After spending a considerable amount of time researching lodging options in West Yellowstone, we decided on the Yellowstone Inn because it had everything that we were looking for. Sofa in front of a real wood-burning fireplace, wood provided, on the edge of town for peace and quiet, microwave and mini-fridge but still within a 5 minute drive of everything. We came back to a warm and clean cabin and fluffy linens everyday. We stayed there 1/24/06 - 1/27/06 and found it very warm and cozy. The new owners Burt and Liz were very friendly and gave us a lot of pointers about dining and entertainment choices. They were very gracious and accommadating. They knew that we were checking in late and turned on the heat and lights for us so the cabin was nice and toasty when we arrived. We stayed in cabin 4 which had 2 queen beds in front of the fireplace so it was very romantic and warm. Each night, we had to turn the heat down because the fireplace put out so much heat! They have a website where you can view pics and descriptions for each cabin. We ate breakfast (per Burt's recommendation) at the D+M right on the main drag, Canyon St. and really enjoyed it. Had pizza at the Wild West, it was really good, generous toppings and cheese, and ate a few times at the Chinatown restaurant. Yes, there is decent Chinese in West. For snowmobile rentals and tours, we went with Yellowstone Adventures. They are a class act and very professional, unlike a rental place that was very close to the Inn. Go 3 blocks back towards town on Rt. 20 and Amy at Yellowstone Adventures (next to the Arby's/Gas station) will take excellent care of you. We went into the National Forest the first 2 days on our own and did the guided snowmobile tour to Old Faithful on the 3rd day. The trails in the Forest are well-marked and I would highly recommend going to Two Top and Big Springs. Don't forget to check weather and trail conditions before heading out. Saw the two moose that hang out at Big Springs and some monster trout. Loved our trip to West and can't wait to go back. We will be staying at the Yellowstone Inn our next trip and I would highly recommend it! Feel free to contact me if you need more details at firstname.lastname@example.org Have fun and ride safe!
