Last summer we (45-ish couple, 15 yr old daughter, 20 year old daughter, and the boyfriend that became the fiance on the trip!) enjoyed a twelve day vacation in Yellowstone, Grand Tetons, Cody, and then back to Yellowstone. We all agreed that, for us, the highlight of our trip was our stay at Silver Gate Cabins. We stayed in the Back Cabin. It was just right for us. A little rustic, very private, and just minutes from the best wild life viewing anywhere! We saw marmots, stellars jays, and even big horn sheep (with a spotting scope) from our front porch. Bears were spotted in the road before we even got to Yellowstone most days!
The staff was friendly and very helpful. They warned us when we made reservations to be SURE and bring in food from Cody because there is no grocery store anywhere even remotely close by. (There is one restaurant in town, but it was very expensive.) The owners also operate a very small store that has the bare essentials for a light meal. The owners also have spotting scopes available for rent. They gladly provided my husband and son-in-law-to-be a lesson.
Our cabin had two bedrooms. One bedroom had a queen bed. The other bedroom had bunk beds and another bed. There was a bathroom with a shower and a kitchen and living area combo. The kitchen had all the necesseties, but no luxuries. There was a wood stove but we didn't need to use it. We did enjoy the grill, however. There was no TV and no phone. Cell phone coverage was spotty at best. Just the way we wanted it!
The last time we went to Yellowstone we spent most of our time on the western side. We even stayed in West Yellowstone. If I'm ever fortunate enough to go back I will spend my entire stay at the Silver Gate Cabins. For me the Back Cabin was perfection!
