“Terrific Rental for Yellowstone Visit”
Reviewed 3 June 2015 for a stay in May 2015

This house was great for our 5 day visit to Yellowstone National Park. The rooms were large and furnished with beautiful, comfortable and sturdy furniture. The kitchen had modern appliances and loads of dishes, pots and pans, etc. The washer and dryer were also top of the line. While the house is 30 miles from the park, the drive is beautiful. We always saw wildlife on the drive or in the yard - rabbits, sage grouse, mule deer, etc. The house was also in a good location to visit Hot Springs and Livingstone and just an hour to the Bozeman Airport.
A perfect vacation house with large windows and spacious views. Be aware that there are no railings on the outside stairs or on the stairs leading to the upstairs bedrooms.

“Unbeatable!”
Reviewed 27 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

My wife and I stayed in Arcturus Lodge for twelve nights, and we enjoyed every minute of our stay. All we can do is to repeat the great many favourable comments already made, and endorse them wholeheartedly. Despite the many attractions of the house - and its situation - we did try to see more of this part of Montana, after three visits into YNP. In particular, Bozeman is a really attractive town, and the ghost towns of Virginia City and Nevada City are well worth a visit. Locally, Livingston and Gardiner are the obvious locations for supplies, but don't ignore Emigrant five miles away. We had two good meals at the Livery Stable and found the general store friendly and useful. Similarly, don't miss Chico Hot Springs. It is a fascinating quirky place, with a good - but not cheap - restaurant and also a poolside grill serving decent food. You can book a trail ride at the horse barn there. Finally, we would equally praise Mountain Home, the vacation rental agency through whom we booked the lodge. Its staff were incredibly efficient and friendly.

“Absolutely wonderful experience!”
Reviewed 3 September 2014 for a stay in August 2014

We stayed here for 3 nights to visit Yellowstone. My husband found this property on the internet and it was just superb. There was everything in the house you could ever want, including condiments, fresh water bottles, and beautiful toiletries, even a lip balm! The attention to detail in building this house was second to none! We are from Australia and if I could, I would pick this house up and move it to Adelaide! The views were amazing, including the deer passing by! We spent 2 days visiting Yellowstone and also the quaint town of Gardiner at the north entrance which was about a 30 minute drive, and the other day we just relaxed and enjoyed the house! The beds were so comfortable also. We loved it!

“Amazing!”
Reviewed 9 August 2014 for a stay in July 2014

This house is even more amazing than in the photos. I would be very happy to live in this beautiful house. Great views and ever so quiet except for the evening breezes coming from the surrounding hills. This house has everything that you could want to have a most memorable holiday. The only problem we had was trying to tear ourselves away from this lovely home and explore the beauties of Yellowstone.
