Spacious, very clean and quiet. We stayed in an upstairs room on the end. There was plenty of room for a family of four to move around without feeling cramped. Comfortable beds. The counter, sink and mirror are in a separate area from the shower and toilet which made getting ready in the morning very efficient. Outstanding mountain views can... More

Elk Horn Lodge is just phenomenal. Not only is it the best place to stay in Cooke City, it is the best place to stay in the entire Yellowstone area. The rooms and cabins are clean and comfortable, and Jeff and Lisa make you feel like a member of their family. I just can't say enough about them or their... More

Cooke City and the Elk Horn Lodge are great stops when traveling west from Montana to the Northeat Entrance to Yellowstone Park. Our room was clean and comfortable and offered every amenity needed for a good night's sleep. Jeff, the owner, could not have been more warm or friendly, offering recommendations on where to eat and the best places to... More

The wife and I visited Grand Teton and Yellowstone for a second time. We had success viewing wolves and grizzlies on a previous visit up in the Lamar Valley in the NE part of YNP. Seeing these elusive but majestic creatures means not only being in the right place, but one must be there at the right time. We were... More

We stayed in the motel section in room six. ( there are 6 rooms and 2 cabins) The room was very clean, the bed was comfortable, and the room was large. The Wifi worked great, which was needed to communicate since there is no cell phone service in Cooke. Cooke is a very small lovely town, located on the beautiful... More

Friendly, ideal location. Charming (shabby chic). Jeff and Lisa were very friendly and informative 'you'll never see a Bear sitting in your cabin'. Located five miles outside Yellowstone's North East entrance, Elk Horn Lodge is ideally situated between the amazing Beartoothe Highway and Yellowstone Park, with Yellowstone's Lamar Valley (Grizzly country), just thirty minutes drive away.

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.
