YVI is a great place to stay if you're a biker or a couple without little ones. Rustic but with many amenities to be enjoyed, most especially the stunning beauty of the area. But our boys are very young - age 6 and under. The proper restaurant is a bit pricey without childrens food - so for that we went to the bar/restaurant. Which is more of a biker bar, not really a restaurant. We were 2 time zones away so dinner was late for the area and there were a number of customers in the bar who did not appreciate little ones joining in the fun....of course my boys were very excited to be in cowboy country on vacation so it was not a happy situation at all. Worst of all was the attitude of the staff - rolling their eyes at us and the boys. The patrons were actually much more welcoming to a family than the staff was - the next morning, a group of bikers came by our cabin and let my boys sit on a "Hog" for photos. Anyway, I'd strongly recommend somewhere else if you have children, otherwise its a great, rustic and beautiful place. It would be a great help to YVI if they made a separate little dining area near the bar so that families would feel more comfortable and welcome - but it seemed almost like they were discoraging the whole family with little ones idea.
