Absolutely beautiful location. Cabin very well equipped. Mule deer visiting every day. Very close to Wade and Cliff lakes which are gorgeous. Realy a very beautiful place. Watch the last step on the first section of stairs, it's taller than the rest. Beds were very comfortable but a little too small.
Manager Response:
Thank you for the kind review, Cindy and Ross! We apologize if you found the queen and two twin beds smaller than your preference of bed sizes. We hope to have you as guests again in the future if you are back in the area!
Very comfortable rental in a wonderful location, a great home away from home.

This was a great location with easy access to Wade lake and Yellowstone. The house was very comfortable and outfitted with everything we needed for our stay. We spent great mornings and evenings on the deck enjoying the lake view and the peace and quiet of the location.

We loved the location and view. Comfortable beds, great pillows. The washer and dryer were very handy. Lots of charm! We were surprised in seeing a fox with her kits, and a wood chuck that is living next to the shed. We also saw antelope. We were surprised that there were 16 steps up to the main level.
Manager Response:
Hi Kristi - Thank you for being our guests and we love it that you saw so much wildlife while you were there. It is such a quiet spot that there are lots of critters that come through. We're sorry that the steps were a surprise. For future guests: This is an "upside down house" with the kitchen, living area, master bedroom and the rooftop deck upstairs, in order to take advantage of the killer views to the lake. The main level has the second bedroom and a large media room. - Suzy
