Guestbook comments from the owner
We had a fantastic time at time at your lovely home. Everything was perfect. The house was gorgeous and wonderfully equipped - kitchen equipment, games, DVDs, paintings, outdoor furniture etc. and a fantastic amount of information provided. Michelle and the girls have a great passion for all things to do with bears so your bedspreads etc. went down very well.
As you said the house was very large but actually felt very cosy and welcoming. Despite the size of the house our two youngest daughters decided to share the upstairs bedroom. Even the weather was great (warmer than we expected, particularly in the evenings). We had a great time sitting out on the deck for breakfast and in the evenings and the views were absolutely magnificent - the reason we were so keen to visit this area in the first place. Although there were some fires - Emigrant and three I think in Yellowstone, they only affected us very marginally with a bit of haze from time-to-time, unlike the situation when we visited Yosemite a few years ago where we almost got caught in the middle of a fire. The girls and I made great use of the basketball hoop and we all made quite a lot of use of the hot tub.
I think we visited every one of the list of 'must see' sights that you kindly provided and a few more besides. We particularly liked:
· The Canyon (we did a fantastic rim walk there which avoided the crowds and got us very close to the falls);
· Yellowstone Lake which was placid, looked fantastic and had very few people;
· 'Morning Glory' which was unbelievably colourful - and also un-crowded as most people appear to go to Old Faithful then leave.
· The Midway Geyser basin – which again was so colourful
We saw most animals – but unfortunately no bears except ‘Brutus’ and friends in the compound on the way to Bozeman.
We also spent quite a lot of time in Bozeman itself (which we really liked), we went rafting from Gardiner down the river which was excellent and went to Nevada & Virginia City on one day, the best part of which was the drive because the scenery was magnificent. We did not attempt to go further afield to Grand Teton or the Bear Tooth Pass because there was plenty that we wanted to do nearer.
Many thanks for letting us use your amazing house. When things settle down a bit I would be delighted to write a five-star review and probably send you a few pictures which illustrate the fantastic time we had there.
