Lake Lodge Cabins
Travel Blogs from Yellowstone National Park
Strahlender Sonnenschein - danke Petrus! Über die Mammoth Hot Springs, die Tower Fall etc. fahren wir durch den nordöstlichen Teil des Parks und schliessen mit den Norris Geyser und dem Monument Geyser Basin den oberen Teil der "8" ab. Rahel ist noch immer begeistert von jedem Geysir, während bei mir der Sättigungsgrad nahezu erreicht ist. In der …
Today unfortunately ended up being somewhat disappointing as Wyoming decided to open its skies and send a downpour for our drive to Grand Teton National Park. All the excellent pictures I'd seen previously on the Internet of this place were sadly only a mere shadow today. Undeterred, we packed up the car and headed north. When we …
We did get up early and left almost as planned. Yellowstone was beautiful as ever and early morning it looked even more serene. Smoke coming out of thermal pits, wildlife and untouched wilderness, totally fantastic.
We were out of the park in about an hour. We stopped for breakfast just outside of the park in a town called Bozeman, then …
Well begun is half done! We woke up early, grabbed a quick bite and as per plan reached the dock, to try some boating in the spectacular lake. We had tried it the day before and failed since the rental closed early for off-season. Eager for anything to do with water I got out of the car and hit a low lying branch hard with my head. And guess which …
We hit the road running, in every sense of the word. We entered the park around 1 pm and started the sightseeing right away. Mammoth springs were the first to come our way. We had entered the park only 10 minutes ago when Vikram's GPS indicated proximity to something worth watching. And that was our first smell of hydrogen di-sulphide and our first …

Historical Traveler Reviews Lake Lodge Cabins Yellowstone National Park
The cabins here were the only accommodations available for a last minute change in our vacation. We planned to stay only one night at Grant Village, but the construction of the East Entrance changed our mind on driving back and forth. We like nice accommodations and were a little concerned about the cabins. When we arrived after a long day of exploring we were pleasently surprised that they were clean, renovated and quiet. Two rooms created one cabin and shared the bathroom wall so that all you heard was maybe running water. The bathroom was renovated and clean as were the towels and sheets. Small but comfortable enough and the main hotel was only a short walk away. Make sure to get dinner reservations early or else plan on eating in a diner type or cafeteria. The negetives were that the carpet was dirty, very dark and muddy outside, and probably a little small for more than 2 people.
One row of cabins had been painted and stood out from the others as we drove up. The inside was renovated with a raised beamed ceiling and a new bathroom. Walls were also updated. It was a cozy place to stay . We had reserved in Feb but didn't know some had been renovated. You might want to request a renovated cabin.
Great view and lounge
We did not stay in this hotel (we stayed at Grant Village), but we immensly
enjoyed spending the evenings here. After a long day driving around the
park, we'd come here to order a drink from the bar and stretch our
legs on the front porch and sip our drink while sitting on rustic rocking
chairs and watching the sun go down on the lake while wild bisons
lazily grazed ahead of us. Nothing to beat that view ! Later as it grew
cooler, we'd go into the lobby/lounge and laze around in front of the
fireplace before retiring to our hotel at 10.
The "western cabin" at the Lake Lodge is a bad place to stay. It's pretty expensive and it's not worth it. The staff was friendly but incompetent. Better stay in West Yellowstone or one of the hotels.
Fair Place for the Price
For $62 per night, I did not expect much. These are old cabins - three building together. I believe they were built in the 1930's. I stayed in one with a single double bed. The bathroom was very small with even a smaller shower. The lodge itself, a short walk away serves all meals, has a bar and is a nice place to see in the evening. You cabin will not have a phone or TV by the way. For about 30 - 40 more, you could stay at the Yellowstone Lake Hotel which is close-by.
For $62 per night the Lake Lodge cabins was a good value though.
Lake Lodge cabins-we know why they were inexpensive!
The Lake Lodge cabins were very inexpensive and one can see why. The cabins were in strips of three and each had no porch or outside space of it's own. The room was clean and did have it's own restroom with shower but it felt clausterphobic at times. One redeeming feature was a table with chairs in the room. On the Saturday night we were there, the parking lot and grounds were deserted and almost felt desolate but we did have the opportunity to have deer right up near our parking space. Would most likely not go back.
I am compelled to write this review. We thought they might be bad from the reviews but we were willing to give it a shot for 90.00/night and little else to choose from in the park on a Saturday night. Don't even consider it. These "cabins" are nothing more than what we Southerners would consider a "trailer park" atmosphere. The inside had old broken furniture, faded corny fishing bedspread, and a water heater 3" from the toilet. It was a DUMP! My husband and I decided to spend $180.00 instead to stay in the Lake Hotel so we didn't ruin a beautiful trip.
Xanterra needs to bulldoze these and start over and quit extorting money from unsuspecting tourists on a budget. If you don't have the money to stay someplace else buy a tent or sleep in your car!
Loved the cabins at Lake Lodge!
What do they expect for an unbelievable price???? Everything in the Park was beyond reasonable. We thought they were adorable! We wanted something a little rustic, above camping out, but not like a Hotel in a city! After all, we came to see nature!
AND NO TV'S PLEASE!!!!!!
Lake Lodge Cabins - an experience to skip
The "cabin" at the Lake Lodge was no more than a run down motel room - very disappointing. Just a few days before we stayed at the Lake Jackson Lodge in the Grand Tetons in one of their "cabins" - a world of difference (and also a slightly higher price). The Lake Lodge is in bad need of some updating and cleaning of its cabins.
I felt the rooms were comfortable but they had old fixtures, ugly burnt orange colored doors and really overpriced for what we got. We paid $124.00 for an average to below average room.
