Welcome, bikers! The Elk Horn is a bicyclist-friendly lodge as these folks discovered.

I (and my 2 buds) stayed at the Elk Horn Lodge last January for a couple nights. Great place for a decent price! Great snowmobiling!

Suzy was right to suggest this lovely cabin amidst such beauty for a reunion of two friends whom haven't seen each other for 40 years. They reconnected while hiking in Yellowstone and sharing stories and wine in their cozy cabin. SUPERB!

Not yet over the hill ... still pedaling.

Suzy and Jason, your warmth and friendliness make our stay at the Elk Horn a home away from home. We look forward to returning to Cooke City and The Elk Horn.

Our stay at the Elkhorn lodge was the best vacation ever! Fabulous scenery, great people in town, and plenty of wildlife to admire. Jason and Suzanne offer genuine Western hospitality and sweet Southern charm at their friendly and cozy lodge. If you are heading through Cooke City, stay and play there at the Elk Horn. You'll love it.
Sara and Tom Marino
Went to Cooke City for the Sweet Corn Fest and had a great time! The snow was fabulous and Jason and Suzy were awesome hosts, as usual. The
rooms at the Elkhorn are spacious and always very clean, plus it's the friendliest place in town! Thanks for another fun visit to Cooke. See you next time.
It was great seeing you both and thanks for all the hospitality. I'll look forward to seeing you next July.
Jim and the gang
Hope you and the family are enjoying good health and getting ready for some great holidays. See you in July.

Jason and Suzy, what else can I say ... you guys are awesome!! I can't think of a better place to go and hide for a weekend of fun than at the Elkhorn! It's like going to see family and when you get that from your lodging you know that you've found a gem. It's the one time a year that we are able to let loose and have a great time. We look forward to seeing you again in 2008. Save the rooms for us! Thanks for everything! From all of your friends and Big Sky Brewing Company.

Cooke City will always hold a special place in our hearts. From the friendly people to the picture perfect town to the beautiful mountains, we will always make Cooke City a yearly vacation destination. And we'll always stay at the Elk Horn Lodge. The Ohlingers make their guests feel at home. The accommodations are clean and cozy with spectacular views. It is a place to get away from the hustle and bustle and relax, play in the outdoors, watch wildlife, and enjoy the view!
