Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    Beautiful setting. Feel like you’re nestled in the mountains. Pool area was nicely laid out - plenty of chairs and a fire pit. We went mid-Oct and it was not crowded (about 30 other people). We took our three teenage boys and grandma - we spent about 2.5 hours there on our way to Yellowstone, but could have stayed longer!

    We booked a 2 hour horseback ride at the Stermitz Ranch. Miranda and Mikaela our trail guides are 2 very special young ladies and were truly amazing and made our experience special. Did I tell you we are 2 mid 70 novices? They took us on a beautiful scenic 2 hour ride through back country. What made this especially interesting is their love and knowledge of horses. We thoroughly enjoyed our private tour. It was one of the highlights of our Yellowstone trip!

    Stayed in Gardiner for 3 nights in June. I have been trying to write a review for the Cinnabear Bakery & Deli but couldn't find a listing. So, here it goes:
    Trip west -- a stay in Gardiner, Mt.
    June 20
    The Cinnabear: We stopped to purchase a roll -- but after the bakery was closed. Staff was working on a new venture -- calzone for sale after bakery hours. We were asked to be testers for the product. Well, of course! Staff gave us 2 to take with us, one a pepperoni and the other a chicken mix. We took them back to our hotel to reheat an hour later. They were both excellent. We had leftovers for later. The dough and filling were perfectly balanced...not too much dough. The dough was flaky and done just right, not too dry and nicely browned. The flavor of each one was very good. They also reheated nicely and tasted like they were fresh out of the oven. Would highly recommend giving this place a try for both breakfast rolls and for the calzone.
    We stayed at the Yellowstone Big Rock Inn -- nice place, great location, roomy place to stay for 3 nights.
    We ate at the Cowboy Lodge & Grill for dinner and for breakfast. Adequate place with friendly staff. Dinner was better than the breakfast we chose. Would recommend Gardiner a sa place to stay while visiting Yellowstone...less peole, less confusion than West Yellowstone with everything you need that is easy to find.

    Worth the stop. Consider joining the Yellowstone Heritage Foundation. Very helpful guidance and interesting artifacts

    Pastor Britton Gray always has a refreshing sermon to give and you will always be made to feel at home here. Be warned - this church has a VERY small congregation but welcomes everyone. Very friendly people! It is amazing what all this small church accomplishes, considering its size!😉

    This trail was a bit tricky to find. It is mostly uphill but it is not overly rocky. Good views of the surrounding hills and mountains. Heard a bear and saw bear tracks on the trail on our way back down, they were not there when we went up. Obviously be careful of bears.

    We had a spectacular day with Adam and Peter, our guides! Nine of us rode beautiful horses through the gorgeous mountains. The views could not be beat!

    My wife and I did a float trip down the yellowstone with Cody and he met all expectations and then some. Since this was my wife's first time ever fly-fishing I was wondering how he was going to juggle everything. He had her catching in no time which was a bonus for me because it gave me an opportunity to fish these fabled waters and catch my bucket list native cutthroat trout!

    Six of us (4 adults & 2 teens) did the two-hour ride on Saturday morning, 7/29. As some have said, the road up to Jardine and to the horse corral was an adventure in itself, but nothing a minivan couldn't handle! We arrived about 15 minutes before our scheduled 9:00 ride. Ralph and a couple others were there. J.R. was our guide. He went through the basics of horseback riding with us and then they paired us up with our horses, making sure everyone was comfortable with what they were doing. We headed out into some absolutely beautiful upcountry until we reached a large open meadow an hour into the ride. We then returned via the same trail, as there are no "loops" up there. J.R. was very good at setting a nice pace and keeping an eye on everyone and slowing/stopping as needed when someone's horse wasn't cooperating (be aware that Mouse likes to stop and eat grass a lot if you let him! :-)
    The two hours seemed to pass quickly as the scenery from up there was gorgeous. Everyone really enjoyed the experience.
    Highly recommend the two-hour ride with this outfit!

    There are several smaller shops in town, but this one has the largest selection of souvenirs. They also sell ice cream here. I found this shop to be expensive. I found a few of the same items for less at the smaller shops. The town is so small and easily walkable, so I compared prices before purchasing.

    This was an amazing trip, with knowledge guides. I highly recommend them if you are going to raft in the Yellowstone.
