Booked location due to travel to Yellowstone. Not expecting anything special but found this gem of a place. Room very spacious with kitchenette. Breakfast was good but could use some hot foods. Location great with beautiful view. Stayed in Cleveland room.

We stayed at the River House - perfect for the four of us, plenty of room and privacy for my husband and I and our daughter and her boyfriend. Beautiful view, clean and cozy!

I've been dreading writing this review for months now, because the experience was so unpleasant and my attempt to discuss the issues with the owner went so poorly, but I feel I should give others ample information to help them make the best decision for their needs. I won't be one bit surprised if I get a nasty response to... More

It is true that we do not have A/C in our downstairs rooms, but the guest fails to mention that it was 61 degrees. As far as traffic on the highway goes, there is travelers going to and from the park in the morning and evening, but in the middle of the night there is very little traffic. The guest... More

We stopped here on our way to Yellowstone, not far from Cody. We stopped for breakfast which was very good, all homemade. The staff was very friendly and had helpful tips about the area. We talked to several families staying there in cabins and lodge. They said it was clean and either they have family trips here or others said... More

The breakfast was supposed to be included but 8:59 AM was too late....the deadline was 9....after the receptionist is on duty at the grocery store (business is business, they don't care of clients)....Just one recommendation: Cowboy,...

We looked for a room on the scenic drive and the past reviews guided us to this lodge. We checked in without getting into the room, and had dinner close by. After dinner, we came back but could not find our room in the dark. The checkin counter was closed & we could not find anyone to ask. We tried... More

We stayed here for three days in August. The property was very nice. We stayed in the River House. There were three adults and one teen. There were two bedrooms down stairs (when you enter) and also a full bath. Upstairs there was a full kitchen and living area with a day bed/trundle and a half bath. There were two... More

Stayed here with my family for two nights. The rooms were large to fit a family of five. The staff on site were great and we shared many stories over a campfire. Breakfast is available on site. The rooms were up to date and well appointed. Cody is about 20 min away.

We stayed in the Hayden Room. We really like the large space. The kitchen was well stocked and the kids really enjoyed the breakfast. The people who was running the place were real friendly and enjoyed our conversations.

We found this lovely gem last minute through Expedia. We had hoped to find one of the first come first serve campsites available, and I am so glad they weren't because we found the Wapiti Lodge instead.
