“Homey cottage feel with 5 star service and beautiful view.”
Reviewed July 6, 2009

This cute little cottage/village was perfect from the moment we walked in the door we were greeted with a warm welcome smile and superior local service. Eddie showed us pictures of the wildlife that frequents the area and showed us around to the outdoor hottub with a beautiful view of the Yellowstone River in back. When we opened up our door we saw some very cute cottage decor very appropriate for the local area. We spent four wondurful nights at this cottage. This is also perfectly located between the main gas station and the grocery store. Also next door to Montana White Water Rafting for those of you who decide to go rafting. Some packages are sold with rafting and horse-back-riding. The best part of this little cottage/village was the lack of big coorporate motel feel which was wonderful for two newlyweds on their honeymoon. Located convienently in Gardiner was also the NE Enterance to Yellowstone National Park not far from Riverside. All in all we had an excellent stay at Riverside and look forward to our next stay for our one year anniversary.

The owners of this property were very pleasant and helpful with checking in and giving tips about where to dine in town. They also have a pet duck, Lucy, who is very vocal but charming. The cabins sit above the Gardner River; when I was there, a bear was foraging on the riverbank below. The cabins were average but clean. I would stay here again.

My family spent 3 nights this summer at the Riverside Cottages in Gardiner Mt in an efficiency unit.

The owners answer all questions by e-mail or phone to help plan your vacation- they go out of their way for hospitality and try to help in any way they can. Being this was our first time in the area their knowledge of the area and willingness to share was so much appreciated.

The room had a microwave, fridge, and coffee pot to use, plus there is a grill and tables for guests to use. The grocery is within walking distance so we found this a great way to save money as well as wind down a long day by cooking and sitting on the deck and watching the river down below.

There is also a hot tub on an outside deck to soak away those tired muscles from a day of white water rafting( one is next door) , horseback riding or hiking.

They also have a friendly pet goose who my kids loved to feed and be greeted by.

I will definetly stay at the Riverside Cottages again when I return to the area .

The owners are to be commended for their friendly welcoming hospitality.

I stayed there three nights during last may and was very satisfied by the contact with the owners, the informations I got about places to see, things to do in the area.
The room was well equipped including a coffee machine, very useful before leaving early in the fresh morning to watch wild animals in the Yellowstone park.
A place I strongly recommend to people preparing a trip in this region.

In May of 2007 a group of 20 family and friends met to spend a week vacationing at Yellowstone National Park. I organized the group and spent a lot of time looking for a place where we could all be together and also save money by cooking our meals. I chose Riverside Cottage in Gardiner, MT and it was the perfect choice. There are nine units, five are cottages with kitchens and four are efficiency units with coffee maker and microwave. All the rooms were very comfortable and charming and the family suite was large enough for us to gather to eat as was the outside deck with beautiful hot tub. All overlooked the Yellowstone River. Our hosts, Laura and Eddie Cox, are a warm, caring and accomodating couple who made us feel completely at home. We were all sad to leave after our week was up but would definitely return for a future stay.
