There aren't many options in Cooke City but the Elk Horn Lodge is a pretty good choice. The room was clean and reasonably spacious. However, be warned that the beds are soft. Also, our shower didn't work and that came as a bit of a disappointment, especially since the office didn't open until 8.

Best little lodge in Cooke City. Very nice room. It was clean, updated and warm. The rooms are right off of main street so the noise level is low. I have stayed in Cooke City dozens of times throughout my life and this is the place to stay.

Glad you found your room clean and warm. Since our lodge is located facing a side street the noise level is lower than those places facing main street. Thanks for the review! Lisa and Jeff

I have stayed at the Elk Horn twice - once in 2011 and once in 2014. Both were in late May/early June. The lodge has 6 rooms - 3 downstairs and 3 upstairs. The Elk Horn also has 2 cabins. The rooms are excellent. They are a very good size with in-keeping decor for the area. They are probably also...
