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.

Fabulous house! Great location in town, close to everything

  • 5 of 5

our group had a great winter stay! The house had everything we needed, convenient to the trails and to downtown fun. Would highly recommend Blue Cloud House for any group, family or friends! Plenty of room, comfortable beds, great kitchen and the fireplace was relaxing and so comfortable after a day in the outdoors.

Great place to stay! Perfect for large groups

  • 5 of 5

Our university ski team had a great 2 week stay here in January 2018. The house is really well set up for large groups and the 2 fridges ended up being a huge help! This allows you to stock up on groceries in Bozeman/Idaho Falls as the grocery options in West Yellowstone are pretty limited/expensive. The owner was great to work with and very accommodating! She let us use the garage for ski storage and preparation and was very helpful when we requested to extend our stay last minute. Well for sure try and stay here again next time we’re in West Yellowstone!
