"We stayed at this cabin for it's proximity to Yellowstone National Park, which takes about 35 minutes to get to from the cabin to the West Yellowstone Entrance. This cabin had ALL of the comforts of home with a high level of craftsmanship in the building and finishes- granite countertops, cabinets and woodwork. It felt more like a house than a cabin. It was well stocked with garbage bags, soap, tin foil, spices, etc...the little things that you don't seem to remember to pack:) The kitchen was fully stocked with the cooking essentials- the only thing that I missed having was a crock pot:) We didn't miss not having a tv/cable as wifi was available and very good- had no uses with 5 people using their devices. The view was wonderful, and it is not as secluded as the pictures show, there are smaller cabins across the river and three other cabins on your side of the river. There is a nice fire pit by the river and plenty of wood was included- bring the wiener sticks for smores. The river is very close to the cabin and the only "open" area for kids is there, as the cabin is on the side of the mountains. We were at Yellowstone for almost all of the day, so having a huge play space for kids was not a huge issue for us as they were all pretty tired by the time we got back around 7:00 every night. There was 6 of us and everyone had enough space to spread out. The loft was perfect for the kids, and was separate from the main bedroom downstairs. The washer and dryer was a plus, and it cut back on the amount of clothes we had to pack, so bring some HE laundry soap. Family vacations are expensive, so we really, really appreciated the very reasonable rate with a do-able reservation deposit, and there aren't any extra fees like many of the other listings we looked at- like cleaning fees, huge damage deposits- the small insurance option was perfect! We felt like the owners were inviting us to stay and enjoy their cabin! It was easy to book and all questions we had were answered in a very timely manner. I highly recommend this cabin to a family on a budget looking for a high-end cabin - we totally enjoyed our stay here:)"
