We really enjoyed our time in this house! It was my husband, myself, our 4 kids, and my parents and we all had plenty of room! The details and decorations in this home are perfect, the beds were very comfortable, and the washer/dryer was great in the midst of our 2 week trip! The kitchen was fantastic, we cooked a few meals there and had everything that we needed. We enjoyed spending our evenings in the hot tub and star gazing out back in the peace and quiet. Overall, a fantastic stay and no improvements that I can think of. :)
From the moment we first opened the door, we were struck by how beautiful and well-appointed Monticola Lodge was. The kitchen was high-end fully equipped; the bedrooms, each with their own en-suite bathrooms, were spacious and lovely; the great room was cozy, comfortable and inviting; and the downstairs playroom provided added fun.
The entrance to Yellowstone was an easy, short drive away, and the town of West Yellowstone offered plenty of restaurant options.
Also, Rand was an outstanding host. He was easy to reach and quick to respond to our questions. Our family of five adults thoroughly enjoyed our stay, and have nothing but great things to say about Monticola Lodge.
It is easy to see how beautiful this place is in the pictures and it did not disappoint! What you cannot see is that this place is one of the best stocked VRBO’s I have stayed at. The amount of kitchen items (pots, pans, appliances, dish towels) bathroom, laundry room, games, use of kayaks and paddle boats (life jackets) was extraordinary! I always bring a few things because you can never really know what you may need and the only thing I actually used was shampoo and conditioner, (besides food) they provided everything else. The cabin was very clean and such an amazing place right on the river. We did have a few days of rain so was also impressed we didn’t have any troubles on the dirt road getting there as it was well packed vs some of the off roads that were pure mud. There are very close neighbors so while you can hear them if you are outside you do still feel like it is secluded. We had no need to contact the property manager for anything but they were thoughtful enough to check in with us a week before, the day of and as well as when we left so I know any issues would have been easy to address. I personally usually travel to different places but would of course check here first if/when I decided to revisit Yellowstone in the future.
This was the perfect cabin for the 4 of us cousins. We each had our own room. The cabin is wonderfully decorated and it achieves the mountain cabin feel. Very clean. Beds were wonderful! Outside for coffee every morning - wonderful. It was perfect to come "home" to every night after a busy day.
I would highly recommend this rental.
