We read bad reviews on the lodge and we were very reluctant to make a reservation. No other place - so reserved it any way - over phone - Bill is the owner - Talked to him directly for the reservation.
We arrived in Cooke City on the night of June 29. God save us!!! Before we arrived we called Bill to let him know that we will be late. He assured us not to worry - He did put us on Cabin#7 - the cabin will be kept open for us. When we arrived at 9:30 PM, there was well written (cordial) note on the door of the main office directing us where our cabin is located (behind cabins 3 and 4). The cabin was an elegant one. Two storied (sort of) with 3 queen beds. The kitchenette was very thoughtfully organized. Salt, pepper, dishwashing detergent. Oh! disposable plates too (in addition to China and cooking utensils). Towels and soaps in the bath. Clean, clean, supper clean. Room service was excellent - Thank you young ladies. There was a minor problem with the bedroom lights (- fixed in no time once we told Bill the next day). We felt as if we some relatives of Bill and family.
I will stay every time I go to Yellowstone. Ideally located on the North-east side of Yellowstone. ~5 miles from the gate.
Thanks, Bill, please keep up the healthy tradition. I am recommending the lodge to others already.
Again, it was such a pleasant stay. 5-star treatment by Bill and company.
