This accommodation was a bit of a distress booking, having arrived south of Yellowstone and having to drive further than we liked when our first option of location was fully booked - the whole town !!
For that reason, we went for a higher budget than we would have liked - but what a find! It was overkill for just two people - better suited to a family.
The cabin is not in the middle of the forest - it overlooks hotels - but there is was an attractive cluster around a communal fire pit which was lit each day around 6 so that we could bake our s'mores each evening and maybe meet with some of our fellow travellers. The ingredients for s'more were provided daily - a nice touch.
The cabin facilities were good - a well equipped kitchenette, including a good coffee maker ofcourse, two comfy queen sized beds and a lovely shower with robes included.
The real advantage is that it's a five minute drive from the west entry to Yellowstone and, when you return after a long day at the park, you are just 5 minutes stroll from the restaurants and shops of West yellowstone.
The only negative - Cabin 20 is an adjoining cabin with Cabin 21. when they were is, we could virtually hear them breathing !!
Was it value for money? Maybe that's a tough call - but it was certainly a delightful place to come back to after a busy day
