Yellowstone’s simplest lodging is also one of its coolest—a collection of tiny, ultra-rustic cabins, most of which are heated by woodstove (a few have electric heat). What the cabins lack in elbow room and modern hotel amenities they make up for in pioneer ambience, and you’re at Yellowstone—you’ll be outside all day, anyway. Frontier cabins have bathrooms, while Roughrider cabins share communal facilities with showers. Guests gather in the log-and-wicker rocking chairs on the main lodge’s front porch for sunrise and sunset views over the Lamar Valley. “Rosie” is a great spot for families, thanks to its access to horseback riding and stagecoach rides at the adjacent corral, and kiddos love the Old West Cookout ride (on horseback or wagon) to an alfresco cowboy-style dinner.
