Spring in Yellowstone National Park means the arrival of newborn wildlife and colorful wildflowers and – at least this year – 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 are normally priced at $135 per night.
“The Yellowstone Lake region is a particularly popular location for hikers and photographers,” said Rick Hoeninghausen, director of sales and marketing for Xanterra Parks & Resorts in Yellowstone. “There are many trailheads near the hotel for hikers, and photographers are out daily with cameras at the ready to capture the Lake area’s beautiful vistas and roaming wildlife.”
Hoeninghausen recommends travelers book the cabins as soon as possible as the offer will end without notice.
Guests staying in the cabins are just a short walk from the main hotel building, with its charming 1920s-style sunroom overlooking the lake, outstanding dining room and aquatic-themed gift shop.”
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. “Generally, families visit during the prime summer months, so we typically see more couples and older visitors during the spring months,” said Hoeninghausen.
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.
