Best place to stay in the area.
5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 8 Jun 2021
Hands down, YVL is the best of all places to stay in the area. The big selling point is the Yellowstone River flows by (right to left) about 100 yards from your cabin. It's expensive, but very competitive for the region.

Another selling point is the dark, dark night sky. Bring a blueooth shutter release and a tripod for your phone camera for best effect.

Many cabins are duplexes so you can sometimes hear people with a heavy foot walking around. If it's exceptionally quiet you can make out sentences early in the morning. This only happened a couple times. Generally, your schedule will be different from your neighbor and you may never interact at all unless you choose to.

The back deck has a partition that extends about 90%, so you can expect visual privacy, but you can very easily hear each other. By no means should this discourage you from staying. It's entirely possible the could be an empty cabin next to you. The place is so inviting, you may end up making a new friend.

All the staff are as nice as can be, and are hard workers. The entire place is super-clean and I get the impression that everyone working here is very proud of this wonderful little gem.

They serve a very nice breakfast in the mornings with eggs, or sausage, or bacon, or cookies, or muffins. The proximity to the North Gate at Yellowstone is also a good selling point.

We absolutely loved this place and would love to come back to it some day. I almost don't want to tell anyone about it so I can have it all to myself. :)

This is an excellent place to stay. The view is beautiful, the room extremely clean and the staff are kind and friendly. The breakfast is excellent and the coffee better than Starbucks! I will return here!

Close to Yellowstone Park, I wasn't expecting much because candidly so much of nearby Park lodging is just so disappointing. This hotel is an exception. The young couple who run it are very conscientious, friendly and helpful. Their dog made our dogs feel right at home and showed them the way around the place (my one and only complaint would be for them to eradicate the nasty burr weeds on the river hillside!). The cabin was comfortable with a jaw dropping river mountain unobstructed view and private deck space with two chairs. We were very happy here and plan to return on our annual road trip this way!!

This place is simply paradise, with views that cannot be beat, and the sounds of the river and the wildlife serving as a live meditation video. It's in the perfect location, not only for the position right on the river, but also for how easy it was to get into Livingston, Chico, Bozeman, and the park. While I spent most of my stay on site working, the lodge made that incredibly easy. I had fast, stable wifi, and a clean, comfortable room with a kitchenette and even a gorgeous porch in the sun to work on. As a bonus, their complementary breakfast was different every day, and always delicious (highly recommend the muffins!), which always helped to get the day started right.

One of the best aspects of this lodge is it's staff. Every time you pass a member of the crew they are smiling and helpful. They all have great advice about places to visit in the area, and helped to guide me to some new activities and shopping nearby. There is clearly a great atmosphere here among the employees and they use that to make you feel right at home. Additionally, if you're a dog lover, you've found your spot. Maple, the lodge dog (and my favorite employee), can usually be seen helping the staff with their rounds and convincing them to play quick games of catch between tasks.

Do yourself a favor and book a stay here the next time you're in the area. You will remember this place forever!

We stayed in one of the smaller cabins for two. The bed was comfortable with good linens; appreciated the small fridge and coffee maker. Nice continental breakfast included. Great location for Yellowstone National Park, Livingtton and various hot springs. Staff were all friendly, helpful and responsive. Would stay again!

Room tip: every cabin has a view

This was our secend visit this year. Both excellent. We returned with family on second visit. Both the large and small cabins were spotless, comfy beds/pillows, great linens, good internet, and decks very private, and HVAC works great. Everything updated and modern with good internet. Relaxing on the deck overlooking the Yellowstone River with the mountains as backdrop is the peaceful or fun momemt you will stash away in your memory for years to come. Danielle and Kevin are amazing hosts that bend over backwards to make your stay perfect. And then there is the bonus of the destination restaurant Yellowstone Valley Grill. Who knew the best sashimi I've had in years would be in the middle of Montana with amazing entrees to follow. The wine list, perfect and so well priced. Wish I was back.
