We had such an amazing time! The property was clean and the amenities were awesome. There were 30 of us that stayed and it didn’t feel crowded at all. McKay was a delight to work with. We’ll definitely be back!

The Spring Shores Lodge is everything you see in the photos and then some.

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was perfect for the whole family. Ages 25 to 79 we had plenty of room to move around and when you needed private space it was easy to slip away to your room or gameroom. The kitchen was by far the best I have had in a VRBO rental. My father in law has been going on vacation with us for several years and he said this was the best one to date. Yellowstone was only 50 minutes away and we went twice. Javkson Hole was a bit further and we spent a day there and had dinner at the Gun Barrel, I highly recommend. We wandered up the hill behind the house and heard elk bugle and saw bear tracks along with cougar tracks .

Thank you for the use of your beautiful Lodge.

Everything we hope for!!!! This home is beautiful and was prefect for our family reunion.

  • 5 of 5

This home was prefect for our family reunion. The owners have equipment this home with everything you could need. Kitchen well equiped, beds that are super confortable, space

to go outside with decks and a yard to play with kiddos. Snake River you can walk to, horsebacking riding 30 min away, Yellowstone 1 1/2 hr away, Jacksonhole 1 1/2hrs away. It is

prefect place to enjoy. Highly recommend.

Incredible, incredible, incredible place.

I booked the lodge over two years before our visit, shortly after Spring Shores opened its doors for the first time. Walking into the building after all of that anticipation and having it exceed my expectations was an astounding feeling.

We were a group of 26 people (including four young children); my husband and I were the only people who knew everyone before our trip. The accommodations and grounds were spacious enough to allow everyone room for privacy or alone time; at the same time, it was easy for folks to gather and be social (to the point that those on cooking duty one night had to order folks away from the kitchen area :-) ). The kitchen was well equipped and organized with everything you'd need to cook and feed a crowd. When you're staying somewhere and your biggest complaint is "they really need a couple of new vegetable peelers" that pretty much speaks for itself. It was easy for a group of 6+ folks to work in the kitchen at the same time. Between the enormous fridges both upstairs and downstairs, there was storage for all of the food for the entire visit.

The grounds are beautiful. We all spent plenty of time at the lake either kayaking/stand-up paddleboarding or just lounging about on the shore, and it wasn't enough time.

McKay was communicative and a helpful host. We had no issues whatsoever with the property, but he checked in on us by text to make sure all was going well. He provided useful information about nearby tourist sights, directions on getting to and using the lodge, nearby stores, etc etc. He's been answering my questions about the property for two years with great patience, and I am immensely grateful.

By the end of our stay, every single person in our group wanted to return, be it for a destination wedding/bachelorette party, family vacation, or gathering of friends. We'd be willing to drive the thousand miles again to come and hang out and relax.

One small heads up: warn your group that any early risers should resist the urge to be helpful and empty the dishwasher, since the folks in the main floor king suites will hear it. :-)

Superb for our Family Reunion.

  • 5 of 5

Thanks to McKay and Justin for outstanding service!

Beautiful property and our family of 31 had a wonderful time during our 7-day stay. Spacious house loaded and well constructed. Private lake and large yard made for lots of outdoor fun. We made two trips to Yellowstone. West Yellowstone is 50-55 minutes away. Setting was as good as it gets despite a couple of "acts of God" which included remote fires that yielded smoke which blocked our view of the Teton mountains for the entire week and a brief electrical outage.

Mesa Falls, only 30 minutes away from the Lodge, is a surprisingly spectacular attraction.

Spring Shores Lodge was the finest place yet among our family reunion sites.
