We stayed at the end of August/beginning of September. The property is beautiful, staff was attentive-ish, definitely a fan of glamping overall. We did the fly fishing tour and horseback riding and had the best time. It’s quiet, tents are adequately spaced apart, and on most nights you can see several planets and the Milky Way. There are a couple opportunities for improvement considering the $600/night price tag. I travel quite extensively. All over the country for work, usually 2-3 weeks/month. I’m also out of the country at least 3 times per year. I’m pretty laid back, and have stayed in hostels up to 5 star hotels. Needless to say the customer service was subpar, which would be fine if it was $350/night. Few things of note: -No signage for checkin area. Although we text to let them know when we were to arrive, no one was there to greet us, and we found ourselves wandering around aimlessly until some one finally came for us. Easy fix, put up more signs. -Checkin process left a lot to be desired. We were told about the amenities at Moonlight Basin but only in passing, when I asked for more information I was told to go down to the lodge for more information. There should be a book with available activities for both there and Uley’s lake in all tents. -Also, we were not given a tour, just shown to our tent and how to use bear spray. During our stay we saw other guests getting tours upon arrival. We figured the place out for ourselves but wondered about the inconsistency. -Turn down service was sporadic. Our second night there it dropped to 28 degrees, and we returned to our tent to no fire or space heater, which we were expecting since it was done for us the previous night. Another couple said their tent ran out of fire wood in the middle of the night, and called for more. They waited for almost an hour before some one showed up while contemplating burning books and furniture to keep warm. -Farm to table dinner was delicious and enjoyed chatting with the chef, who is awesome. It was shared space with other families using the grill for the bbq boxes as it was raining, with kids and adults running back and forth, some times bumping into our chairs on the way. It would have been more enjoyable if it was separate spaces, again considering the price per plate. -On the second day it rained all day, and although we much appreciated our tent and shower area being cleaned, whoever performed the cleaning tracked mud all over the bathroom and into our tent and did not clean that up. -Yes, the water does smell like sulfur, and it feels like it leaves a film on your skin. I wasn’t too bothered by that. Was happy to have hot water considering I don’t always have it when camping. We thought is was just us, but we met two other couples there who had the same experience. They seemed to have it worse than we did, noting poor communication and lackluster customer service. There were several other little things that left us kind of like, “really?”. Especially for the price and the clientele they seem to be targeting with their marketing strategy. We would stay again after trying a few other glamping companies first for comparison. Maybe they are all like this?

My husband and I were part of a Natural Habitat Wildlife Safari and the last two nights were spent at Collective Yellowstone. Natural Habitat had rented the entire site for our group of 14 travelers and 3 guides. Although our diverse group included 4 vegetarians and one vegan, everyone's dietary needs were met. I loved gathering in the main tent for meals and conversation. .The chef and her staff made amazing meals in the small kitchen in an adjacent tent. At night we would go by the pond and make S'mores sitting by a blazing fire. The nights were cold, and "Turndown Service" included turning on the electric blankets and space heater as well as starting a fire in the wood burning stove. Staff was friendly, efficient and so helpful. All tents are good and you can't see other tents from yours, The only issue would be distance walked to the main tent and parking lot. So, if walking is difficult, request one of the tents closer to the entrance. Our experience at Collective Yellowstone was a unique adventure and we highly recommend it for anyone who would like to camp but isn't into 'roughing it!'

Collective Yellowstone far exceeded my expectations. I found myself suddenly solo the day before I arrived and was second-guessing whether or not to go alone. It was the best decision I ever made. The "tent", the staff (THANK YOU EDDY, STEPHEN, JOSH, BRETT, CODY), the meals (THANK YOU WILLIAM), the location - all made for a truly life-changing experience. The well-appointed tent was luxurious, had it not been for the beautiful surroundings, I may not have left it. The staff was over-the-top accommodating, helpful, and friendly (they're like my family now). I appreciated the many thoughtful touches, lighting my fire and warming my tent before I retired for the evening, and knowing how I liked my coffee. The breakfasts and boxed lunches were fantastic as were the BBQ dinner boxes but the Farm-to-Table meals were exquisite! William took great pride in his offerings and it really showed. Fine dining in the shadow of picturesque Lone Peak with the occasional moose traipsing through - it was like being on the set of a movie. I highly recommend Collective to relax, unwind, recharge and get pampered! I cannot wait to visit my "family" in Hill Country and certainly can't wait to return to Big Sky.

Collective Retreats at Big Sky was amazing! My boyfriend and I took a weekend trip to celebrate his birthday and it was perfect. The tents are very chic and comfortable and the property was amazing. The beds are as amazing as the description and the tents came with everything you'd think you'd need including a space heater and heated blankets (it went into the 40's at night!), a wine opener and glasses, a french press and tea, and cozy blankets. The opted for an evening barbecue and packed lunches for our meals, and did not partake in the chef's farm to table dinner due to price, though we heard others raving about how good the food was. The concierge was very helpful in booking activities and giving us tips for the area. The price is definitely steep but I think it is worth it if you are going for a special occasion and know what to expect. Definitely take their recommendation on renting a 4 wheel drive vehicle, and make sure you pack warm layers, even in the warmer months. Such a special experience, would highly recommend!

Collective Yellowstone absolutely lived up to my expectations. The tent was beautiful and comfortable and set up with great attention to detail. Stocked with board games, bear spray, insect repellent, binoculars, power points, herbals teas, coffee and hot chocolate. Ridiculously comfortable bed! The hosts were perfectly friendly and thoughtful and surrounds were quiet and picture worthy. We loved our bbq dinner of elk burgers, chatting to the chef about s’mores by the fire and the kettle in the tent was a luxury for a tea drinking traveller. I wish we had stayed longer. Our only very minor quibble was that it was a cold dash to the toilet in the middle of the night, unzipping two tents to get there but that’s because we are soft non campers. Would love to try other Collective retreats and return here.
