"We would have no problem recommending this cabin to anyone wanting to visit Yellowstone National Park! It worked out perfectly for the five of us-- three adults, and two children. We were usually away most of the day, but it was so nice to come home to in the evening. We had access to everything we needed for fixing breakfast and to pack picnic lunches. We did not encounter any problems with the cabin, but if we had, I feel that the owner would have responded quickly. We used a mountainside landmark called the Devil's Slide to know where to turn upon arriving back from Yellowstone. We would stay again!"

Don't panic. All about our XC Skiing Anniversary Trip
"Very last minute (the 23rd) my wife said she had off for our Anniversary (the 29th) and made it very clear she wanted to get away. I panicked.
After a bit of searching around, I selected this cabin as what I thought she would like (hint: she did) and a few others that might have worked. I emailed Stacy and started emailing a few other places, but before I could hit send, she had already replied to me. It was my first time using VRBO and I didn't know how it worked, so I replied every way I knew how to make sure we were good to go. My 3 or 4 messages didn't seem to faze Stacy at all.
The moment we walked in, Grace was jumping with excitement and saying how perfect of a place the cabin was. And it was, it was exactly what she wanted. Although we found it comfortable and beautiful, it's not a glamorous 3 bedroom home with a 500 sq ft bathroom - it's a small cabin perfect two people who don't need a hotel staff waiting on them to enjoy themselves. There's no wifi (aren't you visiting Yellowstone to be outdoors anyways?) and it's not a chef's ideal cabin, but it couldn't have been any better for us. The cabin is a few miles off highway, but we really liked that it was away from tourists and private. It is very well taken care of. There are a few displays of books that you cannot open, but there are a few historical books around the cabin as well; they've found a very tasteful way of preserving history while still making it available and livable as well.
Grace and I drove the open roads in Yellowstone Friday, saw Cook City and skied Lower Baronet. We really enjoyed skiing to Tower Falls and Blacktail Plateau Saturday. We thought maybe the elevation was bugging us because we were really struggling, but it ended up that we both had the flu that night.
Nevertheless, we had a great time and left feeling we had found the best place in the area to stay in the future! We've already recommended the cabin to some friends who visit the area every March.
We loved the cabin and how tastefully done and comfortable everything was. It was private, cozy, and romantic - exactly what my wife was hoping for. Being greeted by elk just before sunrise was a nice bonus too!
Sandy was incredibly quick to respond and made sure we were taken care of - extremely reliable.
If you're visiting the area, this should be the first place you consider staying!"

"The perfect getaway for Yellowstone ! We were two couples and the house was just right for us. The living room and extensive deck look out over the river and the mountains beyond with wonderful sunrises and sunsets. The house was well equipped and really well placed just a few minutes drive from the park north entrance. We will certainly be recommending Buffalo Bluff to all our friends."

"This cabin was a small little charming place nestled between two rapid creeks. Our first impression was a happy one. We arrived late in the evening, tired, and needed sleep. The cabin was perfect. It was very clean with nice linens and was stocked with more than I could have imagined. The owners did a wonderful job fixing up this little gem. It is adorable !!
Now, with that said a few things to keep in mind. The cabin is in a wonderful Montana location but is off the grid. No cell service or cable tv. I was perfectly fine with that but some may find that challenging if you're from the city. Also, there are hiking trails right there by the cabin for a true Montana experience BUT be sure to bring bear spray. Be VERY sure to bring bear spray !!! I cannot say that enough. We hiked 100 ft from the cabin and seen the largest bear tracks I've ever seen. We weren't prepared so we couldn't finish our hike.
I would highly recommend the horseback riding. My son and I went on a 2 hour ride to the top of a mountain and had the most beautiful scenery along the way. It truly made our "out-West" trip feel special.
There is about 5 miles of dirt road to travel before you find the cabin. If you don't like dirt roads, this may not be for you but we made it just fine in a regular SUV. No problems. It was a beautiful drive so we didn't mind.
Keep in mind that Yellowstone is HUGE. If you plan on staying here, I would visit the north part of the park, then visit the south part of the park when you leave. Otherwise you could end up in the car all day. With that said, this cabin is the most cost efficient way to go.
Thanks, Stermitz Family for sharing your cabin with us."
