Headwater's Lodge & Cabins at Flagg Ranch

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Nice cabins right in between parks. Was expecting cooler temps in cabins but was comfortable in 30 degree nights.

No cell phone service. No wifi. No tv. No radio. No AC. No frig or microwave. Only queen bed. Would not recommend for $220 night. Go somewhere else

We stayed at this location so we had easy access to both Yellowstone and Grand Tetons. Each day we set out in a new direction and the drives were reasonable and we were able to cover everything we wanted to see over the week we stayed there. The cabin room we had was fairly basic but comfortable. We enjoyed having no TV and being out of cell phone range and having no internet. At the major stops we were able to connect back to email and get messages. The area where we stayed was quiet and at night it is really dark--again, perfect for vacation. The restaurant was good though we were too lazy to always arrive during open hours. Services available included gas and a small store along with a gift shop.

we enjoyed the rustic feel of the cabin---very good condition of facilities

Couldn't have asked for more. Good location smack dab between Yellowstone and Tetons. Good restaurant and friendly staff as well. Our std cabin stopped up once and they were out in 2 mins to fix it as well. There is no internet or wifi here but you get it at major stops throughout park. Was concerned about mosquitos and brought tons of bug spray but very few(tons more in my backyard in NJ!)

Flagg Ranch is 3.5 miles from Yellowstone to the north and as close to the Tetons in the south. Cabins are spacious. There is no tv, no Internet so you can enjoy the parks!

We had a deluxe cabin. The office was hard to find. We new it had No air conditioning but the hotel said it was rarely needed. We slept with our portable fans next to our head in the bed anf still was hot. No TV which was not listed in the description. The mosquitos were dreadful outside and they followed us inside. We sprayed bug spray on us before we went to bed. No wi-fi or cell service which was in the description

Our family of 8 stayed in 2 cabins for 3 nights. We were disappointed because we weren't even close to each other. After the second night they were moved to a cabin next to us because the sewer backed up in their section. I was glad they were able to move, but that was a lot of work moving everything for one night. Also, the mosquitos were so bad that we couldn't be out in the morning or evening without getting eaten up. I don't know why they couldn't spray with all the threat of the disease that they spread. We were forced to eat in their restaurant because there isn't anything else around and the food was very expensive and not very good quality.

This is truly a cabin in the woods, rooms are not in a hotel or lodge (large building) it's in a cabin. Large bedroom and sitting area. Fridge, coffee maker, and microwave. Great, except, if you think this means your connected, nope, you are off the grid, no cell service( Sprint), no in room WiFi (there is WiFi in the lodge), and no TV. There are games in the lodge you can take back to your cabin. Another note - ugh and this killed it for me, attack of the mosquitos, we could not get in or out of our car without being attacked at dusk, and then they'd get in the car. We were literally running, to and from car to avoid being bitten.

We were thrilled to find a room between the two parks. It was such time ever and added to our relaxation and the beauty of our visit. It was a pleasant surprise to be in a cabin. Thanks

Visited Grand Tetons from here. Very convenient. Has, gas, groceries, wildlife down the road. Very friendly staff and decent restaurant on site. Mosquitoes are an issue as others have mentioned. Clean room, bigger than a hotel room. Lack of wifi is a bummer so check weather and directions prior to coming.

Lovely cabin, great amenities, terrific staff, very quiet in a woodsy atmosphere. Nice lodge

This was the perfect place for myself, husband, and two young granddaughters to spend time.. Very close to the south entrance to Yellowstone National Park, which was our main destination. Beautiful scenery. Such a quiet, peaceful place on the Snake River. Great for hiking and wading. The staff was very friendly and helpful.

Staff was great to work with, dinning was a little soendy but was in line with all the lodge prices. Rooms were very nice

We were greeted by very friendly and professional front desk staff and directed to our cabin. The place has lots of charm and we were pleased with our surroundings. There was a nice little restaurant, bar, and gift shop along with a gas station and little general store. We wished we could have stayed longer to take in the Snake River and nearby hiking trails.

Our stay at Flagg Ranch was everything we had hoped for. if your stay is a few days or more, than I highly recommend upgrading to the Premium Cabins where you have a Fridge, Microwave & Coffee Maker. The cabin was very comfortable, quiet and so dark at night that I slept better than at home! The cleaning staff was very thoughtful and cheery - even arrived each day with a cute towel-animal on our bed (like the expensive cruise lines). Tip of the day: Call ahead a few days and ask for a cabin on the back row! they have private little trails that lead down to a cool river to play in. The water is chilly, but so clean and clear that it makes you want to wade in on summer days. Flagg Ranch is perfectly located between Yosemite and Grand Tetons National Park. Much less traffic in the Tetons which kind of made it our favorite. Area of Improvement needed: Definitely some of the food at the restaurant - We read the mixed reviews before our trip and have to agree with them. On a positive note - You can't go wrong with the Brinner Burger and the Bartenders are awesome! Cheers!!

the cabin was very nice and clear, needs fans in the ceiling. Service was great, food at restaurant was great. stuff very friendly.

Everything was great except the lack of wifi and phone service. There is some weak wifi signal at The lobby. But that pertains to almost whole Yellowstone park not just this particular hotel.

Great hotel. Feels like you are camping in the woods, but in a cabin (where we had our room). There are campsites there as well. Food at the lodge was great. On the pricy end if you were a family group on a budget, but everything around is that price due to the location.

Located between Yellowstone National Park and Grand Teton Natinal park. Cannot use cell phone and internet.

2 mi south of S. Entrance of Yellowstone Moran WY

We are very sorry you were unaware of the lack of connectivity on our property. It is a National Park tradition not to have TVs in the room. We are currently working with the National Park Service to get wifi in our location. We hope you enjoyed something while staying with us!

Thank you for your review! Normally there are only a few days out of the summer where air conditioning is needed. We apologize you were uncomfortable in the cabin due to it being hot. It is a National Park tradition not to have TVs in guest rooms. The mosquitoes do get quite bad mid-June until the end of July, but after that we deal with a normal mosquito population. Hopefully, you were able to enjoy the parks while staying with us!
