We stayed in a beautiful cabin and enjoyed very much. The place is awesome, with a beach on the Yellowstone River and a herd of elks just outside the cabin when you wake up. Charissa was very kind and also offered us delicious desserts

For a variety of reasons, Headwaters is a terrific B&B within five minutes of Yellowstone's north entrance. First and foremost, the owners are terrific. They know the park backwards and forwards. Not only do they both work in Yellowstone, but Tim is the chief ranger and Charissa grew up in the area. Tough to find more knowledgeable hosts. They are... More

We would highly recommend Headwaters B and B. The owners are terrific and because they work in Yellowstone you get a real insiders view. They are gracious and friendly and you get a taste of the real Montana experience. Great views of the river and mountains from your back door. Lots of good restaurants close by.

We had the pleasure of staying here for four nights. Charissa and her husband Tim both work in the park which is a great help and very informative. The best part is the hospitality, you feel welcomed the minute you step in the door. We were in The Trout room and then the Elk, both were very clean and comfortable,... More

We found our hostess to be unlike any we have encountered. She owns the open, friendly, welcoming atmosphere that led to her guests treating each other like old friends. Charissa creates fine, well-prepared breakfasts and offers interesting conversation about Yellowstone, enhanced by the work experiences there of herself and her husband, Tim. The setting, right along the Yellowstone River, offers... More

The 5 extra minutes of drive time to get to this B&B just beyond main street in Gardiner is well worth it. Right along the river, the view from the house is beautiful.
