We are located in beautiful Silver Gate, Montana, just one mile from the Yellowstone Park Northeast entrance, with Amphitheater Mountain, (pictured above), in our back yard.  The address is 108 US Highway 212 West, the beginning of the spectacular Beartooth Scenic Highway.  Our phone is 406-838-2130.  We are open all year long.  In the winter months we are open from 9 am to 5 pm, every day, except on Tuesdays.  The store itself is located in front of an original log cabin that has been restored.  In the cooler, off-season months, the first thing you will notice when you walk in the door, is the warm and inviting wood stove.  You will find at least a couple pots of hot soup or chili going, which can be served in a fresh bread bowl, a vast collection of gourmet coffees, to choose from, along with cappuccino, espresso, latte, hot chocolate and wonderful teas. 

In the summer months, we are open from 7 am to at least 9 pm... sometimes, later.  We sell all sorts of unique Montana-made gifts, art, crafts, daily necessities, groceries, bear spray, walking sticks, post cards, home-made candles and soaps, T-shirts, hats, jewelry, home-made brownies, cookies and muffins, beer, wine, soda, snacks, vintage Yellowstone collectibles, hand dipped ice cream cones, ice cream bars, Huckleberry, Orange Cream and Root Beer floats, candy, new and used books, maps, campfire wood, warm mittens, winter hats, scrap book materials, fishing flies and supplies, fly rods, fishing licenses, GaperGuides and so much more.  Plus, there are many days during the summer, that we have our Mesquite charcoal grill fired up and cook some of the best Black Angus hamburgers, Nathan's Famous all beef hot dogs and Montana Redneck polish sausages, at affordable prices.  How about a fresh deli sandwich?  We can even make you a brown-bag lunch, so you can take your lunch into the park.  Certain summer nights, you might even find a cozy campfire going out front, where you can sit around and share your Yellowstone daily adventures, with new friends.  Please stop in and say hello! 

If you are looking for a unique place to stay while here, check out the Wolf Den, our beautiful, cozy log cabin suite, located behind the store.  Call us for more details, price quotes or to make reservations.  406-838-2130
