“rustic and close to nature”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2013

"We had previously stayed in Old Faithful lodges and felt much happier here. Smaller cabins, but beautifully appointed, much more rustic and close to nature. A mule deer walked right past our cabin as we arrived! I didn't mind the communal bathrooms and showers, as they were regularly cleaned and kept tidy. It's very basic but I loved it.

Although you do have to wait for food in the restaurant when it arrived it was excellent. The servers are a little over worked so you don't always get the attention you should but if you have time it's worth it."

We loved our stay at the Roosevelt Lodge! We were lucky enough to get a cabin that had a bathroom. The cabin was small and cozy. They provide linens which was a plus because the cabin holds four and we are a party of five, so one lucky child slept on the floor. We requested extra linens to make it comfortable for him and he was fine. We were a little warm the first night and turned on the fan that they provide, but by the second night we eventually learned how to open the darn window and it provided a nice, cool breeze. Parking on the side of the cabin was a plus for loading and unloading the car. Coffee maker inside the cabin is a plus for us, too. They even provide body wash and shampoo and conditioner, which smell minty.

The area is very nice. We hiked up to Lost Lake which is directly behind the cabin grounds. It was beautiful! We also did the chuckwagon bbq. If you can get a reservation, get one! It was a nice experience and the food was actually good. The kids were excited to try "Cowboy Coffee," which was entertaining to watch them try. We were schedule for horseback riding, too, but the weather stopped us about 20 minutes into our ride and we had to head back. Unfortunately we couldn't reschedule because that was our last day at the Lodge and the rest of the rides were cancelled that day, too.

We never dined in the Lodge, but we did have our night caps of brownie sundaes and wine for the evening. The kids really enjoyed this part of the evening. The gift shop is small but have just about all the essentials you're looking for.

From the Lodge, we headed into Lamar Valley a couple of times. Instead of paying $80pp for the wildlife tour bus that leaves that Lodge at 8am, we decided we were getting up early and heading out. We woke up at 7:00ish, told the kids to get in the car in their pajamas and hit the road by 7:45 for wildlife viewing. Luckily we did because we saw so many animals and lots of bears! We headed out of the park for breakfast into Silver Gate and were lucky to see bison in the front yards of houses. On our way back into the park and heading to the Lodge, there were a ton of cars and people outside the Lodge entrance and that only means one thing...animal sighting! We crossed the four-way stop into the Lodge and asked the ranger what was going on. Bear sighting right there, roaming around in the grassy brush! We couldn't believe how close it was just roaming around and all the flashes going off! We were enjoying the view from our car, I just couldn't imagine being so close to where all the people were gathered. It was a great way to end our animal watching that morning.

We loved our stay at the Lodge and would definitely go back if we were in the area. It took us months to get a 2-night stay in a cabin with a bathroom. Once we got those reservations, we planned our trip around it because we weren't going to be able to change those days easily.

We loved the area, the lodge, and the staff. We stayed in a Roughrider cabin, which means we had to share a common bathroom/shower space. The bathrooms were not kept up, the showers were disgusting, and the toilets were overflowing. This happened in the lower level area. We found ourselves walking to the larger bathroom because it was cleaner and more spacious. The cabin was small and got very cold in the evenings, even with the stove going. The cabins were not very soundproof, so we hear everything going on. Honestly, we loved the area, but could not wait to move on to our next place!.

Room Tip: Reserve a fontier cabin if you can.

My wife and I stayed in Frontier cabin # 85 for two nights. The cabin is standalone, so no neighbors. The cabin has two comfortable double beds and bathroom with a shower. There was a night table with an alarm clock between the bed. Dispensers of liquid soap, shampoo, and conditioners were provided in the tub/shower and soap and moisturizer at the sink. There is no A/C. When we were there in mid-June, it was cool in the evenings. There is no radio or TV, but who needs it with Lamar Valley and Tower Fall nearby. The cabin was heated by a propane heater which had a digital display of the set and room temperature. When needed, the heater quickly warmed the cabin. We found the cabin to be well insulated, so the heater was seldom needed.
The cabin appeared to be recently remodeled . The cabin is well maintained. Maybe we were lucky, but we kept breakfast bars and apples out in the open in the cabin and did not have any problems with mice. The water pressure is good. The cabin has its own water heater. We had to allow time for the heater to recover between showers
At night, the area is generally quiet. The cabins are closely spaced, so you will hear people leaving in the dawn hours. This is an ideal area for traveling to Lamar Valley or Tower Fall; both are in close proximity. There is a stream running on the west edge of the property. This area will be generally more active than most Yellowstone cabin areas. Most families are using the grills to cook meals. With the old West feel and activities such as the Cowboy cookout, families with young children will love this area. This is the place to stay if you plan dawn or dusk trips to the Lamar valley.

Spent two nights in cabin D60 and it was outstanding. The room came with two beds but no bathroom or shower. That was not a problem for us. The room came with a little stove and was supplied with wood. If not having a cell connection or tv isn't for you then don't come here. This place has a great porch on the front of the registration building that is very relaxing. Just minutes from the Lamar valley and tons of animals. We will return to this place!

After the hustle and bustle of the geyser basin areas of Yellowstone, we LOVE coming to Roosevelt Lodge cabins and enjoying the peace and quiet in this area of the park, and being close to Lamar Valley for dawn and dusk wildlife watching. This is the second time that we've stayed here- the first time we had a cabin with a bath, this time we did not, so had to use the community bathhouse. We didn't find that a big deal as we are a camping family, but certainly understand that can be an issue for some. And the bathroom does get a bit messy by the end of the night. We think the cabins are wonderful; clean, simple and just delightfully rustic, and you can NOT beat the price for staying inside the park!! The up side of not having an attached bathroom was that our cabin was very spacious - plenty of room for two double beds (comfortable!), small side tables, writing desks and the standard wood stove. We were three people this time, but plenty roomy had we been four people. All the windows open which made for great ventilation. The cabin was cool in the morning, but we didn't bother with a fire - those supplies were well stocked and with clear instructions for use. The area is quiet at night which made for great sleeping (not what we experienced in other hotels in the park!) with a real feel of community, kids playing and folks sitting out. There also is easy access to hiking trails behind the Lodge, you quickly feel that you are out in the wilds of Yellowstone in just a few minutes. The Lodge is wonderful too - we love the decor and the history of the place, as well as the great food we had there at dinners, the corn muffins were exceptionally good this year. The staff were friendly and upbeat, and seemed to be very happy to have you there. So if you like rustic, cozy, and charming, no TV and no wifi, wildlife and hiking close by, book yourself a cabin at Roosevelt! Remember to take some time to enjoy rocking on the Lodge porch - maybe watching a thunderstorm roll in before you go in to have a great dinner!

We only had two days in Yellowstone and at the last minute got lucky to find a rough rider cabin on short notice. If possible definitely stay inside the park somewhere since most cities are over an hour outside the park! The cabins were clean and well stocked with towels. Our cabin did not have a bathroom, but we were very close to the bathhouse. We were not great at keeping a fire going throughout the night so we did get COLD, but it did warm up pretty quickly once we did start it. All the supplies are there for you. The Lodge is very cozy and the restaurant was very good for dinner. We didn't see any wildlife around the cabins but we did see a lot in the park. Overall a very good, rustic and different way to stay inside the park.
