We stayed in a cabin at Elephant Head Lodge during our trip to Yellowstone Park. It is 11 miles from the East Entrance to the park. The staff was helpful and friendly, our cabin was lovely and just perfect for what we wanted. Note: there is no cell phone service or televisions, but we liked that! They even booked a horseback ride for us at a neighboring lodge which was just a few minutes down the road. We had dinner a couple nights in the dining room and the food was excellent. We enjoyed meeting all the staff who were very friendly and helpful with information about the area and the park. We would recommend and definitely stay there again!

When we first checked in, the realization of no cell service, no tv was scary! Ultimately, so wonderful to be able to unplug and enjoy our surroundings and each other. The cabins were nice and comfortable. The dining room was awesome both for breakfast and dinner ( they also packed us a sack lunch for our day in the park). Will come back.

We had spent a long day at Yellowstone fighting traffic and crowds and hadn't yet booked a place. From 4 pm on, we had no cell service. We were also traveling with our dog. We left the park around 8 pm and saw a lodge with a vacancy sign. They were full after all but called places down the road until they found a place with one cabin left. It was small but adorable. Original log cabin built by Wild Bill Cody's niece. Her husband knew the land was fed by a fresh spring, still in use. Quaint, cute and comfortable. Shower is great (no low flow here). No cell service, internet or TV. Sat on the deck and watched the stars. Food in the dining room was good, basic homemade fare (get the steak!) and staff very helpful and friendly. Famous for their cinnamon rolls although we didn't have. Full-service bar open until 10. Owner lives and works on the property.

This was a great place to stay! We did not make lodging plans before our trip and luckily they had 1 cabin available. It was pricier than we were hoping, but I think it was reasonable for prices we found for cabins in the area and we got the great cabin experience we wanted. The cabin was too large for just 3 of us, but it was the only thing available in the area without having to drive much further away from Yellowstone. It also had a restaurant that was good. They even stayed open for us after they closed because we arrived as they were closing and we would have had to drive who knows how far to get dinner. Very friendly staff! We stayed in the Wrangler Cabin. It had lots of sleeping room and would be great for a family to stay in. Only downside, there is no cell phone service in the area. They have a landline that can be used if necessary. It would have been nice to have some internet because we didn't have phone service all day, but it is also nice to unplug.

We do have a computer available for that basic internetting needed. Yes we get to unplug from the hassle of the outside world and are able to offer a true vacation. Hope to see you again sometime - thanks for coming.

Our stay was amazing! The staff greeted us with smiles upon our arrival! The wind whistling through the quaking aspens, the quiet retreat, the fishing and eating our catch, the "Goldilocks and 3 bears" style cabin was a dream...rustic and just perfect! This east entrance to the park is most impressive and being 11 miles from that entrance was amazing. I miss it already! We stayed in #12, the homesteader.
