The owner of the hotel is really kind and warm. And the hotel is in a great location. We had a room near yellowstone river, and it is just a few minutes away from yellowstone north gate. The only issue that make me a little concerned is that we've find a few hairs and dusts from the previous travelers on... More

My husband, dog, and I came here with a last-minute 2-night reservation--too late to get our own cottage, but our room, billed as an efficiency, suited our needs and was very comfortable with a good bed and cheery atmosphere. Part of the property includes a big deck that overlooks the Yellowstone River as well as a hot tub; two great... More

This hotel was a spur of the moment choice to stay in Gardiner - so glad Eddy and Laura still had a room available for the weekend. We stayed in the Elk room with 2 queens and 2 bunks above, so each of us had a bed to ourselves. The room, kitchen and bathroom were very clean. This place was... More

What a great last minute weekend get-a-way and fabulous days full of fun. Enjoying coffee on the deck watching the river does seem to enhance the coffee flavor as you take in the view. We are glad you had a wonderful stay and hope to see you back soon. More

We stayed several days last month in the Bison Cottage. A traditional motel room with a couple of beds wasn't really an option for us, as we had five people in our party. This room, with its pair of queen beds each with a single bunk bed above it, was ideal for us--my mother took one lower bed, my two... More

What a great find! Eddy and Laura made us feel right at home the minute we checked in. They spent time describing the area eateries and attractions. The cottages were built many years ago but have been recently updated to modern standards and are scrupulously clean. Gardiner is a beautiful little town built on the banks of the Yellowstone river... More

We spent 3 nights here and I would stay here again. When we arrived check in was smooth, Ed brought us to our room and showed us how to operate the hot tub. Ed and his wife are very nice and helpful. We wanted a steak dinner and I called Ed for a recommendation, he had several. The room was... More

Thank you for staying with us. I'm sorry the AC unit was too loud. The door has a screened window to allow outside air in the room and I apologize for not pointing that feature out to you. We do like to eat and therefore are happy to recommend several dining options in town. We are fortunate to have many... More

This was a welcome place on a 8 day trip to Grand Tetons and Yellowstone. Our family of 10 rented 2 large cabins. Had a great stay. Recommend it highly! The hot tub and river location was extra nice too. We enjoyed the town of Gardiner.

Thank you for staying with us. We try to offer a "home away from home" atmosphere that allows you to enjoy the yard area and let the kids (and adults) stretch their legs in the yard and on the deck after being in the car for extended time periods. We hope to see you again if you are traveling this... More

We had a great stay in these quaint cottages. Laura is a wonderful innkeeper, and her personal service during our brief stay was refreshing! We were within walking distance of a great locally-owned grocery store with great fresh meat. We grilled steaks and ate in the common area (a beautiful deck overlooking the river). Our cabin was really clean, and... More

We can think of no better compliment than a guest who wants to return (as you say, a re re repeat guest). Can't wait for you to see the expanded deck and the new rooms. I will post some pictures when we get some interior walls up. We will see you in May for your next visit. More

These are very nice little cottages and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. We stayed in the Bear cottage and have to say that the theming is pretty cute whilst not being too overwhelming. We chose the Bear cottage because it fit our needs with just 2 beds. It also had a kitchen, TV, and everything else that you would... More
