Guestbook comments from the manager

My husband and I came to Gardiner for three days before a conference in West Yellowstone. Our primary goal was to kayak and see the north end of the Park so we looked for a reasonably-priced house near the north entrance. We were pleasantly surprised with the Cub's Den as it was clean, updated and a perfect fit for us. The bathroom fixtures looked new and the queen bed was very comfortable, we slept like babies! Super convenient, cute, and a bargain compared to the hotel rooms in town.

Convenient in town, good for close friends because it's small!

  • 3 of 5

This little house is cozy and conveniently located - very easy to take day trips into Yellowstone NP. They layout allows for family or close friends to share the space easily, though you do have to walk through one sleeping area to access the bathroom from the rest of the house. The linens and towels and living spaces were all quite clean, though the bathroom could've been cleaner (the rug remnant on the floor, and the tub area was a little grimy, and the tub didn't drain well and backed up a bit, which if you have little kids crawling on the floor or trying to take baths wasn't ideal...). Overall fine place to stay, and we're always happy when someone advertises kid-friendly, but this spot may be better for a group of friends or singles, rather than family with little kids.

Not so great

  • 2 of 5

We would not stay here again. Although the house does have a fantastic location, the negatives far outweighed the positives. The drain in the bathtub was clogged on the first time we used the shower and the water backed up and filled the tub. We contacted the manager and they said they knew about the clogged drain but would be unable to fix it until after we were gone. They gave us some drain-o which did nothing. The house was overall moderately dirty. I can’t say for sure if our sheets had even been washed- there was dirt between the sheets upon arrival. All the dishes in the kitchen were a little greasy- we washed everything before we used it. We just felt that overall a basic standard of cleanliness was not met. To have a rental unit for that much a night and not meet these basic conditions is unacceptable. Can not recommend staying here. I will say again on the positive side- it is a great location and has a lot of potential. Nice small town

Eating establishments were very limited but location and proximity to the park was awesome

Not many options for dining out so come prepared to fix your own meals. Love the location and the wildlife roaming around. Landscape leaves you speechless!

Nice little house

  • 5 of 5

The owners did their best to make us comfortable. They let us check in early and we really appreciated that for we were very tired after traveling so far.
