Needs TLC

  • 2 of 5

This place had good beds and was very close to the park entrance. Restaurants, bars, and shops within two/three blocks; good grocery store about a mile away. Although description advertised TV, there was Netflix only, no other TV. Kitchen was dark with no dishwasher. Silverware, pots and pans were dirty, with food waste in one pot and others with a greasy sheen. We washed all food use items before eating or cooking from them. Coffee carafe was badly cracked. The house was old, shabby, and quirky. It needed painting, lighting was inadequate, floor coverings were worn, and bathroom had very old fixtures. Curtain was pulled loose from traverse rod in living room and living room rug in front of fireplace was pulled loose .Although check out instructions were to start a load of laundry, there was no detergent or softener available, so we had to purchase these. The grounds were overgrown, and junky. The back door to the parking alley could not be locked from the outside, which required going through the house to the front and around over uneven rock steps. This would be problematic for persons with impaired mobility.

This place was overpriced for the condition of the property. We would not stay here again.

Owner's Response: Carol, I am so sorry that you did not enjoy your stay with us. I have read your review and would like to apologize for some of the problems you encountered. I am sorry you thought we would have cable, it does say on our listing that we have a TV but we do not advertise cable or dish. Netflix is usually sufficient for most guests. I do agree that the house can get a little dark even with all the windows. We have updated some of the lighting recently to solve this problem, thank you for bringing it to my attention. We do have a cleaning crew the comes in after each guest. The guest before you must have put the dished away dirty. I am so sorry for this, I have instructed the cleaners to check all the dishes in the cupboards between guests. I have also instructed them to double check the laundry detergent because we do supply it. We have changed the lock on the back door so that it locks from the inside and out. I am sorry it wasn't done before your stay. I am also sorry you didn't like the yard. It is my favorite part of the house. We do have very dry summers in Gardiner and the grass does get a little dry form time to time. We have installed timed sprinklers to go off at night to try and avoid this. Thank you for your review, I appreciate you bringing some of these problems to my attention.

Great location, house needs some TLC

  • 3 of 5

My three friends and I stayed two nights at this home in Gardiner, Montana. The location in Gardiner and in proximity to North Yellowstone is excellent. Upon arrival the house is a little difficult to find and get in to but if you follow the directions you should have no problem. I recommend getting there during the daytime because at night it might be more difficult. The communication with the owner was good. The house, on the other hand was a bit of a disappointment. The pictures don't exactly represent what the house looks like. We found the house to not be very clean. Many of the window coverings were broken and a curtain inside the house separating the front porch from the main home was in really bad shape. The bathroom was functional. The towels were nice and having the use of the laundry is a definite plus. The outside was very overgrown and unkempt . The stairway from the lower level to the upper level in the yard was a bit precarious because of some overgrown bushes that needed to be cut back. Having a key that works both the back door and the front door would be helpful.

I am a VRBO/HomeAway owner and I feel that providing a clean and safe home is paramount to my guests. This home does not use a cleaning service or housekeeper, there was a note that said please leave the home in good shape for the next guest. I personally don't find that acceptable. Had I realized that was the case I probably would not have rented this home but there was very limited availability in the area for the dates we needed so we didn't have much to choose from.

The Wi-Fi was good and there was Netflix available on TV. There is no regular TV available which is OK because you're not there that much.

This is an older home, like much of the town around it. It does have its unique, quirky charm and as I mentioned, the location is excellent. The home sleeps seven people. There are basically two rooms plus a sofa bed and a single bed in the enclosed porch. I think the home just needs a little extra love and upkeep. I did suggest to the owner that they charge a cleaning fee and hire a professional housecleaner between guests. I hope this review helps you make an informed decision if you're considering renting this home.

Owner's Response: Cecilia, I apologize that my rental was not what you were hoping for. I would like to clarify that we do have a cleaning crew that comes in after every guest. We do ask the guests to leave the house tidy but we would never expect them to vacuume, dust, mop, etc. The stairs in the yard can be difficult to navigate because it is an older property but they are safe and by no means do you have to use them. We have had several people with mobility difficulties stay with us with no problem. I do appreciate you bringing to my attention that it is time to update the blinds. Thank you for your review.

Good Location for Yellowstone

  • 3 of 5

Stone Street Cottage is in a perfect location for visiting Yellowstone. It's less than a 5 minute walk to the north entrance of the park. The house is aged and dated but has everything you need for a comfortable stay. One suggestion I have is to install a grab bar in the shower. Alex even had a large Playmate cooler available for guests to use.

Clean cabin. Great location.

  • 4 of 5

Great location, central to restaurants and conveniences. Perfect place to trek from into the park. Could have been awesome if a little more attention was paid to the details. No toilet paper or coffee. Towels smelled musty.

Owner's Response: I am so sorry there wasn't any toilet paper. We do supply it, but it must have been missed during the cleaning process. I am not sure why the towels would smell. They are washed after every guest and are pretty new. I will make sure to check them regularly. I am glad you found the house to be clean! Thank you for your review.

Great location for access to Yellowstone

  • 4 of 5

Excellent proximity to Yellowstone North entrance. Gardiner is a nice little town with grocery, gas and little restaurant/shops all within walking distance. The house was adequate for our family of 7. Having only one bathroom was a challenge. Only one window A/C unit located in dining room to cool the home, ceiling fan in master bedroom helped but the home was on the warm side for our taste. Host was easy to work with and very responsive.

Fantastic cottage space near Yellowstone Park North Entrance

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at this little cottage near the entrance of Yellowstone in Gardiner, MA. The rooms were perfect, the kitchen was wonderful, and the washer/dryer was a nice surprise! We enjoyed our coffee in the beautiful front yard with a view of the mountains! We would definitely stay here again!
