The Grizzly Den is an amazing place to call home during your visit to Yellowstone Park. This is 3 bedroom home, with an open loft area(with pull out sofa), and another loft area with a futon. Located above the banks of the Yellowstone River less than a mile from the north entrance to the park in the heart of Gardiner, MT, it has 18 windows facing south into the park highlighting stunning views of 11,000 ft Electric Peak. You can literally look out the windows, or off the deck and see: elk, antelope, deer, and occasionally bears and wolves roaming the hillsides of Yellowstone.

Great location, cute home with wonderful view
We had a good experience staying here and it was very comfortable, cute and spacious enough for our four. We would book this place again with no hesitation.
Weather was chilly so didn’t get to enjoy the deck but it would have been a great hangout with wonderful view of river and mountains.
Owner was friendly and responsive.
Notes to anyone else staying, do know the stairs to loft may be better for mid-age kids or spry adults. Heavy suitcases would be difficult. But we saw a photo so that is just a note of awareness, not a criticism. Also be aware beds are tall! So someone with joint or body issues might find a bit difficult. I’m guessing it’s to provide more storage space under beds. Again - just a tip to other renters. It would not deter us.)
Giving 5 stars but adding a few minor notes: never could find dish cloths or dish towels (and we didn’t ask so that’s on us but suggest storing in a more obvious place if they were in condo). Bathtub downstairs may have been missed by cleaning crew but otherwise all was clean and good to go.
A good stay and wish we had longer.
Cozy, nicely laid out, plenty of sleeping space and room for everyone.
The cabin had a few problems. The downstairs sink drained very slowly and the hot water handle leaked. My husband fixed a few minor things, like the curtain rods in the bathroom, tightened the ceiling track lights in the kitchen and fixed the internet connection. The place was very well insulated and we rarely needed the heat, with 28 degrees temps outside. Great location! Loved being next to the river and so close to Yellowstone. Elk walked around the town, as well as mule deer. Comfortable beds and great water pressure in the showers. We enjoyed the deck, too. Overall, we liked this place a lot and would recommend it for however long you want to say.
We loved sitting on the deck in the evenings after a long day in the park. We enjoyed listening to the river. Everything was wonderful. The accommodations were great for my family!! I would love to bring them back one day. Grandkids loved the Grizzly Den!!!
Everything you need
A very convenient, picturesque cabin that is great to stay in when visiting Yellowstone. The cabin was stocked with everything you need - including toilet paper, shampoo, etc. Plenty of good pots and pans for cooking. The back porch was wonderful, with a view of the mountains and river. Sleeping accommodations were plentiful, but the beds are very high. You can walk to restaurants, and the entrance to Yellowstone is 2 minutes away.
I loved just about everything about the property, the accommodations and attention to detail were perfect. The heat was a bit much and we could not cool it down even. Humidity was pretty rough as well
Beautiful view and great location!
We just came home from our stay and enjoyed every minute. We were 3 families, with a total of 10, 6 adults and 4 kids ages 12-7. The house was clean and comfortable, with enough sleeping areas for everyone and space for us to play and relax. There were games and puzzles for us, which we enjoyed in the evenings. Even markers and papers that the girls loved to use. The view from the deck was so lovely and the adults enjoyed our morning coffee there every day. The sound of the river and view of the mountains was a great way to start each day. The kids favourite part was the loft area where they spent all their time playing and hanging out together. The kitchen had all the basic supplies that we needed for breakfast before heading out to explore Yellowstone. This house is within walking distance of the grocery store and many restaurants, our favourite was "Wonderland Cafe". If you want other excursions in Gardiner, we recommend "The Flying Pig" for river rafting, they were so excellent with our kids and made sure they had a blast! You can see their boats launch into the water from the deck. Also "Hells a Roaring" for horseback riding, the wranglers were fantastic and since only part of our group wanted to go riding, the rest of us met up at the their ranch for a delicious cowboy steak cookout and campfire. Their ranch is just a short drive outside of Gardiner. Overall this was an excellent play to stay and we would highly recommend it. It's a great base to explore Yellowstone and Gardiner itself is a nice little town to enjoy.
We are 1 mile from Roosevelt Arch. Our cabin sits directly above the Yellowstone River - we have a large deck with bbq and seating - you can watch the river roll by and enjoy the rafters below. There are restaurants, entertainment, coffee shops, rafting all within a mile of our cabin. This cabin has lots of great private spaces and a really creative layout. Large groups can all find a place to call their own in this cabin.
