Lovely house, lots of space, fabulously stocked kitchen

  • 5 of 5

We loved the house. Great location right at the edge of the village. Easy walking distance into town. Maggie, the owner, was friendly and easy to deal with and stopped by to see if everything was OK. I would definitely rent again.

West Yellowstone House

  • 5 of 5

Great house for large families or groups. Very clean and looks to have been remodeled recently. I am always cautious about how pictures will compare to the real thing, in this case the real thing was much better. My wife and I stayed here with four children and all had plenty of space. Plenty of dishes and everything was in good condition. I would definitely stay here again. 5 minutes from Yellowstone West Entrance.

Great!

  • 5 of 5

We had an out-sized family group for our Yellowstone time, and this house met our needs perfectly. There were lots of bedrooms and an adequate number of bathrooms for 15 people. We were cooking all of our meals at the house, and the kitchen saw a LOT of use. Could have been more tableware and silverware, but recall we had a really large group. The two fridges allowed plenty of storage, and the rest of the appliances worked well. One night we had a patio cookout, which was really pleasant. The grill worked well. Beds were comfy, and there were nice towels. House was clean with no issues noticed. About the only improvement would have been having a panoramic view of the mountains, but I guess you can't have everything!

Maggie was great to work with, and made sure we had everything we needed. She even added muffin pans when I asked about them---and we used them 5 times! Everyone in our party said they'd stay there again on the next trip to Yellowstone. A+

Owner's Response: Thanks Jeff! I'm glad your stay at Blue Cloud House was a good one! And thanks for the heads up on the flatware- I guess over time pieces get misplaced/ lost I have extra sets, so I'll get some more over there!! Wish I'd known you were short, I'd have brought some over in a jiffy! Thanks again! Maggie

Great location!!

  • 5 of 5

The location was great for visiting Yellowstone! The house was very clean and nicely stocked with soap, shampoo, conditioner, laundry detergent, toilet paper, and paper towels. There were two refrigerators which would come in very handy for a larger group. Maggie was very easy to work with and responded quickly to emails.

Great comfortable and well appointed cabin in West Yellowstone

  • 5 of 5

Our group rented the Blue Cloud house as a base for snowmobiling the West Yellowstone area and skiing Big Sky. The cabin was larger than expected, comfortable, and very well stocked. We will definitely consider the Blue Cloud house for our next visit.
