“Fabulous Stay-Magnificent Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2011

You would never guess this little mountain cottage setup with what looks like a diner from the outside is an elegant (yet totally informal) gourmet restaurant inside. I have eaten around the world, and doubt I have ever had a better meal. The menu titles may appear somewhat plain, but the actual dishes are anything but with crusting, sauces, and amazingly flavorful presentation garnishes. We had a berry pie made in a pecan sandie crust with mixed glazed fresh berries...amazingly good. Fresh baked unusual, magnificent breads. I just wish I could get this restaurant close to home.
The double cabins are cute and functional with great views of the mountains rising up from both sides of the cabin area and a fast rushing river just across the road. Cabins included TV and internet, just in case you get stuck in bad weather or can't be without. Also included is a small frig, microwave, and coffee pot. Frig was stocked with breakfast baskets of fresh muffins, oatmeal, granola bar, orange, and juice. Friendly and clean. About a half hour beautiful drive from the east gate of Yellowstone.

The Trail Shop impressed us all! Our group of six adults had a wonderful stay and the best dinner in the restaurant (thanks P.J.!) out of the whole week. It was just the right balance of laid back and individualized service. We enjoyed the hiking and views right out the front door. Very convenient to Yellowstone NationL Park and Cody, Wy airport.

Me, my fiance, my 17 year old daughter and my parents stayed at the Trail Shop cabin for five nights this past September. The location is beautiful, remote but within a short drive to a small general store and a few restaurants. The cabin is adorable and so cozy. Two bedrooms, which Jess was kind enough to add a cot to with comfy quilts and blankets! It felt like our own little oasis or hideaway with a great river for fishing within a stone's throw! Jess was so great she supplied us with individual breakfast baskets every morning...oatmeal, fruit, juice, granola bars and muffins! We were so spoiled!!! I intend to return to Wyoming because it is beyond majestic and I intend to stay at Trail Shop because it is home!

I spent the majority of the summer there working for family. I am from Houston Texas and have to admit to be a little bit spoiled; thus, the Trail Shop was the perfect place for me to get away and experience a bit of the good life. The waitress was great, cook was amazing (met her personally, as most of the patrons at the restraint do), and the bar tender was very skilled and knowledgeable in all types of wine. I am happy to give my recommendation to such a class act restraint and Inn.


Thanks Jess and Staff!!!!
