Coming from the east coast the simplisty of the life out west took a little getting used to. No air conditioning was weird but we didn't spend any time in the cabin during the day(and the cabins are shaded so we left all the windows open during the day so it was a comfortable temp when we did get back,...

We were looking for somewhere to stay in West Yellowstone in order to visit the Park. West Yellowstone is adjacent to the West Entrance to the National Park. The first thing to say is that Bar N Ranch is not actually in West Yellowstone it's a good 5 or 6 miles West of the town. Added to that we drove...

Our room was in the main lodge. It was excellent, it included a fireplace and a Jacuzzi tub. There is easy to use WiFi, but no elevator (not an issue for us) We open the window and enjoyed hearing the cows at night.

I am very conflicted about this hotel/lodge. On the one hand, there are areas that are gorgeous: the great room has a wonderful view and the woodwork is amazing. The room was pretty and there were a lot of nice touches. The staff was friendly and helpful. On the other hand, this place is 6-7 miles west of West Yellowstone,...

This place is living off of old reviews. It was one of the biggest disappointments I've ever experienced in traveling. The lack of cleanliness and maintenance is very evident. We prepaid for two nights and left after one. Enough said.

This bed and breakfast was in a really good location. Our room was excellent. When we went on our back porch that evening a fox was right there. Pretty awesome. However, was very disappointed in the breakfast. Thought it would have been a lot better. Have had better at Holiday Inn. Didn't get to try the restaurant the night before,...

Their cabins are desperately in need of repair. If you want to use your bathroom, you will either need to prop the door open or hold the door closed with your foot. DO NOT STAY HERE! No door is level so they swing. The cabins have no insulation so it is either really cold or really hot. The windows do...

We stayed in a lodge room facing east (one of two rooms which face this way). I will say the property has some very nice features including comfortable beds and nice common area rooms.
