The Range Rider's Lodge is located in Silver Gate, MT just one mile outside Yellowstone's Northeastern Gate. Opened in 1938, this historic building was originally an “indoor playground” for drinking, gambling, and prostitution. Today, it's more tame with a dozen rooms for rent and a low-key bar open from 6-10pm. It's a stunningly beautiful, rustic lodging option for people who don't mind communal bathrooms and creaky floors.

Room #23 has a double bed and sleeps two people.

The space
Your Space: Room #23 has a double bed, comfortably sleeping two people (if you'd like the same sort of room, with a balcony looking out at the iconic Amphitheater Mountain, check out Rooms 9 through 14).

The Lodge: In 1938, the Range Rider's Lodge opened. Originally named the Gorham Chalet, it was used less for lodging and more as an “indoor playground” for drinking, gambling, and prostitution. In those early days, Ernest Hemingway frequented our bar on Saturday nights as (he spent a couple summers living and writing on a nearby ranch, we actually have a small Hemingway museum dedicated to his time in the area).

Since it's opening, the Range Rider has seen some wild times, passed through many owners, different phases, and enlivened our small mountain community. No longer the “indoor playground” of the late 30's and 40's, today the Range Rider is a bit tamer. With a low-key beer and wine bar open for a few hours each night and lodging as close as you can stay to the wildlife of Lamar Valley in Yellowstone, the lodge has taken on a bit of a new persona recently. Yet, the Range Rider still maintains all the character and architectural beauty it has all these years.

While the phenomenal woodwork and remarkable history of the building can be appreciated by anyone, the Range Rider was built in another era and we won't try to convince you it's luxurious lodging. It's a rustic lodging option for people who seek unique experience and don't mind communal bathrooms, creaky floors, and thin walls. For people who prefer novelty and rich character over the sterile comfort of a hotel chain.
