The Silver Gate Lodging, open from early May to early October, is located just one mile from the northeast entrance of Yellowstone National Park. It is an absolute delight for those who desire a true cabin feel in remote mountainous terrain with bountiful wildlife. Silver Gate Lodging features 29 charming and cozy cabins of various sizes and bed configurations ranging from the more modern and spacious Silver Gate Cabins to the more rustic Pine Edge Cabins to the smaller and even more rustic Whispering Pines Cabins. Along with four other distinct cabins: the Annex, The Back Cabin, the Loft, and the School House, there are two larger houses available: The House at Pine Edge and the Amphitheater House. All 29 cabins have an authentic and homey feel. The comfortable beds and snug down comforters are consistently praised by guests as a memorable amenity. All cabins except two Whispering Pines cabins have kitchens along with dishware, utensils, and cookware to fulfill all the cooking needs of guests. For those wanting to cook in the outdoors, there are charcoal grills outside of every cabin along with porches or firepits to have fun with family and friends in the brisk mountain air. Since Silver Gate Lodging is so isolated, there is no cell phone service whatsoever in the area, no internet service on site, and no televisions in the cabins. Guests, beyond doubt, like it this way.
