Fifty-two years married and at last a Honeymoon Suite!!! We were on our three-week tour of the West to include Yellowstone National Park and decided to book two nights at the Yellowstone Basin Inn. What luck! The Inn is about five miles from the north entrance to the park and is a very convenient base for exploring the northern part of it. We were greeted by Gregg Strauss (he and wife Sabrina own the Inn) who gave us a comprehensive welcome to the area and after we got settled in our very comfortable and well equipped suite he gave us advice on what to see and where to go. His knowledge of the Park is comprehensive and he was able to advise on walks, wildlife etc. We resisted his suggestion to get up at 5.00a.m. to go and see wolves. Our room was very comfortable and it was a delight to sit out on the balcony and admire the scenery. Hot breakfasts are included in the prices but it's a case of fend for yourself after that. This is not a big chore as there is quite a good grocery store in Gardiner and having the kitchen meant we did not have to take up Gregg's recommendations on local restaurents. Altogether this is a welcoming and convenient stop over while exploring the local area. Gregg even offered us fishing equipment!!
