Cooke City-Silver Gate Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin Suite, Full Kitchen, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

We have named this cozy log cabin suite the 'Wolf Den'. You will find it the most comfortable, private and yet rustic accommodations around.

The owner, Cheryl, runs the very unique store, in front. She is very friendly, accommodating and full of information. If you have never been to Silver Gate, you won't be disappointed in this magical little town. The scenery is spectacular!

I look forward to sharing and hearing the experiences of our guests. We hope to see wolf watchers, researchers, Yellowstone visitors, skiers and naturalists. All four seasons are beautiful here, featuring Yellowstone Park as our back yard.

We will take care of you during your stay, just as we would our own family!

Why Cheryl Ciccarelli chose Montana

We love Yellowstone Park and want to exchange experiences with travelers to this magical place!

What makes this cabin unique

Silver Gate is quiet, private and purely comfortable. With Yellowstone Park one way and the Beartooth Wilderness the other, we are uniquely located to so much beauty. Cody, Wyoming is only 90 minutes away. Red Lodge, Montana is only a couple of hours by way of the Beartooth Scenic Highway. Cooke City is historic and rustic.

Charming rustic getaway at the northeast entrance to Yellowstone

  • 4 of 5

Cheryl is very friendly, hospitable and also very knowledgeable of the surrounding area (letting us know of the Shakespeare in the park performance)and wild life sightings. The Wolf's Den accommodations are homey and complete with linens, and bath accessories some of which are hand made by Cheryl. The view of the sun setting over the mountain peaks is amazing from the kitchen/dining room window. The kitchen is fully stocked with pots, pans, utensils and staples you might have forgotten. Guest staying at the Wolf's Den get complimentary ice cream from the Stop The Car Trading Post at the front of the building, make sure to try the wild huckleberry! Cooke City just down the road is truly the coolest small town in America with bison crossing the streets, and shop owner very friendly. If you want to see wild life up close and personal get up extra early and get to Yellowstone as the sun is rising. So worth it!

Wonderful experience

  • 5 of 5

The Wolf Den was a great experience. A cozy original log cabin extension of the store building with great antique furnishings. We had everything we could have wanted stocked in the cabin, a very functional kitchen, an amazing comfortable antique sleigh bed and a bath that met all of our needs. The best part was the owners, great helpful and friendly people that are available daily if you have any questions, they live just down the road. Be sure to check out the Stop the Car Trading Post store that is in the front of the rental building, they have handmade crafts and include a daily ice cream or coffee drink with the rental, the Silver Gate Grizzly shake (coffee/cream/fudge ice cream with a double shot of espresso) is amazing. Don't be concerned about the store being connected to the rental, it is no inconvenience at all. Cheryl, we will be back and 9 days was not long enough, we will schedule our whole stay there next time. Give this a try for your next Yellowstone vacation, you will be coming back! PS Also loved staying in Silver Gate.

If we could give it 10 STARS we would! It was the BEST

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have picked a better place to stay while we vacationed in the Yellowstone area. WE had a great time while staying at the Wolf Den in March. We loved the location to and from the park area that is open. They had everything that you would need while staying there. The layout is perfect we think. It was quiet and very comfortable. The access to the park is the best! Tom and Cheryl were the most accommodating and friendliest people along with all the locals in Silver Gate! We can't say enough about how nice they are and with answering any questions we had. Don't hesitate to choose the Wolf Den if you are visiting the Yellowstone - Cooke City area. You won't be disappointed. They have the coolest shop "Stop The Car Trading Post". You don't need to do your souvenir shopping anywhere else. We did it all right there. They also have great lunches! We can't wait to get back down there. Thank you Tom and Cheryl for being so down to earth and friendly! You two are great!!!!

Best Vacation Ever

  • 5 of 5

Best place I stayed during my to week vacation in Yellowstone, out or in park including Old Faithful Inn. Property was very clean and well maintained, but it was Tom and Cherly the property managers who really made this a great place to stay. If I ever get a chance to come back to Yellowstone I will stay here again.

Wolf watching nearby! It would not be unusual to see moose, elk, fox or bison outside your door! We are only one mile from the Northeast gate to Yellowstone Park. Cooke City is only three miles up the road, which leads to the Beartooth Scenic Highway and Red Lodge, as well as the Chief Joesph Scenic Highway. Silver Gate is also the favorite gateway to Lamar Valley.
