Location is to die for, with the Yellowstone River flowing just outside the door. We stayed in the cabin apart from the main house and it was SO peaceful - no disturbance whatsoever from traffic or neighbors. As employees of Yellowstone Park, the hosts share their extensive knowledge regarding where to go and what to see. Breakfasts were all wonderful...

We wanted to see Yellowstone in the winter. Wow! We did. Wolves howling, herds of elk and bison, coyote and fox leaping to pounce through the snow. Towering pillars of steam in the cold air. Exquisite skiing and snowshoeing during the day and then returning to a warm, cozy cabin on the bank of the Yellowstone River underneath a sky...

This B&B is located just north of the north entrance to Yellowstone in Gardiner, Montana. This was the perfect place for 6 couples (each 60+) to have a reunion and visit Yellowstone and the nearby attractions. Our hosts provided a full, over-the-top hot breakfast each morning in a large dining room with a fantastic view of Electric Peak, the Yellowstone...

I couldn't wait to return each night to have a cold frosty beer and watch the Yellowstone river roar by and have a view of Electric Peak. It was very relaxing.

Headwaters of the Yellowstone is located just outside of Gardiner, MT, on the banks of the Yellowstone River. The B&B has a number of rooms available, as well as some cabins. We stayed in the Elk Room for three nights in late May of 2009. We cannot say enough good things about this establishment and the people who run it....

Outstanding accommodations and proprietors. A perfect place from which to explore Yellowstone National Park. Next to the Yellowstone River (mere footsteps away) and with a view of Electric Peak and the towering Gallatin Range of mountains.
