We had a great time on our recent stay at the Ranch. We came there for relaxation, and that is exactly what we got. Our room was nice, and the lodge provided a perfect ambiance. Staff were great, and the meals, from breakfast to dinner, were most enjoyable. We felt that local cuisine was covered well, from smoked trout to... More

My husband and I stayed in one of the cabins for two nights. I agree with other posters that it was a bit overpriced. The furniture in the room was OK but a little worn. We didn't mind much though since the ambience of being on the properties 200 acres of big montana sky country more than made up for... More

We stayed in the lodge for three nights as a home base for our trip to Yellowstone. It was very similar to other B&B experiences we have had, from the congeniality of the staff to the passing conversations with other guests. The room was cozy but comfortable, and we especially liked being able to sit on the balcony in the... More

my wife and I stayed at the Bar-N for 4 days last week. The first three nites we spent in a cabin and the final night in one of the lodge rooms. Our lodge room was much nicer than the cabin which was kinda basic with very limited drawer space and small bathroom. The main draw of the cabin is... More

Downtown West Yellowstone is filled with many typical tourist motels and restaurants. I felt that this opposed the serenity that can be found in Yellowstone Park Just take a short drive past the town to find that peace again. Bar N Ranch consists of the main lodge and several cabins. Our stay was in a cabin with 2 bedrooms, kitchen,... More

I was looking forward to staying at the Bar-N-Ranch. I had read all the reviews and was very pleased to see the number of 5’s that they receive. Then I arrived and reality set in. First the staff always has a smile and you think great except you realize the smile is superficial. They don’t care about you the just... More

My wife and I recently spent 4 nights at the Bar-N-Ranch. The facilities were great though the cabin we stayed in was a little cozy. We did not look at the rooms in the lodge. The Bar-N-Ranch seems to be in the middle of nowhere, but after a while I realized there were great views at a distance. This is... More

We recently returned from a very comfortable 3 night stay at the Bar N. It was a wonderful retreat form the daily crowds at Yellowstone NP. The Buttermilk Creek cabin accomodated our party of 3 adults and 2 teenagers very comfortably. And the breakfasts were terrific!

We did not stay here but had a wonderful meal there. When/if we go back to Yellowstone--we will stay here. The staff is warm and friendly. The food was great. It's 6 miles from the West entrance to Yellowstone and at 70 mph on rt. 20 it only takes 5 or so minutes to get to the West entrance. It... More

We are a family of 3, our son is 14 and we recently stayed at the Ranch in July, 2008. The help and owner where all very friendly and helpful. We stayed in one of the two bedroom cabins, which worked out well for us. The bedding was very comfortable, maybe the only negative would be the main bedroom was... More
