More
