  • Lake Lodge Cabins


    On September 15th my wife and I celebrated our wedding day at Blue Water Manor, In the Adorondack Mountains - Lake George New York.
    The honeymoon was to drive from New York to California, taking our time and seeing the sites, with our dog, Babygirl. We planed a two night stay at The Lake Lodge in Yellowstone National Park on September 26th and 27th.

    During the drive we started to read the reviews of Lake Lodge. Things were a bit hectic to research it beforehand, with the wedding planing and all.

    Seeing that many of the reviews were negative, needless to say we began to feel a little apprehensive.

    I am happy to say that we were pleasantly surprised. The cabin was clean and charming, keeping with the rustic feel and the ambiance one would expect for Yellwstone. The customer service was good, as well as the food. The main lodge had a pleasant atmosphere, with a fireplace by the bar and a nice giftshop. Next to the bar was the dining area, where the line splits between a carving station, and a separate hot food station.

    As with most visitors, we spent most of our time outside the resort, taking in the many sites that Yellowstone has to offer, however returning to the Lodge was good experience, and we would definitely recommend it to our friends and anyone planing a visit to Yellowstone.

    That being said, from what we understand, there are constructions underway at the lodging, and that we stayed at one of the newer model of cabins. While walking around the property we could see that a lot of the other cabins looked older. Though we didn't see how the older cabins were, I can't imagine they were that bad. I'm sure in time all the old cabins will be replaced with the newer models. We stayed at the back of the resort, the Western Cabins to be specific, since we had our dog with us, so it was either a long walk or short drive to the main cabin, but we didn't mind.

    If I were to give some constructive criticism to the Managers : try to mix up the food selection a bit, hire local cooks who can offer their signature dishes.

    Plain, But Comfortable Cabins


    Lake Lodge Cabins are located near Yellowstone Lake. The Lodge itself has a porch with rocking chairs, where you may sit and enjoy the view across the lake to the mountain beyond. Walk inside and you will find a cozy log interior, with two fireplaces, and comfortable chairs to relax in. The cafeteria will not only allow you to eat in the dining area, but will also prepare items to take with you as you head out to explore. There are three styles of cabins, to choose from, each have private baths, and are grouped near the lodge. The most modern ones are similar to a motel style, with 4 to 6 accommodations in each unit.

    Don't forget to make your reservations as far ahead of time as you can.

    Unique Quality: Within the Lodge you will find a lobby bar, gift shop, public laundry, and an information desk. A general store, medical service, and gas station are located nearby on the lake.

    Directions: Located along Yellowstone lake, the GPS Coordinates are N 44 33.300 W 110 23.729

    Sweat box


    My wife and I stayed in one of the frontier cabins for a couple of nights. They are advertised as rustic and cozy. Which sounded nice for a nature type ÔÇťadventure." Well, where do I begin? First of all, we get there at 3:30pm and they tell us that our room is not quite ready yet, and they told us to come back later in the afternoon between 5-6pm! When we returned and we got our key, we drove up to our cabin and another couple was unloading their bags into it. They had sent us to the wrong room. Then we checked into dinner possibilities. The choice is the Yellowstone Lake hotel or the cafeteria at the lodge. We inquired into the Yellowstone Lake hotel and we needed reservations. There were none available for that night but they could squeeze us in at 9:30pm the following night. So we ate at the cafeteria and $40 later had a bad to mediocre meal. The following night we went to the Lake Hotel at 9:30pm sharp for our dinner reservation. They could not find the reservation, however they were able to squeeze us into the restaurant anyway because it was about 3/4's empty. I guess we did not need that reservation after all. On a positive: the service and food at the Yellowstone Lake Hotel was excellent but not really for kids. I had elk medallions and lobster and my wife had pasta with wild smoked salmon, both were delicious. The service was prompt without being intrusive
    About the cabin. To say it was cozy is like when a doctor says you may feel a little pain. There were tiny rooms. They were just big enough for a full size bed and a couple of feet of space all of the way around. The water heater is out in the open and right next to the bed as is the bathroom sink. I walked into both whenever I had to go to the bathroom at night. The condition of the cabins is horrible, The wood is decomposing and the whole building seems to be falling apart. The whole place should be leveled and rebuilt!

    Mammoth Hot Springs Cabins


    These cabins are a great place to stay while visiting long as you know what to expect. First of all, there are no Phones or TV's. But most of the lodgings inside the park don't have them either, so it's not a big deal. Second, there's no air conditioning. Most of the time it's not necessary anyway, since Mammoth is at an elevation of 6200 feet. Even on warm summer days, the nights cool off comfortably. Third, even though these are cabins, they aren't exactly rural and out in the wilderness. The cabins are located directly behind the Mammoth Hot Springs Hotel and are clustered closely together. In fact, many of them are "duplex" cabins. Most of the units are right on the road that loops through the complex, and parking is very unorganized.

    But that said, if you are OK with these things, I highly recommend staying here. The cabins themselves are comfortable and decent sized. They all have a front porch with 2 chairs. Most have private baths, but be aware that some do not, and use a separate building. The best thing about these cabins, however is that they are located at Mammoth. I think Mammoth is the nicest part of the park. It's not nearly as hectic as the Old Faithful area. There are a lot of things within an easy walk...Fort Yellowstone and the Hot Springs for example. Plus, the lawns and grassy areas are the best place in the park to regularly see wildlife. We spent 4 nights at these cabins, and saw Elk grazing in various locations around the village every day.

    One other advantage to Mammoth is that it is only 5 miles from Gardiner, if you need to get groceries, or want a nice selection of restaurants. So, overall, as long as you're aware of the limitations, these cabins are a fine base for exploring Yellowstone.

    Unique Quality: Nice comfortable cabins...great Mammoth Hot Springs location

by Krumel

This was my favourite accommodation in Yellowstone, mainly because of its quiet and peaceful lakeside location. The cabins didn't look like much from the outside, and they didn't have a porch like the ones at Mammoth Hot Springs, but they were very cute, and it even was ensuite!

The lobby in the main house looked lovely and had a comfy fireplace where you can settle down with a book in one of the armchairs. Or sit outside on the terrace and enjoy a lovely view over the lake and the mountains on the other side - which by the way were snow-covered when I got up in the morning. In mid-August!!!

The restaurant was very busy in the evening though, and I had to queue for quite some time for my dinner.
