We stayed 4 nights at the lodge, while on our western tour. Close to the East Gate of Yellowstone, and yet away from the crowd. A beautiful setting, so serene. Our cabin was cozy, with real handmade quilts on very comfortable beds. The food was amazing. I don't think we have ever had a better steak than the one Kevin... More

Location was great, service was great and the cabins were very quaint. We had a nice time talking to Kevin & Debbie, they seemed interested in us not just because they had to be. We ate a couple meals there, the food was good but in my opinion a bit over priced. All and all our stay was nice, accommodations... More

Only 11 miles from Yellowstone it is located in beautiful scenery. Many of the cabins are listed on National Register of Historic Places. The cabins are small but cozy and clean. The dining room decor was lovely and the food was all home made and delicious. The cabin and food were a good value compared to prices in Yellowstone. We... More

Beautiful Setting very close to Yellowstone Park. Proprietors Kevin and Debbie were wonderful. The staff was very friendly. The food was great, prepared with fresh ingredients. We stayed in cabin 7. I gave it 4 stars not 5 because our cabin had too many furnishings. There was little space in which to move around and the housekeeping can be better.... More

This cabins only property is located just outside the eastern entrance to Yellowstone and made a convenient stop before heading into the park. Our cabin was VERY small, but had a queen bed. There is a real lack of space to put your "things" while you're staying and we felt like we were tripping over one another trying to get... More

WARNING! Do not visit Yellowstone unless you stay at Elephant Head Lodge. From charming cabins, to scrumptious food, to extraordinary service, Kevin and Debbie Millard and their warm, attentive staff are hospitality personified. A heartfelt thank you for contributing to a perfect vacation. Dr. Judith Kolva

We returned to Elephant Head Lodge after 12 years and were pleasantly surprised. The owners (Deb and Kevin) were extremely pleasant and made our large rowdy group of 12 feel welcomed. The staff was pleasant, meals tasty and cabins clean. Our group really appreciated the opportunity for late check out to allow us to shower after our horse back riding... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Elephant Head Lodge is a small AAA log-cabin mountain resort located just 11.7 miles East of Yellowstone National Park and 40 miles west of Cody, WY. The lodge and most of our cabins are listed on the National Register of Historic Places. It gets its name from a rock formation overlooking it. The Lodge, Restaurant, and the "Trapper" cabin were built in 1910 by Buffalo Bill Cody's niece, Josephine Thurston, and her husband Harry W. Thurston. Harry chose the site for its dependable water for early travelers to Yellowstone - and for trappers and Indians. Our small lodge is a wonderful base for touring the Yellowstone National Park, Cody, and the Shoshone National Forest. It is a great place for horseback riding, relaxing, fishing, hiking, and viewing wildlife, as well as good homecooked meals, with homemade bread, soups, and desserts, as well as famous homemade cinnamon rolls. Cabin rates vary depending on size (house 2-8 people per cabin)& accommodations (some with kitchenettes). High season rates Memorial-Labor Day $153-356/night. Low season rates May & September until early October $137-320/night. All with bath(s) & non-smoking. ... more   less
