We loved staying on top of the Big Horns while on our way to Yellowstone. I wish we would have stayed more than one night. The location is perfect, and it has all the amenities to meet the needs of a family: pool, bar and restaurant. The place was very busy, but it was the peak of summer tourist season.... More

The room was rustic but we expected that. We enjoyed watching kids catching fish in the pond that's on-site. The lodge is historic and the location is unique. I had a great prime rib in the lodge restaurant and my wife had an excellent steak. The restaurant service was good, one of the two waitresses literally running around in the... More

I tried booking a wedding at Bear Lodge Resort recently and it was a complete fail. I had previously stayed here and thought it would be a great place for a wedding. However, it took me almost three months to finally get to talk to the owner (who is the only one that has permission to book weddings) about reservations.... More

After reading many reviews, I was not looking forward to staying here. However, it turned out better than expected. We stayed in cabin 10 and it was clean enough. I expected a horrible cabin, but it was nice. Two full size bunks and a wood stove. There was a small table with 4 chairs. The only real problem I had... More

We arrived during a very period on a Saturday afternoon. The gentleman on reception was very overworked and flustered but after a wait we were given a room at the rear of the Lodge. The interior of the Lodge is a little tired but our room was perfectly acceptable. It did not have any extra luxuries but was clean and... More

We made the mistake of not trusting the reviews. I have read bad reviews of places before to find that they were not as bad as made out to be. This place is deffinitly as bad if not worse than the reviews state. We stayed one night of our 3 night reservation in a rustic cabin (cabin 14 to be... More

Even after reading several reviews we took a chance on our family vacation on the Bear Lodge Resort and reserved a rustic cabin for 3 nights, mainly due to location. Biggest mistake we've ever made in taking our children anywhere. We were expecting the exterior to look like it did, so no surprises there. But the interior of the cabin... More

It was nice to be able to stay up in the Big Horns but this place is really in need of some new management. All transactions (restaurant, hotel, gift shop) had to go through one register so there was always a wait time of at least 5 minutes or longer for service. Then only one person at the register who...

My family had an excellent, summer overnight at the Bear Lodge Resort. It was a perfect place to refresh a weary traveler, just five hours from Old Faithful in Yellowstone Park. We arrived after dinner to a clean and quiet room. The morning breakfast was spectacular--omelets prepared to order, fresh waffles, fruit, and a blanket of purple and gold wildflowers... More
