My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights during our trip to Yellowstone. We stayed in the deluxe efficiency room (#12). The room itself is small but had everything we needed for a comfortable stay. It also had a private balcony looking out on the river and you could see the Roosevelt Arch. We were able to relax in...

I apologize for the slow shower drain and the delay getting it resolved. It has now been corrected. I am working with our internet provider to determine why this room is not receiving a signal. We have had internet in that room before so it is a mystery why the room is a dead zone now. We are glad you...

We stayed in room 13 which was a family suite. It had the BEST view over looking the river and mountains! We had our own balcony and loved every minute of our stay. The cottage was SO nice. It had a small kitchen, double cooktop stove, full size refrigerator, microwave, dishes, pots and pans, etc. It had a lofted area...

This is my second time visiting and it is still as great as I remember. Excellent location, great hosts, and pet friendly. You cannot go wrong. The property had been updated since my first visit, and this time my mom and I stayed in one of the suites. Great kitchen and aminities. Perfect for day trips to Yellowstone.

Thank you for staying with us again. We have made a few changes since your last visit and we are pleased you enjoyed one of our newest units overlooking the Yellowstone River. We are very fortunate that we are so close to Yellowstone, restaurants, and the grocery store. We look forward to your next visit.

Eddie and Laura were the perfect hosts. From check-in to check-out they were always there to answer questions and give dining and travel tips. We stayed in the trout efficiency.

Stayed here a few weeks ago. Was in one of the balcony suites. The view was amazing. The suite was perfect. There is not one bad thing I can say about the place. Better than I thought it could be.

We loved our cabin! It was very clean, came with a full kitchen, and had a large bathroom. The owners are really nice, and had great advice on places to spot wildlife in the park. Less than 5 minutes to the north Yellowstone entrance, and a quick 3 min. walk to the grocery store. Bonus: sitting in the hottub on...

This may not be the newest place to stay in Gardiner, but the quality of the rooms, cleanliness, and superb attention to detail by the owners make it a place to return to.
