We really enjoyed our ride last night. Jessie and Carly were great! The ride was fun and the dinner was excellent. We were very impressed with everything – from finding you on the web to making the reservations to the ride itself. You have an excellent business and we will recommend you to anyone heading this way. Thanks for a fun experience!

K. Cavaliere

I wanted to email you and let you know that we had a wonderful time at your lodge. Your staff was great and the accommodations were wonderful. Thanks again and I will recommend you anytime!

K. Stultz

I just wanted to say thank you for the great three days the boys and I had. The place is awesome and everyone is so kind. And the food was amazing. Nate and Austin had a blast on the horse ride. Just wanted to say thank you and if we ever get back that way we will be staying there again.

We had a GREAT time at your resort….even better than my memories as a kid 40+ years ago! Hope we can get back sometime.

We had a really great time at the lodge. Beautiful, relaxing place and the staff was very nice. Your restaurant was excellent too, great kids menu. The mountain burger could compete for awards.

G. Morisani

I was just looking through pictures and remembering our stay with you on June 5 and 6. What a beautiful place you have! It was so much fun to be there. We enjoyed the campfire and chatting with your staff, the delicious dinner and breakfast and especially the breakfast horseback ride!! That morning was a highlight of our whole trip for us. Thank you for your hospitality and for making us feel so comfortable. If we ever have the opportunity to come back to that area of Wyoming, we definitely would love to stay there again.

The High Family

We had an opportunity to take the breakfast ride on June 17th. It was one of the best things we have ever done. Your staff was absolutely the best. It was so fun to see such great people that truly enjoy their jobs. Laney and Lacy truly made the ride the best vacation event ever.

C. and G. Woodard

We stayed at a nearby resort and called for the horseback lunch ride, as their horses were not available yet and recommended your outfit. Thought we were going to get the evening ride due to timing of call. You came through and were able to get us on our own lunch ride on 6/12! The ride and scenery were fabulous to say the least. Our guide was very professional and her knowledge of the area was very helpful! The cookout at the top was really neat! Got to build our own fire ring gathering rocks and sticks for the fire. We will definitely come back fro another ride if we get back to the Cody, WY area!

Many Thanks!
Jim and Theresa, Tim and Sharon

Boy, did we have a good time! Kerry and Theresa, you can be proud of the facility you have. Your help was wonderful. T.J. and Jessie were wonderful as our guides on our ride. They were not only knowledgeable, but very friendly and polite. Tamie was very comfortable with them. They made her first horseback ride very memorable. Thanks for letting my girls mess with your horses a bit. Tey loved it. The rest of the staff that we had contact with was also awesome. (I am sorry I can’t remeber their names) The young gal saved Drew’s life with that inhaler:-)

On a personal note…I have been trying to get my girls to the mountains for about ten years. I am SO glad that I decided to base out of your lodge. The entire trip is one that we will not soon forget.

M. Baker

It’s been a few weeks since we were there and all I can think of is the great time we had and how nice you all are. I hope that things are going good out there we miss everyone and are trying to find a way to come back as soon as we can.

Joel

Hi Kerry & teresa, we recenctly spent 3 days with you in June with my sister and husband. She was the one who had never ridden before and she was 65! and terrified! But after the ride on Sam i think she loves it now. I had to drop you a line to say what a fantastic place you have there i think it was the highlight of our trip to the USA. You were all so friendly and welcoming,kerry – you are a gooooood cook!! Would you say hello to everybody, Austin, TJ, Alison,Chrissy and everybody and thank them for making it so special. We tell all our friends over here about you all and i don’t think we’ll ever forget our time spent with you at the lodge. One day we might get back their.

D. Heyworth

Just wanted to let you know that we had a wonderful time during our recent visit to the lodge. The setting is simply breathtaking–so much so, that one day, rather than drive in to Yellowstone, we decided to just stay near our cabin and soak up the peaceful beauty. It was hard to leave, but I hope I get a chance to return some day.

D. Mercer

Me, Maddie, and Dillon were there Tuesday, July 19th 2011 for a 2 hour ride. It was magnificent. Thank you very much. Recommend you start a Facebook page, create a link so we can all follow you, comment.

R. Wente

Just wanted to send you an email and let you know how happy we were with our horse riding trip. IT WAS OUTSTANDING! I did anticipate enjoying the ride but it far exceeded my expectations. Everything was wonderful, from the staff who greeted us, the gentle horses (my bos wanted to take Half-Pint and Shadow home!) to the beautiful scenery of the mountain trail. None of us wanted it to end. Allison, our guide, was so genuine and great with my two boys who hadn’t riden before. Thank you so much for giving us our favorite adventure of our trip out west!

C. Huckins

We stayed at the lodge in july and it was the very best vacation we have ever had.the staff was so friendly we felt at home.we took the
breakfast horse trip and the food was 5 star. we will be back in the near future.great job from wrangler to house keeping.i’ll recomend it to all my friends who go out west.

E. Medley

I was there in cabin 2 with the Hughes. All of your staff was so pleasant and helpful. The cabin and grounds are very beautiful and
peaceful. I could have stayed there the rest of my life. We all had a wonderful time and will spread the word. If we every stay again in that area, we will stay there. We also will recommend you highly.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH. P. Miller

We had a wonderful time at your lodge. The cabin was beautiful, clean, relaxing and comfortably fit our family of six. The surroundings were amazing and the horseback ride breakfast was delicious and memorable. Thank you all for a wonderful visit to Wyoming and we hope to be back in near future.

To: Theresa and Kerry

Because I was a Policemen for 30 years and now work for the Medical Examiners Office for the westside of the State of Michigan. I travel as far north as Cadillac, Michigan and all the counties to Lake Michigan. My wife has been an RN Nurse for 25 years. We have seen things. We have seen the worst of the worst. So, when we decided to take the train out west to Montana and Wyoming for vacation, we needed a rest from phones, noise, people, violence and televisions.

We had seen hell and we needed a little heaven. Well, we found a place that must have heaven nearby, because we were shocked by the beauty of your ranch, the scenary and the quiet. The wild- life in the area was amazing. We needed to find a place with few people and a place to read a good book. We found the place. The food could pass for a 5 star restaurant and you never left hungry. We thank you both, your family (Austin included) for everything you did for us, because you made a dream come true. We talked on the way home how hard you all worked and the gift you give people. I know this is a business for you and your family, but this is also a gift to people. No, this is not Disney or the Hilton, this is heaven. Kate and Krista enjoyed the horse back ride and found it breath taking.
All we needed to do is smell the air, listen to quiet and observe the beauty (Kerry’s cooking included). If there is anything you need from Michigan or anything we can do for you let us know.

Thank you so very much. We are planning on coming back next year at the same time, in the same cabin.
John, Krista and Kate.

I stayed with you during a recent two week fishing trip that emcompassed Montana, Wyoming and Idaho. Of the places I visited I enjoyed my stay at your lodge· and restaurant the most. Good accomodations, good food, great staff. When I travel that way again 1 definitely will include a visit with you. The only thing I didn’t get was an Absaroka mug for a momento – you sold out of them.

J. Fazenbaker

Just a note to Kerry and staff: Joyce and I just had a wonderful time at your place (fri June 18); it was so relaxing not having to “motel it”. I would highly recommend it to anyone I have contact with. Thanks Again, and hoping you all have a wonderful and safe summer.

J. Wyman

Kerry & Theresa,
Thank you for making our stay in Yellowstone unforgettable. Your staff & wranglers were outstanding!! the kids are still talking about their rides on Abbey & Sally. I know they will be talking about them for along time. Once again thank you for the great week and the lifetime of memories. I will definitely be telling friends and family about your establishment. THANKS!!!

J. Blegen

Thanks for the recent beautiful escape at your cabins located in a gorgeous setting. The kids and wife loved the horseback ride. I loved the fishing and hiking (and thanks again for grilling the trout for us)
The Scharf family

Hello Theresa,
I hope all is well!! I wanted to write and say thank you for the wonderful week at your lodge, it has been the best experience and vacation we have had as a family. The girls had a wonderful time and are still talking about their Yellowstone vacation. We look forward to seeing you next year, best wishes to your daughter on her wedding

Dear Kerry and Theresa,
Enclosed are pictures we took during our 5-night stay with you all in June. I thought the ranch hands and wranglers would enjoy some of them.

We spent a lot of money on our 13 day trip to Jackson Hole, Yellowstone and Mt. Rushmore…and though we thought Absaroka Mountain Lodge was going to be “just a place to stay” for 5 nights, your lodge ended up being the highlight and most memorable experience of our vacation. Our kids. Scott –13 yrs old and Austin –10yrs old, remember the unbelievable horseback rides we took with you, and the food, an Ms. Kitty (the cat) and Cedar (the dog).

They don’t tell their friends about Old Faithful, but they mention their horses they rode by name at Absaroka.

They don’t tell their friends about Mammoth Springs, but they tell them about helping Austin and Jeanna build a campfire to cook burgers (they got a double cheeseburger), and how we rode horses for hours at Absaroka Mountain Lodge through trees, valleys, mountains, creeks and rivers.

They don’t mention to their friends the beauty of Yellowstone, but how we crossed creeks at Absaroka on their horse and how Cedar would jump in 1st and float a few seconds before dog paddling to the other side.

And Scott mentions the fried potatoes for breakfast, and how they were so delicious. Steve and I enjoyed the Creek Coffee we had on our breakfast ride, as well. The vistas we saw during our lunch ride will always be engraved in our minds.

We were thoroughly impressed with your ranch, your crew and your family. The evening camp fires, the singing and guitar playing from your wranglers, throwing horseshoes, and roping with the wranglers were all great memories for my 2 boys who didn’t seem to miss their Xbox or TV at all.

The cabins were clean, quaint, and big enough for our family of 4. The food was delicious and you had a wonderful menu. I think during our 5 day stay, we ate at the lodge every night, except for the one night we were stuck in Yellowstone with the 10 inch snowstorm (in June?) and we could not get out of the park.

We thank you for the “best vacation we ever had”. We WILL be back.
Sincerely,
Cathy and Steve
Southlake, TX

We just want to thank you for providing our family with such a great place to stay while visiting Yellowstone. It is the perfect family vacation. Our girls enjoyed everything about your place it was fun to watch them interact with your staff and the horses. Krista and Gina made our horseback riding a time we will never forget. Melanie was great playing soccer and volleyball with the kids in the evening. Katrina provided us with incredible service every evening at dinner and we very much enjoyed her singing and guitar playing at campfire. Steve was also very helpful and he too provided great music in the evenings. It was so interesting to talk to Austin about horses; he has such an incredible passion! And of course, Shannon was as helpful as could be with any request. You are very blessed to have such a beautiful place in paradise. It is very apparent how much hard work and pride you put into owning such a place!
Thank you.

We just returned to Chicago from the Lodge, and we had to look over the web site to keep the memories fresh. We miss the mountains we could see just outside or door, the sound of Gun Barrel Creek to put us to sleep, and cheerfulness of everyone from you owners, to the wranglers, and even the wait staff. With the greatest enthusiasm I would recommend anyone spend time at the Absaroka Mtn Lodge. My only complaint is that you don’t have enough pictures on your web site. Thank goodness I took plenty of my own. These memories will last forever. Thank you for a truly great time.
B. Voves

Dear Kerry, Theresa, Shannon, and crew,

I hope you had a good 4th of July weekend. Wish we’d still been there with you. My family and I would like to thank you all for a wonderful vacation last week. You sure made us feel like family. Each of you added a special part to our stay – we remember and thank:
Katrina for her sweet singing – it really added to the campfire experience!
Melanie for playing sports with our boys – you’re a super athlete!

Steve for making the campfire interesting – I was ready to try your pine needle tea if you’d been in charge there another night!

Gina and Christa for a great breakfast ride, and Cole and Austin for a wonderful dinner ride y’all are great hosts and cooks! We thoroughly enjoyed both rides the scenery was superb and the company fun.

And thanks to Cole and Austin again, for sharing their music as well as their rodeo knowledge. Guys, we had a great time at the rodeo last Sunday – the boys got such a kick out of it – and we are sorry we didn’t get to see you two perform. It would have been even better to be able to root for someone we knew. Cole, Alex is exploring the CD’s you shared with him, too. Many thanks! You have generously added to his music education. He had fun discussing music with you.

Kerry, Theresa and Shannon for everything! You run a wonderful place with wonderful people – thank you!

We will be most happy to recommend you all to our friends and family, and sometime we’d love to visit you all again. Thank you for making us part of your family for a while! We wish you all a great summer with many more to come.

Sincerely,
Katherine, Jacques, Alex, and Robert C.

Kerry & Theresa,
Just can’t say it enough!
We just wanted to let you know what a wonderful time we had during our stay. Your friendliness and hospitality will never be forgotten! Thanks to you both, your sweet daughter and all the staff for the great memories.
R & C Jenkins

Theresa, Kerry, & Absaroka Staff
Thanks for a wonderful week in beautiful WY! Our stay at Absaroka really gave us a vacation to just relax & enjoy seeing beautiful country out west. The hospitality shown was outstanding! We really enjoyed the Wed night cookout… those boys sure know how to cook! Thanks again or everything… we have memories that will last a lifetime. I know how people fall in love with this area & state… cause we sure did. It is always nice to be home, but it sure was hard to leave!!! Again, tell all of your staff Thank You! Adrian sure did enjoy conversations with Austin – he is great! Hope to be out your way again soon!
Your Friends in NC,
Samantha & Adrian

To the Boyd’s
Would like to thank you and your staff or a vacation to remember for a lifetime. My daughter, Rhebeka, and I had a wonderful stay at your lodge, the service and atmosphere was nothing short of world class. Your staff and your family made myself and my daughter feel like we were part of your family during our stay, The morning ride that Rhebeka took was the highlight of her trip currently she has the picture of her and Ike as the background for her sign in screen on her computer. I have heard her tell her friends many times of the experience of the ride. I think she will remember this event for a lifetime she is currently working on a paper for school with the trip to Wyoming as the thesis. I wish you and yours the best thanks for a great trip.

Dear Mr. And Mrs. Boyd

Greetings for the plains of west –central Illinois, where today the temperature is approaching 95 degrees!

On June 19, 2007, while staying at Cowboy Village in Cody, Wyoming, my husband, Ron, and I were fortunate to visit your ranch for an evening steak trail ride. I’m writing to tell you how much we enjoyed the experience.

Upon first arriving, we were struck by the ranch’s natural beauty, especially the stream running through the property. We were also delighted with your wranglers at the corral, especially Mariel from Georgia and Austin from Mississippi.

These two young people are a tremendous asset to your ranch. They chose horses to suit our varying riding ability. (I have little myself, while Ron is an accomplished horseman.) Their easy manner, skills and knowledge made me feel at ease, even through I’m an inexperienced rider. As a high school teacher I also appreciated their maturity and impeccable manners. And you’re right – they’re pretty good cooks, too! Kudos to whomever prepares the food at the lodge. It was simply delicious, especially cooked over a campfire. We also want to commend Cedar, who accompanied our ride, clearing the trail of animals and who also shared my dinner. What a good girl!

Once again, we had a wonderful time and hope to return again in the future.
C. Walls,
Concord, IL

I want to express my sincerest thanks for such a wonderful stay at your cabins, My parents and our family stayed in Cabin #1 back in July. The kids haven’t stopped talking about that wonderful trip and especially the horseback riding at your ranch! We had such a great time and everyone who has looked at our photo albums has asked where we stayed! Carli had to write an essay for school about what she did over the summer and she literally wrote pages and pages about our trip to Wyoming. We truly created some wonderful family memories at your place. Thank you so much for all you did for us and for your wonderful staff. One of the highlights for the kids was playing volleyball with the wranglers! We sure hope that one day we can make it back to your area and stay with you again. It was a great trip!
Warm Regards,
L Tastad
Millstadt, IL

Thanks so much for making our vacation a true memory for our kids. The trail rides were beautiful and the food was yummy! Many thanks to your staff or going out of their way to make our young kids feel comfortable and welcome.
A. Carman

Dear Theresa:
It was such a pleasure meeting you and your family and staying at the Lodge. The place is so beautiful and peaceful surrounded by mountains, plus everyone was so helpful, which made our stay even more enjoyable. Adrian is still talking about it, and how much he enjoyed going horseback riding with Laura. I think he will never forget this trip.
M. Rodriguez

Boyds & Gang:
Thanks for a wonderful three nights! The kids had a blast with the horses and the stream running through the area. We will treasure our memories from Absoraka Lodge!
Bless you,
The Johnsons

Dear Boyd Family –
We have enjoyed our relaxing stay at your ranch. Loved the sound of Gunbarrel Creek right outside our windows, always loved the fresh mountain air flowing through our cabin. The meals were great. You have a beautiful location. We have certainly found refreshment and renewal.
B & S Lake, Pennsylvania

PS: Horseback ride was excellent!

Kerry and Theresa,
We have returned home from our 11 day tour of the Yellowstone and Grand Teton area and just wanted to drop a line to Thank You for your hospitality. Of all the wonderful things we did in the area, the kids tell everyone the 3 days at your Ranch were the best. It takes a lot to please my three kids and you guys went well beyond it. Everything from the cabin, meals, horse riding, nightly camp fires and just enjoying the scenic beauty of your ranch was first class. I wish I was there with you guys now. Heck, the kids did not want to leave and finish the rest of the tour that final morning at your ranch.
As an individual whom supervises well over 1200 associates, I know first hand how important hiring the best staff can be to your businesses success. I can say without hesitation ALL of your staff was phenomenal. Chef John’s meals were fantastic and boy does he fill a plate! I must say the barbecue cookout was great as well. All the benefits of barbecuing without the hassles. The wranglers were knowledgeable, friendly and respectful young men and women. We went on the lunch ride with Jeremy and found him to be a fine and fascinating young man. He took the time to talk with my three children, to answer our entire myriad of questions, to teach dad and son how to throw a hatchet and cooked a fine meal. I would strongly recommend the Blackwater Creek trail ride to any family as the views are fantastic and you get a “real” Trail ride. They need to be a little adventurous as the ride down is a little challenging. We also had the pleasure of taking a steak dinner ride with Cole and Kelly. The kids loved crossing the rivers and the meal was the best we had the entire trip. Yes, even better than the meal at the Old Faithful Inn – imagine that. Cole is a real role model as he took the time to encourage my son to pursue his talents and focus on school. The kids really enjoyed his guitar picking around the campfire. Kelly is a beautiful and patient young lady who made my eight year old daughter feel very comfortable during the trip. And of course, my 11 year old daughter whom trains on a horse weekly had the time of her life. Give her a horse and hours to ride and she is in heaven!!!
I must say we also found Cody to be a great day trip from your ranch. We loved the rodeo, western shopping and historical Wild Bill town. And if anyone ever asks for advice for a day trip, I would strongly recommend the Chief Joseph HWY and Beartooth HWY loop. Charles Kurault got it right, theBeartooth HWY is “America’s Most Beautiful HWY”. When you get to the top of the 10,970 rugged mountains and see the natural lakes, streams, canyons and glaciers and play in the snow in July in your shorts, you must be glimpsing a little piece of heaven.
The hardest part of planning our trip was trying to pick the right Ranch and to fit it into our schedule. I know without a doubt I got that part right. Your location was great as we found the area closer to Cody to be very dry and lacking the scenic beauty of the area your ranch is in. We loved how your ranch sits amongst the trees with the creek rushing by and the views of the surrounding mountain – oh how peaceful. Can you ship your ranch to TN for me when you close shop this winter?
In closing, thanks for making our vacation one our family will always cherish. You have a great place and family. I pray God will bless your family and we can spend some time with you again in the future.
The Fleming Family – Steve, Tammy, Nick, Sydney and Madeline

The entire Kilburn family enjoyed our stay at Absaroka in early August. The cabins were excellent, the playground welcome for the kids, the campfires fun, and the cookout tasty. We have stayed all over the world, and even at another lodge near your lodge once, but have never found a staff as friendly and helpful. The wranglers made the breakfast ride great fun.
Thanks for your efforts to make Absaroka Mountain Lodge so friendly.
R. Kilburn, Kentucky and Tennessee

We would like to thank you for the wonderful stay we had at your lodge. Taking our two boys for a trail ride that they still are talking about. Special thanks to Kelly for leading the trail ride and Cedar for going part way. The wonderful views of the mountains, Gunbarrel Creek, and wildlife. Your lodges and wonderful meals in the dining room and at the campfire. Kerry’s magic trick! We cannot express enough about the great vacation we had at Absaroka and the caring, professional and friendly staff you have there. You all seem like family. We will be back guaranteed and will recommend Absaroka to all.
D. Andrews, Beresford, SD

Thank you for all the hard work you and your staff put into accommodating the 33 members of our family for our reunion. Everyone was very pleased with activities, accommodations, location and food. Across 3 generations and family from the 4 corners of the country, everyone was excited about the 4 days we spent at your lodge.
You were gracious in accommodating our special requests to make this time a very memorable one for all.
Thank you again
M. Faley

We just wanted to send a thank you for a wonderful stay at your guest ranch. The scenery is breathtaking, the staffs super, meals were excellent, and the cabins quaint (a welcome change form daily distractions…our kids had to talk to us with no cell service, computers, or TV!) We have a week full of great memories. We will be sure to recommend you to friends and family. Thank you again.
Sincerely
The Williamson’s

Just a note of thanks to you for making our short stay there so special! It was everything we hoped it would be and more. We loved sitting on the benches by the creek, just listening to the gentle sounds of the water rolling over the rocks. A special highlight for our family was the breakfast ride. You made us “novices” feel like pros on the horses and the breakfast Kerry whipped up on the trail was probably the best meal we had on our entire week’s vacation! We also enjoyed sitting by the campfire at night eating roasted marshmallows and meeting people form all corners of the country. Our boys loved playing sand volleyball with all of their “neighbors” from the other cabins as well. It was a trip we won’t soon forget.
God bless you and thanks SO much! We know with a great staff like we got to know that you will be successful in this venture for many years to come!
The Nesbitts, Sioux Falls, SD

I just wanted to take time to thank you for the wonderful hospitality we enjoyed at Absaroka Mountain Lodge. From the first time I spoke to Theresa I was confident that we had made the right choice in Wyoming for lodging and horseback riding. It turns out I was correct. The cabin was just what we enjoy-homey, clean, the sound of the nearby stream and no TV! Kelly and Cole were wonderful guides on the trail – friendly and knowledgeable. And what great horses! We set our standards high on breakfast food your biscuits and gravy passes the test with flying colors. I guess what I am trying to say is that you have a wonderful family and a great business. You are truly blessed. Keep up the good work.
Miodzik Family

To everyone at Absaroka Lodge,
Well, here we are back in slightly more humid heat in England but so very much wishing we were still there in paradise.
You all made our stay so very special and a honeymoon to remember. You did such a good job we didn’t want to leave!!!
You all worked so hard to keep everything as perfect as possible and we couldn’t have asked for more (even though we were pretty demanding) and so for everything you did for us and your helpfulness (which was second to none) we thank you so very much.
Lots of love,
The Jones’s
p.s. give Stevie and Rose big hugs and kisses from us and tell them we miss them.

Thank you very much for giving us one of the most wonderful holidays we have ever had. Wyoming is truly beautiful and will last in our memories for a long time. You and all your wonderful staff made us feel so at home and we wish you and all of them very best wishes for the future. Hope to see you again sometime.
With Love, Barry and Helen Chidlow

Dear Kerry and Theresa,
Thank you for your wonderful hospitality! We spent a great week with you in June and want to share some pictures that we took, with you and your staff. We will recommend Absaroka Mountain Lodge to all of our friends and family who might be considering a vacation to Yellowstone. Thanks again for helping make our summer vacation such an enjoyable and memorable one.
Sincerely, Warren and Sandy

Dear Kerry, Theresa, Christine and Shannon
Thank you for the wonderful experience you provided for us this past July. The Absaroka Mtn. Lodge was our favorite stay during our entire trip out west. All the employees were friendly and helpful and most welcoming. Thank you for the memorable and worthwhile experience. Your breakfast horseback ride was the best!
Sincerely, Jim, Laura, and Devon Pierret

Hope you and the staff will have a wonderful Christmas. We still talk about our wonderful vacation last May. The boys consider it the best trip we have ever had at your lodge and staff was the high point. Hope to come back again and have told plenty of others. Hope Jake is still enjoying the rodeo.
Randy, Carlyn, Ryan, and Mason Williams

I wanted to thank you all for a great stay at the Absaroka Mountain Lodge June 1-5. We enjoyed the cabin, the surroundings, the food, and of course the horseback riding. Our girls have not quit talking about the ride. I think it was their favorite two hours of the whole trip! Please thank Adam for us, he was wonderful. Especially with Leah, the youngest, who was apprehensive after she found herself actually sitting on the horse. We appreciate Adam’s patience with all of us inexperienced riders.

The mid-afternoon milkshakes (created when the kitchen wasn’t actually even open-thanks to all who make that possible) are still talked about, too. Best milkshakes we’ve ever had.

As you can see, we thank you ALL for a great visit, and for everything the staff did to help make our trip the best vacation this family has ever had. We plan to visit again, and I have already recommended you to friends who are planning a trip later this summer. THANK YOU!
Brett, Dorothy, Jessie, and Leah
The Callaway Family

Just a quick note to say THANK YOU for the wonderful night we spent on Thursday 6/23 at your lodge. After traveling all day we were tired and hungry. Your chef prepared an excellent, fresh home cooked meal. Our waitress (with braids, from AL I believe) was friendly, and very accommodating. We were traveling with our daughter, husband, and 10 month old baby. The entire staff was extremely helpful and so friendly. When we opened our cabin door we were delighted with the furnishings and how cozy it was. EVERYTHING was very clean and orderly. You are to be commended for the fine establishment you have. Especially your hard working staff. We will definitely recommend you to anyone who asks.
Thanks again, Gene and Carole Krieger

Thank you for having us and showing us a great time. The kids really enjoyed the rides and just being in the great outdoors was fun for them, especially splashing in the stream. We did make it up through Yellowstone and had a great day viewing the wildlife in the Lamar and Hayden Valleys. Grizzlies, Black Bear, a moose, many elk, bison, and deer-just a wonderful day and trip. Thanks again, Kurt Orr

Boyd family,
Would like to thank you for the great time we had last week staying at the Absaroka Mountain Lodge, it was the best family vacation we’ve taken, and much of the credit is due to you and your staff.

We enjoyed ourselves so much, that we’re already talking about coming back maybe next year, or the year after. So, please keep us posted on when the renovation of cabin 17 is complete, as we would be interested in reserving that entire cabin.

We’d also like to thank you for the refund of the last days’ stay, you didn’t have to do that, and we didn’t expect it. It is really refreshing to see that you were thinking of us when the cabin was rebooked, as you don’t see that kind of hospitality very often.

When we drove home, we went through the Big Horn Mountains, and took I-90 as you recommended (passing closely by Akron, IA). It turned out that it was only 20 miles further than going through Cheyenne on I-80, and a much easier drive.

Thanks again, and we hope to see you in the years to come.
Rob, Jami, Ryan, and Bret Fuller
P.S. We have already recommended your place to our friends

Hi Theresa,
I’m back home in Lake Villa, Illinois. I arrived about 2:00 PM yesterday afternoon.
I had a great time at your lodge and want to thank you, Kerry, your girls, and all your staff for making me feel like part of the family. This was a real mountain experience that I’ll never forget. You guys are great.
I’m taking a few days and will start planning my next trip.
Thanks again, Tom

Hello Kerry and Theresa, hope all is well and you and your family (and staff). Just wanted to send a note telling you what a great time we had with you in June. All of us wish we had been able to say longer at you place. We thought the entire operation was perfect and appreciated your hospitality. I have been promoting you from here almost daily! Again, many thanks and looking forward to seeing you soon.
Walter, Lori, Madison, John, and Caleb
