Why West Yellowstone Vacation Rentals chose West Yellowstone

Beautiful area, affordable and easy to reach. We enjoy snowmobiling and West Yellowstone has the best trails we could find that do not require a guide. Must have guide in park but we prefer snowmobiling on our own and this area has miles of beautiful trails that are well groomed and safe.

What makes this condo unique

See wild animals from unit -- bison, deer, elk and fox in the back yard!

Nice place to stay.

  • 4 of 5

The condo was a nice place to stay. It was an easy drive to the west entrance of Yellowstone. We stayed two nights.

The kitchen was well stocked. The beds were comfortable. There were four of us staying together. The only drawback was one bathroom, but we made do.

We saw a fox both evenings.

I would stay here again. It was great to be away from all the people in West Yellowstone , yet we had neighborhood houses near. Loved the taffy treats that welcomed us! Thank you

Overall of my staying during July 4th weekend was excellent and amazing experience. Its 15 mins drive to west yellowstone entrance. The condo is very quiet and the environment around it is very good and the view is also very nice. I definitely recommend this place.

Cute home in a beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

The property was the perfect size for the four of us and our dog. We had amazing views, and we were just far enough away from the entrance to Yellowstone that it was quiet and serene. Everything was clean, and comfy. I would stay here again in a heartbeat!

Nice view, comfortable bed but not real clean.

  • 3 of 5

This property was decent. Nice view of the buffalo and some some fox. The unit wasn't real clean but it had everything we needed. The beds were comfortable. Owners didn't make it as easy as the last place that we stayed using HomeAway (had to take the bedding off and take the trash to the dumpster down the road) but I guess the last place we stayed set the bar high.

Owner's Response: Thanks for reviewing, although we wished you'd let us know during your stay if something was wrong with the cleaning! This condo just had a top to bottom spring cleaning, including washing all surfaces and getting into every nook and cranny. Would really love to know what was amiss, because it has been thoroughly cleaned and then some. The reason for asking guests to remove bedding is to keep the rates down and allow for check-out/check-in times to be as late and early as possible. We have a very limited amount of time between rentals to make sure everything is ready for the next guest, and we also try to keep our cleaning fee and rates low. We also like to let you know where the dumpster is in case you fill the garbage cans and need to dispose of it for longer stays, and again it also helps keep costs low which are passed on to you. It can't be left outside because of the bears and other wildlife, and it's actually illegal to do so in our area to help protect the wildlife. A hotel room with a national chain is upwards of $300/night in West Yellowstone, and this condo offers so much more including another room, living room, full kitchen, deck with BBQ and awesome views, and the wildlife that can be see from the condo. It's awfully good stuff!

Roaming condo was a big dud

  • 3 of 5

Clean and comfortable, but average condo. Towels were stiff and hard. Bathroom shower faucet was broken and maintenance man could not repair it (not his fault). kitchen was adequate but not offering all that was necessary. Decent location for hunters, fishermen but not top notch in quality. Needs to be remodeled and updated in bathroom. Tv was intermittent reception. Would we stay here again? Answer is no.

Owner's Response: We are sorry to hear that this condo was not up to your expectations! However, it's most unfortunate that you seem to be comparing this highly regarded home (see the other reviews) to something found at a posh ski resort. It is not intended to be of that ilk, nor is it priced that way. These are the facts: The maintenance man could not "fix" the faucet because the parts had to be ordered, but he did insure that it was fully functional for your stay. The towels are thick white terry, and are replaced regularly; we've never had a complaint about them. We're not sure what was lacking in the kitchen, because the owners are big into cooking and stay here regularly. Had you called, we could have likely provided whatever might have been needed, but it should be noted that the kitchen has all new appliances, microwave, 2 full serving sets of all dishware and flatware (could serve 12 people with what's on premises), a full complement of all kinds of pots and pans, along with all sorts of extra things including a rice-maker, crock-pot and many other specialty items. It also has a new couch, new mattresses, new coffee table...and all are high quality furnishings. Maybe not ebony and ivory, but very much in keeping with what most folks would find appropriate in quality and functional Western style decor. We have never had a complaint about reception on the Dish network satellite TV. Isn't that the point of having satellite TV? The irony of this review is that this guest also wrote the following in the condo guest book about their stay: "Quite comfortable, great wildlife viewing, will be back." Please take all of the above into consideration and also please see the other excellent reviews of this condo when you decide to reserve. Thanks for looking, and please let us know if if there is anything we can help with or if you have any questions before booking or during your stay!
