We stayed here a week in the Conestoga cabin. Very nice cabin, clean. Had a stove, fridge ,microwave ,nice kitchen and living room . This was important to us as we needed to cut are cost on food to make this trip. The owner is very friendly, as well as the staff and they took very good care of us.... More

My wife and I reserved a cabin back in Feb 2015 for a June 1st visit. We arrived a bit early but the owner greeted us, told us no problem, and took us to the Chisolm Cabin that we had reserved. The cabin was exactly as described in the website when we reserved it. The office and “get-to-gether” room connected... More

Our friends had booked on the basis of the AAA assessment. It was wrong. The entire establishment is screaming out for maintenance and refurbishment. Our 2 bedroom cabin was tiny with a loft which would have trouble fitting a 6 year old. Our bedroom was actually the kitchen/dining room with the double bed pressed up against the wall. The other...

We happened to be driving by and thought these cabins looked very quaint. They had cabins available. The owner showed us a cabin before we booked it and we were quite charmed by it. It was very small but clean and nice. It was perfect for one night. The staff was very accommodating. The restaurant was closed but they were... More

Warning! This is NOT a child-friendly lodge. We were very surprised with how we were treated, especially after the warm welcome we received over the phone when booking our family vacation several months prior. From overly priced, and not very creative or palatable food, to uncomfortable beds that weren't made up daily by the staff, there really wasn't one part... More

We stayed in a delightful rustic cabin. It is small, and it is rustic, but very clean and very charming. The staff was great, and the tiny little dining room was very good (also clean and very charming, good food, somewhat pricey).

Agreed, camping is the best way to experience Yellowstone, but if camping is out of consideration for some reason then the next best thing is staying somewhere that gives you a natural surrounding. We simply loved our Rendezvous lodge. The property does give a nice feel of staying in the woods with a horse stable, surrounded by trees and mountains... More

Visited for 10 days. Great place to visit, very professional and dedicated to the guests. Picturesque setting and very western décor. They have a number of wooden cabins, very comfortable and up to date. Great place to spend a week and visit Cody or Yellowstone National Park. Scenic drives everywhere. The lodge has outdoor grills for cook outs and hanging... More

We stayed here for 4 nights and that was enough time for us to wind down from all the traveling we did around Teton mountains and Yellowstone. If you want to get away from all the technology, this is the place for you. No wifi ,cell service or tv, . There is so much to see around there that you... More

We chose the Elephant Head Lodge because it was conveniently located between Cody and Yellowstone Park. When I first drove up I was concerned that I had made a mistake in choosing this lodge. It is VERY rustic. We stayed in the Dakota Cabin; built by Buffalo Bill's niece in the early 1900's. Very small, but authentic. In fact, the... More
