We stayed at Hillcrest Cottages in Gardiner MT on 8/12 and 8/13. We had unit A which has two double beds and a single plus a single fold up. We had a family of 5 (2 adults and 3 children ages 5/10/15).
The unit was a 2 bdrm/1 bath cottage - with 2 burner stove, microwave and full fridge and kitchen table. 2nd double bed was in kitchen area. We used the fridge and microwave and they worked well.
Units are extremely clean and servicable - i liked that we had enough beds to put everyone someplace to sleep comfortably. No frills and very basic small cabin unit and the price was right - plus great location in reference to YNP.
We enjoyed the view in front of the cottages facing the park and watching the traffic going to/from the park plus there were picnic tables or benches in front of most units for getting outside and we met a few of the folks staying there and had good conversations with them.
Gardiner is a very small town with not a ton of options for eating, so the stove and microwave can come in handy. Plus the cottages are located across the highway from the Cenex station/Subway and not far from other options to eat or get additional supplies/shopping.
Staff was courteous and helpful.
