You will not be disappointed if you book here. It is about 20 minutes outside of Cody but that should not put you off. Cody get so busy its nice to be outside of the town in the peace and quiet. The cabins are small but very comfortable, clean and you have everything you need. The owner could not be... More

We had a lovely time here. The room and bed were comfy. We had an awesome view from our unit (ask for #7 or 8). Only complaint was no ice machine. This is why I am giving it 4 instead of 5 stars. Really felt like that was a minor request. Very friendly owners. It is about a 10-15 minute... More

So sorry we couldn't get that Fifth Star from you Libby!? We DO have a small ice machine, but it quit working recently, and getting a repairman here from Billings Mt (112 Mi away) isn't easy! We promise that by the time you come back here again, we'll have ICE for you! Thank you! More

Thanks a lot folks-for the great review! Our cabin # 8 IS our best cottage-with the best view! BUT-I don't believe there is a BAD view anywhere on our property-there is beauty and nature all around and we're thankful for it!! (Funny thing that when you live somewhere for nearly 40 years, you sometimes have to pinch yourself and remind... More

If you want to get away from the city this is a great place to stay, very nice and quite. Couldn't had stayed at a better place, so convinient and accomodating. Pattie Jo is "amazing" she made us feel welcomed and like family. Cabins are well kept with cable, WiFi and comfortable beds. If you like to BBQ, park is... More

We stayed for one night at Red Pole Ranch. The hosts were so welcoming and friendly and made every effort to make you feel at home. Our cabin was lovely and had a very comfy bed. Loved being able to go for a walk and see the wildlife. There was a super friendly cat there too. Highly recommend staying here....you... More

After an issue with booking.com, Patty did everything she could to fix it and to make us happy! She really takes care of her guest! On the top of that, the bedroom was clean, nice and cozy. The place is beautiful and quiet, we had a great night. Thanks Patty, I wish we can come back again.

When we read the great reviews on this place, we booked a room in the Spring for an October stay. Patty Jo (owner/manager) couldn't have been more helpful, including directing me to the elk herd on her property. We were there on 1 October 2014, and she was up at 1:30 AM running poachers from the ranch. The room was... More

My husband got sick 2 days before we were to leave to go to Red Pole Ranch. When I called to cancel, the lady informed me that I needed to call booking.com. So I called them & the policy is a full 48 hour notice. This is from midnight, not check-in so we had to pay one nights stay. I... More

Funny Thing-just how many customers "have a sickness in the family" just about the time they want to cancel-too late to avoid the 48 hour cancellation policy-I might add! I'm not saying that the person's husband DID NOT get sick at that time-it just seems mighty suspect because it happens to us all the time! We hold these rooms for... More

The rooms were fine. They are clean and bright. The problem us is dinner. There is not much dinning going on in the area around the hotel. You end up driving to and from Cody , this is at least a 14 mile trip one way. So in the end it seems Cody is a more convenient place to spend... More

Sure wish you would've listened to us!? There is a restaurant that is still open only about two miles from the Ranch-at Yellowstone Valley Inn!? Most of the time, when you stay in Cody-you don't even KNOW that you are in the mountains-as you can't even SEE a mountain from most of the motels in town!? If you want to... More
