Crevice Mountain Lodge
Reviewed 23 July 2017 via mobile

Ok, this is not by the road going to YNP. So, no, Crevice Mountain is not conveniently reached. There are plenty of indistinct buildings by the road in Gardiner in case that is what you are looking for. Yes, there are mosquitoes, and God Forbid, even wildlife roaming around the grounds, and if this is a problem, i suggest you get a nice DVD about the park and enjoy it in the quiet of your climatized living room.

This is what we got out of Crevice Mountain:
- Gorgeous views: looking across YNP like you have never seen (unless you have driven up inside the park for a couple of hours);
- Great hikes just around your cabin. Just go and explore. You will find yourself amidst amazing flowers, birds, animals - the cabin is less than 400m to the boundary of YNP!
- Fantastic history. Both Gardiner and Crevice Mountains were active mining settlements and in your hikes you will find remnants of a bygone era...
- Great attention: Cheryl is a great host, always guessing your wish, like: just walk there to see the sunset... go now otherwise it will be gone... or the sunny side up egg (from her own chickens!) my son craves for.
- Comfortable beds for a solid night of sleep: yup cabins are small, but the ZZZs are guaranteed! Maybe being st 8400 ft helps!!!
- horseback riding at your doorstep... don't miss it!

Having lived in and travelled around MT, this is the most real Montana experience you will ever had. Not many places have the combination of beauty, secrecy, history, nature and comfort. Two things you MUST DO while up at Crevice Mountain:
- enjoy a fire outside: drink a beer, have your kids enjoy S'mores (if you don't know it - just wikipedia it!)
- go outside from 11pm in July and look up to see the MOST LIT UP SKY, with planet, stars, shooting stars, for an unforgettable view.

This place gives you the real feel of being in the mountains!
Cheryl was a wonderful hostess. The food was excellent! The atmosphere
Up on the mountains was warm and cozy. Our cottage was cozy with its fireplace and very comfortable bed! Can't wait to go back again!!!

Room Tip: The view of the mountains is breathtaking from any window! The bed is extremely comfortable and co...

We spent 2 nights at Crevice Mountain Lodge in one of their comfy cabins. This was the best place we stayed on our 2 week trip through WY and MT. I wish we could have stayed a week. Cheryl was a very gracious host and welcomed us into her home for breakfast and dinner. The cabins were comfortable and clean. If you are adventurous there is plenty of exploring in the surrounding mountains. We will definitely stay here again! It exceeded my expectations.

Leave the crowds to find this beautiful and solitary place; it feels like stepping back in time. The host is a gem and will take care of you in every way. The food is excellent, the hiking is terrific. The view across the plateau is unparalleled, with hundreds of miles of completely unspoiled nature: not a road or building in sight. As you might have gathered from a different person's review, this isn't for everyone. If you are looking for a Hilton with concierge service, go somewhere else. It isn't rustic in the trendy style sense; it's a set of honest mountain cabins with a hundred years of history. As to the road: it's a pretty normal mountain dirt road. Take it slow, steer around the rocks and you'll be fine. A 4WD will certainly help. Plan on it taking you at least 30 minutes to make it up the mountain. One minor correction: listing says no kitchen facilities in cabin, but there is a decent wood-burning stove (bring a cast-iron skillet and cook away), as well as a kettle and coffee maker. What else do you need?

Can't recommend it enough. This was the perfect place for us; our only regret was that we weren't able to stay longer.

Thank you :) The county did bring up some road material finally now in October so the road is a better. I love sharing this place with the people it's made for. Like you said, it's not for everyone but it is real ! :)

I wish I could give six stars to Crevice Mountain Lodge. The proprietor went out of her way to make my wife and our two young kids comfortable and well fed. This place overlooks Yellowstone! Stare off into the park; explore her property; build a bonfire; go back for seconds (or thirds!) at dinner.

It's all right there and we can't wait to go back and visit.

It was great having your family and it's nice to know that we can help children experience fun without electronics.
