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.

Silver Gate, MT and our lodging is located one mile from the Northeast entrance to Yellowstone National Park. Lamar Valley, home of the Lamar Canyon wolf pack, is a short drive. Winter park transportation is available nearby. This unit is adjacent to our store, Stop The Car Trading Post, which is open year round and stocks fresh coffee, hot cocoa, cappuccinos, espressos, snacks, soda, juice, Montana and Silver Gate made gifts and good conversation. The area is very remote and quiet during the winter. During the summer, it's in the hub of all that Silver Gate has to offer. This rental is perfect for wolf watchers, wildlife photographers, Yellowstone Park visitors, cross country skiers and other outdoor enthusiasts.

Very comfortable, but a little cold

  • 4 of 5

The Wolf Den is located at the Northeast Entrance of Yellowstone so is perfect for day trips to the Lamar Valley. It has the best stocked kitchen we have ever encountered in a rental property, and was very comfortable for the two of us. The owners are extremely helpful and nearby in case of problems. The only downside is that it is an older building, so very drafty with little insulation and gets cold. This is particularly true of the bathroom. Would stay here again.

Owner's Response: Yes, you were here at a very cold time. It is a log building and yes, the owners of the building are aware that some of the chink needs to be replaced. That will help with any drafts. So sorry about that. There is an electric heater in the bath and we should have better advised you of using that during the colder times of the year. So glad you stayed with us and got to experience the winter season, up here.

Our Winter x-country skiing/snowshoe escape was much apppreciated!

  • 4 of 5

The Wolf's Den cabin was very clean and cozy. The supply of cooking utensils and pots/pans was impressive! As was the owners supply of essential provisions. Although the thermostat was a little touchy, we stayed warm and cozy. Having a Bison walk by the window as we were eating breakfast was quite a suprise! We suspect that the batteries in the smoke alarms/CO detectors might need changing since one of the units kept beeping. We would recommend this cabin to friends and relatives, especially as it was pet-friendly. We enjoyed x-country skiing and snowshoeing right out the doorway,, as well as several locations in Yellowstone Park and the wildlife viewing throughout the area was wonderful with Bison and a Moose hanging around just outside the cabin!

The Wolf Den was very comfortable and charming.

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed the Wolf Den. It was very comfortable and welcoming. We were there for Thanksgiving week, so the Stop The Car store was closed and we were not able to sample the coffee or ice cream, but the wolf watching was only a short drive away. Spectacular scenery.

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

Car: necessary

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.
