To make a reservation, you will need to make phone contact with Jeff or Oly so they can answer any questions you may have and get any information needed from you.
Because of the limited availability of accommodations in West Yellowstone that can handle larger groups, we recommend that you book your dates at least one year in advance to ensure the dates you would like. Even then, we have reservations being made up to two years from some groups arrival dates.
We currently have a 30 day advanced notice cancellation policy. If a group cancels before 30 days of arrival a 90% of the deposit will be refunded and 10% will be held as a handling fee. If the reservation is cancelled within 30 days of arrival the full deposit is nonrefundable, however we will happily apply the deposit to any future reservation with Cabin West Lodging.
Yes, We require a first nights deposit by either personal check, money order or credit card to hold all reservations.
No, due to cleaning issues and pet allergies of other guests, we have a strict no pets policy.
Each house has a maximum occupancy limit we have established due to our stock of kitchen items, towels, bedding and other stocked items. These occupancy limits are also established with our fire code inspection and have been accepted to not exceed the maximums. Yes, children are people too and are counted as such in our maximum occupancy limits. Maximum occupancies are strictly set and not to be exceeded.
We do not require a cleaning fee for our cabins and we have left it up to our guests to treat our homes as their own. We do have a suggested cleaning and check list at each cabin to help ensure there are no issues when checking out.
Check in is at 4 p.m. for all of our houses. Under special circumstances, we can get a group in earlier than 4 p.m., however we will need to authorize any early check in requests.
Check out is always 10 a.m. Again, under special circumstances we can authorize a late check out, but these requests need to be made in advance and not the morning of check out.

There are specific rules when using the fire pit on property that are listed in the information sheet at check in. Some of these rules include no burning when a fire restriction is in place and never burn when it is windy outside.
No, we have limited common area and parking and reserve this space for parking of guests vehicles only. Guests staying in an RV but using the utilities in our houses are considered as part of the maximum occupancy for that house.

Yellowstone does have opening and closing dates that typically fall around mid April to first part of November for the Summer Season and Mid December to Mid March for the Winter season. When the Park is open in the Summer, the gates are always open to traffic, however there may not be a Ranger at the gate in early or late hours. In the Winter season, the west gate of Yellowstone Park has very limited entry for motorized access. All information for the opening/closing dates and access are listed at the NPS website.
A question we get a lot and wish we could accurately answer. Cabins West Lodging is located at 6600 feet in mountain elevation, the weather is very unpredictable and can change from very comfortable warm temperatures one minute to snowing in July. Our typical Summer temperatures are 70 – 80 degrees for the highs to 40 – 50 degrees for the lows. Our Off-Season/Winter months can vary from -40 – +40 degrees. We always recommend packing a variety of clothing to meet any weather changes that may occur.
There is numerous activities that are available to kids and families when not touring Yellowstone. Our city park is 2 blocks away, Grizzly & Wolf Discovery Center has a great “Keeper Kids” daily program, there are two movie theaters in town including the IMAX theater, weekend rodeos, zip line adventures and much more. For a list of kids activities and programs in West Yellowstone during the Summer and Winter seasons please visit our Chamber website.
