I stayed in a cabin (and previously in a room). Both were fantastic. Wonderful views, comfortable, immaculately maintained. Hosts were always helpful but not intrusive. Great location in middle of town, good restaurants and stores, close to Yellowstone.

I have stayed at the Elk Horn Lodge numerous times when fishing the northeast corner of Yellowstone National Park. Lisa and Jeff are very gracious hosts, the rooms are comfortable and spotless, and Cooke City is a small town gem. I would not hesitate to recommend Elk Horn Lodge.

We've stayed with Lisa and Jeff during the last four summers while fly fishing in Yellowstone. They have been wonderful hosts each and every time. They repeatedly go out of their way to make us feel at home. The rooms are extremely comfortable and clean. The cabins are cute and allow you to cook and store more food. We've used... More

I have stayed at the Elk Horn Lodge several times over the last few years (my father has been staying here for at least a decade) and it is always a great experience.

Great place to stay in Cooke City. Jeff and Lisa are great hosts, nice clean place to stay and enjoy Cooke City and the Park. Have been staying at Elk Horn for 15 years and will always go back. If you hike, fish, hunt or snowmobile this is the place to come. Kim Kirkland West Virginia
