Cute cottages. The best part though, was the down-to-earth owners. Very hospitable. I had talked to both over the phone before staying there and they are just as nice in person. Wish we could have spent more than one night here. We will make sure that this is our place to stay when we come back to Yellowstone!

We stayed here after visiting the West side of Yellowstone Park. The cottages are in a central location and only a short drive to nearby restaurants. The owners were very nice and take pride in caring for their cottages. The room was very clean and comfortable. We appreciated the mini frig and microwave. The hot tub was large and had...

Thank you for staying with us and your kind comments. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay and the hot tub overlooking the Yellowstone River. We are blessed to be located in the heart of Gardiner with restaurants, shops and a grocery store very close by as well as the North Entrance to Yellowstone National Park. We hope you...

Perfectly serviceable roadside inn just outside of Yellowstone. Best attributes include waking to a lovely view of the moon setting over Electric Peak, with the Yellowstone River just below our balcony. Also enjoyed the full working kitchen, which makes it easier for a family group who doesn't necessarily enjoy cowboy saloon grub every night. We visited in the winter, which...

We stayed here during a winter trip to Yellowstone NP and absolutely loved it! Firstly, we were provided a tour of the property and shown how to operate the Hot Tub which had views of the river and across to Yellowstone NP. We were then shown to our cottage which added a very nice personal touch. The cottage had everything...

Very nice hosts, Laura and Eddie Cox. Very clean. Excellent value for the area. We stayed in an "efficiency." On the downside, the "efficiency" size is quite small. For our purposes (just to sleep after spending our days in Yellowstone), however, perfectly adequate for our needs. Location is good. Right above the Yellowstone River. Lodging inside Yellowstone during the winter...

Thank you for staying with us. We are blessed with a wonderful location outside Yellowstone. The efficiency is a smaller room than our other units. We hope you will come back to see us and try one of our larger units.

Laura was delightful to work with and gave us invaluable information about Gardiner and Yellowstone! She was so helpful and even upgraded us to a bigger unit! The cottage was spacious and adorably decorated with a gorgeous bathroom and very large shower. I highly recommend Riverside Cottages especially the units that overlook the river. Gorgeous!!!!

Such a lovely place to stay! Priceless views with great customer service. The owner walked us through the property upon arriving, showing us exactly how everything works (from the hot tub to the tv controls). Really really amazing place. Great customer service and location.

Was in Yellowstone last week and with all in-Park lodging closed for the season, was able to secure lodging at Riverside. Firstly, let me state that the owner Laura is a joy; so very helpful and completely aimed to please. She walked me to the unit, showed me where everything was, how things worked, and then gave me the key....

We visit "The Park", several times per year. We generally end up staying at Riverside Cottages, if we get our reservations in early enough. Eddie and Laura are great Innkeepers and their place is just what we like. Rooms are spotless, view from the deck is outstanding and the proprietors bend over backwards to serve you. In our ratings, good...
