We stayed in a delightful rustic cabin. It is small, and it is rustic, but very clean and very charming. The staff was great, and the tiny little dining room was very good (also clean and very charming, good food, somewhat pricey).

Agreed, camping is the best way to experience Yellowstone, but if camping is out of consideration for some reason then the next best thing is staying somewhere that gives you a natural surrounding. We simply loved our Rendezvous lodge. The property does give a nice feel of staying in the woods with a horse stable, surrounded by trees and mountains... More

Visited for 10 days. Great place to visit, very professional and dedicated to the guests. Picturesque setting and very western décor. They have a number of wooden cabins, very comfortable and up to date. Great place to spend a week and visit Cody or Yellowstone National Park. Scenic drives everywhere. The lodge has outdoor grills for cook outs and hanging... More

We stayed here for 4 nights and that was enough time for us to wind down from all the traveling we did around Teton mountains and Yellowstone. If you want to get away from all the technology, this is the place for you. No wifi ,cell service or tv, . There is so much to see around there that you... More

We chose the Elephant Head Lodge because it was conveniently located between Cody and Yellowstone Park. When I first drove up I was concerned that I had made a mistake in choosing this lodge. It is VERY rustic. We stayed in the Dakota Cabin; built by Buffalo Bill's niece in the early 1900's. Very small, but authentic. In fact, the... More

My boyfriend and I stayed at Elephant Head for 3 days during a 14 day hiking trip in the West. I've visited Yellowstone many times before, and have stayed at several local ranches, and this was by far my least favorite. Our cabin was incredibly small and, while we usually don't mind the lack of AC in WY evenings, we... More

We stayed here for 2 nights and it was great. A bit secluded which made it better IMO. No cell service. There is an old rotary phone you can use if needed. Very rustic. Clean and Comfortable. Little log cabins with porches. Close to Yellowstone East Gate. Beautiful Mountain Views. Just a couple minute walk down to the river. We... More

Wasn't sure if we would like this place. No AC. NO TV. No WIFI. My teenagers loved it. We had a 2 bedroom cabin. IT had a kitchenette that was nice. We only stayed one night. Had I known we would like it so much. We would have stayed here instead of Yellowstone Valley Inn for 3 nights. We ate... More

We visited the Elephant Head Lodge a week ago (July, 2014) and loved it. Unfortunately, we were driving there in the dark and were warned by staff to watch out for animals in the road. When we arrived late that night, there was a clerk to greet us and show us to our cabin. In the morning, I walked around... More

We just returned from a trip out West with Yellowstone being one of the main destinations. We were going to stay in Cody and a hotel till this Lodge popped up during some research, sounded good so we booked a room here. Very glad we did. The lodge is only 12 miles to East entrance of Yellowstone compared to around... More
