Summer 2020 Season and the Covid-19 Challenges
I hope in this new world that we are experiencing the worst thing can be the things we know and the things that we don't. Let me begin by giving you an update.
Things that we know for the 2021...
Our Cancelation Policy is Very liberal being only 72 hours prior to your stay.

* This 2020 Covid-19, was an unexpected and unprecedented event in our lifetimes. I'm truly grateful for all of the medical staff and the emergency development of the treatments and vaccines.  I'm truly hopeful that we do not have to experience this again.


* Yellowstone Park and Grand Teton National Park has some complex issues in opening back to the state that we knew in 2019 please visit there website for full details as they change regularly. The West Entrance opened as scheduled on April 16, 2021, we hope to have all the ice out of our water lines and be ready for overnight stays on May 10th, 2021.

* The Mask orders are still currently in place at least until May 27 for Gallatin County, Montana, if it changes you will see the signs come down at the businesses. We do not question you for wearing a mask should you choose to do so.  The National Park is a Federal administered Property and the President has Mandated Masks in all buildings and where you can not social distance.

* We have always strived to maintain a clean and sanitary facility.  We laundry all blankets and linens between guests.  Our stylish quilts have been removed temporarily until we can determine a way to sanitize between stays without damaging them.

* Air travel is limited as defined by the individual airlines, please contact them for the best up to date information.  Delta/SLC and United/Denver are Serving West Yellowstone with two flights each.

* Here in West Yellowstone, we do not have a hospital, with the nearest one 50 miles away and they too are limited in available beds and services. Please only travel if your are healthy and not having any symptoms of illness of any kind.


* Food establishments are operating with modified guidelines monitored by the County Health and Human Services.  If you don't feel comfortable, then you might consider delaying your travel.

* The Vendors in the Park, have sent letters out saying that they will not be opening all of their operations until they have staffing and the abilities to be safe for you, not all foods, restrooms are available in the big venues.  See the Yellowstone National Park website for details


* There are Bears out of hibernation and we have had a recent Grizzly interaction that resulted in a fatality. Wolves are being seen everywhere, even in town and near our home.  There is every reason to be safe around them, bears don't care if you wear a mask, keep your distance at least, 100 yards/meters. We sell bare-spray at cost in the Gift Shop, please do not take chances, this is a serious deal if you have an interaction with a Bear.

ugh this.

*We don't know where the Bears and Wolves will be when you arrive. Other than the Bear and Wolf Discovery Center here in West Yellowstone they are always there and easy to see, this is a worth while experience.

If you have made your stay through Expedia or any 3rd parties you will need to contact them directly to cancel.

Remain Calm, Our Cancelation Policy is Very liberal being only 72 hours prior to your stay, please make sure that you give other guests the time to book the room if you feel as though you are going to modify your summer travel plans.


Feel free to call or email us if you have any questions.
