We took our first family trip out West this summer, and we had the great luck to stay at Crevice Mountain Lodge. In planning our trip, I had hoped to stay at a (fancy) guest ranch in Big Sky the whole week, but it was too expensive, so I looked for another option for two nights. I was so glad I did. Crevice Mountain Lodge was Montana at its best! The most homey, beautiful, comfortable place. Having read the other reviews, I was concerned about the road (I have a strong fear of heights), but save one or two spots near the bottom, it was not at all scary or difficult to drive. And the views on the way up are SPECTACULAR. The cabins are clean and very simple/rustic, but quite comfortable. Cheryl is kind and accommodating. My kids were in heaven, playing with George the gentle dog and the bonus 2 kittens! They loved the fire pit at night. We never did get to see the stars, because the sun sets so late! I will say that getting up to the lodge from Gardiner took about 40 minutes each time, which for us meant that once we headed up for dinner, we stayed put. But we were more than happy to do so, just a 15 minute walk will give you a view of Yellowstone that is not to be believed. I was so sorry to leave!
