“Pleasant Surprise”
Reviewed July 11, 2013

We read bad reviews on the lodge and we were very reluctant to make a reservation. No other place - so reserved it any way - over phone - Bill is the owner - Talked to him directly for the reservation.

We arrived in Cooke City on the night of June 29. God save us!!! Before we arrived we called Bill to let him know that we will be late. He assured us not to worry - He did put us on Cabin#7 - the cabin will be kept open for us. When we arrived at 9:30 PM, there was well written (cordial) note on the door of the main office directing us where our cabin is located (behind cabins 3 and 4). The cabin was an elegant one. Two storied (sort of) with 3 queen beds. The kitchenette was very thoughtfully organized. Salt, pepper, dishwashing detergent. Oh! disposable plates too (in addition to China and cooking utensils). Towels and soaps in the bath. Clean, clean, supper clean. Room service was excellent - Thank you young ladies. There was a minor problem with the bedroom lights (- fixed in no time once we told Bill the next day). We felt as if we some relatives of Bill and family.

I will stay every time I go to Yellowstone. Ideally located on the North-east side of Yellowstone. ~5 miles from the gate.

Thanks, Bill, please keep up the healthy tradition. I am recommending the lodge to others already.

Again, it was such a pleasant stay. 5-star treatment by Bill and company.

Room Tip: Talk to Bill over phone - call the directly.

Cooke City, Montana is a fun place to stop for the night on your way out of Yellowstone. The Antler's Lodge has some newer rooms and some older cabins. The actual main lodge is interesting with fireplaces and mounts on the wall. This place is not fancy but very clean and the beds are comfortable, although i think they need new pillows. The staff was extremely friendly and we enjoyed chatting with them about the area. Pride in ownership shows with this lodge. It is obviously well taken care of, with renovated rooms and beautiful flowers decorating the grounds. A great place to lay your head for the night, with the potential for a good nights sleep as it is very quiet. Don't go expecting the Four Seasons and you will be very happy.

Room Tip: Ask for a newer room, or for a more rustic experience choose an older cabin.

We spent one night at the Antlers Lodge in cabin 7, this cabin has 2 queens in a bedroom, a loft with another queen, a family room w/couch, recliner, TV, a kitchen and bathroom. It was very roomy for our family of 5, very clean and simply appointed and we wished we could have stayed there longer. The "lodge" is really nothing more than the original lodge building that was closed to the public when we arrived (would have liked to see it) and a handful of cabins of the same age, plus a new cabin nestled in between them (cabin 7), a unit of a handful of motel rooms that appear to be same age as Cabin 7. There is no breakfast or any other amenities, but for us this was fine. We had just driven Beartooth Pass and needed a place to stay before heading into Yellowstone. The town is about .5 miles long, the old original general store is worth a visit, the Trading Post is a very nice gift shop, and the restaurant we ate at in the Soda Butte Lodge (can't remember restr. name) was very good.

Nothing like spending nearly a hundred bucks for rudeness from the host and don't-let-the-door-hit-ya-in-the-backside attitude from the hostess. Cabin was great. I could tell a lot had been done there. shampoo and a porch light that worked would have been nice, for the money spent. Coming back to the cabin on a dark night with no light outside, in a strange place, having to walk over rocks uphill is a might tricky. That was ok but the host and hostess? gosh. why ARE you in the lodging business??? I see so many reviews about how great you two are.... what on earth did we do to piss you off other than show up an hour and 20 minutes after making a reservation; arriving before dark?

We love staying at the Antlers Lodge! The owners are friendly and work their buns off to update and maintain all of the cabins and rooms. We try to spend time in Cooke City at least once a year, but haven't had the time the last couple years. So when we checked in to the Antlers this weekend, we were amazed at the progress Bill and Kay have made since our last visit. We've stayed in a different cabin each time, and now that we've found #4, I think we'll stick with this one. It's newly remodeled and looks great! They've now got super fast wi-fi accessible from our cabin and more channels on the satellite TV.
I've read many other reviews on this site, and I have to say - if you think you're going to find 5-star accommodations anywhere near this town, you're crazy. The Antlers cabins are cozy, comfortable and always clean and fully stocked. If you run out of something or have any questions, Kay is more than happy to assist.
Her two new Saint Bernards are a highlight of our trip and are extremely nice and friendly.
Speaking of animals, we were pleasantly surprised this morning when a moose and her baby passed right in front of our cabin, down passed the lodge, across the highway and into the woods. In past trips, we've seen a fox and her babies next to our cabin.
Antlers Lodge and its cabins and motel rooms are exactly what you'd hope to stay in when going through the mountains into or out of Yellowstone, in the very best ways.
We can't wait until our next visit!

One of the worst accommodations I've ever encountered. The cabin was so dirty and run down we ended up not staying - even though we'd already paid for two nights. As other reviews have already noted the hosts were not very friendly or available. We couldnt even find them to complain about the room. So we just ate the cost and went down to Silver Gate and found a beautiful B&B cabin that included an incredible breakfast and extremely nice hosts for less money than the Antlers. Since this was a 30th anniversary trip - wed met in Cooke City - we felt fortunate to have found these beautiful clean well-kept cabins in Silvergate.

Room Tip: Go down to Silvergate - about three miles towards the park.

When we arrived, the place was locked up. There was a note which said they were in back and to come find them. They were nowhere to be found. A handyman finally unlocked the lobby, ran our credit card and gave us a key. That was the last we saw of anyone. The "remodeled" cabin was completely sub-standard with poor beds, layers of dust, and essentially sheets over the windows. We had booked 2 nights but decided not to stay the second night. When we went to leave, again, the lobby was locked and no one was to be found. We left the key in the mail box along with a note asking for a refund for the second night. When they finally called the next day, they said they didn't find the note until 4:00pm and could have let the room had they known earlier. By the way, it appeared that we were the only "guests", it was deserted and felt like the Bates Motel. Don't waste your money with these folks.
