We stayed here for two nights and after long 12 hour days exploring Yellowstone, we were surprised how glad we were to come back to a place that didn't feel like a hotel. The cabin we stayed in was cute with great pillows, warm quilts, great water pressure and DirecTV. The cabin did have Wifi access but we didn't use... More

Comfortable beds / clean everything/ lots of hot water / wonderful gas heater with easy to use thermostat. I am handicapped and had some difficulty on the 3 steps to the cabin. When I came back from dinner that had added a hand rail! Very thoughtful. Very quiet .

This was our second stay at Big Moose Resort. We absolutely love it here! Cabins are in the woods with deer right outside your window. Only 7 miles to the northeast entrance of Yellowstone and 3 miles to the shops and restaurants of Cooke City. The owners are great people. They are so friendly and knowledgeable about the area.

Had to leave a campsite in the nearby national forest due to a bear (we were traveling with an infant, so did not feel safe spending the night in the woods). Came upon this gem right outside Yellowstone National Park, and got a cabin right away. Clean, comfortable, wonderful bathroom and cozy furniture. The owner was super friendly, and was... More

This was my second visit to Big Moose Resort. I recommend it highly for the Lamar Valley wolf watching crowd, and for folks wanting somewhere quiet, away from the crowds. Our room was clean, the owner was friendly & easy to work with. The other review about moths & spiders, well, it is a cabin. It is in the outdoors,... More

I stayed here for one night on a trip with my mom. The owners were welcoming and friendly and very knowledgeable about the area. We went to the Miner Saloon for dinner based on her rec and it was fabulous! The cabin was comfy, cozy and clean. It had two beds and a bathroom; just what we needed! I would... More

We have been to Yellowstone a number of times, and like proximity to the Lamar Valley. Was clean, comfortable, well appointed, and DirecTV too! We love the Beartooth Hiwy unfortunately the pass was closed, however we were able to get to the Chief Joseph, which was spectacular as well.

Overall, our stay was fine. It kept us sheltered from bears, and it gave us a place to sleep. However, when we walked into the cabin it smelled musky and looked dirty. On the wall there was a smashed spider that nobody had bothered to clean up. Gross! Even though it is a cabin it should still be clean! Throughout... More

This is a good place to stay if you are coming into Yellowstone from Red Lodge, Montana. The drive up and over Beartooth pass to get here is spectacular, you are about 10 minutes from the entrance to the park, and the little town is about 3 miles away. They have only a few cabins, but they did the job... More
