Silvergate, MT is a quaint town located just a mile from the NE entrance to YNP. Silvergate Cabins is the best place to stay, if you wish to take in all that this part of the country offers: gorgeous mountain views, an abundance of wildlife, and that sense of hospitality only found in a small town like this. The staff is incredibly generous in their advice, friendly in conversation, and full of knowledge about the area. The cabin I stayed in had all the amenities one would need (comfy bed, kitchenette, bathroom) and the always important cleaniness factor was a five star. It even included a porch with chairs to take in the beautiful scenery, which I took full advantage of at night (the stars here are amazing). There was a campfire at the general store each night which allowed for great conversation with the locals and other guests. The general store has some essential grocery items, but if you are planning on doing the cooking yourself, you might want to pick up groceries on the way. If not, there is the Log Cabin Cafe across the street that has amazing breakfast, lunch, and dinner menus. Beware that there is no cellphone service or internet connection. I find that this reclusive element is almost therapeutic, because it allows you to temporarily disconnect from your stresses and immerse yourself in the moment. All in all, this was one of the best trips I've taken and I will be coming back for years!
