I took a spontaneous solo trip to Yellowstone and this was the perfect place to stay. Laura and Eddie take great care of the place and are super helpful, it's right by the base of the park and they have a hot tub to unwind in under the stars after a long day of hiking. Highly recommend :)

And just like last year it was again a great stay for a good price and close to Yellowstone. We had the Moose Cottage. The cottage was spacious, very nicely furnished and equipped. Eddie and Laura are super nice and helpful. Eddie and Laura thanks.

My wife and I spent 3 nights here and it was one of the best decisions for our trip to Yellowstone. First, the location is five minutes from the north entrance of the Yellowstone Park (in fact you can see the Roosevelt Arch from your cottage). Secondly, the cottages are located right on the bank of the Gardner River which... More

The name says it all. They are right above the river, and you can see the Roosevelt arch from the property. We stayed 4 nights, three in the fox room and one in the trout room.

We feel so fortunate to have stayed here. I booked our stay close to our arrival at a busy time of year. Laura was able to find us three nights in three different cottages.

Brilliant value for money here, lovely location overlooking the river, plenty of food options within walking distance or a small supermarket handy if you want to eat in. Lovely hosts, and perfectly placed for exploring the Northern parts of the park. The rooms aren't huge but the beds are comfortable and you'll be so tired out from your adventures that... More

We had a wonderful cottage overlooking the river with it own balcony. There was a fully equipped cooking area and a large fridge freezer. Our hosts were really friendly and helpful and the hot tub was great. So close to Yellowstone without the markup on prices. Free WiFi too. Great stay.

Our extended family stayed at Riverside during our 3 day trip into Yellowstone National Park. The quite atmosphere and excellent location suited our needs perfectly! We loved the convenience to the Roosevelt Arch entrance (without having to stay in the park itself, which seemed like it could've been too crowded for our liking). As a bonus, the kids AND grandparents... More
