When we called we recieved friendly help and honest information fromt the people there. We arrived late at night and it was raining and our key was on the main door of the general store/office. We were happy to see that the restaurant was still serving across the street and thought a bit pricey the food was great and the atmosphere was awesome. The bathroom being out back without much lighting worried the girls but it was cool. Our cabin had been remodeled so it was very nice and very comfortable for what we needed, a place to lay our head. I was up early to see what everything looked like in the light and wow what a view this place is like something out of a movie. We loved the location and the easy 1 mile access to the north entrance to Yellowstone. We also were close to Lamar Valley which is major wildlife viewing. We kept track of a pair of Bison who left the park and walked through town to Cook City, saw Moose, Grizzly, Elk, Mule Deer, Fox, Coyotes but missed the wolves. The pastries from the bear claw in Cook City were great too. The only thing we might do different is find a cabin on the creek or more secluded. All in all we loved the place!

My criteria for our 1st trip to Yellowstone included: 1) We don't have a camper, 2) we didn't want to stay in a crowded campground within Yellowstone, and 3) we wanted to stay in an authentic, rustic cabin. Silver Gate cabins was the perfect choice.

Silver Gate #2 was so cute. It was totally what we wanted - a cute porch with rocking chairs and a true log cabin experience. The kitchen applicances, bathroom, and light fixtures which was nice. Our kids loved it. We had also wanted a fire pit. We were a bit disappointed that there was one fire pit for our row of 6 cabins; however, the "community" fire pit turned out to be a wonderful experience. We met a nice family from France, a charming Englishman, and a family from Montana. We also met quite a few people who had been coming back to Silver Gate for many, many years.

We loaded up our cooler & the back of our Tahoe with groceries in Billings and then drove the Beartooth Scenic Highway (very cool & majestic). As I mentioned, the kitchen had updated appliances - so it worked well to cook our dinners. They have pots, pans, cookie sheets - everything you'd need. It worked well fixing our own dinners.

The cabins are a mile from the NE entrance of Yellowstone Park. Be prepared for a 3 hour drive (one way) to Old Faithful...but the kids adjusted well after the first day (plus there's many interesting stops along the way to break up the drive). Based on this first trip, I think the NE entrance is best & most interesting (the prettiest is Mount Washburn area and Tower Falls) since we drove the same route every morning & night. Lamar Valley is awesome - lots of bison, grizzlies, and black bears. And I believe this is also the same area where Doug (who is the first person I talked to when reserving our cabins and happens to be a wolf spotter) researches wolves. Several people mentioned he welcomes anyone to join him on his wolf excursions which he does every morning. Our family is definitely interested in coming back to see the wolves with an experienced spotter.

We had a terrific time at Yellowstone and staying at Silver Gate definitely enhanced our entire Yellowstone vacation.

I don't know where all the positive reviews came for this lodging, but our experiance was very poor. The cabin we stayed in looked like it hadn't been cleaned....ever! The shower stalls were cracked plaster and were so filthy that we didn't even want to use them. For the price we payed for this cabin, I expected cleaner, more professially constructed cabins. There were two electrical outlets in the wall, one were there used to be a fire detector, and the other one had a partially destroyed fire detector (a very serious code violation and very dangerous to your personal safely...especially in a log cabin). Spider webs ladden the ceiling everywere. The weeds were a foot high around the cabins and the mosquitoes were everywhere, so you couldn't go outside. The only positive to staying here was the wonderful view of the mountains....but I couldn't recommend lodging to anyone.

A perfect place to get away from it all and a great location one mile from NE entrance of Yellowstone. However, for housekeeping rentals buy your food in Cody, WY because local prices are higher than the surrounding mountains. Be prepared for long drives to most Yellowstone attractions, like 50 to 100 miles and always be armed with bear spray on the trails. Spend a day on the beartooth scenic drive to Red Lodge, MT, a wow experience. Also drive the dirt road to Lulu Pass by Cooke City and visit an old mining camp and former gold mine.

Spent the night here before entering Yellowstone National Park. Very cute one room cabins, clean, with kitchenette and chairs to lounge outside. Beautiful area for hiking. Friendly staff at check in and check out. A little pricey
