Crevice Mountain Lodge

She was able to accommodate our 11 people and still have space for more! I was very impressed! Her food is delicious. She had everything we needed down to the marshmallows for the kids. There is many things to do to keep you entertained. Our little vacation was perfect.

We stayed at Crevice Mountain Lodge for a week in July and had a wonderful time. The log cabins are very authentic and our two small boys (8 and 3) loved the bunks in our cabin (Columbus). The location is absolutely superb - right on top the mountain with fabulous views across Yellowstone only a minute or two walk away from the cabin. The owner Cheryl is an outstandingly kind, generous and patient lady and we are massively in her debt for making sure we had the most amazing holiday in her property.

She is also a really good cook, providing healthy home cooked meals which we all thoroughly enjoyed. Fellow visitors should check out her cookbook which contains really interesting stories of her childhood days as well as her paintings - a really talented woman.

The Lodge is perfectly situated for exploring YNP. We really enjoyed the hot tub, and the fantastic light pollution free evenings with the most amazing night sky you will ever see. Wildlife thrives around the lodge - Mountain Bluebirds, Rufous Hummingbird, Steller's Jay and Dusky Grouse to name a few of the species we saw. One word of warning for fellow travellers - you will need either a front wheel drive or 4 wheel drive vehicle to get up the road to the lodge (both will comfortably achieve it). Our manual rear wheel drive car was not up to the task.

Cheryl also helped us to arrange a trail ride (at the neighbouring Hell's A Roarin operation). Our eldest son relished this experience and will carry these memories with him for a long time after we return to the UK.

Thank you again Cheryl for allowing us to have such a wonderful holiday, and we hope to return again before too long.

This is a place to escape all cares & woes of daily life. The trip up the 10 mile dirt road is just the beginning of the adventure. Once reaching the top of the mountain you have the feeling of homesteading in the old west. Our cabin was clean with private shower, wood burning stove, coffee pot & plenty of blankets. Our home cooked meals were plentiful, delicious & served buffet style. Cheryl is the most gracious host, opening her home to us every morning & evening. It was a time to sit & get to know the other guests. We felt so at home after the first day that it seemed natural to get a cup of coffee from the kitchen or bus your own dishes. The chickens, 3 cats & 1 dog were a special treat. Our daughter son-in-law & 2 grandkids met us there. The boys loved the wide open space, freedom to run unrestricted & the campfires at night. Thank you Cheryl for a most memorable vacation.

After staying at Crevice Mountain Lodge for five nights, five beautiful sunsets, five great breakfasts and five fabulous dinners, I could only tell our friends at home that it was ridiculously perfect for us! My husband and our nine year old son planned our trip to Yellowstone together, but I was in charge of the full week of accommodations. Lucky for us all of the lodges inside the park were booked and I found CML. I was nervous as we drove up the road to get there, but it was just what I hoped for. It is a little bit of a drive to get there on ten miles of gravel road, but after a few trips you barely notice it, other than the great views. Cheryl is such a good host you feel like you are staying at a friend's place. The food is simple, but tasty and plentiful and served family style in the main lodge. We would not have enjoyed our stay as much if it weren't for the social aspect of sharing meals and company with the other guests and their kids.

The cabins are simple, but have all the basic amenities. Bring you own soaps and shampoos, but there are towels and even tableware if you plan to have some meals or snacks in your cabin.

If ever possible, I would definitely stay with Cheryl again!

Room Tip: The cabins are far enough apart that you have privacy wherever you stay. Our cabin faced the main lo...

The excitement mounts as you climb the road up the mountain, as to what awaits ahead. Peace, tranquility, calm and beauty. A great place to unwind and know life as it should be. Wonderful home cooked meals, friendly pets and a gracious host in Cheryl. You can quickly get spoiled! Our cabin was so cute and cozy! Lots of fun for our family of four (a teen son and daughter) and at the end of the day, a beautiful sunset! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Crevice Mountain Lodge. The only drawback was that we couldn't stay longer!

My family of 4 - 2 daughters age 10 and12 - spent a night on top of the world at Crevice Mountain Lodge. After the fun ride up the mountain, full of bumps and turns, we were greeted by Cheryl and her dog, George. She showed us to our cabin and the adventure began. We spent the evening playing badminton, hiking, eating a GREAT home-cooked dinner and then enjoying an after dinner hike led by Cheryl to a spot with an expansive view of Yellowstone and the lower valleys. My daughters enjoyed the board games and cards in the cabin and especially the time with Cheryl's dog and cats. It was nice to spend an evening of our 10 day vacation away from the tourists and truly enjoying the peace and quiet of Big Sky country. It was a part of our vacation that won't be forgotten!!

We took our first family trip out West this summer, and we had the great luck to stay at Crevice Mountain Lodge. In planning our trip, I had hoped to stay at a (fancy) guest ranch in Big Sky the whole week, but it was too expensive, so I looked for another option for two nights. I was so glad I did. Crevice Mountain Lodge was Montana at its best! The most homey, beautiful, comfortable place. Having read the other reviews, I was concerned about the road (I have a strong fear of heights), but save one or two spots near the bottom, it was not at all scary or difficult to drive. And the views on the way up are SPECTACULAR. The cabins are clean and very simple/rustic, but quite comfortable. Cheryl is kind and accommodating. My kids were in heaven, playing with George the gentle dog and the bonus 2 kittens! They loved the fire pit at night. We never did get to see the stars, because the sun sets so late! I will say that getting up to the lodge from Gardiner took about 40 minutes each time, which for us meant that once we headed up for dinner, we stayed put. But we were more than happy to do so, just a 15 minute walk will give you a view of Yellowstone that is not to be believed. I was so sorry to leave!
