At Yellowstone Basin Inn, our number one priority is to provide our guests with unforgettable experiences in Yellowstone National Park, Montana, and the Rocky Mountain West. With an in-depth knowledge of Yellowstone, including its spectacular landmarks and lesser-known back road treasures, we love helping guests plan their adventures. We are also happy to provide up-to-date information about special events, road and weather reports, transportation details, and the area’s unlimited activities.
In the evenings, guests can relax on the scenic front porch with fellow travelers and compare the experiences of the day and the plans for the next. We want all of our guests to feel as if they are visiting family and friends, and we pride ourselves on offering personalized attention.
In his more than 20 years of experience working in the hospitality industry, Greg Strauss has learned what truly makes a vacation special: it’s all about relaxing. With that in mind, Greg heads up the Yellowstone Basin Inn’s Guest Services to help you plan every aspect of your Yellowstone vacation. He wants to make sure that guests don’t spend time worrying or planning too much ahead of time. Instead, they can relax and leave the details to him.
Sabina & Greg love food, plain and simple. They take great care of the quality and origins of food, and with the help of Debra (the breakfast cook), they pride themselves on serving the best they can.
