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

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!

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
