About the property

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 of the cabin. It is all one log cabin, built in 1934, with the rental suite in the back half. 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.

Why Cheryl Ciccarelli chose Silver Gate

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.

Perfect Den in The Snow

  • 5 of 5

The property is in amazing shape. We had a truly magical experience here. Silver Gate is a little oasis this time of year (with the road not open E of Cooke City) and Cheryl's property was so well taken care of that it provided us with a perfec toutpost. we even commented on the fact that if we were snowed in, it was big enough that we could have survived a couple of days of cabin fever!

Several folks have commented on the size and well-stocked nature of the kitchen, so I wanted to mention that we also loved the size and warmth of the bathroom - and that it was located down a longish hall from the main living space and bedroom. Terrific for privacy, and especially appreciated given that ours was a rather long stay!

The bed was incredibly comfortable and the bedroom warm (it gets much warmer than you would expect). Not a small thing, given that we were told this was the snowiest winter in 20 years!

The gas stove greeting us each evening with its warm flames when we walked in was the coziest thing imagineable - and it does an amazing job of heating! Wifi was faster and more reliable than expected.

In short, you could not ask for anything more! We felt very at home, and Cheyl's warm personality shone through in the thoughtful touches everywhere: extra blankets over chairs and couch, throw rugs in exactly the places you needed them to ensure not tracking snow everywhere, every kitchen implement and accoutrement I could have asked for, and more. All at a very good price for this area. We could have possibly saved a few dollars by staying in a motel in Gardiner, but even my very frugal sweetie declared it was worth every penny!

Thank you Cheryl!!!

WOLF DEN is perfect

  • 5 of 5

WOLF DEN is a really nice cabin to live in, especially if you are looking for a quiet place to stay in while you are visiting YELLOWSTONE NATIONAL PARK. The cabin is just next to the North East Entrance of the park. WOLF DEN is very comfortable and has a fully equipped & roomy kitchen. The owners of WOLF DEN are very nice and helpful. If you're lucky, you'll meet moose right outside the cabin as we did.

Porter, TX

Great location right out side the park.

  • 4 of 5

Cheryl is a sweetheart. The apartment is a large one bedroom. The kitchen was very well stocked and had everything one might need to cook good meals. The bed was comfy. There were plenty of games and videos to keep us occupied. Only real downside is limited internet. Cheryl had warned us about this beforehand, and there is free wifi at the Chamber of Commerce in Cooke City. We didn't get to see Jackson the Bison, but apparently he was on a date (Rutting Season).

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the kind words. The good news is that over this winter, we have been told that our satellite Internet will be getting faster with more data available to us... and at a cheaper price. We all will be looking forward to even better service for our guests. Thank you for staying with us and hope to see you again, real soon!

Yellowstone and Chief Joseph Scenic Byway

  • 4 of 5

Silver Gate is a fantastic location, only minutes from the Northeast entrance to Yellowstone and the beginning of the Scenic Byway, which is the most beautiful drive I've ever done. The Wolf Den is spacious and comfortable. The hosts are great and wow--their huckleberry ice cream is remarkable. Thanks for a great stay!

We had a great time and made a new friend named Jackson who is a bison that hangs out in the door yard for his meals. Our hosts were terrific and made our stay wonderful.

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.
