Dorothy & Leo were great host, they took care of even the smallest details. The place is very beautiful and the views are amazing. It was very clean and felt like home. It was easy to communicate with them from the start and even gave details about places to visit.

Possibly THE best airbnb stay we have ever had. Leo and Dorothy are extremely welcoming and the space is all we could ask for. Plenty of room for our family of six. Beautiful surroundings and extremely clean inside. More linens than we could ask for and a very generous spirit fro…

Dorothy and Leo's place is absolutely stunning nestled in the rolling hills with the majestic Emigrant Peak in the background. Although it's a 30 min drive from Gardiner / Yellowstone Park entrance, we enjoyed the mountain living experience and it made the perfect base camp for o…

Dear Mekhala, Thanks so much for your kind words! You all were delightful guests, and we're so glad you enjoyed your stay! Next time, we hope you can join us after the Monarchs arrive so your son can help us find eggs and caterpillars in the garden, or maybe help us tag and release them in the fall! The Monarchs are truly magical! Leo and I are in our 60's, yet we feel like we're 7 years old again, and you will, too! Best wishes always, Dorothy & Leo

Dear Billy and Jen, Thanks for your kind words. And a special thanks for the dinner invite. It was weird having someone prepare us dinner in "our" kitchen, but so much fun! And Rachel keeps looking for you... We wished you had more time to stay with us, also, so we could have found the bears you wanted to see. Hope the 4 moose in the snow that we all spotted made up for it. Next time, I hope you can come earlier in the season so we can look for Monarch eggs, watch the caterpillars turn into chrysalises, and/or finally emerge as butterflies. We never grow tired of it, and neither will you! Best wishes forever, Dorothy & Leo
