Just wanted to thank Laura for her help in finding us a place to stay in Gardiner. We were two couples with awful inhabitable place (no mentioning the name) booked at Gardiner for three nights. After we were left homeless :) we went around from place to place looking for accommodations. Laura showed us the cottages and they looked wonderful-... More

Perfect place to stay whilst visiting Yellowstone, We had a river facing cottage, wonderful view of Yellowstone river. Very welcoming, clean, comfortable beds and has cooking facilities though we ate out in town. View of stars at night was great, we even saw the Lunar eclipse. To be recommended. Do not miss a dip in the Boiling river about 2... More

We stayed in the Fox efficiency cottage on the night of September 19th. The cottage was clean and just perfect for the two of us. The owner suggested dinner at the Lighthouse and it was fabulous as promised. In the evening we sat outside on the deck above the Yellowstone river and watched the elk. We could hear them bugling...

We spent an entire week at Riverside Cottage #7! Perfect for two....bed, bathroom, kitchen, and decor really set the week for Yellowstone! It is right on the Yellowstone River and walking distance to the local saloons, restaurants, and shops! The Market had everything you need, the Mexican restaurant on Park Street was great! Also, the gift shop down from it... More

We are so glad you enjoyed your stay in the Elk Cottage. It is nice to be able to walk to restaurants and the grocery store after being in the car all day visiting Yellowstone.

We stayed at Riverside Cottages last week (late September 2014) and had a lovely evening. We were happy with the price and stayed in the largest cabin (Bison). It was very clean and comfortable. Although the cabins are next to the road, we were not bothered by it. We did enjoy sitting out on the shared deck near the river... More

Although September and kids back in school, Yellowstone is still a busy place and everything was pretty much booked up. Tried several accomodations in and around the park and all were in the same price range, which I found extremely high. We paid $187 including taxes for the cottage which included two queen beds, a small bath, a kitchen, and... More

We are pleased you found the cottages clean and cozy. We hope to provide a home away from home feel with some outdoor space to relax on the deck and enjoy the hot tub overlooking the Yellowstone River. September is a wonderful time to visit Yellowstone with the Bison and Elk in rut. Therefore it is still our "peak season"... More

Our room - directly overlooking Yellowstone River in the new addition, instead of cabins 1-3 right on the Main Street - was clean but very cramped & sparsely furnished for the price. Sound-proofing between rooms is quite inadequate, but other guests & their kids were pleasantly subdued so never got too noisy. The owner is a really nice, enthusiastic &... More

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

I am sorry that you felt cramped and the furnishing were not pleasing. If we were aware of a problem we perhaps could have moved you to a different room or cottage that would have been more comfortable for you without a common wall with another room. We always strive to make our guests as comfortable as possible. If you... More

We enjoyed the one night we stayed while visiting Yellowstone. It would have been a great alternative to staying in the park. Rooms are wonderful! The location and ease of access to the North Entrance can't be beat.

We were very lucky to choose Riverside Cottages for an overnight near to Yellowstone Park's north entrance. When we first drove up to it, I was unsure about what it would be like because some of the cabins were right next to the road and looked very plain. Don't let that fool you. We had the Trout Efficiency. Although the... More

I recently stayed in the Pranghorn Efficiency for a few nights while visiting Gardiner. It had one double bed with a single loft.

We are pleased you enjoyed your stay. We recently added the zero gravity chairs on the expanded deck and I must agree they are quite comfortable. We watched an Eagle fly over the river and catch fish in his talons not too long ago. We look forward to your return visit when you are traveling this way again. More
