Owner
"It is interesting to see, touch, and feel the homemade room furniture throughout the lodge and in the décor of the common areas. The result of this recycling effort has now become part of the history of Three Bear Lodge.”

Clyde Seely

Owner
Growing up on a small family farm in the shadows of Yellowstone National Park, Clyde Glen Seely learned the importance of hard work, strong family ties and making the best of any circumstance. His first childhood responsibility was feeding bum lambs on the farm in Twin Groves, Idaho. In 1965, after completing his Bachelor’s degree, Clyde Seely came to West Yellowstone to teach at the local high school. While teaching, he and his wife, Linda, purchased Three Bear Lodge, something Clyde could have never imagined when he first began working there as a laundry boy at age nineteen. Since then, Clyde has developed and operated multiple businesses, served in local ecclesiastical leadership, volunteered on many boards and committees, and helped revolutionize tourism in West Yellowstone. Clyde has frequented Washington D. C. as a leading advocate for the proper use and balance of snowmobiles and snowcoaches in Yellowstone National Park and has been inducted into the International Snowmobile Hall of Fame. Today, he still continues to use his “farm boy” work ethics and passion for West Yellowstone to make a difference in the lives of those around him.

Travis Watt

GM

Our General Manager for nearly a decade, Travis has a lot on his plate, including communicating daily with our team, coordinating information between our sister companies, and helping to develop new offerings for our guests. He knows West Yellowstone and Yellowstone National Park inside and out, having worked here summers to pay his way through college—and still enjoys being outdoors and having picnics in the Park.

Lisa Burdic

Front Desk Night Manager
Lisa has been a part of the Three Bear Lodge family since 2008. Now the Front Desk Night Manager, she oversees the night crew, provides training and support, and is always on hand to make reservations, welcoming guests to the lodge, and even helps prepare winter packages. Outside of work, she heads outdoors to hike or fish, and loves spending time with friends, family and her dog.

Charly Beck

Front Desk Clerk
Charly came to West Yellowstone in 1992 with a plan to stay only a couple of seasons—but is still here nearly three decades later. She joined the Three Bear Lodge team in 2020 and stays busy greeting guests, interacting with people from around the globe, and making sure that everyone who comes to stay with us has a great experience. She loves Yellowstone National Park, and loves taking people who have never seen the Park before out to explore everything it has to offer. She also loves a bit of quiet time, relaxing with a cup of tea and a good book or laughing with her siblings.

Annette Guenzel

Front Desk Clerk
Annette has been with us for five years and is one of the first folks to greet families coming to stay with us. She’s a pro at getting people checked in and out, and teams up with other members of our staff to make the great winter packages our guests have come to expect from us.
