Great cabin, great facility, no A/C, sky-high NP prices

The cabins are part of a larger facility that includes lodge rooms, a restaurant, a camp store, and a gas station, all a short walk from the cabins. The cabin itself is spacious and inviting—the two rocking chairs on the front porch are a nice touch; I enjoyed a cold camp-store beer while rocking and relaxing. The interior was super clean and everything was in good working order. The room was remarkable, though, for the things it didn’t have: a refrigerator, a microwave, and (get this) an air conditioner. Yep, July heat with no A/C. That last one was a real head-scratcher. Of course the price was double what you’d expect to pay anywhere else, but the National Park locations always command that steep price.

Best Place to Stay for Yellowstone

This is the best place to stay when visiting Yellowstone. It is only a mile from the South Entrance so convenient to all the must see areas of the park. It is a small property so I felt very well taken care of and not overcrowded like some other places in the area. The restaurant is full off super high qualify, fresh, local, homemade dishes. There is a gas station and mini grocery store on site. The front desk and gift shop staff are nice & helpful. The beds are soft, and I was so happy and grateful I picked this place the entire time I was there. Not far from Grand Teton or Jackson Hole airport either. Highly recommend.

Stay here and take advantage of visiting both national parks!

We had a fantastic experience here! We spoke with the front desk manager prior to our trip to have an idea of the layout of the property, a better understanding of the amenities, and who would respond in the event of an emergency. We felt much more at ease traveling/staying there with our child who has epilepsy and autism after speaking with Susan. The staff we interacted with at the front desk, housekeeping, gift shop, convenience store and restaurant were always professional, friendly and helpful. We appreciated the amenities of our deluxe cabin since it allowed us to keep food for breakfast, lunch and snacks on hand to keep our food costs down. We usually had dinner at the lodge restaurant and every meal there was delicious. The service was great but not always quick so I'm glad we chose to eat our last meal of each day there so that we weren't ever rushed to eat and get to an activity on time. Our cabin's accommodations were comfortable and spacious enough for the 3 of us. We used the laundromat on site half-way through our trip; it was great to have this available because we had packed as lightly as possible and had to wash clothing to have outfits for the remainder of our trip. The only downside is the mosquitoes which are prevalent from the beginning of spring until mid-July. Since this property is situated in the woods, you have to be prepared for the mosquitoes. If you want a property that offers a lot of comforts/conveniences and amenities, and you are planning to stay at a location that is between Yellowstone and the Grand Tetons so that you can visit both parks then we recommend Flagg Ranch!

Disappointing stay

If coming from Grand Tetons it might be worth one night but it’s not worth the splurge. Mosquitoes everywhere and this is not the case in the surrounding area. Basics like a min fridge are only included in “deluxe” cabins. Not near any restaurants and without a mini fridge or microwave your options are limited. Room was clean and pillows and beds were decent. Would not recommend.

Awful if you have a reservation cancel it!

The room was full of mosquitoes when we arrived. We probably killed about 50 before we went to dinner. It was also very hot and stuffy. There was no air conditioning and the room faced west, close to the river, with no trees to provide shade so it was even hotter than a cabin would normally be. You couldn’t open the windows or the patio door because of the swarms of mosquitoes. A fan was provided but even that wasn’t sufficient because the amount of air it could circulate was weak. All in all for a room in excess of $400 dollars per night if I could give it a -10 I would. We didn’t bother saying anything because we looked at the cancellation policy and we would have forfeited nearly a $1000 to leave. The right thing to do would be to refund our money.
