Jim Bridger Explorer Cabins

The comforts of home. The perks of a hotel. All at the doorstep of the North Entrance to America's first National Park.


The Jim Bridger Explorer Cabins combine the charm of cabin lodging (we call it CABINEERING™) with the joys of generational travel. The Jim Bridger Explorer Cabins are perfect for family and friends traveling together, romantic getaways, multi-generational gatherings and solo travelers who want a little space to move around. Each private cabin boasts a beautiful, raised balcony, stylish décor, fine linens, a flat-screen TV and a kitchenette for cooking up your favorite meals. Wi-Fi is available in the cabins and throughout the property, and our on-site restaurant The Yellowstone Mine is available if you don’t feel like doing your own cooking. When you arrive, you’ll get a genuine Yellowstone welcome in the form of a complimentary s’mores kit to enjoy by our community fire pit on a beautiful Montana evening.
