The Bison Home at the West Yellowstone Wildlife Cabins is ideal for anyone visiting Yellowstone who wants a kitchen and a comfortable bed to come back to each night. The owners, Cynthia and her husband are very friendly and helpful. When I called to say I could not connect to the Wi-Fi available to guests, she immediately reset the router for me and I had no problems connecting after that.
The rooms in the Bison Home are nicely decorated and very homey. The mobile home itself seems a bit rickety, but nothing too serious. The kitchen is well equipped and has a refrigerator and gas stove for making affordable meals. The living room is spacious while the bedrooms are a little cramped, but you really only spend your nights in the bedroom. My husband and I did do a little elbow fencing, but once we decided to avoid certain positions the double bed was big enough. The windows don't all close completely, some left small cracks, but that certainly wasn't an issue in the summer. Overall, the mobile home seemed to have a few years of life left in it, but you could tell that it had experienced some hard days.
The surrounding town of West Yellowstone is very touristy and fun. There are tasty restaurants and gift shops with a Yellowstone theme. Its location is ideal as it is literally about three minutes from the gate at the West Entrance of Yellowstone National Park.
I liked best the location and comfort of coming home to a small house each night. I don't think I could stay a week in Yellowstone and camp. We got too exhausted hiking around in the heat of each day. It was a relief to have a bed to come home to and we saved money not eating out every night. I liked least the run-down look of the mobile home, but the furniture and decorations are nice enough that you don't notice it as much.
