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.

You can find our very popular page on Facebook. Just look up Stop The Car Trading Post and hit the LIKE button. Email or call us with any questions, or if you require additional photos or information.

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.

LOVED our time at the Wolf's Den

  • 5 of 5

This was our third time visiting the Yellowstone area and our first time spending time in Silver Gate. I'll start by saying we will most definitely be spending time at the Wolf's Den on all future trips. We have stayed at multiple areas just outside the park and several hotels within...they are all great and have their own charms, but our stay at the Wolf's Den was our best experience yet. For starters it provides the easiest access to the Lamar Valley, which happens to be our favorite part of the park (we find it to be the most beautiful and the most full of life). On this trip we saw wolves, grizzly, and moose all within a few miles of our cabin. The Wolf's Den itself was perfectly cozy and clean with all the comforts one would need. The decor was exactly what I would think of in a Yellowstone cabin and we felt much more relaxed when we came back in the evenings as there is so much more space as compared to a typical hotel room. Cheryl (the owner) was a pleasure to work with and took time out of her day to recover some items we left behind and make sure they were returned safely. Lastly, we really enjoyed the area itself. All the locals were extremely nice!!! Be sure to spend some time in the Silver Gate area and book your stay at the Wolf's Den!

Home comforts in a cosy cabin

  • 5 of 5

The Wolf Den is located very near to the North East entrance to Yellowstone National park which is a great place to drive into the park. The cabin is at the back of the shop and has just about anything you will ever need to make a cosy home. The cooking facilities and utensils are superb much better than we have had at other rentals. Cheryl was very friendly, although as we were out exploring the park all day we didn't see her much. The cabin is extremely clean with a lovely comfy bed.

The icing on the cake was a fall of snow 12th September so we left the Lamar Valley in a covering of white.....amazing as the day before we were in tee shirts and using sun screen!

I would highly recommend a stay in The Wolfs Den. Thanks Cheryl

  • 5 of 5

Cheryl provides a warm, quiet, cozy cabin that we have grown to love! She adds many personal touches to Wolf Den. If you are looking to get away from park traffic, lots of people and touristy stuff, go to Silver Gate and book Wolf Den!

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!

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.
