"We stayed in Gardiner for 5 nights, and it was in a wonderful location, very close to the north park entrance. (5 miles). It is in a very small town with groceries, eateries, and all that you may need. Have the outlaw pizza, yum! We did a quarter section of Yellowstone per day. I'd wait to see Old Faithful section for a weekday. The parks geologic wonders, free roaming wildlife, and trails are a must see.
The home had everything we needed to be comfortable, and to cook our own meals at night. The property was clean, and the garden was beautiful. You can see that Barbara has pride in her home, and in the business of making others comfortable. She leaves clear instructions for everything you need. The laundry room was a must have for a family, and you can pack light. We also liked that it had two bathrooms (one of which is private for adults).
The owner lives downstairs, and you won't hear a peep. She will visit you on arrival to answer questions, and is available if needed. We visited to say good-bye and had a lovely conversation, and she prayed for our safe journey to our next destination. It's wonderful to see people like her still exist.
Thank you, Barbara, and Best Wishes in all your future endeavors."

"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."

"We loved our stay at the Barn on the Banks! It was perfect for our family! We have 5 boys ranging in age from 6-22. We also traveled with our parents. The sleeping arrangements were perfect for our family and the Barn was so clean and Linda and Ken are such wonderful hosts. They have truly thought of everything you will need for your stay. We absolutely loved being on the river. The boys enjoyed fishing daily - before AND after our days in Yellowstone! We toured the park every day and enjoyed the drive to Gardiner. We would definitely stay here again and actually are already trying to figure out when we can come back! We are so thankful we found this perfect gem!"

"Thanks for another wonderful summer filled with memories. We all had another week filled with fun adventures. The highlight was getting to see two bears swim across the river in Yellowstone. Loved the view from the back deck. Watched the baby elk play in the meadow. We will be back."
