Property type condo

About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible Bed, 1 Bath (sleeps 6 in queen beds)

This condo is in a beautiful location with easy access to our outdoor paradise and is also close to the town of West Yellowstone and the west entrance to Yellowstone Park. It's only a 15 minute drive to town and Yellowstone, but the condo is in a much more scenic and quiet area on a peninsula of Hebgen Lake, with awesome mountain views and lots of wildlife around! It is clean, well maintained, has a full kitchen and deck with BBQ grill, and has great rates, especially compared to a hotel! Don't miss the opportunity to stay in this adventurer's abode!

Morning Glory condo is a 2-bedroom, 1 bath ground floor condominium unit in a 4-plex building, with lots of recent updates. It sleeps up to 6 people, with 2 queen beds and a queen sofa-sleeper couch in the living room.

It has a full-size kitchen, dining area, wood fireplace, laundry facilities, wireless internet, satellite TV, and spectacular views of Yellowstone Park and the 11'000 foot peaks surrounding West Yellowstone and easy (5 minute drive) access to the Madison and Grayling arms of Hebgen Lake.

There is abundant wildlife, much of which travels right past the condo, and hundreds of miles of hiking, biking, skiing and snowmobiling trails right out the door. We also have other units available and can combine one, two, and three bedroom units to accommodate larger groups.

It is accessible by paved road (the last 1/4 mi is gravel), but sits in a secluded, quiet subdivision on the Horse Butte peninsula of Hebgen Lake, 9mi (15km) outside the town of West Yellowstone.

West Yellowstone has its own charms, with both summer and winter time activities, museums, theaters, dining and shopping, and gear rentals for enjoying our world famous Nordic ski and snowmobile trails, fishing, cycling, hiking. There is a marina on Hebgen lake (Kirkwood Marina) that rents motor boats and water gear too!

The fishing, skiing, wildlife watching and geyser gazing are world renowned. Come stay in this quiet mountain retreat and spend time exploring this adventurer's wonderland!

Great Location, Great Veiw, Needs Improvement

  • 3 of 5

This condo was in a great location and had a wonderful view. It needs a few improvements. The kitchen needs some food prep knives. It also would be nice to have some baking pans, as we did not find any. It would also be helpful if the kitchen was fully stocked for cooking and a new kitchen sponge was provided for each new guest. Bed was comfortable, but some new quality sheets and new pillows would be nice, as they appeared to be very old. Overall, our stay was ok, just a few more updated amenities would make this a great place.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the review. Please, please give us a call while you're here and let us know if there's anything you feel is lacking or missing. We will do our best to get you whatever you need so that your stay is everything you'd hoped for. The owner is in the process of purchasing new items for the kitchen so those will all be updated. The sheets are new every season, two sets which are rotated at the turnovers. Apologies if they seemed old, but they are not. The pillows are only a couple of seasons old. However, we will look into replacing those too. Hope you enjoyed your stay overall, and hope to see you again soon!

Cozy little condo in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Morning Glory and wished we could have extended it. The condo is in a great location and is only 10 minutes from Yellowstone Park. The condo has a cozy living room, a full kitchen, two good sized bedrooms and a full bath. The beds were comfortable and there were plenty of soft towels and necessary kitchen supplies.We just had to bring food. There are additional pillows and blankets in the closets. The free laundry was the icing on the cake. We didn't have to travel back with dirty clothes. It is beyond perfect for 4 to 6 people. The grill and patio set were perfect to enjoy an evening on the deck with a breathtaking view of the greenery and the mountains beyond. Marta send us clear instructions and directions to the condo via email. Thanks again!

Cute condo in a nice quiet location

  • 5 of 5

Had everything we needed, clean, plenty of towels and paper supplies provided which was nice. Beds were comfy. When we had an issue with the kitchen bulb going out, Marta was there quickly to have it replaced. Thanks to the management company for being prompt with minor issues. Would definitely stay again.

Good location near Yellowstone west entrance

  • 4 of 5

This property is nicely situated for trips into Yellowstone National Park, as well as other nearby attractions (Big Sky, Earthquake Lake, Tetons, etc.).

As other reviews have noted, kitchen items such as pots/pans and blender could use a refresh.

The property was relatively clean upon arrival, though the bathroom could have used more attention.

Communication of check in process / instructions was very good. We did not have any issues which necessitated contacting the property managers during our stay.
