"The property is better than the pictures show, Clint should post more. I have stayed almost exclusively at VRBO properties over the last 15 years. I will try to cover things that I wish others would cover on properties that I have not visited. First, the 20-30 minutes to Yellowstone was 30+ for me. I say that because first approached the property from West Yellowstone, and I was getting VERY concerned with the length of the drive, thought I was lost. But it was not bad for the daily commute to YS. Next I had very poor cell coverage on Verizon. I actually liked that, as it made me disconnect more from work, but I just wish I had been better prepared. The cabin is BY FAR the best stocked one that I have stayed in. Pots, pans, glasses, knives, towels, sheets, blankets, pillows, etc, we wanted for nothing. The other HUGE, HUGE plus for me was it was stocked with nearly every spice and condiment you could imagine or hope for. Some places they don't even have salt and pepper. We rent cabins to cook and save money over a hotel. But when you fly and have to buy a bottle of spice and Worcestershire for a couple of steaks, or ketchup, mustard, mayo, etc for one night of hamburgers, sometimes you don't save much. And what's worse, it always seems we forget something simple. We used the last of one or 2 things, but replaced for the next person. Speaking of food, the cabin is in a food desert. We stopped at a bar at the end of the gravel road to ask about a grocery store. Two people working there just looked at us like we were crazy. I changed the question to where do you buy groceries? They both said they drove 1 1/2 hours to Idaho Falls. Not an option for me. The only customer (which had obviously also consumed nearly all of the alcohol in the building) suggested “Robins Roost”. We stopped at a nearby restaurant and asked about grocery stores. Same crazy look from 4-5 people, but another said RR. So off to RR, which is only a couple of miles. RR is one small step above a convenience store. Next to no veggies, and little to no meat. What was there I wouldn’t eat. There are 2 grocery stores on Google in W. Yellowstone. Both are really small. We shopped (sorry forget the name) at one that was 1 block off the main drag. Well stocked. The most important thing NOT mentioned is... the doors can open from the inside, while still locked on the outside. NOT something you want to discover after climbing out of the hot tub wearing only a towel. Don't ask how I know!?!"
