To Pick Up Pax
We didn't stay here, but after we left Old Faithful and stopped at the Kepler Cascades, we stopped here to pick up additional passengers for the Ring of Fire tour. I went in to look at the gift shop (photo 3) but didn't buy anything.
West Thumb is near here and that's about the only place that we did not see in the lower part of the park. On our way here, we were hearing about the forest and trees in the area and how the trees don't rot but just stay there where they fall.
Unique Quality: Just as at the Old Faithful Inn, this is a non-smoking establishment and televisions, radios, air conditioning, and Internet service is not available. This is at least partly a practical problem as the mountains make reception difficult. My grandson couldn't get cell phone reception very well and could not send photos from his phone. You should not expect luxury spa type accommodations anywhere in the park. This is just a step above camping in a tent and not as luxurious as an RV. Rooms do have a private bath.
*Standard Room $152.00
Lodging rates are per night, for up to 2 adults and do not include tax and utility fee.
Felt like a hotel, but amenities are nice. Big bed, and nice bathroom which is why it was more expensive. Grant Village is not the most exciting area either, unless you're in to boating and kayaking. It's on the lake.
Lodge in Yellowstone
This was O.K. accommodation, nothing special. The lodging complex includes 6 two-story buildings each containing 50 rooms. All rooms have private bathrooms. We found the walls to be thin, were woken up very early by just the neighbours talking normally.
Also located in the area are two restaurants with lake views (one full menu and one specializing in a pub-style menu including a selection of burgers, beef, bison, chicken and black bean). There is a lounge and a small gift store.
The accommodation was non-smoking. Internet hook-ups were not available.
In addition to Grant Village accommodation, you can also camp in this area of the park. I walked a few of the trails, one to the beautiful lake in the photo. The meal we had at the restaurant here was outstanding.
Unique Quality: Call Reservations office 1-866-GEYSERLAND (406-439-7375) or direct at 307-344-7311 for further information.
Directions: The village is situated on the southwestern shore of Yellowstone Lake, approximately 20 miles from Old Faithful, and is the nearest location to Grand Teton National Park.
Oh why, oh why don't I listen? Every guide book I read said that Grant Village accomodations were UGLY. They didn't mince words. Some of them went so far as to say they were hideous....And I booked us a room there ANYWAY. Silly me! I thought "oh how bad can they be?" Well they were pretty ugly. I really felt as if I was sent back in time to my college days. Plain, boring, beige and tan buildings on the outside. But it was the room that really gave it the title of "hideous". 80's style through and though! BAD art posters of some abstracts in pink and turquoise, white formica ect... ugh yicky. But it was a good location for us to rest our heads in between adventures. (Not at ALL honeymoon romantic though!)
Unique Quality: On the plus side, the dining rooms were nice. Log Cabin structures with lovely lake views. They have a post office, general store, boat rentals and a museum.
One of the ammenities I though was very cute, was the bear shaped soaps they gave us with our toiletries.
it's run by Xanterra (like most things in the park are save the general stores) You can make all "in park " hotel reservations, dinner reservations, and activity reservations with one phone call.
If You Wish to Make a Drive Into the Tetons
Grant Village is near the lovely, small West Thumb Geyser Basin. All though, still far away, this is the best accommodation if you are planning on driving to Grand Teton National Park for a day. Grant Village is made up of six, two story buildings. Each building has 50 rooms, with private baths. There is a lounge, gift shop, and an ATM. Be aware, however, that it would be a long drive to visit anything on the northern side of Yellowstone. I have not seen the rooms here, but the buildings are fairly new. This accommodation is usually open from early May to early October.
Unique Quality: This is a good location to enjoy views across Yellowstone Lake. There is a general store, visitor center, and gas station nearby. The Grant Village Dining room overlooks Yellowstone lake, and offers a buffet breakfast, lunches of sandwiches and salads, and a varied menu for dinner. Reservations are required for dinner.
Directions: This accommodation is located on the south side of the park’s main road, near the southwestern shore of Yellowstone Lake, and about 20 miles from Old Faithful.
