Our family of 5 stayed in a 2 bedroom cottage at the Bar-N-Ranch in July 2016. It contained a living room area with a pull-out sofa bed, a small dining area with a sink, mini-fridge and microwave, and one large bathroom between the two bedrooms. Lodging all around Yellowstone Park is very expensive and a lot of lodging options are... More

We stayed 2 nights. First the good. The property and decor are first rate. A western theme on steroids. Nothing cheesy, it works and it was very cool. Room 2 was spacious with a fireplace and jacuzzi tub. Very nice. Now the bad. When we "tried" to check in we had to hunt down the desk staff. He was very... More

Beautiful place. Great room with wonderful amenities. Staff was friendly and helpful. We were very surprised when we pulled up, the place looked nothing like the picture from when we booked. We were pleasantly surprised. Our room was large and the bed was comfortable. Highly recommend!

This is a rustic destination, huge logs throughout the cabin we stayed in that was spacious, looked over a pond that was full of bird life. There was a fire place that had wood provided, it was cool in the evening so I lit the fire which started easily and burned with a lovely warmth and great to gaze into... More

Beautiful ranch style hotel in peaceful surroundings, with good restaurant nextdoor. However staff's attitude could have been more professionnal. Considering the price we would have expected more attention to the needs of the client. Staff wasn't very helpful with local information. We were also made to wait at least 15 minutes outside our room after breakfast for housekeeping to finish.

We will never stay here again. We did not get the cabin we reserved, stayed in a tiny room in the Lodge. Barely any room to move around. We had planned to stay four nights, left after two. The only positive thing about the experience is that we got nearly all of our money back. Bare bones breakfast buffet. I... More

BarN did not meet my expectations. 1. There was no "front desk". Therefore no one to greet you or help you during your stay. The staff hid in a back room and rarely was seen. When I did have an issue and reported it I was asked "do you have a problem" not " how can I help you" 2.... More

Coming from the east coast the simplisty of the life out west took a little getting used to. No air conditioning was weird but we didn't spend any time in the cabin during the day(and the cabins are shaded so we left all the windows open during the day so it was a comfortable temp when we did get back,...

We were looking for somewhere to stay in West Yellowstone in order to visit the Park. West Yellowstone is adjacent to the West Entrance to the National Park. The first thing to say is that Bar N Ranch is not actually in West Yellowstone it's a good 5 or 6 miles West of the town. Added to that we drove... More

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.
