We stayed at a cabin in the Yellowstone Lake area. The lodge is awesome. We sat out on the covered porch when we checked in and then after dinner and before bed, it is peaceful, just beautiful. They have lots of rocking chairs available. There is a cafeteria, a bar, fireplace and lots of comfy seating, gift shop. You can take a great easy walk around the lake area to Lake hotel area. We saw bison right in the field in front of the lake. That area is not for hiking it is for wildlife. We only had one night at the lake lodge cabins and totally enjoyed our stay.
