Rare Solitude at the Lodges of East Yellowstone


Driving west through Cody, Wyo., en route to Yellowstone, you’ll find the area spectacularly scenic. It’s here you’ll find the Lodges of East Yellowstone.

President Theodore Roosevelt called the 50-mile stretch between Cody and Yellowstone National Park’s East Entrance the “50 most beautiful miles in America.”

If he visited today, he might add that it’s one of the most uncrowded experiences you can have so close to the park. Dotted with historic lodges like Elephant Head Lodge, which was opened by Buffalo Bill Cody’s niece in 1910 (while modernized over time, it still retains its original charm), you’re guaranteed an authentic experience.

“People are so surprised when they get here and they say, ‘We could’ve spent a couple more days here,’” says Betsy Christiansen whose Shoshone Lodge and Guest Ranch was built in the 1920s and has been run by four generations of her husband’s family. “It offers an uncrowded experience.”
