* It may be helpful to know that while Lamar Valley Cabins has a 4 night minimum, if you see an available window of 2 or 3 days in-between stays, please inquire as we may be able to book your stay.

Even the most experienced travelers marvel at how close Lamar Valley Cabins are to the greatest wildlife viewing the in world.

See the wolf packs of the Lamar Valley, view herds of bison and elk, and spot mountain goats, big horn sheep, grizzly bears, and countless other creatures a few short minutes away.

In the winter enjoy world class back-country skiing and snowmobiling! Enjoy the trails in Cooke City on your sled during the day, but come home to quiet Silver Gate at night.

At Lamar Valley Cabin you can start your days in the private, quiet, wood paneled breakfast nook. Gaze at 360 degree views of two spectacular mountain peaks while sipping your morning coffee.

As guests and family awaken and wander downstairs, enjoy plenty of space and seating as you make breakfast in the gourmet kitchen and get organized for the day.

Adding to the warm character of the large main room downstairs are two bedrooms upstairs furnished with wooden antique headboards and dressers. Queen beds in each.

Privacy and separation from the main living area, these bedrooms have a shared marble-tiled full bathroom and generous shower head with unlimited hot water.

The favorite place to sleep is in the ultra cozy foam double bed perched next to the picture window at the top of the stairs. From here visitors get lost in the unique, lofty views of Amphitheater Peak

Sleep two additional children or guests in the pull out bed in the sofa downstairs.

No need to over-pack - enjoy access to our LG washer and dryer!

Peace of mind is had by all as this cabin offers free unlimited long distance phone service as well as free wireless internet. Also, our friendly managers are right across the street, so anything extra you may they can get for you quickly.

Finally, you asked and we listened! This spring Jeff and I are building an outdoor grilling/seating area! If you are lucky, you can see mountain goats from the back yard and get a personal view of Jackson, the town bison who loves our backyard.

Wonderful winter destination

  • 5 of 5

The Lamar Cabin is a quality, comfortable and well-appointed home away from home. We chose the cabin to be in close proximity to the Lamar Valley and all the wildlife viewing opportunities it has to offer. The Lamar Cabin is just minutes from the Northeast entrance to NYP, but we found the wildlife viewing began even before we reached the entrance. We saw foxes right outside the cabin; heard bison padding down the road in the middle of the night; and photographed a moose crossing the street in "downtown" Silvergate.

The cabin, built by owners Jeff and Karen Hogan, is so well done! Not fancy, but tasteful, warm and welcoming. We brought in groceries (from Livingston) and cooked most nights. I had everything I needed for prep. Someone obviously put a lot of thought into organizing and equipping the kitchen. It was a pleasure to cook there. But on those nights when we wanted to eat out, we headed to Cooke City to the Soda Butte Lodge (and full bar) where we found some great burgers and tasty flatbread pizza. The menu is limited, but nice to know it is there if you need it. There were a couple of other options, but we stuck with the Soda Butte restaurant. Many of the restaurants and most stores are closed during the winter, but you can pick up a snack or a few incidentals and gas up the vehicle at the Exxon in the middle of town.

The Lamar Cabin was base camp for our day-long trips to the park. Once back, we would come into the cabin and turn on the gas fireplace, eat dinner and settle in for a cozy evening of reading or watching TV. Then, up the beautiful wooden staircase to bed! Lots of pillows, crisp white linens and heavenly mattresses made for a good night's sleep.

Cabin manager Jess made sure the cabin was impeccably clean and ready for occupancy! She lives just up the road in Cooke City and it was nice to know she was just an email or phone call away if we needed anything.

Booking was easy through VRBO, and once reserved, owner Karen was more than eager to answer our questions. She provided us with precise directions to the cabin and additional information to help make our stay safe and enjoyable.

Luxury in the Wild

  • 5 of 5

We spent three days here to explore the Lamar Valley in winter. The house is extremely well build and was perfect for the cold weather. The beds and furniture were in great condition and all the well-insultated windows added to the beauty. It is well supplied and we would have been glad to stay much longer. The moose and bison close by gave us a very personal experience for how hard they work to meet the season's demands. We highly recommend this for a small family or group of friends.

The cabin is wonderful and the little town is so great! My son loved the "kids nook" under the stairs. The Beartooth Highway is close by and a must-see. If you like to fish, the creek across the street is great. For breakfast we loved Bearclaw Bakery in Cooke City. It was really nice to have a huge kitchen and washer/dryer. We will be back!

Awesome Cabin

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four spent 4 great nights in the Lamar Cabin in Silver Gate during our visit to YNP. The cabin is comfortable, well supplied, quiet, and very enjoyable. We slept with the windows open and could hear the babbling mountain stream across the road. There is very little in that area at night and had no issues with traffic noise. The Silver Gate community is wonderfully rustic and the folks we ran into and met were very friendly. We really enjoyed having a washer/dryer on site. We did not cook in but all the utensils and pots/pans were available if needed. In previous years we stayed in West Yellowstone and Gardiner, but loved the location of the Lamar Cabin. A bit remote but is there a better way to start and end each day than a drive through Lamar Valley?? I highly recommend the Lamar cabin for its location as well as the quality of the cabin and the amenities.

Incredible location and amentites!

  • 5 of 5

this was a stop for our family of six during a three week journey around Montana and Wyoming. and the amazing drive right out the front door into Yellowstone's Lamar valley often made our 'commuting' back and forth to the other areas of the park better than the actual destination area! i will say it was a joy to find everything we could possibly need. plenty of pots/pans, dishes and utensils in the kitchen! after seeing how complete it was we actually opted to cook in instead of dining out. the two huge bedrooms and the nook bed meant all had plenty of space. the extra 1/2 bath downstairs meant others could bath without feeling they were 'hogging' the bath. the wide open downstairs gave everyone more than ample room to spread out and regroup before moving on. Adding the laundry equipment in made it a joy to pack away clean clothing instead of having to fly with dirty things. and when it all was done we sat on the deck with a glass of wine and enjoyed watching the wildlife walk on the hills right in front of us. we cannot say how please we were to have shared this lovely home for our stay- it would be difficult to find better!

Big Cabin in the Woods

  • 5 of 5

This was a wonderfully appointed, comfortable place to stay for 4 adults, close to Yellowstone and Cooke City. I especially liked having a WASHER/DRYER when we got caught in the rain. We never cooked in; instead ate at 2 marvelous places - Miners Saloon in Cooke City and The Log Cabin Café across the street.

My one complaint is that at $265. a night one should not have to drive the bagged trash to the dump 3 miles away. Check-out was at 10am and the Dump does not open till noon! I would also suggest that basics like paper towels, alum foil be supplied. The house was very well supplied with linens and was spotlessly clean.

All in all, we loved our stay and highly recommend it.
