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

We are glad you chose Riverside Cottages for your overnight stay before touring Yellowstone and that you were pleased with the decor and homeyness inside the rooms. We aim to make your stay relaxed with a "home away from home feel" and Eddie is most hospitable. The balcony suites do offer a private balcony overlooking the river and I am... More

I recently stayed in the Pranghorn Efficiency for a few nights while visiting Gardiner. It had one double bed with a single loft. The beds were super comfortable, the window air conditioner worked great and the bathroom was updated and very nice (AND they supply real toilet paper - not the super thin, regular motel kind) :) They refrigerator and...

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

We stayed here for four nights in the Moose Cottage (2 adults and 2 children). The room was very clean and had everything we needed. It is within walking distance to the market, restaurants and the north entrance of Yellowstone. The hot tub was very clean and a great way to end each day. I would highly recommend staying here...

Thank you for staying with us and we are pleased you enjoyed your stay. It is so nice to be able to walk around town after being in the car touring Yellowstone. The hot tub is a great way to unwind and listen to the river and take in the beauty of the mountains. We hope you will come back... More

We stayed here for two nights and had a room with two queen beds and bunk beds. The room was very clean and classy. The owners were very nice and willing to help with directions and advice about the park. I would highly reccomend this place. Its not far from some good restuarants. The air conditioner worked well too.

We stayed in the Bear cottage. Very spacious for two adults and two kids. Super clean rooms. The hot tub was a nice treat also, and of course we had a great view of yellowstone area and the river. The owners are exceptionally accommodating and offer great advice for local spots to check out while in town. Would highly recommend... More

We spent 2 nights at the Riverside Cottages while we had a quick visit at Yellowstone. We stayed in the Fox room, perfect for 3 people. My daughter loved sleeping in the log top bunk! Our dog, Stella, was warmly welcomed, and there was a designated area for her to "do her business", complete with available garbage cans! We had... More

We stayed here on the recommendation of neighbors from Chicago area. Neat as a pin and the owners, Eddie and Laura, really go all out to make sure you are pleased. The price is right, we slept great in the Elk cottage. Kids really appreciated the dish tv (Disney Channel after a long day in the park saved us all)... More

We stayed in the moose cottage for 2 nights. It was very clean and there was enough room for our family of 4. The owners were great and were very helpful with finding restaraunts and telling us about the town and the grounds. It was very helpful having a grocery store so close to the cottage as well.

Everything was very good at the Riverside Cottages. I must admit that on our first view they looked a little disappointing, as they are definitely from a previous day. However, the cottages are nicely painted and in good shape on the outside. Inside ours was very comfortable--well appointed, updated, clean, good bed, nice kitchenette and bathroom in good shape. It... More

Your comments made me laugh. The older cottages were built in the 1930's and we have tried to keep their "historical" charm while remodeling the inside and making them functional, updated, and cozy. We are pleased you found the inside comfortable and enjoyed the deck and hot tub. We hope you to see you again in the future. More
