About Marcia Woolman
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.
Marcia Woolman purchased this House in 1992
Why Marcia Woolman chose Silver Gate
We are 20 minutes from the Lamar Valley which showcase wolves, grizzly, elk, deer, and many others depending on your interests and time of year and time of day to view them. This area is considered the best animal viewing in the Park. Also called the Serengeti of N. America. Hiking in our area can be a wonderful family hike to Trout Lake which is less than a mile long and takes you to a large lake with a walking trail around it, and besides getting to see huge trout there are also fish eating animals in the area as well.
What makes this House unique
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. The Lamar Valley is 25 minutes and has the best wildlife viewing in the Park for wolves, bears, and bison.

Lamar valley home base
Great home in a super cool small Montana town. Great home base for exploring Yellowstone. I picked this area for its close proximity to Lamar Valley. If your wanting to experience the areas mega fauna this is the place. Lamar valley is beyond words . Spend some time in this area, you will not be disappointed.
Very nice place
Nice house and location is awesome.

Highly recommend this property!
Fabulous location, good fishing, very friendly host and hostess. We are repeat renters. Always have a great time.
Our week in Silvergate was one to never forget. We really enjoyed staying in this comfortable cottage. The hospitable owners Marcia and Hank made sure we had nothing to complain about. Being located near a playground and very close to the Lamar valley we enjoyed the outdoors a lot. We especially enjoyed the hummingbirds in the yard, the wildlife in the Lamar Valley and the stunning views from the Beartooth highway.
It would sure be great to visit this scenic place again. Thanks a lot Hank and Marcia for helping create great memories!
We enjoyed having your lovely family as guests. Your three children brought smiles and fun to the house, and it was great to see them in the playground and off to Soda Butte in their swim suits. Brave!
We also enjoyed very much meeting Grandma and Grandpa who seemed to have as much fun as the kids. We hope to have you all come back again. I know you loved the wolf watching in the Lamar Valley. It is so close and such a privilege to get to see them. Marcia
Great location for fishing, hiking, wildlife and Cooke City. Marcia was very helpful with fishing and Yellowstone advice. We'll be back!
Thank you for this 5 star review. We do hope to have you come back again.
The stay in Silver Gate was wonderful. Marcia and Hank were great hosts. The Cabin was clean and had all the amenities anyone would need. The first day we rode over the Bear Tooth Pass to Red Lodge and on to Cody which was a beautiful scenic drive. The second day, being only a mile from Yellowstone, we toured the whole park. Yellowstone is beautiful and should be a must see for everyone. Thanks Marcia and Hank and thanks to all the other people we meet in Silver Gate all of whom were so friendly and helpful.
