We stayed for 4 nights at Absaroka Mountain Lodge in late June (Cabin 11). I've always wanted to see this part of WY, just outside of Yellowstone and was attracted to this spot by the Shosone River and Gunbarrel Creek. Unfortunately because of the incredible amounts of snow, the rivers and creeks everywhere were raging torrents--unfishable. However, this was pretty close to Yellowstone Lake, about as close as you can get without staying in the park so it served our purpose well. Beautiful drive to the park--we saw bighorn sheep, deer, and bears right next to the road on the way in and out.

The small canyon where the lodge is located is just beautiful as is the Buffalo Bill Scenic Byway--gorgeous country. The place was busy with lots of visitors and we checked in quickly and quietly. This is clearly a great place for families with a small park and playground, activities for kids, nightly campfires and a mid-week BBQ. The cabin was very rustic--no tv or wireless--but very clean and cozy with mini-fridge and microwave. Beware of eating in your cabin though--critters including mice and bears apparently abound here. We couldn't keep food in the car so we hung it inside on the clothing rack in plastic bags and stored items in the cooler or fridge. This is our routine whenever we stay in cabins. Paper thin wall in the bath between cabins. (Ours was a duplex. Fortunately our neighbors were quiet with well behaved kids.)

We ate breakfast at the restaurant twice--excellent! Big portions freshly made homestyle food. Very friendly service. We did not take advantage of the horseback riding which appeared very popular.

I would recommend this place to families and to anyone who wants a "wild west" experience. Beautiful scenery, cowboys, horses, and friendly folks. And, I've heard, great fishing when the water is right.

My then teen-aged husband stayed here about 1965 with his parents on one of those automobile roadtrips around the US that were so common in the 50s and 60s. Of all the places he stayed, this is the one he wanted to return to. He found it on the internet, and I admit I was a bit skeptical, but we arrived and I fell in love! It was like stepping into a "wayback machine" and tourism during a kinder, gentler age. Quaint and retro, but well-maintained and kept up-to-date, the cozy cabin more than met our requirements. The staff was superb, the restaurant food was always well-prepared, and they fed us even when we straggled in late the first night when we were delayed by a snowstorm coming out of Yellowstone. The lodge's physical setting is enchanting.

this is a great location to base yourself to head into Yellowstone NP. the decore is what you'd hope for, it was just a great spot. Our room/cabin was great, although a little small and it was cleaned each day. However the food in the dining room left a little to be desired, I don't think we should be asked to cut into the steak to see if it's 'medium' isn't this what a cook should be able to judge!!! the food at the BBQ night was very 'average' the Ribs were cold and the corn was cooked to death. when we were leaving we were acused of leaving without paying the bill, in stead of apologising for over reacting (we were just packing the car before checking out) Terry wanted to argue with my wife. We're still waiting for a response to our email

My wife and I stayed at Absaroka Mountain Lodge for 7 days, at the end of June. Our stay could not have been more enjoyable. The entire staff from the owners and waiters to the Wranglers and cabin cleaners were friendly, and willing to do anything to make our stay enjoyable. The location was perfect for us being half way between Cody and Fishing bridge in Yellowstone. The scenery was spectacular being nestled along the North Fork Highway and the Shoshone River. The trout fishing in Gun Barrel Creek which ran right outside our cabin door was the best of my life. The property is well maintained, quiet, and clean. We went fishing, hiking, horseback riding, attended campfires and cookouts, ate in the restaurant and sat by the creek, ate a picnic lunch, read and relaxed, all without leaving the property. The lodge featured a comfortable seating area, minor souvenirs and postcards and a lounge area for kids to watch a video. We ate breakfast and dinner several times at the lodge and the food was very good, well prepared, attractive and generous. They do not serve alcohol but you can BYO. The cabins are old but clean and well maintained, The bed in cabin 5 was a king which was very nice. There was a heater for the chilly nights and we asked for and received a refrigerator and microwave. Our cabin was a "back to back double" but we never heard our neighbors. We had origonally tried to stay in Yellowstone but after seeing the crowds and experiencing the noise and hastle we were so happy we stayed here. If you want a relaxing, quiet, enjoyable place to stay while in the area, this is the place for you.

We spent 3 nights at the lodge, what a wonderful experience. The staff and owners were great and the breakfast ride so beautiful, breakfast was the best ever. If you have time make the trip and spend some time at the lodge. Cabins, creek and lodge make for a great vacation. Enjoy the quiet. Can't wait to return.
