My husband and I loved everything about staying at this lodge. We had our own 1 bedroom cabin that was newly renovated and beautiful. The place was so relaxing and the staff made our trip wonderful. We had our own hot rub and bbq grill. The lodge also has a restaurant with great wine and food! You and your family...

If you are expecting luxury go elsewhere. My wife and I were expecting an enjoyable stay in comfortable accomodations with good ammenities. What we walked into was straight out of National Lampoons "Vacation". The room (Colter) was cramped at best. I had more space in my barracks room when I was in the Marine Corps. Other reviewers were correct in...

Go here to see what West Yellowstone has to offer, go here to relax, or go here for the delicious food. Whatever the reason, I think you’ll like it! Since there were five of us we had two rooms at the end of the second floor hallway with a separate door that allowed us to keep our bedroom doors open...

(preface to say we didn't travel in March 2011, but the site requires that we put in the date. We traveled here in August of 2004--sorry so late in reviewing, but we're planning a trip back and this place popped into mind as a "must stay again" place!) We loved this place and are planning to return very soon. It's...

We stayed at the Bar-N-Ranch in September,2011 for five nights. We absolutely loved it. The ambiance of a lodge and cabins on 200 acreas outside of West Yellowstone was breathtaking. We stayed in the Bear Creek Cabin, one bedroom,log cabin,fireplace...it was small but very quaint and cozy with a fireplace. We enjoyed the breakfast that accompanies the price of staying...

The Bar N Ranch was a real nice surprise, the fam just loved it, we always looked forward to a long day in the park, ... kids loved breakfast every morning in the restaurant. The only drawback was the restaurant was closed for dinner, as we heard it, used to be one of the best.

This review is a little belated, but it was written at the time of our stay and never uploaded. We spent 5 nights at Bar N Ranch during the last week of May 2010. For the first three nights, we stayed in a 1-bedroom cabin known as “Cache Creek” or Cabin 1. Because we booked at the last minute, we...

Muddy, cramped and grossly overpriced sum up the experience. Scenic views of corrogated fencing trying to mask mobile home. If this place had been priced at around $80 per night, it would have been tolerable. For God's sake, do something about the huge potholes. It was a very long drive to get anywhere. I may never trust photos again.

We headed up to W. Yellowstone after a few days in Jackson Hole for a wedding. The Bar N has a main lodge with a number of rooms as well as cabins located outside of the lodge and I believe the entire facility was all wedding party for 3 nights! My husband and I stayed at Bar N Ranch for...

It is not easy to find an upscale place to stay in this region of Yellowstone. Bar N Ranch met our requirements. It is outside the town and park. It has it's own very good restaurant. It includes breakfast. It has a beautiful park, river to relax at. The staff are accomodating. The Roaring room has a lovely balcony overlooking...
