We stayed here as friends booked it on our behalf. We had a nice dip in the hot pools when we arrived with the lovely backdrop of hills. Our rooms were basic and quite dark (on upper floor in main building) but good sized bathroom. The bed was small but comfortable - pillows could be better. It was lovely to... More

We stopped on our way to Yellowstone Park and enjoyed family shuffle board in bar, kids swam, had an amazing dinner in the dining room (great wine selection) and enjoyed the suite with 2 bedrooms. Especially appreciate it being dog friendly.

Stopped here on the way to Yellowstone park. It's a perfect stop over after spending a day driving and spending time in bozeman. Only 1 hour from bozeman it's also very close to the park. If you want a taste of Montana this is it. Horseback rides, spa, soaking pool, saloon hotel. We ate in the saloon with the kids... More

Unique and charming resort in remote Pray, Montana. Privately owned hot springs located north of the North Gate of Yellowstone National Park. Though the rooms are very average they are clean and comfortable. The historic lodge has tons of charm and beautiful gardens. The lodge restaurant offers very good eats and many of the vegetables are house grown. The hot... More

What a great place. Hot springs, bar, food, massages! So glad we were able to stay here after visiting Yellowstone. Don't consider anywhere else, other options north of the park pale in comparison. Be sure an visit BBQ restaurant in Emigrant.

My daughter and I spent 2 nights at Chico Hot Springs prior to heading into Yellowstone. We booked a room with private bath in the main lodge. Our room was directly off the lobby and very convenient to everything the resort had to offer. Having a private bath was very nice as I understand that most rooms in the original... More

After assuming we were lost, we found the resort complete with busy lobby filled with guests. The location includes a main lodge (where we stayed), along with numerous cabins, a saloon, spa, and conference center. The lobby is welcoming and there are large porches with outside seating. You can check out games at the desk but the highlight of this... More

Thank you for your honest and well written review! When I see words like "quirky" and "funky" in the review titles, it always makes me smile. Thank you for stopping in on your National Park to National Park trip - hope you enjoyed the beauty throughout the state! More

We stayed two nights in the log cabin. It was rustic yet elegant for the area. Campy and fun lodge atmosphere similar to the resort in the movie dirty dancing. The spa was surprisingly wonderful and the restaurant was top notch! No hair dryer or air conditioning but probably not necessary for those vacationing around there anyway. The polis hot... More

Thank you for your review, and for being our guest! You are right, we don't have air conditioning in most of our rooms, generally we only have about 2 weeks out of the year where this can be of concern, however this has been an exceptionally hot summer, hope you were able to stay comfortable!

Loved this out of the way resort (about 45 minutes to an hour from Gardiner travel time). We stayed in one of their chalet's and it was very roomy and sat away from the rest of the resort, but provided for great views of early morning wildlife and sounds. The chalet was very roomy with multiple beds upstairs and a... More

Thank you for your review of the chalet, so happy it was to your liking and that the laundry facility in the room was beneficial in your travels! I hope you can come back another time when you have time to enjoy the hot springs pools and dining. I'd recommend the fall season and mid-week, if you are able to... More

We decided to do a quick trip to Yellowstone, and of course there was no lodging in the park. Not only was there a room at Chico, but it was much cheaper than anything in the park with a private bathroom. It also provided us with access to their wonderful hot spring water, and the buffet breakfast at a decent... More
