We loved the cabin, and had a fine time even though Yellowstone was closed. Lainie was very kind and accommodating. We hope to return when the Park is open!

We had a wonderful time at the cabin. Our 4 year old fell in love there and cried when we had to leave. The cabin was amazing with beautiful views of the mountains. Thanks for letting us stay and we hope to be back sometime in the future.

We stayed at the cabin in December 2010, and it was exactly what we were looking for! We were very close to the park and the conveniences of Gardiner, but had the luxury of a nice, clean, comfortable cabin with all the amenities we wanted. While we were there it snowed a good bit, but the roads were kept plowed and travel to and from the town and park was not a problem. Thank you so much for sharing your cabin with us. Winter in Yellowstone is magical!

I looked at several listings in this riverside cabin grouping and picked this one for its well-chosen decor, with western art, historic photos, log accents, western motif pillows, etc. It was just as pictured and perfect. Very clean, comfortable, well-equipped and with a lovely view. Very close to the Northern Entrance to Yellowstone, it was perfect for exploring the park, at far less cost than a lodge room. There is a good grocery store and restaurants and shops in Gardiner, but we ate in every night after long days in the park.

We had the pleasure of staying at the cabin last winter over the Christmas Holiday. The cabin was immaculate and just right for our two families who shared it. A trip into the Park is always wonderful and we like to cross country ski on the BlackTail Plateau. I would recommend this cabin and a trip to the Park in the winter.

This vacation was really cool. From playing video games to exploring outdoors. I don’t think Andy (Anna’s brother) enjoyed the outdoors. Instead he likes staying in and being a couch potato. The first day we went rafting. The second day we went horseback riding. The third day we went white water rafting. On the same day we went to the boiling river, and on the last day we saw Old Faithful. All in all, I think this was one of my most favorite vacations.

First Time—Yeah! Cabin Rental Virgins, we saw antelope, elk, deer, coyotes, buffaloes, bunny rabbits, bald eagles, big horn sheep, and best of all, five wolves! Don’t forget to watch the sunset over Electric Peak. . . Purple mountains majesty. Thanks!

Thanks for sharing your camp with us. What a beautiful set up! How perfect is this!? I love how you decorated right down to the Revere Ware. We enjoyed a full moon on a long weekend. Saw lots of animals in the park, weather was fabulous, good food! good friends! We had a wonderful time. Thank you so much. You got it all right here! Very memorable.

We had a fabulous week! The location is stunning, and the cabin is simply teriffic - beautifully decorated. We had many beautiful breakfasts and dinners on the patio. Great luck with the waether, only a couple of short thunderstorms. We hiked 40 miles in six days, exploring much of the northern half of the park. Mt. Washburn is a must see for those who are up to it!

The cabin was great! Enjoyed spending evenings on the patio relaxing, the sound of the river was very soothing. Spent six great days driving and hiking several areas of Yellowstone Park.

Your cabin had everything we needed, including soft mattresses! You never know what you’re going to get; we stayed in a cabin south of Jackson Hole, WY for a couple of nights before we came here and the mattresses were hard, and the kitchen was not nearly as stocked. It had only one skillet! And no microwave or washer and dryer. I could go on and on. . . Of course Yellowstone was awesome. We saw most of the wildlife except for bears and wolves. We hiked and explored and took hundreds of pictures. We loved your educational books and maps. Thank you for giving us our money’s worth, we will be back! P.S.— We appreciate the flexibilty with moving our date around.

Coming from Chicago— Montana has been so unbelievably amazing. The mountains and landscape are so beautiful that the background almost looks unreal! We’ve fully enjoyed this cabin. It is so warm and cozy. It’s location along the river has allowed us many days of fly fishing. My son has caught many fish and even tasted trout for the first time. We loved our stay here and enjoyed family time together. Thank you!!

This cabin is fabulous in every sense of the word—fully stocked with all the comforts of home, immaculately clean, and an unbelievable location. We were able to instantly relax and enjoy all the wonders of Yellowstone. It was great to be able to come back to the cabin at the end of each day. We felt completely at home here and plan to return. Thanks for a great time!

Our trip to Yellowstone was fantastic. The cabin-condo was so comfortable it made the stay even better. The condo is a class act and look forward to coming back. After spending all day enjoying the park and wild life this place was a joy to come back to, only to find more elk right in the front yard. Another 100 head of Elk spent the night in a nearby field, entertaining us with bugles all night. Great place, great time, Thanks a bunch!

Terrific Vacation! Very peaceful; great weather! Allowed for some great hikes/climbs—saw lots of elk, bison; enjoyed the “property dog”, Buster (yellow lab). Thank you,

The cabin was more than we ever hoped for. So beautiful and fully equipped. Would love to come back and stay again and wolf-watch in the winter. Thanks again for a wonderful experience!
—Ray, Risley, Nancy, Louann and John from Texas
The cabin is great and truly met all our expectations! We loved the views of the mountains and the river. We also enjoyed the “property dog” who visited us every day.

The little house in the prairie (literally). I came here with my nine year old son and parents. my parents were coming from France and I, California. I had seen the virtual tour on the internet but I must say, it went beyond our expectations. The last two evenings, we cooked and ate trouts, mountain whitefish caught in the river below. We will be back!

The cabin was great, we all felt like we were at home. The furnishings and accomodations made for a very comfortable place to come to after a day of busy sight seeing. Your maps and books on Yellowstone National Park were greatly appreciated. I especially like the information you put together on Gardiner. Besides all the great places to visit in Yellowstone, we were able to spend a couple of days in the Tetons. We went white water rafting on the Snake (the kids loved it!). We were able to see many animals (Buffalo, elk, grizzly and black bear, coyote, deer, and many other smaller animals). Our favorite places (in no particular order) are the Canyon, Upper Geyser Basin (Old Faithful and others) and the Boiling River just south of Gardiner. This was a wonderful family vacation, we hope to return soon. Thanks,
—Chet, Janet, Tate, and Morgan from Minnesota
What fun! We brought our five foster children here and they experienced the trip of their lifetime. River Rafting, horseback riding, hiking, swimming, wildlife. The cabin was perfect! We will be back.

This has been a great place to come home to for the past three days after hiking some of the most beautiful trails in the world in Yellowstone park. On our first night here we were greeted by a big black bear meandering along the river bank across from the cabin. We enjoyed relaxing on the patio in the eveings (hoping for a return visit by the bear), listening to the elk bugling in the surrounding mountains, and spotting elk and pronghorn on the road. Thanks for sharing your beautiful comfortable cabin.
—Ron and Yvonne, Bonnie Lee and Dick
Thank you so much. The cabin was great! This was our honeymoon and it was perfect! Thanks again!
