Canyon Cabins Review

Unattractive and unassuming, these pine-frame cabins are arranged in clusters of four, six, and eight. All have private bathrooms, and the fancier ones also have knotty-pine bed frames and other nice touches. Travelers pick this place based on its location—in the heart of the park less than 30 minutes away from Lamar Valley, Hayden Valley, and Yellowstone Lake. You can park close to your cabin door, so you don't have far to schlep your luggage. A trail takes you to a scenic overlook—it's through bear country, so make a lot of noise and carry bear spray. Three restaurants and a bar are nearby.

    Stayed here one night on our honeymoon to Yellowstone. Check-in took a bit longer than at other places in the park, but the employee spent time explaining dining choices to us which was nice. Cabin was clean upon arrival and felt spacious. We could hear the people next door from the bathroom, but it wasn't overly loud to be annoying. There was a heater in the room which was great considering it rained on us that night! Felt good to come back to a warm room. Easy check-out; overall a great stay!

    Back to nature...

    Don't expect the comfort of a chain...
    But Frontier cabins are large, clean and quite.
    Bathrooms are showers but of good size.
    No phone, no A/C, no TV.
    We were in M2-2 and M2-4, far from traffic.
    Price is correct for a park : 96 $/night.
    Decent restaurant for dinner, no good breakfast in the restaurant, the deli or the small diner in the shop...

    comfortable

    It would have been nice to have some outdoor furniture or tables to eat outside. We had a large family gathering with four cabins next to each other, but there was nowhere to comfortably gather.
