Lisa & Jeff are great hosts! The lodge is very clean and has a warmth to it! We loved it! You really feel as if you're staying in an extension of their home! Would highly recommend the Elk Horn Lodge if you're looking for a clean room and great family oriented place to stay!!!!!

After a reservation snafu we ended up here thinking we had reserved a room. However, there was no vacancy. The woman at the front desk was very helpful and took the time to call all the hotels in Cooke City and Silver Gate until we found a place with vacancy. Although we didn't spend the night here I have to... More

The words that spring to mind are good value. I booked this off the back of fellow reviewers but I was a bit cautious especially considering there were not many options in Cooke City. We both felt we had made the right choice. The rooms were large and clean with pretty much everything you needed. The décor was certainly colourful.... More

We've had several stays at the Elkhorn. We have stayed in an upstairs room a few times and enjoyed the quiet comfort and the cleanliness. We also stayed in one of the cabins with a kitchenette. This was very nice for a longer stay. We enjoyed the charm of Cooke City, the Visitors Center, and the general store. The location... More

There aren't many options in Cooke City but the Elk Horn Lodge is a pretty good choice. The room was clean and reasonably spacious. However, be warned that the beds are soft. Also, our shower didn't work and that came as a bit of a disappointment, especially since the office didn't open until 8.

Best little lodge in Cooke City. Very nice room. It was clean, updated and warm. The rooms are right off of main street so the noise level is low. I have stayed in Cooke City dozens of times throughout my life and this is the place to stay.

This is our second stay at this lodge and we wouldn't think of staying any place else when visiting Yellowstone NP. The lodge is very well maintained, the beds extremely comfortable, microwave and refrigerator and the WIFI was very good.

I have stayed at the Elk Horn twice - once in 2011 and once in 2014. Both were in late May/early June. The lodge has 6 rooms - 3 downstairs and 3 upstairs. The Elk Horn also has 2 cabins. The rooms are excellent. They are a very good size with in-keeping decor for the area. They are probably also... More
