Magical place to stay outside Yellowstone!
"If you really the full experience of a trip to Montana as part of your vacation in Yellowstone, this is the place! Being able to enjoy Yellowstone Park and then returning to our own piece of private paradise allowed us to enjoy our vacation around the clock. Our family of 4 stayed in this cozy cabin for five nights and loved it. This 2,800 acre ranch has a couple of other guest cabins if the school house is a little too small for your group. We saw wild life, enjoyed rainbows and went horseback riding on the ranch. The owners and the staff treat you like family and want to make sure that you are enjoying your stay, without being intrusive. We felt miles away from anywhere, but were actually a 15 minute mountain road drive from the town of Gardiner, just outside Yellowstone's north entrance. We would happily go back here again, and recommend it highly."

"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!"

"This is an absolutely beautiful house in Gardiner, Montana just minutes from Yellowstone National Park. My family and I (there were seven of us in total) just got back from Shirl and John's lovely home there. It is truly hard to find any negatives about this place. There was something for all of us from my 13 year old cousin, to a young couple in their late 20s-early 30s, and to the rest of the family between 45-50s. Shirl and John (the owners) even helped us plan our daily adventures in Yellowstone giving us plenty of ideas for our weeks stay based off our interests. We went everywhere from the Grand Canyon of Yellowstone, to the Grand Prismatic, the Mammoth Hot Springs, The Yellowstone Lake, Lamar Valley, Hayden Valley, and multiple local day hikes as recommended by Shirl and John. We felt like we accomplished and saw so much, however, there was still so much more to see. Not to mention the abundant wildlife we saw from grizzly bears, black bears, bison, elk, mountain goats, long horned sheep, prong horns, and the potential to see so much more.
The house itself was also beautiful. Each room provided a spectacular view of the river and the mountains. The weather was for the most part perfect and air contioning was usually not missed. My family and I absolutely loved cooking on their electric AND gas stove/oven combination. The artwork around the house was stunning. Each living and communal space in the home was perfect for family gatherings at the end of our adventurous days, not to mention the amazing dining room which had plenty of room for everyone.
My one suggestion would be to bring or have supplied lighter bed linens for the summer considering there is no air conditioning.
All in all, getting to stay at the Gallery Lodge was an absolute treat and I would absolutely recommend to any and everyone. It was the perfect getaway so close to Yellowstone and set in the quaint and charming town of Gardiner where EVERYONE was so nice and helpful.
Thank you Shirl and John! We will hopefully be back in the winter months this time!"
