It was like stepping back into the 1930's or 40's when we walked into our cute cabin. We were greeted by elk roaming in front of the hotel where we checked in. Friendly employees from the front desk to the room service. Comfy beds and...More

So this is our second stay here. The first time was during the summer about four years ago. They have since updated the lobby (I believe the updates are more than just the lobby but that is the extent to what we saw).
We stayed here for 2 nights (start and end of the Couples Winter Wonderland Adventure). For some reason we got a one bed room, while every other couple in our group got 2 queen bed room. When I asked for the bigger room (nearly room...More

Roads in the park begin to open in mid to late April. The Yellowstone National Park web site lists April 20, 2018 as the opening date for the West Entrance to Madison, Mammoth to Old Faithful, Norris to Canyon. The road from the North Entrance (Gardiner) to the Northeast Entrance (Cooke City) is open year- round but may close temporarily due to inclement weather and other reasons. This road takes you through Lamar Valley, which affords you an excellent chance of viewing wildlife. Because this road intersects with the Mammoth Hot Springs area, I would have to think you'd be able to walk the boardwalks to view these incredible terraces. Lodging in the park doesn't open up until the end of April, so your best bet for lodging close to the park would be in the town of Gardiner. Even though the road to Old Faithful and the geyser basins on the west side of the park aren't scheduled to open until April 20th, don't give up hope that it's a mild snow season and that they could open up earlier. Also, pack winter clothing as weather can change dramatically there. Even if you can't get to experience all of Yellowstone, what you do experience will leave you yearning to come back. Again, if you haven't done so already, visit the Yellowstone National Park government web site. Have fun on your adventure!
