The website for this place does not do it justice. I stayed with my family (7 of us) in Shirley's Bells and this cabin was beautiful. The view from the porch is amazing! You can definitively see Mammouth and the opening gate to Yellowstone. I read some reviews were people were complaining about the hard water smell - they must...

Stayed in the Shirley Bells' cabin and the view was just awesome. A perfect place to stay to visit northern areas of Yellowstone. We stayed here for all of our 5 day Yellowstone vacation and enjoyed the extra driving to the southern park areas watching for wildlife along the way. The cabin was clean and spacious. Nice kitchen , 3...

Two years ago we had dinner with friends who were staying in the Mansion and were very impressed with the location and house. When we went back this summer we booked 4 nights there and wouldn't have traded it for anything! Yes, the road is a little steep and can be a little "washboard" in some places, but the views...

We stayed in the Rich cabin for two nights. Clean, clean, clean... plenty of towels. This is like a two bedroom home more than a cabin. We even used the gas grill provided on the deck overlooking great scenery. It was great to relax with comfort and room like home. I even enjoyed the special touch of candles.

I was a bit leary in making this reservation based upon some of the previous negative comments but I was pleasantly surprised! We stayed in the Shirley Bells cabin and we had a great experience. PROS - Great location looking down on Gardiner, the Yellowstone River, and the NW entrance to the park. - The cabin (house actually) has plenty...

This was the best place to be if your going to Yellowstone. We stayed in Rich's cabin with our four children. It was situated perfectly with a small dirt road leading to the cabins so that we felt like we were out in the wilderness, yet only 10 minutes from Gardiner, which has stores, grocery, gas, and restaurants. The Elk...

I have been taking my family to Above The Rest Lodge every summer for the past 10 years. We have stayed in all of the cabins, and have enjoyed each and every stay. I have recommended Above The Rest to many of my friends and co-workers, and all have been pleased with the cabins, the surroundings, and the beauty. These...

We tried to stay a week at Above the Rest Lodge in Gardiner Montana and ended checking out after one night. The cabin was dirty, no linnens were clean, the owner was not hepful at all. The cabin was in POOR repair. Not at all what is seen on the web site. I would not advise anyone to consider this...

Steph's Cabin was nothing like the information we found on the internet indicated. Old beat up house. The front yard is full of weeds. No TV as indicated (broken?). No pillow cases, no bedding for the extra cot we requested. Coffee pot full of mold. The only bedroom was full of flying bugs from the torn window and slider screens....

During a recent jaunt through Grand Teton and Yellowstone we were in awe at so many vistas of surpassing beauty. But the best was saved for last. On our last day - May 19, 2004 - we overnighted at Above the Rest Lodge (in "The Nest"). All I can say is that the vistas from the huge deck are spectacular!...
