Bring Your ATV's
What Mallie and Zig likes about living here is
the outdoors, they both love to fish and you will
probably find them out catching their dinner during your stay! They have
hiking, ATVing, snowmobiling, kayaking, cross country skiing, four
wheeling, mountain biking and the
best hunting in the state
right out their front door! What more could you ask for?
you can listen to the river run all
night as it puts you to sleep, in the morning you can sit on the
covered porch with your morning coffee and enjoy an amazing private view
of the Clarks Fork River. It doesn't get any better
than this! Just ask the
Mc Neese's from Iowa,
they come back every year!
Beartooth Lodge is nestled in a valley surrounded by National
Forest with only the Chief Joseph Scenic Hwy running through it
(Wyoming Hwy 296). Five miles to the north you intersect with the
Beartooth Highway All
American Road, Hwy 212. The Beartooth
Mountains are known as the Fly Fishing Capital of the World and Beartooth
Lodge is at its doorstep! We have guest that come back every year just to
fish the many lakes and rivers in the Beartooths.
Beartooth Lodge borders
the Clark's Fork of the Yellowstone River that is one of the few
rivers in the US designated as a Wild and Scenic River surrounded by
pristine wilderness areas. Both the Clarks Fork of the Yellowstone and
Crandall Creek (on our southeast border) are outstanding blue ribbon
trout fishing streams!
Main Attraction is Yellowstone National Park
We are located just 22
miles from the Silver Gate Entrance of
Yellowstone National Park (also known as the
northeast entrance!) We like this entrance because it is the best access
to our favorite part of Yellowstone and that is the Lamar Valley. The Lamar River is located in the Lamar Valley and is a tributary of the
Yellowstone River, approximately 40 miles long, in northwestern Wyoming.
The river is located entirely within Yellowstone National Park and is a
popular destination for fly fishermen, and is widely known as one of the
best places in the park to view wildlife, especially buffalo, elk, deer,
grizzly bears and wolves.
Our favorite time of year
to go into Yellowstone National Park is in September. We like taking the
drive through the Lamar Valley to Mammoth Hot Springs. This time of year
the aspen trees are starting to turn a beautiful golden color and the
elk have started into mating season! We enjoy watching the bull elk
bugle and fighting to gain dominance of a herd. It is something to see!
We have people from all
over the world come and stay with us to see Yellowstone and the
Beartooth Mountains, most of them say that a week stay just isnít long
enough, that they wished they would have planned for more days to be
able to see everything there is to see in the area, so donít cut
yourself short! Here are some nice pictures taken of
Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Park. You
will see why we love living here and why our guest keep coming back!

Our Maps we are close to the
Montana, Wyoming border. Cooke City Montana is the closest town to us (20
miles) and they have a lot to offer. We go to the Miners Saloon when we are
hungry for Pizza.
As you can also see we are about the same distance from Cody, Wyoming as
we are from Red Lodge, Montana. We alternate between the two of them
when we need to go to town for supplies! Either way we go it is a
beautiful drive. If you go to Cody, take the Chief Joseph Scenic Hwy.
through Sunlight Basin and then up over Dead Indian Pass. As you know Cody was Buffalo Bills
home town in the Rockies! While you are in his home town a must see is
the Museum named after him! Check it out.
Another thing to do while you are here is check out Red Lodge, Montana.
It is a beautiful Ski town at the base of the Beartooth Mountains. Our
favorite reason for going to Red Lodge to shop is the drive over
Beartooth Pass to get there.
