Cooke City-Silver Gate house description

Wolves, bear, moose and elk abound in our area of Yellowstone and the Beartooth Mountains. There are beautiful mountain views from the back deck, and front windows. Some of the best wild trout fishing in the world is minutes from the house. These include the Yellowstone River, Lamar River, Slough Creek, Soda Butte Creek, and the Clarks Fork of the Yellowstone.

A great family day can be spent touring the famous features of Yellowstone or taking a day trip to Cody, WY to see the Wild Bill Cody Museum, a grnuine rodeo nightly, a gun fight at the original Irma Hotel, good food, and many shops including the Sierra Outlet. Best time for animal watching is June and early July, while the best time for fishing is mid July through September. Hiking is fabulous anytime.

The house is clean, spacious and comfortable, with a Great Room and fireplace, modern kitchen and laundry with half bath on first floor. Second floor has two very large bedrooms: One has three single beds and the other a queen bed and a single. This arrangement will sleep a family of six or 5 singles. Also a newly remodeled full bathroom upstairs.

Outside thre is a rear deck with gorgeous mountain vies so close you feel like you can reach out and touch them. There is a grill and patio furniture for outdoor dining. There is also a very small stream in the yard which holds a few native Yellowstone Cutthroat Trout. Very private yard.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 1992

              About the owner: My husband Hank and I have over the years, run a fly fishing school, guided for 10 years in YNP, Hank builds bamboo fly rods. In our non summer home in VA we fox hunt on horseback and are active conservationists. We are life members of Trout Unlimited, and we both have received numerous awards from that organization. Presently, I am a retired teacher who writes Outdoor columns for a magazine and a local newspaper, and I have had an article on Yellowstone Cutthroat trout printed in Fly Fisherman Magazine.

              Why the Owner Chose Cooke City-Silver Gate:
              Our location has the best fishing in Yellowstone for native Yellowstone Cutthroat trout. Lamar River, Slough Creek, Soda Butte and Yellowstone River are all less than 30 minutes from our home.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              We are one of the closest residences to YNP in any of the gateway communities. In two minutes you can be at the NE gate.
