It seems that since 2009 they have cleaned up a bit. We found the cabin to be very clean and linens were in great shape. The kitchen is great and has all the dishes, pots, wine openers needed for a dinner. The view is fantastic. We had elk in the yard a few times. (2 night stay) Star gazing is...

My daughter, son-in-law, and I stayed in Steph's cabin for 2 nights, 9/29-30/13. The cabin is roomy for 3 people and furnished with all the necessities. The views were fantastic. We could see Mammoth Hot Springs from the windows. Owners were friendly and non-obtrusive.

We stayed in Steph's Cabin. The home is very well maintained and comfortable, away from town but only a short 5 minute drive back in. The views are stunning, the owners who live next door are very friendly but also allow you complete privacy. Bed was comfortable however the bedroom is upstairs which you access via a spiral staircase, something...

Stayed here for 5 nights in August so that I could hike in the area. Excellent location just 2.5 miles outside of town, on a bluff overlooking the Yellowstone River and Yellowstone national park. Quiet and out of the way 2 bedroom cabin, fully furnished except no washer/dryer. The owner/operator was nice. I only interacted with him when making reservation...

Based on other reviews we were somewhat nervous about staying here. We arrived at night but didn't have a problem finding it. The road is a little rough but we managed just fine with our car. We stayed in the cabin with another family. The cabin was clean. We brought our own towels and bedding which was a good call....

Overall, we had a great experience in Shirly Bells Cabin. It had 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and a large kitchen/livingroom area. Plenty of room for the 6 of us.The view from the large deck was beautiful. The kitchen was well appointed. The most notable deficiencies were the drains in the bathtubs (very slow....) the quality of the bath towels (ripped...

We had reservations about staying at Steph's Cabin even before we arrived, however, we wanted somewhere with a kitchen so that we could cook our own food and there just weren't that many options around Yellowstone. What a mistake. While we had many complaints - the towels in the bathroom were ripped and torn, not all of the lights worked,...

The view from the cabin was the most amazing thing you could ask for. The cabin was great (the nest) but the bathroom could have used a better cleaning. The only other complaint we could have is that the septic tank broke and was fixed the morning before we got there so it had a horrible smell the entire time....

We stayed in the Mansion to celebrate my parents 50th wedding anniversary as well as 50 years that they have been in America. The location was just awesome with amazing views of Yellowstone and the surrounding mountains. We could see the steam at Mammoth as well as the mighty Yellowstone river downhill from our cabin. Elk were grazing in the...

We have replaced mattresses and sofa sleeper since this review. There have been some comments about the towels; we line dry all the linens whenever possible so they will smell nice. Sometimes they are not as soft as if they were in a dryer. We do not claim to be the HIlton, but pride ourselves in offering a clean, and...

I can't say enough about the lodge. We stayed in the Nest for one week. The view looking out the back porch is breathtaking. The location was perfect for our trip. It's close enough to Gardiner, MT for picking up supplies and gas (about 2 miles), yet far enough away to get away from others. It's about three miles from...
