Into Yellowstone

A travel blog entry by jmogle

Made it into West Yellowstone today. I drove through Gardiner and the NE gate of the park to head to West Yellowstone. A lot of snow in the park. When I got to the Hibernation Station, my cabin I had reserved was still snowed in. So I got upgraded to a cabin with a jacuzzi. That was nice. I made a run by Earthquake Lake the next day(Visitors center …

... the ski style.  It’s really looking like Dinner Plain in Vic but with lots of grass – very pretty.  The horses are actually eating grass in this area, unlike the ones until now who have been kept in little yards with lots of red dirt and hand fed.  It’s lucky they don’t get colic.  The areas now are irrigated and my tongue is hanging out as there are broadacres of lucerne being grown.

    Historical Traveler Reviews Hibernation Station West Yellowstone

    Atmosphere

    from

    We arrived on Sept 16, 2004 we spent 4 nights the log cabins were beautiful the downside was the poor reception on the television which is important because there is no evening entertainment. when asked to fix the reception we were told it was due to weather conditions of which there was no snow. At checkout we asked for some sort of compensation due to television reception and they were very uncooperative for the price that we paid 250.00 a night we expected at least better service.

    Hibernation Station, West Yellowstone

    from

    My brother and sister-in-law, and my husband and I stayed at Hibernation Station in June, 2003. We were on a motorcycle vacation through Yellowstone, and needed to check in early due to "snow conditions". We found the staff extremely accommodating, and the cabin was exceptionally clean and comfortable. It was, by far, the best place we stayed at for our entire vacation. We were sorry we had reserved with them for only one night. We would go back to Hibernation Station again in a heartbeat. We only regretted that we had not reserved for our entire vacation. We found Hibernation Station highly superior to our stays at Old Faithful Inn and Mammoth Hot Springs' accommodations.

    Best place we've stayed in years

    from

    There was a light dusting of snow the first night that we stayed there. We've been coming back ever since 1994. You can sometimes hear the wolves at night from the privacy of the in room hot tub. This is the nicest and most comfortable place that I can recommend. Down comforters on the beds, fireplace, hot tub, heated floors, and privacy!

    What else could you ask for?

    We're on our way in in two months.

    Never again

    from

    I stayed there in June '04. I wish I had not. It was dirty and dark. There was so much wrong with this room . It is a cute idea ..and when you first walk in you think how charming.. Til u see the worn ripped sheets, bath facet that sprays all over, shower that is disgusting and floors that look like they were never mopped. They are WAY over priced as well.

    Better than a motel, but.......

    from

    My family and I rented two cabins at Hibernation Station June 1st - the 4th. We reserved cabins 9 & 10. Upon arrival we were informed we had been given cabin 8 instead of 10 because the heat wasn't working. However, that evening someone else moved into cabin 10 without us being given the option of taking that cabin since it was originally reserved by us. We would have preferred that cabin since it was on a corner. Our ceiling fan didn't work, and the TV would not turn off. The only way to turn it off was to unplug it. We were unable to make outgoing calls because "all the circuits were busy" every time we tried. The decor of the cabins is lovely, the bathrooms are roomy and clean. But we had the impression this place was on the edge of the park and in fact it is completely asphalt paved and surrounded by empty dirt lots, hotels, and trailer parks. I must say that although Hibernation Station wasn't exactly what I thought and has a few bugs, it is still much preferable to any motel.

    Could Have Stayed a Month!

    We stayed at Hibernation Station in October of 2003. We loved it and wished we could have stayed longer, but the trip did not permit it. Of all the places we stayed in the Idaho, Wyoming and Montana area, it was one of our very favorites, and the couple we travelled with would agree. Wish I were there right now! Laurel Ryan

    The Hibernation Station has potential, but it has a some bugs it needs to work out. The log cabins are quaint, comfortably sized. When the on-premises trees grow, it will be much nicer aesthetically.

    Did not work out well for us

    from

    My wife and I started saving three years ago to go to Europe for our 20th anniversary. But, earlier in the year with the international situation so unsettled, we decided to postpone the trip overseas and do some domestic travel. We had never been to Yellowstone National Park, so we decided to take a driving trip.Since it was already late in the game, we were not able to get reservations at any of the lodges inside the park. So, we went searching on the Internet and found a place called Hibernation Station in West Yellowstone, Montana.The website invites travelers to experience the pristine beauty of their luxurious cabins, and talks about streams, lakes, fly fishing, trails and other outdoor adventures.This sounded like the place for us. So, we made a reservation for five nights, and gave them permission to charge our credit card for the first night as a deposit.Upon arriving in the town of West Yellowstone, we easily found Hibernation Station. But, we were immediately disappointed. To see that it was not located in a wilderness area as we had imagined, the cabins were set in an paved parking lot.We checked in, and were shown to our cabin, which was set in a dirt and gravel with no grass or trees, right next to a trailer park.I will say that the inside of the cabin itself was very attractive, and looked exactly depicted on the website. There was a kitchen with a dining table, a fireplace, two queen beds, a television, a telephone and large restroom. There was also a separate bedroom with a queen size bed and another television.In looking over the kitchen, we noticed that while there was a full size refrigerator, there was no stove. We called to the front desk to ask how we were supposed to cook, and the clerk told us that there was a hot plate in one of the cupboards.The website advertised satellite TV, which may well have been true, but both TVs could only pick up four stations clearly, which did not include the three major networks.The area was experiencing a record heat wave, and the cabin did not have air conditioning. There were no ceiling fans, or other cooling devices, making it very uncomfortable, even at night.The door from the master bedroom to the bathroom would not close properly. If you forced it to close, you risked not being able to open it again.Our cabin #27 was one of four two-story units on the property. Our neighbors upstairs were apparently part of a much larger group, that included a lot of children, who were invited to come up and play, causing an unreasonable amount of noise above us. Also, the plumbing was very noisy, so when the upstairs family would shower, there would be a very loud groaning noise that would continue during the entire shower. We could also hear the water coming down the pipes in the walls. When someone upstairs would flush the toilet, we could not only hear the plumbing noises but the sound of whatever they flushed trickling down our walls.Within about an hour of arriving, my wife went to the front desk to complain and ask to be moved. They asked us to check back a little later and they would see what they could do.We went and had dinner, and came back. At that time we were told that there was nothing they could do for us, other than ask the people upstairs to try and make less noise. When my wife pointed out that there seemed to be several empty cabins, the clerk said that there were, but that the empty cabins had dont move orders on them.The people upstairs were not going out of their way to be noisy. In our opinion, the cabin was poorly constructed. We have stayed downstairs in other places many times and not been disturbed.Since we had already paid for the first night long ago, we decided to stick it out, in good faith, and perhaps we could make the best of it.It was so hot in the cabin; we were forced to sleep with the windows open. This made us very uncomfortable having our daughters sleeping in the next room, with all the recent stories about children being taken from their beds by kidnappers.Between the heat and the noise upstairs, we got very little sleep that night. So, the next morning I went around town to see if any of the hotels had space. We found space at the local Holiday Inn, and went back to Hibernation Station to check out.When I came to the front desk and let them know that we would be leaving, I was informed that I would be held responsible for all of the nights on my reservation, regardless of when we left. The outstanding balance was over $1,100.00, and we would not receive a refund.I told them that I would take the matter up with my credit card company, because I felt that they had misrepresented the property in their advertising and failed to provide adequate accommodations.The next day, I drove by the cabin and could see that they had rented it to someone else. I had hoped that when I received my credit card bill, I would see that I had been credited for the four nights that we did not use. However, they did charge the card thus receiving a double rental on the cabin. The matter is in dispute with our credit card company at this time.It is possible that someone with different expectations could have a good time at Hibernation Station. We did not. We expected a wilderness resort. Instead we were in a parking lot, within walking distance to McDonalds. It would certainly be more comfortable in the wintertime, with snow outside and the fireplace roaring. I would not recommend this establishment to anyone during the summer.

    Very comfortable

    The Hibernation station is a great place to stay, it is located right on the edge of West Yellowstone an is about a stones throw away from the West entrance of the park.
