Cooke City-Silver Gate house description

The Woodland Star home is situated creekside, on our amazing and unique parcel of land in the small mountain town of Silvergate. This vintage log home has mountain charm with modern conveniences. It's bright and sunny, with large windows, wood floors, and a great 'fool's gold' fireplace! There's 2 bar chairs if you like to hang out in the kitchen, or a fabulous, large, and comfortable dining room table set. The living room is super comfy, with a couch, easy chair, and a large rocking chair and a DVD player with a nice size screen. We do have a bluetooth sound bar if you bring some music.

The cabin sits conveniently off the highway on its large lot, with a stand of evergreen trees in front for privacy. The sunny, West side has a large lawn with an amazing sitting area RIGHT NEXT to the Soda Butte Creek, as well as a mature stand of lodgepole pine trees in the back yard. We have a firepit next to the creek if you like to roast marshmallows!
You can enjoy fishing right from the yard! There's also a huge grassy town park right across the street with swings and teeter totters.

The home has great views of the surrounding mountains. You can often see mountain goats to the south, and mountain sheep to the north at the same time! The king size bed has huge views of a snow capped peak all summer, and the sound of the creek comes in the west window. The huge bedroom also has 2 twin size beds in it. The bedroom is on the south side of the home with great windows looking at the mountains, trees and creek.

This is a fantastic setting for a Yellowstone experience you'll always remember. The little town of Silvergate itself is very charming and you are close to the Lamar Valley, the best place in the Park to view wildlife. Also, the Beartooth Pass to Red Lodge Montana is, according to legendary news anchor Charles Kuralt 'the most spectacular road in America'! There are several hiking trails from the cabin, and 4 different creeks with waterfalls all a 30 min hike or less. Silvergate also has a couple of cafes, general stores, and gift shops. There are several lodges in our little town as well.

We look forward to hosting you and your family !!

John, Kate and Emily Mickus

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 1975

                      About the owner: John, Kate and Emily Mickus live in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. They are avid outdoors enthusiasts and love the Silvergate area!! 'This is the place we go to find adventure and wilderness from Jackson Hole! We love to provide a warm and comfortable experience for our guests!'

                      Why the Owner Chose Cooke City-Silver Gate:
                      We love the Northeast corner of Yellowstone. This area is inspiring to us with its towering peaks up close to the town, and the abundance of wild animals! It is truly a place to connect with nature, and to enjoy some really nice folks as well!

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      We have the most unique setting in the valley. Our large parcel of land right in the middle of Silvergate has both big views and sunshine as well as the sounds and delight of the creek running through!
