Grizzly Den - Above the River! Views! 6 Blocks from Yellowstone Park
average rating of 4.5625 based on 16 reviews

Fabulous views of Yellowstone River, wildlife and Electric Peak

  • 5 of 5

Grizzly Den was the perfect place for our two families, with teenage boys, to call home over a three day weekend in this winter. Everyone had their own area to stretch out and relax when not cross country skiing, soaking in the Gardner River where the Boiling River runs in, or playing games. The southwest side of the house is filled with many windows. Pack your binoculars because elk, bison, deer and antelope are grazing on the foothills across the Yellowstone River (at least during our visit).

The location is only a few miles from the north entrance to Yellowstone National Park. This allowed more time skiing and soaking, and less time driving.

The kitchen was pretty well stocked with pots, pans, etc. and had a dishwasher which is always appreciated.

The upstairs would be extra fun for younger children as there are a couple lofts and smaller areas built in for playing and exploring.

The Owner was very responsive to questions. We will definitely consider renting this property the next time we plan a trip to the north part of Yellowstone Park!

Great location, great property

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Grizzly Den. This property has several things going for it, It is roomy and well equipped, its views are unsurpassed and its location is convenient. We came home from a chilly morning wildlife viewing to enjoy the sight of a bald eagle hunting on the Yellowstone River right outside our window. Our one small problem was handled quickly by the owner. If we come back to Gardiner, (and I hope we do) we will definitely want to stay here again.

A very cosy house in a charming little town

  • 3 of 5

The Grizzly den is a very comfortable and surprising house. You will find hidden rooms and it will be a real pleasure for the kids to find out where they want to sleep. The house has everything you need including a wonderful terrace overlooking the Gardiner river. The entire house is cosy and charming and you will feel home very quickly

Well equipped comfortable house in Gardiner MT

  • 5 of 5

We spent three nights in the Grizzly Den, traveling through Yellowstone during the day and coming back to eat, play and rest. We had some trouble finding the house at first despite very extensive instructions, but found it, and found it to be great. The house is in good shape, there are two main bedrooms with attached bathrooms, and there are lots of fold out beds, bunk beds and mattresses for other people to sleep in. The kitchen is very well equipped with plates, utensils, pots and pans and even condiments and other ingredients. The deck overlooking the river is great, and we put the gas barbecue to great use grilling steaks. There were even toys and games for kids in the various drawers which kept our kids entertained. The house is located very close to a gas station, a nice cafe, and a convenience store so we were able to stock up and hit the park early in the morning.

Great Place for Kids

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at the Grizzly Den. It was a great spot for kids. They loved all the little "hide-outs" that the house had to offer. The grown ups enjoyed the porch with the view of the river. It was a quick and easy access to Yellowstone. Thanks for everything. If we come back we would differently stay here again.

Excellent location, setting and accommodations.

  • 5 of 5

You couldn't ask for a better location than what the Grizzly Den provides, just outside Yellowstone's north entrance in the charming town of Gardiner. There was plenty of room for the five of us; in fact, it probably could accommodate twice as many. Barbecuing on the back deck overlooking the Yellowstone River after seeing all the elk in "downtown" Mammoth Hot Springs and then having to stop the car while a herd of bison paraded just doesn't get much better than that!

The property was very clean and well-maintained. Customer service was excellent! We would definitely recommend the Grizzly Den to friends and relatives.
