To drive Bear Tooth Pass and have this waiting for you at the end... just a stone's throw from the Yellowstone Park gate and Lamar Valley was just what you could wish for. There were small metal goats and a “goat crossing” sign all over the front grounds – cute. Check in was at the General Store in front. Masks required and if someone came in without they were given one and asked to put it on. We had Silver Gate log cabin #3. Drove around to it in back of the Store – cute cabin between similar others with a space to back the car into between. Beds on either side of the door (later found they very comfortable)…a small wooden table with wooden chairs and a small kitchen with frig, stove, sink and utensils, etc..and a bathroom. A window looked out at the back woods from the kitchen sink area. Everything was wonderfully clean given COVID. ..Chairs on the front porch where you could sit and enjoy the mountain range view. Out walking near sunset. Noted some guests were making fires in fire pits and you could purchase firewood at the Store. Nice non-chain local restaurant across the street for those not interested in cooking but if you want to cook suggest you buy your food back in Red Lodge. Walked to a stream for pics. Stopped at Store (they have a limited food supply there as well)... and picked out a couple of refrigerator magnets. Nice assortment of things for gifts as well as bear spray and other essential.People sitting by a fire out in front of the Store in the fading light. What a gem of a place. Expensive? yes - but given where you are - its worth the cost.

Due to COVID, we received an auto-cancellation email from Xantera for a cabin in Yellowstone, but it was a real blessing to find a Whispering Pine Cabin at Silver Gate Lodging. It was a 2-day hole to fill in early September, but it was super close to the Lamar Valley. Best move ever to go to Silver Gate, the cabin was totally amazing. We loved that a spotting scope was available and we were able to be there fast at sunrise and sunset to see wolves, bear, pronghorn, bison, and all sorts of animals. The cabin was super clean, cozy, great kitchenette, fridge, and located very close to some amazing food close and also to Cooke City Cafe that opened at 5:30A. The evening sky was spectacular, pitch black, stargaze the Milky Way, have a camp fire, and I totally loved the ambiance including the booking process and staff. I honestly wish I had 1 more night to spend as it truly was that spectacular. So cozy, so amazing, we're going back !!!

I had the pleasure of stopping over in Silver Gate on a solo roadtrip thru the Mountain West this past August 2020. Everything about the stay over was top notch. I wanted a place that was 'unplugged' in the mountains with good accommodations and got just that. Only internet is around the general store which was perfect. The owners and staff were extremely friendly. The general store covered everything you needed. I had heard the beds were new and comfy but that didn't even do it justice - best bed I had on my 12 night journey! The communal campfire around the store was a great touch and met some nice people there. was wonderful to wake up refreshed and be just minutes away from Yellowstone entrance to start the day.

We had originally planned to stay in Gardiner after a day of touring the park. There was no competition once we looked at this one. And even though it was another 90 min of driving it was so worth it. It was around 6 pm and we had multiple close up bison encounters, beautiful scenery, AND we saw wolves!! We were so happy when we walked into this darling, perfectly equipped, beautifully decorated cabin, with comfy bedding and a beautiful mountain view. And the town is adorbs! Super close to get to Lamar Valley in the morning, but we wished we didn't have to go. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!

Really Special Spot

My family enjoyed one night In a Pines Edge Cabin during our Yellowstone vacation. The cabin was really cute with a full kitchen and bunk bed that the kids loved. This is by no means fancy but everything was very clean and the cabin was stocked with everything you could possibly need. We really enjoyed the fire pit, already prepped with wood and optional s’mores available in the general store ( well stocked with all sorts of beverages, snacks, etc.). The employees working here were all wonderful and helpful, providing directions and recommendations with a smile. This was our favorite Yellowstone area lodge!
