Elkhorn Quarters

The spirit of Teddy Roosevelt's Elkhorn Ranch

Touches of the Maltese Cross and Elkhorn brands adorn your room in homage to Medora’s most famous resident, Theodore Roosevelt! The rooms are clean with a touch of Medora Western charm.

Your room is as close as you can get to a Maah Daah Hey Trailhead or Bully Pulpit Golf Course — while still having all the creature comforts of staying in Medora.

PLUS: If you book a family room, you can rest assured that the kids will love the bunk beds, and mom and dad will enjoy the added space.

Theodore Roosevelt National Park


When Theodore Roosevelt came to Dakota Territory to hunt bison in 1883, he was a skinny, young, spectacled dude from New York. He could not have imagined how his adventure in this remote and unfamiliar place would forever alter the course of the nation.
