We had a wonderful cottage overlooking the river with it own balcony. There was a fully equipped cooking area and a large fridge freezer. Our hosts were really friendly and helpful and the hot tub was great. So close to Yellowstone without the markup on prices. Free WiFi too. Great stay.

Our extended family stayed at Riverside during our 3 day trip into Yellowstone National Park. The quite atmosphere and excellent location suited our needs perfectly! We loved the convenience to the Roosevelt Arch entrance (without having to stay in the park itself, which seemed like it could've been too crowded for our liking). As a bonus, the kids AND grandparents... More

Nice view, nice location. Super friendly and helpful couple run this place. The cottages are not huge, but are very nice. We had plenty of room for our young family of 8 in the Bison cottage. Rather than eat out we like to cook some of our own meals on vacation, Nice that it had a little kitchenette to save... More

Stayed in the Wolf Den. Can accommodate 4 (one bedroom, one sofa fed in living room), but only 2 of us. Unit is connected to the "office" so we did hear some noise. Not right on river, but just steps away from community deck/hot tub area. Step down, and then up into bathroom was a little award. Kitchen area was... More

The location is perfect for visiting Yellowstone. We stayed in the Moose cottage and it met all of our needs and beyond. For one thing, the cottage was immaculate - I walked around in my stocking feet and the bottoms of my socks stayed white! The strongest WiFi of our trip and DirecTV. Best of all, Eddie and Laura were... More

We stayed here two nights and had a lovely time. Eddie who is one of the owners couldn't of been more helpful and we arrived late in the evening. The room is great and had everything we needed and it's nice to be so close to Yellowstone plus walking distance to a really great grocery down the street.

Comfy beds, great wifi, large LED TV with HD cable, and the Bison Cottage we were in had a full kitchen. Each cottage has off-street parking. Eddie and Laura are genuinely warm and wonderful hosts and insist you let them know if ANYTHING is amiss. They live on-site which made us feel more secure. The work they've put into this... More

We loved this hotel, they are so dog friendly. It was clean and beautiful. The sauna looks over the river and it is the perfect location to get into the park. Not many restaurants but we didn't care about that.

Our family stayed just one night before heading into Yellowstone.
