the thrill of planning! Yellowstone and Grand Canyon lodging

Jump to last reply

I’m not sure if I’m driving myself insane, or actually loving the thrill of the hunt!! Planning our 17 day vacation has been daunting, to say the least, and it’s consuming me, and my time!

Yellowstone lodging (Old Faithful, specifically) was, of course, all booked but I’ve called (only 3 times actually) and stalked the website. First got an opening at a Lake Lodge cabin, but decided pretty quickly to cancel that. Then got a handicapped room at the Old Faithful Lodge, frontier cabin a couple weeks ago. And JUST NOW found the Old Faithful Inn geyser-side room available on the website. It’s $237 and the decision was pretty easy to say no, but I was thrilled that I had succeeded in getting it IF we had wanted it! haha

I’m hopeful that our handicapped Frontier cabin at OF Lodge will be a bit bigger than the standard ones, and quite a bargain at $113. I’ve actually been wanting a Western Cabin at the OF Snow Lodge, but I think the handicapped Frontier Cabin at the Lodge is the better value. (any opinions on this??)

AND last week I scored a canyon-side room at the Thunderbird Lodge at the Grand Canyon. So excited about that.

I’m still whittling away at the mini-van price. It started at $818 with NO movement for a month, and as of tonight I have it down to $585 (outrageous taxes/fees included). ($169/wk). I'm hoping to get it down to $150/wk.

THE THRILL OF THE HUNT!!! Anyone else enjoy it?
