Home Cooking

Located just north of Yellowstone's Lamar Valley, we serve savory home cooking for Yellowstone explorers. Simple, nutrient-dense meals are magical in our historic log dining room. 

Built by a single woman during the Great Depression, currently owned by a Silvergate native, the Log Cabin Cafe is a regional icon of stability.  We are an anchor of timelessness where troubles fade.


Travel in time to simple days past by staying in our comfortable historic cabins. Live simply in our tiny eco house rental. All rentals available nightly, weekly or monthly at a discount.


Menu features pancakes of the 1930s and the best grilled trout on the planet. Plus homemade desserts and espresso at Lolo's Lolly Pop Shop. Our sustainable and local sourcing rises to the hope of national parks to preserve nature for future generations.

New Construction in 2019

“When despair for the world grows in me

and I wake in the night at the least sound

in fear of what my life and my children’s lives may be,

I go and lie down where the wood drake rests in his beauty on the water, and the great heron feeds.

I come into the peace of wild things ...” Wendell Berry
