I have taken two separate trips to visit Bev and Big Moose Resort. Both were awesome and we truly felt that we'd be coming back for many years to come. We are sad to see that new ownership is taking over, but hope they are able to uphold the excellent service we received over our two visits. Location-wise, Big Moose...

We stayed in one of the older cabins (#4) it was dated but clean. My husband use to be in pest control so he was worried as usual about bed bugs, so as usual he checked out every nook and cranny. There are absolutely no bed bugs, in fact we only saw 2 spiders the whole 8 days we were...

Without a doubt the worst night I have ever experienced in a hotel/motel. The positives are that you are surrounded by a beautiful forest and there is a hot tub near the office. The negatives are that it was not the room I had booked via phone call. There were no other rooms in the area or I would have...

We stayed here for two nights and after long 12 hour days exploring Yellowstone, we were surprised how glad we were to come back to a place that didn't feel like a hotel. The cabin we stayed in was cute with great pillows, warm quilts, great water pressure and DirecTV. The cabin did have Wifi access but we didn't use...

Comfortable beds / clean everything/ lots of hot water / wonderful gas heater with easy to use thermostat. I am handicapped and had some difficulty on the 3 steps to the cabin. When I came back from dinner that had added a hand rail! Very thoughtful. Very quiet .

This was our second stay at Big Moose Resort. We absolutely love it here! Cabins are in the woods with deer right outside your window. Only 7 miles to the northeast entrance of Yellowstone and 3 miles to the shops and restaurants of Cooke City. The owners are great people. They are so friendly and knowledgeable about the area.
