West Yellowstone House

  • 5 of 5

Great house for large families or groups. Very clean and looks to have been remodeled recently. I am always cautious about how pictures will compare to the real thing, in this case the real thing was much better. My wife and I stayed here with four children and all had plenty of space. Plenty of dishes and everything was in good condition. I would definitely stay here again. 5 minutes from Yellowstone West Entrance.

Blue Cloud House - West Yellowstone

  • 5 of 5

Our extended family loved this property. 15 people managed very well with the five bedrooms and large living space. The kitchen is well stocked with pans and dishes. Bathrooms are large with plenty of towels, even some toiletries. The owner checked on us upon arrival and just before departure. Great service. We would recommend this to any and all vacationers.

The Blue Cloud is a gem in West Yellowstone!

  • 5 of 5

The property was well-maintained, extremely clean and well stocked. The owner supplied "the little extras" that make all the difference when you're away from home like shampoo, body lotion etc... The kitchen was stocked with every type of gadget one could ask for. Check in was painless, no hunting for keys and having to call for directions the last minute as we have experienced with other properties. The owner had all the information one could ask for on the vrbo website.

Overall a fantastic experience that we would highly recommend to anyone!

Beautiful Blue Cloud House

  • 5 of 5

We were pleasantly surprised at the space and coziness of this wonderful house. It was "home" to us for a week as we traversed in and out of Yellowstone National Park. Many amenities were surprisingly provided. We ate breakfast and dinner here so we thoroughly enjoyed 2 refrigerators for 4 cooks and the outdoor grill for the MEN. hee hee The kids took up the breakfast bar; adults enjoyed the spacious dining table.The beds were comfy and warm bedding provided with extras found in most closets.

Everything in this cute town was also conveniently located - loved the homemade ice cream! We only found one grocery store but it was all we needed.

We saw the resident fox most nights and a friendly pooch came to visit - usually when we were cooking and one grandson played on the steps with it a few times. (we did NOT let it into the house!)

There were plenty of attraction maps available; a map of the town would have been nice, too.

The communications with Maggie prior to our visit were friendly and informative; it was nice to feel like we had a friend there and we would definitely make this a family vacation destination, again.

Wonderful cabin in West Yellowstone

  • 5 of 5

A group of us working in Yellowstone NP stayed in the blue cloud house several times in the past few years. We love returning to the cabin and find it very cozy, clean, and well supplied. The five bedrooms are very comfortable and the kitchen is well stocked. It is very easy to deal with the owner who is always very accommodating. We highly recommend Blue Cloud House.

Ideal Location for the Yellowstone Half-Marathon with all the comforts of home!

  • 5 of 5

Someone in our group of friends started the crazy notion of running the Yellowstone Half Marathon on June 13th and before you could say "bear spray" 7 of us had signed up. Thus began the hunt for a place to stay and we could not have selected a better located or more comfortable accommodation than the Blue Cloud House.

Located mere steps from the start of the race the house provided all the comforts of home at a fraction of the cost of a hotel. A fully stocked kitchen with a dishwasher, freshly made beds, a washer/dryer and two full bathrooms provided the perfect base for us to explore amazing Yellowstone Park, enjoy walking to the town of West Yellowstone and then WALKING to the start of the race. No port-o-potties for this group!

Other than a very dirty grill which could use replacing, one broken hairdryer and incorrect directions for the Direct-TV which a quick phone call corrected - everything else in the house worked flawlessly and we could not have been more pleased with our choice.

If you ever decided to attempt the Yellowstone Half-Marathon - Blue Cloud House is the place for you. If you want a lovely and comfortable home base from which to explore all Yellowstone has to offer - Blue Cloud House is for you. If you just want to get away - Blue Cloud house is for you. Walk to town, ample parking, quiet end-of-the-road location near trails and woods - this house offers a perfect Montana escape.

Thanks for sharing your lovely property with us - and yes, we all completed the race - one of us even placed in his age group - thanks Blue Cloud House!
