Viewing this place was one of our favorite parts of Yellowstone. It is historical and absolutely breathtaking. If you are in the Yellowstone vicinity, this is definitely a must-see. You will be inspired and amazed at this beautiful Inn. There is a restaurant and coffee shop but we did not use either. There was a musician there playing the violin... More

It is a beautiful old wood building. You can have a decent meal inside and ice cream as well. :-) There is also a big gift store in the building.

First went out and watched Old Faithful do its thing and then went inside and visited the hotel! Huge fireplace and 7 stories high. Even the ladies room was nice

When you go in the entrance you are in ore of the size of the place as the interior is empty and you can see the roof 3 floors up. Go up to the second floor and you can grab a drink and sit outside on a large balcony and watch the Old Faithful Geyser explode in front of you... More

If you like history and rustic architecture you'll love this place. I enjoyed sitting in the lobby and viewing the historic beauty sipping a cocktail. They keep a clock of when old faithful is going to erupt and it's close enough to see from the inn's balcony. You are also near trails where you can see many other fascinating geysers.... More

We arrived as a family of 9 with 3 generations. The lodge was amazing. Wish I had more time to just explore the building. I heard they where working on the Crow's Nest and I was hoping to get up there. Alas, it was still closed. Everywhere you look it was unique. Can't wait to go back!

This gigantic wood structure is amazing as its entire frame is built on the original pine wood (since pine is the most abundant in Yellowstone, I guess it is all pine). The Old Faithful fountain is right in front of my hotel room window without any tree interference - pure luck.

This place is very cool. It's crowded. Old Faithful and the other geysers are right outside the door. The lobby is wooden and amazing. There are stairs going to a little room at the top. No idea why. But it looks really cool. I think anyone would find it amazing.

OF Inn is the largest log structure in the world. It was built in 1904 and still has many of the original rooms and features. The free tour of the inn is fascinating and definitely worth taking - no reservations needed. The ambience of the inn is incredible, especially in the evening after the day trippers have left. Starting every... More
