We had 4 amazing days staying at Bonnie's place. Bonnie is a wonderful host; she gave us a warm welcome, explained everthing about the house and gave us so much helpful information about what to see in Yellostone National Park.
The apartment is huge, consisting of the whole base floor of the house, including a spacious conservatory. It's very clean, safe, comfortabel, quiet and well maintaned, you'll feel at home immediatley. There is a lot of information about YNP profided.
Bonnie's house is situated perfectly. From the garden you can overlook the valley and the 45 minute drive to YNP east entrence is breath taking.
I would highly recommend this place. If I will ever go back to YNP again, I would defenitely return here.
Bonnie, thanks again for all the nice things you shared with us. Say hello to Jessie.
We had a wonderful time at Bonnie's. Not only is it an easy drive to Yellowstone and Cody (don't miss the Rodeo!) but it's also a very beautiful valley in its own right. The flat was perfect for our family of four: comfortable and a bit quirky (our son loved the arrowheads and the telescope). You could never tire of sitting outside looking at this view...
Bonnie was a relaxed, kind and engaging host, from telling us where the best fishing spots were to explaining cowboy couture and introducing us to home fried chicken and moose tracks ice cream. Five days seemed too short, and we were all sad to leave.
We had a truly wonderful stay with Bonnie. Made in part by the beautiful surrounding areas of the stay and having Bonnie as our host. She was there on arrival to help us settle in and give us advice about activities as day trips to helping us take care of our pup. The apartment is well appointed, peaceful and comfortable with all we needed and a few first morning supplies were provided as well. I wouldn't hesitate to come back and get to know the area even better. Thank you Bonnie for sharing your home and your knowledge with us.
Bonnie was a wonderful host from the time that we arrived until we departed. She provided tons of information about the parks and gave some great suggestions. You can really tell she loves the area and has a vast appreciation for it. The accommodations were as described...the view from the window was amazing. Highly recommended!
Bonnie, our host, made us feel welcome by meeting us in the driveway and giving us a tour of the apartment. She took time to help us plan our two days in Yellowstone, and provided breakfast for the first morning. She also provided bear spray, which came in handy, as we had a "too-close" encounter with a bear in the park (we didn't have to use the spray, but we were happy to have it). The apartment was cozy and clean, with beautiful views. Plan to bring food, as there is only one nice restaurant close; however, Cody is just 25 minutes away, with a variety of choices.
Bonnie gave us a very warm welcome & was very helpful with suggestions of where to visit. The accommodation was spacious & comfortable with great views across the valleys. The cooking arrangements are a bit quirky but manageable. We loved our stay here - you are within reach of Yellowstone & Cody and all they have to offer.
We loved staying at Bonnie's place. The views from the house were amazing, and she was an awesome host. We had plans to visit Yellowstone while staying here, and the day we arrived, she took time to offer recommendations on what to see and do (which we happily followed).
About the Host, Bonnie
As a fellow traveler, I appreciate lovely, reasonably priced, non-commercial places to stay where your experience is enhanced by a hospitable host to help you find your way around and/or by input from a community like airbnb. Being shy to talk with complete strangers while traveling, the personal touch of airbnb communication makes all the difference for me. I love fresh, well-prepared food, wide open spaces, unexpected adventures. As a social policy junkie, I'm intrigued and open to hearing what others think about the world we share.
