A recent bad experience at a Custer State Park lodge in South Dakota reminded me that we should give Roosevelt Lodge Cabins some big love for the three times we've stayed there. Can't rave enough about these cozy 1920s cabins -- full of history, charm and simplicity, and a tremendous value. What else do you need but a solid bed, table, woodburning stove and a few hooks on which to hang your stuff? The shared bathrooms are always clean and uncrowded, the dining room has great food (we always tip our hat to the noble TR's photo over the desk when entering, snickering slightly at the elk antlers some wag placed right above it), and the international staff is always wonderful. Roosevelt's peaceful evening porch sitting, a staple of good lodge life, is outstanding. There are several great trails nearby; some of our favorites are the Yellowstone Picnic Area Trail, which has outstanding river and meadow views, and the Lost Lake Trail beginning right behind the lodge. This is our favorite area in the park, much less crowded than Old Faithful, Canyon or Lake, and we love the proximity to the Lamar Valley and its wonderful early-morning and evening wildlife. You'll go to sleep to the sound of crickets and coyotes and wake to the lovely chirping of birds. Can't wait to go back.
