We stayed here for 2 nights on a tour of the Yellowstone area and it was great! There was a slight issue on check in but soon sorted and our cabin was lovely. Simple and basic but all that you need. I was on the pull out sofa which was a bit uncomfortable (possibly needs a new mattress or the... More

Hello Again TravelingNicx! Thank you so much for taking the time to review both the Ranch and the Restaurant! We really appreciate your business and I will take your suggestions to heart around the sleeper sofa. Someone has to be making a comfortable sofa mattress yeah? Travel safe and we'll see you next time! Duncan Allinson ~ general manager More

Beautiful lodge! Tremendous service! Some of the nicest people we have ever met! The rooms are nicely decorated and the bed was comfortable. We actually added days so we stayed in 2 different rooms. Both were great! The restaurant next door was wonderful. We had the same server most of the time and enjoyed getting to know him. I hope... More

We stayed in the Yellowstone area for 10 days, did a full circle around the park. This was the best restaurant we ate at by far. We had the trout, and the short ribs. Both delicious. The soup and salads too. I can't tell you how many restaurants on this trip goofed up even soup and salad. Get some of... More

My husband and I stayed here for our first anniversary and it was definitely well worth it! The lodge is beautifully decorated and the staff is incredibly friendly. They offer a variety of things to do and the views are outstanding. It is also conveniently located to the West Entrance of Yellowstone. We will be back!

Stayed here in a cabin having left Grant village early and found it last minute. It's in a beautiful location, everyone running it is lovely, the cabin was clean, unique and comfortable and the restaurant was great. The hot tub was a fantastic bonus after hiking Mount Washburn earlier in the day. One thing we learned was that you don't... More

Hi Ginger! Thanks so much for your thoughtful review! I am so glad you found us and were able to let us host your stay while in the area. The Ranch really is such a magical place and truly represents an opportunity to escape the hustle bustle when visiting the Park. Please take care and we'll see you next time... More

This is a real open country experience, from the views in all directions to the rustic but comfortable log cabins. And part of the property is a newly constructed restaurant building with a wonderful western decor, a fabulous bar, a high end menu, and a great wine selection. If you're going "out West" for the first time, and the idea... More

Had dinner at the Bar-N while visiting Yellowstone National park during August 2014. Great food, location, and yes people. We did not have reservations, showed up and they found us a table. The staff was so kind and helpful. Food was outstanding and priced as most places around the park. A nice drive outside of West Yellowstone and I would... More

We stayed at the Bar N Ranch in cabin 1 for 3 nights. The "cabin" was like a small log house, it was perfect. The furnishing included a large desk, oversized stuffed chair, couch, microwave, coffee maker, direct TV, and a very comfy bed in a separate room. The back porch had a private hot tub with a view of... More

If you wish to stay in the West Yellowstone area, unless you are lodging within the park your choices are largely limited to a plethora of motels in the town of West Yellowstone, a locale that is notable for neither luxury nor charm. Fortunately, if your pockets are deep enough there is a fantastic alternative: The Bar N Ranch. Only... More

We were checked in by a very cheerful and friendly “Mandy.” She gave us a very thorough tour of the hotel as well as the grounds. She was also very knowledgeable of the town of West Yellowstone and the park. We followed her recommendations for dining and things to do in the park and were totally happy we did. She... More
