Spring in Yellowstone National Park means the arrival of newborn wildlife and colorful wildflowers and a discounted price on Frontier Cabins at the Lake Yellowstone Hotel and Cabins. Concessioner Xanterra Parks & Resorts has reduced the rate on Frontier Cabins to $99 through May 24. The Lake Yellowstone Hotel opens for the summer season May 11.
Built in the 1920s, all of the Frontier Cabins have been renovated within the last few years. All cabins – some freestanding and others duplex-style units – include two double beds and a private bathroom with a shower. The cabins, normally priced at $135 per night, are just a short walk from the main hotel building.
The cabin discount occurs in advance of the park’s busiest months of June, July and August and is a good choice for travelers who prefer to visit the park when there are fewer visitors.
Springtime in Yellowstone is also a popular time for wildlife viewing because it is when newborn elk and bison calves, wolf pups, bear cubs and other animals make their debuts.
Lake Yellowstone Hotel was completed in 1891 and is the oldest hotel in the park. A guestroom wing and the sunroom were added in the 1920s. A massive renovation of the hotel completed in 1990 restored the elegant hotel to its 1920s grandeur.
