Grey Wolf Cabin - One Mile to Ne Entrance to Yellowstone Park

Bedrooms 1
Property type house
Minimum Stay 4 nights


About the property

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.

About The Owner

We purchased this cabin after we fell in love with wolf watching in Lamar Valley. This is the closest you can stay to the wolves outside of Yellowstone.

Third stay at Grey Wolf!

  • 5 of 5

I have been traveling to Yellowstone annually for fishing and vacation for over 10 years and always stay in the Cooke City/ Silver Gate area. Grey Wolf is by far the best accommodations we've found so far.

The property is accurately described in the listing, is always very clean when we arrive and is reasonably priced. The storage room has everything you could possibly need as far as household supplies. The beds are very comfortable. Also, we like the fact that it is very close to the park entrance yet near good eating establishments as well. Grey Wolf is just off the beaten path enough to enjoy a bit of seclusion in your own section of the forest.

I've taken my family there and at other times fishing buddies ... we are always pleased. After three yearly stays in a row, Christy and I are on first name basis and she is readily available by phone during my stay...but it's usually her calling me to see if everything's OK!

I use VRBO a lot and this is one ranks among the highest of satisfaction for me.

Awesome Property Made for An Awesome Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at the cabin for a week, initially thinking it would make a good base-camp of sorts for our daily hiking excursions. It was so much more than that! Christy and Paul have thought of everything to make the stay a real vacation. From providing every resource you could imagine for hiking, fishing, sightseeing, and pleasure reading, the cabin also resonated warmth (and coziness) as soon as we walked in. Watching the wildlife outside the cabin was exciting and fun. We saw deer, bear, martens, and a lot of birds.

Being such a short distance from the NE entrance to Yellowstone was an added bonus for visits to the park during the week. The temperatures ranged from the 30s-40s in the morning to the 60s-70s at the end of the day. We would also recommend stopping at the local businesses in both Cooke City and Silver Gate - very knowledgeable staff at the shops (and the ice cream cones and truffles are excellent!).

We hope to return some time in the future - hopefully with others as there was more than enough room for more (2 queen beds upstairs in the loft).

It was a clean, well-maintained, and user-friendly cabin, and Christy was great to work with. We would recommend renting this property.

Owner's Response: Thank you for letting us know that you saw a bear and a marten at the cabin! How exciting for you! Always great to know that our guests enjoy the resources we provide at the cabin, so that when not in the park, one can learn more about the park and its residents. Hope you can come back for a visit soon.

The cabin is exactly as advertised. It's winter and from the outside it looks just like their pictures. Easy to keep warm even though we have sub-zero temperatures. We do this type of traveling often and I love a good wood stove and they have one here along with abundant dry firewood and to my shock, a good supply of newspaper to start the fire with (something most owners overlook). Even though there is only two of us, it was cozy but would easily house a party of six. Without doubt, we will return.

Owner's Response: Thank you for letting us know that you enjoyed your stay. We also love it there in the wintertime. Glad you appreciated the paper to start the fires, :-) we will make sure and bring up more.

Gray Wolf is amazing! We have stayed in other places around Yellowstone, but this is the best. We stayed there 3 years ago, and the cabin has been well kept and is just as nice as it was then. The owner was very helpful with area stores, restaurants and places to see wildlife, and we did see a lot of wildlife everyday. So to say we would recommend the cabin is an understatement, our only regret is that we couldn't stay longer!!

The Grey wolf cabin was very clean and comfortable. We loved the location, as it was very secluded and quiet. We saw wildlife every morning. Great cabin, hope to stay again.

All I can say is, GREY WOLF CABIN IS THE BEST and can't be compared to any other!

  • 5 of 5

Grey Wolf Cabin did not disappoint. My husband and I absolutely loved this cabin. The owner is fabulous. She supplied us with a dream vacation spot. The cabin is nestled in the deep dark woods surrounded by wildlife. We were isolated from everyone during our stay and had no interference from others, except from the occasional critter walking through the property. There was nothing we found lacking in the cabin. The owner thought of everything that someone may need. The cabin was clean and spacious. We will ensure our next stay is also at the Grey Wolf Cabin because there is no comparison to any other. This cabin is the “BEST”!
