Our room was in the main lodge. It was excellent, it included a fireplace and a Jacuzzi tub. There is easy to use WiFi, but no elevator (not an issue for us) We open the window and enjoyed hearing the cows at night.

I am very conflicted about this hotel/lodge. On the one hand, there are areas that are gorgeous: the great room has a wonderful view and the woodwork is amazing. The room was pretty and there were a lot of nice touches. The staff was friendly and helpful. On the other hand, this place is 6-7 miles west of West Yellowstone,... More

This place is living off of old reviews. It was one of the biggest disappointments I've ever experienced in traveling. The lack of cleanliness and maintenance is very evident. We prepaid for two nights and left after one. Enough said.

This bed and breakfast was in a really good location. Our room was excellent. When we went on our back porch that evening a fox was right there. Pretty awesome. However, was very disappointed in the breakfast. Thought it would have been a lot better. Have had better at Holiday Inn. Didn't get to try the restaurant the night before,... More

Their cabins are desperately in need of repair. If you want to use your bathroom, you will either need to prop the door open or hold the door closed with your foot. DO NOT STAY HERE! No door is level so they swing. The cabins have no insulation so it is either really cold or really hot. The windows do... More

Lexi welcomed us. she was very friendly. She helped with some issues that needed repairs. We loved the microwave, refrigerator, fireplace. the hot tub out back.

We stayed in a lodge room facing east (one of two rooms which face this way). I will say the property has some very nice features including comfortable beds and nice common area rooms. It felt to me like they needed to put some more effort / TLC into the lodge - felt like the restaurant and the Yellowstone under... More

Most good reviews here seem to be for the restaurant, which is separate from the lodging / hotel part. The restaurant is fine but we were sorely disappointed with the log cabins where we stayed two nights. The cabins were dirty, with many cobwebs, dirt tracked into the rooms, and bathroom floors which still had bits of paper etc in... More
