“Wonderful owners, beautiful setting”
Reviewed August 9, 2013

We stayed in Cabin 1 and it was excellent. Two bed rooms (one queen, two twin) and then a living room and small kitchen. It was very nice for our family of five. The owners do a campfire each night right out front. There is a small pond for fishing (poles are here). In the morning the owners bring breakfast right to your cabin. The best thing about the ranch is the view. Sitting out on the porch drinking coffee with the mountains was a highlight. The entrance to Yellowstone is about 30 min on the east side so it is a great place if you are heading out.

My husband, daughter, and I spent 2 nights at Rand Creek Ranch while leaving the east gate of Yellowstone National Park. The first thing we noticed is how spectacular the scenery is from the ranch. You can see the mountains in front and behind the cabins. The owner and her daughter were very nice and gave us a fantastic recommendation for dinner which was only 3 miles away. We stayed in cabin 1 which has 2 bedrooms (queen/2 singles). There is a small refrigerator, microwave, and coffee maker provided; however, the facilities make it clear that there is no cooking allowed. Each morning we received a bucket with orange juice, muffins, and fruit from the owners! There is no TV but for our stay we had more fun outside. There are trail rides available as well as a paddle boat, kayak, and fishing equipment to use at the small pond. There is a covered grill available for use and nightly bonfires at 8:30pm. We had a great time and would definitely recommend Rand Creek Ranch.

The views at this ranch are beyond beautiful. We spent all our down time from YSNP sitting on the front porch just relaxing and enjoying. Rooms were clean, nicely decorated and very cozy. Enjoyed the nightly campfires talking with the owners.
Entrance to Yellowstone is about 25 minutes from the ranch.
When we were leaving after checking out, we wanted to take a picture under the ranch sign so my husband and I were going to take turns being in the picture with the kids. A big ol pick up truck pulled over and a man jumped out and said "would you like me to take a family picture?" And then asked how we enjoyed our time on Joel's ranch. Wow. Great ending to a wonderful stay in Wyoming.

This was our third stay in a mountain cabin type atmosphere. Measuring against the others it faired very well. Beautiful scenery and several things for the family to do; trail rides with beautiful horses, fish pond, hiking, camp fire, etc. The morning breakfast baskets were homemade and delicious.
All of the people there were extremely helpful and friendly. You need to know that there is NO COOKING in your cabin. The other cabins we have stayed in before this had at least a mini stove/oven, or an electric skillet. They do have a gas grill that is shared among the guests in an area that is set aside for that. I'm sure it is for fire safety concerns, but it would be nice to grill at your cabin. No TV Period! That didn't matter to us, but it might be a concern to others. Overall a very clean well kept place.

We spent two nights at Rand Creek Ranch and we loved it! We were in the middle of a road trip and needed the two nights to unwind and relax, which we did. The kids loved fishing in the pond, not even the rain could stop my son. My daughter enjoyed feeding the horses and spending time on the porch spotting deer and rabbits. Joel and Krystal were great hosts and looked after us well. Due to the rain we were unable to participate in any of the activities, would love to stay during the summer months to take advantage of all the on site activities. Next time! Great place for families, oh and breakfast cakes are delicious.

Room Tip: Halfway between cody and yellowstone. We stayed in Whiskey creek cabin, number 8. Nice and quiet, f...

Pulling up to Rand Creek Ranch we were just blown away. We, and our friends, stayed in Cabin # 6, The Hideaway, and it was just great. Clean, comfortable, quiet, and spacious enough for the four of us. it was just perfect. It being our "home base" for visiting Yellowstone, what a perfect choice. Sitting on the porch taking in the absolutely gorgeous view was amazing. Every a.m., Joel, the owner, would leave a basket of fruit, juice, and baked goods, homemade by his wife Krystal, which was the perfect start to our days. Joel, Krystal, and their workers were so pleasant, helpful, friendly--can't say enough. What a wonderful place to stay!!! We would rate this ranch much higher than A+.

It was a windy, gusty evening with some rain as we headed from Yellowstone to our trailer in Cody State Park. We hadn't set the popup up yet in our eagerness to get into Yellowstone. Wind gusts up to 50 were making us nervous. Then a beautiful rainbow crossed the sky ending at The Rand Creek Ranch. The availability sign was shaking in the wind as we wound our way up to the cabins. What a find! And...they had no problem with our dog. A cowboy in full western dress (normal wear for Wyoming...I'm from the east) showed us the cabin...two rooms, decent sized bathroom, coffee pot and small fridge. Too windy to sit on the porch, but the mountain view from both the front and rear windows was spectacular. In the early AM someone dropped off a "pail" of continental breakfast for two. RCN truly was the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow that blustery night in June 2012.

Room Tip: The cabin on the far left as you face the rand would afford the most privacy. Some cabins are duple...
