Yellowstone Vacation

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed here for 3 nights during our recent Yellowstone vacation. We loved the house, and the boys (ages 9 & 15) loved sleeping in the loft area. Awesome views from the floor to ceiling windows in the great room. Note that the bedrooms are in the basement with the exception of the loft. I ended up sleeping in the loft with my boys because they didn't want to be that far away from me in an unfamiliar place. It wasn't a huge issue since there were only 4 people in our group. The owner was doing some work on the house while we were there and was very friendly. The house location was great...convenient to West Yellowstone without having to deal with the crowds. It was so nice to come back to an actual house after a long day in the park instead of a cramped hotel room. I would definitely stay here again if we come back to the area!

West Yellowstone Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We recently spent a week visiting Yellowstone National Park and could not have chosen a better location to use as our home base; only 7 miles to the park's west entrance. The beautiful log cabin style home was just superb!. Plenty of room, comfortable beds, great large kitchen, awesome open concept with floor to ceiling windows in the front of the house showing off those amazing Montana sunsets. Nice patio/yard with bbq and fire pit. Regrettably for us, we didn't get to utilize that too much as we spent so much time in the park! Very close to horseback riding (again, we didn't get around to that this trip). Close to the town of West Yellowstone with good grocery store and lots of restaurant choices.

Would highly recommend -- plenty of beds for large family get togethers. Would return if ever back in West Yellowstone.

Great cabin!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the AC Inn from 7/17-7/23/16. There were 5 adults and two children in our group. We had plenty of room and the cabin was very clean. We really appreciated the fully stocked kitchen. We loved grilling out on the beautiful evenings and we enjoyed making s'mores in the fire pit. Michael stopped by to chat and make sure that we had everything we needed. You couldn't ask for a more welcoming host. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this place to others.
