We had nervously booked the Dreamcatcher Tipi Hotel and wasn’t sure what to expect but we were so pleasantly surprised and impressed. We received a very friendly welcome before being shown to our Tipi and the inside was so cleverly decorated. We had a very comfy bed and enjoyed two very comfortable nights sleep. The tents were hot during the day when we were there but we sat outside and looked at the views and in the evening we sat and chatted to other guests round the campfire. Although it was a short walk to the bathrooms, they were very well designed, clean and we never had to wait. This was glamping of a good standard and certainly lots of fun!!

My wife is not a camper but wanted to try a tipi. Dreamcatcher tipis are pretty nice. great king bed, heaters, safe in room and different enough to make it fun. each evening they have a nice fire, smores and wine. the bathrooms/showers are in separate building but each is private and very nice. property sits in an amazing valley with snow capped mountains right in view. elk and pronghorn across the street. we had a good time and would come again - PS great staff

I wanted to stay in a teepee forever! The experience met and exceeded my expectations! It’s glamping at its best! The bed was very comfy and the furnishings were more than adequate. Liam was very hospitable and I enjoyed talking with him around the fires! All teepeers gathered around the big fire and mingled and made s’mores. I taught a lady from England how to make s’mores. The stars and moon were brilliant.

We stayed for 1 night in early September! First off, this had to be one of the best hotel experiences I ever had the blessing to stay at. You are a quick 15 minute drive from the North Yellowstone Park entrance which is perfect to get away from the tourist. This is snuggled away in the mountain side of Gardner, MT. We arrived and were greeted by the owner and showed around. This is just like camping by in a luxury tipi! There were Elk every where which was fun! The Tipi was beautiful, the bed sooo comfortable, warm and cozy! The bathrooms were fantasic! Clean and well decorated. The bonfire at night was awesome! Beer, Wine and S'Mores! Meet some awesome people! It rained during the night and my goodness it was so peaceful to hear the rain falling! The breakfast was fantastic! Loved the fire going in the morning as I was sipping my morning coffee watching the Elk graze in the mountainside. Do yourself a favor and experience this little piece of heaven on earth. I will and plan to come back for longer next year!

This was an amazing experience!!! We are from the east coast and we sent our son off to college at Montana State and wanted something different to do for a few nights before we returned to Bozeman. Dreamcatcher was recommended to us by a friend who had stayed there earlier this summer and we loved everything about the Tipi Hotel and the location was perfect for us! We stayed for 3 nights in August while exploring Yellowstone and it was perfect. The setting is gorgeous and the staff is wonderful! Instead of going out to dinner, we opted to pick up food and bring it back to the picnic tables to watch the sunset on 2 of the evenings because we didn't want to miss out on the view. You'll love it! We had read reviews of people complaining about the bathrooms and those reports are inaccurate! We never had to wait for a bathroom or a shower and they were maintained frequently and were impeccably clean all the time. The nightly campfires were so fun and we got to experience a Montana sky that looks like the one on the Tipi Hotel website. We hope to return to this special place in the future.

Wow this is one of the best places we have stayed. Bed was to die for. Breakfast was great Staff where great sitting around a campfire drink beers telling story about your trip. Watching the clear sky Would come back

We wanted to start our trip to Yellowstone with something different and fun. Since I am not much of a camper, i thought this was a good compromise. the website and article i read about it said luxury glamping. I have done the glamping thing several times, and this was NOT it! Teepees-They were actually quite nice inside but lacked some necessities. there was not one rack or stand to put your luggage on and there was plenty of room for it. no chest of drawers so you literally had to rummage through your suitcases on the floor to get to anything. the beds were very comfortable and the rest of the teepee was adorable. it was over 90 degrees that day and the only air inside was from a fan. it did not do the trick and we could not go into our room after a long day of traveling until after 9pm when it cooled down. paying $350 a night for a tepee, they should have portable AC units as a backup for these high temp days, or at least another fan (better brand and power). There was no Air conditioned section of the site, so we had to go to our car and wait the heat out. location...the location of the site was fine, but too close to the main road. we were lucky that we stayed in teepee 10 that had a lot of privacy and was close to a bubbling stream. otherwise, it would have felt a bit too close to the city and other tents. BEWARE....the website says they offer private bathrooms. this is NOT the case. for 16 teepees, some with over 4 people inside, they only have 6 or 7 full bathrooms to SHARE!! they have signs limiting shower times during rush hours. Furthermore, we had to walk at least 30 yards to get to the bathroom area. THis is not fun at 2 in the morning. they don't even give you robes or a bag to carry your clothes with you so when you go to shower in the morning you need to take your suitcase and stuff with you and change in there. also, since they are shared, you wait for someone to finish and then you go into a dirty used shower and bathroom. often times they were out of towels! At the very least, they should build a few more of these and give each teepee a key to their own bathroom that they can keep their stuff in and have access to at all hours. If they really want to step it up a notch, they should build bathrooms behind each teepee...even if they have to charge more. in spite of this, the place was so nice and could have been 5 stars. the staff was very friendly, the breakfast was fine (though they should have coffee ready at 6:30am instead of 7:30) and the grounds and teepees were very clean. i really wish they would do something about the bathrooms or at least be more open about it on their website.

We stayed in the Tipi for two nights at the end of July. Beautiful, clean luxury Tipi with great private bathrooms and comfortable beds. My 3 teenagers and I loved it and it was such a unique experience. Every night they had a bonfire with smores and wine. The sunsets were breathtaking. Loved it! The staff was friendly too! Very close to Yellowstone.

Let me start by saying that my husband took a lot of time planning for our big summer vacation. The goal was to give our two children an experience to remember. My husband had reserved Tipi 13, which had plenty of beds for our family of 4. When we arrived we were given Tipi 2, which had one large bed. We were told that they made a last minute change and that Tipi 13 was already occupied by a larger party. They later placed 2 roller beds inside Tipi 2, making it tight quarters. I do not think that it is too much to ask to be notified when changing accommodations that had been made far in advanced! It is called “good business practice”. Our second disappointment, the bathrooms. They advertise as “private bathrooms”, but there is nothing private about sharing! We understood that you were assigned your own “private” bathroom. Not so, as they added more tipis making it difficult to find one not in use during the morning hours. Our children did enjoy the fire pit every night and on that positive note, there is one hard working employee, Cindy, that was wonderful. The night the Cindy was not there however, the bathrooms suffered as they were not cleaned. If you do decide to stay there, make sure you know what you are getting. Also, do not plan on breakfast there as they do not restock the breakfast items. There so called “local bakery”, supplies frozen goods and old English muffins. Yes, disappointed is the word to describe our stay. Hope it is better for others.

This was such a fun place to stay! Our family of 5 was so comfortable in the tipi and delighted in the new experience. The staff were welcoming and helpful. The location is ideal for visits to Yellowstone or whitewater rafting.
