Elephant Head Lodge Wapiti Reviews
Log Cabin in the Woods Sep 22, 2008
The Elephant Head Lodge is another of those “different” kinds of place to stay. It’s located just 11.7 miles outside the eastern edge of Yellowstone National Park, in an area called Wapiti. This small Three Diamond AAA rated log-cabin mountain resort lodge and most of the cabins are listed on the National Register of Historic Places. It gets its name from a rock formation overlooking it. Our stay was in a rather small, okay diminutive, cabin that was one room with a bathroom tucked away quietly in one corner. The door to the bathroom could not be opened completely with the queen sized bed in the room. The sink for the bathroom was actually in the room and the shower was most definitely a single person size. The window opened into the cabin and there was no screen so out in the forest where this was we closed it for the night to keep any little critters out. Our bed was good and we did enjoy staying there, smiling the whole time. We weren’t there long enough to enjoy the evening campfires, horseback riding or fishing nearby in the river. We did get to eat at the restaurant and gave them super high ratings on the food both for dinner (we had great steaks) and the large breakfast.

The restaurant at the Elephant Head Lodge certainly deserves a four star rating.
Remember, this place is miles and miles from Cody, the closest place to buy supplies. The prices were expected to be much higher than they were. And the quantity and quality did not suffer at all. The have a very good cook and the staff is helpful and enjoyable.
For dinner, we were served one of the best Filet Mignons my wife and I can remember and the rest of the meal was exceptional too.
For breakfast in the morning, the meal was just as tasty and good. We salute the owners for such great meals.
