About Max and Jenn
Jenn and Max are based in Seattle, but were annual visitors to Yellowstone for many years before choosing to build a cabin near the park. Max's work as a nature photographer drew him to the natural wonders of the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem, and the cabin was "a really good excuse to visit more often."
Why Max and Jenn chose Silver Gate
We were very fortunate to find a property that was so close to the park, is filled with trees, has mountain views and even has Soda Butte Creek running through it on the way to the park. It really felt like being in Yellowstone despite technically being outside the park boundary. Seeing moose grazing in our willows or spying one of the town foxes hunting in the meadow really makes us feel at home in nature. Even when we're tucked inside, we're constantly peeking out the window to see if any of our wild neighbors have come by to say hello.
What makes this Cabin unique
We're excited to offer this new second cabin as an option for smaller families and groups. The cabin is in a great spot. Positioned on the opposite side of the creek from the highway, our guests are able to enjoy a fair bit of peace and quiet. There's also a stand of trees in between the two cabins, so concurrent groups can maintain privacy. During winter, visitors can ski out from the cabin, or ride their snowmobiles onto the Bannock Trail up to Cooke City and the backcountry. With so much of the property growing wild, we love going for peaceful walks along the creek, brushing past the moose's favorite willows and walking beneath the pine trees as woodpeckers tap away and squirrels gather food.

Ursa Cabin Review
Great Cabin! The cabin was beautiful and was described accurately. The property had other neighbors closer than expected. There were no problems with any neighbors. Great location 1 mile from Northeast Yellowstone entrance. Communication from Max and Jenn was outstanding. We arrived a day earlier than we were expected our error. Contacted Jenn she was able to allow us to start our stay one day earlier for an additional one night fee. We appreciate her fast response and assistance getting us into the cabin that night.Fortunately the cabin was not being used that night. The kitchen very well stocked. WiFi and TV worked well. We recommend this property for anyone wishing to Vacation at Yellowstone close to Lamar Valley. We enjoyed our stay and and central location to area attractions and scenic drives.
We loved it!
We stayed at Silver willows “the bear” over Labor Day and the following week. We loved our time there. The cabin was clean and comfortable and a cozy place to be when it rained. The location was perfect for exploring the Lamar Valley. We enjoyed learning more about Yellowstone by looking through the photography books that were on the coffee table which featured Max’s work! We did not need the beds upstairs but it looked so comfortable up there also. This is a perfect cabin and location if you want to be close Yellowstone, but avoid the crowds. I enjoyed learning about the introduction of the wolves into the park, and this was where it was done. hope to be able to go back!
Great Yellowstone Vacation
Very nice newer location, well constructed and comfortable for 4 people. As stated in the advertising the ladder to the loft sleeping area would be a challenge to some but people with youth will have no problems. Lots of useful stuff inside including detergent and softener for washer and dryer. Only down side was exterior landscape made it almost unusable, weeds 2-3 feet tall. Overall a very good stay. Don
Review of stay
Once again, we were tremendously satisfied with our stay at Silver Willows (Ursa this time). In particular, the internet service was excellent. We plan to return in a year or two!
Ursa cabin had everything you could ask for in a vacation retreat. It was in a quiet town at the edge of the park. The cabin was fully equipped and just what we looked forward to for months. We unfortunately had to cut our trip short but will definitely be back!! We love this area! ❤️
Cabin is one of the nicest we have rented in Silver Gate!
