Truly the best place we've rented on VRBO - in all aspects. The beauty of the lodge and the surroundings is something you have to experience yourself. The pictures don't do it justice. The owner really does bend over backwards to make sure your stay is comfortable and she guides you to local places and hikes. Basically, you get a 5 star place to stay and a tour guide in one. You really do look into Yellowstone form sitting on the deck or inside the home - can't beat it. Gardiner is close for groceries and a place to eat. The lodge itself is clean and once again - have to experience it yourself. Do yourself a favor - stay here.
