Pahaska Teepee Resort once served as Buffalo Bill’s hunting lodge—how’s that for some history? The hotel is situated at the eastern gateway to Yellowstone National Park, and offers simple, cozy cabins, some with kitchens. Horseback riding and hiking can be enjoyed right from the resort, and there’s also a restaurant onsite.

We stayed here October 1, had reserved two nights but due to unplanned snow, we were able to cancel our second night. The East entrance was closed for 6+ hours with more snow predicted. They were so accommodating and nice, understanding we may not be able to get back for our second night. We enjoyed dinner, breakfast and lunch, tasty food and nice staff (one waitress was not) however the rest made up for her. The quaint cabins don’t have much, but they’re warm, a decent bed and hot shower and amazing beauty right outside the door. They were in constant communication with the rangers at the gate and immediately announced when the entrance opened. A wonderful piece of history to enjoy!!
We left Yellowstone NP through the East Gate on our way to Cody and Sheridan. A couple of miles out we made a pit stop here at Pahaska Teepee due to its historic significance......”Buffalo Bill” Cody’s original hunting lodge. It is on the National Historic Register.
It is a little complex that seems to have everything...... gas, food, lodging, groceries, a lounge, trail rides, and surprise.... a gift shop! There is an antique bar from 1872 and an original mirror. Worth a brief stop even if for nothing else.
