Favorite Cabin in Yellowstone
The lake lodge cabins are rustic but were well equipped with all of the amenities. The lodge staff was helpful! Our room was clean and in a good location in the park. The Lodge has food options and a general store nearby. Out of the other cabin lodging options in the park this became our favorite!

Perfect location for us
The cabin was spacious enough for our family of 4, and not too rustic. We also got one far enough away from the lodge so there was minimal noise. Cabin was clean and beds were comfy. We were exploring and driving the park every day so we didn’t spend too much time in the cabins.

Western cabins are adequate...and not much more
We stayed in the “A” western cabins the first night they were open and were grateful to find a place in the park with lodging. The cabin room was clean and a bit on the small side. My rating is based on the AAA scale and methodology. There were two queen beds, a table, and a coat rack. The shower was small but was small. The queen beds include a sheet and very thin blanket. We were initially concerned but there is a space heater in the corner that we turned on before going to bed for 20 minutes and again in the morning to handle the chill. It was 34 degrees outside and the walls are only plywood.
Check-in took 10 minutes when I finally made it to the counter. You can tell that this is a seasonal staff doing their best but they need a lot of practice to make this an efficient process. The cafeteria is takeout only and there are no places to “hang out” in the lobby and porch that remains under construction. The cafeteria staff was extremely friendly and helpful.
The next time we come to Yellowstone we will stay off property. The $270/night rate is 3x the value we received. It was serviceable but would be our 5th choice in the future. The towns of Gardner and West Yellowstone have plenty of lower cost options with more dining options and in 2020, traffic in the park is very limited so getting around does not take much time.

Love the antiquity
The cabin we stayed in was 100 years old! I was a little skeptical when my husband booked especially because there was no A/C. There is no need for A/C as it gets FREEZING at night. The cabin was small and just about enough room for 2 ppl and luggage. We stayed there for 2 nights. The lodge is the hanging out place as there is no room in the cabins to just chill. The lodge had suuuuper slooow WIFI. It was a nice lodge. Everything is made out of wood. I enjoyed staying there. There were Elk at dusk right across the street! We got beautiful pictures.

OK but there seems to be a rodent infestation.
We stayed in one of the "Western cabins" which are nearly identical to those in Canyon lodge. The are quiet enough but some weather stripping at the bottom of the door was either chewed or damaged and just after we closed the door it had no trouble running under the door. Another person also told me of similar experiences in one of the new lodges there.
I put a face rag soaked with soap and water and crammed it into the hole when we closed the door. None of the mice we saw the next day were foaming at the mouth.
