The cluster of cabins east of the geyser basin are typical Yellowstone fare: basic furniture accentuated with pine cones, plaid blankets, tiny bathrooms or shared bathhouse space. But the location elevates these bargain cabins to the next level. They’re tucked away in a young lodgepole pine forest and offer a surprisingly peaceful escape from the madness around Old Faithful, just steps away. Some even have views of the famous spouter, but my money is on the cabins that border a back meadow with a stream and several small, unnamed thermal features, where guests often spot bears passing through. The main lodge houses a cafeteria, bakery/ice cream shop, and gift shop, plus a cozy lobby with a huge window framing Old Faithful.
