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. I will remember this trip for 1) the fantastic and friendly reception by the owners, 2) time spent on the deck and 3) that the rooms are... More

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.

What a wonderful place to stay! My sister and I felt safe and at home here. It is right on the river with a walkway down to the water and a hot tub/ sitting areas with a view as well. The owners were so nice and treated us like guests instead of tourists. They showed us around and told us... More

My husband, 2 daughters & I stayed at Riverside Cottages for 2 nights during our trip to Yellowstone. We stayed in Unit 14, which has been completely updated and has a perfect view of the river. The proximity to the north entrance of the park is great...if we had known that, we probably would have stayed longer! The property is... More

We stayed here with three other couples on a motorcycle trip. Gotta say, was a very pleasant experience. The cottages were very cute, with a great view of the river. The innkeepers were extremely nice and very helpful! The only downside was the soft bed...but some may like that.

Thank you for staying with us. We enjoyed having your group. Sorry the bed was too soft for you - we order our beds for a "medium" firmness from a local company in Bozeman. We are pleased you enjoyed the deck and view of the river. If you are traveling this way in the future we hope you will consider... More

We were really looking forward to our stay here because of the positive reviews on TripAdvisor and the very pleasant correspondence while making our reservation. I agree with other reviewers that the owners of this property are very nice people and that the location is great in terms of distance to the Yellowstone entrance and Gardiner amenities. However, we stayed... More

We are sorry your stay was not to your satisfaction. We will certainly address the cleaning standards and we wish we had been aware of your concerns during your stay. Our walkway is steep and we added the rope at the end to give a little stability on the rocky river's edge. We will strive to do better. More

The outside facade of the cottages may not have been what we were expecting when we arrived, but the interior of the cottages were awesome! Rustic, cozy, well-equipped and clean. Laura has added many 'little touches' to make the cottages even more appealing...hot tub, deck overlooking the river, bear spray on loan. The location to the Yellowstone north entrance was... More
