We stayed in one of the 2-story duplex cabins. This place is in a wonderful quiet location with a beautiful view outside your windows/door. Only 50 miles from north entrance of Yellowstone and 15 miles from Livingston restaurants. I ate breakfast on the deck overlooking the river and mountains. WIFI was reliable, room was clean and comfortable, and my son... More

We stayed here for 3 nights on the tail end of our Montana/Yellowstone vacation. After visiting Yellowstone it was such a pleasure for me, my husband, and teenage daughter to walk into our room. We were thrilled to see how beautiful the view was and our room was gorgeous which included a nice size flat screen TV, Wifi, and A/C!... More

Thanks for coming to join us on your Yellowstone National Park vacation, and glad you enjoyed our new Bridger King cabins.

We stayed at a two story cabin, it is attached to another unit. We did hear our neighbors talking here and there lol The breakfast that was included in our stay was super nice, much much better than those free breakfast you normally get a hotel. The ladies at the kitchen were very friendly and great at cooking, the homemade... More

Gorgeous cabins overlooking the Yellowstone River! We only stayed one night on our way into the park, but the place was super comfy and they accommodated a late check in. The only negative was the enormous number of bugs in the room. We were careful not to let in the swarms of moths, mosquitoes etc that were swarming on the... More

Glad you enjoyed your stay! Sorry to hear about the bugs, being right on the river we definitely can see some epic hatches during the summer. The screen doors help but unfortunately are unable to stop all the bugs coming in all the time. I appreciate that you were understanding. I will be sure to tell the breakfast staff that... More

We probably booked one of the smallest rooms here but it was very nice and clean. We enjoyed drinks on back balcony which overlooks the river, and a lovely dinner at on-site restaurant. The continental breakfast the next morning was quite good. We also enjoyed walk around the grounds. It was so peaceful after the hub-bub of Yellowstone. The management/owners... More

It's great that you were able to come stay with us at Yellowstone Valley Lodge & Grill. The cozy cabins certainly aren't huge but I know you can forget about that when you're sitting on the back porch over the river. I'll be sure to tell the Grill staff you enjoyed dinner and breakfast as well. Thanks for the review,... More

Since I'm a first timer at Yellowstone and we were going over 4th of July weekend, I booked most of my hotel stays 6 months in advance. We ended up leaving a little early and were in need of 2 additional nights. I found YVL on trip advisor and called to confirm availability since it was day of. Jim said... More

Hello again, and thanks for your review of our lodge. We agree that it's much more relaxing here than the hustle of Gardiner and Yellowstone Park. While those places are great it's awesome you were able to use us as your relaxing base camp. I hope you had fun exploring Livingston too. Thanks for coming, and hope you can stay... More

We stayed here and visited Yellowstone. It is about 35 miles from the North entrance to the park, but a lot of driving inside the park as well. Since this was a driving trip for us, we had planned on doing some cooking, but the kitchenette is really NOT for cooking and is more like a hotel room (also with... More

We appreciate you leaving a review for us from your stay. I like the idea of adding on site laundry as well as some more cooking equipment in some rooms. I apologize that the hot water was not enough for you, sometimes the full sized heaters in the rooms need some time to refill. Thanks for letting us know you... More

Lovely setting on the river gave us a beautiful view. The cabin itself was extremely clean with nice touches throughout. They offered a breakfast with much variety and gourmet flair. Wish we were able to stay longer!

A friend and I spent two nights here as a long drive layover on our way to Yellowstone NP. Jim, the manager, couldn't have been more welcoming and helpful. Our cabin had a deck overlooking the river where we watched swans, herons, mergansers and so much more. The food in the restaurant is outstanding, including the complimentary breakfasts. One of...
