The Bar N Ranch looks amazing when you look at their website and the bottom floor is lovely--with lots of ranchy sorts of things about the place. But this is NOT like staying at a ranch. There are horses...we were told to stay away from them as someone else owns them. And, the breakfasts are not what you might expect...

Beautiful setting on the rangeland west of Yellowstone with mountains in the distance. Comprises a main lodge plus several cabins. Only cabins were available when we booked. Unfortunately, wi-fi is available only in main lodge and not the cabins, which was a major disappointment (can it be that expensive to run wi-fi 100 ft to the cabins?). The on-site restaurant...

Thank you for writing your review on TripAdvisor. One of the charms of the ranch is that we are located 6 miles outside of town and are an "unplugged resort". With no cable or internet in the rooms, it gives guests the opportunity to relax from the stresses of everyday life and enjoy the wildlife, sounds of nature, and the...

We spent 3 nights at the Bar N Ranch to visit the Yellowstone parc with my boyfriend. We had a lovely room facing an amazing view with a Fire place and Wood on the terrace. The hotel is gorgeous and very well decorated and staff is friendly and family style. Their restaurant is very good with amazing staff. Jenny took...

The 2 bedroom cabin we stayed in was in need of an update, The bathroom needed it the most! The lodge itself while a fairly nice structure was lifeless. The only part of this resort that was enjoyable was the newer restaurant and bar. If heading this way to enjoy the park, I would find a spot in West Yellowstone...

We stayed in the lodge. The staff was really nice, but the room left a bit to be desired. The bath was small with an old whirlpool bath that did not beacon me to use. As it had been promoted in the room description the size and cleanliness was a bit surprising. Bed was very comfortable. We did not use...

We loved the location and really enjoyed the restaurant. The staff was terrific. The cabins; however, were not clean or well equipped. They also seem to need some maintenance. The sink in our bathroom was missing a plunger, had a toothpaste cap stuck in the drain and had a very low water flow. We needed to ask for a re-supply...

The staff of young people were wonderful . The new restaurant quite nice. Unfortunately, that is where the praises stop. The owners , obviously, have not put any capital in the ranch for some time. Whether it is negligence or disinterest, it is inexcusable and portends eventual failure of the business. The rooms have not been updated in a very...

Please be aware that the menu at this restaurant does not match the very extensive menu displayed online, this was very disappointing. Had we known this, we would not have traveled several miles to eat there.

The cabin with hot tub, tv, small refrigerator was wonderful. Very well built and loved the views. Very comfortable. The added surprise was the food and service in the restaurant. Not much to look at from the outside, but the inside is very well decorated - even the bathrooms! The views were tremendous, but even better was the food. I...

I booked this hotel because of the rustic feel and cool experience that it would be. We were terribly disappointed. The cabins were pretty run down... while the language of the website was accurate, the photos make it seem like they are much nicer. They were dirty, old furniture, hard to keep out the bugs. The doors were hard to...
