We spent 2 days at this wonderful lodge and were so impressed with manager Jim and his team. Located not far from Yellowstone National Park, this lovely lodge consists of cabins with backyard patios overlooking the river. From our first email to Jim to our last incredible meal in the lodge's restaurant, we could not have been more impressed or... More

My husband and I just spent two nights at YVL, and I can tell you everything was top notch! Upon arrival we received a friendly greeting by Jim, the GM. The check in process was seamless. Our cabin (#11) was a short walk from the check in office, and when I opened the door, I was in awe! The cabin... More

We spent a week here fly-fishing every day. You can't beat the setting. They have a great restaurant right on the Yellowstone with a view of the mountains that is spectacular. The view from your deck of the river and the mountains is even more breathtaking, because you are right on the river. The restaurant is set back from the... More

I loved this place and will go back! Quiet, peaceful, great breakfast. We were very comfortable in our room and the breakfast was great. We spent a lot of time sitting out watching the river. Next year I'll make sure we take the time to go sit by the firepits by the main lodge.

I Double Dog Dare You...to walk into your room and NOT head for the sliding doors that open onto the patio and the most beautiful view of the Yellowstone River/Absaroka Range that you are ever apt to see.

My husband and I stayed at the YVL for 3 nights in mid-October and were so pleased with this lovely place!

It's a short drive from downtown Livingston and a great point between Bozeman airport and Yellowstone National Park. Staff was... More

My husband and I are repeat customers of YVL. Everyone on the staff remembered us from last year. We felt so at home the moment we entered our cabin. Plush towels and excellent pillows are what stood out this year. Everything else in the cabin was as expected. YVGrill is still cranking out the best food in the area. Really... More
