We stayed here a few years ago(maybe even 2010) and it has served as a cautionary experience when booking a place to stay from the internet. It is not really conveniently located to Yellowstone(getting there through Cooke City takes way too much time if you plan on spending the day at Yellowstone) but it is by the Chief Joseph and Beartooth scenic highways. The pictures show a secluded cabin but the reality is that it is within a compound of other 2nd homes---complete with kids zooming by on ATV's at all hours of the day and night. The view from the front porch is excellent and my family had a great fire in the front yard w/the mountains in the background. Deer in the front yard were a cool sight. However, we were very disappointed with the condition of the inside. There was a full bowl of dog food in the middle of the floor when we arrived and the furniture was nasty---the green velor' couch from 1962 was classic. We also found many personal items left out in plain sight in the bedrooms---aside from photos--not a big deal--the KY jelly on the dresser made us all sleep in our sleeping bags on top of the mattresses purchased during the Eisenhower administration. Clanliness is clearly not a priority. We had been camping for much of this trip and are not usually very fussy---but we used our own cooking utensils and towels----bummer. Also,if you want to go to the river, you have to trespass on someone else's property---this is not stated in the advertisement. There is really nothing of significance that is close by to this place---everything is a long drive. Overall, we were very disappointed in this property and felt that the $175(now they charge $225???) was not worth the money. When we brought these issues up with the booking agent, they could have cared less. My family reminds me of Holler's Hideout every time I say I booked through the internet. Renter beware!
