Great cabin next to beautiful mountain stream. Loved the location! Cabin was clean and perfect for us. Propane lights, wood burning stove, 3 beds, kitchen table. Even access to a shower 1/4 mile away!

What a great, very secluded cabin in the woods!
It was perfect and easy to get to, and it had an amazing River next to it! We slept with the windows cracked so we could hear the river at night.
Very peaceful and tranquil. Would love to come back!

We highly recommend considering this cabin if you are looking to get away from the Yellowstone crowds and enjoy a beautiful mountain. Great location with Gardiner and Yellowstone about 10 minutes away. Anything you could need in a primitive cabin has been thought of and provided by Lloyd and Becky.

Remote cabin, was more wilderness than expected. Beautiful area and so close to north entrance of Yellowstone. Road up to cabin was a bit rocky. Stars at night was amazing. Cabin was clean and homey. Next time we will book our horse rides with the stable. Can’t wait to explore the area more. I give this cabin and staff at stable a 10. Very happy campers. Grand kids were amazed.

We brought a stove, water, and sleeping gear and were surprised to find that all was provided.

The cozy cabins are well-maintained and positioned just far enough from everything else to provide a peaceful and private experience. Sleep to the sound of the creek and enjoy a comfortable, quiet, and relaxing stay.

Note: The road up to the lodge and back to the cabin can be a bit challenging for a low-clearance vehicle, but didn't stop us from enjoying the stay.

The cabin was perfect. I was with my two older sons that love the out doors. This cabin and location blew their mind. The affordable price on such short notice, combined with our own private little creek and homie little cabin, blew mine. If you want the real outdoor experience, but also a comfortable bed and locking door, this is the place. We left really early for Yellowstone so regretably we weren' t able to go horse back riding, I was a little sad we did not get to stay a little longer and enjoy it all but California calls... Thankyou Becky for saving us. Lol.

We had a fantastic time at Becky’s cabin. We got in late, but earlier in the day Becky texted me very clear directions to the cabin from the nearest town and we were able to find it with ease. The cabin was immaculate and everything we needed was readily available. The surrounding area is gorgeous and very private. We were only two people, but there were enough supplies (cots, bedding, silverware, etc) and space for a party of ~8 comfortably. The location is also impeccable, being only 20 minutes from the entrance to Yellowstone. It was a privilege to stay here and I look forward to returning! Note: there is no refrigeration in the cabin so a cooler is a good idea if one wishes to preserve perishables. 5/5 no question!

The cutest little cabin! I loved that it was a few feet from the water and had a nice outdoor space for a campfire and picnic
