When I travel I look for motels and B&B's that are eco friendly. The Yellowstone Basin Inn is very eco friendly plus they clean their rooms with low hypo genic natural products. I have allergies and I am very sensitive to chemicals and pollutants in most hotel rooms.The rooms were impeccably clean. To find a motel where I could have... More

YBI is a good location for entry through the north entrance to Yellowstone. The nice rural setting was perfect for us, with our stay occurring during the first week of October. YBI is about five miles north from Gardiner along the main northern entry road to Yellowstone. We were able to find all the grocery items we needed in Gardiner... More

We were looking for an out of town place to spend a few nights for a winter trip to Yellowstone. This B&B showed up on a Tripadvisor search, so I called and although they are not technically open for the 2014-2015 winter season, Greg agreed to set up a room for us for 2 nights. The room was very nice... More

My daughter and I stayed there for three days at the end of September. Located a few miles outside the north entrance to Yellowstone, it is very convenient and just far enough away from the crowds.

With the help of previous reports on Trip Advisor we were delighted to have the 3 day stay at YBI. Greg was amazing with his detailed schedule for each day & we were lucky to have such immaculate weather to enjoy his planned sight seeing adventures, some of which were from his own experiences, that you would not pick up...

My two teenagers and I stayed at the Yellowstone Basin Inn (YBI) for three nights after not being able to find accommodations in Yellowstone National Park. Our room, the Big Sky, was exactly as advertised; clean, comfortable and quiet. In fact, the entire facility is modern, clean and in a beautiful Montana setting. Plenty of room for us as well....

The Yellowstone Basin Inn is the perfect place to stay. While there, we were able to watch a grizzly from the porch (with the river between us, thank goodness) every morning before our hikes and watch him climb into a tree, stay awhile, and then clamber back down every evening when we returned. We watched a bald eagle fly across... More

Very happy to have followed TA to this quality accommodation. We had the Rainbow Trout room - plenty of space, immaculately clean, lovely linens.
