Comfortable space with GREAT views!

  • 5 of 5

Great spot overlooking the river. Usually some wildlife can be seen from the deck. Beds were comfortable, owners had great coffee! Two good tables to play games around.

Beautiful view of Yellowstone from deck

  • 4 of 5

Close to north entrance of Yellowstone on the Yellowstone river beautiful view. The neighborhood itself not great but you only see it coming in and out. Apartment is great with basic rental needs [see VRBO listing for photos]. Wifi but no T.V. We liked location of place close to restaurants and market plus so close to Yellowstone.

Can't beat the location and views!

  • 5 of 5

Loved the location and views. The owner was very thoughtful in the items provided-toiletries, plenty of towels, even a bowl of candy! Parking is a bit tight and awkward, but did not outshine the house! One very small suggestion-paper cups upstairs. The stairs were a little tight going upstairs and if I forgot to bring water up to take my meds, I had to shimmy back down. We had a great time, thank you!

Yellowstone in your backyard!

  • 5 of 5

A group of us stayed for 4 nights as the launch pad for day trips into Yellowstone but sometimes we didn't even want to leave the deck of the house due to the gorgeous view! The kitchen was well stocked, the showers had hot water with good pressure and there was no shortage of towels or blankets. You are a short walk to the grocery store and Gardiner shops but the best part is the ease of which you can go in and out of the park for hikes and animal sightings. I would stay here again adn recommend it to anyone interested in touring Yellowstone.

Totally unacceptable

  • 1 of 5

Not clean - at all!!! Smoke detectors missing (safety). Dangling wires (safety). No TV (yes, this may have been disclosed in the property information but there is a satellite dish on the property so why not offer guests TV). Front door lock difficult to operate. No screen on sliding glass door (which also doesn't have a lock) - and no air conditioning so no way to leave glass door open for air exchange. Spiral staircase makes moving items to second floor bedroom very difficult. Not clean (again!!!) Internet access intermittent (at best) and since there is no TV or satellite offered, we couldn't even steam for most of our stay. Can only use laundry after 4:00 p.m. and had to leave the house to access the laundry facilities. House is in a very narrow alley - need to park so close to the front door that access to the house is difficult. Some windows couldn't be operated so, again, no air flow and no air conditioning. Very poor light on the rear deck. Lights in kitchen were so bright and hot that it made sitting in the kitchen area uncomfortable. Pages ripped out of the guest diary in the house. Can't believe that other negative comments haven't been received for this property. VRBO has an obligation to better screen. The owner changed the rate (increased) after we had made our reservation and by then, we couldn't find other properties so we didn't have options. Again, this is something that VRBO has an obligation to screen. Couldn't be happier to be out of the house (didn't feel safe with the missing smoke detector and dangling wires in a building which is very old and made of wood) and will never (ever) return.

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.
