GREY WOLF CABIN - ONE MILE TO NE ENTRANCE TO YELLOWSTONE PARK

Cooke City House Rental Photos and Description

House, 1 Bedroom + Loft, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Located just one mile from the Northeast entrance to Yellowstone, Gray Wolf Cabin is the perfect place for wildlife watching in Lamar Valley, sightseeing in Yellowstone National Park, and trips to Cody, Wyoming and Red Lodge, Montana on some of America’s most spectacular roads. Lamar Valley has been called the Serengeti of North America due to the vast herds of elk and bison, and large numbers of pronghorn antelope, big horn sheep, coyotes, deer, mountain goats, grizzly bears, black bears and many birds including ravens and bald eagles. Since the reintroduction of the wolf in 1995, this valley has also provided almost daily sighting of wolves belonging to the Druid and Slough Creek packs.

Yellowstone National Park has one the world’s largest collections of thermal features. It provides an endless array of destinations, starting with Yellowstone Falls, Yellowstone Lake, Old Faithful and Mammoth Hot Springs. There are thousands of geysers, fumaroles, mudpots, and hot springs for you to view. Seasonally, you can also soak in a wonderful natural hot tub at the Boiling River just north of Mammoth Hot Springs.

For an adventure outside of Yellowstone National Park, a two-hour drive will take you to Red Lodge, Montana over Beartooth Highway, one of America’s most beautiful roadways. Red Lodge is an old gold mining town, which has grown into a picturesque ski resort with numerous shops and restaurants. Heading to the east, the Chief Joseph Highway over historic Dead Indian Pass provides a wide vista over the Rocky Mountains. Chief Joseph Highway will take you to Cody, Wyoming, where there is a nightly gunfight and rodeo during the summer season. The Cody Museum contains five different sections, including western artworks, a wing with exhibits on Buffalo Bill Cody’s life, exhibits of the Plains Indians’ lives, a firearms exhibit, and a large exhibit of the wildlife of the area.

The cabin is located on one acre of secluded, wooded land, bordering on National Forest land. You can end your day with s'mores around a fire in the fire pit behind the cabin. For a short outing, you can make the 5-minute walk to a 60ft high waterfall or take the Bannock Trail into Cooke City.

Modern, yet log cabin feel. Clean and comfortable. Great views.

We arrived late on June 16th, 2014 for 4 nights, and left for Lamar Valley early the next morning. Others stayed for the whole week. The key we were told was to watch for a large group of people with spotting scopes. We were advised to rent a small camera that fitted the scopes at the wonderful general store in Silver Gate, which is a short distance from Cooke City. You can rent scopes as well, but everyone watching shared scopes, which worked for those with or without eyeglasses. The small cameras were designed to fit perfectly into the scopes. Or powerful binoculars allowed for great viewing also. This wonderful cabin is a perfect launching place for all types of activities. Just a quarter mile back is a beautiful small waterfall. A perfect early afternoon walk. The deck is large and great for BBQing or relaxing as a deer bounded across in front of us. We saw and photographed bison with young calves on the road, forcing us to stop and wait for the morning snack. We also saw grizzlies, black bears, a beaver, Sandhill Cranes, a family of Canadian Geese with 5 chicks, Lesser Scaup Ducks, Bald Eagles on the ground and doing acrobatic maneuvers with another bird over a recent catch, hundreds, if not a thousand, Bison in the valley, a large herd of elk, a mama moose and two babies, a grizzly munching on a carcass with two wolves waiting their turn, female elk. We saw elk so plentiful and comfortable that they're referred to as lawn ornaments" in Mammoth Springs. We also saw a mother coyote carrying a cub to safety away from the wolves and an Osprey nest with mother and father. This is a photographers dream. Then to return to the beautiful Grey Wolf Cabin in plenty of time for a short nap, or a trip into town to buy miniatures of every animal we had seen. I would go back again and again. Grey Wolf Cabin is so comfortable and well supplied with all the cooking utensils needed. The photographs and paintings on the walls are a perfect reminder of why Yellowstone is one of the great natural microcosms of nature at its finest. Thank you for the comfort and care taken to make this cabin perfect in every way.

Amazing cabin, awesome location, incredible wildlife

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I stayed at Grey Wolf for a week in late April. We wanted to see Yellowstone during the spring and this turned out to be the perfect base. The cabin itself has a nice rustic feel but with all of the amenities you'll need to relax after a long day of exploring. We cooked all of our meals at the cabin and the kitchen had everything we needed. The cabin is the perfect size: there is a master bedroom on the ground floor and a loft with two queen beds. As a couple we didn't feel like we were living in a giant empty house, but it would also work well for two couples or a family. The cabin is at the end of a dirt road, surrounded by trees and has a nice secluded feel with great views.

The cabin is five minutes form the Northeast entrance of Yellowstone, one of only two entrances open year-round and the gateway to the spectacular Lamar valley. If you’re coming to see wildlife in Yellowstone, then it doesn’t get much better than Lamar. If you stay at Grey Wolf you have easy access to a prime area of the park that other visitors will drive hours to see. In the week that we were there we saw eight grizzly bears, half a dozen wolves, bighorn sheep, foxes, coyotes, osprey and countless bison, elk and pronghorns. We did see a fair bit of wildlife with the naked eye from the road and on the trail, but you’ll need a spotting scope if you really want to follow the action (especially when it comes to wolves and bears). There is a shop in Silvergate that rents scopes and the folks from Grey Wolf are friends with the owner, so you’ll get a good scope at a good price. There are lots of experts out and about looking for wolves and bears, so it’s pretty easy to tag along with this friendly crowd and see some good stuff.

In addition to watching animals, we also went on a number of spectacular day hikes, and once again the cabin is a great base for these activities. We were a short drive from Yellowstone classics like Specimen Ridge, Hellroaring Creek, Slough Creek and Lamar River.

We couldn’t have asked for a better week in Yellowstone, and it wouldn’t have been possible without Grey Wolf. We rent a lot of vacation houses and the owner was top-notch, helping us out with a lot of logistical questions and just generally being a really nice person. If you’re looking to see some of the best parts of Yellowstone and stay at a unique location that gets you away from the crowds then you couldn’t pick a better spot.

Highest recommendation

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I concluded our 3rd visit to Grey Wolf Cabin in September. As always the cabin was clean and exceptionally well appointed, meeting our every need and then some. We day hike YNP and wildlife watch in spring and fall, returning to the cabin each evening, or day if we are inclined to lounge for a while. The proximity to the northern range is unbelievable, our favorite part of the park due to the wildlife. LOT"S of grizzlies this year, wolves, moose , bison, elk, deer, otter, mt. goats and big horn sheep this year. The cabin is well stocked for cooking and has never disappointed us. We will continue to return to GW as long as we can. I don't think you can beat it for a couple or small group. The owner has always been super to deal with and responsive to any suggestions. GREAT PLACE!

Even Better Than Described

  • 5 of 5
Loved this property! Beautiful home, great decor, and furnished with all the amenities and then some for what a couple or a family with large or small children would need. Games, books, snowshoes, we found nothing missing that we might need. Just bring your food and drink--truly. Everything else is there. Lots of room. Huge deck. Great views. All the local and greater area information you would need, including plant and animal identification guides. Clean and well-maintained. Not for those who need shopping malls, 5 star restaurants, and the big city crowds on their vacation. Positively great for those who want quiet, relaxation and closeness with nature. Definitely recommend without any reservations or concerns. Will stay here again!

Wonderful stay at Grey Wolf Cabin

  • 5 of 5
I want to thank you again for the lovely stay at the Grey wolf cabin. It is such a lovely spot and the cabin was so well appointed. One morning we had a mother deer and her two fawns in the back yard. The location is so close to the park, we saw most of our wildlife in the lamar valley area. We saw a bear every day, including a grizzly feeding on a bison carcass and a mama bear and her two cubs. The alpha female of the lamar wolf pack took down an elk just south of pebble creek and not too far off the road. We were lucky enough to see 7 wolves feeding on the carcass. Such a memorable trip. We look forward to coming back again soon!
