My husband and I just stayed at Elephant Head Lodge. We are so very glad that that was our choice! The cabin which we were assigned was so homey! It is a rustic place with all the comforts. Debbie, who is the owner, is so friendly, and will do her best to make you feel welcome. Mike was the kitchen person, as well as the fix it guy. We had some excellent meals from his kitchen. We stayed there two days before they were closing for the season, but everything was great!!!! Do yourself a favor...stay there.
I stayed here back in august and I talked to one of the employees who worked there and looked like he hadn't slept in days but he said if you want to work 18 hour days and be severely underpaid and the owner never showers she smells like chewbacca's hairy bean bag and she is very disrespectful to her employees and she never hires any more people and the cabins are super dirty and are not sanitary sheets haven't been changed coffee makers are moldy and dirty I waited over an hour and a half for a burger that was still frozen this place is severely understaffed
If you are looking for 5 star hotel treatment this place isn’t for you. But if you like genuine, laid back, comfortable, quiet and no distractions, I highly recommend EHL. Deb is a wonderful owner and host, service was good and very friendly and the food (homemade!) was absolutely delicious. The cinnamon roll was my favorite and my husband said the elephant head omelette was the best omelette he has ever had. The hand sliced steaks were cooked to order and delicious. The cabin was warm, cozy and clean. A bit outdated but who really cares about decorations? And it’s only 11 miles outside of the East entrance to Yellowstone. I stayed here over 40 years ago and then this past week and I’d stay there again.
This is a convenient stop off point if travelling in Yellowstone and we got to see deer at very close range. The place is in an amazing position. When you've said that, you've said everything. The owner bordered on hostile, the accommodation was dirty and dusty. Bill Cody's niece apparently built the cabins and I don't think the sheets had been changed since! The food was inedible and cooked out back on some old bbq which looked like it too belonged to Bill Cody. Unfortunately, my son had to look under the bed as I'd lost my glasses and it was thick with dust. We didn't take a shower as it looked too dirty. I did not mind the lack of TV, wi-fi etc - that was a plus for me, but there's no excuse for the dirty cabins.
This is the place to be ! My Husband and myself had a 2 night stay in a Log Cabin at the Elephant Head Lodge ( Sundance ) ! We were met by the owner Debbie , Lovely Lady ... She could not do enough for us to make our stay a happy one. We loved our Cabin called Sundance ! Had everything we needed for our short stay . I wish I could have stayed alot longer , as I loved walking around looking at the wildlife . Its also very near Yellowstone ! While we were there on the 1st Morning a couple of Bison were on the grounds . So calm just slowly walking around . The food was good ... Try the Soup it was out of this world ! Thank you Debbie and Co ! I hope to come back again one day !
