Wolf Crossing Cabin - Silver Gate
Wolf Crossing is a small 1 bedroom cabin in Silver Gate approximately 3000' from the Northeast Entrance to Yellowstone and approximately 3 miles from Cooke City on Highway 212 (National Park Road and the Beartooth Highway). A basic cabin with a wolf theme. It has a bath with a shower, a double bed, a small refrigerator, a microwave, a toaster oven and a coffee maker. There is small front porch. WE HAVE JUST ADDED SATELLITE TELEVISION WITH 150 CHANNELS AS WELL AS WIRELESS INTERNET FOR YOUR LAPTOP.
There is a general store in town within walking distance as well as the Log Cabin Restaurant and the Sun Dog store. A mountaineering store is also within walking distance. Soda Butte Creek is located across the road approximately 600' away. In addition to Yellowstone National Park, we are surrounded by the Absaroka Wilderness as well as the Gallatin National Forest. Great hunting, fishing, hiking, cross country skiing, snowmobiling, kayaking and wildlife viewing abounds. This small cabin makes a quiet and unique base-camp for a world of outdoor activities.
A pine marten regularly comes onto our porch. Also 6 deer in the yard and a moose (in June). A wild turkey regularly perched on our rail in June. Raven, Clark's Nutcracker, Stellar Jays and finchs all eat sunflower seeds from the rail. Also the occasional moose and bear. (See photos of wildlife below.) Soda Butte Creek is about 150 yards across the road. You can walk about 1/4 mile to the Bannock Trail (trailhead) and go 2 1/2 miles into the Park on a gentle path - or cross country ski trail in the winter. All of Yellowstone is known for wildlife but we are the nearest entrance to the Soda Butte Creek/Lamar River Valley end of the Park which is the most noted area for wildlife viewing ("The Serengeti of North America"). You can rent a spotting scope at the General Store. Go out early in the morning and set up on a hill beside the road overlooking the Lamar River and prepare to be amazed. NOTE - There are only 3 cabins - wolf lovers know the names.
