"A wonderful vacation. The HomeAway listing was very descriptive of what we found when we got there. The cabin is 2 bedroom, 2 bath plus full kitchen and common space as well as a back patio that overlooked the Yellowstone river and there were even steps going down to the river. The cabin slept 6 easily with 4 in one room and two in the other, and it was also very clean. They had included everything we needed - games to play, extra towels and even laundry soap. We liked this location because it was quiet and we could sit outside and just listen to the river and watch the rafts of people go by and the people fishing. Some of the cabins had wood privacy dividers on their patios so they couldn't see the neighbors, but we were glad this cabin didn't have that as it would also cut off the breadth of the river view which was a real plus for us.
We couldn't have an outside fire because it was the dry season, but we made do with microwave smores using Hershey bars and marshmallows on chocolate chip cookies (while we played Monopoly). All three generations in our party had a wonderful time and the owner stayed in touch with us to make sure we had everything we needed.
There were plenty of things to do besides visiting Yellowstone National Park - fishing, river rafting, horseback riding, zip line, and there are some shops in town plus a few really great places to eat. When the oldest of us (that's me) wanted to find a place to sit while the rest shopped, there were plenty of outdoor benches in town and I found the Gardiner Chamber of Commerce to be a wonderful air conditioned place (plus indoor restroom) to spend some time looking at local historical pictures and information. They also had free maps and information about 6 neighboring states as well as all the national parks in Idaho, Utah, Montana, both Dakotas as well as Wyoming. The Gardiner Chamber of Commerce is one of the the most accessible and hospitable CofC I've visited.
We all decided that this cabin as well as the area gets 5 out of 5 stars."
