My husband & I stayed 12 nights in cottage #7. The owner Laura greeted us with a hug and smile and she and her husband Eddie extended a welcome as if we were long lost friends ! The cottage was sparkling clean, the beds comfortable and nice sheets and comforters. The kitchen had all we needed to put together a meal and a small frig was just the right size to store perishables. A big flat screen tv with ports for cameras to review our day's photo expeditions and satellite channels if we wanted to watch programs. A really neat, automatic gas heater that looked like an old fashioned wood stove kept us warm and cozy. The bathroom has a big tiled shower, lots of hot water and good water pressure. a storage cabinet held our toiletries. There is daily housekeeping service for towel replacement, toilet paper and trash removal. Mikhail took care of our cottage and was as pleasant as could be. We both had a stomach virus at the beginning of our stay and I have to mention that the excellent plumbing and replacement of toilet tissue was really, really, appreciated. Plus Laura and Eddie offered to help in any way they could ! Turned out we were only down a total of 2 days staying in and if I had to be sick I'm grateful it was there ! The location is perfect; a few steps from the local grocer, Farmtown, which is a bit pricey, but has a great selection of produce and organics. Also the North Entrance Arch is only a 5 min. drive and 5 mi. to Mammoth Hot Springs. There is a hot tub which is kept exceptionally clean and you can actually see the Arch from the tub ! A nice deck with chairs, tables, and loungers is very pleasant. The cottages are right above the Yellowstone River and there stairs that go all the way down. At night it is very quiet. The prices are quite reasonable and overall this place is amazing ! Laura and Eddie are always on property and always willing to provide whatever helps make your stay more pleasant, altho' I don't think it could be any more so ! We will definitely book our stay here when we are fortunate enough to return to Yellowstone, a place we love, along with the Riverside Cottages & Laura and Eddie !
