We tried to get to Hayden Valley early morning or late evening. We saw Buffalo, Elk, Grizzly bears and cubs and wolves. A don't miss when in Yellowstone. Try to find folks along road with spotting scopes, they know where the wild life is.

Wonderful location with all rooms overlooking the slowly flowing Yellowstone River. A rare peaceful retreat just off the main road to Yellowstone South of Livingston. Getting a bit long in the tooth (slow WiFi, 2 prong receptacles) but the warm hospitality and outstanding location overcame these minor details. A strong recommendation. Be sure to understand the somewhat quirky restaurant hours... More

I stayed at the Yellowstone Valley Lodge for 4 days in October and was amazed with the gorgeous views, the delicious food, and the quality of my room. Everyone at the Lodge took great care of me. It felt like I was family! I can't wait to return again!

Our company retreat at Yellowstone Valley Lodge was a wonderful experience. For 4 days we enjoyed amazing views from our cabins of Yellowstone river, and top notch food from the Grille. Breakfast every morning was different varieties of homemade scones, omelets, etc. Dinner at the Grille was as good as a 5 star restaurant! Chef Marcos is the best in... More

I stayed here based upon the all of the positive reviews on Tripadvisor and the not so great reviews on many of the hotels in Gardiner. Jim at the front desk was very pleasant and helpful. The cabins were well appointed and and decent enough wireless and satellite television. Breakfast was included in the rate. The breakfast was freshly made... More

This is a series of cabins on the banks of the Yellowstone. Easy access fishing and guides on site. We had a two bedroom cabin which was quite spacious. Would recommend they add more glassware but otherwise everything was there. Refrigerator, microwave, coffee pot. Great porch to sit and watch the fishermen.

Thanks for writing a review and we're glad you enjoyed your stay in one of our Absaroka Deluxe cabins. We don't mind people watching on the river either!
