My extended family and I stayed in 3 cottages for a week in early August. We had an outstanding time. The owners, Eddie and Laura, were very warm and helpful. My father is disabled and they made sure his room was accessible. They were also helpful with suggesting places to see inside and outside the park. The location on the... More

We had such a wonderful experience and the owners, Laura and Eddie, were so very helpful and kind! The location is great and it was so close to the Park. The town of Gardiner is so nice, complete with elk and friendly people. At Riverside, we loved the views and the grill and the hot tub was so relaxing! Great... More

The Riverside Cottages are a great option at the north entrance to Yellowstone. The motel is right on the river. Even if you have a room not on the river you will find there is a deck providing a great view. Besides the location on the river, it is right in town. It is a short walk to a dozen... More

We are a family of 5 and the cabin accommodated us perfectly for our two nights at the North Entrance of Yellowstone NP. Rustic charm on the outside, and comfy updated rooms on the inside. The riverside deck and hot tub is nice plus. It was very comfortable and conveniently located to the park entrance as well as the grocery... More

Stayed in cottages 1 (queen bed w/loft), and 3 (queen bed). Both cottages were furnished the same except for the loft (bunk bed). There was a microwave, small refrigerator, and Directv service in both cottages. There is parking right outside the cottages. The cottages are centrally located allowing walking to almost all parts of Gardiner. There is a hot tub... More

We stayed here one night and really enjoyed the cottage/cabin. We stayed in number 7 and slept extremely comfortably as there were two queens and two twin lofts. Beautiful view of the river from the hot tub and stargazing at night was amazing! Greeted warmly by the owner upon arrival and she walked us through the property and described the... More

Stayed here 2 nights. First night was in a larger cottage connected to the office. 2nd night we stayed in a less nice cottage. Overall it was really ok. Great proximity to North entrance of park. Felt safe. My 16 and 14 year old daughters enjoyed being able to go down the steps and then use a rope to get... More

Stayed here one night as part of week-long trek to Yellowstone. We had one of the deluxe efficiencies with a private deck overlooking the river. My daughter slept in the Murphy bed overhead.

Riverside Cottages is a wonderful place to stay. The rooms are nice and it is right on the river. My wife and I love the sound of the water. A big part of the charm were the managers Eddie and Laura. They were very welcoming and helpful ... and they talk to you like you are their best new friend.

My husband and I just stayed in one of the cabins for two nights and loved it! Afternoon drinks on the deck, early morning dips in the hot tub, and wonderful hospitality by the owners. Can't recommend this enough.
