We stay here each time we go to Cooke City to Snowmobile. Bill and Kay have always been great to me and all the other members of our group we go with, even before we became regulars there. I've never been to Cooke City in the summer but I've heard how different that crowd is from the winter crowd of snowmobilers and backcountry skiers. Must be a big difference as everyone that I've ever talked to there or has stayed there has very much enjoyed it.
When we go, typically it is a large bunch of guys going to enjoy the snow and ride snowmobile. We go out there not expecting the W Hotel, but have always been had clean rooms and cabins and have been made to feel welcome (this also might be due to the fact that we are excited to be there, treat everyone with respect and not like they are our servants and say please and thank you). I've stayed in several of the cabins and the newer hotel style rooms. The kitchens aren't the best, but we don't cook too much as there are great places that are very reasonable in Cooke City.
The food is great too. We switch between breakfast at Antler's and Bearclaw Bob's each day, both have great breakfasts. Antler's also has good burgers, pulled pork, philly cheese sandwiches, and pizza.
The location is perfect for snowmobiling. There is a very limited amount of parking spots in Cooke City if you are pulling your trailer in, and we can always find someplace to park our truck and trailer. Sometimes you'll have to ask others to slide their rigs over but everyone is usually pretty happy and if you're not asking for something ridiculous people will help you out. You are also 15 seconds away from being out of town on the trails.
Very pet friendly place also. Antler's Lodge itself has two St. Bernards that are around and very friendly.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Antlers Lodge was built in 1913 and was the first tourist facility in Cooke City. We have a variety of accomodations to offer; older remodeled, rustic cabins for that "Montana" feel, or if that does not appeal to you, we have a new cabin and new motel rooms. Most of our cabins have kitchenettes, vary in size and will sleep from 2 to 6 people. ... more less
