Cooke City is a magical location every month of the year, and having the ability to stay at The HIgh Country Motel makes any winter or summer mission into the mountains complete as your return to good vibes, good people, hot tub and cabins/rooms perfectly suited to host you and your crew. The owners Brandon and Paige are always happy... More

Clean and comfortable---this is where you begin, followed by competent and caring---how we would describe the owners who live on the property. The store is another nice surprise---full of items for the kitchen as well as convenience. The laundry area is accessible and well lit. We felt appreciated and respected as guests! The area, if you have not visited Cooke... More

I was hoping to stay in one of their cabins with my dog on a trip to Yellowstone as I had years before, but the new owners said dogs were only allowed in the motel rooms or the duplex cabin. Fortunately, that was a available and it was wonderful. Although there was someone in the room next to me, I... More

My girlfriend and I have stayed here many times over the last few years. The High Country has cabins and a diverse selection of rooms, so ask and find the one that best suits your needs. We've stayed in a number of different ones (#8 is awesome!) and they've all been very comfortable. The owners Matt and Paige are awesome... More

this was my second visit to Cooke City and the High Country. I stayed in Cabin 1 which was lovely. Two double beds, fridge, coffee maker, TV and very clean. 5 minutes drive from the North East entrance to Yellowstone so perfect location. I can't wait to return in June 2015! :-)

We stayed at the High Country Motel during a thirteen week road trip across the North West of Canada and the US. We hit Cooke City early one evening after a glorious drive over the Beartooth Highway. We drove the length of town looking for a place to stay. It was mid October so a little out of season, but... More

The manager, Paige, is a very helpful young lady with a clean, comfortable motel and cabins. We met Paige by accident and are so glad we did. We had rented another cabin in another town and the cabin was not ready for us but we needed to make sure. It wasn't, so we drove back to High Country on a... More

Moose M, Owner at Cooke City High Country Motel, responded to this review

Hi, I regret you had such a bad stay. I apologize for the heater issue. If you had just let us know, the problem was a 3 minute fix. When it is a bit windy out, sometimes we have to relight the pilots. As we did not have to do it in any other rooms that day, we did not... More

We stayed here for 2 days while we played in Lamar Valley and on the Bear Tooth Pass. We stayed in cabin #2. The cabin was very comfortable and very clean. We didn't watch TV because we were so tired from playing all day. We ate at the Soda Butte diner in town, which was very good. We also ate... More

We arrived at the High Country after spending the previous night at a cabin at Lake Lodge in Yellowstone. That cabin was such a disappointment - extremely tiny, no coffee maker, no TV ( I knew there would be no tv). So it was heavenly to check into our room at High Country! It was the size of a small...
