West Yellowstone, Montana

Our "Little Big Town"  the western  gateway mountain village to Yellowstone National Park.


West Yellowstone's history closely mirrors the history of Yellowstone National Park. When the park was first formed, early guides would have lead their clients into the park by following the course of the Madison River through the area that would one day become West Yellowstone


In 1908, the first train loaded with tourists arrived on the Oregon Shortline railway extension. Over the course of several years, the track was constructed up from Ashton, Idaho through Island Park, Idaho, over Targhee Pass and into West Yellowstone, hearkening the founding of West Yellowstone. At first, visitors didn't linger; but rather made their way in and out of Yellowstone only pausing long enough to grab a meal and make the train on time. Since then, visitors have found out about the hospitality
of West Yellowstone and the great outdoor opportunities on all four sides of the "town at the end of the line".
