Everything about our stay here was wonderful! I read a couple of reviews complaining about the small size, but it was really just what I would have expected. A cottage is supposed to be little! We had two queen sized comfy beds, nice fluffy pillows, and extra twin bed which we didn't need but provided more space to sit. There was a nice kitchenette with stovetop, microwave, sink, fridge, coffee maker, toaster. Dishes and cookware were available in the office but we had brought our own. Air conditioning, satellite tv, and free wifi were also provided. The bathroom was NOT tiny. It was about what you'd get in an apartment, with a standard shower stall, not a bathtub. Everything was very clean and housekeeping was provided each day. Art and Annie, the owners were incredibly kind and friendly but pretty much left us alone unless we needed something. They had a cute little dog named Rusty that our children loved. The cottages are almost immediately outside Yellowstone's North Entrance and right in town. Walking distance to all restaurants. We got pizza from the K-bar. Not great, very greasy, but we were starving so it tasted good to us! Try the fried garlic dough, it was good! One night we walked down to the Yellowstone Outpost Mall and got ice cream in a little shop. HUGE and yummy ice cream cones and friendly service. Give these cottages a try, you will love them! I would recommend that you divide your stay perhaps between the Cody or West Entrance area and Gardiner....you will have to drive a LOT to see Yellowstone!
