Staying Outside Yellowstone
With Yellowstone reservations unavailable and wishing to avoid the noise of staying just outside park boundaries, we chose these luxurious cabins 25 miles outside West Yellowstone.
They are log cabins ranging from 1-4 bedrooms set in a pine forest complete with hot tubs on the deck and satellite TV. The Pines also has a restaurant and bar.
If you want a little peace and don't mind a short drive these cabins and I imagine other properties in Island Park offer an alternative to staying in West Yellowstone.
The cabins are fully equipped, new and comfortable. Granite countertops in the kitchen. Multiple gas fireplaces in the larger units.
We recommend The Pines, but with one caveat---the one bedroom units are not nearly as private as the others. They overlook a junky parking lot, the private hot tub decks can be seen by the other two one bedroom units and they are near the noisy restaurant kitchen. Fortunately, the gracious management was willing and able to change our accomodation.
We enjoyed our stay.More
