We're a small, off-the-beaten-path collection of contemporary cabins and one exceptional five-star gourmet restaurant, tucked along the banks of the Yellowstone River on a ranch style property in the Paradise Valley of Montana. Our passions: Falling asleep to the sound of the river (we've also got a weak spot for high-count linens, fly-fishing, and microbrews—you'll see.), anything locally grown (if Chef Marcos prepares it, it's good) and showing off Yellowstone National Park (and the Valley's other endless outdoor opportunities). With our local knowledge, upscale amenities, and taste for both fine food and outdoor adventure, we're a natural base for your Yellowstone-area experience.

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.

The pictures are only exceeded in deception by the manager. We arrived to find the product they are selling was not going to fit our needs. The manager decide to charge us a $300 fee to cancel our reservation. It was a short interaction, but convinced me immediately that there was no way I was letting my family stay at this facility. The pictures make these tiny cabins look huge. The restaurant was locked up tight. We had to search for someone to talk to, and then he turned out to be a complete thief. The grass around the river is not mowed to allow access, and the water is moving to rapidly to be safe. I have stayed in cabins like these before at a price point of only $80 per night, in a much more attractive setting. This setting had the constant sound of traffic zooming by at 55 miles per hour. Certainly not worth the price they are charging to stay there, let alone the price they are charging not to stay there. Do NOT waste your time and money on this low life.

Our cabin was beautiful. Very well appointed, spacious and comfortable. The River view from our large deck was amazing. The complimentary breakfast was top notch and dinner at the Yellowstone Grill was outstanding. The service was exceptional and everyone went out of their at to be helpful.

Stayed in a cabin. You share a wall. It was clean and nicely updated. Couldn’t get over the view out the slider and on the deck! Breakfast was good, dinner was pretty good. Staff was helpful. Quick drive to YNP.

BEAUTIFUL location! We had a two bedroom cabin right on the Yellowstone River where we could fish and swim right off our back deck. Management was always helpful and responsive and even provided us with a free room upgrade. Location is perfect for fly fishing various spots along the Yellowstone and Livingston is a short drive for groceries and restaurants. Breakfast at the Lodge each morning was homemade and the Yellowstone Valley Grill was EXCELLENT! The food at the Grill was by far the best food of our entire 10-day trip.

We stayed four nights in a 2 bedroom/2 bathroom cabin, which was perfect for two adults and two kids (10 and 14), and had a wonderful time! The location is great: 20 mins to downtown Livingston, 30 mins to Yellowstone, and 40 mins to Bozeman. The cabins were tidy and the beds were comfy. The kitchenette contains a fridge, microwave, toaster oven, coffee pot, dishwasher, and dishes. We were bummed there wasn't a stove since we brought our own coffee accessories to enjoy the coffee we picked up in Bozeman, but we made do with using the coffee pot to boil water. Get yourself out on the deck and enjoy the morning and the view! Breakfast was phenomenal (thank you, Lisa!) and some of the items we devoured were the breakfast pizza, apple fritters, pancakes, huckleberry cinnamon rolls, egg scramble/casserole, and the breakfast sandwiches. The cabin does share one side of walls with one other cabin. Our neighbors were loud until 11:30pm one night, but it only affected me as a light sleeper. (Story of my life.) The emailed guide we got ahead of our stay was super helpful to have. The cabin also contained a paper version as well. We booked horseback riding well in advance and made sure to visit some of the local establishments listed and did the hike to Pine Creek Falls (with borrowed bear spray from the office). Kevin and Danielle are friendly and welcoming. A good thing to note is that the office closes at 7pm so be sure to arrive with enough time to check in. Also, book early and stay before peak season! We had to adjust our trip by a week due to a kid activity conflict and we were able to reschedule without issue since we visited on the earlier side of the season.

Our stay was absolutely amazing. The scenery is beautiful. The cabins are cute. We stayed in a 2 bed/2bath. My only complaint would be that the couch and beds weren’t very comfortable. However The view from the back porch was breathtaking and relaxing. We enjoyed seeing some animals in the morning as we were drinking our coffee. It was nice they had onsite laundry facility so we could wash our clothes. The staff is very friendly. My son and I caught a stomach bug during our travels. Unfortunately it hit us the day we checked in. We are grateful the kitchen staff was able to accommodate us. Thank you again! My husband and father in law said the food was good. We ate dinner 2 nights here and breakfast every morning. We have already recommended this place to our friends.

Great location approx 35 miles north of Yellowstone north entrance. Cabins were very comfortable had great furnishings especially for storage. Backyard patio has a great view of the Yellowstone River and mountain backdrop. "Continental" breakfast was more than just pastries, hot breakfast and homemade bake goods were available. Lisa, the breakfast chef was fantastic! All the staff was equally nice and welcoming. Would definitely stay here again. Best time of the year to go to Yellowstone, because the park was not at all crowded.

From the outside, the cabins look humble, but inside they are very modern and comfortable, if not very large. But you don't come to Yellowstone to sit in your room! The deck outside is perfect for watching the river and mountains. They will lend you bear spray for your hike. My only complaint is that the people in the cabin next door smoked out on their deck. I don't know if this is a non-smoking property or not, but I would encourage making it smoke-free.

My husband and I stayed here one night while vacationing in Montana in September, 2022. Our room and beds were very comfortable and immaculately clean. The patio is very private with a beautiful view of the mountains and Yellowstone River. All the people who work here were very welcoming and pleasant. We ate in the restaurant for dinner and breakfast. The food was very good, but not really what we were looking for. We would have preferred more mid range ($30 -$40) entrees with vegetables included than the unusual configuration of food that we encountered. The included breakfast was good. We did enjoy sitting around the fire pit with a glass of wine before dinner. This hotel and location is worth the drive from Livingston.
