Never thought we would stay in Cooke City, Montana! It was a treat! The Elk Horn Lodge met all of our needs for the night! It was clean, and to open your curtains for a mountain view is an UNDERSTATEMENT! We enjoyed our stay, and were on our way up the Bear tooth highway the next morning. Breathe deeply the... More

We stayed in the "Hotel Room". It was clean & had everything we needed. Cooke City was easy access to Yellowstone & Lamar Valley. Spent 2 days in the valley & we saw a wolf! It was a nice change of pace from the Tourist areas of Yellowstone (West Yellowstone). Small cozy mountain town. Beautiful area. We drove to Cooke... More

Strange things happened and the hotel we though we had booked for Cooke City fell through. Happened across the Elk Horn in the AAA guide and a cabin was open so I jumped at it. Great room, the kids love it. Was great talking to Jeff, they have a fine business here.

Thanks for giving us a review. We are glad you found us too! We have often wondered if being the only AAA approved motel in Cooke City was panning out for us so thanks for mentioning it! Glad you and the kids enjoyed your stay! There is no greater seal of approval then being recognized by one's customers! Thanks, Lisa... More

Jeff was very welcoming. The room was clean and spacious for our needs. Beds were very comfortable. Nice to have a little fridge and a microwave as well. Cooke City is a great little town and people were SO friendly.
