Elephant Head Lodge

Reviewed 12 September 2013

This cabins only property is located just outside the eastern entrance to Yellowstone and made a convenient stop before heading into the park. Our cabin was VERY small, but had a queen bed. There is a real lack of space to put your "things" while you're staying and we felt like we were tripping over one another trying to get anything done. We've been married 36 years, but this place has NO privacy for bathroom activity. The dining room served some outstanding food for both dinner and breakfast, with great views to go with your meals.

Room Tip: Get a larger cabin if you can afford it.

WARNING! Do not visit Yellowstone unless you stay at Elephant Head Lodge. From charming cabins, to scrumptious food, to extraordinary service, Kevin and Debbie Millard and their warm, attentive staff are hospitality personified.
A heartfelt thank you for contributing to a perfect vacation.

We returned to Elephant Head Lodge after 12 years and were pleasantly surprised. The owners (Deb and Kevin) were extremely pleasant and made our large rowdy group of 12 feel welcomed. The staff was pleasant, meals tasty and cabins clean. Our group really appreciated the opportunity for late check out to allow us to shower after our horse back riding excursion. I will continue to recommend this place.

We enjoyed our stay at the Elephant Head Lodge last month.very much. Our trip was a birthday gift for our two 16 year old grandsons. We couldn't have picked a better "base camp".
The dining room, and the food, at the lodge were a pleasant surprise. The food was excellent, and the service was outstanding. The entire staff was very friendly and helpful.
The short drive to Yellowstone was very convenient for our two day visits there.
Loved not having a tv or cell service. No need to interrupt our pleasant stay.
We look forward to returning in the future.

Food was terrible. Steaks tasted old and previously frozen. Owners (Debbie and husband) were the rudest people I have ever encountered in the hospitality industry. Prices were outrageous. Skip this inhospitable establishment and drive on down the road to the Trail Shop. If you do happen to visit and don't like it, well, "you can just leave" - at least that's what they told us.

The cabins are extremely small. They are really nasty, sheets are stained and dirty, curtains and couch is very dusty not the best odor in the rooms...the loft is extremely low, be careful u will hurt yourself up there. Debbie (who is the owner) is one of the rudest people I have ever met. The grounds are not maintained. If u can find somewhere else to stay I would recommend it I would never stay here again

The cabins are to small...the loft is a horrible place for children to sleep they hit their heads when setting up and could easily roll over the edge there is nothing there to protect them from doing that...the grounds are not maintained very well...the owners are extremely RUDE! Will NEVER stay here again

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Elephant Head Lodge is a small AAA log-cabin mountain resort located just 11.7 miles East of Yellowstone National Park and 40 miles west of Cody, WY. The lodge and most of our cabins are listed on the National Register of Historic Places. It gets its name from a rock formation overlooking it. The Lodge, Restaurant, and the "Trapper" cabin were built in 1910 by Buffalo Bill Cody's niece, Josephine Thurston, and her husband Harry W. Thurston. Harry chose the site for its dependable water for early travelers to Yellowstone - and for trappers and Indians. Our small lodge is a wonderful base for touring the Yellowstone National Park, Cody, and the Shoshone National Forest. It is a great place for horseback riding, relaxing, fishing, hiking, and viewing wildlife, as well as good homecooked meals, with homemade bread, soups, and desserts, as well as famous homemade cinnamon rolls. Cabin rates vary depending on size (house 2-8 people per cabin)& accommodations (some with kitchenettes). High season rates Memorial-Labor Day $153-356/night. Low season rates May & September until early October $137-320/night. All with bath(s) & non-smoking. ... more   less
