Stayed for just 1 night on our 11 night road trip from Las Vegas to Denver. What a great choice. Was able to correspond with the owner Greg prior to booking which was appreciated, to ensure the available room suited our needs. Thorough check-in, and then after some very specific tips on the best off road places to see wildlife in Yellowstone, we left and indeed were successful in seeing everything we wanted to (except a bear!). Despite returning after 8pm, Greg had stayed to give us all a calf lassoing lesson. He was very patient and my 2 teenage daughters thought he was cool. I requested some ice, which was produced quickly, but I would suggest a small ice machine would be appreciated by guests who have forgotten to make a request before the reception closes for the evening about 9pm. Accommodation was exactly as described, with good controllable aircon and furnished to a high standard. Beds were comfortable and we slept well. Breakfast was healthly, organic and slightly quirky, geared towards health conscous "eco" types. This is a great place to stay for North Yellowstone, but the star of the show is the owner Greg, a great host, sincere and passionate about his hotel and the surrounding area.
