Only stayed for one night, while passing through. Just 30 miles from the West Entrance to Yellowstone. Check-in was a breeze. Owner very pleasant. Each cabin had 2 guest rooms. We stayed in one with 2 queen beds (mattresses too soft for us). The beds took up most of the room. Couple wooden desk chairs to sit on, otherwise had...

$365 Mistake. I made this reservation by mistake. Was looking for a lodge close to Jackson Hole and this property popped up. The price was good and the pictures were nice, so I booked this property for 2 nights from Sept 22nd 2016. After I have checked directions I realized that property is somewhere 300+ miles away from Jackson Hole...

Beautiful setting, with great views all around!! The cabin was well kept, stocked with toiletries, coffee, creamer, etc! Beds were comfortable, and everything was very clean! It was conveniently located between Cody and Yellowstone, which was perfect for us!

From the moment we made our reservations, 6 months earlier, we knew we were going to enjoy our stay here. Patty Jo was a joy to deal with,always answering any question we had about our cabin and upcoming stay. Our two children enjoyed their time here as well as there is plenty of space for them to run around. There...

We choose this ranch, although relatively expensive, as it advertises with horse riding opportunities and our 11 year granddaughter loves that more than anything else in this phase of her life. At arrival we were told the horses were up in the mountains and there were horse riding opportunities in town (Cody) - 15 minute drive away. As we are...

So I wasn't very certain what to expect. We were wrapping up dinner in Cody around 9:45pm and I got a call from Patty Jo asking us our status, since the office normally closes at 10. We got there around 10:15 and Patty Jo was waiting for us (having put our two cabins next to each other to make our...

We wanted a non-motel place to stay outside of Yellowstone's east entrance for our recent trip. This place is on the way to Cody and is less than an hour away from the main park. The view out there was amazing! The staff was so helpful and friendly when we had trouble finding the place. The bed here was the...

The pictures don't do justice to the beauty of Red Pole Ranch. It is right across the road from the Shoshone River, and you can see the lake in the distance from the cabins as well. The surrounding mountains are gorgeous. The people were great, and the room was spacious, cute, and clean.
